Millennials questionable study habits

Warning: rant coming. If you are a millennial, I would advise  you to pay attention. Not only to the advice in this post, but attention in general. Because your attention seems to be mostly focused on your phone or laptop. And it’s not something unique for class. Coming to Singapore, I quickly concluded that many […]

Once-a-month laundry project

As part of my 2018 project to simplify my daily life as much as possible, I took a look at regularly recurring chores to see if there was a way to optimize them. The main idea behind optimization is to look for patterns of actions that you repeat, and try to perform the action as […]

I’m abandoning Canon’s holy trinity

I’m one of the fortunate photographers lucky enough to own three Canon lenses that together are referred to “the holy trinity”.  The holy trinity means a constant aperture of f/2.8 from 16 mm up to 200 mm range. Any owner of the holy trinity can boast about owning three of the finest lenses ever produced […]

Getting a Korean haircut

I’ve walked by a Korean barbershop here at the NTU campus, and as my hair has grown, so has my curiosity to try the place. Could it beat my best hair experience ever – getting the perfect hair cut from an old, paper thin lady in a Bangkok back alley, without ever exchanging a single […]

Singapore: first 2 weeks updated summary

After being here in this cool country for about two and a half weeks, I figured it would be cool to write a shorter summary of what it’s been like, what I’ve done and update my impressions. My first impressions with Singapore are very good! It’s apparent that they’ve successfully built a well functioning country […]

Royal DJ Academy: Week 3; final two days!

Friday We got to practice our battle sets in Wall club but the teachers were not present. Both Cornelia’s and Karolis sets were laden with quite heavy house, so I purposely chose to start mine with R&B and reggaeton. My plan was to appeal to the ladies in the crowd and then increase the tempo […]

Royal DJ Academy: Week 3; day 2,3,4

Tuesday Tonight I was set to play in Pepe’s bodega. I was very confident from last nights successful performance at Wall! Pepe’s bodega turned out to be much harder. There is a dance floor there and the music is much louder. To maintain the energy and keep people dancing, one has to change songs faster […]
