Mark 12:31-32

Mark 12:31-32 - 'And you shall love the LORD our God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' That is the first commandment. "And the second, like it, is this : 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

Quote of the day : You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. - C. S. Lewi

Found out that I have never share this picture before. My first portrait shooting session with my school club, the one pictures that come out best (well, would be one of the best if the background does not have so many extra things LOL) during that session. Wished that I have a better lens to isolate the background and the subject. Oh well...

Japan Day 4 Part 2, Kyoto

Aha, and so I am back writing about my Japan trip. As a recap, continue from here.

Took bus after visiting the Imperial Palace to Kinkaku-Ji, Temple of the Golden Pavilion.

Met with a bunch of cute secondary school boys in the bus.

They stopped at where we are, so we asked for a group photo =D Ended up they went to the same place we are going, visiting Kinkaku-Ji. Looks like a class field trip for them, perhaps.

Statue of St. Francis Xavier

Quote of the day : Never regret. If it's good, it's wonderful. If it's bad, it's an experience.

The only European left standing on St Paul's Hill today is a Basque Spaniard and a 1529 Masters degree graduate from the renowned University of Paris. He could have lived it up, his was a family of noblemen and estate holders, but he chose priesthood and spent his adult life converting and trying to convert people of Tamil, Malay and Japanese tongues to Roman Catholicism. His missionary tenure in Malacca was fleeting, just three years from, but then his life was short. St. Francis passed away in 1552 in Sancian, a desolate island off the shores of China, while awaiting a boat to go to the mainland to preach.

The Statue of St Francis Xavier stands in front of the ruins of St. Paul's Church, completed only in 1952 marking the 400th anniversary of St Francis Xavier's visit to Malacca while on his way to the Far East. When he died in China a year later and his body was sent back to Malacca, where it was interred here for nine months. When a decision was made to transfer it to Goa, the exhumers were astounded to learn that his body showed little sign of decay, even though it had been buried for nine months. This led to request for the missionary to be made a saint. So in order to be canonized, the Catholic church needed a relic and thats when the arm of Francis Xavier was severed, after nine month without life, it still dripped blood. So if you take a look at Francis Xavier's statue, you will see that his right arm is also missing. That is not the initial design of the statue. A day after the statue was consecrated, a large tree fell on it, breaking off its right arm. With that, it stands today without its right arm.

Umeda Sky Building

Quote of the day : There is only one success - to spend your life in your own way. - Christopher Morley

The Umeda Sky Building (梅田スカイビル) is the seventh-tallest building in Osaka City, Japan, and one of the city's most recognizable landmarks. It consists of two 40-story towers with the height of 173 m (568 ft) that connect at their two uppermost stories, with bridges and an escalator crossing the wide atrium-like space in the center. Located in the Umeda district of Kita-ku, this building features a rooftop observatory, The Floating Garden Observatory, as well as an underground market that attempts to recreate the atmosphere of Osaka in the early 20th century. At the base of the towers is an urban garden with walking trails and water features.

A little bit like some kind of scene in your game huh?

Daimaru Peacock Supermarket

Guys, this is a link where you can help out Japan. Help spread the word, hopefully this will make a difference. =)

Here is somehow an unique architecture I saw at Shinsaibashi. Not really a classy branded shop, but guess what, this is a department store a.k.a. supermarket! There are a number of Daimaru store across Japan, and this one located at Shinsaibashi is one classy store with the interior of the store is exquisitely decorated.

Chobits girl

Video of the day,

A very inspiring true story!

This is one random shot I took while at Japan. Saw this girl checking the bus schedule while I was waiting for bus at Kyoto, and after that bump into her again at Ginkaku-ji. She sure looks a bit like Chobits with her ear cover. 4 aftershocks hit Japan yesterday, and I wonder if she is alright at Japan. Hm...

Dataran Penggaram

One of my friend told me, life is easy, you don't need to make it that complicated every time. Get a paper, list down the pros and cons and you will get the answer. I guess I know where I am heading next.

Alright, a picture of my hometown again. Nothing special, but I just love the flare and the bling bling of this picture. ;) I still wonder why my hometown is called Bandar Penggaram. @.@

Kinkaku-ji, Temple of the Golden Pavilion

Quote of the day : Remember, today is the tomorrow you worried about yesterday. - Dale Carnegie

Kinkaku-ji (金閣寺, Temple of the Golden Pavilion), also known as Rokuon-ji (鹿苑寺, Deer Garden Temple) is a Zen Buddhist temple located at Kyoto, Japan. The garden complex is an excellent example that of Muromachi period garden design. This building is designed as a National Special Historic Site and a National Special Landscape, it is also one of the 17 World Cultural Heritage site in Kyoto. So you can just imagine how awesome Kyoto is, with 17 World Cultural Heritage site all squeezed in one city! Kinkaku-ji is one of the most popular building in Japan, so remember to pay her a visit if you travel to Kyoto next time!

By the way, this building is no joke, being called Temple of the Golden Pavilion, the gold you can see in the picture is well, real gold!

The Baboon House

Ecclesiastes 4 : 9-12 
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woes to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Again, if two lie down together, they will keep warm, but how can one be warm alone? Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken

Some random abandoned building? Nah, this is actually a cafe that makes good burger in Malacca called The Baboon House! Been here once to celebrate my friend's birthday. Do not judge a book by its cover, especially those oldies shop in Malacca. The design is purposely kept this way to retain the old antique feel that blends together with the feel around Jonker. Anyway, this is the back door garden of the cafe.

Mount Fuji

Video of the day,
Creativity start from a belief, do not doubt yourselves and start believing today!

Mount Fuji (富士山), is the highest mountain in Japan standing 33,776.24 m (12,389 ft) tall and located 100 kilometers (60 miles) south-west of Tokyo, and can even be seen from there on a clear day. It is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" (三霊山) along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku. Visibility tends to be better during the colder seasons of the year than in summer, and in the early morning and late evening hours. The easiest way to view Mount Fuji is from the train on a trip along the Tokaido Line between Tokyo and Osaka.

Am considered quite lucky since there is no cloud (well, just a little bit at the peak which is negligible) blocking and with sufficiently good visibility during the time I was at the viewing point of Mount Fuji. Trust me, it is way more magnificent than it looks in this picture.

Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower

Quote of the day : I failed some subjects in exam, but my friend passed it all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the Owner of Microsoft - Bill Gates

Ever wonder what is the name of this magnificent clock tower situated at Malacca Dutch Square? It is called Tan Beng Swee Clock Tower build by a third generation Chinese philanthropic millionaire family. No, it is not built by Tan Beng Swee but his son, Tan Jiak Kim, to fulfill his father's wish. He is also the person who donated both the bridge adjacent to the clocktower and land for the Chinese cemetery.

Aqua City Odaiba : The Fountain

Aqua City Odaiba is a large scale shopping complex located right next to Odaiba Kaihin Park. There have some really magnificent night view at that particular location like the Statue of Liberty, Rainbow Bridge, and Tokyo skyline in the distance. Inside the building is based on the theme of "Tokyo Reso-to (Tokyo Resort Island)" where you can almost feel the refreshing sea breeze.

No tripod is allowed, that is what a security personnel told me while I was setting up to shoot this picture. Handheld, and glad that my shaky hand did not messed up the picture ;)
