Hello everyone, how have you been doing since I last popped by? :)
Besides blogging my photographs and travels at Green Tea Fields, I am also one-half of the blog Coffee Table People. My friend, C, and I started it in April this year and our basic modus operandi is to cover interesting cafe concepts in Singapore and beyond. I provide the photography (we feature only film photography for our cafe reviews), C provides the words, and together we get to drink a lot of coffee and tea. Not bad, eh? Here are some of my favourite photographs from our various jaunts!
Hello, it’s Michelle, back in the don’t kay siao house again with more Bangkok photos to share!
I have been to Bangkok quite a few times in the past few years but this trip was the first time that I ventured into Bangkok’s Chinatown. Being quite a fair distance from Bangkok central where I was stayed, I hailed a tuk-tuk to get there. It was a long way through lots of dark and gloomy streets before the tuk-tuk suddenly burst out into this bright and rowdy thoroughfare that instantly reminded me of Hong Kong! It was incredible! All the street hawkers were out there doing their thing, cooking up a storm and trying to tempt the hungry souls walking past them. After having my fill of tomyum soup, I eventually ended up in a quiet sidelane for desserts where the hawkers catered more to the residents rather than the tourists. If you haven’t been to Bangkok’s Chinatown yet, make sure you mark it down in your itinerary the next time!
Hi everyone, this is Michelle from Green Tea Fields, keeping you company for the next few days while Euphemia is partying it up in Bangkok! Euphemia and I met over the internet, I think, some time after my trip to Seoul earlier this April. Being big fans of both Seoul and film photography, we immediately bonded and have been chatting up a storm on Twitter ever since! And when she asked me to guest blog for her while she was away, I immediately said “YES”!
Today, I am going to share my photographs of the trip I made to Bangkok earlier this year. It was a quick three-day jaunt but I enjoyed being there for the first time since I started film photography. To me, Bangkok is a wonderfully atmospheric and gritty sort of city, and I naturally gravitated towards using a black and white film when I was deciding on the type of films to bring. I am not particularly a black and white film type of person but for once, the film was just screaming at me to pop it into the camera and I am so glad I did. These are some of my favourites from the roll, I hope you enjoy them and I will be back in a bit with more photographs, of bangkok in colour, the next time.
