Many Malaysian food stalls serve fruit juice in mugs similar in size to the mass krug or siedel used during Ocktoberfest. They are 1 litre or 34 ounce glasses. Some stalls even have gallon glasses for customers with a bladder of the camel. While some German Octoberfest waitresses can carry 6 mugs of beer in each hand, here Carmen struggles with a single watermelon drink.

Photography Tip: Push your wide angle lens close to the subject (the mug, in this case) to exaggerate size. Take advantage of a wide angle lens’ characteristic perspective distortion and deep depth-of-field for a dramatic or fun effect. Contrary to popular belief, the wide angle lens is not just for stepping further and taking everything in. It shines when you dare stick it close.
