TAIWAN | Our Adventure in the Land of Bubble Tea & Shilin Chicken

Hey everyone,

Last week, we took off on an epic journey to Taiwan, the land of good food and great scenery! We travelled with Damian’s friends (Patrick, Clive and Angela), and it was Sandra’s first time to Formosa (the name given to Taiwan during a short-lived Japanese occupation). We stayed in Taipei but travelled out, and our adventure will be described in greater detail in our next few entries!

“Treasures of the World” at the National Museum

Hey there!

So we discovered that the British Museum in London was showcasing some of the oldest exhibits and artefacts from all over the world (hence, the titular name “Treasures of the World”) at the oldest museum in Singapore, the National Museum (how apt)!

Hiking at Lower & Upper Peirce!

Hey everyone!

This week, we cover our hike through the heart of Singapore (literally), at two scenic reservoirs, namely the Upper Peirce and Lower Peirce Reservoir. These neighbouring reservoirs serve as water catchment areas, and form part of the network of the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. Further, the flora and fauna surrounding the reservoirs provide a natural setting for visitors and hikers alike! We had the benefit and guidance of Sandra’s close friend, Sarah, to lead us in this naturalistic adventure around some of Singapore’s oldest reservoirs!

Ushering in the Lunar New Year at Chinese Gardens

Since Chinese New Year is just around the corner (literally less than a few hours away; yay to ang baos), we decided to pay a visit to one of Singapore’s remarkable but lesser known heritage sites, the Chinese and Japanese Gardens! Joining us for the first time on our photography adventure was Sandra’s friend, Kit Yeng, who is also a photography enthusiast like us!

Chinatown- Mooncake Festival Lights 2015

The time for the traditional Chinese Mooncake Festival has arrived (and gone haha)!

On 2nd October, we decided to make a trip to Chinatown to enjoy some of the Mooncake Festival lightings by going on a photography adventure! Together with Sandra’s best friend, SK, we took some photos with the Lomo Instant Camera.

Here are some of our favourite shots taken (which was scanned)! Some did not turn out the way we envisioned, but we are very thrilled with most of the shots in any case.
