WHP: Nostalgia

the white project - nostalgia post

Two of my friends from my hometown in Malacca (Malaysia) came to visit Sydney a couple of weeks ago. And they came with gifts.

Nostalgic gifts!

From a few cup noodles that we used to eat during our highschool days, to childhood snacks and even some paper lanterns for the Moon Cake festival month!

About a week later after they left, I received a postcard in the mail, reminding me the days we spent going out and also the nights we spent having catch ups and deep talks. I don’t do this very often but somehow it felt good to have nice conversations with old pals. 🙂

It also feels different when you get to talk in comfort and not having to think about what time it is because it’s getting late and you have to leave to go home soon.

Thanks for coming guys! Come back again next time or maybe we’ll meet somewhere in between for a holiday!

Autumn Pictures Part 2 – Blue Mountains Botanic Garden

Hello hello!

I’m back with the second part of my autumn pictures that was taken this year from the Blue Mountains Botanic Gardens. Since it was a last minute one day trip, there was not enough time to go through the whole Botanic Garden over there. But I think we managed to cover half of the place? And managed to take some pretty good photos too.

Autumn Pictures Part 1 – Blackheath

It’s the first of September!! Spring time!

Winter has come and gone and I still have not posted any of my autumn pictures from this year! I’m two seasons away!! >.<

I went on a day trip to the Blue Mountains sometime back in… May. And here are some shots from one of the housing areas in Blackheath. I really love the colors here. Especially when the sun shines through the leaves. How beautiful is nature!

TWP: Lazy Days

So I’m really back dated with my posts. I know I said that I’ll be posting more soon but I ended up being lazy and side tracked with mobile phone games, people visiting, watching tv shows and movies.

In the last few months, basically since the start of winter, I’ve been spending a whole lot of time playing Tsum Tsum (click here for iOS and here for Android). I’ve also spent quite a lot of time binge watching tv shows.

Since we signed up for Netflix in June, I have watched the complete season of Girlboss, The Crown, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and season 1 of Daredevil. Currently watching – Daredevil season 2 and Limitless. On top of that, I’m also watching Game of Thrones which is not on Netflix. Once I’m done with Daredevil, the next series to catch up on is The Defenders. Anyone watching any of those shows that I just mentioned?

Anyway, here’s a picture of some tea that I had a while back. Seems fitting for the Lazy Days title of this post ;P

tea and paper flowers

These paper daisy flowers are actually quite nice to have. The last quite a while before everything starts to wither. Even when it does wither, some of the colors are still there! I’m gonna try buy these flowers again the next time I see them.

It’s 1.06AM at the moment. So I’m gonna stop here and call it a night.

Good night!

Sunday – Centennial Park’s Duck Pond

The weather last Sunday was great. It wasn’t really cold and it was also pretty sunny. Since we had time after watching the Spider Man movie, we decided to head over to Centennial Park to feed the ducks again before the sun sets.

Here are some of the photos from Centennial Park’s Duck Pond.

TWP: Snail Mail

It’s not often that I get mails from my friends. Until this last two years, I seem to be getting quite a few surprises in the mail! Ok, maybe not all of them are surprises since they had given me a heads up that there’s something coming or they’ll be asking because it’s been quite a while since they have sent it and there was still no news from me. I really don’t know why AusPost always takes so long to process and deliver personal mails.

My most recent little parcel from a friend came in a month ago. And it consist of a little warm message plus a few gifts 🙂

It’s a nice feeling to receive a snail mail from time to time 🙂

Thanks for the gift!

I’m currently transferring my pictures over to my computer and will sort them out soon. Once I’ve done that, I’ll start posting up more pictures and properly blogging again.

Stay tune alright… more posts coming over to the blog soon.

Here’s a picture of a cute doggy for now. And thanks for stopping by!

TWP: Fallen Flowers – Peonies

the white project fallen flowers

I posted these photos on my second Instagram account where all my white project photos are on. If you haven’t followed it yet, click on the link and follow! Leave a comment and say HI! I’d be happy to respond 🙂

These photos were taken from ages ago actually. Since the start of the year. I bought the peonies during the Christmas week and these photos were taken the week after – when the peonies were already withering. They sure don’t last very long… but they are so beautiful when they blossom.

TWP: Henri Cartier Bresson Flatlay

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.” ― Henri Cartier-Bresson


Henri Cartier Bresson.

Have you heard of him? He’s a great street photographer. In fact, according to Wiki, he’s the one who pioneered the genre of street photography. If you love street photography and you have not heard of him, I recommend that you google up and take a look at some of his photos. They are pretty inspiring even for me (a person who is not into street photography). If you prefer to see his work not on a screen, head over to a bookstore and look out for his book. I know Kinokuniya has a copy.

Black Wattle Bay

“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.”
― Rabindranath Tagore, Stray Birds


Here are some photos that I took from Black Wattle Bay that I went over a month ago. I know my blog posts are not really “current” and they are mostly throwbacks of old photos. It’s not every day that I am out and about so sometimes I run out of things to blog about, so I usually do throwbacks. Plus most of the pictures I post on instagram are the ones that are in here. I also don’t post those photos right away. Haha. #ThrowbackQueen

If you’re living in Sydney and you want to go somewhere new for a walk/stroll at the park, here’s a good option. Another plus point for this place is that it is DOG FRIENDLY!
