Property photography assignment from November 2013 for Armada Properties featured in February 2014 edition of Butra Home Concept magazine. It was a pleasure to have worked with MixMediaWorx to produce these images.

BHC Magazine February 2014 | “Conveniently located on Jalan Ong Sum Ping, Mahligai Apartments are just minutes away from Bandar Seri Begawan. These apartments have been designed to provide the ultimate in contemporary living. You will have easy access to the city and also a refuge from it.

Once you enter a Mahligai Apartment you are stepping into your very own private oasis, one that is spacious with sleek features and furnishings throughout. Modern artwork and light fixtures add a touch of elegance to the living areas. The layout and design of the kitchen work in harmony to create a fabulously functional space. The master bedroom can only be described as being superbly comfortable with an inviting ensuite – making this room perfect for relaxation. There are also many windows which allow a continual flow of light through the apartment making it bright and cheerful.


And because Mahligai Apartments are all about enjoying a luxurious lifestyle you have access to a fully equipped gymnasium; a cafeteria; pool and children’s playground – all at your doorstep and ideal for either single persons or families.”

Freelancing: Be Your Own Boss

It’s 11.30pm and in less than six hours I will be getting up to catch a flight to Singapore for the weekend. Is there a relevance to what this post is about? Absolutely not other than I had just received an email from the Editorial Assistant of Butra Home Concept Magazine and he attached a sneak copy of my interview for their June edition so instead of going to bed   like I should,  I thought I would post this up before I say goodbye to May 2013. So, here’s me stepping out of my comfort zone to be in front of the lens for a change. See you all in June! 🙂

My favourite portrait of His Majesty from my first and only
National Day celebration coverage

His Majesty, the Sultan of Brunei, dressed in a white military outfit and a maroon beret, saluted as the national anthem was played, before headed down to the field to inspect the guard of honour.
