On 26 December 2019, Singapore (and many parts of Asia) witnessed one of many rare moments to happen to our fateful planet: an annular solar eclipse! A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between the rotation of the Earth and the sun, resulting in the moon “blocking” out the Sun for a brief moment.

During the holiday season, Sandra visited the northernmost island of Japan, Hokkaido! The second-largest island in Japan is basically a snow paradise in winter, and as a Singaporean who do not see any four seasons, she was excited to be able to see and touch snow!

We recently got our hands on a modified Instant Wide film back made for Mamiya Universal Press (MUP) lens! Using a Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 camera, the camera modifier had hacked out the lens and replaced it with a 3D-printed adapter for MUP lenses. We had a somewhat unpleasant experience with a previous camera modifier who was unable to replicate the same setup without encountering issues such as light leaks, and naturally, we were cautiously optimistic about this modified camera.

Back in July 2019, we had the opportunity to travel to Cyprus, a simply beautiful country situated on an island in the East Mediterranean Sea. Our friends there had recommended us to explore the whole of Cyprus (which comprises the Republic of Cyprus and Northern Cyprus), which we attempted in 8 days. This included a trip to Northern Cyprus, an area making up 36% of the north and eastern part of the island, which has been occupied by Turkey since 1974. We could not pass on this opportunity and so we rented a car and planned a short 2 day 1 night trip to Northern Cyprus.
Do note that this is PART I of a two-part series covering Northern Cyprus! If you have already read this post, do head on to PART II to read the rest of our travel itinerary!
