Jul 10, 2017 – Plaza de España, Sevilla

Seville, Spain, taken on July 1, 2017

I finally went to Seville, the one place in Spain that I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. One short visit made it my favourite Spanish city out of the ones I’ve been to. And I’ve been to quite a few. What an utterly amazing city, filled with beauty and surprises in every corner. I would go back in a heartbeat!

Jan 11, 2017 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Lady on a motorcycle

Hue, Vietnam, taken on December 27, 2015

A review of my past photos reveals some rather interesting shots that I had forgotten about, some candid and unintentional, like this one. I must have quickly snapped this photo of two ladies on a motorcycle in Vietnam as I was passing by, without noticing the expression on the face of the lady in the back. Captions, anyone?

Jan 03, 2017 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Hong Kong from Hopewell

Hong Kong, China, taken on December 31, 2016

Hong Kong is no doubt the most glamorous metropolis that I had been to and its night scene is stunning. I had wanted to go to the Peak to have a panoramic view from a high place, but then I discovered the Hopewell Centre, from which you could take the sightseeing elevator from the 17th to the 56th floor…for free! From the transparent glass elevator, you ascend through the countless high-rise buildings in the Wan Chai area, feeling like you are excelling above all. The view of the city centre was magnificent, especially during the night! Definitely not for the height-fearing and faint-hearted though…! (See the original photo in colour.)

Dec 28, 2016 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: My hometown

Guangzhou, China, taken on December 20, 2016

I never considered my hometown, Guangzhou, to be a very beautiful place, but when I posted this photo of Guangzhou on various social networking sites, several friends remarked that the Guangzhou depicted here is “beautiful”. Perhaps it is the faint sign of a blue sky that may be so rare in northern China nowadays. Perhaps its the greenery that is present even amid the urban centre. Perhaps…Guangzhou is beautiful, and I just never noticed it.
