Nathaniel K2 Graduation at BBTK 24 Oct 2015

In a blink, he has completed his pre-primary education at Bethesda Bedok-Tampines Church Kindergarten.

Nathaniel's first try of the graduation hat and gown.

Looking at these pics, I can see the uncanny resemblance and I feel like I am in a time tunnel, looking at myself as if I am my father from a couple of decades ago.

I am unable to explain the weird epiphany I had that day, but I guess when the older folks kept encouraging the married couples to have kids of their own, this kinda explains why.

I saw the better version of me and he has all the time in the world to make mistakes and change the world in ways I never did.

Macro shoot at Lower Peirce Trail 17 Nov 2015

Testing new simple lighting setup on the MT-24EX.

Alone at 12 midnight in the Lower Peirce Trail sure reminds me of the good ol' army days.

Somehow, there was no fear, despite all the weird noises the secondary jungle was making.

The only fear was of the weather.
Because rain will definitely put a stop to my late night outing with the critters.

Family outing to Ubin 5 Sept 2015

My children were born on an island.
But they have no idea what island living is all about.

So on this particular Saturday morning, I brought them to Pulau Ubin.

They had their share of sun, sand, sea, jungles, tracks, insects, crabs, mudskippers, mangroves,wild boars and did I mention sun?

And they said they didn't want to go back there ever again..

/me faints.

We were invited by the owners of Sarah's Pancakes for this special event as they were visited by the 501st Singapore Garrison.

As my kids and me are all Star Wars's fans, we couldn't resist the chance to meet them Storm Troopers.

After visiting Sarah's Pancakes for the first time, we became their fans too!

Padang Night Shoot with Alex 31 Jan 2015

It's been a while since Alex and me went for a shoot together.

Alex also helped me tested my Nissin flash against his Canon 580EX II flash.

It turned out that my Nissin DI866 MKII needed a flash power reduction on the Flash Compensation function on my Canon 6D body

Leicester House Party Feb 2000

In the year of 2000 at Leicester, a bunch of cool kids thought we were cool too and they invited us to their home for dinner and more coolness ensued.

Back to the day when we had more hair and less troubles..

Some of the pictures below were selfies even before selfie was popular.

Pics were taken with an old JVC DV digicam that ran old MiniDV tapes back then.
Doesn't even has a SD card slot.

TBT Circa March 2002

Well, you can't turn back the clock.
But when you need to reminisce, it will always be there frozen in time.

Pics were taken back then with an old unpopular JVC compact digital camera.
