Toronto Subway Photos

Photos taken last year in the Toronto subway – part of the “Subway” photo book, a Ryerson University project.

By using a small HQ camera I was able to capture moments in time and emotions without intrusion and preserving the surprise factor most of the time.

Arriving in Kuala Lumpur from Bangkok, the first impressions are of a quieter and cleaner city, with palm trees lining the streets and people walking in a leisurely pace.

  • What impressed me the most? The Petronas Twin Towers and the Batu Caves!
  • What surprised me? The night life in the streets of Jalan Alor: street food and music bands
  • What’s funny? The KL Monorail: you never know what to expect!
  • What I tried? Blue rice and stingray!
  • What I got? Food poisoning from mussels…

Let’s tell the story through Images. Read More

What’s different, new and surprising for a foreigner in Bangkok in short stories and photos. Read More

Finally I did it! From a large variety of insects, worms, frogs, bugs and other alien looking creatures I tried three varieties here in Bangkok, under my own will and being in the right state of mind: fried frogs, bamboo and wood worms!

A certain quantity of Hong Thong (Thai spirits) helps.

Read the tasting review, and, if have a chance, try a little bug next time! Read More

The News

I am back in Bangkok, after days of intensive travel to Hua Hin and River Kwai in Thailand, to Pakse area and waterfalls in Laos and to Ko Lipe Island in the Andaman Sea.

Busy itineraries, an injury, lack of internet connection and romance in between prevented me to post new stories to the blog.

The photos are piling up, hundreds at a time. The process of selecting the best photos from almost 4,000 is tedious and takes a lot of time.

In Laos I hurt my left leg (ligament rupture). I am still recovering. Despite this, the search for adventure, romance and enlightenment continues! Read More

Or Why I travel?

First of all, let me give a big sigh. This is the fifth time I re-write the opening paragraph. I’d blame on my fever I just got as a souvenir in this not-so-cold season in Beijing.

I just flew back from Seoul, a city full of crazy shopping malls that open almost 24 hrs. per day. Before this, I was travelling in Taiwan for roughly two months. Actually this is the first time for me going on a half a year trip. My travel routine usually ranges from one week to one month. Read More

Bangkok street photography: city, people, faith, food, night life and fun photos with a story.

Black and Red

Bangkok at night reminds me of the “Sin City” neo-noir movie without the violence: the suspended highways right through the city, the sound of sirens, the strange-looking skyscrapers with a hint of gothic, the shanty places, the red light neon signs and the ladies of the night, the stray dogs and stray people in dark alleys.

EVA Air

Flying for the first time with the Taiwanese EVA Airlines was a pleasant surprise. Everything is done with the customer in mind, starting with the service and ending with the branding.

EVA Air Stewardesses

The cute, mignon stewardesses were running up and down the aisles in beautiful dark cyan uniforms. When there was time for serving the meals, they will wear pastel coloured aprons. “Watch out! The cart is coming!” Read More

Travelling to Japan, you cannot stop noticing the difference between Japanese and Western signage. The signs in Japan can be cartoonish, funny, blunt and creative. But they do attract the attention of the intended target, both children and adults.

Here are the funniest 20 signs spotted throughout Japan, from Tokyo to Kyoto to Okinawa. Enjoy, comment and share! Read More
