Guangzhou, China, taken on April 6, 2015

The trip back to Guangzhou last month opened my eyes to a new side of my hometown that I had never seen before. Glittering skylines with tall skyscrapers resembling cities like Hong Kong and Shanghai – a Guangzhou that I had not known in my childhood. Among the new landmarks is the new Guangzhou Tower, which I have to admit looks pretty elegant and slick.

Bordeaux, France, taken on January 10, 2013

I’ve never been a fan of rain, but having lived in Bordeaux means that I’ve experienced a lot of it. Bordeaux is an elegant lady that loves to cry a little too much sometimes. Even so, when she glistens in her tears, so is still beautiful, especially during the lonely night. (See the original photo in colour.)

Jan 28, 2015 – [Wednesday] Travel Favs: Champs-Élysées

Paris, France, taken on December 28, 2010

I had never been a big fan of the Champs-Élysées nor of Paris, but this photo of the Champs-Élysées, taken at night on top of the Arc de Triomphe during my first ever trip to Paris, became one of my all-time favourite travel photos. The Ferris wheel at the other end – Place de la Concorde – isn’t always there, and I was lucky that it was there during the Christmas season. And the lanes of traffic on the self-proclaimed most beautiful avenue in the world – with the sidewalks lit in blue, the entire scene looks like a national flag stretched out from top to bottom (though interestingly, out of all the tri-coloured European flags, none of them are in the order of white, red, and blue, either horizontal or vertical.)

[Travel time] The Deák Ferenc tér (square) is an important public square in the city of Budapest. During Christmas season, it was booming with dazzling colours, fairgrounds, and markets.

December 08, 2014 – Evening glow

This will be my last time seeing this view of the West End from this bedroom, as I am moving tomorrow. The cathedral glows a ghostly white (thanks to the condensation on the window), but the light diminishes silently shortly before midnight.
