Happy at Sea

It’s been a year since I wrote something personal-ish, glad I have the time to sit down and start writing again.

A week ago, we (Dash & I) went to Phuket, Thailand for a short break. It was our first ever trip to Thailand. As you all know, we have tons of beautiful beaches in the Philippines so I wasn’t expecting so much on this trip. We took a morning flight from Singapore via Jetstar. We were so giddy and excited cause the last time we traveled together via plane was back in 2014. After the 2 hour flight from Singapore, we finally reached our destination – Phuket.

Here are some of the photos I took from our trip. We stayed at Moevenpick Resort & Spa Karon – which is an hour and a half drive from Phuket International Airport (HKT).

On our first day, we watched the sunset and enjoyed the golden sand of Karon Beach.
I personally loved the color of the sunset – it looks like rose quartz with a touch of serenity and a bit of orange, a sunset which doesn’t feel sad at all.

 

As our trip is something that’s free and easy, we didn’t have any itinerary to follow. We literally took our time.

On our second day. We had a decent breakfast buffet at the hotel, went back to our room, took a nap and before noontime, we found ourselves getting ready to go to Patong Beach. After our simple yet delicious lunch by the street – we couldn’t wait any longer to lounge by the beach.

We rented umbrella seats near the shore and started people watching, taking photos, drinking our fave watermelon shake and sharing good conversations.

We ended our second day watching the sunset at Patong Beach, which has a different vibe from Karon Beach. After the sunset, we rode a Tuk Tuk back to Karon, and had a nice dinner outside the hotel.

Overall, this short trip is one of my favorites. The sea serves as my therapy and it gave me a time to breath and just take it all in.

I can’t wait to go on a trip again.

Birthday present from my partner

My xxth birthday is fast approaching and my partner bought a Lego Creator 31012 – Family House last weekend as birthday present.  I am so happy and thrilled as this is my first creator set.

31012

The house design is pretty realistic and I like the color combinations very much. It took me about 3 hours to finish building. The box contains 9 whopping bags (unnumbered). This set includes a light brick which lights up the house with a nice warm light in the right bigger portion of the house.

Here’s a photo of the complete house with my Simpson’s Family and some DC Figures.

Thank you Mahal! 🙂

The joy of Legography

I used to own Lego bricks and Lego Minifigures back when I was small, around 8 years old to be precise. When my younger brother was born, I had to share my toys and then the figures and bricks started to get missing.

My love for Photography on the other hand started when I was appointed as a student photojournalist  for a school paper during primary school days.

Since, I love Lego and Photography,  it only seemed natural to mix then.

Legography a term used by Andrew Whyte is the art of bringing a 1.5 inches plastic figure to life through photos.

I put up this blog to document the photos I took and to share joy to other Lego enthusiasts.

Enjoy!
