Location scouting at Kuala Selangor

Ming Jin and I went location scouting yesterday at Kuala Selangor for my new short film (the untitled part 2 of my 'BAD MOMMA TRILOGY' that started with CHICKEN RICE MYSTERY).

It was my first time at Kuala Selangor, and I got to see some of the locations where THE ELEPHANT AND THE SEA was shot. But I myself managed to find a couple of really interesting places for tomorrow's shoot.

I thought the moss-covered river looks pretty interesting. But I don't have a scene for that though.

This tiny creek is behind a wooden Malay house. We went to ask the kind woman for permission to shoot at her place, both outside and inside, and she was more than welcome.

The shoot's tomorrow. I'm excited. Still haven't found a title for my new film though. But it's inspired by Yasunari Kawabata's short story 'LOVE SUICIDES'.
