My photo

Hi there ! I’m Hasif Rahman, a freelance photographer based in Malaysia. Just a husband trying to make a living while pursuing his dream. I’m a father to be to my little princess in my wife’s little tummy. Picking up a camera in my early 20s and never putting it down again has been one of the most important things I’ve done in my life. I’m a photographer who loves to blog / review / writes about my life. I’m travelling the world with photography ~ Hoping you enjoy what you see. Take a seat, drink a cup of hot chocolate and stay a while. Have a good day reading !

THE JOY OF LIFE

Audrey Marissa, kini berumur 4 bulan. Anak kesayangan ayah ini membesar dengan sihat sejahtera. Alhamdulillah. Seorang yang suka senyum dan friendly dengan orang lain. Talk to her, and she'll smile and sometimes she talks too ! (in baby language). Meniarap belum boleh lagi, tetapi asyik nak suruh dukung or sokong dia untuk berdiri. Ikut step la Audrey please. Cepat sangat nak jalan dah kenapa. Ayah risau Lego ayah habis diambilnya bila dah start jalan. Nanti nak shoot Lego pun dah susah, kena nyorok - nyorok. Haha. Lego ayah tu untuk business purpose ye. Kalau nak, ayah beli lain. Haha.

One day, kalau Audrey dah besar, if you read this post somehow, know this that Ayah and Ibu, Love you soooooooooooooooo much ! You're the joy of life !

HERE COMES THE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES


© 2015 Hasif Rahman - Nobita and Doraemon | Childhood Memories


" Friendship keeps the bad day away "

- Hasif Rahman -


Pheww... Lama sudah tertinggal dua mainan ni gara - gara sibuk mengejar Lego Rare. Kini ada masa terluang untuk bersama Nobita dan Doraemon yang tersimpan rapi di dalam kotak masing - masing. Hee... Here comes again, Nobita and Doraemon, one of the best childhood memories. Membesar pada zaman cerita ini popular, sedikit sebanyak meninggalkan kenangan dalam hidup. Sampai sanggup ke sana ke mari untuk cari dua mainan ni yang sudah stop production. Tapi hari tu ada nampak lagi satu kotak Nobita. Thinking nak beli as for back up since yang ini selalu pakai untuk Toy Photography. Nama pun mainan, sampai satu masa rosak juga. Haha.

The best thing about this action figure, ada beberapa mimik muka yang boleh dipakai dan bentuk tangan. Next post saya akan tunjukkan.

THE COMPLICATED



" The time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be yourself "

- Douglas Coupland -


Well, sometimes when you're in the middle of complicated things, its better to sit down, relax and think about it slowly. No need to panic. No need to rush. Call your love ones. It should be ok. Sigh~ Its a sudden call for my job. Feeling a bit not ready for it actually. The job getting heavier and risky. Whether I'm afraid of it or I'm just in shock. Need to stop over thinking about it. Lets play some Lego. Can't wait to start my project soon ! Hey ho

SERAI AT EMPIRE

" Success without honor is an unseasoned dish; it will satisfy your hunger, but it won't taste good "

- Joe Paterno -


Its been a while I'm away from this blog. I'm a little bit busy to travel for now. But hey, I have time for my Lego Photography. Yes, you can visit my 2nd blog here at The Figaura. Its a blog totally about my Lego stuff. Feel free to follow it.

Back to the story. Last Saturday, my wife brought me and the family to dinner at Serai, Empire. This is the second time I ate at Serai. Well, to be honest, the food is tasty, and the service is good, but..its a bit expensive and the traffic kinda busy on the way to Empire. 

Well, a treat from my wife is always the best. She never made me disappointed. She's good at giving the best service from the day we met, till now. Thanks for the treat ! xoxo


A cup of Latte keeps the happy forever~

THE PAST



" Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future "

- John F. Kennedy -


Being a failure for couple of times really made my past haunt me somehow. Sometimes, even before you start something new, you'll think about all the negative things rather than the positive which cause me losing great opportunity to be successful. I have a lot of dreams, and I don't deny it, some of my dreams come true. Some of it I'm still waiting for the right time and another part of my dreams I need to totally forget about it. Its not that I give up, its just my condition is not suitable for it. But I believe that I'll get better dreams in times. 

Now, I'm happy with my new project as Lego Photographer. I'm really happy with it. Even I'm still new, I have invest quite a lot for it. Its all because I love it so much and my wife supports me. Still, somehow, that past, being a failure haunt me somehow when I think about people's perception even I did post something about it WHY BEING DIFFERENT.

I've been thinking about it for some time but recently my wife post me a picture which I think its kinda true to hold on to as per pic below :



Maybe it's time for me to focus on what's matter. Focus on my dreams. The start is always hard. Yes, I did say that. Cheer up, and lets do this ! 




