Snorkelling at Lang Tengah Island

The resorts in Lang Tengah Island offer activities like snorkeling and diving. The sea waters surrounding the island are abundant with coral and small fishes.

Lang Tengah Island is barely patronized by people compared to the neighbouring Redang Island and Perhentian Island. There are no roads on the island to help you get around in this small island – you have to either take a speedboat, hike in the tropical jungle, swim or snorkle.

The waters surrounding Lang Tengah Island are shallow. During our visit there, we had snorkeling trips arranged by the resort. Yay!

Look how adorable the sea cucumber was! >.<

Don’t worry, we put it back into the sea after taking its picture. Please do so too to preserve the marine life when you’re there! ;) Other than that, we’ve seen schools of fishes and many corals in the sea. Too bad my Fisheye submarine was not functioning well so I didn’t get to take many underwater pictures for this trip. :( I’m so gonna get an LC-A+ Krab!

We didn’t manage to dive there as we spent comparatively a very short duration there for beach activities, swimming, relaxing, and snorkeling. We heard that encounters with turtles, resident schools of jacks and barracudas, and leopard sharks are almost assured around the tiny coral island. Nevertheless, we’ve spotted quite a few leopard sharks too while snorkeling! We definitely need more days. :) We will be back!

    A Sunday on Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island")

    The Pfaueninsel ("Peacock Island"), also known as "Pearl in the Havel sea," is a world cultural heritage and popular destination for Berliners. Loose peacocks, water buffalos and the magical character of the island were also a reason for me to go and spend one Sunday afternoon there, with my LC-A+ and the LomoChrome Purple film.

    Travel Stories: Trekking Mount Papandayan by shufi

    There are about 127 active volcanoes in Indonesia, one of the most popular ones being Mount Papandayan, located 2,665 meters above sea level in Garut, West Java. My boyfriend and I usually go hiking together so we decided to spend our long weekend holiday (three days/two nights) at Mount Papandayan.

    Long Exposures Around Europe with the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    One of the things I like the most about the Minitar-1 Art lens is how sharp the focus can be when you shoot with a small aperture. So if you are one of those that like to shoot at night, get a tripod, add this to a late dark winter afternoon, and you will end up with a bunch of beautiful long exposures. This is what I did on my last trip to Europe.

    LomoLocations: Tokyo, Japan

    Common advice tells us that Tokyo is best experienced at night. The neon lights of Ginza come on, Shibuya Crossing gets crammed, Ropponggi lets loose. Reverse the advice and we’ll get something like a palate cleanser. The Imperial Palace, Shinjuku Gyoen and small parks peppered around the city offer relief, from morning until late afternoon. Even ordinary streets appeal to tourists. We suspect those secret ramen spots add to the charm.
