just thought i'd share another photo of the sunset in koh lanta :)

yes, im in the mood for solace. hence the sunset pictures. i feel a need for a retreat, to get away from work, and just sit by beach and look out, into the water, into nothing.

the minute i saw this photo, i knew its time for a holiday.

hello! excuse me! is it time for a holiday yet please???!!!

if you dont mind can you tell me all your hopes and fears
and everything that you believe in
would you make a difference in the world
i'd love for you to take me to a deeper conversation
only you can make me

i cant quite remember where i got these pictures from, but if you do come across them here, leave a name :)

*f letter

ok, i know this is post is waaaaayyyy overdued, but 2008 has come and gone, and we are now 3 good months into 2009. ive heard many people say that 2009 will be a good year, but seems like the current economic situation is making most of them choke back on their words. times are bad, and im more than thankful to god (and my boss :/) that i still do have a job. ive been fortunate to have been, and still am, able to travel and see the magnifico! wonders of nature and the world. being stuck in a fast-paced environment leaves no room for air, so the short getaways really do help at times. most times.

i know singapore has her own beauty, but living here, you tend to let these pass you day by day without even noticing them. i prefer it that way anyway. its ok that i ignore my own country's beauty, so that when i do go on a holiday, it'll actually feel like a holiday.

anyway, random, but here are my favourite sunsets of 2008. im gonna keep a list starting from now for 2009!

koh lanta sunset

koh lipe sunset

i think my favourite sunset till date would probably be the first one i saw in koh lanta. yes, i have a favourite sunset, only because the sun sets every single day, and its only fair that i get to pick my favourite :)

second would be in the tailboat on the way to koh lipe.

and third would be high up on viewing gallery at MoMa Tokyo.

it could be that im cheating by just mentioning the places that ive been to for my recent holidays, but thats about as much as i can remember of my memorable sunsets.

i just realised i havent posted any photos of my past year travels on this blog. facebook has been so convenient when it comes to sharing photos that uploading them up here feels like such a chore :/

i finally got my rolls of film developed (back frm japan, jogja and thailand), and am quite happy with how the photos turned out. the roll from my diana dreamer will only be ready tom, so im hoping ive got better stuff out from there :) my first roll, but more to come! hopefully i wont be too lazy to post those :/

anyway, here's what kyoto looks like in late autumn :)

and 2 of my personal fav shots :)



i'll post more when im not too lazy :x promise!

i was browsing around and read someone's article about living in paris and realised how much in like i was with the city. paris has a certain charm amidst all that high fashion and glamour. to me, paris is all crepes and baguettes, mussels and wine, cafes and rivers, bonjour and ouis.

*from kari herer's Paris Market

while im at it, igourmet has a pretty good selection of french goodies :)

i came across this on facebook and was thinking, hey what the hey, lets see what mines gonna be.

What would your own album look like if you were in a band? Follow the directions below and find out...

Here are the rules:

1 - Go to Wikipedia. Hit “random”
or click
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2 - Go to Quotations Page and select "random quotations"
or click
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your first album.

3 - Go to Flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”
or click
Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it all together.

5 - Post it to FB with this text in the "caption" or "comment" and TAG the friends you want to join in.

maybe i should have cheated or kept going until i found a suitable one for each part. but wheres the fun in it if i do that right?

anyway heres what i got; i decided to do up 2 covers instead of one cos well, i really wasnt quite happy about a pregnant woman as a cd cover :/

so as you can see, nothing in life makes sense !

band name : The Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications
album title : Take Care of the Luxuries and the Necessities will Take Care of Themselves

you try!

i tag, sel, din and izk.
