To The Peak Of Fraser’s Hill

photo by Mr. Azizul edited by Kairul Abas

I want to take three months off to the place that I can rest and clear all the burden in my mind, but that is just in my imagination. But for sure last week a memorable 3 days journey to Fraser’s Hill with my partner in crime, Mr. Hamdan and rest of the IKIP 5 team Mr. Jai, Mr. Azizul and Mr. Amir. What is changing in your life right now? For me, my passion in photography give me something to enjoyed at least for a couple of days. In this program ( organized by Omar Dani and BBA student ) we have a good 3 days of adventure(but I skip some activities.....hehehe) and my main objective is street/candid photography. What’s about a street/candid photography? For me, I’m capturing real moment in a real time of human behaviour. I spend a lot of time observing people around me just to generate my creativity and to enhance new ideas. I remember that I’ve been warning just because I’m shooting someone’s couple and that was just some of my memories back then. Okay we go back to my journey, Fraser’s Hill is a good place to clear up your mind and eyes. The green scenery and birds flying around you (and almost 1 ft. toad) that just give you a sense of harmony even though there are very limited activities such as horse riding, archery, jungle trekking and bird watching. What can you get for 3D2N in Fraser’s Hill? A sweet memories that are priceless.
