Breaking and Entering

Haven't done this since Secondary School - jumped over a gate and into an abandoned building with this amazing interior. Notice building does not contain a roof.


Sleep More Lose More

I have been informed and pinched by a good friend having not seen each other for sometime that I have gained significant weight. Funny, as I thought I was losing more - not that it really matters much. I haven't had a good nights sleep for sometime due to my irregular bio-clock that is reacting and acting erratic.

According to, sleeping more may/can actually cause you to lose more weight.
"One of the more interesting ideas that has been smoldering and is now gaining momentum is the appreciation of the fact that sleep and sleep disruption do remarkable things to the body -- including possibly influencing our weight," says David Rapoport, MD, associate professor and director of the Sleep Medicine Program at the New York University School of Medicine in New York City.

Thousand Words

The pictures here were taken on my latest recce around Singapore. I don't really take pictures to begin with; often doing so for work or work related record purposes. Had the chance to work with some of the best photographers around ever since, but I was never quite pushed to make some of my own. Honestly, photography has not connected as much as how film does. Maybe because I am too lazy and would rather be an almost passive viewer and not 'immerse myself' with a single frame, although I know I can if I make a choice or choose to... then again, why should I?

We asked this question to our participants: Does a picture need to tell a story for you? Answers all mixed. Some really want their pictures to say something, some doesn't really care and just want the eye candy. Actually, the question is flawed and unfair, we were not asking the participant about how they feel - in actuality. The picture doesn't really care if it is going to tell a story for you. In itself and why it ever existed, telling a tale is it's sole purpose. Bad pictures tells stories, badder pictures tells stories too, 'long arm' shots of yourself meant for Facebook tells a story.

So why were these shots taken? I just wanted my laptop desktop to have wallpapers that I made myself. Do they tell stories? Ask them yourself.
