That automatic all-defensive mode the moment he saw you lifting your arm for a quick camera shot, reminding you once again that the world's largest tree-climbing mammals are here to stay and protect their natural habitat. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Itโ€™s ironic to see orang utans, or also known as the โ€œperson of the forestโ€ in my language, critically endangered when they play a vital role in seed dispersal and maintaining the health of the ecosystem of one of the worldโ€™s largest rainforest. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ’๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Bukit Lawang, Indonesia | โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #OurCleanEarth #Ecosperity #NatGeoAsia @natgeoasia @temasekseen

Behind this picturesque landscape view of the worldโ€™s deepest and largest volcanic lake, is yet another uneventful outing for these local fishermen. Years of unregulated community fish farms, uncontrolled deforestation, industrial waste and sewage from houses and hotels nearby build up pollutants, causing a depletion of oxygen in the water leading to mass die-offs of fishes. As we reflect on an environmental problem, triggered by human greed and ignorance, let us remind one another of our responsibility to save and protect livelihood and ecosystem to ensure a sustainable civilisation for us and our children. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐ŸŽฃ๐Ÿ›ถ๐ŸŒŠ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Lake Toba, Indonesia | โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #OurCleanEarth #Ecosperity #NatGeoAsia @natgeoasia @temasekseen

How to crop out continuous stream of selfie-obsessed humans at Moshe Safdieโ€™s latest architectural masterpiece in the Worldโ€™s Best Airport?

"I lost myself trying to please anyone. Now I'm losing everyone, as I find myself." #WHPlight โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € I rarely meet people from Instagram (barely less than 10 after all these years on this platform), what's more the popular kids on the block. Rather, I surround myself with those that made my real life better than my social media life, not the other way round. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Each time I travel, I push my creative sphere to the next level by learning from those who dare to be different, rather than those who validate themselves by their social media statuses. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Meeting @yaujiahong , who helped me to snap this shot, was an eye-opener. For someone who's half my age (and I'm not even 30!) yet so talented and willing to learn makes me realise that, your level of belief in yourself will inevitably manifest itself in whatever you do. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ•Œ๐ŸŒ‡๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia | #agameoftones #artofvisuals #beautifuldestinations #bestvacations #CreateExplore #discoverer #earthfocus #earthofficial #earthpix #earth_shotz #eclectic_shotz #exploretocreate #global_hotshotz #gramslayers #IamATraveler #ig_color #igmasters #lensbible #passionpassport #shotzdelight #stayandwander #theIMAGED #moodygrams #travellingthroughtheworld #wonderful_places #viewbug #visualsofearth #vzcomood #500px

"Every step of my journey is about me discovering new strength in myself rather than the end to the finishing line." โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Took some time off social media to reflect on my past adventures while re-evaluating the positive impact that I've made to the community. A few months back, I daringly took a spontaneous flight to witness the erupting Mount Sinabung after news broke out to experience first hand towering plume of ash shot within close distance, at a critical point when the roads leading to it were closed and thousands of villagers were forced to evacuate, without telling any of my loved ones. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € While we constantly seek new thrilling adventures trying to compete with one another, often we neglect about the repercussions cause of our actions in the pursuit of finding that perfect shot for fame. We've seen increasing devastating news of deaths from those trying to capture daredevils acts for the gram, risking their lives to fulfil their narcissistic self-indulgence for social approval. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € As we take giant leaps in each of our own journeys, it's time for us to be responsible creators, to think about whether a photo is worth it to bring yourself into a dangerous situation, or to inspire the young ones to imitate it, or simply re-evaluate our respective notion of "live life to the fullest." Let's remind one another that there's more to life than the highly curated version of lives that we are presently presenting. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐ŸŒ‹๐ŸŒณ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Mount Sibayak, Indonesia | โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €
