    I hope to keep this thread updated with little stories and pics as the trip goes by.

    Lenses I've taken with me are pana 12-35mm, oly 17mm 1.8, oly 40-150mm. I've bought a 58mm polariser (fits both the 12-35 and 40-150), mini tripod (ultrapod II), lots of spare batteries, lots of memory cards. Macbook air to doing some post processing on road.

    First stop a 5 hour transit in singapore airport. We had a late night flight, so actually spent most the time sleeping on their lounges there. I have to say singapore airport is one of the best airports I've been to. Free wifi, lots of shops, restaurants, various gardens inside, free chairs that massage your legs!

    I can tell you there is no better airport to be "stuck" in than Singapore. Free movie theater too.

    With an empty stomach, a healthy appetite, and an adventurous palate, there is no better country to be stuck in than Taiwan.

    Nice pics so far!

    I've still got a couple more weeks in taiwan. There should be more shots to come.

    Yep, loving the food so far! I'll probably be gaining a few kilos by the end of this :)

    Flora and Fauna in Ma-kau ecological park, Yilan, Taiwan

    We just came back from a visit to ma-kau ecological park. One of the highlights of this region are the 'divine trees', various cyprus trees up to thousands of years old, named after famous figures from chinese history.

    Small lake near our accommodation (Ming Shih):

    One of the 61 divine cyprus trees. There were more impressive and older trees, but it was hard getting good shots of them.

    +1 for singapore airport. It's by far the best airport i've been on. The gardens, the move theatre, the palm trees in the middle of the airport. Awesome!

    Looking forward to your next destination
