Hean Boo Thean Procession 2014   Leave a comment


Hean Boo Thean Procession 2014

When we left the house tonight (11th October, 2014), it was raining so heavily like last Friday. When we reached the road entrance to the 玄母殿(HEAN BOO THEAN) Temple, the rain slowly turned into a light drizzle when the Main Float came out while I put on my rain-coat. Got my other camera and placed under my rain-coat cap. I am off shooting the various floats along the main road, Weld Quay. A few minutes later, the rain stopped completely. What great blessings from Kuan Yin! After shooting a while, we are off to Paya Terubong in the heavy traffic as there is another event of the World Fellowship of Buddhists to record. More ever I am one of the Vice-Chairman of this organization.

Notice the “shy” Dragon with a plastic bag over its face.

Chew Jetty at the last Sunrise of 2013   Leave a comment


I made a bee-line for the Chew Jetty at Weld Quay, Penang to shoot the last Sunrise of 2013 as today was the 31, December 2013. However, this was not to be a significant sunrise as the sun was shy to appear owing to thick hazy and cloudy condition. Though somewhat disappointed with the weather condition, I did shoot a series of photographs using my Canon EOS 70D and Canon EOS 5D Mark III using different lens and settings. Though I brought two tripods, I forgot my Manfrotto clamp so ended using a shaky tripod for some HDR photography as the wooden board-way of Chew Jetty was shaking a bit as the incoming waves were pounding the wooden stilts softly amd gently. Hope you like these photographs as the yacht in the distance was leaking and leaning sideways due to sinking slowly into the sea.

Having been used to full-framed DSLR, photos taken by non-fullframed DSLRs seemed noisy … cannot be pampered at all in life.

Sunrise over Penang Harbour   Leave a comment


When one is taking sunrise or sunset, patience is an essential key element. The shy was overcast and cloudy as I was about to call it a morning of photo shooting, the orange ball suddenly appeared over the horizon. And, I started singing the song ” Here Comes the sun ” happily.

Well, it is NOT about feeling “fishy” about the things going at Chew Jetty, Weld Quay, Penang but just got this crazy idea about shooting Chew Jetty in my fish-eyed lens 8 – 15 mm. Weird looking photos but hoping “somebody loves it ” as the song goes.

Procession of the Sri Maha Sakthi Muneeswarar Jaibhavani Devasthanam Hindu Temple, Weld Quay, Penang   Leave a comment

Procession of the Sri Maha Sakthi Muneeswarar Jaibhavani Devasthanam Hindu Temple at the Reclamation Area, Weld Quay, Penang took place this evening of Saturday, 28 Juy, 2012. I was deeply moved and touched by the act of these Hindus as they even paid respect to the Taoist Diety in this Taoist Temple along the Procession’s route. This is mutual respect and religious tolerance in a multi-racial, multi-cultural and multi-religious society in Malaysia, in general and in Penang, in particular.

This is a series of the abnormally low tide encountered during a short photoshoot with my nephew from KL on Sunday, 12 February, 2012. It was very hot and hazy thus affecting the qualities of the photos.

Lim Clan Jetty’s Phor Thor or Hungry Ghost Festival 2011   2 comments


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The atmosphere and lighting condition at the Phor Thor Celebrations ( aka Hungry Ghost Festival ) was very different from the usual “run-of-the-mill” celebrations in other part of George Town. The main altar and prayer hall of the Tai Su Yah or King of the Hades is rather reflective of the netherworld – dark and lighted by the use of ultra-violet lights. However, clever use of reflective paint on the paper idol, certain highlights were indeed prominently displayed. An interesting visual effect was seen as shown in the series of the photographs taken without tripod. Please do NOT blame me if there is “noise” or something “extra” in these unaltered and unedited photographs. If you need to complain, please do so to the Tai Su Yah at Lim Clan Jetty as the Diety is also worshipped at a Shrine next to this make-shift shelter.
