Teochew Hand Made Sotong Balls Pork Balls Mixed Soup 麥士威83号

It was back in July on Desmond’s off day that we arranged to go shoot SG50 Golden Jubilee Fireworks Rehearsal. By the time we reached our destination, Jubilee Bridge was a sea of people! All the photographer’s sweet spots were already taken by fanatics who’d camp-out as early as before noon so Desmond and I … Continue reading

Light Trail Time Lapse At Marina Coastal Expressway

I am having trouble uploading new photos on Flickr (that’s where I link my blog’s photos) the whole of yesterday but here’s something I would like to share with you – my light trails photos taken last Saturday, compiled into a time lapse video. I think my tripod moved as I could see one of … Continue reading

Pulau Ubin – The Legend of An Elephant, A Frog And A Pig!

Three animals from Singapore challenged each other to a race to reach the shores of Johor, Malaysia, with the unsuccessful animal turning into stone. All three animals faced many difficulties and failed. The elephant and pig together turned into Pulau Ubin whilst the frog became Pulau Sekudu or Frog Island. Thus born the legend of … Continue reading

Starry Nights Are Georges!

Like every child, I once wished upon a star. Okay, okay many times! 😉 Yes, I had wished for a knight in shining armour until I saw the movie The Shining, but star gazing has never left me. I am in awe of God’s greatness whenever I look up at the sky. The planets, stars, … Continue reading

Birds Of Different Feathers – Part 4

Birding seemed to be in fashion for the past few weeks even among the noob birders because we had several charming visitors! The spotted wood owls, the sunbirds and… Pin-tailed Whydahs are not endemic to Singapore and thus a big hooha arose when they were discovered in Pulau Punggol Barat. What’s even better is that … Continue reading

Birds Of Different Feathers – Part 3

The Sunbirds are in town and there’s a baby involved! This was my 3rd session of birding within a week and I had a great time progressing from the spotted wood owls to the laced woodpeckers and now sunbirds! It was not easy shooting these extremely lively little birds but lucky me, I made new … Continue reading

Birds Of Different Feathers – Part 1

The most recent photography craze I got into was birding. It is a very challenging genre in photography. As Evp David, a macro kaki, puts it: “Birding is another skill set in photography Semi Han, endurance and patience are Key…” Both which I lack! But for me, it was the company that counted in outings … Continue reading

Mas Bowoo Near Mall Malioboro In Yogyakarta

Almost all our lunch were consumed in the bus in between journeys to the different locations for our photography sessions. This was the second trip (first experience was *Bromo) I had food served this way. The experience was similar to eating on flight sans the tray table on the back of seats, our bags or … Continue reading

Pantai Glagah – Glagah Beach (Yogyakarta)

Our second and third day’s itinerary were modified a little so instead of going to Goa Jomblang, we headed for Pantai Glagah for sunset. This was to be my nightmare for I hurt myself and couldn’t go to the cave which on hindsight, turned out to be the highlight of this photpgraphy trip since we … Continue reading
