I’ve been living and working in Jakarta, Indonesia for almost a year now but it wasn’t until 10 months in that I did anything worthy of bringing my camera along. That was until I decided to go to Ragunan Zoo in South Jakarta. If I recall correctly, entrance fees were only Rp5.000 or $0.50 and once inside you are treated to a wide-array of creatures. The sights, sounds and smells of Mother Nature should never be underestimated and this shot captures perhaps one of the most beautiful sights of Mother Nature: a beautiful Peacock in all of its colourful prime.

In contrast to the previous pic, this peacock (yup, its still a peacock) is all the more stunning due to its lack of colours. A beautiful white peacock, as white as snow on a Christmas Day (at least as portrayed in films). I particularly love the way the sun shines off the peacock’s wonderful white feathers.

Can’t remember what this bird was, some kind of eagle or hawk. Though caged, trapped and dependent on its carers, the bird nevertheless perches proud, tall and full of swagger.

Let architects sing of aesthetics that bring Rich clients in hordes to their knees; Just give me a home, in a great circle dome Where stresses and strains are at ease.

This dome is simply spectacular. I especially love the maroon decor which reminds me very much of the Moorish architecture in Andalucia, Southern Spain. The shot was taken inside Putra Mosque in Putrajaya which can accommodate an impressive 15,000 worshipers although when I visited just before sunrise it was pretty empty making the place a beautifully serene, quiet and peaceful vibe.

As the sun sets and the darkness of night takesover, visitors at Putrajaya are treated to a wonderful display of lights dancing across the banks of its man-made river. This shot captures Istana Darul Ehsan (Darul Ehsan Palace) which is one of the official residences of the Sultan of Selangor (who kindly allowed the Federal Government to build the Putrajaya city in his sultanate) and the marvellously-designed Seri Wawasan Bridge with its sail ship inspiration.

As alluded to before, night time in Putrajaya is a feast for the eyes as demonstrated by this shot. The Putra Mosque becomes wonderfully illuminated after sun set that showcases its glory beautifully. There’s also a nice walkway to nearby that runs parallel to the man-made river. Definitely worth visiting.

At a certain stage in his evolution, man himself had been able to lay hold upon a higher order of things, which raised him above the level of the beasts that perish, and enabled him to see, at least in the distance, the shining towers of the City of God.

Purpose-built cities tend to have a negative connotation about them. Often derided as soulless places, lacking in personality, character or colour. I’m inclined to agree but a short trip to Malaysia’s Putrajaya is pretty worthwhile nonetheless especially to see a glimpse of some impressive structures like this mosque by a man-made river. Known as Masjid Besi (Iron Mosque) or more formally as the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, it has no need for fans or an air-conditioning system, instead employing an intricate “"Architectural Wire Mesh."

Way back in September 2010 I took the first small step that would eventually lead to where I am today. After 22 years living under the loving care of my family I decided to fly the nest and pursue a Masters degree in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. What more iconic symbol of KL - as the city is known - is there than the world famous Petronas Twin Towers. Sadly, although I spent a year and a three months there, I never did get the chance to go up the towers. Instead this shot was taken from the nearby KL Tower (Menara KL) which in my opinion is the best place to see the Petronas Twin Towers in all of its towering glory.

I recall back in my high school days when we were comparing the power and prestige of the US President with the UK Prime Minister, my teacher used the example of their official residences. Whilst the US President lived in the grand palatial White House in Washington D.C., the UK Prime Minister lived in a simple (at least from the outside decor) house on a simple (well it used to be) street: 10 Downing St. This shot shows Perdana Putra which houses the Malaysian Prime Minister’s Office in Putrajaya.
