This weekend (26 Mar 2017) marks the end of the 2017 edition of the i Light Marina Bay festival. I made a few more visits to the festival after the media preview so that I can see and photograph the installations which were either not ready then, or we didn’t have time to cover.

On 9 March 2016, a large part of the Pacific, including South East Asia and Australia was treated to a rare celestial event, a solar eclipse. Unfortunately, Singaporeans are only able to see a partial eclipse, with the 87% of the sun being covered by the moon. It’s still a rare event nonetheless, with the last […]
After a week of travelling around Iceland, encountering three nights of the breathtaking Aurora Borealis, spectacular waterfalls and beautiful icebergs, we are back at Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland.
