We were pleasantly surprised by the food here at the Chinese restaurant of Hong Kong Club – great Peking duck and BBQ roasts along with dimsum dishes. Our friends invited us over for weekend brunch at the Hong Kong club. Country clubs used to be a middle class thing in Singapore while we were growing […]

Look up. View lying on my terrace. Banyan tree roots are always magical to look at. My second Amaryllis bulb starting to grow. World’s youngest three Michelin starred guest chef chef Max Alajmo of La Calandre served up some amazing dishes at Otto e Mezzo Hong Kong. Beet root sorbet in his saffron risotto with […]

Tried to capture the reflection of magic hour glow on the ICC building, but lacking mastery, turned out as a golden blob. Took this photo in pretty poorly lit conditions with the 50mm lens, and rested the camera on the floor to keep really still. Love this photo of Smudge and didn’t want to edit […]

The large park right on the harbour at Sun Yat Seng memorial. I used to run along here when I lived in Hong Kong 5 years ago, closer to my old neighbourhood. So much lush greenery not far from central and people picnicking on a week day. I love sunshine creeping through the crown of […]

I didn’t think finding beauty in daily life would become a commitment and I am trying to focus on one thing and doing everything better and being present. Here’s St John’s Cathedral right on Garden Road. Lots of nature themed photos this […]

It’s a simple hole in the wall in Causeway Bay and you climb up some greasy stairs […]

I bought a new 50mm lens for my Canon D1200, also known as the “nifty 50” and portrait lens. I hesitated getting one because I wanted to first get to know my basic kit lens and camera, but I gave in to temptation. The effects are remarkably different. Can you spot the bee? I used […]

Lots of food photos as it’s been a little hectic and stressful this past week and I forgot to stop daily to look at the beauty in daily life. None of these photos have been retouched as I’d like to track the process and journey of evolving and getting to know my camera and light. […]

Slightly late on this one, had friends visiting and working on a few projects lately, including sewing, which takes up alot of my mindful meditation time in full focus. Some days, I also struggle to find something to photography everyday, which forces me to look deeper and harder to find beauty in everything and every day […]
