Holidays ending, Uni starting again...

Woo!! Just watched London Olympics 2012 Opening Ceremony! It's really awesome! I watched it on Channel 5. But for everyone not in Singapore, and wants to watch, this is the official url on YouTube. :) Hope this helps!

Year 3 university is almost starting, that means holidays ending :( Soon there's going to be projects, tests, exams... For the last few days of my holiday, i'll be going through the wonderful photos that Camy has taken, and then create something nice that will hopefully help her to destress.

University studies brings about a new level of responsibility, pressure, stress and commitment. This is something that will make an impression on our lives as we move forward into the society in future. The resilience required to stay on track is likened to an insurmountable willpower that we need to build up and maintain. To all university students, stay strong. To Camy, remember your strengths and keep in mind that health is still the most important. Take care!!!

Camy, here are some more photos i've taken in the past... How are they? :)

Old-style "Fans" on sale at Chinatown.

Guess what's this? Taken at night, outside VivoCity

Somewhere in Sentosa...

My favourite set of colour pencils!!!

Since you only visited Singapore once, maybe come again and visit Singapore during your holidays, i'll show you around to beautiful places where you can take more photos ok? :)

University life.... ah... The ups and downs, happiness and sadness, good and bad of it, can really be written into a very very long story.....

Past Photos

Helo. For this post, i'll begin with some images to share!

Here's a couple of picture's i've taken in the not so distant past.

Singapore's well known 佛牙寺!

Somewhere in Sentosa.

Some massive decorative feature. Near VivoCity i think.

Guess where I took this?

They were meant for my school assignment.  Yes it is, I took a module that required students to take photos based on photography rules, such as vertical/horizontal lines, perspective, focal points and the "Rule of Thirds" etc... It was a fun trip that a few of us organized to go outside of school to take those photographs. Really fun, meaningful, and satisfying too.

I've got lots more pictures, but i'm not a good photographer. Plus, the photographs were taken with a Olympus 3.2MP camera so the quality leaves much to be desired. Nevertheless, the effects that I sought were achieved after that many photographs taken, and with encouragement from my group of friends, who were also taking photographs for the same purpose too!

I'm definitely looking forward to more photography trips around Singapore, discovering the beauty of the things around us.

Some Thoughts

In Singapore there're really alot of beautiful places, even at shopping malls.. These places are picturesque, and when in the hands of a capable photographer, it can really mean very amazing outcomes.

Brainstorming for music

I am currently trying to think of ideas to create the first piece of music for the photographs taken by Camy. She has so many wonderful photographs that it is difficult to make a choice amongst them.

Camy, if you're reading my blog, I thought this would be an alternative way to contact you other than writing comments on your blog, seeing that you are busy these days and seldom go to your blog. Hope you're doing well in university. I'll continue to work on the music piece and hopefully get it completed soon. When is your holidays coming?

My First Post!

This is my new blog. I've named it A-M-E-Life, which is the short form for "A Musically Enchanted Life". Yes, some may feel that this blog looks familiar, even the name too. I've begun writing this blog because I've been inspired by this very amazing girl with superb photography skills. I'll dedicate my first post to her.

She's a young girl who's able to perfectly use the camera shutters to capture the beautiful moments of life. A person may be enamoured by beautiful scenery, but this girl is able to capture this scenery at the very apex of it's elegance, further enhancing the granduer of the scene. This wonderful girl, her name is Camy. =)

Hmmm so my reader (if anyone comes at all) may ask what has photography got to do with me naming this blog with something related to music. Well, I've been inspired by Camy's passion for photography and the fantastic photos that she's taken that I've decided to try and write original music pieces that can bring out the story and beauty of the photos to a new level. I'm not a very experienced musician, but I will try my best. Hence I've named this blog with something related to music.

Camy, thank you for inspiring me! ^^

P.S. If you read my blog url, does it sound familiar? =P About the template i use, i like black colour. And although it's quite similar to your blog, i'm actually still learning HTML and other programming languages, so i will change my template sometime soon.
