Magnus’ 1st birthday party was a blast! Sharon and Paul’s little guests were treated a day of messy play with lots of opportunities for the children to get down and dirty! Everything was carefully thought through! We especially love the edible paint section, where the kids can just get totally messy, eat the paint if they wanted to without getting a tummy ache. We love all the different stations that were prepared for the children – from the mini pool to the animal farm! Parties like these are as much of fun for the kids as it is for the adults!
In March & April 2019, we raised funds for Make-A-Wish, whose mission is to create life changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. As the result of this fund raising, we managed to sponsor Ammar’s wish to go to a water park with his family. Ammar, 11 has acute lymphoblastic leukemia since 2017 and travels from Port Dickson to HUKM Cheras twice a month for his treatment. The doctors in public hospitals usually work with Make-A-Wish to identify families whose children are critically ill and come from a lower income group as part of the wish-fulfilment criteria.
A few of us from the Stories team managed to head over to A Famosa Water Theme Park to meet the family. Ammar’s dad is the sole bread winner of the family with 6 children (1 was away studying), and the last time he came to A Famosa Water Park was during his honeymoon! There were 3 volunteers from Make-A-Wish who made the whole event go so smoothly. We presented gifts from Make-A-Wish to the family and had a good chat getting to know them. After a day of fun in the sun, we headed to Malacca town (Grace’s hometown!) to walk down Jonker Street and eat delicious food!
We’re glad to be part of such a meaningful event with Make-A-Wish.
People say that university life is one of the most memorable times of our lives. It’s true especially if you are living away from your home country, meeting lots of new friends in an environment that promises lots of adventure. For En Tzer and Krystle, it was Melbourne Trinity College that brought them together. Staying in the same boarding house, going for house parties, buying wine and shopping for ‘shot glasses’ were all part of the experience that brought them together. Soon, 3 years passed and they both ended back home in Malaysia.
En Tzer and Krystle’s wedding happened last year and we thought it’s still a great one to share with you! Here’s some of our favourite images from the day, that started off at The Club, Saujana and ended at TPC KL.
This is the 4th year that we have photographed the Nasimuddin family during the Raya celebrations. It’s a wonderful way to see the family grow, especially the children who were so tiny 4 years ago and have now blossomed into cuter versions of themselves. Thank you for trusting us yet again! We love this annual tradition that you have and I hope more families will adopt the same tradition so that their family heritage of images will continue to grow through the years.

Sometimes, all we need is that photo to remind us of the happiness we feel when we are with our family. It is just the simple things that give us the biggest pleasures in life; relationships with the most important people in our life.
