Why I love Delhi Metro

Despite my previous post My Problems with Delhi Metro, I enjoyed the ride. There are two sides to every story right? #1 – Tight Security Every passenger has to pass through a metal detector and belongings have to pass through the X-ray baggage inspection system. I took pictures of the whole process, thinking of sharing it…

My Problems with Delhi Metro

Intimidated? Yes. Nervous? Yes. Truth be told, I was apprehensive about taking public transport in Delhi, not because of the catastrophic 2012 Delhi gang rape, but…the fear of the unknown. I have never seen how the metro looks like, nothing about them in the Bollywood films I’ve watched, did not Google or Youtube the metro, certainly…

Welcome to India!

One of my biggest fears of this trip is the point of arrival in India. Most flights arrive at night (10pm) and that intimidates me; I have a preconceived idea of the airport and roads, after having conversations with friends or colleagues who were born and bred in India or have been there.

Boys Flying Kite in Bintan

Inspiration for this post? You followers. I realised that you guys aren’t from the part of world that I am from – Southeast Asia. I was born and bred in Singapore. Heard of it? I always ask people if they know about my tiny island. So I am going to share pictures of my country,…

Boys of Bintan

Last year when I was here, three lovely kids made my day, and birthday! It was hard to say goodbye, luckily I took loads of pictures and a video of them. This time, four boys shared the beach with us. It was nice to watch them running around, fighting the waves, laughing to their hearts’ content,…

Shady Shack, Part 2

Made a return trip to Shady Shack. It was an impromptu decision to escape the hustle and bustle of Singapore’s hectic city life. I’ve written about Shady Shack last year, but these are more pictures of the place. Sick of resorts and hotels, I just want to go back in time, back to basic.

Shady Shack, Bintan

Who would have thought that the best birthday celebration would be in one of Indonesia’s islands, tucked away from civilisation? Well, there’s electricity (only at night) and water (brought in through a pipe, diameter no bigger than 3cm). When I came back from the trip, I posted My 23rd Birthday in a nutshell. I was so…

My 23rd Birthday

I have never seen so many diamonds in the sky, so many jewels in the sea….. I have never tasted salty chocolate cake fresh from the sea. I have never swam with butterflies. I have never held clownfishes in my bare hands. I have never read my birthday letters to anyone. Until 23rd May 2010.…
