I am still alive!

Just a quick post to let y’all know I’m still here. I’ve been totally consumed with the project I’ve been working on for my masters degree. The good news is I will have everything submitted by the end of the day next Monday (June 12). I’ll be able to have a life once more, and […]

2016 In Retrospect (PART 2 – Siem Reap and Battambang)

I know it’s getting a bit late for 2016 retrospective posts, but I’ve been busy. Well, not really, but anyway… The second half of my trip let me tick one thing of the bucket list: see Angkor. And I figured if I’m gonna see Angkor, why not REALLY see it? So I contacted the APSARA […]

2016 in Retrospect (Part 1 – Phnom Penh: Street Art, Sex Workers and Spiders)

One door closes – the end of my time with Oi Vietnam

OK, this is certainly not new news, but news I can’t neglect to share here any longer… I am no longer working as staff photographer for Oi Vietnam. While there are stories floating around that I am returning to Australia very soon, I will not be leaving Vietnam until the end of the year or […]

Dinner With Locals in Saigon

Last week, thanks to Withlocals, I experienced an amazing Vietnamese banquet prepared by a former restauranteur. Withlocals is a great way to really experience the local culture when travelling overseas. One kind of experience that can be arranged via their website is to enjoy an authentic home-cooked meal in the home of a local family. […]
