bougainvillea



Bougainvillea is a genus of flowering plants native to the tropical and subtropical regions of South America from Brazil west to Peru and south to southern Argentina (Chubut Province). However, we also have it here in Singapore. Maybe they used to be 'presents' from these countries :D

at the point of taking this photo today, i chanced upon this particular bracts, which was strangely the one amongst the thousands and millions of chartreuse green leaves (they usually grow alot of bracts)

Zsolt made a video clip with beginning frames of this plant, if you are curious, you are welcome to take a look:)
In it you can also see my very first 'chasing the sunset' video captured in April

See, I told you i'm ''a Sky-Crzy'' :p





in fact, i am more like a ''sunset-crzy'', i am also a ''sun tanning crzy'' becos i love the sunshine days :D i love the beach, sea, the sand and the SKY!!...

today, i can't wait to share with you my ''chasing of the sunset'', so click and you'll experience it...

why aren't you seeing skyscrapers instead?




i have always been trying to imagine myself living in days when singapore was just a small fishing village. in it, the sky above my head, is the same, jus not the same 'scene' everytime.

Now we have the city skyscrapers which everyone is proud of.
In national day theme videos, we often get exposed to the transitions. And it had always amazed me, how in short time of 40 years, we became a modern cosmopolitan city.

but too much of anything is no good. the same for commercialisation.

i prefer to watch sunsets and the beautiful spectrum of colours in the sky immediately became a big screen in front of your eyes. However, it is a 10minutes scene only. To me it is enough. To see the beautiful 10 minutes in a different way (almost different every other day)

16,000 delegates - IMF in Singapore



About 16,000 delegates and observers are here in Singapore to participate in the Annual Meetings.

It was said that the choice of Singapore as the location for the Annual Meetings is recognition of our commitment to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group, effort and progress made in the development of the financial sector, our pro-business environment and excellent infrastructure.

For the past ten days, I read some reports on the newspapers and many overseas delegates appreciated our transportation system other than the clean and green garden city!

What do you call living in a place like a garden?



some say we live in a garden city.
some say we live in a park:)



everywhere you go in Singapore, you are bound to see flowers, grass and trees like how you experience in a park or garden. With our climate, we get to see beautiful flowers such as the one above is called IXORA. We dun have to go to any park to have some bits of nature. Becos once we got out of the lifts of the block we live in, you're immediately within a GARDEN :) and it's usually a beautiful one...

street lights



these street lights were just opposite the multi-storey carpark near my block.
at this hour, about 7.05pm it has a wonderful blue colour setting the romantic mood towards the night:)
i learnt these bits and pieces of photography from jeff. He's a professional photographer whom i did his website. Observing his photos taught me about perspective, and i have like that effect ever since the first time i tried.

There is another moment in the morning (he said) when you have to wait before dawn, you can capture moments with hues of pink and lilac and violet...i am sure i want to capture that one day.

Are our roads the same?



This moment was raining and I was on the public bus. I kind of like this photo for it being simple in composition and the natural effect by the rain waters on the glass window which became translucent moments later.

zannnie


my name.

many wondered how i got my name.

well, i named it myself becos i had always wanted to be HAPPY.
like that crzy big laughters kind of 'crzily happy':) so with this name 'zannnie' that sounds like zany.

i love to look at the sky, somehow it makes me feel the issues at hand had diminished. So whenever i encounter a challenge in life, i'll look up and be inspired. So you can imagine my photos and videos archives with many moments of sunsets, sea, sun and relaxing beaches.

having triple 'n' was becos registering it in anywhere had always been easier.
and best of all, i dun have to remember so many different usernames for the different blogs that i registers myself to

welcome to my daily photo blog!
