Tokyo After Dark

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbUjBhHKovA Kabukicho is an interesting part of town in Tokyo. The large neon signs announce the myriad of pachinko parlours, izakayas, bars and entertainment establishments that are an antithesis to the otherwise reserved image of...

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...

SingPost POP Stations

SingPost POP Stations

I recently discovered POPStations here in Singapore while doing a bit of online shopping. A few days ago, the mailman stopped by while I was at work and attempted to deliver an item to me. When he found out that I was not at home, he left me a note with...

Koni Dom (Traditional Assamese Egg Curry)

Koni Dom (Traditional Assamese Egg Curry)

https://youtu.be/FyYQwpIVV9k This is poor man’s fare in India, but is comfort food. It is one of the easiest things to put together,  and while it does take a little time to cook, is well worth the wait. Egg Curry (or “Koni Dom” as it is known in Assam) is best served...

Chocolate Rum Raisin and Cherry Cake

Chocolate Rum Raisin and Cherry Cake

https://youtu.be/D974zuwuGY8 This is a very simple recipe for an all time favourite. When choosing fruit, I recommend going with glacé cherries which provide a perfect complement to the dark chocolate chips. This is best served warm with some fresh cold cream,...

Visiting Japan Part 1: What you need to know

This was shot earlier today using my DJI Mavic Pro. This is the tennis court at the Holiday Inn Resort in Batam. I haven't flown the drone since November 2017 as a result of either not finding enough time, or not finding a location in Singapore where I...
