A Song in Your Heart

A song is a composition that contains vocal parts that are performed and commonly accompanied by musical instrument. It is something that can change our mood and something that you would love to hear.

I find it interesting looking at children invigorating when u play some good music. I just love staring at there sway and hearing there claps along with the music. It comes natural to some kids that sometimes you don’t even have to teach them. It comes naturally to them because God has a put a song in their hearts.

A Song in your heart is not just about music. It’s an attitude that we should possess. Having the song and thoughts of being grateful, being excited about our future and expecting good things from God. It’s a song of freedom. Author Joel Osteen once said, “God has put a well of joy inside of each one of us. If we can learn to tap on this joy we can be happy no matter what our circumstances are.”

So, what’s the song inside your heart?
Keep singing a song of joy in your heart despite any circumstances.

…. Shout joyfully to the LORD, all the earth;
Break forth in song, rejoice, and sing praises. Psalm 98:4

A Mere View

This is a refreshing place somewhere along the lake in Putrajaya. We drop by to have our picture taken, and discovered that it was a perfect place for a landscape photo opt. unfortunately we don’t have enough time to do opt and planning a second trip was on the way. Away from the busy life, calm, refresh by the fresh air, I wish we could have this in the city.

A Macro Set

On a Sunday afternoon, I went down the condo and took a walk at the pool & garden area. I found the landscape around the block interesting and did plan for this walk for quite a long time and finally I was there. With my cam on board, I took a bit of macro of some species present. Macro was my starting point in photography but I don’t actually own a macro lens and the absence of it did not stop me from shooting macro. Shooting on an aperture priority, on a cloudy afternoon, this may not be a real macro shot technically but here are some of the shots.

The Federal Administrative City: Putrajaya

Last weekend, friends from SG and Dubai were in town for a very short visit. We went to a sight seeing trip to Putrajaya. Putrajaya sits on a magnificent 4,931 hectares of land within the Multimedia Super Corridor. It is located 25km south of Kuala Lumpur and 20km north of the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA). Being served by a network of highways, it is highly accessible from all parts of the country. It’s a 30 minutes drive from KL by a private car, and will take 45 minutes to 1 hour if you take bus from KL.
As we go and explore the place, I have noticed that putrajaya is a distinctive place, having a mixed of Islamic, modern classical architecture and a slight of a gothic architecture. But being a Muslim country in Asia, the Islamic architecture was very distinctive through out the place.
The bridges were also eye catching. Mostly it’s a combination of an overhead arc structure and a classical twin pylon cablestayed bridge. Its also denotes a futuristic aerodynamic bridge, which forms a gateway entrance to the federal administrative capital of Malaysia. There was also this bridge which forms the main approach to the boulevard having architectural quality with decorative artificial stones and cladding.

The traffic free city has lush greenery; botanical gardens are spread across the landscape enhanced by large bodies of water and wetlands making the area a very good site for landscape photography.
