Family Trip to Japan

I always seem to do my traveling in August. I still vividly remember the time spent in Hawaii last August to attend my friend’s wedding, it unexpectedly turned out to be one of the best vacation ever. And for this August, 6 family members (including me) decided to join a short tour to Japan. The […]

Creative Monday

Gave myself one last day to reminisce the earlier Hawaii vacation by going through the photos in the afternoon.  I do kind of miss seeing the ubiquitous and boundless horizon of the Pacific Ocean and the spontaneous exploration of the Big Island with a couple of newly met friends. Started another 3-month weekly oil painting […]

Back To Reality

Slept at around midnight and woke up at around 6am this morning, still jet-lagging a little I suppose.  Decided to pull myself back to the office today.  Cleared up my email inbox and caught up with my news feeds. Spent my yesterday going through the hundreds of photos I took during the Hawaiian trip, gave […]

August 25th

Something seems to be special about August 25th. It was this day 4 years ago that I moved back from Toronto to HK, and here I am 4 years later waiting for my flight back to HK and putting an end to my awesome Hawaiian vacation. I just can’t seem to escape from the busy, […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 7

Had an amazing day! Actually made a round trip of the Big Island. Stopped by a turquoise water beach, visited a botanical garden, and saw an active volcano crater. And to top it all off, we saw the most breathtaking night sky with countless stars and Milky Way! This trip has unexpectedly turned out to […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 6

Revisited a couple of places down South (Black Sands Beach & Southernmost Point) as I lost all the photos taken there on my previous visit. Glad I went back as I saw sea turtles this time and the sunset was not veiled by clouds. Also visited the Green Sands Beach for the first time with […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 5

Played the part of an amateur wedding photographer for my friend, find it rather difficult to capture people’s split-second expressions. I did try my best to capture as many smiles as I possibly could, and there were quite a few sweet genuine smiles I saw through the camera’s eyepiece. Happy to be able to witness […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 4

Went to the Punaluu Black Sand Beach in the afternoon and tried capturing some powerful wave action with my camera. Then drove to the southernmost point of the island just before sunset. Spent quite some time there to capture the breathtaking view of the boundless Pacific Ocean. The drive back in the dark was a […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 3

Finished reading the camera manual, finally started exploring the island and practice what I’ve learnt about shutter speed, aperture, exposure,… Hit the beach (Hapuna Beach) in the afternoon. Then decided to get to the Northernmost point of the island before sunset, but drove passed it without knowing. Accidentally ended up at the Pololu Valley Lookout, […]

Hawaii Trip – Day 2

Slept like a baby last night, it was probably the best quality of sleep I’ve had in recent years! Even without an alarm, I woke up early and enjoyed a relaxing complimentary breakfast at the hotel. Took a short walk behind the hotel after breakfast, I was surprised to find a great variety of exotic […]
