much love monday: tea, coffee and tv

Joining yet another weekly meme! All this weekly memes are so much fun. They give me a creative goal for the week and forces me to increase my observational skills as I go about my daily life. Ever since, I started playing with toy cameras, I have noticed myself becoming more observant to my surroundings and noticing little things that I would never have noticed before. Each day becomes more interesting because it is never quite the same despite the fact that my daily life is rather mundane.

Anywayyy, on Mondays, I am going to start participating in Anna's Much Love Monday. Her blog, Much Love is endlessly inspirational and she's a big fan of film as well. So without further ado, here is my first 

I created this heart from the dredges of my tea last Friday night. It took me quite a few attempts to shape the tea leaves and so focused was I that I completely zoned out of the conversation going on around me. LOL!

List of Loves

* Tea, of course!
* Coffee, too. Today, coffee is not an option but a necessity because I slept only three hours the night before working on a project.
* Sherlock (the BBC series). Seriously, the most amazing television I have ever watched. I have always loved the Sherlock Holmes books but this show just upped the ante for me.
* Doctor Who (Series 5). I recently discovered the sci-fi geek portion of my soul. It was dormant for 23 years but Doctor Who released it two weeks ago. Right now, I cannot wait for the Christmas Special to be broadcasted!

Have a Happy Monday, folks :)

Shadow Shot Sunday: Bubble Boy

I happened across Harriet's blog earlier this week and I found out about her weekly feature Shadow Shot Sunday.

I browsed through the previous galleries and I just fell in love with all the shadows that have been posted so far.

Hope you all like my first entry for Shadow Shot Sunday! :)

Holga 135BC 16: It's A Pool Party!

My little cousin had a birthday party and the whole family and her friends were there to celebrate her special day with her. 
All her friends are so cute and I had a wonderful time snapping them as they had fun in the pool. 
This was one of those magic rolls of film where practically every picture came out amazing.

Holga 135BC 15: A New Life

I shot my 15th roll in and around my first month of work. One week after touching down from Hong Kong, I went straight to work, straight into my new adult life. Thinking back, I think I was a little mad for jumping in so fast. I wish I had a little more time to enjoy the completion of my undergraduate study with my friends and not being holed up in my cubicle. Still I can't say I don't enjoy the challenges of my job :)

Film: Ferrania Solaris 400

I love this Solaris film. I am going to have to stockpile them soon.

Around the National University of Singapore.

On the way

The civic district before dinner.

Holga 135BC 14: Grad Trippin' in Hong Kong + Home

It's the last of the grad trip rolls! Mainly street scenes in Hong Kong as we were walking and shopping around throughout the whole weekend. My favourite purchase was at the camera shop where I bought at least a year's supply of film because they were crazy cheap! I think I spent at least a 100 bucks in that shop!


Back to Singapore...

Holga 135BC 13: Grad Trippin' in South Korea

Selamat Hari Raya to all my Muslim friends as they celebrate their sacred day!

Plans for Ikea was scrapped when my Dad had to use the car so now I am just bumming around on the internet, catching up on drama episodes and uploading my pictures. Seriously I will finish up my graduation trip pictures this weekend and start moving on to the rolls I have been accumulating since then!

Film: Konica Centuria Super 100

I got this Konica Cenutria film from that little shop in Busan. It's an expired film and it came back super grainy. I thought it was the perfect film to showcase the grittiness of Hong Kong. It was a seriously gloomy day when we arrived,, strong winds and forbidding grey clouds.

some sort of fortune teller in Insadong

And then we had to leave Seoul...for Hong Kong!
