It's been 9 months since I visited the Malaysian state of Penang, and I'm already feeling the need to go back.
During the weekend, while cleaning out my drawers, I found some stuff from my trip to Malaysia with two officemates turned travel buddies — brochures, bus tickets, train tickets, boarding passes, museum stubs. It has been 9 months and it was a trip of many firsts (which I should remember to tell you guys about in another story!), so seeing all these bits and pieces flooded me with many good memories.
So, after pasting the tickets on my travel journal’s pages, I browsed through my albums of film photos from the trip. I especially miss the sights and tastes of Penang, Malaysia’s food capital and a delightful mix of new and old. It didn’t help my wanderlust for Penang (especially George Town, the state’s capital situated in Penang Island) when I found out about the George Town Festival, “a month-long celebration of art, music, theatre, dance, opera and film” held every year since 2010 to “commemorate George Town’s inscription on the UNESCO World Heritage listing on 7 July, 2008.” Too bad I couldn’t make it to this year’s festival.
I also wanted to take a look at what some of my fellow lomographers have photographed during their own visits, and these are some of my favorites:
It’s been 9 months too long and I can’t wait to go back.
It's been a boiling, scorching, baking hot summer here in the Philippines since March, and believe it or not, I haven't been to the beach yet. I'm going to do something about that, but not without making another playlist for the trip! This time, I decided to make a mix inspired by the summer vacations of my younger days.
Inspiration comes to us in different ways, in various forms, sometimes in unexpected ways. I've always been interested in the workspaces, processes, and things that inspire artists around the world, so I really enjoyed watching the short documentary detailing the creative world of a Venetian artist called Zaira.
So, how do you make a beautiful series of photographs? It’s simple – merge two already beautiful subjects like women and flowers the way photographer Lara Kiosses did with this amazing series of multiple exposure photographs.
When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand, located at the Danish west coast, with my brothers and parents. I stopped going there as I grew up. In 2012 however, we hit the road again. It was my first return visit in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In part two of my journey log, I'm going to show you the pictures I took with my Lomography cameras.

When I was a child, I regularly went to Blaavand located at the Danish west coast with my brothers and my parents. However, I didn't anymore when I grew up. But in 2012, we hit the road again. It was my first visit there in about 20 years. I took the chance and packed as many cameras as possible into my luggage. In this article, I'm going to present to you the photos I took with my Nikon F-501 SLR.
Have you all watched "Eat, Pray, Love"? I was inspired by Julia Roberts, who rode a bicycle in that movie, so I decided to rent one and try it myself! This happened two years ago but I still remember my biking route. To all of you who haven't been to Ubud, I think you should visit the place and try to go around in a bicycle!
