Morning Light is Good Light

I love the morning sun. It creates such nice shadows and highlights 🙂

The Mystery of the Missing Book

I’m very distressed. My one and only copy of Kahlil Gibran’s “The Prophet” has mysteriously disappeared. Since Sunday, I’ve been searching all over my house for it and I can’t find it… it’s strange cos’ I know I’m the only one in the house who reads these types of books, and I’ve always put my […]

Funny Faces

My attempt at a collage with a non-standard border…

The Fruits of Civilisation

This morning I read the headlines before coming into work (my mum finally decided to have the papers delivered to the house… yay!) and I noticed that Israel had decided to dismantle the security fence they put up in the West Bank. I’d been following this story over the past week and I felt that […]

My Homer Simpson impression

I was quite happy when I got a break last year. For some inexplicable reason, everyone in my reservist unit got called back for training except me. For a while there, I actually was hopeful that the SAF had forgotten all about me. Then a few days ago, I received the dreaded letter calling me […]

Clifford Pier

They’re going to demolish Clifford Pier soon… it’ll be strange to see this place go, especially since it’s been around for as long as I can remember. It’s always had this quiet existence, and now it’s going to quietly fade away into the past.

What a morning walk will do…

I took a morning walk down the Arab Street area a couple of days back, and here are some of the shots I got… I loved the feeling of feeling like a tourist, especially when it’s your own country 🙂

Workouts and Tired Outs

Ugh, woke up tired this morning. Maybe it was because I dreamt that I went for a jog (something I haven’t done in a LONG time!) Out of curiousity, I decided to weigh the load of gear that a geek like me carries into work everyday, and I was surprised to find that it was […]

The day I met Sponge Bob

I’m tired and sleepy and I have to get up early tomorrow morning but I couldn’t resist blogging about this… I met Sponge Bob Square Pants today at Nickelodeon’s presentation on the latest merchandising and licensing opportunities. Personally, I think I was just there to satisfy my cousin’s craving to see Sponge Bob, and he’s […]

Dark Room Magic

I spent the afternoon in the darkroom learning how to make black and white prints while Joan was on her top secret assignment on one of our offshore islands 😉 It was pure magic watching images appear on a blank sheet of photographic paper, and realising that it’s one that you took… I find it […]
