Some useful tips for droning in the Maldives
In this short article, I would like to share some practical tips about drone photography in the Maldives. The gorgeous seascape and immense beauty of the oceanic location make drone photography and videography a compelling endeavour. Droning opens up angles of view not available to eye level photography. With a well-made drone, you are like an eagle in skies, taking in the bird's eyes view of the paradise.
5 Reasons why I don't like the Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi
There is so much hype about the Maldives being a paradise with the unbelievable turquoise sea with gin clear water and vibrant marine life. I just don't understand why.

Grand Park Kodhipparu, the natural choice for a quick getaway
A vacation to the Maldives can be a bucket-list event for many travellers. But the wide range of resorts renders decision-making a challenging task.

1st-Timer New Zealand South Island Self-Drive Road Trip
To many who have yet to visit New Zealand, the impression of the country invariably conjures up imagery of sheep (tons of them), rolling vista of mountain ranges with wispy white clouds, the famed All Blacks Rugby team and tattooed wide-eyed Maori warriors sticking their tongues out in a Haka dance. Yes, New Zealand has all this but much much more. As a travel photographer, I can say with conviction that this...

Tasmania Convoy Adventure September 2017
This 8D7N self-drive convoy adventure was organised by Jetabout Holidays and held from the 21-28 September 2017. To ensure a better trip experience, participants and cars were kept to a manageable amount. In total, we had seven attendees with Cindy Loo (trip guide and facilitator) and myself included.
