I love watching the sunrise, although there are only a few places to admire the sunrise in my hometown, and Teluk Chempedak is the place I usually go to do this.
Teluk Chempedak is a famous beach in Kuantan, Pahang. It is a popular place among the locals for some fun and relaxation. Most of the people from other places who visit Kuantan will pay a visit to Teluk Chempedak too. There are many things to do at the beach such as picnicking, kite flying, water sports and swimming. Teluk Chempedak is also known as a famous spot to watch the sunrise.
Teluk Chempedak is just about a 10- to 15-minute drive from my house. It has become the regular place I go to for admiring the sunrise because it is near my house and the beach is the place where I love to hang out. I have been to Teluk Chempedak for the sunrise a few times. To be able to catch the sunrise, I must be at the beach before 6.30 in the morning. Usually, I am such a lazy girl who refuse to wake up and leave my comfortable bed too early. But for the chance of welcoming a beautiful sunrise, I always set the alarm the day before and wake up immediately when the clock rings.
Sitting on the sandy beach and waiting for the sun to rise is such an amazing moment. I like how the sea breeze blows on my face gently. Once a while, I can hear birds chirping. I like to see how the sky changes its colors when the sun rises. It is stunning especially when the weather is good and the sky is clear that day.
Here are some of the sunrise photos which I took in three different days.
Welcoming the sunrise is definitely a great way to kick start a brand new day!
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.

Going away for the weekend is always fun, especially if, like me, you live abroad and go back to visit your home city! For my walk through Milan, I decided to bring with me the Lomo’Instant because well, I just love it! Here are my thoughts after this special weekend!
When someone asks me why I love Burkina Faso so much and what's so special about it, I answer without any hesitation: the people. There's something in this country that connects the people together very strongly. Here, foreign visitors are warmly welcomed. And honestly, I think that the portraits I'm most proud of and that I really love are those shot in Burkina Faso. "Why," you ask?
There are quite a few perks that come with working for a film photography company, and the best perk of all is testing out the latest cameras. I can remember buying my LC-A back in 2009 and being really inspired to shoot film again. When the LC-A 120 came along, I couldn't wait to try it out around London. Join me as I test out this super medium format beauty.

Every year I get the winter blues. I start imagining the feel of the sunrays, ice cold beer after a long summer day, and the endless hours spent on the beach. I have captured moments, memories, and dreams this year, which is my favorite thing to do. This is a short version and visual diary of my year 2014.
Apologies for making you go through my "weekend with my BFFs" shots, but I do want to share with you some easy tips and ideas to shoot your Lomo'Instant in the daylight and outdoor. This is especially aimed at people who don't read manuals.
My list of resolutions for 2015 consists of 12 projects, one for every month. March was for caffenol. You have probably heard of the amazing fact that you can develop black and white photos with coffee, sodium, and vitamin C. I had tried this before but with less than stellar results. Somehow, there's always something going wrong. Time to devote a few rolls to caffenol to finally get the hang of it.
Unless you are well-traveled, there’s a pretty good chance that you are going to be shooting the same places over and over again. Here are some ways you can mix it up and make those same places fun when you shoot at them next.
It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
If you want to know the heart of a person, peek inside his/her wardrobe! And no, nobody famous said that; I only just made it up. But really, don't you think it's true? After all, the way we dress screams our personality; at least for most of us. And that is why, as soon as I land on a new city, one of the things I absolutely must do is find the local boutiques. Sure, I love the fancy chain boutiques as much as the next person, but there's just something else about a local clothing store. It's unique!
