“I love taking pictures of signs because they tell so much about a country. For instance, Canada’s bilingual “stop-arrêt” sign is unique, and so are the many weather-related warnings, “ice falling” being my favourite. During our trip to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand, I collected various signs. Here are the best ones!”

“I went over to the other side of the pond… and did I have a bloody good time! (Warning: billions of photos coming.)”

“…in Argentina, graffiti is everywhere and has been embraced by the community. It has been taken to a level above petty vandalism.”

- Charles Chua C K presents Getting Effective Website Ideas from Kuantan Municipal Council posted at All About Living with Life, saying,
“Kuantan is the town where I live. It is on the east cost of Peninsular Malaysia with many breathtaking beaches and lush greenery.”
