My friend Weechonghooi by Vicuna

15

**Name, location and age:**

Name, location and age:
My full name is Wee Chong Hooi, 25years old, born in Kota Bharu, Kelantan; and moved to Subang Jaya, Selangor since 1998.

What do you do for living?
I’m working as a fire alarm service engineer.

Find another meaning for the initials L-O-M-O that fits to your conception of lomography

L – Living

O – On

M – Magnificent

O – Occupation???

I am not sure whether this is OK or not, Hehe!

What’s your favorite lomographic rule, and why? Could you invent a 11th rule?
Favorite lomographic rule… the 10th one, ’Don’t worry about any rules’.
11th rule could be… ‘Always be Ready’ ?

What are your most inspiring themes or subject when taking pictures?
Basically everything I think I would like to keep it in memory or something that is special as like I don’t usually see. I like to capture faces of people too, especially happy moments of all friends.

What’s the picture you took you’re the most proud of or you like the most?
This is difficult, I guess is this one…
(Sorry Stéphane, I don’t know how to insert a picture here….
But this is the link ==http://s234.photobucket.com/albums/ee227/weechonghooi/?action=view&current=000007.jpg==)

I choose one that is surprised me themost, this picture is taken with my Diana F+, I’ve never really got something I thought I could get with my Diana. Nothing so special of this shot but it surprised me because I remember it wasn’t quite like this when I took the shot, just that the result means a lot to me. I couldn’t say this is the most I like, but out of so many of pictures in my whole lomo albums, I am feeling proud of this shot.

Imagine that you won 1 week holidays in the place on earth you want, and you can take only one camera and one type of film. Where do you go and what camera+film do you choose?
1 week holidays!!! Wow. Then I’ll take my LCA+ and Agfa CT Precisa 100 to my dream place, Santorini Island in Greece!!!!!!

What are your other interests (besides lomography) who make you happy?
Apart from lomography, I do a lot of aggressive inline skating in both skateparks and streets.

What’s your favorite movie? book? song?
Movie: Bad Boys II; Book: I don’t read books; Song: I’m Yours by Jason Mraz.

What’s the typical day of weechonghooi?
Wake Up, take shower, brush teeth, wash my face. Get change, and ready to go to office. Stuck in traffic jam, arrive office, go to sites for work, lunch, work, after work, go back home, stuck in the traffic again. Reach back home, turn on PC, open lomography.com, open up blogs, check out some news. Then come to dinner time, lomography.com. Night time, sleep. If the next day is weekend, then going to the skatepark, or going meeting friends, or going for lomo-outing, yeah~!!!

    Vicuna was so nice and sent us this interview. As he had been interviewed in the past (beta.lomography.com/magazine/blog/2008/05/29/behind-the-sce…) we though it was ok that he continues the project. Now it Weechonghooi that has to pick a friend and submit:)

    The World, According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.

    LC-A Goes To: Cesena and Cesenatico

    If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!

    4 Years in Paradise: Living and Learning in French Polynesia

    People seek extraordinary experiences while traveling, but not everyone gets to have an adventure of a lifetime. When lomographer Stephane Heinz (popularly known as vicuna in the Lomography community) saw the opportunity, he took the chance to travel and live miles away from his hometown in France. He and his wife, Kathi, came back home with a luggage full of valuable experiences and life lessons. Vicuna tells us about his four-year adventure in French Polynesia in this travel special.
