Nenasi, Pahang: A Pure Fishing Village

2011-09-19 1

Nenasi is a fishing village that is so meaningful to me. Why? This is the place where my grandfather started his family.

My grandfather was first born in China in early the 1900s. He came to Malaya when he was young. After a few years, he decided to settle down in Nenasi. He married my grandmother and she gave birth to 10 children. My father was born in this village too. I’m the third generation in Malaysia.

When I was a child, my father often brought me back to the village to visit my grandfather. We stayed in the wooden house, with my uncle and aunt and lovely cousins. I had a great time in this village. I still remember that I like to take sweets from my grandfather’s convenience store. I had fun playing around the village with my cousins.

My grandparents moved to Kuantan in the 1990s, and passed away in the late 1990s. Now, the house is still there but has been abandoned.

Abandoned with full of sweet memories.

The village is still pure, because no major changes have occurred. Villagers still stay in their wooden houses, the roads are still the same, still a lot of coconut trees around the house, fishing boats are still parked at the riverside. During noon, the village is silent, you can only hear the ocean breeze and the wind blowing.

There is only one Chinese primary school there. Most of the villagers send their children to study in this school. But pupils are getting lesser, most of the new generations have moved out from the village.

Sometimes I still come back to the village because of some personal matters. I love the scenery, I love the surrounding, and I love the pureness of the village.

Maybe not much activity for visitors but the attractive scenery and pureness of the village is always there and welcomes your arrival. For me, this village is full of memories.

    Janne Parviainen: Light Magician

    Janne Parviainen is a 35-year-old artist from Helsinki, Finland. He is both a painter and a photographer but sometimes, he swaps his painting tools for light and creates illuminated pieces of art. Abandoned places are his favorite places for shoots because, according to him, "there's so much lived life and stories in abandoned places, they are the lost diaries and photos turned to dust of lives that once bloomed."

    Khalik Allah: A Halo in the Darkness of Night

    He calls himself Khalik Allah – a creator, a limitless, timeless, infinite being. He documents life as it comes and goes, as it hurts, as it glows inside the protagonists of his stories. His photography and videography take us deep into the never-ending nights of Harlem, a place where the darkness might seem to reach its peak. Yet, he is capturing light in its purest form, reminding us that it lies in everyone’s eyes, within everyone’s self.

    A Salute to the Masters: Ice Skating (A Tribute to Monte Fresco)

    This article is dedicated to one of the finest British sport photographers, Monte Fresco. In his 30 years of reportage for the Daily Mirror, he took some of the most iconic photographs in sporting history. He covered football, tennis, and boxing. But it is his ice skating pictures that I am most fascinated with. Using my own lens, I give him a modern tribute.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Lake Toba

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.
