Mekong River is the longest river of Southeast Asia. Rising in southern Qinghai province, China, it flows south through eastern Tibet and across the highlands of Yunnan province. It then forms part of the border between Myanmar (Burma) and Laos, as well as between Laos and Thailand. It runs through Laos and Cambodia before entering the South China Sea in a delta south of Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam after a course of 2,700 mi (4,350 km).

Batam shores are not well-known as a place for tourist attraction.

Yet the beauty revealed for those who diligently seek…

This photo was taken very early in the morning when I strolled at the deserted beach.


Tried to sit down to enjoy the morning and be dramatic on this plastic bench, before it gave away.

Oh well, time to exercise and lose some weight…

Good morning guys!

Been awhile since my last posting, got few things I want to update all of you.

Recently I sold away my SONY and bought a NIKON D300S

DSLR Nikon D300s

For the lens, I have my solid wide angle  Nikkor 35mm f/2 AF

I bought a new standard lens together with the body, Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

Sigma 50mm F1.4 EX DG HSM

I am very happy with the performance of both lenses, which I will talk more about these in the near future.

You can check out what are the latest gears that VanillaSeven team use during their photo taking HERE.

And these are the panoramic shots that I took at Singapore and Kallang River.
