It was a fun journey. 

It was a roller coaster stress of emotions and deadlines and understanding cases. 

This module, Strategy is really very interesting. Taught me on how to analyse the environment and external factors and not forgetting the internal factors which may restrict our decision. Knowing our strength and weakness, really allow us to understand our capabilities. 

We always make our time in better use when we are stretched like a rubber band. We displayed the best part ourselves when we are being stretched out. This adrenaline is so powerful. 

We should always bear in mind that, stretching like a rubber band will allow us to perform than what we are capable of. 

  Don’t multitask. 

Concentrate and focus is what I need.

S.H.E 2GETHER 4EVER WORLD TOUR 2013 in Singapore!

I felt sad for the demise of LW’s grandfather. But because of this, I was given a last minute call to join Ting for this concert!
And yeah, here I am excited and upset as I had to give a miss on the photo sharing dinner session on their recent Sri Lanka trip!

The concert is really worth my time, my screams, my sexy voice (the day after), the sour arms and not forgetting that “idiotic entrance security man”!

Talk about the security officer! I took the effort and check on the new regulations Singapore Indoor Stadium has. It stated that NO professional cameras are allowed. I was out during the day, Leica M6 was with me. This man told me, you are not allowed to enter. Production team do not allow any cameras. (Right, I believed you!) If so, post a notice out and announce to all, making a disclaimer, no entry if you are found with a camera. (Opps! I don’t know if our smartphone should be considered as a CAMERA!)

I am seriously disgusted with that kind of attitude. Rules stated, no professional camera. You do not have the right to deny my entry unless I broke the rules. Obviously I did not. Singapore Indoor Stadium, please reflect on your rules and probably ensure all teams are briefed. If there are additional rules, please make an announcement. Anyway, I felt that I’m treated unfairly. As I entered the stadium, I should note down my expression.

I saw Fuji XPro series, I see Olympus Pen series, I see Panasonic cameras. Basically, I saw the m4/3 cameras. Not attached with “pancake 27mm” lens but 50mm lens or maybe 85mm if there is such lens? With the crop factor of most probably of x2, their lens will be an average of 100mm at least. My M6 was coupled with 50mm lens. Tell me which camera is much more threatening? Seriously? I was disappointed. They “smuggled” their gears in, whereas I was honest showing you the gears in an empty bag. So? (Lesson learnt, try smuggle your things in. Being honest don’t help! *Argh!*) So upsetting, the world changed too much.

Thank you, S.H.E. This concert reminded me why I love you girls so much since Secondary School. Many of us listened to your music as we started our teenagers’ years. YOU amazed me!

It is a collection of theirs songs for 12 years!!! Since 2001! It was filled with enjoyment, excitement and tears. It brings back fond school memories. Memories where their songs accompanied me during my happy and sad times. It brings back memories of my sec sch buddies too. Friends I don’t contact regularly.

S.H.E always bring sunshine to my life. They are a great source of positive pillar of support. Thank you to the concert, it has created great impact on me. Selina also shared her thoughts and proved that miracles do really happen. Don’t lose hope, create hope. I love the close relationship they shared. They are not pretentious. They also presented their vocal very well. Every single LIVE performances they present was wonderful. You girls, deserve our love and respect!

Ella’s bossiness. The boy had grew up into feline beauty.
Hebe has turned from a young girl to a beautiful woman, who is still an introvert.
Selina had been through the tough time and got her greatest wish come true. Which is to get married!

Hebe talks the least amongst Ella and Selina.

I love S.H.E! Thank you for the great performance you had put up! ❤ ❤

My Virgin Trip to Taiwan!

It has been a long while since I updated this blog. I have been wanting to pen down my experiences last June!

A friend of mine went to Australia to farm and earn her meals and accommodation. That gave me the idea on what will my next trip be! I started googling and reading up and making my research. Told Ting about my plan and she loved my idea! I just knew I got the right person to go on this trip with me, although I had the intention to travel on my own for the first time!

Thank you to WWOOF. This is a wonderful platform for me who lives in this urban nature country. Read up if you are interested to meet people, work for them, in return you get a place to sleep and eat in. ❤

As my title suggested, YES! I went to Taiwan for the FIRST timeeEeeeee! It was so exciting because Ting made an announcement to the colleagues that she will be farming in TW! Thankfully to this, we have to make this trip come true! Registering through WWOOF (TW), scanning through that list of hosts and making decisions. Contacting the farm, searching for a cheap flight that suits our period….. Lunch time, after work, AXS machine (well! We didn’t wanted to pay for the surcharge incurred from Credit Card), planning our trip, continue to move around in Taipei after the farm work. Wondering, what kind of people we will meet. How will the living condition be like. Do we need this and that, bring this and that. Oh god! I missed that kind of tension created at times and the lotsa fun!

It was a wonderful experience. We get to meet the hosts and their families. They treated us sincerely, as a friend, as a family. I am glad that my mum brought me up well. Teachings from Fo Tang guided me well. Together with my 2 friends, we had a good time. Respect, love, kindness, eager and many more, we all experienced these during our 11days stay. Three of us are considered as representations from the country! Really!

If you love outdoors…
If you don’t mind some labour work…….
If you don’t mind getting dirty…….
If you love to interact with people…..
If you enjoy the different culture people have……..
If you want to travel around unlike any others do…..
Join WOOOFing!
You will not regret this experience.

Be open and enjoy! My first experience in the farm in Tai Chung was really goood!
We’re welcomed to visit and join them again. I will be back, when I need a break away from this urban nature.
But please, do not transform that town into another urban area. Stay in this way.
Don’t destroy what our mother nature had created and given to us.

35mm B&W on Macro

This is 2 of the shots I have recently tried. Stepping out of the digital world, I forced myself to look at things differently. It wasn’t easy but it was a great learning time. Having so used to shoot macro in digital, going on nostalgia film was a challenge! On Nikon F100 and 105mm nikkor lens, I went for my morning walk. An interesting morning… I enjoyed! (:
