Mee Mee Tailor - by Damak Digital

Mr Lau is 76 years old. At this age, his eye sight is worsening thus he couldn’t do much sewing.

He came from Tanjung Malim, Perak and started his journey in tailoring business in Sekinchan as an apprentice at a small tailor shop.

At the age of 30, he migrated to Batu 9, Hulu Langat and started his own tailor shop and he’s been running the show ever since.
He commences business at 7 am and close at 4pm depending on his health. Nowadays, an income of RM250-350 in a month is something to celebrate.

Comes 2009, this whole stretch of old shop houses will be demolished in order to cater for the widening of a nearby road, which currently cannot support the flow of the increasing traffic.

Sadly, when the time arrives for the government to take over this property, Mr Lau has nothing in plan. Simply because he is just too tired to continue his business and furthermore, none of his children are interested to inherit the legacy which he has painstakingly crafted.

ChAPs First Exhibition - Invitation for Hari Skrin UiTM Puncak Perdana

Chap Ayam received an invitation from Fakulti Teknologi Kreatif & Artistik , Kampus Puncak Perdana, to do a mini exhibition for their "Hari Skrin" yesterday. We have less than 10 days to prepare so only selected members were called to prepare for the invitation and they managed to stage a decent exhibition...and bring the "Chap Ayam Photographers" name up a notch. Thank you to all and for the members those who did not make it, no worries, ChAPs will have another exhibition (and more insyaAllah) - so, check your mail frequently lah OK!

Here's some short write-up for the exhibition yesterday:
Members Involved:
-Rahman Roslan: Myanmar Refugee
-Ted Adnan Asmadi: Commercial works
- Jidin: Forgotten Faces
- Zayd: Thaipusam
- Ian Ahad: Klang, Di Sebalik Wajah
- Shamshahrin: Bajau Laut & some features
- Torque: The Streets of Malaysia

With less than 10 days to prepare, we worked closely around the clock and started selecting the photos and print them individually on A3 size art paper. Ian & Torque went shopping for the frames and whatchamacallit...to cut a long & tiring story short - everything was done and completed, ready in Ian's car to be sent to the location by 3am, the morning of the exhibition. By 1030am on the 9 April, everything single piece was on display.
The crowd came in a steady flow - surprisingly the first batch were the lecturers, professors of the faculty (Yeah...we felt like as if we were submitting our final group assignment for final semester!). They were impressed and actually did ask for prices of some of the works....and look forward to the next exhibition ChAPs is going to stage. Students of the faculty were interested with the works on display and we had good conversations and interactions with some of them.
We thought we'd call it a day at 5pm but the organizer asked us to stay on and join the VIP for award giving ceremony & dinner, after which we had to pack all the stuff in and finally call it a day. In short, it was an interesting experience - for the first timers! - and to have our works displayed together with the best in Malaysia/ World.....is a massive reward already. Alhamdulillah.
Though we had to sacrifice hours (which may count up to days!) of sleep, it was worth it....KUDOS ChAPs!

Thank you to the committee members/ crew of the Hari Skrin 2008 Fakulti Teknologi Kreatif & Artistik UiTM Kampus Puncak Perdana, the lecturers, faculty members, students and everybody who has made possible this first exhibition by ChAPs, an event to be remembered. Thank you all!

One of the common questions asked by the professors & students - "Why Chap Ayam?"
