Re-discover Malaysia from another angle

The beautiful sights of Malaysia

Chuping, Perlis
Marang, Terengganu
Taiping Lake Garden, Perak
Floating Mosque, Terengganu
Sibuan, Sabah

Chok Yen Hau (MyRoadPlanner) is a Malaysian. 
He is not only a good writer but also a great photographer. 
He uses his lens to capture what he seen on his travel on his own homeland, Malaysia

He says, “Many of the beautiful spots are off-road or along the old routes. What I find strange is that most Malaysians focus solely on the destination when they think about travel. For me, our journey has started the moment we lock the door of our homes behind us. The journey is the real travel experience.”

Anuardan Art Postcard

The series of art postcards (2004) that I bought from Pasar Seni Art Market few years back. I will send out this series of postcards to lucky postcrossers.

Anuardan (Malaysia) painting are well articulate, the houses strongly vertical and depicted in surrealistic and semi abstract ways. Figure in his works, exquisitely nuanced, are pale shadows. He has relayed an impeding sense of foreboding, of everything being ultimately mutable. Even the intricate and detailed works on these domiciles seem ephemeral. This very ambiguity is profoundly disturbing. His image are imposing but never tactile and the colour utilised, of 'ditch' hues of earth-based tone succeed in lending his creation a sense of antiquity.

Seattle's Pike Place Market (Then & Now)

Concept and production by Ivey Seright Electronic Imaging, Seattle, Washington. 
Historical photograph provided by Seattle Museum of History and Industry. Contemporary photograph by Ed Lowe.

The Market opened August 17, 1907, and is one of the oldest continuously operated public farmers' markets in the United States.

Besides, I've asked postcrossers to share with me how they keep their postcards.
My postcards are 'growing' to thousand (?)..and wonder how others keepsake their collections.
