Part 2: #EBC2017 Everest Base Camp – The day before

Tomorrow I will be heading to Everest Base Camp (EBC), and I can start feeling the adrenalin taking over me, and with it the doubts, and fears (read the first blog post here). I find the most challenging part of trekking to EBC is the mental part. On the one hand it is an exciting […]

Part 1: #EBC2017 Heading to Mount Everest Basecamp

There are so many exciting changes happening in 2017, which I will cover in a different post. This one, though not a change per se, is an exciting journey I plan to embark on next week. I will be heading to Kathmandu to start an exciting journey to Mount Everest Basecamp. It is an eye-opening […]

Business Trip to Berlin And Expending the MARCOM Team 

Visting Berlin had a different flavour to it this time. It involved not only closing Q1 and planning our next quarter, but also welcoming two new team members to the MARCOM team—Whitney and Anja— and introducing our new Finance and Operations Lead (CFO). The first part of the trip was quite intense. We’ve gone through […]

The Dark Side of Street Photography If You Are an Introvert 

Not too long ago—when I first started my photography journey in 2012—I needed to decide what areas of photography I’ll enjoy exploring the most. Is it landscaping? Is it portraits? Or maybe architecture? After experimenting with various photography fields, my search led me to street photography, and people (not necessary portraits, but more like taking photos […]

Running: Barefoot vs. Shoes on

I read a lot of articles and books about barefoot running, and how anatomically speaking it is the right thing to do if your goal is to develop a good running technique, as well as keeping your body healthy (i.e., not leaning forward, less stress on the spine, etc). I have been running minimalist for […]

Thoughts From My Last Trip

September was a busy month for me. It started with #INBOUND15 in Boston, followed with meeting my new team in Berlin, followed with a short trip to Zurich to attend the launch party of the new Impact Hub Zurich, and continued with visiting my family in Israel. Three weeks altogether of traveling across three continents. […]

The One Rule to Keep In Mind When Photographing Fireworks

Yesterday I attempted to photograph the New Year’s fireworks in Singapore. I did my homework, found a good spot on the bridge, and had my finger ready to trigger the shutter. The technical rules are quite straight forward: Get a DSLR Must have a (good) tripod Aperture at f 11-16 Mode = “B” (bulb) ISO […]

Buy nuts in Singapore in Bulk

I’ve been looking for a place to buy nuts and fruits (raisins and dates) in Singapore for some time, and finally I came across a place named Garden Picks that offered great prices, and a vast selection of nuts and fruits. This is all nice and well, but one thing about Singapore that I haven’t gotten […]

First Two Weeks Working at The @Hubsg (Reflecting)

Exhilarating. This is how I describe the feeling of working for The Hub Singapore. Frankly speaking, it’s beyond anything I had ever imagined. From the moment you step into the ‘office’ – which, by the way, is a big co-working space in a cafe –  to the moment you leave; from the place, the team, the Hubbers […]

Where Are All the New Photos?

Here is the simple answer to those of you who keep asking me about new photos from Singapore, and if I quit photography: I didn’t quit photography. In fact, I have a nice collection of photos I took in Singapore that I simply can’t wait to migrate to Lightroom. The reason I haven’t done it […]

Swimming with the Big Sharks

In his book Outliers: The Story of Success, Malcolm Gladwell talks about the 10,000 hours rule, where he claims that the key to success in any field is, to a large extent, a matter of practicing a specific task for a total of around 10,000 hours. I don’t have 10,000 hours of practice in photography yet, […]

Restaurant Review: Koh Grill & Sushi Bar (Singapore)

Last night, we decided to revive our Friday Night Sushi tradition. I had recently come across a name of a Sushi restaurant in Singapore called Koh Grill & Sushi Bar, so we decided to go and explore their menu. They had two main dishes that I wanted to try: Shioki Maki and Shioki Maki ‘second […]
