Hueisean At Chew Jetty – Well, as you know I went to Chew Jetty few weeks back and I brought my dearest, Hueisean along because she'd never been there before. I've got my Canon 60D, and the Sigma 30mm f1.4 with me, so I started taking photos of her. Here are some shots of her, still learning and brushing up my skill. C&C are very welcome.

I need to learn more on editing skill. My post-process skill really lousy because I don't really know how to adjust the color and stuff. Haha. I prefer original shot, or perhaps using film camera so there's no need of post-process. =D

#1. The Chew Jetty Kongsi.

A Walk At Chew Jetty – Few weeks back, I went to the Chew Jetty with dearest, Hueisean. I like the place, I have been there for quite a few times and it just doesn't feel bored every time I visit it because the little fishing village-like houses give a sense of peacefulness, a sense of calmness, it's so near to town, yet it's just relaxing, maybe because its location of by the sea.

Chew Jetty or also known as Clan Jetty is a famous tourist spot in Penang, in the heart of the George Town Unesco World Heritage Site. Clan Jetty is located at Weld Quay, it consist of 8 jetties which are named after the surnames of the Chinese. Why people like to call Chew Jetty more is because it has the most number of "Chew" family living at there. The jetty is actually the villages of the Chinese immigrant when the first came to Penang in the 18th century.

It'd now become a tourist spot, and also photographer's favourite spot for photoshooting. Well, it's not a surprise that there's still people living at there, and some still goes out fishing by their private boat.

#11. Saw some kids fishing at the jetty.


#12. So we went to check it out.


#13.His name is Jason and his fishing string got stuck at the boat and we went to help. HAHA.

#15. Took a photo of Hueisean together with Jason. She said she didn't hold a fishing rod before, so she went to borrow from Jason. Haha.

The weather was pretty good that day, although it was sunny but occasionally sea breeze blew over my face which makes touring the place and taking photos nice.


#16.

It was a quiet afternoon, there's not much people around in their home. There's some other visitors like us too.


#17.
Peace.

I feel the place is full of culture. One very cool thing is that different jetties has different house layout. It's because that different clan from China last time has their very own clan living culture.

The Chew Jetty is very happening and crowded during the Thni Kong Festival during Chinese New Year, as well as the Nine Emperor Gods Festival. You will not want to miss out this place if you happen to be in Penang, during or not during the two festivals.

Although the wind blew once in a while, it's still feels hot once in a while, just when my perspiration started to break out of my pores, we started leaving Chew Jetty.


27th Year Of My Spinal Cord Injury

Posted: 14 Oct 2011 09:43 AM PDT

When I sustained spinal cord injury 27 years ago today, I had to learn anew everything about my body again. My limbs could no longer move they way they used to. My bladder had to be emptied with the aid of catheters. I needed suppositories to move my bowels. Even my diaphragm function was impaired which affecting my breathing.

It has not been easy for me all these years, moreso when the world is not built for people with impairments like mine. Moving around in a wheelchair is like traversing an obstacles course even in the most part of modern Kuala Lumpur. I would love to be more active but the inconvenience of overcoming these barriers wears me down quickly most of the time.

So after 27 years, my body is worn out before its time from over-exertion and over-compensation for reduced muscular functions and in pushing the wheelchair. My fingers are bent. My wrists, shoulders and right knee aches. My kidneys are failing from urinary tract infections and vesicouretal refluxes. In essence, I am living in a body much older than my age.

But all is not that bad. I got to befriend some interesting people and see the world from a different perspective. I learnt to accept the limitations of my impairments and made the best of whatever was thrown at me. Most importantly, being a disabled person, I am conscientized by the issues faced by my peers. This led me to do what I am doing today – promoting disability equality – so that disabled people are accorded the rights we deserve in society.

Someone wise said fate chooses our relative, we choose our friends. I beg to differ. It is fate that chose my friends for me too whom I otherwise would not have the honour to be acquainted with had my life took a different turn. Here's a toast to friends who have made my 27-year journey with spinal cord injury more meaningful. Thank you for making it less arduous than it could have been. Thank you for being there for me one time or another. I could not have asked for more.

The See-Food, Reach-Food Diet

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:08 AM PDT

You've heard of the "See-Food" diet haven't you? No, that's not the diet where you load up on fish, lobster, crab and mussels. The See-Food Diet is the one that so many of us crack jokes about – it's the diet where you eat everything in sight! But don't laugh too hard. Scientists at Cornell University and other research institutions have proven that you actually WILL eat more food if you


Rest, Sleep, And Burn More Fat Fast

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:07 AM PDT

In order to reap the benefits from the intense exercise I recommend to my Fat Burning Furnace students, you must get adequate rest.  I can't stress this fact enough.  In fact, rest is just as important, if not more important that the actual exercise.  During the high intensity resistance exercise that my students perform, the muscles experience tiny injuries or tears.  The body's response

Orthorexia and the New Rules of Clean Eating (Part 1)

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:06 AM PDT

Clean eating has no official definition, but it's usually described as avoiding processed foods, chemicals, preservatives and artificial ingredients. Instead, clean eaters choose natural foods, the way they came out of the ground or as close to their natural form as possible. Vegetables, fruits, legumes, 100% whole grains, egg whites, fish, and chicken breast are clean eating staples.


