South Africa, May 2013. Using just a morning to explore. The peak of Cape Point offered an unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean and Indian Ocean. On Cape Point, one could even see the curvature of our planet. Equally majestic was the Chapman’s Peak whose road are now safe and protected from rockfalls.

The Cape Peninsula is a generally rocky peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean at the south-western extremity of the African continent. At the southern end of the peninsula are Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. On the northern end is Table Mountain, overlooking Cape Town, South Africa. The peninsula is 52 km long.

I am 26 and still finding grounds in my life. I am born and raised into a conservative Chinese family. As I grew, I was inducted into a city-state where a competitive modern society has made achievements and money become a call of life. I have a job in one of the most awarded airport in the world. I think and I see endless possibilities. To learn about things that are greater than myself, my kin and kith, my job, and my country, travelling afforded me the chance to discover everything and anything. I appreciate the amazing people I have met and those individuals I have had the honor to lunch with. I recount the smiles of locals with whom I greeted and thanked in their native languages. I opened my ears and let them talk so they could teach me. My experiences gave me an ability to see beyond the vanishing point. I show people how right and wrong they were about a particular country. In a modern society where scepticism is ingrained in us and after realizing our inability to appreciate, I am humbled by the trust that strangers have so genuinely afforded me. I believe there is power in knowledge and reaching out to people, and I urge that you do the same. My camera is to me what cigarettes are to smokers. Along with aircrafts, I consider it one of the greatest invention in modern times. Photographs are frozen memories and when you look into them hard enough, they each tell a story. They are filled with feelings and full of life. This website captures stories I found and I treasure. After all, the business of life is the acquisition of memories.
