Tell us something about yourself.
“So tell me, where do you come from?” “I’m from Malaysia!” “…” moments of awkward silence.. This is what usually happens when I tell someone where do I come from. People need to know more about Malaysia! We have good sun, nice beaches, yummy food, etc but most importantly great people! Lomography Malaysia is doing a good job promoting Malaysia! Am I running out of topic? But that’s me! I’m quirky and sometimes unpredictable! Just like a Lomography camera!

How many Lomographic cameras do you have in your collection?
I have my Fisheye No.2 White first, then I got myself my first LC-A+, following by my Diana Mini White (i love white!) and Instax Mini 7s. Recently added a new Horizon Perfekt (still struggling with it though) and Fisheye Hello Kitty (too adorable to resist!). Planning to get LC-Wide and La Sardina too and last but not least LomoKino. FOR SURE!

Since you are a film camera fanatic, why Fisheye No.2 is your favorite among all?
I love pictures taken by my Fisheye No.2. I don’t have to be creative or artistic to take a good picture, it just does all the work for me! I’m so flattered whenever people tell me that the pictures taken by me are awesome! (Of course, I share my secret with them! The future is definitely analogue!) Also I love my Fisheye because I’ve influenced at least 6-7 of my friends to get into Lomography just by my Fisheye shots!

Describe the Fisheye No.2 in 5 words.
Quirky, Unpredictable, Charm, Supreme, Loyal.

Which of your own Lomographic shot taken by ""Fisheye No. 2":http://shop.lomography.com/cameras/fisheye-cameras is your favorite and why?
I had no idea why the picture appeared to be blurry but that’s why I love it! That was taken under the Eiffel Tower, and it was my first visit in Europe. I told myself that I have to come back again and here I am!

    Lomography Fisheye No.2: Seven Years of Wonder

    Exactly seven years ago, I bought this camera from Indonesia's local Lomography community. I remember having some savings in my bank account and just spending it all on this camera. At that time, I browsed the microsite for the Lomography Fisheye No.2 and immediately fell in love with it! Coincidentally, my friend who introduced me to Lomography just bought this same camera for his birthday. My life has changed ever since I had the Fisheye, my first lomographic camera.

    Journey to the Ends of the Earth: From the Arctic to Antarctica

    Very few of even the most intrepid travelers get to set sail to the Arctic and the Antarctic. A lomographer known to the Community as stouf, however, was able to set foot on both polar regions. While the rare opportunity to visit these uncommon destinations came in parcel with his profession, he did not forget to bring along his trusty cameras and favorite film to capture scenes from the expeditions.

    Although she is a trained photographer, Ines quit her job and continued with photography only as a hobby. Luckily she always has enough time for that. Ines creates beautiful, expressive portraits. Recently she did this in her hometown, Brunswick, and transformed the city to a real dream setting with a unique swirly bokeh. Her weapon of choice?
