TEMPLE HOPPING | Travelling in Penang

by evilnymphstuff

Yep, temple hopping, a new expression I just made up. And yep, that’s mostly what I did for the first days of my 3-nights trip to Penang.

On the first day of our arrival, it was already late afternoon, and it was too bad that temples close quite early. But well, I could still take in the beautiful elaborated temple roofs and temple wall paintings all around Georgetown…

Yet, as the darkness of the night was closing in, an unexpected pleasant surprise awaited us at the end of the jetties…

Bookshopping In Singapore!!!

by evilnymphstuff

Yes you read the title right! I recently went to Singapore  with my friend Sandra… for 8 consecutive days!

And there is only one word to describe our trip:

A.W.E.S.O.M.E.

Anyway, this time, I tried something new in terms of travelling activities and as you’ve obviously guessed from the title, one day we decided to go bookshopping! I don’t know if there is a specific legit word for it, but basically we googled about bookstores in Singapore and spent a whole day visiting them and buying books! And to our convenience, most of the interesting ones were found to be based in a single particular area: Tiong Bahru.

Sincerely, this place is definitely meant for book lovers and artists! It’s a small quiet area, so cosy!

Proof: we went there twice. Well that was because I became crazy…

Anyway, here’s the whole story… of our bookshopping adventure!!!

The first bookshop we went to was Books Actually, one of the most famous and beloved stores in Singapore.

The artwork of the store is just so beautiful! Bookworms be prepared to drool!

My First Time! | Candid Street Photography

by evilnymphstuff

Yesterday I decided to give candid street photography a go. I was going to be in the capital city anyway, so I thought, why not? My adventurous mind was getting all thrilled at the thought that I was indeed going to be alone, since the friend I’d asked to come with me wasn’t free, but reason warned me not to be too crazy so I opted for a safe area – a tourist one!

Here’s the main street of Le Caudan Waterfront, where I chose to do candid street photography for the first time, all by myself:

Yes I know. Colourful umbrellas ♥

So I put on my hat, wore Candy (my camera) around my neck and pretended to be a tourist! I even spoke English (we usually speak French), stared around as if I’ve never been there (although I’ve been a thousand times since I was born), smiled… and followed the crowd, feigning to take shots of the place when in fact I was shooting… the people themselves.

The Writer-Wolf

They picture it and I write; here’s this week’s Picture it & Write:

Suddenly she burst out of the room.

She had known it all along. Her boss was an evil monster. She had seen him, his face vehemently changing into a disgusting greyish weird shape, while his nose and eyebrows had seemed to melt and his teeth falling off…

Aiden looked up at the white paper sky. He often wondered what lay behind this sheet of clouds. People passed by him. He knew that they all thought that he was crazy. But he knew that he was not.

Gangnam Mauritian Style?!

by evilnymphstuff

The video Gangnam Style (which I obviously won’t have to link here because everyone know what I’m talking about) by PSY has become such a viral success around the globe in so little time, that, with the blink of an eye, I found myself in that K-pop addictive boat as well, heading towards an adventure I could never have imagined…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

by evilnymphstuff

All right, I know what you are going to tell me, it’s the second WPC post… Two WPCs in a row! Does that mean that An Evil Nymph has nothing more to post, nothing to say at all to her readers?

Not exactly.

The thing is, I’ve busied myself a lot lately… not only through revision but through other new activities, new hobbies I have to decide whether to adopt or not… I realised that this year, the month of October has made me very frantic… unstable… So I’ve been trying to win at least one chess match against my phone (in vain), singing all over the place, watching indie singers on Youtube sing (eventually), thinking about crazy outfits by staring at my wardrobe, taking care of an alien (that’s Pou, a phone app lol don’t worry, we are not being invaded… yet), eating Smarties… and reading.

Maybe I’m doing all of this now because I know that NaNoWriMo is coming…?

I don’t know. Anyway.

My 21 Favourite Movies (in particular themes)

by evilnymphstuff

For all movies that I will mention, go to imb.com for more info on any films.

I just watched The Rite yesterday night at home and it was… awesome! :) I’ve missed movies like that since I last saw The Season of a Witch with Nicholas Cage! I might be a girl but that’s one of my type of movies – war, history, myth, medieval times, magic, but not necessarily horror and especially whatever movies with priets and demons in it! ^^ though I’ve never been on the priests’ sides… ;) except when they’re as handsome as Nicholas Cage!

By the way the list is not in a particular order. It depends purely on my sole memory. :P
