What A Beautiful Day!

What a beautiful day!

Spring here looks very promising, I'm feeling the warm sun mostly everyday.
Didn't care if I'm getting hay fever at this time of the year, I don't really care.

Hillwalking - My Newfound Hobby

Sally Gap County Wicklow Sally Gap County Wicklow Sally Gap County Wicklow Sally Gap County Wicklow

I've long to go hillwalking again, Ireland can be truly one of the most photogenic countries when the sun peeps, though hardly, you have to be quick to decide to go outside, enjoy the warm weather and shoot away. 

I was never a morning person but as I get older (and wiser?), I began waking up early, I began to appreciate early quiet mornings and eager to accomplish several tasks (aka house chores) even before 8 am. With my new weekend routine, I confidently arranged an early meet up with myself, H and friends in Dundrum Road near m50, from there we all headed up to Wicklow by car.

The roads are narrow and stiff, you have to be extra careful and give ample distance from cyclists (they're competitive on the road I tell ya!). Sceneries are therapeutic in the eyes but I noticed that grasses on the hills are burned, perhaps to prevent it from totally covering the hills, it seemed like dessert. However the view while driving is still magnificent, it's like a different place altogether.

We decided to parked somewhere near the trail (foot of Sally Gap Hill), armed with few snacks and water we excitedly climbed it. Nothing beats a good companion, I'm happy to have invited newfound friends (a couple and their son) to join me and H exploring the Sally Gap Hill. We sometimes rest, take pictures and talk. Weather was totally cooperating - bright and warm, and by the time we reach the top, we could only gazed and wowed ourselves by what we see around. It's truly magical... Ireland is magical...

I would love to do this again, definitely come summer, I'll be making hillwalking itineraries.

Monogram and Damier Covalt

Louis Vuitton

No matter how other people think that Louis Vuitton (famous canvas) is redundant in the fashion world, I don't really care. I'm obsessed with its original prints and I carry each bag with pride. The craftsmanship is perfect and the quality is great! My Speedy Bandouliere is definitely my most favourite, it’d experience harsh wind and rain here but I prefer it being battered looking than shiny. I’ll be travelling quite often this year and it gave me the opportunity to look for a spacious wallet where I could stuff my passport, credit cards and iPhone. LV’s Damier Covalt canvas caught my attention and fell in love with it straight away.

Here it is handsome and fancy :)

Fisheye lens is not for everybody as it can make your eyes pop like a fish, but I do like it and been wanting for one ever since. Few weeks ago, I finally bought a Samyang 8mm fisheye lens for my Fuji XT1 camera. I've few ideas where to go and try this lens, I'm quite obsessed about it trying different things and it's funny when I try taking picture of people, really, I feel like a fish looking at them lol!
