Spring time

Spring time

The time has flown by as I always feel when there are so many things going on in life. Next thing I know, we are already approaching the end of the first half of the year.  Spring time is when the flowers start blooming. Their colors are just as colorful as my life as it has been.

ImageThis year has set me so many missions I have yet to complete.  Thankfully for the many supports I’ve had to keep me sane, I am staying as optimistic as I take it one step at a time. Continue reading


After the Rain

After the rain

It’s been raining the whole week in San Francisco. The humidity was high, the sky was gloomy and the streets were slippery and wet.  It was just this weekend that the rain started to subside, and the clear and blue sky came into vision.

After the rain

The day the rain stopped also happened to be my birthday. I take that it’s a good sign.  This is the note I wrote on the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1. I really enjoyed playing with the S Note and S Pen, although I don’t like the appearance of many apps on android tablet. Continue reading

Los Angeles Fall 2012

LA 2012

Los Angeles will always have a special place in my heart. Every time I flew back, it felt like coming back home. It’s always exciting as I longed for the memories I had had in the past several years. It’s a place where I had grown so much, emotionally. Seeing friends and familiar faces was the best thing that happened to my trip this time around. Continue reading

Downtown San Francisco Fall 2012

Downtown SF Fall 2012

Fall and winter are my favorite time of the year. I love Fall fashion and the cool and breezy weather.  I found the overcast sky oddly romantic, and I love driving on the westbound bay bridge on such a day.

Today I had to drop my car off for yet another service recall part replacement, allowing me some free time to browse around SF downtown area where I rarely visit in the morning of a week day like this. I must say I’m loving the city feel–really reminded me of New York City. People watch is undeniably entertaining. I saw some asking for direction, many texting while walking, and others just kept on their fast pace. People in the coffee shop dress more professional and they are different from the crowd by the university.  I wish I had a day off like this often. Oh, and the guy sitting in front of me is cute. He looks like Kang Ma Ru from Mr Nice Guy. 🙂

End of summer 2012

When it comes to one of those major road blocks in life, a little getaway from the daily chaos is all we need.

June Lake 2012

I’ve never really been watching the sun rise at such a beautiful place…it changed my perception of many, many things that have been bothering me.

Mono Lake 2012

The breathtaking view made me feel out of the world.

Walk on…I believe in myself.

In the still of the night

The City

Forth of July was one of the rare moments when I went out late in the evening. This year I’ve got a couple of friends helping me setting my SLR, getting ready for some firework shots.

The Bay Bridge at night

I fell in love with the night time photos. The city itself is just gorgeous at night time.

It’s almost mid July now and it’s quite scary thinking how fast time flies. This month must be one of the most critical months I’ve had in years with so many things being in transition. I’m not sure if I feel happy or sad. Hopefully everything will turn out right in its time.

Around the lake

Lake Merced Summer 2012

Walking around the lake has become my new favorite routine during the weekend.  Unlike the ocean or the beach, the still lake is calm, quiet and less crowded. The scene of the lake makes me feel like I am somewhere far away from the city.  People come out for dog walking, running and biking.  For me it is a nice escape to put my thoughts together as I walk and appreciate the beauty of the lake.

The birds

I have been having quite a bit of free time recently, which is nice, as it allows me to adjust my routine to the healthier, less stressful lifestyle.  I incorporated a variety of vegetable and fruits into my daily diets, and I have started doing bikram yoga all over again.  It’s nice to have sometime relaxing, but I’m also looking forward to getting back to work.

The birds taking off

Maybe I have been having the busy schedule for the past several years, I started to feel bored when I have too much free time. I worked on my proposal at the coffee shop or at home, and it is just not as stimulating as when I was at work.  Oh well, I guess I should take the advantage of having the time right now while I can, and stay hopeful and positive, and productive too.
