the warmth

27 Jan

Looking back at old photos.

Just feeling a little nostalgic for warmth.

It’s snowing again here in NY

and it’s about 10F outside.

I have never been in a place so cold

besides the freezer we had at the store I worked at.

A human body could stand under a harsh condition,

and I am fascinated by my own adaptability.

Oh boy, but I would really love to

take off my coat and boots and run around

without worrying about slipping or sliding on the snow.

Just a day or two would be fine.

I know, this is just me

wanting something that is on the opposite end.

I do that sometimes.


Ciao, 2010

31 Dec

So this is it.

This is the last day in 2010.

My 2010 was full of changes.

From Thailand to Tokyo, and then to NY.

I got to reconnect with many people

and also met many cool people

that I would love to hang out with more often.

I am starting to figure out what kind of a life style

I am wanting

so hopefully, I will make it come true in 2011.

Last year in Chiang Mai,

while seeing all the lanterns in the sky,

I wished that everybody’s 2010 was full of happiness.

I don’t know why but that was the only

‘wish’ I could think of.

It’s not like I am a super humanitarian person though.

But anyways, I hope you are satisfied about 2010

and you are feeling positive about the year to come.

I am.

I feel content and also feel ambitious.

Probably I will be too tired to update my blog tonight

so this will be my last post of this year.

Ciao, 2010.

See you soon 2011.



24 Nov


Whoa, I didn’t realize how long it has been

since my last post.

5 more nights and I leave for NY.

It’s kind of weird to think about it.

It’s unreal.

Especially since I am going to a place

that I have been wanting to go for a long time.

(I actually applied for a college in NY

but I decided to go to WA because of many reasons.)

I’ve been enjoying this month.

I got to see my friend Moses who is from Nigeria

whom I met in Thailand

and also got to go to a party

that was held by Nigerian people who live in Tokyo.

Oh look what he brought me from Thailand.

Thank you so much, Moses.

You are such a funny (…and wonderful) person!!!

Also, he brought me a beautiful batik

which is from Tew in Chiang Mai.

I will take it with me to NY and display it it my room.

Thank you so much, Tew.

You have always been so thoughtful.

Speaking of “thoughtfulness”,

my older sister has given me an angel.

I forgot what stone this was made of.

(I will edit it later!)

Apparently this stone may be able to

help me figure out

‘why’ I have always been wanting to be in NY.

Thank you so much for always

being such a great sister.

You are one of the most giving people

I’ve ever come across.

….and a lovely news continues….

She is going to come visit me in NY

in the end of December.


Tonight I am going out drinking

with some of my friends.


an older friend of mine whom I made through

the gym I go, is going to

take me out from a fugu-dinner.

On Friday,

I am going to go to a part with my mom

to go see the trees

and in the evening,

I am going to have a hot-pot night

at my best buddy’s place.

On Saturday,

mom, my sisters and I

are all going to take a bullet train to Nara and go see

our grandpa who is in a hospital.

On Sunday, my friends from highschool

are going to have a chill-out day

eating pizza and possibly drinking wine 😉

…and on Monday,

I leave.

camera used:  Olympus XA

Through my lense

1 Jul

Hello again, to those who already know me.

Good to see you here.

Nice to meet you, to those who stumble upon my blog for the very first time.

I would like to use my semi-first entry as an album.

An album of photos I like.

All the photos here are taken with Olympus XA.

It’s a tiny little camera and people often ask me

if it’s a toy camera or not.

It’s my toy, yes.  But it’s not a toy camera.

<My littlebut serious MOTTO>

Whether it came out well or not, I hardly ever edit my photos.

That has become kind of like my motto over the past years.

For me, not knowing whether it looks nice or not is part of the excitement of using films.

So, well,  if I do edit, I will let you know.

This is MY rule and I am not criticizing anybody, by the way.

I am just saying that it is not for me.

I want to treat my photos like polaroid.

The view I love

a view of U-district


Little buddies

Leaving Thailand

My black&white film will be ready

on the 5th. I am looking forward to seeing it.
