Haji Lane.

May 1, 2015 | places

It’s been a while since I unleashed myself into the wilderness of Singapore for the sole purpose of photography. I ended up in Hipster Paradise (also tourist paradise), Haji Lane.

This neighbourhood is all about the cafes and quaint little boutiques. Unfortunately though, on this particular occasion, I did not have a cuppa nor did I purchase anything. I did nose around a shop or two though.

The crowd this afternoon seemed fairly tame for a public holiday. Not that I would know what the usual would be like on weekends. It’s only the second time I’ve been there.

Exploring the city really reminded me how much I miss taking street photos. And how much I’ve been under-utilising the GR.

Viseu, so difficult to get to.

I happened to visit Viseu some time back for the purpose of running an errand. Little did I know that my journey that began at 7am in the morning would finally end at 11.30am in the afternoon. Oh. My. Word. Viseu is smack in the middle of the northern half of Portugal...

My love affair with Japan, almost 6 years on.

    I was browsing through my catalog of photographs and stumbled upon my old photos from Japan. I'd taken two trips there in total. Once in December 2011 and another in March 2012, only a few months later. Visiting (and perhaps even living!) in Japan had been one of...

LXFactory and true friends.

There are times when you go through difficult situations in life and nobody quite understands. While there are people who have gone through the same thing that you have, you are unique and your perspective is different. So it was with me the past few months. I was...