Orthorexia and the New Rules of Clean Eating (Part 2)

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:05 AM PDT

In part one, I described the growing obsession many people have with eating only the purest, healthiest foods, aka "clean eating." You'd think that nothing but good would come from that, but some experts today dislike the concept of clean foods because it implies a dichotomy where other foods, by default, are "dirty" or forbidden - as in, you can never, ever eat them again (imagine life


Nutrition Label Lies & Loopholes: Serving Size Sleight of Hand

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:04 AM PDT

For years, concerned consumers and watchdog organizations have been screaming that the U.S. labeling laws are full of loopholes and in need of serious revision. After years of talk, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says they're planning to so something about it. But will it be enough? There are many food labeling issues we could complain about, but one of the biggest problems (due to


Night Time Eating And Fat Loss

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:04 AM PDT

"Eat breakfast like a king, eat lunch like a prince and eat dinner like a pauper." This maxim can be attributed to nutrition writer Adelle Davis, and since her passing in 1974, the advice to eat less at night to help with fat loss has lived on and continued to circulate in many different incarnations. This includes suggestions such as: "Don't eat a lot before bedtime" "Don't eat midnight


Is Your Fat Burning Exercise Routine Keeping You Fat And Unhealthy?

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:03 AM PDT

The majority of exercisers today still rely on long duration moderate paced aerobic exercise as their primary routine to burn fat fast.  But recent studies have shown that this is a big, I mean big mistake.  In fact, you could say that the whole aerobics explosion of a few decades past was one of the biggest mistakes in the health and fitness industry.  Why? There are several reasons,


Irvingia Gabonensis Supplement Craze: In-Credible Weight Loss from an African Tree?

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:02 AM PDT

Irvingia gabonensis is the latest weight loss supplement to hit the marketplace, saturate the internet with advertisements, ignite forum discussions and flood my email inbox with questions. In the weight loss marketplace, this may gain the dubious distinction of becoming the next hoodia or acai berry (scam), but I'll just present the facts, make my case and then let you judge for


Induction Destruction: The Perils Of Diving Into Strict Diets Headfirst

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 09:02 AM PDT

Every so often you read a sad story in the newspaper about someone who dove headfirst into a river or lake, without checking to see how deep the water was beforehand. Unfortunately, it turned out to be a shallow 18 inches and the consequence of this miscalculated plunge was a broken neck and a wheelchair. This reminds me of the way most people impatiently dive into strict, extreme, or

Ever since the independent film, Super Size Me was released, research on the relationship between increasing obesity and increasing portion sizes has skyrocketed and the results have been virtually unanimous.

If you've caused metabolic damage as a result of following starvation diets or losing weight too rapidly in the past, it can be extremely difficult to achieve any further fat loss at all.

[Video] The 99: Komik Adiwira Islam Berperwatakan Terpuji

Posted: 15 Oct 2011 11:03 AM PDT

Kuwait City - Jabbar adalah remaja dari Arab Saudi dikurniakan kekuatan luar biasa. Jami, si genius dari Eropah mempunyai kepakaran untuk mencipta alat serta senjata dan Sami pula dianugerahi deria pendengaran yang melangkaui kebolehan manusia biasa.

Mereka adalah antara watak adiwira di dalam komik The 99, iaitu kumpulan remaja Islam dari seluruh dunia yang memerangi kejahatan.

Idea penghasilan komik itu dicetuskan ahli psikologi Kuwait, Naif Al-Mutawa yang mahu The 99 menjadi watak contoh dan memberi pengaruh positif kepada kanak-kanak Islam.

Tidak seperti adiwira di negara Barat yang melawan musuh dengan pakaian menyolok mata, watak komik ini, terutama wanita, mengenakan kostum sesuai dengan budaya Timur Tengah.

Namun, komik unik ini berhadapan pelbagai cabaran awal termasuk larangan pemasarannya di Arab Saudi. Tetapi semua halangan itu berjaya diharungi dan kini, The 99 dipasarkan di Timur Tengah, India, Indonesia dan Amerika Syarikat (AS).

Malah, komik ini juga mungkin dijadikan siri animasi televisyen selepas sebuah syarikat penerbitan Belanda dilihat berminat dengan karya Naif itu.

Dan jangan terkejut kerana "The 99" turut mendapat perhatian Rumah Putih semasa Sidang Keusahawanan, April tahun lalu, apabila Presiden AS, Barack Obama memuji usaha Naif kerana mencipta watak adiwira yang menunjukkan sikap terpuji.

If you don't know how to properly judge your fat loss or fat burning progress from a particular exercise or nutrition regimen, you're probably not going to be very successful.  It's just like in sports…you have to know the score if you want to know who wins the game.  So in our fat loss and fitness efforts, we have to know our body's score if we want to know if we're winning, or in this


How To Go From Calorie Clueless To Calorie Competent

Why is it that any time you hear the words "calorie counting" or "food journaling", people start running for the hills? If creating menus, counting calories and keeping a food journal are research-proven, effective tools for nutrition awareness, education, motivation and accountability (they are), then why is there so much resistance to it? One reason is because it's perceived as work and
