As I had written in the first entry of the year, one of the projects that I have the honour of being a part of this year is Basically.

 

We are a pretty new team that consists of people from different industries coming together with the common purpose of finding ways in using their various expertise and disciplines to create social awareness and to give back to the community.

 

The first instalment, Basically, 01, was held at Broun Cafe last October and we invited a landscape artist, the Havana Brown Quartet, Roxie J and D’fusion, film-makers and Nick Chim as part of our line-up. If you’re interested in how a landscape artist fits into the picture, take a look here, I have great respect for what he does. Film-makers Jeremy Boo and Lee Xian Jie talked about their documentary “Before we Forget”, their focus and inspiration of which I found really touching.

 

Basically, 02 is happening on Friday, 24Feb, and admission is free!!! Look at the event page and click “ATTENDING”. I’ll still be in Africa when that is happening but I assure you that it will be well worth your time.

 

And just to prove it (brace yourselves), here are some photos I took from Basically, 01. We have a video too that’s on the way which I will link as soon as I can!

I miss the rains down in Africa…

PinExt I miss the rains down in Africa... traveler journaling

At this very moment, I am (or should be) packing furiously for my trip to South Africa!

 

I’m excited because it’s my first long vacation in this scale in eons!!! Sure, I’ve taken short trips here and there (mostly tagged with work trips too), but nothing beats flying far, far away to somewhere that is entirely unfamiliar and immersing yourself in the people, places and culture there.

 

Travel has become integral to me as a photographer. Think of it, like a refreshing of the eyes, almost like Paul on the road to Damascus, where scales fall off and everything becomes clear. Too dramatic? To be honest that is what it feels like for me. Being exposed to the urban jungle day in and day out, and no matter how much you tell yourself that opportunities are lying around waiting for you to find, it becomes easy to feel increasing contempt for the routine. Therefore, I get easily addicted to the exhilaration of seeing things like a tourist, through “new eyes”, where everything is a wonder, and possibilities are endless.

 

A multitude of images from South Africa are to be expected, but in the meantime, here are some photos taken from previous travels, see if you can identify where they were taken! I will also attempt to schedule another post to be released while I’m on holiday. Never had much luck with scheduled posts but it is a good time to try!

Valentines’ Schmalentines

Here I am, sharing some love.

 

Cynics might call it Singles Awareness Day, 9gag calls it Forever Alone Day.

 

But I still believe that there is enough love to go around.

 

I may be called a fool to like celebrating a day designed as a marketing and retail playground, but I celebrate it mainly because it never is a bad thing to be reminded of and to cherish the people you love.

 

And because this is a photography blog, and I am in the business of love, the following are the obligatory past photos of Valentines past.

 

Have a great one!
