Paris may be known as the world class high fashion, cheese, wine and other luxuries destinations, and it’s also where you can find the oddest and most eccentric shops you could think of. And the best thing is, the shops are not deliberately designed to be quirky… they’re just originally weird. They’ve been there for decades, … Continue Reading

As you know from my previous journals or instagram posts, I’ve been quite a loyal AirBnb user. It has many times saved me from unnecessary hotel splurge whenever I travel, especially on longer period of stay. I still stick to hotels on a one or two night trips (because of the efficiency, 24 hours check-in … Continue Reading

The architecture of the home itself is nearly as fascinating as the artwork.

These presets are my lifesavers! They save me a lot of time during my editing workflow … Continue Reading

These recent years of traveling and journaling has somehow changed the way i use Instagram. Gone is the days when I didn’t have to think about what to post, schedule my posts, strategically style product placement without looking too hard-selling, color-tone my images, and wait for the right time before I can upload the super late post holiday pic … Continue Reading

A photographer (or any artist)’s most common frustration is Self doubt. We’ve all been there. Heck, I suffered it for many many years (and I still doubt myself every single day… just not half as bad as before.) The struggle to perfection, the feeling of insecurity, the seemingly endless quest to create perfect photograph. To be … Continue Reading

For those of you who followed my Instagram, you might know that I’ve spent most of June in Bali for work and the preparation of our Bali office opening. My jobs required me to shift around a bit in Seminyak, Canggu and Jimbaran area; so I just decided to go BnB-hopping in those places. Of … Continue Reading

Paris is never short of wonderful Galleries and Museum, but my favorite is hands down the beautiful yet misterious Galerie de Paléontologie et d’anatomie Comparée (Gallery of Palaeontology and Comparative Anatomy) located in Jardin des Plantes near Gare d’Austerlitz.
