Hi.

Talking about me? :)

Anyway the actual meaning from www.dictionary.com is :

1) The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
2) The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
3) An instance of making such a discovery.

You are right about "taiko" in Singlish. A "taiko" with luck and good result. :)

Me getting into photography is "taiko" occurence. :)

And taking good photos alot of time depend on "taiko". I don't think there are alot of photgraphers can guarantee that every shots are great. :) Especially from film.

So i call myself "serendipity". :)

haha it means fortunate accident.. which is ahem how I take my shots too :D

I was shooting some top view of two saplings in a field... some symmetrical abstract shot... then two pigeons flew across, casting a nice pair balance and their paired shadows... hope it's serendipitous! :)
