Downtown Dallas & The Dallas Museum of Art

During my 2 week stay in the states, I flew out to Dallas, TX directly from NYC to visit my relatives there. The last time I visited Texas was during Christmas when I was still a little girl, so you could say I had no knowledge of the Dallas area. My aunt, uncle and cousin … Continue Reading

NYC Travel Diary Part I

NYC – the city of dreams, never-ending energy, and so much life. I can’t believe it’s already been 2 weeks since I visited this amazing place, and going through the photos really had me missing all of it.

Busan, Korea

I just came back home after a 5-day hiatus from blogging. The first three were due to a shoot which contents I cannot disclose just yet. But all I can say is, my trip to Busan was very much needed after those long 3 days! I spent the night at the Park Hyatt in Busan … Continue Reading

Lunch at Kitte, Tokyo Station

This past weekend, I met with my mom, her cousin and daughter for lunch at Kitte Marunouchi, which is right next to Tokyo station. It’s a post office turned department store, with lots of shopping and dining that you can only do in Japan. We lunched at a shabu shabu / tonkatsu restaurant called Hirata … Continue Reading

the city that never sleeps

These were one of the first set of photos I took with my new Canon G7X, before I left for my vacation to California a month ago. A month ago… time really does go by quickly. Before you know it, it’s going to be summer again. Can’t wait to explore the city again with new … Continue Reading

A Huntington Beach sunset

With my friend Amy visiting my hometown of Huntington Beach for a couple days, it makes me see the city in a slightly different light. As we were driving along PCH during the sunset yesterday, she remarked, “You are so lucky to have lived in such a beautiful area.” Having lived away from California for … Continue Reading
