My brother told us how it was mandatory to visit Dublin if we were ever around Ireland. So we packed our wallets and cameras, and hopped on the morning train to Dublin from Belfast city.
The very first thing I noticed about Dublin was the vast amount of crowds. The only place that wasn’t as crowded as much were the park where we fed the pigeons with Cheetos and cream crackers.
Pretty decent place to just walk around, and shopped a little. Though the sales were crazy, I only bought a pair of sneakers….and fruits. I love fruits.
I could’ve taken more pictures, but considering the limited time we had to stroll around, I was too caught up with spending quality time with my family.

I had a great view of the mountains from my room where I stayed in Belfast. At night, the houses that lit the mountains’ ground acted like stars, it was without a doubt, a worthwhile stay. Other than touring along the coasts of County Antrim and basking in the beauty of the mountainous and oceanic scenery that I swear were made for postcards, I toured around the city several times too. Belfast is truly a beautiful place. Considering that it’s not as fast-paced as the other cities I’ve been to, there was just a somewhat calming atmosphere Belfast managed fulfill that I ended up forgetting how hectic my days were.
The Titanic Belfast was an architectural art work overall. From the sharp and rugged surface that represented the roughness of ice to the open yard where the poles stood at the back of the building, it lived up to its reputation.
A+ for Belfast!!
Truly a blessing to get to travel to this place.
Hey guys! Here are some of the pictures I chose to edit and to post in this blog. These are the ones I took when I went to the Giant’s Causeway, which is outside of Belfast city and at the coast of Northern Ireland. The tour bus started off from the city and made its way through the most scenic/picturesque/Game of Thrones-esque surroundings I have ever laid eyes on. We made a few stops along the way, as the journey was about 4 hours. My favourite pit stop before the Giant’s Causeway was Carrick-a-Rede and Larrybane, where the ocean was as “blue as the overhanging heaven” (P.B Shelley). The Giant’s Causeway was as amazing too, of course – with its dark blue ocean and distinctive interlocking column of basalt rocks that make up the coast. The place acquired its name from the mythical story of the rivalry between Finn and Benandonner.

Anyway, all stories aside, enjoy the view 🙂
Even though the long flight to UK was never a favourite, the adventures me and my family had were worth while. We visited 5 cities for this trip, and every city gave me different opportunities of ways and angles of taking pictures. A lot of patience, awkward body poses and being constantly left behind were achieved in the process of taking the pictures I wanted to take. Not all of them came out as I wanted them to be and as far as pictures could show you; they do not justify on all the beauty I have witnessed. Although, some of the pictures I am happy with will be posted in this blog. In this post, the pictures are, somehwat a ‘sneak peek’ of what sort of things I will be posting in the near future. I hope you all know that I do not claim myself as a pro photographer and I do not own fancy smancy cameras (just yet), I mostly use my phone and digital camera. So these pictures you will see are just pictures I liked taking and editing. The apps I used are vsco, afterlight and aviary. I hope ya’ll will have a lovely day/night.
It’s a whole different world up there, in the clouds. Being amongst them have to be one of my favourite places to be. I believe I will never get tired of being so elevated up in the sky, it is truly part of the traveling experience everytime I hop on an airplane. These are a few pictures I took (amongst the many others) to appreciate the views from up above. Till next time.
Salut, net explorers!
These are some pictures I took in the newly opened Jerudong Park. Overall, the rides were fine, though I’m not sure a whole $15 were quite worth it as a lot of the rides were closed (Or maybe I’m just a little bit of a cheapskate). Oh well, important part was that I had fun and I have to thank a great company for that.
Olla dear internet surfers!
This is my first post for this new blog of which I am dedicating to post my pictures.
I was lucky enough to tour around Singapore with my family last December, so I got to see a lot of the creative architectural side of the country. Here are some of the buildings (and some other things) I have captured during my trip.
