Vote Buying Scandal?

April 25th, 2013 | Personal, Weddings

Since election campaign started last week, my phone has been buzzing with messages from concerned friends and clients. “Louis, was your office used by someone for vote buying?” They sent me the link to a video that allegedly recorded this illegal activity. This video had gone viral with 3600 shares on Facebook which is great for anti-vote buying awareness but not so good for us who were inadvertently implicated in this scandal.

The location where the allegedly suspicious activity happened was our former office. We moved out a year ago but we left the large sized poster on the glass panels and our signage on the door. We should have known better.

We relocated to a larger unit in the same building and have NOTHING to do with whatever that was going on in the video. However we really appreciate your concern and messages. We are touch by how much some of your care. Here is a shot of our new studio. If you have not dropped by, please do and give me a tinkle before you head over.

Lost & Found

March 22nd, 2013 | Personal

When you lose something, drop a wallet, forget a package in a taxi, or in my case leave behind my beloved iPad in the front pocket of the passenger seat, you just don’t expect to see it again. The good old days of honesty and sincere customer service is as scarce as dinosaur sightings, so I thought.

Louis Pang's iPad

We were on our way to 36-hour journey to Washington DC. Woke up at 3:30am to start a marathon air travel that took us from Kota Kinabalu to Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, LA and finally Washington DC. I only realized the iPad was missing when I boarded the Tokyo/LA-bound flight. It wasn’t the hardware that concerned me most but the personal info & Amazon shopping account. Imagine someone racking up thousands of dollars of shopping bill at Amazon! As I sat in my seat, I said a short prayer. It was outside of my control. I can let this ruin the rest of the trip or I surrender this to God and Malaysia Airlines crew.

Flight stewardess Nget Swee was like an angel to me. Calm, assuring and proactive she took down my details and contacted the ground staff at Narita Aiport, Tokyo so they could attend to me during the 90-minute layover. As I disembarked the aerobridge, an earnest Japanese MAS staff greeted me and attended to me. Ten minutes later, this gentleman informed me there had not been any sighting of an iPad. He filed a report on my behalf. I wasn’t optimistic.

When we arrived LAX 12 hours later, we followed up with Darryl Stripsky from MAS baggage service at LAX. “We have a good record of recovering lost items. Hopefully yours will turn up,” said Darryl. There was no guarantee of course. He made a follow up report immediately and within hours, he contacted me for more details of my flight itinerary and the details of my missing iPad. Two days later, MAS Lost & Found office at KLIA contacted me to drop by the office when I return from USA. They located a unit of iPad that fits my description.

Long story short, 17 days after I left behind the iPad in an aircraft, I was reunited with it. Once it was lost, now it is found. I kissed and hugged it.

I am so glad to be proven wrong with my skepticism and lack of faith in the decency of humanity. I am much quicker to judge and denounce than I am to praise and compliment. To all the doomsayers of our national airline, I have encountered only professionalism, care and kindness in this incident. Traditional values of honesty & integrity is well and alive in MAS. I only wish I could personally thank the airline’s security personnel who located the iPad and reported it to the Lost & Found.

May & Jeffrey’s Wedding at Westin Kuala Lumpur

February 19th, 2013 | Weddings

There is a saying, “Only those who are faithful with small things can be entrusted with bigger things.”

May’s exquisite taste and her handpicked team of florists and decorators certainly had a great eye for the finest details. She had everything covered for her wedding even if it meant she had to work hard till the wee hours the night before her big day. That’s determination, girl! From the newly wed car license plate, favours, programme, place cards, flowers, bouquets, wedding gown, garter, down to the personalize take away bags for desserts she had thought of everything. Hats off to Westin Kuala Lumpur for pulling this off, and Wishing Tree for the decoration and flowers. Many beautiful decorations were let down by poor lighting, but not at Westin. The each table has a dedicated pin light which accentuated the center pieces. It was a festival of light meets a festival of flowers. I cannot be more thrilled photographing this.

May kept apologizing being obsessive with the details. “Louis, I know I am crazy. But I’ll leave it to you to decide to shoot what’s important,” May repeated many times. It is GREAT to know what’s important to a bride. What’s important to a bride is important to me.

Oh, did I mention about the dessert bar that was open during the pre-dinner cocktail? Gosh, those macaroons, marsh mellows, candy, chocolates, and cupcakes. I was told they were as yummy as they look. It was all gone in no time. What fun to photograph such a beautiful wedding.

So what about the groom, Jeffrey? Well, he married a woman with great taste and attention to details. That can only be good. May and Jeffrey, I hope your marriage will be more beautiful than your wedding. Cheers!
