Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways


It hasn’t been long since my last entry for the weekly photo challenge due to me being TRULY delayed and everything but this time I am on schedule (lol)

This week’s theme is “One shot, Two ways”, which means that the photographer has to take a photo in both a horizontal and vertical view. My entry this week was taken during my trip to Melbourne with my family early this year. When my sister and I visited the State Library of Victoria, I had taken a photo of the “La Trobe Reading Room”. The layout of the room was just breathtaking, and to think that it was found in the actual library is truly amazing.

So, hope you all enjoyed this entry and I’ll see you all next week!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Hi guys! Firstly, I have to apologise since I didn’t do a post for the photo challenge last week. It was just too busy for me and I didn’t get a chance to go out and find “inspiration”. I figured that since I was inspired to take anything last week, then there was no point to taking part of the challenge. And to be honest, my idea for the theme didn’t really work out since my actual “companion” doesn’t exactly exist anymore… So yeah, so sorry about that ><

Anyway, this week’s theme is “The Golden Hour” – the first and last hour of sunlight of the day. Below is a photo that I had taken on my Melbourne trip during the beginning of the year(I took a lot, I know ><) This was when the sun had started to set over Melbourne. I was back in my hotel room getting changed to go out with the family for dinner since the sun started to set at around 8 at night! The quality is, yes, terrible but the photo itself I believe was so beautiful.

The sunlight felt amazing. Sadly, the window couldn't open so I couldn't take a better photo ><

Day 26: Only 10???!! But, but, I have more :(

Day 26: Name 10 places you would like to visit?

Hello everyone!!! Today’s question is quite nice I believe because travelling the world is definitely something that I want to do in the future once I am capable. Also, I would love to share the experience with the special people around me 🙂 LET’S BEGIN!!

Yes, yes it is.

Yes, yes it is.

Yes, let's!!

Yes, let’s begin!!

The places (in no particular order):

1. China (preferably Tianjin and Beijing): Tianjin is my parent’s home town, so I really want to visit and see where they lived. Beijing because it is, after all, the country’s capital but also because there is so much history there too (I am very passionate about history if it isn’t obvious yet ><)

2. South Korea (Seoul): South Korea is a MUST for me (if this blog isn’t obvious enough…) but the main thing is that I want to experience life in Korea, and indulge myself in its culture. And um *ahem* stalk sexy Korean boys *ahem*

3. The United States of America (ALL AROUND!!!): Everywhere. I just want to travel across the states because well, why not?

4. France (Paris): To see their history, duh…and eat their food [wait for me frog legs ;)]

5. Japan (Tokyo and Kyoto and…and…anywhere that sells sashimi): I am a raw fish addict. Give me sashimi any day (if I can afford it of course ><)

6. Germany (everywhere): Their history fascinates me. It is one of my lifelong goals to visit Auschwitz so, I must travel to Germany in order to fulfil it.

7. Canada (Montreal and other places): My French teacher in high school has made a very lovely image of Canada in my head, and I really want to visit. The only worry I have is, will it be really cold? I hope not because I can’t cope with cold weather 😦

8. England (London and other places): I have to see Big Ben with my own eyes. James Bond has convinced me to do so for many years hehe

9. Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh City and other places): Food, and the culture. Also, I have relatives who were born and grew up there.

10. The rest of Australia: I have only ever been to Melbourne, and it was only for a couple of days. Once I get the chance, I would love to visit again and stay longer. Also, I would love to visit other states around Australia, especially Tasmania – the little state down under 🙂

If only I can...*sigh*

If only I can…*sigh*

Okay, that’s it for today. There are plenty more places that I would really love to visit, but since the question asks 10, here they are. Thanks for reading everyone, and I will talk with you all very soon~~

Weekly Photo Challenge: Curves

Hello again peoples! This week’s theme is “curves”. I was thinking of doing something more  related to nature but I came across this photo. I thought to myself “Yeah, it seems related” so, here you go. Curves that is commonly seen in my day-to-day life.

When I went to Melbourne at the beginning of the year with the family, we met plenty more relatives during our visit. Plenty of food was served, and the photo below was placed on our table in just five minutes!!! So much food was eaten and tried (OMG! If I ever go back, this is the place to visit!), and the photo really demonstrates the beauty of curves. If you replaced all of the cups, bowls etc with square-shaped ones, I think the feel of the place would have been ruined.

Mmmmmm..yum-cha *drool* TAKE ME BACK MUM, TAKE ME BACK!

Mmmmmm..yum-cha *drool* TAKE ME BACK MUM, TAKE ME BACK!



Hope you all appreciate the picture (don’t get too hungry) and I’ll come back next week with a more worthy attempt >< Love you all and I’ll see you soon~~
