Need Your Support

Since my hospitalization last year, I have been trying to develop a new revenue stream to be financially independent. Getting revenue from usual source is a struggle and that was why you saw me pleading for help for me and my cats. Many kind and generous people did help and I appreciate it greatly.

Many photography related websites rely on an affiliate partnership with an online camera store located in the US. It will be tough as our currency’s value is diminishing and the shipping costs from the US are astronomical.

I thought about it and think a hotel and accommodation booking partnership may be better.

Everyone seems to travel nowadays. I recently signed up as an affiliate partner with Agoda since I have so much travel and geographical related content on the web. If you travel, be it for business or leisure. you will usually need to book a hotel in advance. I know many of you travel regularly both for business and leisure.

Be it a weekend trip to Penang, a trip to Nepal or Japan or even a trip to London or Paris. Last I checked. Agoda has over 500,525 hotels that are located in every corner of the world.

I have used them myself when I traveled preciously. It is reliable, is competitively priced and used by millions.

No matter where you are going, why not help me out at the same time by booking through the Agoda links at my page.

No obligations and I will get a small commission and it won’t affect your rate. You probably might get a cheaper price because of ongoing promotions. I won’t know who booked what and where. I won’t have my commission registered until you checked out. It will be nice if you let me know you did but it is completely optional and all up to you.

Thank you for your support and for helping out. Bookmark or save the link or this post or if you lose the link, please PM me to ask.

If you forget the url you can go to and find the link on the sidebar of any page there. You can book from anywhere in the world to anywhere, as long as you have a valid credit or debit card.

It is my first time trying out such a venture and may not have the answers to all your questions. Feel free to ask me and I will direct your questions to Agoda if necessary.

I am still learning the ropes and will improve its implementation where possible.

Wish me luck and thank you for your support. I am kicking off this announcement with a suggestion to book Avani Goldcoast Sepang since I was featuring the gold coast in recent days.

Here is also a dedicated page where you can book or see the location of Avani Sepang Goldcoast Resort. Didn’t realise it looks so beautiful on a map too:

Twilight Ambush

Found one of my images of Bagan Lallang beach frrom 2013. Maybe it was my overactive imagination and I spooked myself. Standing there at twilight, it looked like the lalang (weed grass) were creeping up silently and surrounding the unsuspecting family, before strangling them on the white sands.

Bagan Lallang Beach

My first trip to Bagan Lallang, was as a young man in the 1980s, courtesy of Texas Instruments Malaysia of Ulu Klang. I went there to shoot some pics and videos of their Family Day and they brought a few thousand employees and family members there. The beach was virtually unknown then and was very deserted on a normal day and was nicely undeveloped. Even finding the remote and secluded beach was a problem as there were no GPS or Waze then. My fondest memory was walking in low tide and climbing up on a skeletal boat wreck not far from shore. Today the wreck is gone and there is the beautiful and luxurious Avani Gold Coast Resort. dotting the coast. Seen here in the background, its beautiful palm frown shaped design protrudes into the ocean. It is best seen as an aerial view. The beach is still serene and deserted on a weekday. Love the neat rows of casuarina trees on the sand. There used to be plenty of lalang (weed or cogon grass) on the sand, true to its name. The foreground old exposed brick wall or rustic pillar, iron fence and creeper plants were created by a filter in Smart Photo Editor. The software has a suite of thousands of bizarre and weird effects and filters which you think you will never use and will scoff at. Depending on the picture, if it works, it works amazingly well. The resulting picture reminds of the time I was having a drink by the beach side at the covered concourse or foyer of another faraway seaside resort. It was the Spanish inspired design of the Awana Porto Malai (now Resorts World Langkawi) in Langkawi island. Anyone remembers or knows the enterprising event organizer Vincent Joseph from T.I.? Would like to get in touch with him. #baganlallang #beach #goldcoast #selangor #seaside #awanisepang #texasinstruments #nature #travel #smartphotoeditor

The Old Jetty In Tanjung Sepat, 10 Years Ago

Love the power of social media networking. My long time Instagram follower @jaschintaz sent me an old pic of her wedding day at the old jetty in Tanjung Sepat, 10 years ago! What a sweet couple, weren’t they? Her husband CS is a native of the town. If you remember, I mentioned that the old jetty collapsed. See how charming the old jetty was albeit being quite rickety then. Thanks Jas for sharing. Now my story about the new and old jetties is complete. See my earlier post about the new jetty titled “Time And Tide Wait For No Man Or Woman”.

Who Are These People?

You scroll through your timeline or newsfeed occasionally. You liked some pictures or posts because they appear interesting. Also because you know how difficult an effort it was to put up some of the posts. Also you want to give some support and encouragement to decent people.

I am not talking about liking a trivial post or some mental diarrhea transformed into a post. You do it NOT BECAUSE they are your friends but because you know social media is about being RECIPROCAL and SOCIABLE. You REMEMBER some liked your posts and it is only FAIR and LOGICAL you return the gesture even though it is an unwritten rule. It may not be compulsory or obligatory but it is basic and decent human value about receiving and giving. Sad to say; many fuckers are NOT EVEN HUMANS.

Social media is not a VACUUM. It is about reactions, be it likes, sharing and commenting. Even pokes. To those who regularly do, I thank you.

But there a few useless assholes or social media LEPERS around. Throw a like and you’ll hit one.You liked their posts every time or for the UMPTEENTH time but they never like any of your posts BACK.

Who are these arrogant mofos who expect ONE WAY LOVE, all the time? They DON’T BELONG in social media and only make things regressive. I don’t have the time but I should avoid them, unfriend or unfollow the zombies. These are selfish people who expect to receive all the time and not give. You probably see them hanging around a Christmas tree and not give any presents to their loved ones.

You know who you are, mofos and I will be unfollowing or unfriending you soon. I don’t want people with RIGOR MORTIS or UNRESPONSIVE people on my list. At least, you know the reason I kicked you out, if you read it here later.

I assume these people are DEAD and don’t check their posts. But nope. There’ll be a GRATUITOUS selfie posted very hour to show they are still BREATHING. I’m not even talking about arrogant celebs or women who flaunt their BIG TITS in profile pics and daily pics all the time.

These women don’t give a fuck about you because they know they will get grateful likes from DUMDFUCK guys who will turn into soft silicon upon seeing big tits in bikinis. lingerie, belly buttons, butt cracks, cleavage or big tits half hanging out like rotting cempedak. These are the same LAME slave guys who write grammar-challenged posts into her timeline to express: “Thanks for accepts”. WTF?

Was trying to find some T&A pics to illustrate this post and realised I have a big collection from the now defunct Japan GT races in Sepang.
