photography, travel

how you record what you see during travelling?

i bet most of you would take your mobile or digital camera when you are having fun abroad, and yes! i am one of these people (coz i like photographing!). yet i read a news today that fujifilm is going to end one of its film products as you know, the demand for film is highly dropping after digital camera is being advanced, it’s too bad but somehow i couldn’t do much thing to help: i brought my old film camera every time i went travelling but i turned out didn’t take much picture (or even none…) coz my digital camera is always on my hand and my instant camera would be on another hand… so those unopened films are still unopened.

bangkok, thailand (2011)


seoul, south korea (2012)


last year i bought a instant camera which i had longing for ages as the film price is really expensive… but i like reading an actual picture rather than a pile of pixel on the screen, which is fast to scroll up and down, this action somehow implies those pictures are not that meaningful.

melbourne, australia (2015)


my sister is coming back to home this mid aug for few weeks and we will go to seoul for 5 days, i have already prepared some instant films for ourselves. of course, after i wrote the above paragraphs, i have to unpack those unused films (actually only 2 rolls left, one is black-and-white, another is e-to-c), to give them back the value, to make their existence make sense. thing is not born to be a rubbish, and people as well, nobody would like to be rubbish, right?


and i had tried to write my travelling diary before i graduated, but probably i’m too old to write the details and best to rest in the hotel to recover my energy after all over the walk (ok! these are just my excuse…)

best to write something other than normal travelling diary/schedule/review but my true feeling in my life here, my life doesn’t need to be dramatic, but not boring and routine at least. hell yeah let’s play hard on our life! turn us on!

what’s your feeling to say goodbye?


i don’t know if i’m too moisture, my tear always comes out to say hello to me when i need to leave a place or someone. i went to south korea for nearly 3 weeks with 2 of my friends, of course we argued at the middle of the journey and then i was super upset when we were in the airport waiting to go back to hong kong.

and last year i went to melbourne visiting my sister, tear was unconsciously coming out again when we were in the airport shuttle bus terminal.

and then a month ago i went to perth visiting my sister again, i know my emotion so so well, i drank beer in the living room alone while she was sleeping. oh gosh i cried in front of her housemate (as previsouly mentioned), lucky that not in front of her.

i don’t know if i experience more goodbye-scene and then i could get used to it, but… if everybody has own life to live and everything is a kind of lesson to grow, if i’m open to any challenges, that’s ok… positive vibe haha. when alone doesn’t mean lonely, why i have to feel sad to say goodbye?

have you met any gentle housemates?

i lived in my sister’s house in balcatta, perth. it is a suburb area which takes around 25mins to the city centre by bus. of course she is renting the house and living with a 50-something years old man who is a police (but somehow he doesn’t need to work everyday and i saw him keep watching the tv or sleeping during the period i visited haha). we didn’t have much interaction until the last night i was drinking beer alone in the living room and then he came back from the pub. “oh you are drinking again! you’re just back from pub!” i started the rare conversation, and then we have talked for an hour. during the period, he made me cry when we were talking about my sister (she wants to study in perth which would make me feel a bit sad as she has already left home for 2 years). probably due to the chemical reaction of the beer, i became emotional and he is so kind to give me a tight hug for comforting me and suddenly, he walked back to his room and took a cap to me as a souvenir! that! is! so! amazing! and! touching! i have never met a person who could be so nice to me although we had just met for 6 days (yes less than a week!).

i met 2 men during this trip, one is the man whom i mentioned in the previous post, sat next to me on the plane from singapore to perth; and the other man is this housemate. both of them could make me burst into tears easily. isn’t it bad if devote too much on developing relationship with people? and isn’t it bad to develop relationship with foreigners as i would be too sad if i can’t keep contact with them. hell yeah the housemate is not using facebook or other social media…

have you ever have any special experience on the plane?

perth, a so-called the most lonely city among the world, is my 1st place i travelled in 2016, to visit my sister.

i was taking singapore airline in hk and then transferred in singapore to reach perth. the flight from singapore to perth is my highlight of the whole trip as i met a man who sat next to me and then we talked, leant on his shoulder to sleep for half hour until the plane was landed (it sounds crazy right? but somehow he made me feel comfortable to do that) and then he became my boyfriend for less than a week and he disappeared like a fart for no reasons. yuck, like what taylor swift had said, a relationship which is uncertain and fragile doesn’t mean that it isn’t special and memorable. a kind of lesson though. at this moment i still wanna be a normal friend if he come finding me. anyway he upseted me for 4 days but this special memory would last forever in my brain (although i probably would forget how he look after years).
