East Coast, Peninsular Malaysia

My camera was not happy with the big red X that crossed a camera on a signboard. This happened outside the entrance to Terengganu State Museum. It then urged me to shoot more, and more, on the coastline. And it found me a grasshopper at Pantai Kemasik (Kemasik Beach).

I wonder whether this grasshopper had taken a ride from Cerok Tokun. But that should not be right, as I saw no grasshopper hopping around me inside my car, or it might have slept all the time due to dizziness. Everything outside the windows slid backwards at accelerating speeds. It should have not experienced this before.


By the way, the grasshopper was so interested to check me by my foot prints, while many know me through my words.

And many others judge people by their appearance, but Buddha said the human body is a skin-bag full of filth. What could possibly be attractive about that?


My camera found me little crabs. They drew textures that looked like creations of aliens. They were, of course, not though the textures looked like crop circles.

Otherwise, we are aliens too for many reasons. We are often big-headed, as big as the head of an alien, if to mention one.

And my camera continued to guide me through.....

cute little crab- his perspective is so different from yours. If only he could see the beauty he created, while he was only looking for lunch.

Grasshopper has taken a teleportation all the way from Cerok Tokun to Kemasik Beach following your foot steps. A lovely crabby crop circles.

So very detailed and amazing shots, Rainfield. I love the way you let your camera lead you. It is always right :) That grasshopper is kinda cute.

Great photos! Did you get down on the sand to take those shots?? Ha! Those little crabs make very interesting designs. Beautiful header photo!!

What a lovely post! I love grasshoppers and I appreciated the crab circles and the little crab in your second to last photo.

I also dislike it when people don't let me take photos at places. Surely they will noticed increased business if we blog about these places?

I love the crabby circles and the neat shot of the grasshopper. You do find some of the most interesting thing to photograph. Wonderful photos from your trip.

That is a beautiful image..sorry you couldn't take photos inside though. Well this was a good experience and you'll have lots of memories..that will start to fade (lol). I liked the crab circles (good to zoom in a little) and this grasshopper looks almost as charming as the green one next door. Buddha had a point and maybe when we're young we pay more attention to appearances?

That's very good art from the crab!
