This blog is a platform to share what I love in life: food (eat), travel (play), photography (art) and life (thoughts and ideas). With passion for food, I share my foodie adventures and indulgences here. “There is no love sincerer than the love of food.”

Traveling makes us a better human being as we recognise the similarities and celebrate the differences of cultures between where we travel to and where we come from. “The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”

Photography do more than just capturing the best moments in our lives; they also help us tell our life stories. “Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

  1. How come put everyone???
    This group of ppl is not really iPhone user.We cannot blame rumors info because social technology so powerful and info leaked very difficult to control. Important is Apple done good job to launch new version of iPhone with better dimension body with quality material. Furthermore is iPhone come with powerful iOS 6.0 with it make the iPhone more valueable than the physical phone only.
