As I said in my previous post, I recently got robbed and had to buy some brand-new camera equipment. While I loved my big digital reflex camera and its lenses (which got stolen), I hated their weight and size – way too much stuff to carry for someone who’s constantly on the move like me. So when I hit the market again (this time with a rather limited budget) I decided to go for a mirrorless camera with interchangeable lenses. Backed up by some research and helped by some of my my friends’ opinions I ended up buying myself a Fujifilm X-E2. Read More
A long time passed since I made a post on the blog. Unfortunately these last couple of months have been a bit stressful with a number of unfortunate events occurring in sequence, including the theft of 90% of my camera equipment during our trip to Kuala Lumpur. Yes, I’ve been robbed again, but fortunately (so to say) this time I didn’t lose any of my pictures and I still have my laptop and my data is safe. Because I couldn’t afford to stay without a camera for a long time, I made a quick decision and taking advantage of an offer, I bought myself a Fujifilm XE-2, which proved a great purchase (but I’ll write more about it in the next posts) although I still miss my big Canon from time to time.
Anyway, the negative spell seems to be fading out (although, please send me your positive energy 🙂 ) and I’m so excited to announce that Kerala Tourism recently picked me along with other 24 travel bloggers, writers and photographers, to be part of Kerala Blog Express. Read More
Sylvie is a Muay Thai fighter from the US and she’s currently based in Chiang Mai. I came across her Muay Thai blog some time ago and started following her Facebook page too. She fought last Saturday at the Loi Kroh Boxing stadium, and I’m glad I was able to make it. I also got to quickly say hi before her fight. Read More
Last Saturday, on the 28th of December 2013, 10,000 monks gathered in Changklan road, not far from Chiang Mai’s walled town, in Northern Thailand, for a mass alms-giving ceremony. Alms-giving plays an important role in the Buddhist tradition of Thailand. By offering food to the monks, not only are Thai people supporting Buddhism, but – based on the Buddhist doctrine, they’re also making merits, whereas merits contribute to attract good luck and spiritual growth.
