Local Lens: Reflections of Singapore’s Changing Cityscape

To see more of Singapore’s diverse architecture through the lens of a local, follow @_yafiqyusman_ on Instagram.

“The places I can go are limited,” says Instagrammer Yafiq Yusman (@_yafiqyusman_) of his tiny island-nation home of Singapore, “but the photo possibilities are limitless.”

Yafiq, who studied architecture in college, enjoys capturing Singapore’s rapidly evolving urban landscape through puddles left by the city’s tropical climate. “Singapore is a modernized country, but there are still places where you can see the olden days,” says Yafiq. “The alleys in Little India, China Town and Boat Quay are a few of my favorite spots and great for puddle shots.”

For more modern photo opportunities, Yafiq favors Raffles Place, a square surrounded by the city’s tallest buildings. And for those seeking respite from Singapore’s fast-paced metropolis, he suggests tracking down a hidden reserve called Punggol Beach. “The best time to visit is during the sunset. It’s beautiful.”

"Even more so I’m afraid to face God and say I was a coward"

"Someone once told me that human beings have three dimensions: how you see yourself, how others see you, and how you want others to see you. The closer the distance between the three dimensions, the more at peace you are and the more stable you become."

My dreams

keep offering me images of girls both present and past, and I think I’m supposed to learn a message of love. Either that or just repressed sexual feelings coming up. Well I guess only further contemplation will solve the puzzle. 

"Life is too short for shitty sex and bad relationships.
So go find someone who fucks you right and treats you how you deserve to be treated."

"We are dying from overthinking. We are slowly killing ourselves by thinking about everything. Think. Think. Think. You can never trust the human mind anyway. It’s a death trap."

"I thought it was about finding the right words. It isn’t. It’s about a person making you feel like a person. It’s about yourself connecting to what it feels like being yourself. And it’s also about laughing a bit and getting bored a bit and walking around the city a bit. And it’s about spending day time or night time in the way that you wish to. It’s not about always “doing stuff”, It’s about letting things flow in their own manner. I wish I could tell you how right this sounds in my mind. How right and yet so vague and intimidating. The thing is, I always had a passion for what matters. What matters is the hardest part and what’s even harder to perceive is the fact that “what matters” to me differs so much from what matters to people I already know or people I’ll never get to know. Perhaps it’s about finding what matters without exhausting yourself in vain search of it. Perhaps it’s about the journey and clichés count as well. Perhaps it’s also about the unnecessary details and living a bit and taking notice of the world a lot and allowing yourself to be swept away by your own sensations. Perhaps. Perhaps…it’s about one or two things more or it might just be about less. Self-sufficiency leaves no room for “perhaps” and that’s distressing. Also, it’s beautiful and it requires that you leave your own soul alone. To leave your soul alone without leaving it behind. Yes, it’s perhaps about the soul. And it should be enough. And if it isn’t, darling, I don’t know where you go from there. But if it is, then I swear it’s the sweetest tragedy and you’ve got to do this; you’ve got to go all the way with it."
