Golden Sands Of Desaru

Golden Sands Of Desaru

I first went to Desaru on a leisurely, unplanned roadtrip, maybe 20 years ago, with Ken Chia and a bunch of other friends. We went via Kota Tinggi waterfall and I remember Desaru as very deserted. Desolation is a rare charm nowadays, though.

It is still relatively quiet and lonely. I like it this time on this second trip with Sharon. It was quite idyllic and beautiful. Desaru is near the southern tip of the peninsular facing the former South China Sea.

The Dog And The Sea

The Dog And The Sea

They always have a stray dog population that is out of control. Whether it is Pulau Ketam or Sungai Besar or here in Pantai Redang in Sekinchan.

Fishermen feed stray dogs with raw fish when the boats come in. The wharf area attracts so many mangy dogs. It is heartbreaking to see them. They are silent victims.

Then And Now - Looking Thru The Time Tunnel.

The Sekinchan Nine Emperor Gods Temple is a good place to juxtapose or frame the vast paddy fields. It sits in the middle of he farm land. The ornamental windows on the perimeter wall fence provided a flash back to 2012. I captured the green paddy fields behind one of the windows back in 2012. Now in 2017, during the monsoon season, the fields are submerged in a sea of flood waters.

Memories Of Sweet Sekinchan

On the top of the montage is a picture I think I took in the summer of 2012. Green green grass, sunshine, blue sky and fluffy clouds. On the bottom is the shocking view from yesterday after monsoonal rain. The beleaguered tree has what looked like pomelo fruits growing out of it.

Flooded Sekinchan

Flooded Sekinchan

Prolonged rainfall last night turned the flooded rice fields into a landscape resembling that of a sea. I asked a farmer if the planted paddy crop will be affected. He thinks not as lowland paddy can survive waterlogged conditions.

The distant building is a ,"bird hotel". Farmers and land owners supplement their income by harvesting the nests of swifts.

The Shadow Of Your Smile

The Shadow Of Your Smile

On that sunny day, I thought I saw the shadow of a giant Christmas tree appearing on the wall of the Selangor Dredging building. It was the shadow of one of the adjacent Twin Towers. The smiling sun put up her own Christmas decor, albeit for a brief moment.

Lee Jetty Sunrise

Lee Jetty Sunrise

She saw the sunrise rising in Penang and chased after it, ending up at Lee Jetty at around 7:15 am. The takeaway is scenic or beautiful scenes can be found at your own backyard, if you care to see it. You don't need to go to Mauritius :-)

Important to note that she kept the horizon or sea level. A slanting sea from careless framing can ruin a nice seaside shot.

The Day I Met Mutt Rempit

The Day I Met Mutt Rempit

Me And You And A Dog Named Boo (Mutt Rempit).

Went to Sekinchan today to test Sony's new HDR Sky Camera App. At the paddy fields, I met a farmer raking his field, accompanied by his pet dog.

Asked him where he stays and he told me it is quite far. Naturally, I asked how the dog travels. He showed me.

The dog balances himself quite well on the back of the motorcycle, even when going around corners. Occasionally, the un-neutered dog jumps off when he sees a female.

Quite an amazing sight and Winter Solstice must be my lucky day.
