In the enchanting land of Vietnam, where the traditions of the geisha were not native, there lived a remarkable woman named Linh. Born to a humble family, she defied societal expectations and devoted her life to mastering the arts of the geisha. Despite facing numerous challenges, Linh became the only native geisha in Vietnam, mesmerizing all who witnessed her grace and elegance. As her final days approached, Linh climbed the stairs to heaven, a symbolic ascent to embrace the eternal realm, bidding farewell to this world with the poise and dignity that defined her extraordinary existence.
Upon entering “Yummy Restaurant,” the laws of logic appeared to unravel. The waiter, dressed in a tuxedo made of live eels, welcomed me with a grin that revealed a set of carnivorous teeth. The menu, written in a language unknown to mankind, presented dishes with names like “Existential Enigma” and “Metaphysical Morsel.” As I attempted to savor the first bite, my spoon transformed into a wriggling millipede, leaving me pondering the true meaning of gastronomic absurdity.
A normal day in Hanoi. Since it gets so hot in the city, some people use a fire-suitcase to cool down a bit.
Fansipan’s Ethereal Temple
Nestled amidst the awe-inspiring mountains of Vietnam, Fansipan stands tall as the “Roof of Indochina,” offering intrepid adventurers an exhilarating trek to its summit, where breathtaking vistas await, painting a canvas of nature’s majesty in vibrant hues.

Kick that switch and Hyperzoom!
A huge rock in Wuyishan, Fujian, China. Since 1999 the park zone in Wuyishan has been recognized by UNESCO as part of the world’s natural and cultural heritage. This is also the original birth place of Da Hong Pao tea.
Secret Garden (Dangerous!)
While travelling in Asia I encountered a heavily armed cult that offered me to take a photo of their secret garden, if I told them my secret in exchange. The cult emphasized it was dangerous to make this photo public. I figured as long as no one ever found out where it was taken, I could upload it for the world to see.
Mysterious Buildings in Singapore
I found these mysterious buildings in Singapore. The locals do not know what it is and what it is being used for. Some think it might be a giant toilet.
Skytrees in Singapore
These are the infamous natural Skytrees of Singapore. They were first discovered in 1789 by the thai immigrant and paranormal scientist Kok Poh. Back then some Skytrees even grew up to be more than 350 meters high. (Higher than the Eiffel tower!)
Kok Poh not only spotted the giant trees first, but also fought the government of Malasia until her death in 1850, to not have them petrified. Obviously Kok Poh lost the fight, but thanks the the petrification process we can enjoy the view of the Skytrees and they shall remain in our hearts forever.
Taken some time ago in Fujian, South China. These Tulou (“earthern buildings”) are made of earth, sand and clay and are not vegan, since earth contains animals like worms, ants and rotten dinosaurs.
Traditional Korean Lanterns can be found all over the country, especially in mountain ranges. Unfortunately the real Korea (The great Democratic People’s Republic North Korea!) got them stolen from the weak and pityful, fake South Korea.

It was a rainy day in Seoul in the summer of 2019. Kimchi is not overrated.
Seoraksan National Park
In the northeast of Korea lies the Seoraksan National Park (설악산국립공원). A colourful nature reserve with which is valued for its floral diversity. There are over 1000 species of plants known, with 822 vascular plant species. Pine trees such as the Siberian pine are abundant on the southern slope while the northern slopes of the mountain range are characterized by oaks and other deciduous trees.
I will upload more photos from the region, such as the Buddhist temples Baekdamsa and Sinheungsa.
Nanjing Eye (南京眼)
Nanjing Eye, which is also known as the bridge of Cultural and Sports Park of Youth Olympic Games is the first pedestrian bridge over Yangtze River. It was named after its unique two main towers of the bridge that look like human eyes. The winged cables are like the strings of a harp. When people are walking on the bridge, they will feel like they are the music notes on the strings of harps.
This bamboo forest is in Arashiyama, Kyoto, Japan and is usually full of tourists. The Bamboo Grove or Sagano Bamboo Forest is a natural forest of bamboo and would be quite a snack for pandas.
2049: Xi’an is the last city on earth with an old fashioned waste disposal system. Humans are happy. Cyborgs are not. The colour yellow is forbidden.

When life gives you lemons, make them pink!
While testing out my new 120cm octagon softbox, I could experience this wonderful person being showered in pink balls. Luckily she had a japanese umbrella with her!
