This was a project I started to make since October 2017. It is a kopitiam at Lorong Panggung, Kuala Lumpur. (Fyi, kopitiam = coffee shop in Malaysia) Since it is for my personal collection, it was kinda slow in progress. However, it was sad to hear that this 60 years old shop was forced to closed down May of this year.
Coincidentally, Atlas Obscura and the filmmaker approached me at this time to make a video for that. It's such a good timing, I'm sure it will be a precious documentary for all of us, recording both real and miniature ver. of the kopitiam.
Million thanks to the videographer Lucas Veuve for this wonderful video. We have spent so many days to film at both of my studio and Ho Kow kopitiam. I saw his earnest and effort for his job that I rarely see from the others, let's see how amazing the outcome is!
In conjunction with the launching of movie Ant-Man and the Wasp, we're grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with SAYS and Marvel to shoot a series of photographs of Ant Man in my miniature kitchen and provision shop.for advertising in SAYS' social media.
