  1. Day Dream

    09 Mar 2017

    Untitled, Dreamscape The sky isn’t blue, the shadow isn’t black, and no one was around. The dream didn’t come at night during my sleep; it just comes out of nowhere as I stared at the wall in my office cubicle. An idea came, I go through my archives, toggle a…


  2. A New Facelift

    01 Mar 2017

    New home page for my website The advantage of using Format.com is the ability to make changes as and when you like. When I decided to have a new fresh look on my website last night, a few clicks and adjustment later, everything is almost done. The hardest part is…

    07 Jan 2017

    Summer in Melbourne 2017 It has been a week since I deactivated my Facebook account, so how did it go? Well, it’s still too early to tell, but I reckon it should go well. I have also deleted the Facebook app on my phone so I wouldn’t click on it…


  8. Hello 2017

    01 Jan 2017

    Jurong West, Singapore 2016 Like many said, 2016 wasn’t a good year, probably too much negativity happened around us. But I’m not going to judge 2016 by what happened, we all know we can’t control that part of life. I reckon what we didn’t do in 2016 should be a…

  11. The Waiting Game

    17 Oct 2016

    Etihad Stadium, Melbourne 2015 “How long do you wait at a particular spot for a shot?” One of the questions I got asked a lot. There is no direct answer to this issue, and it also depends on how hungry you are to get the shot. But there are a…

    South Melbourne, 2016 No, this is not a blog post about my favourite football club, Liverpool FC, it’s just how I like my photo walks to be at times. Many had asked me about my preference, in a group or alone; I always answered the latter. I could spend the…


  15. Less Is More

    12 Sep 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2015 The lesser you carry, the further you walk When I first started street photography, all I need was my iPhone and Power Bank to charge up my phone. There was no additional lens, a second camera body or a tripod, and travelling light was essential. The lesser…

  20. The Unusual Protest

    24 Jul 2016

    Appealing for peace in South China Sea Before I go further, I have mentioned in my previous blog post that I try to only discuss photography related issue in my blog, but rules are meant to be broken right? However, don’t expect great political views in this blog (and maybe more) from…

  22. Photographing Singapore

    23 Jun 2016

    Chinatown, Singapore Beside visiting my dad in hospital, spending time with family and catching up with friends, the most exciting part of my trip has to be photography.
