Sarawak State Library

I love this library. Though it is far from the town, it is nice and beautiful. Not only is it a good place for studying, it is also a good place for relaxing.

Sarawak State Library – the place I spent most of my time with when I was in my form 5, preparing for my SPM.

When I was in my form 5, my friends and I always came here to do our revision. It was like almost everyday that we came here to study, especially during the last 3 months before the actual SPM exam. Sometimes we came after school hours, sometimes we sneak out of the school during break time, and we came almost every weekend. But after my SPM, I seldom come here anymore.

The library is surrounded by beautiful landscape. Coming here is just like coming to a park. It has a big lake, areas for public performances and art exhibitions, a playground, picnic areas, a scenic drive, pedestrian walkways and bicycle lanes strewn with trees, shrubs and flower gardens. People can always come here to enjoy themselves.

After so many years, I went back to this place again about a month ago. It was still as beautiful as few years ago, or even better.

    The World According to Herr Willie – Pripyat, The Last City of the CCCP (Pt.2)

    Pripyat is a modern day Atlantis. The inhabitants of the Soviet town had to run from the nuclear disaster and therefore it has been preserved more or less in the state of 1986. I made my way up to the North of Ukraine thirty years after the catastrophe. This is the second part of this adventure.

    Giving Camera Movement "Character"

    The best films from then and today do not only rely on good scripts and the arcs in storytelling. Visual storytelling is 50% of a film, too, and it's the scene that should say it all. Subjective perspective is one of the approaches to make compelling cinematography.
