1. Gili Lankanfushi Photo Recap/Review Day 6

    Posts: Day 1 | Day 2 | Day 3 | Day 4 | Day 5

    The penultimate day. Today would be our last full day and night spent at this incredible island resort, Gili Lankanfushi, and EE and I were both feeling rather sad that it was all coming to an end. We simply didn’t want to say leave and say goodbye so today was all about getting one last in of everything that we had enjoyed the previous 5 days - one last mammoth breakfast session, one last relaxing spa session, one last snorkelling session, one last bike ride through the island session, one last pig out at dinner session, one last lets-take-even-more-photos-even-though-we probably-alread-have-taken-the-exact-same-shot-previously session, and so on….

    Here comes the pics.

    Woke up to find this little cute crab spawned out on our bathroom floor.

    The walk with EE down to breakfast on the island everyday were some of my best memories. Just sharing the time and the beautiful 360 degree panoramic views of the Indian Ocean with each other was magical.

    Both of us looking rather apprehensive at the thought of leaving tomorrow and saying goodbye.

    I went completely overboard at breakfast and ordered 2 different egg dishes. The huge fluffy melon bread looking one is actually another Maldivian style of cooking egg and it was so good. So good in fact that I regretted waiting till this day to try it.

    The spa session that we had on our 2nd day at Meera Spa was so good that we had always planned to go back for another session on our last day.

    image

    The first time we both has the 60 minutes Deep Tissue Massage, but this time we wanted to try another form of massage and both went for the Champissage, which is otherwise known as an Indian head massage focusing on the shoulders, neck, upper back, arms and scalp. The treatment was wonderfully soothing and afterwards, we definitely felt very restored and revitalised.

    Feeling refreshed, we decided for one last snorkelling session, how could we not, and decided to snorkel to 3 Palm Island.

    That is 3 Palm Island in the background.

    After snorkelling, EE went for her obligatory cat nap whilst I decided to get in a last session of chilling out on our sun loungers out on our villa’s over water sun deck. I was watching an episode of The Clone Wars here.

    Went for a final bike ride before dinner.

    Dinner tonight was at the Overwater Bar and they put on an “Indian Street Market” buffet and everything, well all the things that I tried, were so tasty.

    My first time to try a seafood katti roll, and the one I had at Gili Lankanfushi was so, so, so delicious that I couldn’t help myself but to eat 3.

    After stuffing ourselves silly, we returned back to our villa to find this impressive and touching surprise left by Hassan our young but extremely reliable housekeeper. The guy is a legend in the making.

    We went to bed knowing that tomorrow would be time to say goodbye and  fly back home to reality.

    Peace, JW

    Hidden away behind London Bridge is this speakeasy.  It’s tough to find but definitely worth the effort.  The place looks great, the staff are friendly and the cocktails are pretty damn good too.

  12. Hyperlapse from Instagram

    I just downloaded this app yesterday afternoon and have been playing around with it most of last night and I absolutely love it because it does what it says on the tin and just works.

    Basically, Hyperlapse from Instagram lets you create smooth, gorgeous   stabilised moving Timelapse videos, even while in motion. Key word here is stabilised. It really is super smooth and allows you the ability to, 1) Perfectly replicate hyper lapse videos as done by those created using expensive DSLRs and thousands of still frames, and, 2) create cinematic motion tracking shots.

    Check out these videos for examples.

    Introducing Hyperlapse from Instagram from Instagram on Vimeo.

    Stabilization for Hyperlapse from Instagram from Instagram on Vimeo.

    Here is the official lowdown from Instagram, “Create amazing time lapse videos with Hyperlapse. Using Instagram’s in-house stabilization, Hyperlapse shoots polished time lapse videos that were previously impossible without bulky tripods and expensive equipment. When you shoot a time lapse video with Hyperlapse, your footage will be instantly stabilized to smooth out the bumps from the road and give it a cinematic feeling. Capture an entire sunrise in 10 seconds—even from the back of a moving motorcycle. Walk through the crowds at an all-day music festival, then distill it into a 30 second spot. Capture your bumpy trail run and share your 5k in 5 seconds.

    Features:

    * Shoot handheld time lapse videos in motion— while you’re walking, running, jumping or falling.

    * Smooth out your video for cinematic quality with automatic stabilization. 

    * Speed up your hyperlapse to be up to 12 times the speed.

    * Share your videos seamlessly on Instagram and Facebook or save them to your camera roll to share anywhere, anytime.

    * Start filming immediately with a simple design that gets out of the way of your creativity

    * Download and start capturing. No sign up or account required.”
