Peaceful – Hoi An, Vietnam

29 Aug

During this voyage I realized that traveling alone is the biggest experiment I can conduct on myself. I say that because since I am the only person making decisions in new places, I can see the immediate results of my decisions and how exactly I react to new environments. I know I can see how decisions and environment affect me at home, but not quite as explicit as when I am this isolated and controlled subject. I can trace exactly how I met a person and what I did that lead to my circumstance right now.

When traveling alone, I’m an isolated variable and my new contexts are new experiments.

Hoi An is a beautiful port city with buildings painted with bright colors like yellow and turquoise, once colonized by the Chinese for its premium location in Southeast Asia. In Vietnamese, this dreamy city’s name means ‘peaceful gathering’ and when I was here, the open spaces and clear air refreshed my mind that I almost forgot about all the busy ruckus left behind in Hanoi.

Anywhere will do: A tanned and barefooted elderly labourer in Kluang, Malaysia grabs some shut-eye after lunch in the first comfortable spot he finds.

It’s sad, yet he seems right at home.

Cambridge River Festival – Cambridge, Massachusetts

31 Jul

My friend Anna and I moseyed on over to the Cambridge River Festival – which, due to construction, was held in Central Square and not actually on the river – today.  There were lots of artists and vendors, music, and performers.  It was great fun! I even bought a cute glass frog to add to my collection of crawly animal figurines.

Hawker – Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia

23 Jul

A hawker selling food on the backstreets. This is still a common sight in Penang. They are largely “extinct” in most other cities and urban towns in Malaysia where they operate in hawker centres and markets. Penang is considered a hawker food heaven among the Malaysian Chinese population and deservedly so.

Daily Life – Beijing, China

21 Jun

I like seeing people going about their daily lives. Scenes that some might walk by and not think anything about, I like to stop and capture. These big cities are filled with endless opportunities for capturing people just being people.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Authorities Turn Blind Eyes to Smugglers, but CANNOT Tolerate Elderly Make a Living

More incidents to indicate that the authorities turn blind eyes to smuggling activities but cannot tolerate / don’t care old Hong Kong making a living. This times, it is about the hawker control team under Food and Environmental Hygiene Department, HKSAR after the hawker night market incident.

It happened today, 2014/04/29. An old woman makes a living by selling miscellaneous items but was charged by the hawker control team.  One photo caption (by Yue Sze Kan @ Facebook) says:

There is a place so-called an international metropolis!
Urinating and defecating in public will be tolerated!
Illegal begging will be tolerated!
Smuggling will be tolerated!
But an elderly street hawker cannot be tolerated, and must be repelled immediately.
This place is called Hong Kong

Asheville, North Carolina

2 May

 

Asheville NC is a mini hipster mountain city within the state of North Carolina. Strolling downtown you are likely to see at least one person barefoot, one musician busker on every block, and one vegetarian restaurant. Asheville provides surreal mountain scenery surrounding the city, making it a prime location for outdoorsy types, hippies, health snobs, yogis, and hipsters. The town is quite quirky and filled with lots of character.

Going along with its hippy nature, it is also quite sustainable, providing many local businesses and local food.
