My Favourite night shots

I learned how to take photographs because I want to take photos of the people I know and make them look good like the ones in the magazines. Funny eh? I am just happy when I can look at their smiles seeing their own photos. Along the way, I learned

Weaving the memories

“To make one large piece like this can take up to two to three months, but that’s because we don’t always weave every day” The road to Nansean village was going up-hill. The small pick-up truck bounced every now and then trying to tame the gravel road that we took

Remembrance of the Past

Have you ever smelled a particular scent or tasted some specific flavour that immediately took you back to a place or experience in the past? I did all the time but only for some specific smell and taste. There is an actual scientific explanation to that, but I’ll get to

Reaching for Fulan Fehan

Kayla is approaching nine years old soon. I thought we could embark on another adventure together, the three of us. What would be the furthest travel that we could take from Kupang I wonder. Fulan Fehan! I have been reading and fascinated about this place for a while. Fulan Fehan

Snow Monkey Park in Nagano (Jigokudani)

Did we enjoy our time in Sapporo?

As we were cruising at 110km/hour on Super Hakuto heading for Hakodate from Sapporo, these questions came to my mind. “Do I like Sapporo? did we enjoy our time there?”     We came here because of the snow sculpture festival held each year at Odori park. Odori means broad

A Romantic Canal in Otaru

“Let’s not go to the Ski Resort? We can’t ski anyway, and there is already plenty of snow even everywhere here in Sapporo”.  I said to my wife, which she agreed happily. We both were still adjusting to the cold temperature here in Sapporo. We eventually decided to go to
