AD: Satu | Malaysian Cuisine
melonstudio: I’ve been around Melbourne for around 7 years now, and I always think about food from back home. Malaysian food have a certain flair to it I reckon. Besides being super cheap in Malaysia, the taste is different. So far, very few places I’ve been to in Melbourne live up to the name “Malaysian Cuisine”. Why? Very simple. The chefs are not Malaysians. So even if it serves up some of...

Limelight | June
It’s been awhile since I was able to just sit down and relax. Let alone take one of my many cameras out and shoot whatever I want. Or not shoot for that matter. Work has been piling up and it’s been great! But there just isn’t anything like a night where I can simply do what I want, to take or not to take photos of anything, and just kick back and enjoy some live music. Full...
Engaged: Paul & Amanda
I first got to meet Amanda a few years back. We were kinda complete opposites if you know what I mean. We couldn’t agree on almost everything, and we argue daily. LOL. But then when we started to get along, our whole dynamic changed. We became close buddies. Funny how things work out isn’t it? And now, my little girl is all grown up. Engaged to long time boyfriend Paul, AKA the...
R.I.P | Vincent Wong
Vincent was one of the friendliest person I ever known. And we share a whole heap of interest together from photography to bike riding to cars. It was a shame that a truck has to take his life a few months ago, but I do know that he is up stairs right next to the big man smiling down on us. I am still a little sadden every time we talk about something and Vince’s name would come up, or...
AD: Monga Dessert Lounge
For a very long time now, there hasn’t been a proper place for dessert in Melbourne. There has always been just one. Pancake Parlour. But there hasn’t been anything like what Hong Kong, China, Singapore or Malaysia has to offer as far as dessert goes. Well, that has finally changed. I give you Monga Dessert Lounge. It’s located on one of the main streets in Box Hill, with a...
John Mayer | Melbourne 2010
I was one of the lucky few that was able to see John Mayer. He’s one of my all time favourite artist. I say artist why? Because not only is he famous for his songs, he writes, shoot videos, and most of all, I love his photography. It’s one of those one hit wonders that he occasionally shows to the public on this Tumblr. And they are AMAZING. I really wish there was some way I could see...
It's about the soul
“When you photograph people in colour you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in B&W, you photograph their souls!” - Ted Grant That’s what I did during the Limelight Show in April 2010. I managed to capture a few of these great local musicians, and capture their soul as they are playing on stage. Thought I might share it with you guys… ...
Urban Portraits | Part 2
Melbourne is such a great city. It’s one of the most multi-cultured city I can think of. Probably beside New York. I just love how this city has so much colour in it. So much life, even if it is in a dodgy alley way… For some reason, this city inspires me a whole lot…I’ve been talking to some friends over the pass few weeks, and I’ve realized that my post here...
simply beautiful: DAVE & HUILI. ENGAGED.
I love the concept, I love the idea behind it. And I LOVE THE OUTCOME! Here’s some more shots from a great friend of mine Jonathan Ong. Check him out. He’s cool! ;) jnln: simply beautiful: DAVE & HUILI. ENGAGED. A day of exploration; of fascination and wonder; of magical discovery to the unknown. Dave & Li are good friends of mine. And we decided to take a little...
Urban Portraits | Part 1
I decided to call this one urban portraiture simple because while I was out shooting this, I’ve learnt that there was so much more to photography than I knew. Especially when it comes to portraiture. Rachel was the lucky winner of free photoshoot worth $650 that we donated to Ovarian Cancer Foundation Australia. For that she brought along her sister, Julie and we had massive amounts of fun...
