What I’m looking for is to earn myself few days of vacation during the CNY, and enjoy the shooting with the new Sony A7ii !!! As promised earlier (long time ago actually), the full review of A7ii is finally on its way, and there will be another review comes afterwards, the Sony SEL2470Z F4 !

Well, wish all of you stay healthy and happy always! And wish more camera and lens reviews coming on this blog! Goat year huat ah!!

The Food Street, Muar, Malaysia

Muar is considered as a small town located in the Johor state of Malaysia which is very near to my hometown – Batu Pahat. Both of them are famous for their cooked food and they have their own food street too. However, both of the food streets are very different to each other where the food street in my hometown consists of few sections of food stalls, and you can only order and enjoy the food within each section; while the food street in Muar has a common coffee shop which allows you to enjoy any food from the food street (oh yea, wink )

One of the famous food you cannot miss here is the Kway Chap. What is kway chap? Here it is!
