Hello, tell us a bit about yourself and your Lomographic journey.
I’m a normal guy who enjoy singing and photo shooting! I’m currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in one of the universities in Malaysia. Well, I heard about Lomography often from my friends. One day, I decided to get myself my very first Holga during a visit to the shopping mall. To be frank, I accidentally brought the camera that day, but now, I’m really addicted to it!
Are you part of any local community, and since when have you been active in the community?
I’m part of Lomo Idiot Organization (LIO) which is located in Kuala Lumpur!
Did you join any outings, workshops, and events organized by this community?
Twice. The first event would be the outing to Bukit Bintang and Pavillion. The second one is an outing to Bukit Jalil International Stadium.
What the best part about shooting with a bunch of Lomography enthusiasts?
Fun, sharing, and caring! The chance for making new friends. A bunch of fun people using film cameras, capturing moments without much care about how people looking at us! Analogue rockssss!
Do you enjoy shooting alone or do you prefer shooting together with the community?
Hmm…quite subjective. Some people prefer to shoot alone. For me, anything will do! As long as we love films and we help each other during the shoots!
Were you born in Sabah and which part of Sabah do you stay?
Pure Sabahan! Sabah tanah airku! I born in a small town call Keningau. Currently I’m located either in Kampar or Kuala Lumpur.
Tell us what you love the most about Sabah.
The people! They are naive and pure! Hahaha! I’m no kidding!
What is the food you love the most in Sabah?
Soto mee, Hakka nyon tao fu.
Where would you bring your friends to go when they visit you at Sabah
Kundasang, the closest village to Mount Kinabalu. Nice scenery and weather and it’s suitable for any outing or spend quality time with your close ones.
Where do you develop your film at Sabah? Do you have any other recommendations and what is the price and any other specific notes?
Oops! I used to develop my films in Kuala Lumpur.
Thanks for your time and recommendation! Before we wrap things up, do you mind letting us know which Lomography product is your favorite and why?
