Deconstructing Suhaimi Fadzir - Acclaimed Contemporary Artist

Ramadan Bazaar Delights ~ Kampung Baru!

Yes, it's that time of year again when Malaysia seems to quieten down and pause for a slow and restful month.   When those who fast take a deep breath to internally reflect during the holy month of Ramadan.
