Montréal Revisited

Montréal wasn't part of my original plan. The day before we went to this city, my good mate Jase surprised me and told me we were going on a road trip. I didn't expect that we would travel for more than 8 hours just to visit the largest city of Québec Province, the French part of Canada. I love this city! The charm is different compared to Toronto, a highly urbanized city filled with modern skyscrapers in downtown and midtown areas. Montréal kept its charm by preserving old buildings in the old downtown. While it's notoriously colder here than in Toronto, it didn't stop us to explore this quaint city of Canada.

Months ago, I downloaded a bunch of LR presets, and I tried some of them. While browsing my Montréal album on my hard drive, I still have tons of unedited and unprocessed photos. Since I have all the time today, these are some of my favorite photos of Montréal.

Eighteen Hours on the Road

Sunrise at Angkor Wat Temple

The longest flight that I took so far was almost sixteen hours. It was last year when I flew nonstop from Manila to Toronto, and it was a dreadful experience. Don't get me wrong, the inflight services were top-notched, and the inflight entertainment system was up-to-date, but sitting for sixteen straight hours can be tough. I have exhausted all the possible things inside the cabin to keep me preoccupied–slept for six hours, watched The Greatest Showman and Crazy Rich Asians twice, and had a skincare routine while everyone's asleep. In a nutshell, I survived, and I think I won't be doing it again for a while. However, I just realized that this experience was nothing compared to what I've gone through when I rode a bus from Saigon to Siem Reap for eighteen hours!

PHOTO DIARY: Vivid Sydney 2019

Yesterday was supposed to be the first day of Vivid Sydney. Vivid Sydney is a festival of light, music, and ideas. It unites not just artists and music makers, but also tourists around the world. From 6pm each night mesmerizing art installations and 3D projections transform Sydney’s architecture and open spaces along the harbor foreshore including The Rocks, Circular Quay, Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, Darling Harbour, Luna Park, and Chatswood.

Unfortunately, this year's Vivid Sydney is canceled due to the ongoing global pandemic. Here are some of the photos that I took when I went here last year. It was a visual feast and a spectacular experience. Defo one of the highlights of my 2019!

Staying safe on the road – your guide to driving during the coronavirus pandemic

We're all familiar with the devastating impact of Covid-19 as it's spread across the world. Now, even the simplest of tasks such as shopping and driving from A to B seems much more complicated and worrying than before.

Now that some restrictions are becoming a little relaxed, more of us will be getting into our cars this weekend for a much-needed drive and a change of scenery. And if you’re someone who drives for a living, you may be eager to hit the road once again and enjoy a sense of normality – if you’re injured at work, including whilst driving for your employer, contact a workers compensation lawyer in Georgia. 

However, despite our eagerness to enjoy the simpler things in life, such as driving and travel, we still need to exercise caution and common sense. Here I’ve compiled some simple ways you can stay safe on the road during the coronavirus pandemic.

Now that the news about the death of Kim Jong-Un's has been circulating online for days, North Korea's future hangs by a thread. Some say that his younger sister, Kim Yo-jong, could take over. But, in a patriarchal and reclusive nation, that's a very tough sell. Is this the perfect time for the two Koreas to reunite again?
