It was an amazing and relaxing holiday!
Most of the other vacations I had were joining a travel tour, trying to capture as many beautiful shots of the places and absorbing as much “information” about the places (which I forget 90% of it after a few months or even weeks).
This holiday is different. It was a self-drive holiday to Langkawi and Penang from 21st – 28th July, 2014.
Of course we did not miss the classical tourist attractions, but we spent much time just to enjoy a swim in the sea or in the hotel’s pool, find some interesting eating places where we could devour the food plus chat about anything and everything.
The following shot was taken by Wynne. I love it because of the relax atmosphere depicted here.
I also managed to capture a beautiful sunset shot. A clean and pure shot of the sun and the waves. Continue reading
33 Unbelievable Places To Visit
God has created an amazing planet earth. Some of the most beautiful places here could make you breathless when you see them. There is no other alternative but to travel around and see them with your own eyes. Travel has always been my first choice of spending my free time and affordable money (if I have some).
I came across these 33 photos of beautiful places on this planet earth. Some of them I have seen them, like the amazing “Avatar Tianzi mountain” in zhangjiajie, China, the Reed Flute Cave in Guilin, China and the Pamukkale hot spring in Turkey. However there are still 30 others I have not seen.
I hop you enjoy these photos as much as I do.

Salar De Uyuni, Bolivia
During the rainy season, the world’s largest salt flat becomes the world’s largest mirror. The Salar was born when several prehistoric lakes joined into one. The salt flat is so reflective, it’s used to calibrate satellites.
I have been trying to learn photography, not so much I want to take professional-looking photos to impress others, it’s more that I want to take reasonably good pictures family activities, church events and my holidays. However, I always find it hard to pick up my camera. Time is such a scarce resource that I hardly find enough of it to rest, not to mention the luxury of taking a few hours strolling around with camera.
Someone told me when you have a will there is a way. I admit I don’t have enough passion for photography to sacrifice my other activities. However, there are specific times when we go for holidays. I would surely not miss the opportunity to experiment and try taking reasonable shots. If you are like me, hard to find time in your normal busy schedule to play with your camera set, don’t have enough passion to sacrifice others for this hobby – don’t loose heart, just learn the skills naturally when you are away from your normal routines – holidays and traveling. I am yet to form the habit to bring my camera along in my normal days.
I find the blog post below good for inspiration and motivation that we should not give up the hobby. You can find the original post here: http://digital-photography-school.com/3-tips-on-how-to-approach-photography-as-a-hobby/
One day we will be surprised that we can actually take good pictures that even amaze us.
Happy photographing! Continue reading

Facing a Barracuda through a Giant Aquarium
Enchanted River is found in Philippines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers, have tried reaching for the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals share that NOBODY has been successful in catching the fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

Poland has a forest full of bent pine trees (Crooked Forest)
Christ the Redeemer Statue overlooking the whole of Rio was pretty special. You could see it from everywhere you went. I also have to say that the majority of the people who lived there, including the ‘natives’ (especially in the favelas) knew exactly who it was and respected it and what it stands for.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia’s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.
