Hi Folks, how have you all been? Keeping well?
We have taken delivery of our new family member last Monday! She is a Volkswagen Passat Variant (Wagon) 206TSI R-Line. We have been tossing around the idea of getting a bigger car since Princess O was born, and finally settled on this big girl. With the upsized family, little black (aka – the Tiguan) was getting a bit cramped with minimal boot space once we have put Ollie’s pram inside.
So here we are! We have landed on the up sized Passat B8 Variant, 2litre EA888 engine at 206kw with 350nm torque, ample leg room front and rear, and most importantly, a huge boot boosting 650lit of space and a shopping trolley list of safety feature.
I will (yes… will) do a detail report on the car as part of a media commitment next month, and for now, let’s look at this beautiful baby!!!!

Okie dokie … Let’s roll! INFINITICIOUS photos time!
I have promised another update right? Here you go, second blog post of the night! INFINITICIOUS style! (Oh well … the real cause is I couldn’t sleep… GO AWAY INSOMNIA!) … anyhow, let’s get started!
Jervis Bay – an oceanic bay in the South coast of New South Wales. Roughly 2.5 to 3 hours drive from Sydney CBD. It is famous for its beautiful white sand beaches. (apparently the whitest in the world!?) Regardless, it is absolutely beautiful! It is surrounded by coastal, marine and hinterland National Parks offer fantastic bushwalking, cycling tracks, Indigenous culture, camping spots, cliff-top lookouts and maritime heritage. More details: Please Click Here!
I have took a few days off in Feb and we have decided to head down to this beautiful place for a staycation with another lovely couple. As you will know by now, I love road trips! Especially a road trip with all the pretty sceneries! We take the scenic route from Royal National Park (aka good old Natio!), drove past the sea cliff bridge and went straight down to Jervis Bay through Wollongong. We have hired a cottage by the lake at Ewrol Bay, the view over there is just breath taking! Such a relaxing place and I will highly recommend you to experience it first hand!
Alrighty … let’s see some photos of this picture perfect place!
INFINITICIOUS Photos Time! Ciao for now and please like and share this place!

How are you all? Hope you are all keeping well and surviving the heat in Sydney.
I am currently travelling in Hong Kong, visiting this place that I have once called home.
Hong Kong – once a British Colony for 99 years and handed back to China (PRC) back in 1997. I have spent the first 16 years of my life here before I have moved to Australia, she is one of the most busy, vibrant city in the world. Very rich in her own culture, blended with the Western and Eastern tastes. She is a city full of stories… the good, the bad and the teary ones. Let’s look at this city from my lens and tell me what you feel?
Enjoy the photos below … please share the loves with your friends on social media and like this page! Your likes and comments are my motivation!
Hi Folks! I have received a few messages from you guys asking some very similar questions, so I have decided to answer them in two different blog post. The first question is what camera gear did I brought with me for the Melbourne trip and how I have found this in comparison to my Nikon gears before. The second question is what camera pre-sets I have used for the photos. Let me start with the gear questions first! Here we come the good old “What is in my camera bag?” post!
As you can see from the photo above, here are my travel gears. All can pack into the little Continue reading
Hi Folks … another late night blogging … I have just returned home from lovely Melbourne. I have processed the photos on the plane, just in time to post for this post!
I wasn’t feeling too well this morning and hence delayed all the activities… (not that I have much planned..) The flight was at 8.30pm, we went to the famous Chapel Street for some lunch. It is like the Paddington of Sydney, but with a Melbourne taste. Girls would love it here, and you will lost them here as well!! Anyhow …
Later on in the day, I have decided to wander around St Kilda and Brighton Beach area. This is my first time to Brighton beach, this become a famous tourist attraction with those colorful bath boxes on the beach, especially among Asian tourist (!).
Alright … I am getting a bit sleepy… Let’s show you some photos from today!

Yumm… Wagyu Burger!
Meh… I am different! But I stand out from the crowd!
Hi Folks … here is my daily updates of the Melbourne trip.
Due to the excessive driving and late night updating photos (…excuses), I have snoozed in until midday today … Melbourne STYLE!
Wandering around town and dropped by this awesome cafe tucked inside a South Melbourne laneway – Chez Dre. It is a French inspired cafe, food is top notch and the atmosphere is even better! Would definitely recommend!
Not too many photos today, but I have visited a very unique spot for some sunset photos. Continue reading
Evening folks… it’s 1.44am now and I have just came back to the hotel not long ago… (well … not really… I have finished all the editing already… just for all of you!)
I haven’t been to the Great Ocean Road for nearly 9 years now … it is still the same! Still so breath taking!!! I have always loved this coastal drive and couldn’t find anything like this to match in Sydney today.
Just like yesterday… the travel blog bit will come later, but promised you that I will bring you all photos first! Continue reading
Spring is coming … with some beautiful Cherry Blossom.
This is probably the first time that I took Miss X-T1 out for a day shoot, I must say, I am in love with her more and more after today. We went to the Cherry Blossom Festival in Auburn Botanic Gardens at Sydney’s inner west. Weather was a bit overcast and cloudy, but that still attracts thousands of people to go.
Auburn Botanic Gardens have this specific Japanese Gardens with traditional Japanese set out and planted heaps of Cherry Blossom trees. The event itself runs for 2 weekends and today is the last day. These 2 weekends are filled with fun and activities for those that visit the gardens, from martial arts demonstration to Continue reading
A random Friday night stroll at the Chinatown night market after work while waiting for dinner. This is my first time out with the XF35 F1.4, although I am quite impressed with it’s low light capability, but it tends to hunt a bit for focus and the “chatter” noise when it does metering annoys the hell out of me. (I was convinced to a point that I have problem with the lens!) But it is seems to be a common problem with these early X-Series lenses and the XF35 has never been updated since the X-Pro1 days. Anyhow… I am still in love!
Okay dokey … Infiniticous photos time!
