Phuket

Been 5 years since I visited Phuket and it’s become a lot more touristy and commercialised since. Not a place I would return to if I had a choice. But nonetheless, travel never fails to widen up one’s perspectives and horizons.

(Pre) National Day Parade

So this year, i decided to join the crowd for a little (pre) National Day Parade atmosphere. In view that it’s the last rehersal for the NDP, the skies could have been more corporative, instead of being stark naked. It wasn’t even blue. It was just grey and sad. 😦

Oh wells, didn’t do much harm since we were there to take the fireworks anyways. But still, the skies could have done much better. (just sayin)

And today’s attempt at shooting fireworks against the Singapore skyline, is making me wonder if i need a wide-angle lens. =/
