Central Business District, Singapore

1° 17' 13.28" N, 103° 51' 16.88" E
When to the CBD area with 3 photography hobbyist friends, it was a clear and cloudless night due to the raining weather just 5 hours before we started our night shoot. This is also my first time trying out a Neutral Density filter (result on the last picture). Well, can say this time i was quite satisfied with the results as the pictures turn out to be very near to what i had in mind initially.

Sony Playstation 3 Wireless Controller

Finally, got myself a Sony PS3. Actually, it has been in my living room for about 3 weeks already. I have been obsessed about gaming on my PS3 these past few weeks until my wife starts to say that i've been poisoned by gaming. Ha, can't blame her as i've been telling her too much about the adventure i've had in the gaming world.

Taipei 101 Observatory View

25° 2' 1" N, 121° 33' 52" E
This is a view from the outdoor observatory at the 91st floor of Taipei 101. Could only get to view this direction because all other 3 directions are closed for entry due to strong wind but anyway it was a great experience standing 391.8 meters above ground and enjoying the wind pushing you around. Also, taking the passenger lift up was amazing, imagine 5th floor to 89 floor in 37 seconds only.

Dan Shui - Fisherman's Wharf

25° 10' 58.9" N, 121° 24' 38" E

Lover Bridge of Dan Shui got its name because it was commissioned on the 14th of February 2003 Valentine's Day. It is a 196 meters long cable-stayed bridge and to walk across only takes 3 minutes. Many have come to the Lover Bridge to enjoy the sunset view here. During my time there, the weather was not in favor due to Typhoon Lupit nearing the shores of Taiwan.

CKS Memorial Hall

25° 2' 4" N, 121° 31' 18" E
Took this photo on the 21st October 2009 during my honeymoon trip to Taipei, this is really an exciting trip as both me and my wife have never been to Taiwan. CKS Memorial Hall have a parade square so huge that just by standing in there will make you feel very tiny.
