Oops, it's been almost three weeks since my last post. I like to think that this indicates that I've been spending more time offline recently, meeting friends and actually doing things.

Just a few more photos from my trip to Malacca (see part 1 here).

I'm off to do a bit of travelling and won't be posting for the next few weeks. See you in October, friends!

Malacca: part 1

Seafood by the sea

Probably the best fruit in the world

About a month ago, my family and I drove up to Malacca for the weekend. In addition to eating what seemed like an endless array of Really Good Food (I will never forget those durians, they were good AND cheap), we stumbled onto a Mini Cooper convention, explored the quaint little shops along Jonker Street and admired the Fort A Famosa.

Click through for details about each photo. More to follow!

I still have much to learn about shooting with black & white film, but I like how these photos have way more contrast than the ones from the last roll I shot.

There's one day each year on which Singaporeans take a break from complaining about our country and praise it instead, and that's National Day! Happy birthday, Singapore!

Hey, that font looks familiar!

Yet another reason why the Korean language fascinates me: the addition of a single stroke (in this case, 'ㄴ') can change the meaning of a whole phrase.

Why couldn't I have been this enthusiastic towards learning Mandarin during my school days? Oh, right - because it was compulsory and I didn't see the need for it at that point. Motivation changes everything.
