Smart City Solutions for the Aged

Singapore has ambitions of becoming the world's first true smart city. This is evident from the things that one experiences in everyday life here. Its mass transit system operates off a single unified electronic ticketing system that provides feedback to its...

The Petronas Twin Towers in Time Lapse

This is a really short time lapse film that I shot over a couple of hours while I was visiting Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia. To be perfectly honest, I specifically went up to Kuala Lumpur to visit the Petronas Twin Towers. They are quite the architectural marvel, but to...

Riding the Dubai Metro

Dubai epitomises a brand new city. This Emirate has experienced rapid growth in the past decade, to the extent that locals here can lose their bearings if they leave town for a few months, only to discover a new highway or two, or an entirely new high-rise under...

Visiting Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a city that offers a great urban getaway. It is generally safe for tourists, and it has an excellent public transportation system. Now having reunified with China, Hong Kong is set apart from mainland China thanks to its years of being under the British....

Visiting Japan Part 2: Tokyo

Tokyo is a city that needs no introduction. As a nation, Japan is a country of contrasts and harmony; a technologically advanced nation that is built on centuries of tradition. It is one of the most densely populated nations in the world. In spite of this, it's...

Borobudur in Time Lapse

This was a short film that I put together over a weekend while visiting Borobudur in Indonesia. It's a short two-hour flight from Singapore, and offers just enough to do to fill a weekend. Candi Borobudur is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is the largest Buddhist...

Visiting Japan Part 1: What you need to know

This is the first in a series of articles about travelling to Japan. I had originally planned to write up a single article, but realised very quickly that it was going to become quite large, and that it made sense to break it down into smaller chunks. When I moved to...

A weekend in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur is a stone's throw from Singapore. I'd been planning to check this off my list of Asian destinations. On the weekend of the 7th of January 2017, I had set off on a 24 hour getaway. Kuala Lumpur had not been on the top of my list of destinations. It's not...

Kyoto in Time Lapse

This is the second of two short films that I shot in Japan during my trip there in October 2016, and comes from Kyoto. Japan is a nation of paradoxes. This technologically advanced nation has its culture deeply entrenched in centuries of tradition. No culture does...

A weekend in Borobudur

I'll start out by saying that this this trip is something that I did on a whim, rather than something that I had planned over a long period of time. Having moved to Asia in March 2016, I realised that I now had the opportunity to visit the region with a lot smaller...

Forces of Nature

Flying out of Yogyakarta, my flight flew threw a series of very large storm clouds. I was perhaps fortuitous that it was the blue hour and these clouds were generating lightning. I caught this shot with my iPhone 6S Plus while looking out of the port side window....

Hong Kong 360°

I was up in Hong Kong during the week of October 7th 2016. After three days of meetings and full day workshops, I took a couple of days on the weekend to chill and hang out in Hong Kong. I had a few hours before I had to depart to the airport, and headed across to the...

Maison Libanaise

I'm always on the lookout for good restaurants, especially while travelling. In October 2016, during a work visit to Hong Kong, I'd met up with an old friend of mine. She's a bit of a foodie, and she took me out to this Lebanese place that is halfway up the mid-level...

Making friends in Japan

A few days ago, I was in Tokyo. It was mid-morning, when I'd visited Asakusa. I was shooting time lapse footage outside the Senso-Ji shrine. A young Japanese girl dressed in an elaborate kimono was trying to shoot a portrait of herself with her friend's help. Even...

A thousand Tori gates at sunrise

Sometimes you have to wake up at early to catch on location at the right time. This is especially true for the Fushimi Inari shrine in Kyoto. The location is perhaps best known for one of the iconic scenes in "Memoirs of a Geisha". The path is lined with 1000 Tori...

Flying in to the Land of the Rising Sun

Having caught a red eye flight to Tokyo from Singapore, how appropriate is it that one flies into the Land of the Rising Sun at sunrise?   As an added surprise, my flight flew directly over a volcanic island about 30 minutes outside Narita airport. I'm told that...
