Instameet: Health & Wellness.

Witness me fail spectacularly at nailing the theme for October's instameet: Health & Wellness. It was the National Health and Sport Day, and we went to take a walk along Tama River. We were suppose to take pictures of, you know, anything that's related to health thingamajig, and that's totally…

Instameet: Kind Comments

In conjunction with Instagram Worldwide Instameet with "Kind Comments" as the theme, the usual peeps decided to go with "rainbow" to go with it... because we're "kind" is not exactly what I would describe myself as. Wearing striking coloured wears, we gathered in Shinjuku,…

Instameet: Mountain Day

The next instameet falls on yet another public holiday: Mountain Day. Hence, the organisers decided that we should head into the mountains, and turn it into a BBQ chill time next to a river; something that we have never done before. We gathered at Oku-tama Station and took a short…

Instameet: Kasai Rinkai

It's Sea Day in Japan, so we went to see the sea. We couldn't travel far to see the beautiful beaches, so.. the absolutely typical not-so-clean yet not-so-dirty beaches of Chiba will do. We went to Kasai Rinkai Park in Chiba; just an hour train ride away from Tokyo. Summer…

Instameet: Poppies

Oh, what are the chances? I'm back here again; but this time, I am not alone. Although this time, it was slightly before peak time, but who cares, I AM NOT ALONE. We went to the same Poppy Hills in Saitama, and the weather was hotter than I remembered. There's…

Instameet: Naritasan

We went to Narita. No, not the airport, but the town that hosts the airport. Yeah, I just learn that there's actually pretty interesting spots in this area. There are shrines, a (really) huge park and of course, the typical tourist trap shopping alleys. Apparently there was a parade happening…

Instameet: Kindness

It's Worldwide Instameet 15, and the theme was KINDNESS. Tough theme, especially when I don't consider myself to be "kind". We gathered at Shinjuku Gyoen. It was definitely one of the biggest instameet, but sadly, the weather was totally not cool with us. No, sorry, it was too…

Instameet: Mall

We went...to a shopping complex, in Tachikawa. Then I realised that, damn, I don't think I've been to an actual shopping complex like those back in Malaysia here in Japan. No, those shopping complexes attached to the train station doesn't count; those are just "train stations". ..okay,…

Instameet: Film

The first instameet for the year, and the theme is something different, something fun: Film. (or anything analogue). Yeah.. totally wanted to bring a wet-plate and make peeps stay still for an hour, and develop pictures on the spot as if it was the 1850's. I kid. I kid. I…

Instameet: Koyo Hike

Ah..it's autumn, my favourite season of the year. Colour explosions everywhere. Lovely. Naturally, capturing autumn was THE obvious choice for the next instameet theme. Seeing that I'll miss autumn's peak in Tokyo (flying back to Malaysia in mid Nov), this is a good chance for me to capture the…
