Are You a Social Media “Porn” Star?

We are living in the age of “porn”. And most of it has very little to do with sex.

Unlike the more salacious kind, such “porn” are usually completely safe for families and kids. Unfortunately, like their more notorious namesake, such behaviours could be addictive. Carried to extremes, they can be unhealthy for one’s mental and physical well-being.

In fact, some of us are so obsessive compulsive about capturing and sharing every waking moment that we end up suffering cold turkey if our Digital Documenting & Distribution Devices (4Ds) go haywire or are wrangled away from us!

What are the kinds of “porn” that we are talking about?

…then imagine how the driver of this vehicle would feel like. Perhaps its a good way to save money on parking fees? Or to test one’s stunt driving skills…


Took this shot from a bus as I was on my way home with my trusty Panasonic Lumix LX-3 (the same camera I used for my US holiday shots).

The Sky Has Fallen!!

Took this photo sometime in December last year from my regular bus stop. Very atypical of a hot tropical island like Singapore and I remembered how chilly the weather was then. Effects of climate change perhaps?

Of course those days are long gone, and the weather has turned blazingly hot nowadays and suffocating even. Time to give up my car?

Shot this from a cab a couple of months ago. Its human nature to wait, regardless of your situation or circumstances.

William Troy Taylor’s wedding-inspired masterpiece at the Singapore Garden Festival.

What are the secret ingredients behind a successful show able to attract the masses and become the talk of the town?

Merry Christmas dear visitors! Hope to add some yule-tide cheer with some greenery here.

I was recently invited for the Singapore Garden Festival as part of the delegation from the Association of Singapore Attractions. Despite only having an hour-and-a-half to do a whirlwind tour, I was left gushing after the amazing experience. The National Parks Board has done many things right this time around for the festival.

Here are some highlights of the show for the benefit of those who missed it.
