I have always wanted to shoot a photo of a galloping horse. My opportunity came on Sunday, Feb 16, 2014. Zahra' has completed her riding and we were waiting for her father to fetch us. While waiting, I saw this beautiful white horse galloping around the paddock. Not to miss the chance, I started snapping away. At the end of the exercise, I asked the young boys who were training him, the horse's name. First time I hear a horse with a local name - RAIHAN.
Here are some of the photos of Raihan.

He was a little curious when he saw me pointing the camera
at him. He slowed down and stopped galloping

He changed direction

The girls just couldn't resist stroking him. This is Zahra' and her friend, Intan

Our Beautiful World Week 33 - Derelict

Every time we drove to Tanjung Malim for breakfast (when we visit my in-laws), I love to see this mansion. I imagined that in it's heydays, it must have been the most beautiful mansion housing fine porcelain, teak furniture, well-dressed madams, and maids running around when summoned. Better still, there could have been parties, dinners and many many celebrations to boot. Only the wealthy Chinese traders or British planters could have owned this mansion. Or it could have housed the Principal of the "Maktab Perguruan Sultan Idris" (Sultan Idris Teacher's Training College) then. Today, it stood abandoned with nothing but memories hidden behind those walls and waiting to be closed down for good.
This photo was taken in 2012 and it is very much treasured. Should the building be demolished, at least I have something to remember me by and I am sharing this for Week 33 challenge.

PS: This photo was featured for the week at our Beautiful world:
Thanks for linking up with us last week, we had some wonderful interpretation of the word "derelict".
Ros would like to showcase this one from Lili Sulastri, she lives in Malaysia. Awesome!!!!
