Photographer's Note

I guess I'm just as much as anyone with a thing about sunset. Something about sunset which evokes a kind of peaceful and melancholic emotion in all of us, regardless of race, religion and creed.

In the city where I live, Kota Kinabalu, we have a beach called Tanjung Aru. In English, probably it means Cape Aru, which doesn't sound good. I guess when it comes to name, better keep it native.

Tanjung Aru is about 20 minutes drive from KK (promounced Kay Kay), short form of Kota Kinabalu. On this beach, it has food courts with a view of the beach, and definitely sunset. You could sit down and enjoy that "teh tarik" while watching the sun goes down, throwing tantrums with purple, red and yellow into the horizon. One day, I would show you a picture of a drink maker, whipping tea with milk. After all the whippings, you would have a glass of warm frothy delicious tea.

Nobody on the road
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone...
