Stories on Film: Roll 1 (400 ISO) I’ve been feeling quite jaded about life lately, so I decided to take up a new hobby—film photography with lomography as my entry point! I finally got myself a Lomo LC-A+ 35mm a few months ago, and it’s been wonderfully refreshing. Most of my day-to-day work is focused [...]
Hello on a Lazy Sunday!
Alone Time Sometimes, I write like this. About my day. Like Waking up to an empty apartment. Making a cup of coffee. And then Deciding I want hot chocolate instead. I love the apartment. The whiteness of the walls, the creaminess of the couch. The location. The cozy. It is home. But not so much [...]

A Little Hope Goes A Long Way
We’ve heard the songs. We’ve read the poems. We’ve seen the posters. But when we say that we believe the children are the future, what exactly are we doing about it? What steps are we taking to make this belief an actual reality? Needless to say, the role of education is very important in shaping [...]

Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, 'cause "the West is the best." And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to [...]
The Year That Was 2011
I remember ending 2010 with mediocre hopes and a “whatever happens, happens” mindset. Not to say that 2010 was trivial; it was a fun balance between being a student for the last time, and entering the workforce. 2010 was a half-baked year, bidding farewell to the sheltered environments we grew comfortable with, and jumped head-on [...]
