The name of the restaurant sounds promising. It hints of a time long gone when the city’s food was next to none. But can it live up to its promise?
Old Hong Kong Legend is one of the newer restaurants located in Singapore’s Raffles City. It was one of those places you somehow know is a good place to bring the older and more conservative diners to.
I didn’t have the chance to try out the food, until one day when my wife and I were in the shopping centre during lunch time. We were wondering where to go for lunch when the restaurant as a dining venue came to mind.
The restaurant was fairly spacious. When we were there during a weekday, the patrons were mainly business executives. Given the price list, they would most probably be having a business lunch. My wife and I simply decided to try their Tim Sum.
I did a bit of research about the restaurant, which was one of five outlets in Singapore, after my lunch. According to the people who patronized the outlet, the food is above average. And as for the service, it’s reminiscent of Hong Kong’s famous grouchy waiters with snide remarks rolling off their tongues; though I didn’t experience that when we were there.
I would say that the decor of the place is nicely done up. Being newly set up, the furnishing was still in good shape. All in all, it’s a good business lunch venue.

I’ve been shooting analogue as long as I can remember but it wasn’t until a few months ago that I was introduced to instant photography. So, you can imagine when I was given the chance to try out the recently introduced Lomo’Instant Wide, I “instantly” said yes and hit the streets of Vienna!
New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.
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.

When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.
What do you do when you don't have much time in a city like New York but you want to see everything, feel the vibe and be part of the community, even for a short time? Jump on a bike and enjoy what trains, buses and cabs can never give you: be part of the city. Take a camera with you to capture the moments and sights you don't want to forget. I did this with my LC-A 120 and LomoChrome Purple film.
Water is synonymous to life, but everyone knows this does not apply to the vastness and depths of the Dead Sea. English photographer and wanderlust Maya Beano recollects the time she braved and swam on one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world.
