This cafe is not only pretty in the interior design, but the drink is also amazing. I tried authentic earl-grey tea, and the taste was amazingly delicious, so natural and authentic. Look on how they plate the tea set.

Autumn is always my favourite season of the year. It is super pretty everywhere, especially when all the autumn leaves changing color. Even from early autumn which is late September, some flowers already bloom. One of the most beautiful one is kokia flower. In Yangju Nari Park, 2 hours away from Seoul, there is a really big flower kokia flower garden where you can experience them directly. This time, Tiffany Jolie, an indonesian model joined me for photo session. Get ready to be amazed.

You can only see kokia flower in full bloom shape between September 20 until October 10 every year. If you a little bit late, you will find them withered already.

Nia Ramadhani & Theresa Wienathan

Nami Island is the one of most favourite place to visit on early autumn. It is because Nami Island is the prettiest during that time. The lined-up ginko trees in Nami Island will turn into magical yellow tree between October 20-30. Last year, I captured the moment of Nia Ramdhani and Theresa Wienathan, Indonesian famous public figure while travelling in yellow Nami.

Jiwoo & Peiqi

Singapore also has its own beautiful story. Even though Singapore is just a city state, which is really small compare to most of countries, the human-made tourist attractions in Singapore are incredible well made and beautiful. My favourite one is Garden by The Bay. The magical flower garden with the famous umbrella-like flower tower is the perfect place for taking photos, especially for sweet couple such as Jiwoo and Peiqi. They are so young, sweet and romantic but funny which bring a really fun atmosphere during the session. I remember whenever I finish taking the couple shot, Jiwoo always said “Rufus, please take picture of myself as well for my profile picture” which make us laugh.
