Cock Fighting

Those who received the greeting card featuring the rooster may be interested to know the circumstances or backstory. I was outside a kampung house in Ulu Slim, near the famous hot springs. I was enthralled by the sight of two cockerels play fighting almost non stop. Waited for the brief moment they took a break and captured the solitary pose of the rooster on right. Organised cock fighting is illegal in Malaysia.

Sony A7R, ISO 800, f4, 1/1600 sec.

Happy Chinese New Year 2017

Photographed this rooster in a remote village near the Ulu Slim Hot Springs last year. I was watching it with trepidation as it was play fighting violently with another young rooster. Cock fighting is a young rooster's obsession, it seemed.

A Personal Greeting

A Personal Greeting

In an age of impersonal recycling of gifs and video messages.

Think of this as a handmade, homemade or hand-crafted or personalised card from me that included my photography and design...

My friend Teh Lian Chye has a theory:

"During the days of yore, when greeting cards took days, and go through multiple processes to arrive at their destinations, that by the time the cards arrived it's already new year.

Therefore we used to greet people with 'Merry Christmas & Happy New Year'. We saved time and effort - two holidays in one sentence. Done"
