As usual I was a little bit late to update my blog, this past few week I was quite busy with my Mini Photoshop Workshops for a small group of people. The reason Why I do my Mini Photoshop Workshops is because some people just could not make it into my Official Photoshop Workshop due to time factor and also location. So to those people who have problem about “Time and Location” I suggest to them to email me and let me know when is possible for them to attend my workshops and that is when the idea of Mini Photoshop Workshops start.

About my son picture above, I took that shot on the 22nd of July 2009 when my son is one year and eleven month old, HaiQal will be two years old next August. My son is holding my first digital SLR camera Nikon D70s, I’ve captured many important or historical event with that camera.

His photographs had been and will be published more than a thousand times. Every time we celebrate the Independence Day, the media will publish all these pictures again and again. Business enterprises, large-format picture printers, photo treatment companies will repeatedly claim credits as well as reaping cash of the pictures they use but the original artist remains uncredited. ( Shutter2History )

I was very lucky to have met Malaysia great photographer Wong Swee Lin at his house, not many people here in Malaysia knew or have heard about him but to those who were born after our Independence Day 1957 sure enough have seen historical photograph taken by him, he have cover three Malaysia Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak and Tun Hussein Onn. As a Malaysia we truly appreciated what you have done for our country, without people like you we can only here about the story without any pictures to see.

I don’t want to write long story about Wong Swee Lin here because it was too long but if you are interested to know more about him, I suggest you visit HERE

First of all I would like to apologize to all of you who keep coming here but upset with nothing new to read here, actually I was a little bit busy lately and to make the thing worse is that my Apple MacBook Pro crash on 30th June, as usual each time when I woke up in the morning I will turn on my computer to watch the news and browse randomly on the internet but on that day when I hit the power button on my Mac, nothing happen, just a small sound, very short one and that’s it. My MacBook Screen blank, I try few times but nothing happen and I gave up so I bring my Mac to Apple Centre and what a shock, they told me that My MacBook Pro Logic Board need a replacement and to make the matter worse, I don’t have Apple Care, so I need to pay a heavy price for new Logic Board.

I have a lot of stories to tell and to share but sometimes I just don’t have much times to wrote, my works keep me away, for those of you who just get to know me, let me tell you that I was working full time as a photographer for the Government of Malaysia but I don’t quite often post my official assignment picture here, I just don’t want you to get bored. As an official photographer for the Government of Malaysia I cover politic or politician a lot especially our Prime Minister, his deputy and other Minister and we also cover our King function.

But here on my blog I just like to share a lighter side of me, I need a break from too much politics and that’s why from time to time I go out and shoot something else like a beautiful lady. It was just for fun. I like to Blog but I just can’t update it quite often, I wish I can. I hope my picture will be the extension of what I’m trying to say. Picture above was taken by my friend at the Marriott Hotel in Santiago Chile, you can see clearly a reflection of the Andes Mountain on the glass, it is very beautiful indeed. My job sometimes take me away from my family and the only  thing that made me feel just like at home is because of technology called the internet. Almost everyday when I’ve free time, I will Skype with my family back home in Kuala Lumpur, time different between Santiago and Kuala Lumpur is twelve hours, very easy to remember, a  different night and day…
