Who: Mr Eitaro Ogawa, 40, is the chief printer at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute. He hails from Osaka, Japan, and is also the project leader of the institute's workshop team which consist of paper makers and printers.

Favourite city: Lisbon, Portugal

Why: I've visited this nostalgic and romantic city only once, in 2000, but it left a deep impression on me and I would leap at the opportunity to go there again.

That was also my first trip overseas and I was visiting my wife (then fiancee) who was living there at the time.
