Let Me Show You My Toys 2018: Batam Getaway


I had the chance to take a quick getaway outside of Singapore in the first days of 2018, and brought along some toys to take pictures with - something I've not done in a long time, actually!

Here are some Instagrammed snaps to share, which features quite a number with "FOOD" (which I know tends to gets some flack with some of my IG followers, hence I'd had some of the pics on my own personal IG :p) and other mundane activities that Batam could offer. Hey, "mundanity" works for me, okay? Not everyone is built for the "high-life", yeh? LOL

ENJOY :)

I used to adore taking pictures with toys, but have recently found it "less joyful", especially when my "physicality" is challenged LOL - which means low-angled off-the-ground point-of-views are out (unless from a raised platform). I personally liked photographing my toys from their eye-line, or low-up ("Hero"-shot), rather than a human's eye-level down at the toy - that is when they actually feel like "toys", you know? Or more likely it is my personal preference, and that maybe I should rethink my said-preference?

But then again, after nearly 8 years since surviving Stroke, I reckon I would've changed by now though, LOL!

Won't stop me from taking pictures of toys (AND pictures of toys with food) though! I've just need to figure out how to bring along LARGER sized toys when I'm traveling next time! LOL
