This week, we discuss about one of our favourite cameras (I know, we have so many favourite ones); the Polaroid Land Camera! People have been asking us about our newest addition(s), so we decided to share our perspective and thoughts on the old-fashioned but fully-functioning instant Polaroid camera!
This week, we have decided to share another of Singapore’s lesser-known gems and heritage, using one of our favourite mediums; the 35mm film! Although this week has been dedicated to #HolgaWeek, we do not own any Holga cameras. Hence, our camera of choice for this trip to the middle of Singapore is the White Superheadz Ultra Wide and Slim. This camera is commonly known as the toy wide angle point and shoot film camera (special thanks to Sandra’s sister for letting us use it)!
For those long-time readers who’s been with us since our beginning, you might remember a certain entry about our trip along the Southern Ridges:
Well, we made good on our promise to continue the trail (albeit not along the Southern Ridges per se) and headed to Labrador Nature Reserve to complete our adventure at the southernmost point of Singapore! The southern tip of Singapore is mostly known as home to shipping ports, Vivocity and Sentosa, but Labrador Nature Reserve boasts a rich heritage dating back to our founding days!
Playgrounds are familiar places for us growing up, and Singapore certainly does not lack any! One can expect to find a playground consisting of slides, swings, see-saws, trazpee rings and climbers in any neighbourhood. However, there are some playgrounds in Singapore built in the 1970s that remain iconic and reflect an older generation of non-technology bound kids who run around playing catch, hide and seek and police-and-thief.
So we’ve been spending the past three weeks describing (in some detail) our Taiwan trip (you can see the entries here, here and here). This week we return to our adventures in the sunny (note: very sunny) island of Singapore; this week’s place of interest will surely ring a bell (and even tug the heartstrings) of Singaporean everywhere!
The Underwater World at Sentosa was opened in the early 1990s, and was one of Singapore’s popular attractions. The 28-hectare oceanarium housed over 2,500 different marine animals during its lifetime. We both remembered visiting the Underwater World back in our primary school days, and as young, curious adolescents we were enthralled by the numerous sea creatures on display!
