It's seems fitting to visit Toby's Estate with my Australia travel buddy, TK. I had a pot of Chemex, she had a cup of latte. It almost felt like we were back in Melbourne, enjoying the sunshine and savouring freedom.

Last Sunday, I finished an entire roll of film snapping my meet-ups with friends. When I got home, I took out my bike and cycled around the neighbourhood, enjoying golden hour. Since I am usually in the office during that period of time, I find myself savouring golden hour when I get the chance to experience it.

It's been a crazy crazy two weeks at work since I got back from Taipei. 12 hour days and going back on the weekends is the new normal for me. This Sunday, I am going to use my precious time to catch up with some of my best friends, shoot some photos and eat some good food! Everyone, you have an excellent day too!

Since my return from Taipei, I have been drowning under huge piles of work so it's going to take me awhile to upload and post my film photographs of Taipei. So here's a little glimpse into this dreamy city through my instagram photos (follow me @greenteafields).
Don't you love how time seems to slow down during vacation, my one week in Taipei felt like a really long time. We did the touristy things but also found the time to watch a movie, laze around our apartment and sing karaoke. Not that I am saying one week was enough, I really need more time to explore all the nooks and crannies hiding in the backlanes. My friends and I have hatched a plan to make our way back to Taipei in April next year for the spring music festivals. Here's hoping the universe makes it happen!
In other news,
I am running a 5km tomorrow! I am apprehensive because I haven't been training for it as I needed to. My time is embarrassingly high. I hope that I can do good tomorrow!

Back in April, C invited me to a Spa-rty (how clever) co-organised by Vanity Trove, Masego The Safari Spa, My Spring Fling and Make Up Forever. She thought it would be fun for me to document this event on film! As I was shooting, I was had my doubts whether the film would be ok because the venue was really dark and lit only by safari lamps. Very atmospheric and appropriate for a spa, not so much for photography. I saw all these and yet I decided to pop in a roll of Ferrania Solaris 100 film rather than a higher iso film. I tend to choose my film on gut instinct rather than weighing all the pros and cons. I did have many images that was not usable due to motion and lack of light but I am happy with the ones that came out because I felt they reflected the mood and lighting of the space very nicely.
