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.

Jalan TAR & Jalan Masjid India-Kuala Lumpur.

P7287512 

If we talk about hunting for carpet,textile,fabrics and hijab(tundung in Malay),I always talk about this street of Jalan TAR(Tuanku Abdul Rahman).In fact ,Tuanku Abdul Rahman is the name of the first Yang di-Pertua Agong(His Highness or King) of Malaysia.However there is another area near little India(or Jalan Masjid India) that you can find many textile store and fabric outlets.

P7287524 P7247370

Normally this place will be crowded when festive season are around "Hari Raya".We can see many new street vendors.For women Jalan TAR & Jalan Masjid India is a place to seek matching hijab(Tudung in Malay) and spending the whole day checking & hunting every store for the perfect colours.

P7247366  P7247388

 

On saturday and as expected the crowd begin for a night market(Pasar Malam) hunting and bargaining for their goods from the street vendors.

 P7287539P7287525

 

Beside many textile,clothing,carpet and fabric store I also notice there are many budget hotel around Jalan TAR and Jalan Masjid India.Most budget hotel around this district offer very competitive discount & more discount if we book online.

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.......

Walking Down Memory Lane in Sibu.

This building used to be a cinema before I left Sibu 25 years ago.To-day its a shop.

P5306478

So long ago we didn't have any money to go to the movie,so we did try to see the movie free.This is where the Lido cinema in Sibu and its the Hotel now.I still remember sneaking into the cinema for free movie.

P5306479

The old Rex Cinema.

Yeah...I miss the old cinema those day 0.50 cents for a movie for front row seat.

P5306480

Cathay Cinema .Now its Star Cineplex.

Life during school days are full of mischievous fun....Skip class and go to the cinema in school uniform to watch Hindi movie.Those were the days of 60's & 70's.

P9202107 Mall

I like taking picture of people talking on phones.Many years ago we did not carry our phone with us where ever we go,now that most everyone carries phone with them.I won't hesitate to snap a picture of someone making an expression while talking on their phone.
