PERTIWI Soup Kitchen

Last night my wife & I joined the PERTIWI (Pertubuhan Tindakan Wanita Islam) Soup Kitchen for its Wednesday night run. It was our second time as volunteers and I decided to document it.

A unique aspect of the soup kitchen is ensuring that all who we attend to get their share of the meals, including the ones in the last 3 images :)

I encourage everyone to chip in & do their best within their means to improve conditions & solve problems in our society. It need not be with a soup kitchen, but at least know what you can do starting with your own family, and followed by friends and neighbours. Just sitting at home and applauding the good works isn't enough.

For full info, including how to volunteer and/or donate, please visit the official facebook page here:

"Each person's every joint must perform a charity every day the sun comes up : to act justly between two people is a charity; to help a man with his mount, lifting him onto it or hoisting up his belongings onto it is a charity: a good word is a charity, every step you take to prayers is a charity and removing a harmful thing from the road is a charity." - Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)

4 Days Young

I had another fun newborn session with Sarah recently. This time, the beautiful baby you see here was born only 4 days earlier!

Working with a baby this small is excellent practice for parenthood :)

Atiyah & Aiman - Nikah

Its always special photographing a friend's wedding. It ends up being so relaxed cause I know a number of people already at the event.

Atiyah made a great choice with her theme colour. Different from many weddings i've covered before. And the pelamin, wow!

Congrats to both of you :)
