    Drawn Into

    The ocean is mesmerizing -- the beach, the horizon, the winter versus summer sand lines, the sound and rhythm as it pulses the coastline. But most of all is the smell and feel of the ocean in the air. It draws me and I need to be enrobed and encapsulated by the sea, no matter the...

    All and Out

    It's no doubt that the sea, the beach and the ocean in overall makes us feel all the sexy stuffs; bikinis and lots and lots of skin. But then, for me, it's like spreading your arms out wide and fall into the deep, just to find yourself drowned in the sky instead. I feel free and...
