Pantai Cahaya Bulan (PCB)

Hari ini dalam sejarah. Buat pertama kali nya aku dan famili pergi ke PCB tapi tak makan colek! Wei biar betik? Memang betik sebab we had late lunch and went straight to the beach so masih terasa kenyang bila ke sana.

Medina was really looking forward to play at the beach. I bought her a kite but she only played it for about 10 minutes then she got bored. Sand was more fun. Emma on the other hand had no clue where she was but man she had no fear! Most of the time she likes to follow whatever her kakak is doing but this time around she went extra miles. Emma went into the water and dunked her head twice! Punya lah terkejut beruk aku terus angkat dia letak tepi. Tak serik dia masuk lagi dalam air rendam diri sendiri. Kelakar pun ada. Aku dah la dengan kamera lagi, phone lagi.. memang kalut. So tak sempat nak rekod moments masa Emma tenggelamkan kepala dan her whole body dalam air. Betul betul berani budak ni. But I’m glad they all had fun. Dekat KL memang tak dapek lah nak main pasir macam ni. That’s why everytime balik KB I will try my best to make a trip to PCB. Sekejap pun jadi lah.

Hari ni 1 May hari pekerja jadi aku expect visitors extra ramai tapi masa we all sampai surprisingly it was not that busy. By “not that busy” I mean, within 5 minutes dah dapat park kereta. Kalau tak, mimpi lah nak park dekat dekat. To those of you yang nak pergi PCB, I suggest you go awal sikit say 4.30pm or 5pm macam tu sebab masih belum pack so tak sesak sangat masa sampai tu. If it’s a sunny day, time tu the best sebab matahari tengah panas terik so bagi aku best lah kalau nak ambil gambar hehe. Unless korang tak suka panas then too bad lah haha. Biasanya local akan mula keluar jam 6pm ish sebab masa tu cuaca dah redup dan tak panas sangat. Sedaplah nak lepak lepak.

Candat Sotong & Pulau Kapas

It started when 4 of us were too busy with life and had no time to think like we did 13 years back. Our WhatsApp group remained silent for a few months. One fine day, Achik (plum guy red shirt) broke the silence. He said, “lamo tok kukuk group nih”. It means, it’s been a while since our last conversation in the group. Then suddenly one by one started to respond Achik. Then Along (the kopiah guy) came out with this idea. He said, “why don’t we take a break and go do something out of our comfort zone”. Since he lives in Marang, Terengganu he suggested candat sotong activity.

At first I was like, what the hell is candat sotong (not that I’m a bimbo). Then I started googling and thinking this is not bad at all. Brand new experience for all of us. So we started looking the right dates. Alang (the nelayan look) was a bit reluctant to join at first considering he is always busy and workaholic. So, 3 of us had to convince Alang that this would be the best thing to do in conjunction with our reunion too. The last time we did something together was 13 years ago and that’s it.

In 2 days, we found the right dates, everyone agreed and decided to give it a shot. The plan was so random that when I told my wife I was going for candat sotong in a week time she laughed so hard. I still don’t get it until today.

So, the package is you get a boat, their people will take you to the ocean and help you with the activity. Although you have zero knowledge, it’s not a problem because these people will advice what to do. We took off from Marang jetty and overnight in the middle of the ocean. The next day we packed up and went straight to Pulau Kapas for a relaxation. We were very fortunate because the weather was perfect. The photos tell it all.

Man, I’m writing this at 2.40 am in the morning and thinking to stop right here. Wish I had more energy to write the details of the journey but all I could think of now is sleep. Hope you enjoy the photos and if you love them, it is available for purchase as well.

Cheerio!

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.

Koh Lipe, Thailand

My friends and I recently took a trip to Koh Lipe, Thailand. It was an amazing experience regardless the weather condition to say the least. I could imagine if the weather was bright and shining, it would have been extremely wonderful. That did not happen until the last day before we left. You can see the photos look different towards the end.

However, we enjoyed our 4D3N stay at Bundhaya Resort. Customer service was fantastic. The food? Damn I would come back for that. There were 2 places we went everyday for snacking and coffee. I don’t remember the name of these places but they make great Brazilian coffee and Nutella bread. Look for that if you’re there.

Don’t forget to make your way to sunrise and sunset beach or if you’re staying on that side of the island, it should be in front of you lol. Amazing view and photo opportunity. All in all, I would come back to Koh Lipe for many reasons with hope that the weather will be kind to me in the next visit.

For photographers, this set was shot on Contax 645 + Pro 400H and Nikon F6 + Superia Xtra 400 and Tudorcolor XLX 200.
