I have probably posted this so many times, this is still my favorite picture of all time. Its a testament that you do not need to have a damn good camera to be able to take picture. Whats needed is the hands to click the shutter (and good composition).
Back in the days when I was active in photography, I did some charity work as part of Photomalaysia forum where we help giving kids the opportunity to explore photography thru a program called KidsKlick.
This was an awesome program. Here is an example of the kids that we showcase. You can see how happy they were.
Earlier this year – I made the decision to travel. In the past couple of years, I’ve been pushing more travelling because of my high stress work environment. Finally – after many years of working extremely hard (allegedly), I decided to pull the plug to move on to a better environment. Sometimes – we have to make drastic actions. I made the move out of consulting and got into banking. Life I must say is much more relaxing now, lot less stress compared to before.
Before I moved on to greener pasture, I took a month off and decided to travel to Japan for 1 month. It was one of the best adventure that I ever had in my life. Travelling without the the need to think about work is probably the best thing ever. And now, 4 months on – I am feeling the itch to travel. Where should I go?
In the past, when I travel, I always got stuck with email from back home, and had to attend few conference calls as needed. Finally – as I left my job I managed to leave all that in the past and just focus on travelling. I do wish I took a longer leave but I didn’t want to leave work too long. With much more leave, I should be able to travel more! With banking – there’s a compulsory block leave that I must take, as such I will travel more this year.
Can see from the above – I was so happy. Making idiot poses to be honest! Question is – where should I go. I do have about 23 days of leave this year and I do intend to take all the leave! I must.
