Thanks to Ben Ong for capturing our “last” meeting at the Father’s House in BLC Mooncake Festival… and the RAW difference.
I echo Ben’s final words . “Farewell, The Father’s House, for now. We will see you again!”

It’s not every day that a church hosts a Mooncake Festival celebration service. And especially since it would also be the last service at BLC’s premises in Bangsar before the renovation, I decided I would be there, having missed the last Sunday service the weekend before.
No lengthy reflections on the festival, or the service, or anything. Just pictures this time around.
Come to think of it, we really can get lost even in urban jungles, no? There are no tigers to maul us or rivers to drown us, but it’s so easy to lose one’s soul; to lose, not our path on the trail, but our direction in life.
So it really was something to gather around a fire in the middle of the jungle.
Esther was there that night, too.
You can do this with Photoshop, but it’s so much easier (not to mention more fun) playing with the light itself!
It remains, for me, a commissioning cross of sorts, for there has been no day when BLC’s theme verse, "As the Father has sent Me, I send you," rang truer.
So on Mooncake night, I set the camera for a 30-second exposure, ran outside like there was no tomorrow, and fired multiple bursts of light from my flash unit through the window.
Farewell, The Father’s House, for now.
We will see you again!
