Inle Lake (Nga Phe Kyaung OR Jumping cat Monastery) #11


This is our last destination of the tour. We arrived there about 4pm. It is an old monastery where you can a lot of antique Buddha statues and of course cats.  As you might heard of this monastery where cats are trained to jump through the hoop. According to Tripadvisor' reveiw,  there is no cat show anymore because the head monk passed away. 

When we arrived, most of the cats were sleeping. It was very dark inside and hard to take photography with available light. Some tourists are waiting for the show but there was no show until I spoke to the monk and donated cash for cat food. I think they should have schedule the show times so that tourists who come here from very far won't miss the show. 


There are about 15 cats laying around the monastery. Only 2 cats can jump professionally. I hope that they are fed well even there is no show.

Singapore Christmas & New Year Decoration 2013 #2


If u like to shoot beautiful bokeh, it is a very good opportunity to shoot at Orchard road. You can shoot Portrait Bokeh or Still-life with Bokeh. Since, I didn't have a beautiful model, I borrowed Dambo and Japanese Sister toy from my friend for these photos. It was a bit wired to shoot toys on the busy Orchard street but who care? :P

 This was my first time to shoot this kind of photo and I am really happy with the result. How do you think?

Singapore Christmas & New Year Decoration 2013 #1











As usual, Singapore's Orchard Road have been decorated with beautiful Christmas lights. The lighting this year is pretty simple. It uses sparkle of  silver and blue only. This year, I don't feel like shooting the street light decoration. I am more keen to shoot beautiful Bokeh and cute Christmas toys.

In this post, I have selected the best photos from my 3 visits to Orchard road. Please enjoy the photos and leave comment below.

Inle Lake (Inn Dein Village) #10



This river is located in front of Inn Den pagoda's entrance. It looks very beautiful and peaceful.  On our way to pier, we met these young monks. While I tried to talk to them, they said there is a cave or pagoda near this area and they could guide us. They couldn't speak Burmese very well so I couldn't ask what is the place looks like and how long will it take.

Inle Lake (Inn Dein) #9




At the end of the path, you can see these shiny golden stupas. I am not sure whether it is a good idea to build new stupas around the old one.  For me, I would to see all new one or all old one separately.
