The Haze

I had heard about it. I had read about it. I had never really seen or experienced it myself. One of the reasons that I chose to move to Singapore as a destination in Asia was because it offered a generally clean and unpolluted atmosphere. Every year, that changes for...

Singaporean Skies

This has been in the works for a few months. When I moved here in March 2016, it was my 21st time in Singapore (I used to stop here in each direction every time I used to fly to India). Prior to my moving here, I had spent approximately 50 days in this city spread...

The Melbourne Star

This has been several years in the making. The Melbourne Star is now a major Melbourne tourist attraction. It didn't get off to the best of starts, after developing micro-fractures during the heatwave of 2008 that required it to be torn down and rebuilt from scratch....

An evening around Marina Bay

A short film shot around Marina Bay in Singapore. Singapore is one of the safest cities in the world, which makes it a great place to hang out with a heap of photography gear late at night. Most of this film was shot on a single evening, with a few clips shots during...

Nerd culture in Singapore

I can fit into this place! Singapore definitely has a nerd culture, and is proud of it! It is not entirely surprising. The Lion City has gone through a series of phases of reinvention over the last few decades. In the absence of any natural resources, it had become a...

Grocery shopping made easy

Grocery shopping is one of those things that must be done in life, but is not the most enjoyable of chores. . When I discovered the ultimate online grocery store for Singaporean residents, I was all over it. RedMart is an online grocery store that will deliver...

Big Fish at Tanglin Village

As part of my relocation package with my employer, the relocation company assigned an agent to show me around Singapore for a few places that may be of interest. One of the places that really stood out to me was Tanglin Village. I'll write a more thorough write-up...

Online takeaway delivered!

As a busy professional, I sometimes just do not have the time to put a meal together. In Singapore, there is an awesome food delivery service called Deliveroo. There app is available on the app stores for both iOS and Android. Based on your delivery location, they’ll...

The Singapore Aquarium

This is a home video made from short clips shot during a visit to the Singapore Aquarium on Sentosa Island. This is definitely a destination that is worth paying a visit to. The aquarium is huge and would take an entire day to truly take in. Get there early, break for...

Cab rides in Singapore

I made a pleasant discovery during my first two weeks here in Singapore about cab rides. You can actually ride cabs for free every now and then! Singapore has several major taxi companies. Their vehicles can be identified by the colour of their livery. The major ones...

Renting a home in Singapore

Like all countries, there is a process to renting properties in Singapore. In 2016, the rental market had cooled as part of a natural adjustment to a large number of developments having been built to cater for forecast demand that didn’t quite grow as quickly as...

Scenes from the Singapore MRT

Coming from Melbourne and living in the inner city, I’ve never really used the train system. I lived in the free tram zone and got around easily on trams whenever I commuted, or drove whenever it was a little farther off. Life in Singapore is a bit different. For a...

Arriving in Singapore: First impressions

I'm here! Courtesy of an 8-hour flight on Qantas Airlines QF35, I have touched down in my new home (at least for the next couple of years). It's different from being a tourist. I now have to familiarise myself with things like medical clinics, post offices, banks, and...

Cape Schanck

Cape Schanck is about an hour and a half from the Melbourne CBD, and is easy to get to. The Cape has two main drawcards - its lighthouse, and perhaps more dramatic, Pulpit Rock. Pulpit Rock is an igenous monolith that stands off the edge of the coast. It is separated...

Cape Woolamai

Cape Woolamai is a good 2 hours drive from the Melbourne CBD, and is technically not in Melbourne, but just outside it. It's a popular surfing beach, but it is also a spectacular location for landscape photography. At the tip of the cape are the Pinnacles - a set of...

Docklands (Winter Fireworks)

Every year, the City of Melbourne puts on a bit of a show for its residents in the form of winter fireworks. What started off as Fireworks in July has now become a two month show every Friday at 7p.m. throughout July and August. The event is free and is family...
