History made in Historical Penang

I was on MATTA Fair (Malaysian Association of Tour & Travel Agents) in Penang on 19-21 April 2013. Just few weeks ago, i made silly move by asking Matt Brandon whether we could meet for a cup of coffee somewhere in Penang, and i would be the happiest man on earth if we can go out and shoot. For those new to this name,  i have mentioned about his great inspirational podcasts “The Depth Of Field” in this blog (click here to view). He promoted Penang by conducting photography workshop during Thaipusam, a Hindu festival. His latest workshop was conducted in Rajastan, India. For more info about his on going photography workshop click here. Anyway, i get positive reply from him and we met at this World Heritage Site of Penang. Like buying 1 and get another 1 for free, a gifted photographer & videographer, Nathan Watkins joined us too during that historical meeting.

We headed to The Goddes of Mercy Temple located on Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling as suggested by Matt Brandon before i showed him the list of question during our coffee session at Toh Soon Cafe.

I’m so glad to meet both of them. I have learned that to make the very first move and not worried being rejected are the keys to meet these great people.
