Cheers to another Sunday!
Weather in Seoul today is late Spring: chilly and drizzling. Yesterday was a pleasure as the sun was out and shining. Tropical me still misses the heat, especially when I’ve stayed through the whole Winter, and the blues were getting to me.
My second film project started off with a walk around my old neighborhood one day, where I coincidentally skipped school and thought I would stay in. The snow got me out of the house with my disposable film in hand, and here I am, able to share nature’s beauty.
Next, I was on a day trip to Busan on the first weekend of the year with Liyana!
And time passed so fast, it was already my Graduation Ceremony in February.
Dad is looking adorable.
And my Brother who stole my certificate.
I’m not sure what content I can come up with next, but I’m trying to brainstorm for more projects I can commit to. Not going to lie, I’ve been struggling in my daily grind without anything creative.
We shall see.
Life will work out.
Just keep going.
I set myself up for two creative projects last Fall/Winter, so I went ahead to get two disposable cameras. I think film allows you to capture the moment much better than a digital, because you know there’s ‘no going back.’ I also felt like I’ve lived my moments in all these pictures.
This is definitely one of my favorite ↑
A backstory was one of my friend, Anh wanted to fly a kite for the first time and it was more challenging than expected. Everyone around us were flying kites successfully as the winds casted them away into the clouds, while we struggle with taking flight.
p/s. We still made it in the end!
I also made it to Fashion Week S/S 2018. Not the best idea to have a disposable film camera, since nothing could be captured. But the fashion buzz were a pleasure.
The only successful shot to my Chuseok adventures at Alice: Into the Rabbit Hole.
Trying my first shot on my birthday, exploring Seoul 7017.
Snippets of my college life.
Taking Literature courses in my last semester was an eye-opener. Never have I felt more motivated to get to class everyday at 9am.
Fall was a blast.
Just another visit to my hideout.
Streets near my last apartment.
I’ve been feeling empty lately. How are you feeling?
If you’re into Astrology, you would know that we are in the Mercury Retrograde season, and I’m actually enjoying the “slower-speed” together with the throwback of the past. I’ve been going back to my past hobbies that I’ve placed aside due to college. Now that I’ve graduated and working, responsibilities starts to kick in and everyday seems like a toll, while the weekends goes by like the wind.
There was an article somewhere about the benefits of baking for people, in which it reflects the practice of mindfulness. No wonder why I’ve always baked for people while I was back home, with all my equipments at hand. I did not enjoyed eating what I’ve baked, but I was thriving in the process of it.
And I’m guessing photo or video editing is one of my replacement past time to baking. Let me just select specific songs, put some clips and adjust the colors to the vibes that I enjoy, etc. The end products makes me feel good, while I upload it online, but the process of perfecting it to my standard is satisfying.
Well, I dug up my Hong Kong & Macau videos from two years ago, and finally created my vlog that I failed to deliver then.
Not the best, but I’ve definitely enjoyed the process!

Winter in HK & MACAU
Day 7+8 in Hong Kong
January 24-25, 2016
We spent Day 7 at Stanley Bay after lunch, also our final travelling day in HK. And we got up early the next day and flew home!
I really like this picture below ↓
Last but not least, how could I ever not take pictures of huge standalone trees?
Happy Valentines Day!!
Sorry, I was late in posting this. I spent my Lunar New Year in the countryside of Malaysia, where my mum’s hometown is located, which also means no internet. It is actually a yearly tradition that my family has, and something I have always appreciated throughout my whole life. Here we go!
Day 5+6 in Macau
January 22 – 23, 2016
So the next few days of my trip was spent with my paternal Aunt and Uncle, who took us to Macau! (via a boat ride, which got me super dizzy)
Checked into Sheraton, which is probably me and my brother’s first time in an upscale hotel, and explored around later. Still, the weather was cloudy and wet. It was just a bad week hahahahahahaha.
This is The Venetian: Venice-themed luxury resort and casino. It was always a dream that I want to visit Venice, Italy one day but a Venice-themed glimpse of it still made me really happy.
Forgot to mention that the first thing after we settled in our hotel was getting the famous Portuguese Egg Tarts. Off we go to Taipa Village for some Portuguese food!
January 23, 2016
Woke up early the next day and had breakfast! Then we move on to Ruins of Saint Paul, that connects to the Macau Peninsula area.
The interior of the St. Lazarus Church that we visited while we were on toilet break.
And we also researched last night which tourist attraction will we be interested in and settled on The Grand Prix Museum located nearby.
Finally, we ended off with a visit to the MGM Hotel to check out the architecture.
Day 3+4 in Hong Kong
January 20 – 21, 2016
These two days was spent with my local friend, Joyce! Who brought us around and ate a lot of fooooooooooood. (Which will be included in the vlog I’ll be editing soon) Despite the cloudy, windy and rainy weather, it was probably a more unique experience.
On the 3rd day, we went to the Hong Kong Wetland Park (香港濕地公園), which we took every possible public transportation, which was pretty cool! However, the weather was really bad that the Wetland Park wasn’t on par with the pictures online. A little disappointing.
The 4th day was spent at Ocean Park (香港海洋公園). Me and my Brother took the exact rollercoaster I took with my Dad 10 years ago. It was my first time taking the rollercoaster 10 years ago, and I zoned out for 2 days after. This time, I think I zoned out for 2 hours. Hahahahahahaha too funny. No more other rides after the rollercoaster, as we roamed around looking at animals. Probably getting too old for amusement parks.

Day 1+2 in Hong Kong
January 18-19, 2016
The first time I travelled to Hong Kong was exactly 10 years ago, which was also the furthest country I’ve ever been to in my record history. Coming back to this place didn’t felt new, but was actually a little more comfortable.
Moreover, it was my first time flying with a friend, first time travelling with my brother, and also spending this much time with my paternal aunt and uncle, whom I must say that our relationship were not the closest. I am actually really glad to spend some time and got to know them better through this trip!
My first day was practically just a day to get to HK, check into the hotel and try to get as much as sleep as possible for the following day. My brother came in the next day, where I went to the airport to pick him up. The only place we were at for the second day was Causeway Bay, where we were enjoying all the tram rides to-and-fro.
