Three years ago, I was able to witness the HamaorisaiFestival. Back then, I promised to be a part of the event every year but that did not happen. This time though, I and my friends saw to it that we will be there as spectators or photographers, depending on our moods. Since a strong typhoon had just left Japan, we were expecting the weather to be good. We trooped to Chigasaki Station at 1 am, camped on the beach at 2 am and started taking photos of the event at 430 am. All the things we do in the name of photography. Craziness.

War is a sensitive topic to discuss. Lots have been said about the horrors of war especially during World War II (WWII). And every time WWII is raised, Hiroshima and Nagasaki are always the points of discussion.

I just returned from a business trip, my first in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I can also say this is my last travel for the first half of 2015. From January to June of this year, I traveled a total of 45,032 miles to four countries (South Korea, United Arab Emirates, Singapore and Kingdom of Saudi Arabia).

I got this book as a birthday gift from a friend who jokingly challenged me afterwards that I should make my own version after reading it.

The very first time I saw a postcard of Miyajima, I knew I had to be there. Instead of checking the internet for information, I asked my Japanese officemates about their first-hand experiences in the said island. That was in 2012. Fast-forward to 2015

When I was a kid, I always saw to it that the books I borrowed from our school library have illustrations. I found it easier to be a part of the story if the books have visuals. Of course, it changes as I grew older.
