Thank You....

The overwhelming response from the number of hits on my blog has been very encouraging as a result from an article on my passion for photography published in The Star dated 20th April 2009

I would like to thank the Star for providing me the opportunity and avenue in expressing my hobby and sharing my passion. To Ms Pek Yee and Boon Tatt- thank you for your patience and time to interview me and to the feature that was done.

To All those who have surfed my blog, terima kasih and your comments have given me such encouragement and motivation that I will continue to pursue this new found interest with greater  enthusiasm.

In the past while holding public office and engaging myself actively in politics, I do not know how to appreciate nature, and more so looking at the landscaping of what God has created. The many holiday trips were planned more for getting away from the hustle and bustle of life as a public figure.

With the time on my side, I can now doing things that I love to do. Reading and catching up with old acquaintances, and indulging myself with photography have truly enriched my life. Appreciating nature is such a beautiful experience and with the new network of friends of the same interest has given me a new dimension in my lifestyle.

With this blog of mine, I hope to share the images that I have taken on my shooting trips. A picture speaks a thousand words and the angle taken is also an expression through the lenses.

As an amateur in photography, your comments are valuable to me as it will take me to a higher level as I walk through this journey of my new love.

假如我是吉打民青团长陈庆亮,我这几天会掩嘴偷偷笑,日子也会过得很充实,和我跟进跟出的同志们一定个个脸上都有光,我只不过向选举委员会提出一点小建议,党内党外都纷纷给回应,好像我的建议已经快要被选委会接纳那样。
阿亮虽然是去年才任民青团长,锋芒可不小噢,他才赢得团长不久就宣布打总团长,跟林敬益的公子林时彬,还有一个我忘记叫什么名字的对手一起“拗手瓜”,当然,阿亮输了。
不过,听说竞选期间他的文告不断、动作多多,竟给他带来意外之财,听说他律师楼的生意有增加,不懂是拜报章宣传所赐?还是这么巧这么妙的人家都在这个时候上门找他帮忙处理文件。
说真的,利用意外之财是有点过份,而且,跟律师讲话怎样还是要小心点好。阿亮,不要起诉我噢,我也是听说的啦。政治上有很多都是听说的,但是,有没有人在听说之后把它写出来的,我也不是很懂。
阿亮可说是创意十足,不要看他是“红毛仔”,作为一个政坛新雀,他确确实实有提出不少好建议,文告几乎是每隔2个星期或最迟1个月就会出现1次。就算是没有文告,也会有记者会或新闻发布会。
你看,人家做事多用心,现在有很多人很喜欢通过报章发文告,民政党有陈恩来、陈维奂、陈嘉亮,当然还有我们的阿亮。马华也有翁协文和陈显裕啊,发文告有个好处就是可以给很多人记忆复新,看到照片看到文告就会想起那个人。
只是我也希望诸位仁兄不要爽就发不爽也发文告,上面所提到的,除了陈显裕我不认识之外,其他都有数面之缘,我可不要你们个个成了光说不练的文告天王。还好我不是阿亮,我是阿强。
