I love shooting editorial assignments for Borneo Insider’s Guide magazine (biG) for reasons only the team members and the subjects of focus would understand and appreciate. Back in 2010, we did a piece called Reflections of Aidilfitri and shot the whole set at the Ambassador Suite of the Empire Hotel & Country Club followed by Gong Xi Fa Cai feature the following year. This year, biG magazine features four unique individuals in the humble Abode who share their culinary interpretations of Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
