OKU (Orang Kurang Upaya) or Disabled Person in Malaysia.

It’s getting harder and harder to be a disabled person in Malaysia these days when employers don’t want to hire you because you are handicapped or you just can’t get out of the house because of the lack of public transport and accessibility.But not to Awang (Picture below),he is a registered disabled person in Malaysia.He registered him self at Jabatan Kebajikan (ministry of welfare) and was given a OKU card.

This afternoon I bought a few packets of dried sweet fish crackers from Awang  and when he saw with camera he ask me to photograph him.He also talk to me and say I cannot see any reason why my disability cannot do business here and I'm not a beggar .He ask me to speak to the local authority (City Council) not to chase him away for doing business at footway.

Squatters Colony.

I have meet many people who come from a lower income background and their stories all share a common theme that they wanted to live a better life.Many former soldiers,policemen or commonly known as former servicemen are landless and living as squatters and surviving on low pensions.

Street Photo Documentary-Homeless or Street Beggar.

I really hesitated about publishing this one.I took a photo of this homeless or street beggar while doing my street documentary photo shoot.When I walked away I started thinking about the purpose of taking such a photo.Of course one could argue that a picture of the sad sides of our world is a good thing since it highlight the fact that not all people are as fortunate to have home or someone caring for them.
