This Pair of Photos Are One Year Old

Which says a lot about my tardiness.

Or maybe it’s just a personal choice as I believe photos age like fine wine.

LomoTravels: Revival Venice Day 2 / Of Torcello, Burano and St. Mark’s Square

The alarm went off. Eyes opened. First thing out of bed was to ruffle the curtain drapes and peer out the window.

Still raining.

Dammit.

Nevertheless, we decided to push on with our plan to visit the neighboring islands Torcello and Burano. Who knows, maybe by the time we reached, the weather would have improved.

After an hour of traveling which involved transferring from one vaporetta to another, we finally reached the shores of Torcello. At this time, the rain was falling even more heavily. And the winds. The piercing winds!!

Compounding the depressing weather was the virtually empty streets as local vendors were all holed up at home while tourists that were as hardcore/foolish as us were far and few.

LomoTravels: Reliving Rome Day 2 / Tourist 1 Pickpocket 0

Happiness is waking up to the smell of fresh toast and an assortment of bread, ham, yogurt and juices.

Enlightenment is realizing that oranges are not only orange in color but red too. Yes, it’s true and they are called blood oranges!

Knowledge +1!

LomoTravels: Gorging Ourselves in Ipoh + Penang

A trip made possible by our dear friend, Darwin who as a proud Ipohian (or Ipohnese?) finally got the chance to show us the glory of his hometown. Actually, we just nagged him into submission and tagged along on one of his trips back home.

Ten Courts of Hell

Here is the 2nd round of photos taken at Haw Par Villa, specifically at one of their main attraction, the Ten Courts of Hell. According to Chinese mythology, those who have sinned (such as cheating, lying, murder, etc.) during their lifetime, will be judged in the courts of hell and punished according to the gravity of their sins.

And boy, those punishments are creatively gruesome, making it the perfect foil for parents to warn their kids about the consequences of bad behavior. And yes I grew up with all these stories, which most of the other Chinese kids did too, living in fear of getting thrown into the deep frying wok in our afterlife.

All pictures were taken on the Lomo Redscale 100 film using the LC-A+ RL.

Oh Nicholl

As the dust settles after a potentially game-changing day for Singapore, it is time for our lives to resume normalcy. Personally it opened my eyes to a whole load of things. A better understanding of the history of Singapore and the people who strove doggedly in the pursuit of their beliefs. Well, I better stop right here before this turns into a political ranting or preaching. Let’s make way for my outdated photos taken around Nicholl Highway MRT. (Why am I not surprised if somebody starts a Facebook page called “Let’s rename Nicholl Highway to Nicole Seah Highway <3”)

What was I doing there? I was actually on my way to Stadium MRT to collect my computer from Acer Service Centre. I must have said this before but I feel the need to say this again.

Do. Not. Ever. Buy. Acer.

I hardly ever take the Circle Line, let alone alight at any of the stops along it. So I decided to alight and check out CC5 out. Photos were taken mostly with Superheadz UWS on Lomo Redscale film with a dash of Diana Mini on Kodak ISO 400 expired negative. Note that the quality of pics are not so fantastic as explained in my previous post. For the redscale pics, I had to flip some of them horizontally to show the correct orientation.

#1 Here I am. CC5. Call me a recluse/hermit/sua gu. It’s my 1st time here.

concourse

#2Interesting building which I have no idea what it was. That is until I checked the Internet. For those as ignorant as me, this is The Concourse. Repeat after me. Con-cou-rse.

traffic counter

#3 Next up. This genius of a device displaying how many parking spaces are available around the vicinity.

#4 The station is right next to Kallang Basin. I seem to recall seeing those prominent condos in the backdrop from way back in Secondary school. Oh yea and I remember having to put up Army Half marathon signboards around the park. Sai gang FTW.

#5 Lucas Di Grassi who? Ermm I’m guessing F1 driver… urmmm Brazilian… and… ermm.. male. Sorry this is the best I can do.

# 8 Not very such what architecture structure this is. Seems to be part of MBS.. Looks like a snail shell in real life though. Maybe to complement the upcoming Gardens by the Bay.

flyer

#9 The customary flyer shot. I took a few but this is my fave. Just got a feel to it.

Pretty fun experience overall. A quiet afternoon spent making new discoveries. Too bad for the film quality. Going down to Triple D tomorrow to develop more films. Hopefully I’ll get to update sooner rather than later.

Last but not least Happy Mother’s Day to all wonderful mothers out there.

And no. This is not a thinly veiled attempt to hit on any MILFs.