THE WONDERLAND ONLINE BAGS FOR MEN



" People will stare. Make it worth their while "

- Harry Winston -


Keep calm and say, Arrrrrr...

Hey ho, guys, listen up. When it comes to man holding a woman's handbag, there will always be a war between The Gentleman group and The Awkward group. A war that never ends, as long as there are stars and the moon in the sky. But fear no more guys, now days men needs to carry their own bag everywhere they go. Sayonara girls, you need to carry your handbag by yourself, the gentlemen now days are busy with their stuff. Its cool for a man to carry a bag as a fashion. Its just the matter of choosing the right design to suit the purpose and where to get it ! I have a little secret about the place. Here it goes !

Welcome to the Fashion Wonderland so called the ZALORA ! An online shopping fashion store for man and woman. There is a wide range of choices from many brands. You just need to look, click, and pay, Zalora will settle the rest. 

Lets talk about bags !



First, come with me to online bags for men collection where you can take a ride to choose the exclusive bags to make you look great in the eyes of your dream girl, rawwrrrr. Take your time, there's nothing to rush. There's a lot of designs that you'll be amazed. While looking at it, there's a legend that I want to share with you. A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

There's a legend, told by a wise man, a man needs three types of bags that need to be purchase. There are :-
  1. For the active individual
  2. For the daily usage or short trips
  3. For the long vacation

1. For the active individual

Those who is active with sports, a sport bag is a must if you're the type of person who carries a lot of stuff with you such as sport shoes, water bottle, a change of clothes and sport gears. Come on guys, you have the looks, you wanna look cool in front the blonde girl, but you pack your stuff in a paper bag or even worse in a plastic bag? That's so not cool man. The force is strong with you. Spend a little bit at Zalora to make it worth their while. Sports bag is definitely a great investment. Store everything you need in the sports bag and start burning off those calories with no worries about your belongings.




2. For the daily usage or short trips

It was told that every man needs a nice backpack. Whether you're a student, a working man or a man who loves to walk around for a short trips, the bag is not meant to fill your belongings only, but it also serve as a fashion accessories to make you looks great and masculine. Backpacks are the suitable fashion item for men to own as it is a versatile bag to show off. There's a lot of trendy backpack designs available at Zalora from many brands. Check it out !



3. For the long vacation

Lastly, the wise man said, the bag that any men should have is a nice luggage bag. There are days when we have to fly off somewhere due to work or vacation. If you're attending a meeting and you need to somehow check in a hotel, you need to bring the professional looks too which the luggage bags at Zalora can give you that. You can choose the "balik kampung" style or the trolley luggage bag to suit your needs and preference.



Pheww.. that's a great legend told by the wise man. Now I really need those three bags for my usage. A sport bag, a backpack and a luggage. Its time to impress the blonde. Lets go to Zalora. No time to wait. Toodles

DARTH VADER : THE DARK SIDE


" The force is strong with this one "

- Darth Vader -


After about 3 weeks I bought this Lego Battle Figure : Darth Vader, today I have the time to open the box and build the bad ass Darth Vader. Play with some lighting, take a picture of it, and tadaa ! The Dark Side has returned. My personal review about the Lego, its awesome ! It looks cooler with Darth Vader than Obi Wan and Luke. Its about 30cm tall, and its easy to play with.

I grew up with Star Wars. Starts from Episode IV, V, VI and I, II, III. This year Episode VII will be coming soon. Talk about Star Wars, the characters that I love the most is Darth Vader and the Storm Troopers. Even they are at the Dark Side, they look interesting. Even lots of Lego Photographers prefer to use this two figure.

The new episode, Kylo Ren as the bad ass looks cool. But the Lego minifigure doesn't, for me at least. The only Star Wars Lego minifigure that looks cool enough at the moment is Captain Phasma. You gotta have it !

THE BETTER PATH ?




" I don't know what my path is yet. I'm just walking on it "

- Olivia Newton John -


Somehow, today I'm a lil bit happy with my life. A wife that fully supports your hobby is the greatest gift in the world. I'm really touched to see how she's really interested with my dreams in photography. Its something that I can't get it from a friend. It all happened last Thursday when my wife texted me and said, lets start a project with my Lego Photography. At first I thought she wanted me to print it into custom album or make it into printed canvas. I was like, nothing new I guess but I was totally wrong. She gave me a link to a certain website which I can't tell you about it right now, and I love it so much ! Its an opportunity for me to be the first with Lego Photography. I need to grab this opportunity. Its time for a new project. I need a long term planning. Start planning and make it happen ! There may be times where I stumbled, but that's not the end of it. I'll keep on walking till the day that I have something to be proud of. See ya later peeps !
