Eid Mubarak @ Geylang Serai!

Hey everyone!

This week, we visited a popular hotspot for our Muslim friends in Singapore, where the festivity carries on into the late hours of the night: the Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar!

The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Bazaar is opened for the whole period of Ramadan (26th May to 24th June this year); it comes alive especially at night, when the Muslims break fast and have their iftar (evening meal). The pasar malam (meaning night market) is packed to the brim with food and drink stalls and other shops selling Hari Raya- related items (over a thousand stalls!), and this gave us a chance to immerse in this festive celebration. Around the pasar malam, there were beautiful light decorations and banners, and so this gave us the chance to revisit our light photography skills and explore Geylang Serai! To this end, we brought along the SLR 680SE and the Petzval Lens to use with our Fujifilm XT-10!

Reviewing the Lomo’Instant Cameras (Instax Mini)!

Hey everyone!

This week we are finally breaching a topic which many Lomography instant film fans and users have been curious but have never been able to find out: comparing the line of Lomo’Instant instax film cameras (excluding the Lomo’Instant Wide camera which uses the instax wide film)! It has been a curious thought in our minds ever since we got our hands on the original Lomo’Instant camera, the Lomo’Instant Automat and the recently-released Lomo’Instant Automat Glass camera!

Of course, Lomography will typically have generic descriptions as to the experience of using their instant film cameras, but our review intends to go deeper than words, and show our readers some of the differences in using the various cameras and their accessories!

Flying High Along MacRitchie TreeTop Walk!

Hey everyone!

This week, we set off on yet another trail-seeking adventure, this time around MacRitchie! The trails around MacRitchie are very popular, and having gone on a public holiday, we were not surprised at the throngs of people ambling along the man-made paths. Nevertheless, we intended to visit the famous MacRitchie TreeTop Walk, which required us to walk over 7 km! Prepared (with our usual mosquito repellent and bottles of water), we headed for the unique walking trail!

Dazzling iLights @ Marina Bay

Hey everyone!

iLights @ Marina Bay has been the night lighting arts festival in Singapore for the last few years, but this was the first time that we were going for the event! The festival was held around the CBD in Singapore, notably around the Marina Promenade and Esplanade. We had the company of Kit Yeng, who was last seen on our website celebrating Chinese New Year @ Chinese Gardens. It was certainly very interesting, although it was pretty crowded (as it was the last weekend when we attended); nevertheless, we sought to enjoy ourselves with a bout of night photography using the Fujifilm X-T10 and the Mint Instantflex!

We Got Nominated for the Liebster Award!

Hey everyone!

It’s been some time since we last posted an entry… two weeks in fact! We have been really busy, but we also did not want to leave our readers hanging! In fact, this week’s entry has been something we have been wanting to share about. In fact if you were astute, you might have noticed a sneaky draft entry being uploaded. It is not photography-related, but it’s about the Liebster Award!

More Exhibitions @ the ArtScience Museum

Hey everyone!

Following from our earlier website entry, the Future World Exhibition, we continue our fascinations with museum! We loooooove going to museums in general, because it gives us a chance to gain knowledge about events and experiences that we normally would not encounter in our daily lives! The ArtScience Museum is one such location which allows us to do so. We attended two exhibitions which is still being hosted there (at the time of this entry): NASA – A Human Adventure and Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder. Here, we brought our dependable cameras, namely the the Fujifilm XT-10 and the Mint Instantflex!

Ambling Along Changi Beach and Coastal Walk

Hey everyone!

This week, we head to the far east of Singapore to explore Changi Beach and the Changi Point Costal Walk, which extends alongside the beach. We chose to utilise the public holiday (of Chinese New Year) to visit a secluded location and take some non-urban photos (which has dominated our website for the past few weeks, admittedly).
