Today, a friend of mine took me to a newly opened restaurant called Ujong. Owned by Chef Shen Tan who’s known for her so-called “Mod-Sin” (Modern Singaporean) cuisine. Mod-Sin cuisine is a combination of the eastern flavours of Singapore with a dash of western tang. The truth is, before I came to this restaurant, I haven’t really heard about Mod-Sin cuisine. […]
I visited a rather unusual tourist destination in Paris. Many people consider this place desolate and dismal. But this place had a certain allure to it. And my little trip to the Pere Lachaise cemetery reminded me how life should be celebrated despite its bitter sorrows. A lot of famous people are laid to rest here. […]

Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of the most visited attractions in southern Kyoto. Famous for its thousands of vermillion torii gates. I’ve managed to snap quite a number of shots while I was there. Here are some of them.
I am not a wine aficionado but I am growing fonder of wines day by day. In fact one of the reasons that compels me to travel to a particular city or country is the desire to visit vineyards and to taste wines. Bordeaux being famous for its first-class wines, makes it one of the top […]
Barcelona is pulsating with vivid beauty. There are so many interesting subjects to photograph in this city. Although photographs, no matter how well composed or captured, will never justify the true beauty of Barcelona. Here are a few of the shots I took.
