Putrajaya Hot Air Balloon Fest 2012

I guess the first question that may go thru your mind after scrolling down this posting very very fast…… “What the H@$! is this guy thinking, taking BnW photos in such a colourful place?”

and maybe the second question……. “Where are the balloons floating gracefully up in the sky?”

Well guys……. to answer these two questions…… I do have some shots in colour and hopefully some with balloons floating up in heaven…… the only thing, I still got one shot left in the camera and don’t know when I will send them to the lab, when it gets finished…….. Anyway, before that actually happens, enjoy my crappy shots……..

POSHE

POSHE or Positive Shelter Homes, is a shelter home for kids with HIV Positive run by a lovely lady Wan Hava or better known to some of us as Mak Wan.

At first I was thinking of putting up a set of photographs but as some of them are still school going kids, and with the widely negative perception about HIV positive, I decided to just put one up.

Siti

Siti, the little girl of the home, was left behind by her parent when she was a baby, as she was HIV positive, she was taken by Mak Wan when she was 8 months old to be loved. She has Cerebral Palsy.

If you are interested in giving them a helping hand you can contact Mak Wan at:

Walls IV: KUL Sign Fest 2012, Part I

I actually missed the weekend the festival was held, as I had to join an organised community service with a few of my mates.

Went the next weekend and had a one hour walk around the banks of the Klang River…… and as usual, I will leave the roll on the table for a few weeks before finally developing it.

I’ve decided not to name any of the work of art except for the first one this time.

She may love color….. but I prefer black and white. This graffiti is part of the KUL Sign Fest 2010 that was retained as part of the Wall of Honour……

I Love Color
