If I could describe a perfect and blissful holiday, this is it. Everything went smoothly when the weather was super nice. More importantly, I have no trouble carrying my camera wherever I go. Unlike Koh Lipe, it was an unfortunate trip because of the weather condition. Nevertheless, the island was absolutely beautiful.

Langkawi on the other hand, was fabulous.

For photographers: This set was shot on Nikon F6 with Agfa Vista Plus 400.

This was probably one of the most challenging photoshoot I have ever had. It was my first time and I had no idea how to get here. It took me almost 2 hours to get to this location, Pantai Kelanang, Banting. I must thank a few people for making this shoot possible. Zamir and wife, thank you for the time you spent to show me the way and be there till end of the session. To my beloved wife Maisarah, you are my greatest supporter, my backbone. What would I do without you? I can’t thank you enough for what you have done. Nanti I belanja makan sedap-sedap okey.

My heart was telling me it was going to be a good day and it was! It was bright and sunny but only for half an hour. The rest of the session was raining and cloudy. In fact, I had to stop shooting in the middle of the session because the rain was quite heavy. All I could do was protect my cameras underneath my t-shirt. There was no place to hide. Nevertheless, it was a fantastic session.

Khairena, is a personal yoga instructor slash fitness consultant and also founder of eatcleanKL. I must thank Khai for the extraordinary yoga poses you did, time, effort and energy you gave for this session.

Koh Lipe Citizens

One of my favourite things to do while travelling is to capture faces of local citizens. To be honest, at first I was afraid to ask but when I think again, I have got nothing to lose. If they refuse, I will just walk away. Well, guess what? I was fortunate during this trip because non rejected me.

I’m not familiar with asking complete strangers to be photographed. In fact, this was my first time but all I can say is, smile, smile and smile and insya’Allah they will smile back at you. Once you’ve got the eye contact, the process becomes smoother. Most of the time they will say yes.

Most of my shots here were taken with Nikon F6 + Tudorcolor XLX 200 and Superia Xtra 400. Photo of the bald guy, shirtless with a scar line on his stomach was shot on Contax 645 + Pro 400H.

The Yohan Family

I met this Swedish couple, Yohan and Maria during my recent trip to Koh Lipe. They were having fun with the kids on the beach and I said, what a beautiful family. So, I approached and offered them if they wanted to be photographed. Obviously, the answer was yes and we spent a couple of minutes for a quick session.

I would like to thank Yohan and Maria for the wonderful session and hope you enjoy your stay in Koh Lipe and Langkawi. Till we meet again.

Nikon F6 + Superia Xtra 400.
