My friend Mita recommended me this book and it was a great read. I didn’t know much about Dr Oliver Sacks until I was having a conversation with a friend who is a prof in neuroscience and another neurosurgeon friend. I was also recommended to watch the movie “The Awakening”, which I haven’t had a […]

I think daily posts are tedious, so I’m rounding up weekly posts. :) I don’t know if I am improving at this, but I think as with every new skill, it’s a work in progress. I am getting the hang of shutter speed and aperture, hopefully it’d get easier and become more of an autopilot […]

I decided not to cheat and edit any of the photos as it’s an exercise to compare 365 days of photos and how much better I get at knowing my camera’s manual settings. Here’s mini fish burgers at Bangkok’s Sühring twins restaurant. Very delicious and I did the photos quickly but mindfully, in an attempt […]

I was inspired by the Digital photography blog post on first steps to improve your photography is to make the effort to take a photo a day and stock take with this 365 days photography. Well, here’s day one. I think limiting oneself to a photo a day makes one more mindful of what moment […]

I made a note to read this book by Lauren Collins as I continue to learn how to navigate my intercultural marriage with a French man. The book is somewhat interesting, anecdotal and also a discourse in linguistics in some chapters (which I found rather dry and difficult to get through). The flow of the narrative […]

This was a random book I pulled out from the library and a fun read. A short existential love story with a literature professor as the protagonist, referencing and alluding situations to all of my favourite authors and literary pieces during my angsty late teenage years and through university from Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther […]
