    Discovering the Marquesas archipelago (part 4): Ua Huka

    After visiting Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa, we finally landed on the last island of our Marquesas trip, Ua Huka. We decided to spend 3 days on this very small island as everybody told us that it was the most magic and wild one, absolutely different from all the other islands. And indeed, we really made a trip "into the wild".....

    Pontiac Bloc Metal 41: The Irrestible Charm Of A Folding Camera

    For my last birthday, my sister gave me a wonderful present: a Pontiac bloc metal 41, an old folding camera she found on a flea market. She immediately thought that it could be a great camera to add to my collection, as I didn't have any folding one at this time.

    Have you ever been to Pudu Prison before? Pudu Prison was once opened to the public, however, as attendance from Malaysians are low, they shut the prison down and did not retain the prison as a historical site to pave way for a brand new building. Modernization at it's best

    There's one very special place on Raiatea I'd like to show you: it's located in the village of Tevaitoa on the west coast. This village has a place that can perfectly symbolize 3 important moments of the history of Raiatea and Polynesia. On the same place you can find a marae, a protestant church and a battlefield of and ultimate fight against the french army in 1897...

    The Wapping Project

    One of the best galleries in London, for real. My love affair with this gallery started through a lucky accident. I was flat hunting at that time when I saw a poster of a Guy Bourdin exhibition on the wall of some old building, which appeared to be a former Hydraulic Power Station, now the home of The Wapping Project Gallery.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Spirit of Jogja

    It is the marvel of Java, the cultural center of Indonesia: Yogyakarta, or, as we assimilated locals call it, Jogja! Jogja is full of historic sites and exudes a very adventurous yet welcoming spirit. It is a true multireligious melting pot that has seen kings and sultans come and go, and religions introduced and either went or stayed. Time has been gentle on Jogja. It's one of my most favorite cities in Asia.
