1. Stay With Me

    Preparing for another league of work travels starting tomorrow. This time it will be Singapore, Penang and then Jogyakarta, Indonesia. 

    Can’t wait to go back *home. 

    *first home will always be Penang where my family is, followed by Singapore - the best and the MOST expensive city in the world. But once you visited or lived in, you will know how amazing this place is. 

     
  2. Brisbane City Hall

    I did a quick tour of the building this morning and man, just look at the light. Because it’s a guided tour, I can’t really sway away from the group and do my thing.  Rest assured, I will be back one of these days and take in all the beautiful light. 

     
  3. Pure Shore - A Continuation

    This magazine has been a great source of inspiration lately. 

    Rich in content with interesting cover stories and beautiful minimalistic photos in every issue. I brought the latest issue of Cereal together with me to Noosa and I’ve been trying to keep the same approach in all my photos - simple and clean.  

     
  4. Shadows & Silhouette

    “Of all the means of expression, photography is the only one that fixes a precise moment in time.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson 

    4pm, Edward Street, Brisbane - today. 

     
  5. Front & Back

    I almost forgot how much joy holding it again and the freedom I have to shoot anything I want while being discreet. 

    And most importantly, being inspired again to do black and white photography - something I’ve lost over the past 10 months. 

    You can easily spot a Leica shot. Easily. 

     
  6. The Art of Falling Asleep

    It finally rained and what better way to stay at home and sleep..

     
  7. Spread some love

    Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone! 

     
  8. By the pier

    The stretch of street lamp from the previous post.

    Thank you Luxlit for reblogging it! 

     
  9. Up All Night

    This shot has got to be my favorite shot I took in 2013. It was a stretch of street lamp just next to the Singapore Flyer and shot using my Leica. 

    I miss my Leica and I’ve had some of the greatest adventures with it. Sadly, there’s some sensor problem and it has since retired. 

    In 2014, I want to create more masterpieces like this. I want to put more thoughts in my composition, in my subject and overall story I want to convey. 

     
  10. Passing by the museum

    I always felt that the Singapore National Museum lacks of artifacts and content as compared to other museums internationally. Afterall, Singapore gained independence from Malaysia in 1965 so that makes it 49 years old this year which is considered a young nation comparing to countries like China or India. However, history aside, the building itself is the pride of the nation. It is beautiful and something to marvel at anytime of the day.  

    Ever since coming and based here in the island republic, I’ve visited the National Museum many times - may it be seasonal exhibition or talks by prominent writers or artists or just a weekend photowalk in the museum with friends.

    The photos above were taken during one of my walks to the train station post-dinner one night. The lights that illuminated the whole museum definitely stood out among all other buildings around the area. The post processing of “B1” vsco filter adds a rich black and white tone to the photos giving it a timeless, classic look just like the museum.

    your future in my dreams

    a palm reader caught having a siesta by the road side.

    I’m heading back to KL next week for work and I am extremely excited. 

    I miss my friends, the familiar places i once walk with my trusty leica on weekends (like the pic above) and of course visiting all my favorite food joint. The schedule will be pack (with work) and i will try to steal some time out to see the changes to the place i once call home.
