Falling In Love

Fall has come and gone in New York. It’s my favorite season, among my other favorites like summer, spring and fall. I love how it brings out the melodramatic side of me.

Orange, red, browns and greens. Beauties fluttering in the wind.

Flipping up my collars and cupping my hands, I felt the cool breezes brushing against…

Bird, Bridge, Brooklyn

I miss New York. I still remember it was my first two days back in Singapore and for a moment, I mistook falling leaves as snow when I was on a bus on my way to work. I know it sounds funny, almost ludicrous. But somehow I always lapse into these moments of “Where am…

Uncle was smiling at me as I strapped my camera on my neck. He was so happy to see us. Simply overjoyed. We were at Telok Ayer Seniors Activity Centre, in Singapore’s Chinatown, distributing ‘care packages’. I forgot what we put in the packages, but I don’t think it matters as much as our company….

The Beauty of Looking Up

The Beauty of Looking Up

I love guided walks when I was in New York, even though I was always one of the rare few residents among the tourist crowd. Somehow, I always learned something new and that was what makes living in New York such a beautiful experience!  Maki joined me in this walk through the West Village. It…
