Shots N Snippets

Smoke from incense embers choked the air in this Hoi An temple. Rays of sun light shined through the few transparent tiles of the roof and penetrated the smoke-filled atmosphere. Local devotees came here for their regular ancestral worship and prayed for blessings.

The assembly hall temples in Hoi An were constructed in the 18th and 19th century to serve the needs of their respective communities. Ethnic clans from Fujian, Guangdong, Hainan and Chaozhou made Hoi An their home and established their business here. Till today, the assembly halls are still utilized by the Chinese communities in Hoi An.

In this image, the red coils of incense hung from the roof while the golden head of spears jutted up from the bottom.

Hello... I Am Josh

A Travel Writer & Photographer from South East Asia

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
 
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
 
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
