Thereโ€™s no perfect national icon that illustrates the hawker scene in Singapore than a glass of Teh Tarik. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Concocted in post-World War II by Indian-Muslim immigrants, it fascinates me since young, how the art of pulling, or tarik to give a smoother, creamier texture and a lovely frothy top sparks so much joy that it is the go-to drink on any occasion, conversation-accompaniment across different races and age group, at any time of the day. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธโ˜•๏ธ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿฝโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ฌ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Singapore | โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € #whatmakessg #ourhawkerculture @natgeoasia

"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 €

We've immune ourselves to worry more about having less likes/drop in followers than quality of work, and compete in an artificial race to collect as much passport stamps rather than living that moment exploring the beauty of what the Earth's most remote places have to offer. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐Ÿ•ด๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ฉ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Labengki Island, Indonesia | โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €

We had to ride through the notoriously bumpy Sumatra roads, passed through an active volcano that erupted devastatingly few weeks ago, then trekked 3hrs in a thick, creepy rainforest which some locals who adheres to native animism warned us the "jungle spirit" will "kidnap" us and never return back. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € For all the hurdles to find this hidden gem that is closed to public access, being surrounded by waterfalls all to ourselves have been my most unforgettable North Sumatra adventure so far. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € ๐Ÿ“ธ๐ŸŒณ๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒŠ โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € | Two Colours Waterfall, North Sumatra, Indonesia |

There are days when you go out all day shooting but don't return back with anything.
