Activities in the past and present

When we are young, back in 6 to 12 years old, we use to do lots of activities with friends without worrying so much because we don’t take anything for granted. For example, playing hide and seek is costless activity that most of us grow up with. But now, when reaching teenagers or adult stage, everything needs money.

I will break up the parts:
Kindergarten and Primary School = play game tag at no cost
Secondary school = go for food in coffee shop to chit chat only cost RM1-2
College = Go to restaurant eat for chit chat cost RM10-20
University = Go to celebrate cost RM30-50

The question is do we need money to maintain or enhance friendship/relationship? YES!
Keep in touch with friends use phone/internet need money, go out will even use more money such as transport and foods. Even though I have reject countless invitations, sometimes it is so embarrassed to let people treats me because I have no enough money. In some cases, it is cheaper to find your old friends than getting a new friend these days.

Nowadays, more people want to become “friend” because of advantage they can get. Luckily, good friends will care about your financial status unlike some people who are inconsiderate about your financial problem and insist you to go out to spend money on activities.

All these can be summarize into 1 line:
No working > no money > no talk> no friends

Photography – A life change

Sometimes we never knew why we love what we are doing and yet we addicted to it without bother to know what the reason is. Relax and sit back, and ask yourself one simple question, how my life changed, before and after joining the photography world?
As for me, it opens a door for me to see and love the beauty this earth still has to offer.

Picture 1: Twilight alongside the river

Ask me, how many times I look into the sky and what time can I see the sun set, sun rise, twilight and moon. I never bother about it until I have my first DSLR camera. Seeing and catching the nature was so amazing and refreshing.

Before I own a camera, I am referring to a camera that allows you to have full control on your setting. I always thought it is pointless just to capture a subject with a phone because it just a picture, nothing special, but I bet for difference with DSLR or any other camera with megapixel higher than 8MP and manual setting. The feel and experience by observing the image captured was jaw dropping. Its feel like the color of the picture pop out the subject to be so life and real right in your eyes.

There is no end in photography, there is no limit to your creativity, subjects are in your surroundings, the room you are living can be your studio, and the sun can be your light source. All you need is press the shutter button and see with you own eyes.

I love pork

After few months away from pork, Today, I finally eat it, in the most delicious way that’s it.

Pork belly or known as 3 layers, also give you 3 different textures. Never forget the crispy skin, the tender meat, and lastly the juicy chewy melted in ur mouth.

I marinate it with apple cider, salt, pepper, sugar.

I don’t know why, but it taste great with honey, it was a great fusion.
