Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (IV)

This is the part we say goodbye to an awesome biking expedition: from stopping at various landmarks at San Francisco bay, to biking till the foot of the bridge, and then across the bridge, to exploring the city of Sausalito, I had so much fun that I forgot to feel tired. From the pier at Sausalito,… Continue reading Biking the Golden Gate Bridge | Part (IV)

Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Friends, I can finally say that I've been to Hong Kong. Cannot believe that for the past 4 - 5 times I've been here for work / holiday, I've never made it up to the highest mountain (1,811 ft) on Hong Kong island!! It was close to 9 p.m. when we dropped Samantha back at our… Continue reading Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

Sydney Opera House

Finally I have a picture at one of Australia's most iconic 20th Century architectural masterpieces. A creative brainchild of architect Jørn Utzon, Sydney Opera House was built by detailed study of its topography and relationship to the harbour plus surrounding land marks. Construction of this grand soaring white roof sails along with its massive red… Continue reading Sydney Opera House

The Secret Rathaus Glockenspiel

Ever wondered what lies behind and inside the famous clock tower of Munich? Well, here's a glimpse! A cafè/pub/restaurant lies within stone-grey walls, hidden away from the world that is watching the fairy stales spin atop the tower's clock. xoxo, Viktoria Jean

Rathaus Glockenspiel, Munich

What comes to mind when you think of Munich? Longchamp and Rimowa!! And well, for me it's the Marienplatz clock tower. This grandeur never fails to give me the chills! My goal next year is to photograph the Rathaus Glockenspiel in Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. So far, I've only done Summer and Autumn. xoxo,… Continue reading Rathaus Glockenspiel, Munich

Travel-diary: Salzach River, Salzburg Austria

Along Makartsteg, a bridge over the Salzach River: It is the 'Pont Neuf' of Salzburg's city centre, where lovers lock down physical embodiments that signify the fidelity of their love. Makartsteg Bridge was named after the 19th century Historicist painter Hans Makart, born and raised in Salzburg, who became famous as a painter of the Viennese… Continue reading Travel-diary: Salzach River, Salzburg Austria

Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

Hello from Moscow! It's been raining a lot when we arrived, unfortunately we chose a damp, drizzly and cold summer day to go to Red Square at the heart of the city. BUT it was pretty much worth it. 80% of the architecture here have that Turkish/Middle Eastern influence, or perhaps it is the other… Continue reading Travel-diary: Red Square, Moscow

hotel mulia senayan May’13

One night in Jakarta without setting foot proper in the capital is a pity, but I was sincerely too sleepy from jet lag and screwed-up cyclical body rhythms to get up from the comfortable bed. Here's to the apparition that is me, that is not quite there in Jakarta. Hugeass room, just me and one… Continue reading hotel mulia senayan May’13

Perth – May’13

Aye aye captain, mission accomplished over the South Atlantic Ocean. Agent Yujin reporting, Over and out! Out in the city of Perth aiming my camera at random and snapping the most mundane shots while sourcing out cafes in the area. A very mind-clearing journey on foot, I have to say. Australia has got some hidden… Continue reading Perth – May’13

sheltering sky

“How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that's so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more. Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps… Continue reading sheltering sky

outside my window

The prettiest sights are almost invariably tainted howbeit calculated efforts to keep our perspectives crystal clear. A willfully affirmed fogged vision. We like what we see, forfeit what we don't. That's human beings for you. Yes, the world's less glorious with your eyes wide open. What's that stuck on your window panes? Maybe you should… Continue reading outside my window
