Vintage Furniture – Seattle, Washington

28 Jul

I want to tell you a quick love story.

It all started while my man and I were wandering through a new-to-me Goodwill last weekend. I spotted the beautiful, golden mid-century desk from across the room. As I walked quickly towards it, I noticed its slender legs and wonderfully sized drawers.

The decision to purchase was only slightly difficult as I had had a long, moving-furniture kind of week. Thursday and Friday evening had been spent loading in my lovely, new white couch and loading out my huge, dark couch to its new home. I was a bit tired of loading furniture like I was in the process of moving. There was lots to consider. However, for over a year I have been using a pop up table as a desk and a mid-century desk would fit wonderfully in my 1962 apartment. The finish needed a bit of love, but when I saw the price of only $15, it didn’t take long for me to realize that it was meant to be. I took it home and loaded it immediately on to my porch in order to sand it down.

As I was unscrewing the handles from the face of the drawers, I noticed something I had not seen before. A key! A beautiful key with a heart-shaped center had been carefully hidden, screwed in on the back of a handle. Somebody had obviously cherished whatever the key belonged to enough to hide it so well.

Musical Pleasure – Helanada

25 Jul

Soul Food

Music can lift you up, bring you down or set you cruising.

Music has been with us since time immemorial, it can be used to promote rest and relaxation, motivate us to get up and dance or play. Good music also takes the drudgery out of work.

Abstract external stimuli, like music or art, can often trigger heightened pleasure responses in people, even though they can’t be thought of as vital for survival or the result of conditioned reinforcement. They are perceived as being rewarding rather than actually having a direct or chemical influence.

Music can give intense pleasure by delivering chemical rewards in the brain that are equal to the joy of good food or even sex, and now scientists think they may have identified the part of the brain where this pleasure starts. Brain scans have shown a direct relationship between activity in people’s nucleus accumbens and how much they were willing to pay for a song.

In light of Robert Sapolsky’s work, it may well be that music acts as a catalyst that allows dopamine to actually do it’s job as the pleasure in music is in the listening.

Warmth of the Locals – Siem Reap, Cambodia

24 Jul

Seeing the locals warmly smile to us, with the beautiful backdrop of the fields of rural Siem Reap, made the quad ride (and waking up early!) all worth it. :)

Young and Old – Philippines

24 Jul

I’m really drawn to people in the streets. I want to capture them in a way where one’s soul is preserved or rather his/her personality is preserved in the photo. That’s why I don’t try to talk to them before shooting to really see the individuality and the richness of their character. After I click the shutter, that’s when I’ll talk to them.

In this series we can see a lot of contrast, not just in the technicalities but also on what the photos show. I’ve observed that a lot of young adults here in the Philippines choose to go bum, not working their asses to work in order to feed their families. Then when they get old, they regret not doing what they can when they were still younger and stronger.

Warner Brothers Tour – Los Angeles, California

24 Jul

WiFi’s been hard to come by and I’ve been on the go pretty much none stop and getting to know my new trek mates so this post is a few days late. (sorry!) Whilst in LA I went on the VIP Warner Brothers tour. I was super excited about it as being a TV and film nerd it was really interesting for me to see how American studios are run. It was an amazing tour and Berlyn (our tour guide) was so informative and helped cater the tour to what shows we all liked. I would definitely recommend it and I’ll write a more in depth review when I get home.

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.
