I was in Batu Pahat over last Sunday for the wedding shoot of Syed Najmee & Izian. The drive there was otherwise smooth if not for some GENIUS who picked a long-weekend to repair the road. Senior photographer Jeff and I driving within SPEED LIMIT, reached Batu Pahat in 4 hours (normally 3.5max). Later we found out some guests took 8 hours to arrive (HORROR!!!).
the pensive bride
Many thanks to the bride & groom who has made sure that all our comfort was met by putting us up at the first (if not only) 4 star hotel The Katerina ?In Batu Pahat The hotel looks really good especially all the functions/ballroom (which share the same name with the Mandarin Oriental KL ballroom).However the hotel has a few kiasu/cost cutting practices like having nice chandelier but not turning it on?????
this is NOT Halim!!!
Apart from the great images that we came back with and the great hospitality of the bride/grooms? family , the the BIGGEST reward for us both was the HALIM Cendol. In my opinion, I NEVER had a better CENDOL in my life!!!!
I am definitely looking forward to returning to Batu Pahat this December for the wedding of Suresh and Sharon!
