Malaysia Day

2012-09-16

Today is Malaysia Day. 49 years ago, on this day, Malaya, North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore got together to establish the Malaysian federation.

The formation of the new federation was planned to occur on June 1, 1963, but was later postponed to August 31, 1963, in order to coincide with the sixth “Hari Merdeka” (Independence Day). Several issues happened and delayed the declaration to September 16 of the same year. Source from Wiki

Malaysia is the multicultural country that brings us a lot of differences compared to other countries. From languages we speaks, to our food habits, or from living style to the fashion sense, we are all different among different the races in Malaysia. But similar to the weather here in the country, everybody is friendly and it’s always full of warmth. With one same food, different races would cook it differently. When we are all different, but still, we are all the same. Watch this short video about Malaysia Day, to get know us better.

Happy 49th Birthday Malaysia!

    How to Develop Photos on Stone in a Darkroom

    I have always loved the idea of seeing my photos on stone and other natural materials. So, a few months ago, I began googling how it could be done. This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!

    Photographic Pairs

    When a photographer encounters a pair, an instinct rushes in, "Is this a special, intimate moment I just stumbled on?" Or else, those accidents of two objects, two birds, two swaying plants camping together especially for your photo. This might not be the case, but it's still a pleasant thing for patterns and quirks to find their way into an everyday shot.
