    Solomon islands - the world's magical end

    It feels like the world’s end. Imagine just you, the ocean, tropical rainforest and traditional leaf hut villages. Longing to go off the beaten track? There is no beaten track.. :) We were lucky to win a trip to one of the last South Pacific frontiers, the Solomon islands. Armed with a Lomography Spinner 360 and a Sprocket Rocket we went on an adventure to the most remote and secretive islands you can imagine. And guess what? You’re about to discover a glimpse of our experiences...

    The Rainforest World Music Festival in Kuching

    The abundance of nature in Kuching was a welcomed contrast for a Hong Konger. The beauty of the land, the people, and the union of the two through music was something I'm very glad I was a part of and should be a universal experience. Join me on a climb to a waterfall and more from my first trip to Malaysia after the jump!
