  1. Hi koh. All this time i thought ur from West malaysia, while in fact ur actually a Sarawakian. What a small world πŸ™‚

  2. Wow!
    didnt know that you’re a sarawakian until today..
    Glad to know there are fellow Christians who are really on fire for God!

  3. Strange… I graduated in the same year under Aero, and I know the Marine guys quite well since starting in 1994, considering our numbers are so few (in terms of Chinese ethnic)… Oh dear, perhaps I wasn’t that close to Marine after all….

  4. Hi Renise [rei_r3i],

    Thank you for the complement. Thank you for visiting my blog. I am not a pro blogger, the theme is designed by someone else (Vistered Little Theme) and I am just blogging things about my life…

    I have visited your blogs and they are very nicely designed too!

  5. You are from Sarawak?! Cool. My wife is Sarawak resident too. Her hometown is Bintangor. Btw, your blog look nice ^^

  6. Trusted Malaysian B2C web that I ever surf…..Thanks you for your service.

  7. Hi there! My name is Anson Ong and I currently reside in Petaling Jaya, Selangor (although I was born and bred in Sitiawan, Perak which is CONSIDERABLY near Kampung Jering where the ShaShinKi biz operates, right??) Keep up the GREAT and AWESOME work in photography propaganda and NOT forgetting, testifying about the GOODNESS, GRACE and MERCY of our Lord Jesus Christ – way to go, Kho King!

  8. Pray for my son, please. He’s only 8 years old, he is sick and it will take 6 years or even more time to recover his health. My heart is broken and I cry all the day, blame myself, and always feel a picture that I take his hand walk with difficulty…, I don’t know where to go but I have to keep on walking…… Please pray for my son. Thanks.

  13. i thought this was an on-line photo store not a platform for religious dogma. i mean come on do you really think people want to be quoted scripture on your homepage or for that matter anywhere on your site? i’ll tell you, i don’t. what a turn-off. i won’t buy anything here afterall. thanks but no thanks.

  14. Dear Perry,

    Thanks for the comment and feedback.

    I am a Christian and ShaShinKi is a blessing from Jesus Christ, and I want to witness to God for the blessing He gives me.

    (In Malaysia, people put scriptures in their stores – mamak store, and some pray to their gods in their store as well. Mine is just in different way – online store.)

  19. Hi Dr.Koh
    I just happened to visit your blog while searching for Canon EOS 1000D for my son. I myself am a Mechanical engineer and Christian and am from India. I saw the Bible verse and a comment about it. I really appreciate your decision and boldness to acknowldege Jesus and proclaim it publically. Keep it up.
    I will be visiting your site to read more about cameras and feedbacks from camera users.

  20. Hi
    Am browsing thru the blogs for the first time – actually stumbled upon it from Shashinki mailouts.
    As a fellow believer in the Living Lord Jesus Christ, I am encouraged by your witness for Him.
    Rom 1:16,17 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.
    For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: β€œThe righteous will live by faith.”. – God’s blessings

  21. 1st time drop by…
    Never know Shashikin owner persuade the same subject with me. Nice to know you…

  22. Dr,
    ive jz recently discovered ur online shop and blog and im truly impressed…
    especially with your boldness in proclaiming your faith… and of course the many positive feedback from buyers…
    May God bless you, your work and your family…
    Truly an inspiration… =p

    Deuteronomy 31:6
    Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.
    (NKJV)

  23. I was looking for camera accessories and was very pleasantly surprised instead to find a website that opens with John 3:16 which has been the main guiding verse for me, and I’m sure, all other believers. Bless You.

  24. Hi Dr Koh, am equally surprise you r a Sarawakian n a Christian. I m the guy who enquire twice about the Canon 70-200mm latest len. Nice knowing u:)

  25. Hello Dr Koh, I bought Nikon 600mm f4 VR last year. I believe the warranty is still on and I like to bring it to Singapore Nikon for calibration with my D3S. And I need a letter from you to proof that I bough the product, can you send me the letter via email soon. Tks.

  26. I’m Michael from Trinity Methodist Church,Kuching. Recently bought 7D from you. I was speechless after reading ur blog…very shocked to know:
    a> you are so young
    b> you are from Sibu, same hometown as me.
    c> Lydia is your wife ( btw, very cute daughter)
    Anyway, I think it’s God’s blessing for me to know you. If you happen to stop by Kuching, give a call and I will pick u up for laksa.

  27. so appreciate you have a happy family and a successful career .
    it’s really a good idea of your website .
