Just 30 mins from Taishan town city, one will arrive here at one of the filming sets for the movie "Let the bullets fly" (#่ฎ“ๅญๅฝˆ้ฃ›) featuring Chow Yun-Fat. The architecturally western-influenced buildings may seem abandoned but apparently 20% of them are still occupied. Here in this once busy township, you can see the sense of community with the town-houses built together surrounding the plaza. One can also closely observe the unique architectures and designs of each buildings. As mentioned previously, many of the houses in their Taishan were built by overseas Chinese returning home and they applied western-influenced design to the exterior especially. However, for many of these buildings, they were constructed using traditional Chinese tiles in combination of Western architectural implementation. There was a rather symbolic reason behind it as I was told (rumours?). These overseas Chinese while working overseas, many experienced hardships in foreign land, occasional suppression from respective employers or social segregation. It was the early 1900s as a reminder. Therefore, upon returning, they put the "Chinese tiles" on the TOP over the Western architectural designs as a way to express their ... unpleasant experiences? Very symbolic indeed but the truth to that is yet to be determined. Taken in #2011 #throwback .

[London, UK] Yes it is the famous Borough Market in London but the photo was taken back in 2010 when it was less crowded relatively speaking and one does not have to fight for food and can leisure walk about tasting some of food as well. The market has become a must stop for many visitors to London and continues to draw attention of many food lovers like myself to plan my itinerary around it. And of course a must visit afterwards is the Monmouth Coffee around the corner! [28mm f/2 1/250s ISO320] .

[Singapore] The Sultan Mosque or Masjid Sultan is one of the many iconic structures in Singapore. Designated as a National Historical Landmarks / National monument of Singapore in 1975, the existing building was completed in 1928 replacing an existing mosque in the same location. The Kampong Glam area where the mosque is located is a popular tourists destination and being a tourist to Singapore back in 2011. (apparently a lot happened in 2011 and I took tons of photographs around Asia!) What amazes me is that not much has changed when I visited a few months ago, the only major change I suppose is how I am now carrying my iPhone for photos instead of a camera. [28mm f/8 1/800s ISO320].

[Causeway Bay, Hong Kong] For those who live in Hong Kong, the Causeway Bay / Sogo crossing should be a familiar scene. I am quite fond of this photograph because I believe this crossing is one of the very few in Hong Kong where Jaywalking is relatively rare (a huge relative of course). It is rare not because pedestrians follow the rules but it is quite difficult to do so with the constant traffic from the buses / cars / trams. I wonder if having a police or traffic officers stationed at jaywalking hotspot would have any positive impact? If I recalled correctly when I passed by the ladies in the background were actually jaywalking (green man flashing or just turned red) hence encouraged me to snap the picture with such composition to illustrate irony and how many pedestrians simply ignore the rules even with police nearby! Photo taken back in 2011. [50mm f/3.2 1/200 ISO100] .

[Taishan, China] I couldn't find much information on this church (I wonder why) but as far as my research shows, it was built in 1926, funded by overseas Chinese at the time. In Taishan, one will find many well-preserved buildings from that era, each with its unique western influenced architectural buildings because most if not all were funded by overseas Chinese who went overseas to make a living and return home to build house(s) for their families and it was a trend to apply Sino-Western architectural styles to illustrate wealth as well as social status. Many of those buildings are now protected and categorised as historical structures for continuous preservation. Taken in 2011 as well and definitely an interesting shot which I recalled quite vividly because while taking the photo I tried to snap as quickly as possible to retain the composition wanted but the two lovely old ladies were not moving or more exactly standing relatively still in the same position / spot pondering about their next destination for almost a minute or two! [50mm f/5.0 1/200s ISO250].

[Taishan, China] Taken back in 2011, exploring the city of Taishan, China. While doing snapshots I came across this lovely old lady waving at me from inside her dimly lit home. I said hi in my broken Mandarin and waved back. I pointed at my camera and then pointed in her direction with a big smile on my face, she gave me a nod. Oddly when I snapped the photo she didn't smile but showed her serious face. Perhaps that was her camera face? As soon as I finished taking the photo she smiled and waved at me again. Thank you old lady for your serious camera face! :) [50mm f/5.0 1/200s ISO320] .

[Shanghai, China] Found this in my photo repository, apparently it was taken 8 years ago! I can't recall if it was 8 years ago I stored it or taken older than that. I believe it was 2010 Shanghai Expo as I was there that period. I recall a time when I would wait for multiple traffic signals in order to capture the moment using a camera, not an iPhone, and then edit it using Lightroom. How time has changed! [28mm f/4.5 1/50s ISO200] .

[Wan Chai, Hong Kong] Francis - a great little joint in the Star Street District offering Middle Eastern specialties. I came here around 5:30pm to avoid the nightly queue since this is a no reservation first-come-first-served system. I particularly enjoyed the smoked carrots and stuffed mussels. I do regret not ordering the grilled halloumi with pomegranate but there is always next time! If you can't come for early bird dinner then do expect a little wait for your table but it's worth the wait. @francishongkong
