It was the 10th of June 5:30am in the morning the mighty Sun is about to rise, me and my crew were scheduled to shoot the drone shot and some establishing shots of the church (Presentation of the Child Jesus) at BF Holmes. As soon at we set-up the gear the sky doesn’t seem to agree with us, then as we shot the first few minutes of video it started to rain. I think to myself that this will be a very interesting wedding day. Continue reading
The Metalcore scene is not possible without the founding father – Earth Crisis. I’m not fond of labeling music genres but basically it’s hardcore but more heavy and metal, if it makes any sense. This band is one of my inspiration when I was in college (until now), they’re discography is still on my iTunes music list. The Victory Records Era is one of the exciting years in the hardcore and punk scene. With likes of Snapcase and Strife they took the hardcore scene by storm. It also started the “Straight Edge” vegan movement as a lifestyle and later on as a hardcore sub-genre with lyrics emphasizing on advocating animal rights and anti-global warming sentiments. As time goes by the Metalcore style music has change to the more melodic sound that we here today. If you really want to here Metalcore on its purest form pick-up the album Firestorm and listen to Earth Crisis now!!! Continue reading
Sick Of It All – Step Down (Footage from Asian Tour 2015 SG)
After 7 years SOIA came back to the Little Red Dot City to conquer the hearts of all hardcore fans. It was sweet, it was nostalgic, it was brutal. With hardcore bands like King Ly Chee (HKHC) and Straight Forward (LCHC) you’ll never go wrong, top it up with Oi punk/punk rock bands like The Bois and Iman’s League the energy just keeps on over flowing.
KOMYSB2015 is an annual event sponsored by the Royal Family of Alor Setar Kedah Malaysia. This event became popular to nearby countries including Thailand, Singapore, Indonesia, Philippines and also Japan, not because of the generous prizes but because of the camaraderie and for charity.

The good thing about this event is that all proceed goes to charity that helps unfortunate youths with financial problems and at the same time engaging them to a more progressive way of spending their talents and hobbies.

I always turn down last minute video and photo of events more so for weddings. A wedding is an important part of a couple’s life so it’s a bit tricky not to mess it up for the clients, that’s why I don’t accept a last-minute wedding shoot. My wife talked me into it and we did made through the event without any fuss, besides I love shooting weddings, telling their love story even on a brief moment is magical not just for the couple but for me and for others as well. This is not your typical church wedding or garden wedding, it’s has a more humble set-up than we usually see on videos and films. I’m still happy we’ve done it, and even in a very short notice we manage to pull it off. Hope you like this simple wedding video. If you like what you see, please do follow my work , like, subscribe or comment. Cheers!
We have a saying that a baby is a blessing, and I guess it’s true, this new life brings joy to the couple, the family and the people surrounding it. It’s always a joy to capture this moment that is truly a miracle. I’m not a sentimental person but bearing a child is the most wonderful thing in the world. I’m just glad to have shot this lovely couple and their soon-to-be child that happens to be my Godson. I apologize for the late posting. Hope you enjoy the photos. Continue reading
I’ll be smirking when I see Moms and Dads acting like lunatics when their kids are performing on stage. I told myself that I would never be like them Stage Fathers and Mothers pushing their kids to perform. Well I guess this is how it feels like being one. It felt like I’m the one on the spot, anxious and at the same time feeling proud of my daughter performing on stage. I don’t really worry about her having mistakes, that’s where good memories are made – beautiful flaws in life makes the perfect Kodak moment. This post is a bit late but still worth sharing. Hope you enjoy this video. Credits to my wife for doing the B-roll shots. Cheers!
This photography workshop was the 222nd of Manuel “Manny” Librodo. Imagine how many people he had inspired throughout the years. The press releases and testimonials about him proves that he’s not just an awesome photographer but a people person as well. A cool guy if you know him and a true mentor, knowing that he’s a full-time teacher (in an international school in Bangkok) makes his workshop more upbeat and efficient – the reason why people are coming back for more. The experience they get from each and every workshop is very different from one another. For the patrons it’s not just about learning photography but a camaraderie that leads to a good relationship with Manny and the crew. Definitely there will be more workshops to come and I’ve heard that a book will be publish soon, better watch out for that. This workshop was organized by the hard working Team of Walls and Frames in cooperation with MOE.
I’m thinking of a good introduction for this awesome band but I don’t know how to start. Maybe I’ll start when I first heard one of their song. Once upon a time there was a radio station called 97.1 WLS FM (I also don’t know why I even tuned in here, LA 105 and NU 107 just started) this was on my high-school years, fourth year to be exact, every Saturday night the radio station feature songs or bands that aren’t usually aired on regular basis, genres like hard rock, metal and grunge were not the norm ’cause they usually air pop music and other junk, this was also the time when Nirvana’s hitting stardom. When I first heard this Alice in Chains song I was already dozing off to dreamland, suddenly I was awaken by the strong lyrics of the song and how surreal the whole music was then the words “I Stay Away” echoed in my brain, in that instance I became a big fan.
