Paradise Found: Kuraman Day Trippin’

0060_NIKON D300__DSC0596 (by SoulJah)

Man, Kuraman is like the Venus sculpture. It’s beautiful overall, but looking at it closely reveals imperfections. I’d go back if not for the one hour long ride on a small boat. My whole body was sore from the boat ride, and I think I swallowed too much sea water that I’m still nursing my sore throat.

Humbling

NIKON D300_0129__DSC4268
Out in the distance I saw this old lady walking carefully, bare feet, on the slippery pathways of Kg. Ayer, walking along oblivious to my presence with her face hidden in her relatively huge umbrella. This small, old lady was heading to a Surau or Prayer Hall which I just passed a couple of metres behind me. We were about to reach an intersection at which point, 3 young lads were just coming home from a futsal game. She immediately stopped, which I thought was peculiar.

Turns out she was letting the three young lads pass beside her. I figured I didn’t wanna keep her waiting there, so I immediately stepped aside to the intersection where the kids came from to let her through.

At that point, it was kind of humbling to see this little old, frail lady was performing her duty as a Muslim, and even made the effort to go for prayers at the Surau in the rain. I snapped a couple of pictures of that moment, to remind me of her.

Before setting off, I eyed her, just to make sure she reaches the sheltered pathway to the surau, so as to get her feet out of the slippery area.

Man she reminds me of my grandma way too much.

I’m Shooting in the Rain~ Shooting in the Rain~

Getting ready for Maghrib Prayers
Maybe I should start shooting in the rain more. I love the reflection off of the wooden pathways. Afterall, what’s the use of a weather sealed body if you ain’t gonna use it in the rain?
More here.

A Wink?

She was quite popular with the kids that day.

Face painting was also quite popular, with a constant stream of kids and adults coming in and out.

Human Foosball was also another attraction. This kid is way too cute to know what the hell’s going on.

Cute kid.
0023_DSC_0056
Even though it’s human foosball, the celebrations on a goal was almost like any other football game.
0024_DSC_0059
She was enthusiastic, and keep on going for the ball the whole game.

A little break in the action as the rain sets in.

Everyone was taking shelter.
0048_DSC_0123
Glad that I did. Found another model.
0050_DSC_0131
Well, it’s not hard to get anyone to pose really.
0052_DSC_0137
But I rather like candids like this.
0070_DSC_0173
Well, unless they have a cute smile.
0079_DSC_0188
‘They see me rollin’, my stroller… Tryna catch me riding dirty…’
0083_DSC_0198
‘Nobody knows it, but you’ve got a secret smile, and you use it, only for me…’
0097_DSC_0215
A whole lot of models waitin’ in line. A great turn out by the bikers, taking the kids on a ride around Bandar.

The only time I wished I was still 10.

It’s hard to be inconspicuous with a huge lens.

Riding off.

I thought this would be the last picture of the day. I went off for lunch shortly after this, but when I saw the Stormtroopers roaming around the place, I went back to my parking space, and paid for another hour of parking just to catch em.

It turns out, that this was in fact, the guy who went to the 501st Legion march during Macy’s parade last year in New York. I was utterly and totally, geeked out at that moment.

The bikers having a go at the obstacle course.
0132_DSC_0069
They were really gunnin’ for it.
0141_DSC_0081
And everyone was laughing all the way to the end, with their friends cheering them on.
0147_DSC_0088
There weren’t any paddings at the other end of this drop.
