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.

Another Street Scene......

jalanan

The fun thing about taking picture on the street is that we can still apply the same ideas,concepts and theme to highlight issue in everyday life.The moving cars,motorbike.shoppers & street vendors.

newspaper

My aim was actually to capture the busy scenario of India street pedestrian mall which is a well known tourist spot in Kuching.As I was setting up for the shot I saw this newspaper street vendor and had to capture him quickly before being notice or else.......

Photo Documentary-Town Development..

PC123280

Photo snap on 12/12/2009

The last Malay Kampung(village) in Sibu Town...as seen from the Sibu waterfront .

As for this ruins like local kampung houses, whether its last occupants are refusing to leave or waiting "patiently" for its last day to come, I really don't know. But I was just stunned by the scene - its 'human life' has amazingly outlasted its both economic and physical life...

Street Photo Documentary-Homeless or Street Beggar.

PC133322

PC133371 PC133332

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.
