Notting Hill

Pretending to be Anna Scott lost in Notting Hill, London hoping William Thacker would find her...or at least offer her a cup of tea with milk in a very thick British accent, please... But of course that only happens in Notting Hill movie. While in real life, I'm so lucky my company sent me to London last April for work. Thanks to my buddy Dodo for showing me around London including an afternoon in Notting Hill. The next day I set up my alarm so early at 6 am, took a train back to Notting Hill and managed to capture images of the empty street.  

Kelly Street, Kentish Town

If you wondering what else to do in London... definitely hunting the city's prettiest streets. Especially if you love photography, be sure to visit Kelly Street in Kentish Town, Bywater Street in Chelsea and of course Notting Hill. Can't wait to return hopefully this September to capture more what the city has in store for me.

Antelope Canyon

Recently I found myself back in Nevada with my best friend on a mission to visit Antelope Canyon ( after a night out in Las Vegas dancing to Calvin Harris and Backstreet Boys ). Once again life never ceases to amaze me, what started out as imagination, wish lists, those "I want to..." eventually came true at the right time with the right people. Antelope Canyon has been on top of my list for quite a while, I thought I would do it sometime next year since my original plan this summer was visiting Dublin. So I cancelled Dublin, booked my last minute flight ticket to California - including a day tour to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend with GC Tours ( $149/person ). They pick you up early morning in your hotel in Vegas then take you to Horseshoe Bend, Lake Powell and Lower Antelope Canyon. Unfortunately that day was really hot ( honestly the hottest place I've ever visited, 48'C ?) so Lower Antelope Canyon was closed but our tour guide did above and beyond to get us into the Canyon, so we headed to the Upper Antelope Canyon. I have to admit I had no idea what to expect, of course we all knew it was going to be a beautiful destination, but I don't think I was prepared for just how stunning it is. Make it so worth the 8 hours drive, the heat - well people said difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.

Singapore Zoo

Always making the most of weekends at home... you can either find me dancing in my little studio, brunching at different cafes or just photo shooting around Singapore. While I'm so lucky to travel the world both for work and pleasure, I never thought being home become such a privilege lately. To take sometime off from routines, catch up on my other passions and projects, then come back to work always with fresh and bigger ideas... 

I just recently purchased Sony A6000 with E-mount lens SEL50F18. It's time to step up my photography game after almost 3 years using Canon G16. The camera and lens are amazing especially if you're a beginner and want to learn more about photography, I just love how my new lens helped me to capture great portraits. Still need to improve and practice a lot before heading to South Africa or Nepal, hopefully real soon.
