I spend at least 15 mins every morning and almost every evening listening to the ocean waves crashing and I tell her "You are really worth fighting for!" ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ™ #withknowingcomescaring #sylviaearle

When you decide to choose someone as your mentor and only follow up three years later! I am a horrible mentee! ๐Ÿ˜ž #myfavouritephotographer #robinmoyer #photojournalist #timemagazinephotographer #fcchk
I have been speaking to a lot of marine biologists, coral nerds, divers and other ocean activists lately and the one question I always get asked when talking about how I have been contributing in my own little way towards marine conservation is "why would you go hunting and spearing the beautiful lionfish?!" These are Indo-Pacific Invasive Alien Species (IAS)  introduced in the Caribbean that eat all the fish that is good for the reef. They have been proven to potentially have a negative impact on marine fisheries & reefs ecosystem in countries like Trinidad & Tobago, Barbados etc
I was lucky enough to have been introduced to this rather barbaric sport in 2016 and for those of you who know me well,I would do anything to save our seas and reefs and as an advocate of sustainability "why not"!! Not to mention, lionfish meat is also yummy! So stop hunting Parrotfish & Sharks for their fins and hunt lionfish in the Caribbean! 
Really looking forward to participating at the Florida Lionfish Derby in 2018!

P.S. I wouldn't want to spear them in the Pacific! I will take photos of them instead (hmm...maybe not) #throwbackthursday #lionfishhunting #savethereef #bearesponsiblediver

Back roll. Descend. Look up. Be thankful for the invention of tanks and boats that make it possible for us to meditate underwater for an hour (well for some) ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ™

โ€œUnused creativity is not benign. It metastasizes. It turns into grief, rage, judgement, sorrow, shame" - Brenรฉ Brown

One of the panellists at @fdfin.hk reminded me/us of this quote yesterday while I was photographing their panel discussion and I am sure a lot of my inspiring and talented friends here in Hong Kong can resonate with this quote! Sometimes we all just need a little reminder, hey!

Every time, life in HK gets overwhelming, I wake up with vivid memories of my time in the Caribbean. It was most definitely my happy place and it brought the best out of me like this time in Honduras and my endless encounters with Dolphins. The people here made my stay and diving experience so memorable. I Still think of Joel, the boat captain who cracked me up every single moment during surface interval and Dive-master, John for showing me every single Nudibranch and Seahorse he could find. The Caribbean is calling me, I must go back. #exactlytwoyearsagotoday #funemployment #carribeanjourney

Profound. Poignant. Prolific. 
As sons of immigrants, you'd only expect #MassiveAttack to use subtle political activism once again to engage with their audience. #Clockenflap2017 #WeareAllinthisTogether
