So what’s this whole mystery about shooting at a graveyard?
Well, last month myself, eleanorrigby236 & JK were really bored and had no idea on where to go for our next photowalk. Then JK was suddenly struck with inspiration, recalled a friend telling him about a hidden mausoleum with a life sized bronze statue smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur.
After much trepidation, we decided to head down to the place (despite cancelling our plans earlier to shoot at that abandoned house —see here & here; because a friend caught an “entity” on film the last time we went there) to try our luck, lol.
Anyway, it turned out the huge mausoleum belonged to the late Wong Loke Yew (1845-1917) who was a famous businessman & philanthropist at the time. You can read more about him here.
Anyway, the kids who led us to the graveyard warned us to be careful as the week prior to our visit, a boy had wandered off to the place and saw a mysterious “being” squatting on top of Loke Yew’s head. And so the boy went mental, hysterical etc etc…
But we were only there to shoot photos and not desecrate the place and we were very nice and polite (we even “asked” his permission to shoot and thanked him before we left!), lol. Anyway the next time we’re heading there, we’ll be bringing some offerings for him and his “guardians”..heheh. Well, on to the photos!
