Our Own Kokomo In Desaru

Aruba, Jamaica, ooh I want to take ya
Bermuda, Bahama, come on pretty mama
Key Largo, Montego, baby why don't we go, Jamaica

Off the Florida Keys, there's a place called Kokomo
That's where you want to go to get away from it all
Bodies in the sand, tropical drink melting in your hand
We'll be falling in love to the rhythm of a steel drum band
Down in Kokomo

Tiny Chewbacca Flowers - Macro

Trampled by humans and decimated by grass cutters, the plants survive somehow.

Each pod is smaller than a finger nail and a closer look reveals its understated and strange beauty.

Sony Alpha a7R, ISO 1600, f4, 1/1250 sec.

Macro At The Night Market - Putu Mayam

Night Macro: Putu Mayam at the Pasar Malam

Outdoor macro is hard enough in the daytime with a close-up lens' extreme shallow depth-of-field. It requires very precise focus. At night, at the pasar malam, it can be a nightmare.

I not only need to light the subject but also to handle the side effect of a curious crowd attracted to the lights like moths to a flame.

Is a challenge but doable if you can find a stall with tables. The 'assam laksa' stall usually has some tables and chairs to dine in. They won't mind you shooting other food there provided you order from them, and explain what you are going to do.

Rendang Curry Chicken

Historically, the Minangkabau people of Sumatra were of a migrating (merantau) culture. Many left home to start new lives in other Indonesian cities, as well as at regional countries. Soon, Padang restaurants were everywhere.

But there was one problem when they wanted to take food along their long journeys through rivers and oceans. Refrigerators weren't available in the 16th century.
