Dinner Gathering with my cousins

We had a sumputious and delicious buffet dinner at this restaurant called Straits Cafe @ Hotel Rendezvous. Great to catch up with all and have a good hearty dinner, especially my nieces Charmaine and Charlene. Some of the food was lovely, I just loved sashimi salmon and smoked salmon, they do have nice cakes, pastries and desserts. Didn’t took a lot of photos but there were a few nice photos for memories. Hope you all enjoyed it !

Team Retreat @ Bintan Lagoon Resort Day 3

Day 3 Time to go back to Singapore, feeling tired from the late night World Cup Semi-Final between Germany and Italy. Had a quick breakfast, wash up and pack up, before heading to the hotel lobby for check out. After dropping off our luggages in the storage room, we started walking around to explore the resort. Walking towards the beach, it was a very beautiful afternoon, clear blue sky, white sandy beach and the awesome sea. I love the beach and resort lifestyle, influenced during my uni days in Queensland, Australia, whereby I visit Gold Coast, one of the best …

Night Photoshoot @ Esplanade

After having a great time at Edwin’s Smile Arts Dental Studio Grand Opening Ceremony, we went out and had dinner and shopping at Marina Square. During dinner, took some photos of Singapore CBD skyline from the Marina Food Loft. I felt it was really a great idea to eat along the balcony, facing the Esplanade and CBD, especially in the evening, whereby the landscape was really beautiful. Walked over to the Esplanade and went up to the roof terrace. It was a really nice and beautiful view from there. I didn’t bring my tripod and I had to improvise on …

Inspirations, Thoughts, Still Searching ….

During this period of time, I was searching for many things in my life, looking for aspirations, thoughts and what I really wanted to achieve in my career and how I want to approach my photojournalism. It was a strong reflective time, something people can’t read and understand it from my words. However, by reading my writing, it could provide some answers to the puzzles I set (Da Vinci Code is my inspiration, intriguing, searching for the …..?). As for photojournalism, I am making and refining my blog towards a leisure and travel lifestyle online log through the eyes and …
