This was a random book I pulled out from the library and a fun read. A short existential love story with a literature professor as the protagonist, referencing and alluding situations to all of my favourite authors and literary pieces during my angsty late teenage years and through university from Goethe’s Sorrows of Young Werther […]
I made a note to read this book by Lauren Collins as I continue to learn how to navigate my intercultural marriage with a French man. The book is somewhat interesting, anecdotal and also a discourse in linguistics in some chapters (which I found rather dry and difficult to get through). Kind of wanting to cover […]

I was inspired by the Digital photography blog post on first steps to improve your photography is to make the effort to take a photo a day and stock take with this 365 days photography. Well, here’s day one. I think limiting oneself to a photo a day makes one more mindful of what moment […]
It’s actually harder than I thought to be disciplined enough to take a photo a day with my DSLR as I don’t religiously carry it out with me every single day. Here’s a photo from my terrace.
Part of the photography class I took, learning how to work with manual settings to take good photos in the night. Still getting the hang of the holy trinity of ISO, Aperture and shutter speeds.
Learning more about lighting and motion blur… and shooting with a tripod.
I love the moods that candle lit spaces create, but it’s hard to capture sharp images in the dark without a tripod. I think the leaves and diffuser bottle looks pretty well defined, so I think I didn’t do so badly here. I struggled however with the garden photo below. Let it too much light… […]
I decided not to cheat and edit any of the photos as it’s an exercise to compare 365 days of photos and how much better I get at knowing my camera’s manual settings. Here’s mini fish burgers at Bangkok’s Sühring twins restaurant. Very delicious and I did the photos quickly but mindfully, in an attempt […]
I think daily posts are tedious, so I’m rounding up weekly posts. :) I don’t know if I am improving at this, but I think as with every new skill, it’s a work in progress. I am getting the hang of shutter speed and aperture, hopefully it’d get easier and become more of an autopilot […]
My friend Mita recommended me this book and it was a great read. I didn’t know much about Dr Oliver Sacks until I was having a conversation with a friend who is a prof in neuroscience and another neurosurgeon friend. I was also recommended to watch the movie “The Awakening”, which I haven’t had a […]

Wanchai wet market, two ladies kept moving and chattering in the frame so I thought I’d just shoot it anyway, the mad business of a weekday morning marketing session. I didn’t realise the right side of the frame in a way gave the picture more”depth”? Love the yellow crocks. :) Spot the dog in the […]
A different shot of these Masala tea. The tea however is more a tea latte than a masala chai. I never noticed the little hoops for the melons to sit on in case they roll off the rack. I haven’t figured out how to take sky shots where it doesn’t compromise the colours of the […]
A couple of friends were reading Gut and recommended it. It starts off accessible and fun – an easy to read educational book on our insides, but I have to admit I didn’t finish it because it got annoying with the constant need to insert (not funny) jokes to lighten certain issues and after a […]
Slightly late on this one, had friends visiting and working on a few projects lately, including sewing, which takes up alot of my mindful meditation time in full focus. Some days, I also struggle to find something to photography everyday, which forces me to look deeper and harder to find beauty in everything and every day […]
Lots of food photos as it’s been a little hectic and stressful this past week and I forgot to stop daily to look at the beauty in daily life. None of these photos have been retouched as I’d like to track the process and journey of evolving and getting to know my camera and light. […]
I haven’t been reading as much as I’d like to as I haven’t been going to the library and am currently slowly getting through all the books I bought but haven’t read. Currently reading “Eating Animals” by Jonathan Safran Foer and slowly digesting it. My friend crafty academic is a woman of so many talents. […]
I bought a new 50mm lens for my Canon D1200, also known as the “nifty 50” and portrait lens. I hesitated getting one because I wanted to first get to know my basic kit lens and camera, but I gave in to temptation. The effects are remarkably different. Here’s baby J, truly his parents son […]
