“Dear Yina, what camera do you use?” – Bangkok with the Olympus Pen-F


One of the most frequently asked questions I get over and over again is, “Dear Yina, what camera do you use?”.

I’m proud to say that I’ve been using Olympus cameras for the past SIX years! My Olympus cameras have taken 80% of all the photos on this blog, and have accompanied me on so many travels and important occasions of my life. I love photography and taking photos is a big part of what I do, both at work at TheVelvetDolls, and for my blog 🙂

When Olympus approached me to be their PEN Ambassador last year, I was overjoyed! Being an ambassador of a brand that I love, is an absolute joy and privilege.

Since I started using Olympus six years ago, I’ve used the Olympus E-P1, E-P3, E-PL5, OMD EM5ii and I’ve loved every single one. Each new Olympus camera just gets better and better! Now, the latest Olympus camera, Olympus Pen-F has just landed in Singapore (and in my hands) and I am looking forward to creating even more beautiful memories with this camera.

The design of the Olympus Pen-F is a throwback to the first Olympus Pen (a film camera) and looks gorgeously vintage and classic.

Features-wise, the Pen-F is like a major upgrade from the Pen series: It has all the functions I already love (such as wi-fi, a flip screen, touch focus) and even more! There is now a 20mp sensor for higher quality photos, and a cool Creative Dial that allows you to explore different shooting styles with art filters, monochrome profile, tweak individual color settings and more!!

I’m having a lot of fun playing with the Olympus Pen-F, and brought it to Bangkok with me during my Lunar New Year family trip. Below are some of the first few photos captured with the Olympus Pen-F, documenting my time in Bangkok!

Enjoy the photos 😉

Their popular Ferrero Toast! Intensely chocolatey and sinful.


My favourite at After You: Shibuya Honey Toast with additional strawberries on the side!


I couldn’t get enough of the delicious road-side salt-grilled fish! These were from Rod Fai market, but you can find them all around Bangkok. They are so insanely fresh and tasty!


A very hipster barber at Rod Fai market, loving the whole vibe of the place.


I brought my family to North-East Restaurant at Lumpini, where I previously dined at when I stayed at Sofitel So Bangkok right next door. It’s my favourite eatery in Bangkok! Affordable and authentic Thai food 🙂


Bought a new phone case from a small shop at Siam Square too!


The next best thing to fresh coconut: Coconut ice cream! Got this outside Central World.
