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.

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.
