Bits of 2013 + Free Photoshop Curve Giveaway!


2013 has truly been a year of significance. Flipping old albums had me realised that indeed I have grown, and photography had certainly witnessed it with me. Frankly these recent months due to heavy load of university work I find it really tough to strike a balance between my interest and school. But seeing I have come a long way, my passion will of course not be passed up. Also in this year the fact that you will get what you want if you work hard enough crystallised. I received offers, sponsors and so many opportunities and collaborations that I had never imagined myself doing. Furthermore there were also crazy loads of loves and encouragement from new people and existing followers that I can't thank enough. My travel logs have also become so thick I think I will conquer the whole of Europe very soon! Well I already have so many plans for 2014, can't wait to share really. Cheers to a wonderful year ahead! 

As a custom, here's a new year gift to wrap up 2013. Venetian is a curve with blue/greenish hues, and strong contrast for boosting and vivid presentation. If you're fond of a more dramatic effect, it will definitely serves as a great enhancement tool.

Italy . . . According to iPhone.


Ciao! Doing it the Italian way for certain... The festive season had me indulged in the Roman beauty. Magnificent is definitely an understatement, Italy's one hell of a tourist paradise. Strolling the streets had never been so exciting, and you would have your bucket list items crossed when presented with the world's top landmarks like the Colosseum and the Pisa Tower. Also I might have already hit my life quota for pasta and pizza... Full posts taken using my SLR soon! 

Route: Rome - Pisa - Florence - Venice - Berlin

Happy Christmas!


And it's that time of the year again! As I excitedly wrapped all the loves to be given out I couldn't help admiring these lovely gift papers I grabbed from Oliver Bonas. And of course a vintage-y touch is essential, so there went my favourite strings. We would say in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make... indeed! I'm madly in love with all the little gifts I received, after all you know it's the little thoughts that count. Also Stephanie sent me a pack of polaroids she lovingly customised, so beautiful I couldn't resist pinning!

I had been eyeing on Casetagram cases for the longest time, so when the team dropped me a mail I couldn't describe how thrilled I was! Customisation is the key and I can assure Casetagram is a brilliant platform to showcase creativity. Layouts, pictures, designs - 100% your control. This layout that I picked equals simplicity at its best I reckon. How can you not love transparent cases?! Also, I'm so in love with the matte finish and the lightness of it. Make yours today!

Analogue Journal: Bath.


We escaped to Bath last Saturday for its famous Christmas market. On the day itself 20k visitors turned up so you can imagine the crowd! I would say I still love Bristol's, oh the unadventurous spirit in me... Still it was great catching up with my bunch and another friend from Oxford and what more I could ask for when I was fed with Sally Lunn's bun topped with cinnamon butter? Have a great week folks!
