The experiences of a Singaporean living in Budapest since 2007 are mostly recorded here on Budapest Daily Photo blog. I featured here the unique sights not to be missed and if you are a traveler with just three days to a weeks’ time in Budapest, you can find these posts by me useful.
I enjoy photography and painting very much. My interests includes cooking, travel and writing. I get messages every once in a while, from very friendly people who are visiting Budapest. Here, I’ve written down and shared my recommendations about some of the ”9 MUST-SEE in Budapest!
Before I live in Budapest with my husband, Zsolt, I was blogging for Singapore Daily Photo. Being a food lover, I have recently started a recipes and food blog called the ‘Delish Recipes‘. It is where I made a collection of delectable asian and international cuisines, mostly the possible kinds of food which I missed from Singapore and my way of connecting with people who enjoy food and culture as much as I do.
Within the collection are also recipes of Hungarian food which I learned to make from my in-laws, my husband’s grandmother and my Hungarian friends.

  1. Hello,
    I enjoyed your photos of Budapest. I too like photography and this summer I will be going to Budapest for the first time and your photos make me feel that I’ll know my way around a little.
    I’m a senior citizen (73yrs) and live in New York City.
    All the best,

  2. Hi Zannie,
    thank you so much for your nice comment to my blog. I love your pictures from Budapest very much and miss no one!!! It’s a fantastic city, I was many times there – because I’m still Hungarian in my heart, I have still family over there and because love my country!
    I have not counted all the sunsets I photographed in this 6 years living in Key West, but I can tell you, there will come more out of my archives or also actuell ones of course. :-))

  3. Hi Zannie

    I’ve just uploaded my photo and wondering whether anything else I need to set up to share this photo with other viewers and visitors. I gave a title and a description and submitted.

    I am going to Hungary this summer, and a photograph is at the heart of my guerilla film making project. Please send me an e-mail.

  14. Szia,

    I love this blog and I love this town!

    I am a 26 year old Swede. I lived in Budapest one year, and I miss the city so much… When I miss it the most, I can just check out the latest daily photos and it calms me down.. a bit..


  15. Great Blog, I have been here twice at 1991 and at 2009 the people are so polite, I loved sitting and hearing the people(local) chatting so quite, maybe within the next five years we could translate verbal conversations so I will come again.
    Thank you

  16. I will be moving to Budapest this year and while I am still not there, I will live vicariously through your blog, Zannie! :) I can’t wait but we shall see how easy/difficult it is to adjust to living there with no Hungarian! haha take care for now!

  17. Thank you for providing me and others with a very exciting piece of the web.

    I’ve added a link back to your site from my blogroll/linkroll at my little budget blog at

    I’ve also written a short bit about the site at my link guide:

    Budapest Daily Photo – a daily photo blog of the city by one of its inhabitants. The
    standard of the photos can vary, but together they build up a fascinating
    portrait of the city.


    If it’s possible, I would be honoured if you could link back to my blog.

  18. Hey Zannie,
    I think your photographs are amazing. I’m a student at the Ontario College of Art & Design (Canada’s most renowned art & design university). I would really like to talk to you about the possibility of using a few of your photographs in a tourist booklet I’m designing for my editorial class. Please contact me at so we can discuss this opportunity further.

    Much appreciated.

  19. Hey Zannie,
    I think your photographs are great. I would really like to talk to you about the possibility of using a few of your photographs in a website that is following press freedom in Hungary. If you are interested please contact me at
    Thank you.

  20. Hi,

    This site looks a lot like the Boston Globe with the pictures and all.

    Nice to see that the glimmer of Budapest is still alive with your photos.

  21. I saw the picture of you and your husband while browsing through the photos of Budapest and I immediately thought “she must be Singaporean”. And voila!

  22. Dear Zannie,
    on behalf of the travel agency CORVINUS TRAVEL, s.r.o. I would like to ask you if you would be willing to offer us your beautiful photos to present Budapest on our webpage. We would be really glad to have especially your photos.
    All the credits will go to you, we will attach (c) your name to the photos.
    best regards,

    Alexandra Zieglerova

    P.S.: we are having a group of Singaporeans in the middle of September :)
