What I am Doing Now (9 December 2022)
In the whole of last week, I was in Fukuoka, Japan with my family. It’s where I’m originally from, and my first visit since 2019 (obviously due to COVID).
It was getting into winter, so a little too cold to me (about 20 degrees lower than Singapore). To be honest, hard to describe my feeling being in Japan. 😅 Surely felt a strong sense of nostalgia, as I’ve spent half of my life there, but at the same time I know I don’t really belong there. Growing up, I was a bit like a social outcast, and I still feel like a loser whenever I’m back there although I’ve managed to build a relatively decent life in Singapore. 😅
On the photography front, I got a few clear evenings to go and shoot cityscapes. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to capture anything particularly good, but still enjoyed being in the place, in the moment. In fact, it was my first time in three years shooting cityscapes outside Singapore. I had long waited for this occasion to come, so I was just happy being there, feeling the warmth of golden hour light in the chilly winter wind. 😀

NEVER MISS A POST
It’s always good to visit home and I think sometimes living somewhere else we can just feel different due to starting fresh and it being a new environment!
Yes, that’s true! After retiring, we’re hoping to live in Japan for 3 months per year. It’ll be fun if we choose different cities every year. 😀
