Singapore Botanic Garden

Located at the heart of concrete jungle, the Singapore Botanic Garden is the green lung for the people to breathe fresh air and have a relaxing weekend. If you like flowers and plants, this is the place for you. It has many different themed gardens with varieties of plant species for you to admire. The park is open to pets as well. I was there for a dog photography project few weeks ago. Unfortunately my outing was cut short by an unexpected rainfall.

Fountain of Wealth @ Suntec

This is the elusive "Fountain of Wealth" at Suntec. Touted the biggest fountain in the world. But it doesn't live up to its name. Everytime when I was there, I did not see any fountain display shows. I couldn't find any show timings as well, not in their website either. My friends have been asking the same question. Then on PC Show last week, I managed to catch all the action; unexpectedly. No announcement whatsoever, the fountain suddenly sprang to life. It caught me by surprise. Looking at the stunned faces of other people, I'm sure they have no idea as well that this fountain is one spectacular dragon once it wakes up.

Recession? What Recession?

The recently concluded PC Show at Suntec just proved that there's a new "species" in Singapore. At times like this, one is expected to tighten the belt and stay at home. But these "species" are different. They are loaded and not affected by the downturn. If there are generations X, Y and Z in this world, then I will call them the generation S. The big spenders. Singapore has got a population of approx 4.8 million. And about 1.2 million turned for the show. That's a quarter of the island's population. Are these people really loaded and not affected by the recession? Or are they just a bunch of "kiasu" people turning up for good bargains and enjoy free air-conds. It seems like Singaporeans have got nowhere else to go. Everytime when there's something big organized, you can expect the whole of Singapore being there. This is madness.

A walk in the park with "Celebrities", V2

It's been a long time since I last had my park outing with the "celebs". The last time was almost 2 years ago. Going out with the "celebs" are like walking down the red carpet. The three hotties sure draw a lot of attention. With them around, you're a superstar. But working with them (taking pictures) is a pain because the divas can't sit still and don't really listen to commands. Well, it's not all bad because compared to local "Ah Lian" dogs, they are friendly and tame. One stupid "Paris Hilton" dog bit me the other day in the lift. Now I'm very against local spoilt and untrained dogs.

This is my first time doing dog photography. Also my first time doing poster/magazine style edits. It really drained my energy as I found out this job is not easy at all. It burned my weekends and even my laptop! Now I have invested in a desktop for more computing power. But I would say it was well worth it. I've learned so much out of it. I'm very satisfied with the work myself.

Introducing our first celebrity, Datin; fondly called as TinTin.
