Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside

phonto (1)

Something inside me changes every time I travel. A new experience makes me appreciate life’s beauty and I feel so lucky given the chance to experience a new culture. The curiosity in me is satisfied when I learn about the history of the place and how the people coped up with the challenges thrown their way. We may come from different countries, different religions, different beliefs and cultures but we are all the same in a way – trying to find that one thing that makes our world a better place.

Chinese new year is also known as the Spring Festival and is the oldest and most important festival in China. Dragon dances are common for such a festival. The face of the dragon together with the sound of the drums and cymbals are used to ward off bad luck and evil spirits. Let us join our Chinese brothers and sisters all over the world in welcoming the year of the snake. Gong Xi Fa Cai!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Geometry

It is interesting to see different shapes and patterns around us. It makes things aesthetically beautiful and pleasing to the eyes. When I travel, I like looking at different geometrical shapes and patterns and I plan out how to capture the image in my camera. This photo was taken while walking around at night in Singapore.

Photo of the Day – Little India

Little India is an interesting part of Singapore. Here, one can see Hindu temples, numerous authentic Indian restaurants and souvenir stores. It is interesting to note that a lot of Indian people still wear the sari (the women) in their everyday lives and not just on special occasions. If you get a chance to visit Singapore, do drop by Little India and you will be amaze with all the things you can find here, especially the food. 🙂

The Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands offers guests a great swim and a wonderful view. Located at the topmost floor, one can view the skyline of Singapore and appreciate the stunning architecture of the city. On the photo above, a couple is enjoying each other’s company while relaxing by the pool.

Photo of the Day – Clarke Quay At Night

Clarke Quay is located at the center of Singapore along the Singapore River and Boat Quay. Historically, this area was the center of business and trade. Today, it houses various restaurants and entertainment centers. The place comes alive at night but despite all of that, this couple was able to find a quiet place to enjoy each other’s company.
