In the past few months of the last year, I’ve been through some interesting places with nary a desk and only new sights to see. I’ve been fortunate enough to see the sun rise from the serene, uninterrupted vistas of Africa to the familiar sight of it cascading upon New York’s skyline.
In-between the two, I’ve had the pleasure to meet even more old & new friends in other new places. I’ve also had the pleasure to share delicacies with these wonderful companions. Gazelles and crocodile tail by a grill-house in Africa, Lobsters and oysters by an Italian cafe off Africa’s port, Belgian waffles in an Ohio market, ramen in New York’s strip of Japan-town, Peking duck in Singapore and roadside goat stews + skewers by Jakarta, my hometown. The previous sentence has only hinted at the other equally wondrous things I got to taste and experience in each of those spots.
All this traveling has amounted to piles of new sights to document, set several new projects in motion, both in collaborative and solo efforts and in new mediums I am currently learning.
As 2011 starts, I want to take the time and words to appreciate those who’ve stuck around by me and hope 2011 will prove to be another exciting blank canvas to make our marks on. If this is your first visit, you will be most welcome to stick around for more or sift through the archive.
