"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

The Wind Cries For A New Flag to Fly!

I wish I've enough time...  to see a new flag flies...

This flag is torn. A new flag is needed.

Torn and tattered
Fluttering in the wind
A symbol of hopelessness
Of faded dreams
The storm rages
Tore it to shreds

Who planted the proud flag?
Why did he leave it to neglect?

The wind cries
For a new flag to fly!

  2. 1000 Reasons
    The election is over. The fever is not. The blame begins. The Prime Minister blamed it on the “Chinese Tsunami” when the Chinese constitute only 25% of the population and 53% voted against the government. Where is the 1Malaysia concept now? The largest pro-Government Malay newspaper asks – “What more do the Chinese want?” I could answer that with one word – “Justice”. The Malaysian Government component Chinese party started to tear down their service centers in a childish spite against the very people they claim to serve. Where is their sincerity? All this coming from a party that is supposed to have “won” the election (albeit through allegedly dubious means). Did they actually “lose” it? Yes, in many ways. That is why they are blaming the voters instead. Sad.

    Your words are always so powerful , your words variant of soul to your picture. Yes you are right, what we want is JUSTICE but not only Chinese, so are the Malay, the Indian, the Kadazan, the Iban.. and ALL the Malaysian who put their vote to PAKATAN RAKYAT!!!!

    it makes me sad... what you say here...
    I push down anger and disappointment... frustration and fear... a feeling of helplessness...as I look at my own so called congress...
    so when I see this happening to you... it rises again... but...to be honest... it rises more intensly... we have some advantages over what the youtube videos showed in your election... so blatant... so ... I will use that word...yes... so evil...
    it is not just... it is not fair... it is not right... how can I say it...
    I feel helpless to see that... and ...
    feel so badly for your people...
    very depressed...to see that

    A beautiful, powerful and poignant illustration and expression Thou. A tattered and torn flag of despair and the wind cries out for a new flag. I hope you will eventually see the light of hope at the end of this tunnel of despair. And may truth and justice prevail in the end. Take care my friend. Thinking of you and wishing you all the best
