When Si meets Oui

A very long overdue wedding gift to my friend Susana who got married recently this year. Bless her that she became a muslim last Maal Hijrah and found her husband a few month later. And now she’s married!

It took me sometime to think of how to edit this video since I’ve never done a wedding video involving ‘mat saleh’ hehe so I ‘d like to make something different this time around. Particularly because Susana is a Spanish and she marries a French-Muslim-Man. Though I tried looking for Spanish song to compliment the video but  most of the song I know of turn out to be about heartbreak LOL! It sound so nice and yet it was actually about break ups, so you don’t want to put that no?

It was challenging to do this video since I had to ask some friends who was good in Spanish and French to translate for me, so that took some time to get reply. Then I was having trouble to think of the best way to edit the video, esp because I don’t want to make it too typical.

So for the first time, I used B&W (Black and White) on the first part before  bringing back the colour on the second (B&W is the least effect I like, I prefer the ones with colour). I did however sneak peek one coloured picture in between B & W so that people can see the dress they wear. And its beautiful no? It was a simple wedding , with few close friends of theirs,by the swimming pool and thats all. I didn’t get to see the akad nikah (marriage part) though, so I just shoot whatever’s available at that time. While trying my best not to let the bride know what I am up to haha it was supposed to be a surprise for her.

Anyway, here is the wedding video , let me know what you think…


Olympic 2012

I have to say it does look a lot like Hunger Games, only difference is that the ‘Olympic’ ring was on fire instead of  ‘Tribute’ .

And frankly speaking, it was a very good surprise to see these people appearing on the show:

And I have to admit, the montage was good,and they did brought something different from the usual opening. Go ahead Benedict, do the honour and say…

Instead of Happy Hunger Games, I think its more like:

“Happy Olympic Games & May The Odds Ever Be In Your Favor”

Yang Remeh Temeh – by Pak Pandir

Ada mata pandang
Ada telinga dengar
Ada mulut diam
Ada tangan garu
Ada kaki goyang

Ada otak pandai
Ada akal pakai
Ada bijak gadai
Ada mata pejam
Ada mulut kunyah

Yang remeh dan yang temeh
Berlegar di sekelilingmu
Yang remeh dan yang temeh
Berlegar di sekelilingmu
Buatlah tak tahu
Buatlah tak tahu

Rela jadi tunggul
Rela jadi patung
Tunggu dilelong
Suruh angguk-angguk
Suruh geleng-geleng

Oh puji lah aku
Ampu lah aku
Senang hidupmu
Ada tangan tadah
Ada maruah campak

Yang remeh dan yang temeh
Berlegar di sekelilingmu
Yang remeh dan yang temeh
Berlegar di sekelilingmu
Biarkan berlaku
Biarkan berlaku


The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference. 

By Robert Frost
Had I chosen a different road would it make a difference?
No, because I believe no matter where you go and how you try to change our life to be the way we want it to be. We always ends up to the way we are supposed to be.
