I have been wanting to have my own camera ever since during my childhood. But knowing that I am coming from not so rich family of 9 siblings, that idea of owning a camera was just a dream. When I was 15, I managed to accumulate some RM75 out of my pocket money and bought a brand new camera, YASHICA. I wasted no time and began flipping the accompanying booklet and instruction manual of my new camera. From the booklet I began to know some photographic jargon and technical things and gadget of a camera such as filter, flash, aperture, shutter speed and 135 film.
I wasted no time and started taking picture of my dorm mates and panoramic view behind my hostel. But with caution in mind that 135 film was costly and therefore only selected subjects will be pictured.
Then I was one of not so many pupils in my school who have a camera. I started taking pictures of most of my school events and really enjoyed it. Being the cameraman, among my colleagues I am the least pictured person. But I have no grumble. What grumbled me was when my friends ordered prints of their photos some of them wouldn't pay me. But that did not hinder my enthusiasm on photography... Photography remained to be my top hobby.
That was some 27 years ago and ... to be continued!
