Shirlene & Eugene | Icecream shop engagement shoot

Eugene and Shirlene are dedicated Ben & Jerry’s fans.  As I’m told, Eugene basically seduced Shirlene with copious amounts of ice cream – like, 10 pints at a time.  Naturally, they needed to do a pre-wedding shoot at Ben & Jerry’s.  The shop on Dempsey Hill was absolutely perfect.  Lovely heritage building and a VW van that matched their choice of ice cream.  If anyone from the shop asks, NO, we did not touch the van.  You can’t prove anything.

Roger Lim - Great job! You can cover my 21st birthday!

Carlina Teteris - What? I thought you were turning 6 this year?

Akila Saifi - Loved the pictures. Great job.

Magalie - Fun idea! (And great photos too)

Borobudur | Central Java

This was my second time at Borobudur and for the second time we were too cheap to pay the 35USD or whatever the price is for the actual sunrise entry.  I’m not going to say we didn’t make a dedicated effort to find someone to pay off to open the main entrance ahead of time to let us in to catch the sunrise.  As much as I hate admitting failure, I think the lack of actual sunrise shots may suggest the outcome of that effort :(

We still managed to make it in early enough to have the temple pretty much to ourselves so we didn’t have a million people in our photos.  Nice.

I’m off for some island time next week, but I’ll try to get another post up before I leave.

Romulo Rejon - Nice pictures! Let see how mine turned… ;)

Clubvivre @ Alice in Asylum

Last night Clubvivre joined forces with The Experience Architect, FLABSLAB and several other partners to throw an amazing party.  Clubvivre brought in one of their top chefs to provide dinner to start out the evening in a really cool shop house in Geylang full of art displays, weird and wonderful stations including gin and tonic cupcakes, super hipster moustache barbers, chicken that had been cooked in a bathtub for 6 hours, several drink stations that kept delicious Gin and Whisky cocktails flowing all night, and a mime, for good measure.

Today’s hangover was very generously sponsored by Hendrick’s Gin.

Ardian MonGstrous Wilasti - ; I’m on the first picture of the Hendrick’s Gin event! Lol!

Johan Shah - Muka lost~ :)

Javanese Road Trip | Surabaya – Jogja

The road trip started in Surabaya, then we went on to Bromo via Probolinggo, Batu, Solo and Finished in Jogja.  It was a much nicer way to see East Java than bus.  It was great to have the liberty to stop whenever we needed to buy avacados, durian, random satay (horse satay anyone?), play in rice paddies or to stock up on chocolate for our daily chocolate time, which we learned must take place about 1 hour after lunch – no earlier, no later.

I’m finally done processing all the Java photos, so the last few sets will be up soon!

Romulo Rejon - Great! I was so short of time that I did this part of the trip by plane!

Gunung Bromo | East Java

The coldest place I’ve been in recent history.  Cold, windy, and *so* much fun.  The best part of putting this post together was reliving the ridiculousness of this day.

We packed 6 people + the driver into a jeep at 3:30am to go see sunrise over the mountain, rode tiny horses part of the way – just because we could, and were almost blown off the mountain by gale-force winds to see… NOTHING!  Bromo was covered in clouds the entire time we were there and we spent a lot of the time in thick fog, having our faces sandblasted on the Sea of Sand.  It would have been a legendary travel failure if I wasn’t with such an awesome group of friends.

Oh, and just for good measure, I quite nearly threw one of my rather expensive lenses off the volcano. Because that’s how I roll.

I may have to go back to Bromo again when it’s not low season to try again to catch those awesome postcard views of the sun rising over the volcanos.

Romulo Rejon - Hahaha I had a similar experience! Terrible weather and no views from Penanjakan viewpoint! Plus it was a hindu festival and it was crowded with locals climbing to the mountain to do some offerings… A great day though!
