  • Visiting the Statue of Liberty National Monument

    Visiting the Statue of Liberty National Monument
    The Statue of Liberty is one of New York State's famous historical landmarks. When you plan to tour the statue, you will also get to visit the National Immigration Museum at Ellis Island as it is part of the Statue of Liberty National Monument.

  • Come Down to Chinatown with Tooth Relic Temple

    Come Down to Chinatown with Tooth Relic Temple
    Chinatown is a place filled with Chinese culture, Chinese people, food, buildings etc. It is an important and favourite place for Chinese people who have been living overseas especially in western countries. It is where they find Chinese cuisine which they miss, streets with Chinese-inspired decorations (red lanterns, small God altars and many more) and most importantly, people of the same race. I would like to introduce a place in Chinatown (Singapore) and it is a must-see location. It is the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple which was built in 2007 and located in Temple Street.

  • The Last Days of Pompeii... or the Start of Lomography?

    The Last Days of Pompeii... or the Start of Lomography?
    When I was very young (11 year old) I took some photos of Pompeii. These photos were taken with a Kodak Instamatic camera, with the eye of a child. Back in 1976, Lomography was still unknown, but these old photos are taken in this style. Maybe the beauty of Lomography is to take photos with the style of a very young boy?

    Spend an Afternoon in Geylang
    If you ask a Singaporean about Geylang, most of them will think of delicious local delights like pig organ soup, frog porridge, teochew porridge, beancurd, and many more or if not the food, then the red light district. Actually there is more to Geylang than food and the red light district where you can find many brothels. Let me show you guys some photos before I continue.

    Oldies Over at Toa Payoh
    If we talk about old public housing in Singapore, that would be Toa Payoh. Toa Payoh (大巴窑), located in the Central Region, is one of the oldest districts in Singapore. It had the first few satellite public housing estates of Singapore built there. The name itself is Hokkien and it means "big swamp" as there was a swampy area that preceded the later development of the market garden of Chinese people there.
