Thankful

I’m at the end of my four-day weekend. It’s a bittersweet feeling, shrouded with plenty of nostalgia. It’s always hard to bid goodbye to a nice, long weekend, isn’t it? I always wish I had more time to do everything I wanted to do – catch up on creative writing, spend more time with my…

Birthday Thoughts

It’s my birthday in a few hours, and frankly, I have mixed feelings about turning older. A part of me is excited for the new adventures ahead, while another part of me isn’t ready to say goodbye to my current age and move on to the next. Maybe it’s this cliched fear of growing older,…

Glory

In my deepest wound, I saw Your glory, and it healed me. 

Photography: Jaeshan’s Birthday Party

Photographed a birthday party in Klang earlier this month. The birthday boy was an adorable 4-year-old with the cutest smile and the bubbliest personality!  

Best Thursday Night in Ages

“How’s life?” one of my friends asked via text the other day. I flicked through the variety of general responses that fronted my mind: life’s good, same old same old, nothing much, etc. And then it hit me. “I don’t think I have much of a life,” I typed back, suppressing a sigh. “I’m always…

Honestly

A couple years ago, blogging was my means of escape into a portal of writing. I found comfort in spilling my thoughts – however random, whimsical or dark they were – and didn’t seem to care if my words were read by people I knew or complete strangers. And that was because I was blogging…

The Right Way To Measure Success

The best way to measure the progress you’ve made and how far you’ve come, isn’t based on your career or academics, or how many friends you have. It all comes down to how you spend your time. Who have you made time for? Who have you inspired this year? Whose lives have you touched? And…

Exploring Osaka For The Very First Time

We’d arrived in Osaka in the middle of winter, with gray skies suspended over the city like a blanket – thick, cottony clouds swollen with icy winter rain. Osaka is often overshadowed by Tokyo’s glitz and glamor and Kyoto’s magical beauty, but it’s still a charming city, sprinkled with exciting attractions.

The Wanderlost Journals: Stranded in Rome

Rome: Day 11 & 12 (29.8.14 – 30.8.14) Continuation from here. “If you could be stranded in any part of the world, where would it be?” I bet most people wouldn’t mind being stranded in Rome for a day or even a week. But being in Rome was an accident for us, a little splotch…

The Wanderlost Journals: Trapani

Trapani: Day 10 (28.8.14) Continuation from here. Trapani was the day of pleasant surprises and sun-soaked beaches. When we got up, breakfast was provided in the common room for all guests of the hostel. So we helped ourselves to croissants, toasts, cereal and juice over friendly conversations with other travelers from France and Germany. Before 10…

Stef & Nat

Did a photoshoot for Stefanie and Nathaniel the other weekend. In the past, most of my shoots have been scheduled in the evening because I was always chasing the evening glow. This time, we decided to shoot in the morning because the weather forecast predicted a heavy rain in the evening. So my boyfriend and…

Highlights of 2016

Some years are so wild and electrifying that when they end, it feels like a great year has screeched to a halt – abrupt and dramatic. Well, 2016 was not like that. To me, it felt like a slow fade – dark vignettes rounding the edges of the brief film that was 2016 – all the…
