Travelling Without Moving

“I know all we’re doing is travelling without moving…Can’t stop, no…Speed freak, faster than a speedin’ bullet…Slow down…If I don’t I just might lose it…”– Jamiroquai This post title is actually a song (and an album title) written by a band called Jamiroquai.  The lead singer of that band created the album at a time when his love for sports cars eventually reached its…

Taipei in Postcards

Hi there.  Like everyone these days, I take the time to rekindle the flames of inspiration and remember why we love doing the things that we do.  If you’re like me who loves to move around and take photos, then you are stuck at the moment.  One of my favorite photographers (Joe McNally) suggested that now is a time to go back to and…

101 Eastbound

I almost gave up all hopes of taking good photos after I saw the weather forecast showing a week of rainfall in Taipei.  Surprisingly, we had good weather the whole time since we arrived here.  Weather is really unpredictable in Taipei. 🙂  I also did not know what to expect or see here (other than Taipei 101 of course) but this city turned out…

From High Above to Down Under

I am not sure why I came about with the title of this post except maybe because it sounded so Australian which is connected to this recent Winter holiday in Melbourne.  Or more accurately, I realised that I have focused on East Asian and Southeast Asian countries (those countries on top or above Australia) since I started travelling.  This is due to their nearness…

South Korea: Season 2

I am about to experience my second winter this year.  This time (that’s next week) in Melbourne, Australia and probably a third one this December in Taipei, Taiwan.  I was just thinking of how the world is so amazing that you can experience the same beautiful season more than once in a year and in different places (or all the four seasons in a…

Finding Sydney

“So I say a little prayer and hope my dreams will take me there Where the skies are blue to see you once again, my love Over seas from coast to coast to find the place I love the most Where the fields are green to see you once again, my love” A client once told me that if I happen to step into…

Anything Under The Sun

Anything under the sun.  Well at least that is how I remember or describe Abu Dhabi.  It seems like anything is possible here.  Dubai may be the most popular of all the Emirates in the UAE but Abu Dhabi is still the capital; and it has several reasons for being so.  As one travel guide puts it, Abu Dhabi is not afraid to challenge…

My Tokyo Blues

This is one example of those late melancholic posts.  I finally had the chance to see Tokyo a second time last Winter.  The first time was way back in the Autumn of 2013 when I was invited by a major Japanese furniture manufacturer to attend a 3-day convention.  Since then, I always remember Tokyo as a cold city (my first encounter with the outside…

From Tokyo to the Bay

“…a thousand miles from comfort…there’s no place I’d rather be…”–Clean Bandit This is where it all started.  The first time I saw Japan was way back in November 2013.  I was invited by a major Japanese furniture manufacturer to attend a convention in Tokyo.  It was a 3-day event with a 2-day extension for us to do anything we want.  It was my first…
