Buckingham Palace

I am now in the process of trying to put some of my photos back onto Adobe Creative Cloud. What I realised is that if I sync my photos from Lightroom Classic, it does not take any space in comparison to migrating it thru Lightroom CC (or now called as Lightroom). This is very confusing but I guess I do have some options to play around with for my older photos.

While going around trying to move my photos from its “Folder” in the computer to “Synced Collection”, I obviously will see some of the photos that will catch my attention. I do like Lightroom but the problem is that the ability to do selective adjustments is not as good as Lightroom Classic. As such, for now I will still go on a hybrid mode. My problem is that my storage is still very low which is just 100GB. I calculated, with the new ARW files that I have from my Sony camera, I can only store about 1250 photos. Definitely won’t be enough for my holidays. When I contacted support 2 days ago, they mentioned that the new plan for storage will come out on 7th June. Let’s see whether there will be plan for Malaysia. It’ll be awesome to be able to put all my photos on cloud. Less headache!

Back to the photos, following is a newly revisited photo of Buckingham Palace. I guess when I start looking at my old photos, few photos caught my attention and this is definitely one of them.

The next photo is the statue that located in front of the palace. Awesome place indeed. I’ve stayed in UK for 3 years and I never visited. I only visited when I went to London after finishing my work visit in Manchester.

London – Brewed Cocoa

L1020360.jpg

Few years ago (2016) – I made a trip to London. It was business trip to bring clients to see Fjord – which was an acquisition by Accenture. The clients were already in London and they asked if I can organize a session with Fjord. At that time, Fjord wasn’t in South East Asia yet, therefore the best place to visit was London.

I took some time off after the trip to walk around London. One of the places I went was this chocolate place(Mast Chocolate). Can’t remember the name – but it originated from New York. I was there because my friend wanted some and I did buy. As it was cold, I couldn’t resist but try the hot chocolate. Me being me, wanted to try some interesting, and what I did was to try out this brewed cocoa (beans). Nope – its not hot chocolate!

The photo above shows the siphon heating up. Hey – I am a gadget person, obviously cool toy like that will interest me, hence I was sucked into buying the cocoa drink (nope – its not hot chocolate!)

Ok – I didn’t take picture of the ready product. Honestly – as far as I remember, it did not taste great. In fact – it was the most expensive drink and it taste like.. .errrrk!

Honestly – for those that has not try such drink should go ahead and try it! Its probably an acquired taste!

London Trip – Shad

Shad Thames is a history riverside street along the Thames River. It starts from the Tower Bridge and goes along. It is not opened to traffic (I think!) and has an array of pubs and cafes that’s popular with the public.



When I was there few months back, it was quite empty and was pretty pleasant to stroll around. I was going around to the backlanes and did not stopped for coffee at all.


The photo below shows the typical lane from the other side. Its not so pretty come to think of it. But I guess when it is all covered, it’s pretty awesome.


The photo below shows the view of the Tower Bridge that can be seen from the back lanes of Shad. It goes along the river and provide good vantage point to have a nice perspective of the bridge.


Whilst going thru the photos, saw this photo. Thought its also a good photo. Maybe more of advertising for EY ??
