Come and enjoy a warm summer evening at Brighton Beach. With the famous beach boxes behind you, a city view to your right and the sunset over the bay in front of you. Ah, the serenity!
A little way down the coast from the well-known tourist destination, St Kilda Beach, is the much quieter, Brighton Beach. Brighton is one of Melbourne’s rather well to-do suburbs, you will probably be sharing the beach with some locals – as they sip cool drinks in the comfort of their private beach box! The beach boxes have a long history here in Brighton. They have a very uniform construction, their design today is the same as a hundred years ago. The color schemes however, are all individual. Any Lomographer will love the wide variety of colors and designs in the warm light of the setting sun. The beach has been well protected from over development, there are some cafes nearby, but not on the beachfront. I recommend you pack a picnic or pick up some fish and chips on your way there. Sit and enjoy the atmosphere, take a dip in the calm water of the bay, then sit and watch the show as the setting sun enhances all the colors around you.
January and February in Melbourne often has many hot days, regularly above 30 degrees C and usually a few days above 40. If you find yourself sweltering in the heat of one of these days, call some friends, pack that picnic and jump on the train! The Sandringham line stops at Brighton Beach station. From there, a few minutes walk and you’ll be at the Foreshore Reserve with a great view of the beach, it’s beach boxes and the city in the background. Please don’t forget your camera!

It’s normal during summer to be out there at the beach, sunbathing and getting yourself a nice tan, but in Malaysia, it could get pretty hot this time of the year. With the rising temperature, my friends and I decided to escape the heat of the city for a while and took an approximately three-hour drive to Cameron Highlands.

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!
Here’s a random and rather mysterious tale for you folks. Just the other day, I was at a local bar with a few friends. It was much like any other evening; we were sipping a couple of cocktails, recounting our adventures, falling over ourselves with laughter and half-drunkenly meditating on the meaning of life (a scientist once told me it’s 42 by the way). But then something truly strange happened. Read on to hear my story and please make a comment with your guess at the end!
