He was standing on a raised platform at Medan Selera Kampar, gazing for quite some time at the steps in front of him. I was behind him, and when I asked if I could hold his arm and help him down, he looked up and smiled tenderly and said, “takpa, takpa” (it’s ok, it’s ok). As I was about to move away, he looked at me again with the same tenderness and said, “thank you, thank you” though I didn’t really do anything for him to deserve it. I saw him much later on the road, inching his way to where he was headed. When life throws harrowing challenges at us, I wonder how many of us will be as accepting as he is, and still find it in our hearts to remember to smile and say thank you to those who come our way. This small-sized uncle came across as a very ‘tall’ person to me today. #kampar#perak#pasarawamkampar#visualstorytelling#humanphotography#malaysia#facesofmalaysia#malaysianchinese#seniorcitizensmalaysia#physicallychallenged
This is a common sight at food stalls in Kampar. There’s always an orderly, calm and good-natured wait for one’s turn. Not sure if it’s a requirement imposed by the vendor in this case, but there is a nasi lemak stall in Bandar Baru Kampar run by two young sisters (occasionally assisted by their mother) that has a clear signage requiring customers to queue. Once the mother was manning the stall and I heard the guy ahead of me ordering 10 packs of nasi lemak. I only wanted to buy two pieces of kuih and so I asked the man if I could jump the queue and he was fine with it. But the kakak told me that I was lucky the daughter wasn’t there that day because she (the daughter) would have ignored my request regardless of how logical it sounded and would have proceeded to prepare the 20 packs first before even looking at me. “Dia ikut law”, the kakak (sister) said 😁. Truth be told, the daughter (whom I have met on other occasions) does intimidate this rarely-intimidated Indra. Righteous people always have that effect on me. 😁 . #kampar#perak#pasarawamkampar#visualstorytelling#humanphotography#malaysia#facesofmalaysia#malaysianstreetfood
I was overcome with shame when I saw him effortlessly cycle past me last week; realising how I would have huffed and puffed if I had to cycle for even 5 minutes. Look at the bags of groceries hanging from the handlebar. Complete with an umbrella at that! Doesn’t he look enviably fit for his age? And here we are complaining about weight gain, aching bodies, aging; thinking that we must spend hundreds or thousands of ringgit on gym memberships or fancy fitness equipment to stay fit and healthy. People in Kampar don’t need gyms to stay trim. And I am pretty sure they don’t need fitness apps either to remind them to be always on the move. Moving is what they naturally do on a daily basis. And when they move, unlike us urbanites, they work at it; not get their cars to work for them. Little wonder, then, that there is absolutely no traffic congestion here in Kampar. Perhaps it’s time to brush up on my cycling and get myself a bicycle so that I can start preparing to age gracefully like this uncle ☺️. #kampar#perak#pasarawamkampar#visualstorytelling#humanphotography#malaysia#facesofmalaysia#malaysianindian#seniorcitizensmalaysia#cyclingforhealth

You could say this is my first commissioned piece 😊. This is Gopi. I was first drawn to the little altar he had at the corner of his stall. Thought it looked adorable and perfectly reflected the domestication of religion that is common among some Hindus. Gopi was a little distant when I first met him, looked worried and answered my questions only in monosyllables. I took some photographs, bought some snake-gourds, alleviated his doubts about my motive and left. A week later, I passed by his stall again and this time around, a much more animated Gopi greeted me with a warm welcome; told me he had seen and liked my earlier posts and asked if I could do a piece on him. I could only smile for I generally only wrote based on my instinctive urge; never upon request. But I couldn’t say no to him. I had, during my first visit, noticed that he was doing all his work using his left arm alone. I asked him about it and he said his right arm was paralysed in an accident. He had apparently only started this business here a month earlier. His stall is a little hidden from the busiest parts of the market; which makes it a little less conspicuous to marketgoers. I am not sure how this post will help Gopi. I know nothing about his past to vouch for him in any way. But I see the present effort he is making as one step forward to a much better future. I am duty-bound to honour the requests of those I photograph. In Gopi’s case, I am merely playing a small role to make him visible; as he wishes to be. #kampar#perak#pasarawamkampar#youngmalaysians#humanphotography#visualstorytelling#malaysianstories#malaysianindians
Ikhwan Syafiq: [SENANG AJE NAK KULIT BERSIH!] Semua orang nak kulit bersih, betul tak? Tapi tu lah, ada yang duk fikir susah nak jaga kulit bersih ni. Sebenarnya, senang aja sis oi. Tak percaya? 😲 Biasanya pemakanan yang betul boleh jadi faktor untuk kulit bersih. Antara makanan yang bagus untuk bersihkan kulit kita: 1. Oat Oat mempunyai sifat antioksida & anti-radang yang banyak ada dalam produk dermatologi tau. 2. Broccoli Bukan takat rendah kalori aje, siap ada Vitamin A,C, B kompleks, K dan E tau. Tak payah telan macam-macam vitamin dah. 😛 3. Carrot Carrot terkandung vitamin serta asid folat untuk menjadikan kulit bersinar & menghaluskan kulit dengan lebih baik. 4. Chia seed Asid lemak dalam Omega-3 membantu tekstur kulit dengan melindunginya & memberi kelembapan pada kulit. 5. Leafy greens Sayur-sayuran hijau pun ada vitamin tau, so vitamin tu nanti akan bantu bersihkan kulit kita secara semula jadi. 6. Almond Kacang almond kaya dengan vitamin E yang lindungi kulit kita dari rosak sebab cahaya matahari. 7. Pumpkin Uiks? Buah labu pun boleh bersihkan kulit? Yes guys, sebab dalam labu sendiri ada Vitamin A untuk pulihkan kerosakan kulit. Tapi zaman sekarang, ade aje antara korang yang jenis tak makan buah dan sayur kan? Maklumleee busy. Haa, korang consume aje #dianzvitamin sebab #dianzvitamin pun mampu membantu korang jaga kebersihan kulit dengan lebih efektif. Giteeuuwww! 😘
