就是我啦 · It‘s Me

My photo

家在砂拉越,人在槟城。一名热爱自由,热爱探索的小伙子。不想被工作绑死的他立志成为一名流浪汉。随心所欲,自由自在,四处游荡的活着是他的生活方式。摄影是他的爱好,相机是他的伙伴,双脚是他的交通。他把生活上值得记录的小小故事拍摄下来,通过「我的故摄生活」与大家分享。这,就是我的故事,我的摄影,我的生活!

Born in Sarawak but live in Penang. A guy who love freedom, exploring and photography. A wanderer he is and he is still jobless. Just follow his heart and do whatever he want is his way of living. With just a camera and his two legs, he wrote his story via blog. This is his story, "My Life Via Lens". This is my story.
