The Jewel at Changi

https://youtu.be/hsj3zbypjrs Singapore has the best airport, hands down. As if it weren't cool enough already, a few weeks ago, the Jewel opened. A brand new shopping centre parked right in the airport complex, open to locals and travellers alike. If you planned to...

Temples of Chiang Mai

https://youtu.be/QEumFEaZNnU In May 2018, I took a short break from Singapore to explore Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. I did a walking tour of the Old Town and then got a vehicle to take me around to the temples on the outskirts. There's something very peaceful...

Ko He

https://youtu.be/rR4Uc4cAU8w Earlier in May 2019, I took a short trip to Phuket. I had been working pretty hard and needed to recharge the batteries... and what better way to do that than flying a drone in a tropical part of the world. Ko He (otherwise known as Coral...

The Singapore Otters

This short film was shot entirely on an iPhone X when I happened to chance upon the Singapore Otters at Kallang Riverside Park in Singapore during an evening bike ride. This family of smooth coated otters was first spotted around 2014 in the Singapore Marina. They...

A Hong Kong Hyperlapse

This video has been shot entirely handheld using an Insta360 One. I recently got myself one of these nifty 360 cameras, and I have been absolutely blown away. The firmware on this camera makes it super easy to shoot super-stable footage without lugging...

Urad Dal Hummus

This is a two and a half minute guide to making Urad Dal Hummus. This is not hummus in the true sense, but a bit of creative liberty that I took with some Urad Dal (split with no skins), some garlic, olive oil, salt, cumin powder, black pepper and lemon juice. The...

The Dark Side Iced Coffee

The Dark Side Iced Coffee is just a regular glass of iced coffee made from full cream milk, and an iced-coffee cube moulded in the shape of Darth Vader's mask. This is just a fun thing to do, and is not really special in any way from a regular coffee... except for the...

Visiting Melbourne

This is perhaps the hardest travel guide for me to write… not because I don’t know the city well enough, but because I know it so well. At one time, Melbourne was a dream; then it became an aspiration which turned into a reality. Now, even though I don’t...

Visiting Japan Part 3: Kyoto

Kyoto embodies the picture perfect city. It is where one goes in Japan to experience true Japanese tradition. One can get lost in the many shrines that this city has, but they are only a small part of what there is on offer. This city is home to Gion, a district that...
