    Maco TS Eagle 400 AQS: A Graphic Novel

    This must be one of the craziest monochromatic emulsions I came across with. Not only the title is a promise of an adventure, but the pictures are as well. In most black and white films that I have used, objects in the distance become darker. With the Eagle, the darkness flies away. In fact, it's the other way around. The further the object is away from the lens, the brighter it is.

  • 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.
