"When no one comes to visit you and you are alone...I do feel that I am just like a ship coming to harbour. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
That's what I am... Waiting for the wind, so I can set sail again over the high seas. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And when the wind blows, I can adjust the sails and I can sail up wind..."
Words from my kong kong 爷爷, my grandfather at age 90, when I visited him in 2013 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
In 2019, I went to visit him again at age 96.
He’s still the same man I know... A colourful storyteller, wildly expressive, quick witted, unapologetic, deeply poetic, cheerful, analytical, inquisitive, inspiring, strong minded and open hearted.
Thanks for being a hobbyist filmmaker and photographer when you were younger, because your interest positively influenced Mum in the art and in turn encouraged me to follow the love of capturing moments, people and stories.
I look forward to spending more time and having many more beers with you kong kong.
Cheers and one for the road.
