Double ang pao

* Picture copyright by FF, taken in China Town Singapore, January 2010

It would be nice if you're dating a Chinese right now. You would get a double ang pao. One for Chinese New Year (it's the year of the Tiger - my year, btw) and one for Valentine's day.

Ion Orchard

I think I saw this seed as an art piece in front of ION Orchard, Singapore. But I took this picture during my walk in Bogor Botanical Gardens, Indonesia. 

No, I have no idea what kind of seed this is or what kind of plant it will grow into. It just looks nice.

The barefoot philosophy

I love studying law, I do. Lawyers like to think that we're a far more superior human being who knows it all, but we Google too.

Practicing law in a country that I love so dear is heartbreaking, where the practice of corruption is deemed as business-as-usual (and can be counted as an actual element in a cost-benefit analysis), which makes trusting and being in the system is always keeping you on the verge of losing your humanity.

Elizabeth Gilbert once said that the appreciation of pleasure can be an anchor of one's humanity. It is your duty (and also your entitlement as a human being) to find something beautiful within life, no matter how slight.

Thus, I find my pleasure in taking long walks while I'm traveling, sightseeing, having conversations with people to listen to their life stories, and of course, stopping for a photograph or two. Walking barefoot, is a term that I like to use because it gives you that sense of natural harmony with the places you go to and it always reminds me to stay grounded, no matter how far your journey may take you.

How to pick-up guys with a DSLR

I've learned a few tricks to get acquainted with interesting men with a DSLR (which was borrowed, not owned).
Hey, I don't find anything interesting here, can I shoot you?
Or perhaps
You know, this picture would look nicer if there were you and me in it.
*moment of silence*

No. I never tried that in real life, but am thinking to do so in the near future.
