Bhutan via Huawei P10 plus

It is our honor to participate in the recent trip to Bhutan following Master Chua and special thanks to Ms Ada Poon and Janice Poon too !
From the moment we touch down, I already fall in love with this country which known for its monasteries, fortresses (or dzongs). Most Bhutanese are devout Buddhists. And one of the cornerstones of Buddhism is that it’s wrong to kill animals because they are part of the divine creation. Same time, has set some impressive environmental benchmarks whereby Bhutan is not merely carbon neutral, it’s also a carbon sink—making it one of the few countries in the world to have negative carbon emissions, thanks to Bhutan’s massive 72% of country with tree covered

All below images were captured by Huawei P10 plus

during our transit in India from Bamgkok, we were waiting at the airport for almost an hour due to bad weather condition in Bhutan. As I know due to the high attitude at Bhutan airport, only a handful of pilot are experience to fly to Bhutan

approaching Bhutan, The most happy country in the world

Our first stopby, for lunch, which is around 15mins drive from the aiport. Love the colorful deco in the restaurant itself. The food? hmm, spicy and salty

free fruit !!

Memorial Chorten, one of the main attraction in the capital , Thimphu to honor the third Druk Gyalpo, Jigme Dorji Wangchuck (1928–1972),

The iron chain bridge at Tachog Lhakhang was build in 1300s as one of the oldest bridge in Bhutan

Morning view from our hotel room

when I walking down from my room for breakfast, I was amazed by the view at the back of our hotel. I guess I spend around 30mins admiring the view and taking photos before I had my breakfast

The other side of the hotel with great view as well

The prayer flag. Traditionally, prayer flags come in sets of five: one in each of five colors. The five colors are arranged from left to right in a specific order: blue, white, red, green, and yellow. The five colors represent the five elements (Earth , Water, Air, Space,Fire

another amazing view from our lunch venue overseeing a village with padi field

The feeling with breezing air while enjoying our lunch is just so great !

Punakha Dzong. the second oldest and second largest dzong in Bhutan was the administrative centre and the seat of the Government of Bhutan. The area is so huge and just remember they close at 6pm. Make sure you have enough time to walk around in the Dzong

The entrance of Punakha Dzong.

Master Chua at Punakha Dzong

A very friendly monk. He was on the phone when I shooting him and he post this shoot once he saw me and noted with a smile

Master Chua in front of Punakha Dzong

each day, we check in different hotels at different town. This is another location nearby Chimi Lhakhang

2 little monks in Chimi Lhakhang serving water , juice and even 3-in-1 coffee for visitors who hike up to the temple.

raining scene while we travelling to another town

the 2nd last day where we begin our toughest journey, the trip to Tiger Nest , Paro Taktsang. We ride 1,5 hours and walk another 3 hours before we reach to the temple

after almost 4 hours hiking, here we are , the famous Paro Taktsang. While I thought we have complete the journey….wait, there are still steps from this point to the temple !!! yes, it took me another hour to reach the temple door steps

the final day before we left Bhutan. All of us got the chance to wear the local traditional costume

Kyichu Lhakhang, the famous temple where understand that Carina Lau and Tony Leung Chiu Wai were blessed in this tremple as well during their wedding ceremony , July 2008. There is a belief that the two orange trees in the courtyard of Kyichu Lhakhang bear fruit throughout the year.

Prayer wheels can be found everywhere in Bhutan and are used to accumulate wisdom and merit (good karma) and to purify negativities (bad karma).

The Lakhor prayer wheels are usually placed surrounding the monastery. People will walk around, clockwise to the entire monastery , turning each prayer wheel one by one as for lessings and good wishes

Just another day in Bhutan with Peaceful mind and lovely life. Now, do you agree this is the happiest country in the world?

    Yes, this is a dream to me, I daydream a lot and let me share with you a few of my dreams here. I always dream of creating a website to record every moments of my life and share with my kiddo when their grow up one day and also dream about carrying my cameras and travel around the world, see the world thru my eye,yes, I love travel, it is my ultimate dream to travel around the world, learning thru travel is the best dream I ever have.

As Malaysia Wedding Photographer with international wedding photography membership (WPJA, AGWPJA, WPPI & PPA), I started my photography passion at the end of year 2007. Like most of the beginners, I was purely having fun with my DSLR capturing my family members portraits and events. After attend the talk by one of the master wedding photographer, it change my whole world. I was so touched by the slideshow shown on the projector for the showcase of prewedding and church wedding, the touching moments, the dramatic angles, all these impact was so strong that it hit direct into my heart and awake my passion towards wedding photography. From there onwards, I have focus all my passion on wedding photography and never feel more satisfied when I capture the moments for couple which last for a life time. Whenever I imagine the couple looking back those photos captured by me in ten, fifteen years from now and think, "yeah, that was the moments" "look, how silly you was!" "oh, I cried when I first saw you walks down the aisle i", "yes, I remember what your dad told me that day when he placed your hand in my right hand from his arm after walks down the aisle".. all these keep my heart warm and keep me going on & on for this long path without a single regret or tiredness ...
