Travel by Train | Tumpat,Kelantan

Posted in Photojournalism, TraveLog by aliffafiq on 05/05/2011

Sudah lama sebenarnya saya teringin hendak mengembara satu tempat ke satu tempat menggunakan keretapi. Mengembara menggunakan keretapi ini tidak seperti memandu di petak paling kanan skali di highway,menekan pedal sekuat hati atau sebaliknya. Ia lebih kepada ‘laidback’ kata orang putih. Pemandangan yg bakal di sajikan nanti sudah tentu sangat menarik dan pelbagai. Setelah di ajak oleh rakan dan juga bekas lecturer saya iaitu En.Radzi Hanif, di temani pula oleh rakan kongsi ,Uncle Amy, kami menghala ke Tumpat, Kelantan. Ini merupakan pengalaman pertama menaiki keretapi ke negeri pantai timur yg mengambil masa selama 13 jam (atau lebih).

Trip ini boleh dikategorikan sebagai ‘ kerja gila ‘ kerana kami hanya melelapkan mata di dlm train shj, tiada hotel,berjalan-jalan sekitar Kota Bahru & Tumpat dan terus balik ke Kuala Lumpur. Penat memanglah penat tetapi ia sesuatu yg patut di cuba jika anda gemarkan aktiviti mengembara seperti ini.Selepas ini teringin hendak menjelajah South East Asia menggunakan jenis pengangkutan yg sama. Sudah berada di dlm kepala, tinggal tunggu masa untuk merealisasikanya sahaja,insyAllah.

PhotoJournalism | Thaipusam 2011

Posted in Photojournalism by aliffafiq on 04/19/2011

Thaipusam is a Hindu festival celebrated mostly by the Tamil community on the full moon in the Tamil month of Thai (January/February). The word Thaipusam is derived from the month name Thai and Pusam, which refers to a star that is at its highest point during the festival ( Source : Wikipedia). This was my third year shooting Thaipusam at Batu Caves, Malaysia. (6 photos total)

I know it’s kinda late to post this images, but i just don’t feel like posting it at that particular month for no reason. Currently I’m very busy with work. I hope this post will cheer up you guys. Stay tuned as i’ll be back on May. Thanks :)

PhotoJournalism | ‘Jual Murah’ Series

Posted in Photojournalism, TraveLog by aliffafiq on 01/19/2011

Cameron Highlands is one of Malaysia’s most extensive hill stations. It covers an area of 712 square kilometres. To the north, its boundary touches that of Kelantan; to the west, it shares part of its border with Perak. During the day, the temperature seldom soars above 25°C; at night, it is the opposite: the temperature can sometimes drop to as low as 12°C ( Source:Wikipedia). Happening at the peak, I got the chance to talk and photograph a humble farmer named, Mr.P. Lachumannan. (11 photos total)


Mr.P. Lachumannan giving me a special pose with his farm as a background.


Located at one of the corners at Cameron Highlands, customers always stop by to buy fresh vegetables from his stall. Lachumannan packing goods for his customer.


Dog being chased away by the worker as  it tried to sneak into the farm.


All of his cabbages have been picked for selling. Soon he will plant new seeds, which will take 3 months to grow full cabbage.


Lachumannan uses animal-based fertilizer for his vegetables. Left overs being dumped into a basket.


One of his worker poses for the camera as he installs a big plastic bag on top of the soil for re-production purposes. Lachumannan has 3 workers who helps him daily on the farm.


During weekends and peak seasons, his wife, Selvi helps him to manage the stall. Selvi explaining to their customers about their products.


Most of the vegetables have been sold out by dawn. Lachumannan’s stall sells cabbages, eggplants, pumpkins and many more. They are cheap and fresh.


One of his friend, who owns a strawberry farm, dropped by during the day to meet him. Strawberry is one of the main products produced in Cameron Highlands.


Selecting the perfect cabbages to be sold to his customers. Lachumannan putting cabbages into basket to be washed before selling.


Instead of buying cabbages readily on the table, you can pick & cut your own cabbage. Lachumannan picking fresh cabbages to be delivered to his customer.
