the Negative Effect is a documentary about a group of youngster in love with lomography, which is using film camera to capture their life. This is a passion republic's production, directed by famous short film director Dick Chua. Support Local production, yeah~!

Bear was curious about those stuff in the cage, she went near and found that they were actually those who were blamed for the recent swine flu, PIG~! Anyway, it's proven they were innocent for the blame. Bear was so curious to go near the truck to shoot the pig, i warned her not to stay too close, as she was just standing behind the ass of the pig, haha. Rain started falling on our head urging us to finish our shooting. the end.
看它好傷心的樣子, 好像就知道自己將會被宰了似的 | it looks sad knowing itself will be slaughtered soon

After the fish market, it was continue with stalls selling dry ingredients, vegetables and fruits. Starting from there I felt ease with smell, don't need to be distracted by the dirty water or fish scale. A lot of foreign workers can be seen here, they would usually hang around to buy foods and daily stuff.
看看這些紅通通的水果, 想必一定很甜 | Look at these red jambu, look like it tasted sweet
突然一位阿嫂出現在我的view finder里, 還裝著很自然的選擇水果順便搶鏡頭, 哈哈 | A auntie suddenly appeared in my viewfinder, acting like nothing while picking her fruit, i think she intended to get into my frame.

還很樂意被拍, 覺得隔天會在報章上看到自己. | they keep asking me to shoot, as if they were going to see themselves on tomorrow's paper
Many of the people in pasar thought we were from the press, maybe it's because they don't get to see youngster in pasar, moreover we are with cameras. Maybe most batu pahatan think that photography cannot be kept as a pure hobby( it just occurred last night, i went for a photo shooting near a temple, and i was being asked if i was a reporter)
傳統式的乾糧店 | a traditional dry ingredient shop
在這條有雨蓋的巷子, 多數都是友族同胞的檔子, 走過這巷子, 我們到了巴殺的外圍, 拍拍陳舊的建築物還有batu河. In this street, most of the hawkers are malay selling their malay stuff, went through it, we came to the border of the whole market, shoot some old buildings and batu river.
Me, Bear Lim and Sandra met up early in the sunday morning to go for a shooting at the marketplace of Batu Pahat. We kicks-tarted the day going for tim-sum as breakfast, and the our local tim sum is not nice~, i miss the taman megah tim sum~!
After breakfast is already 8 something in the morning, it's considered late hour for pasar, however, the crowd is lesser means we can shoot easier, not exactly a bad thing. Few years a go i did came here for a shoot, while i was still using the canon eos 300 film slr, these time i'll be free to shoot as much since i got my dslr in action. In addition, Bear Lim said it's her first time going to pasar, it's proven that our essay topic "going to pasar" were all imagined and copied from "top 100 essays", hahaha. This is just my second time anyway.
認真就是專業(這個是抄襲 9x9 studio 名片上的 slogan 的) | Being Serious = Being Professional
The smell in pasar is definitely "undongable", in hokkien is dont beh diao. Back in my childhood time, whenever my dad drives pass the pasar, i would cover my nose tightly. Now, having wanted to shoot some photos, I'm gonna control myself, though i really felt like throwing out sometimes. This is the first time i went into the fish market section, the floor was wet and you can always step on some fish scale. Seeing the fish hawkers take care of the fishes, you wouldn't want to stand close. Now i get the telelens borrowed from my uncle in action, i can shoot from a distance, :D
