day 2218 – hong kong chaos

a little throwback to last fall’s trip with my parents to hong kong and singapore. some days i can’t help but think about my relatives back home and pray that they’re okay in the midst of the chaos. good thing none of my relatives and friends are activists in all these rioting events. my parents would like to go back to visit family, but definitely have no interest in these conditions

day 765 – painter’s touch

image

going back to august long weekend when i was helping my parents paint their room two-toned orange. seems like just yesterday it was the beginning of august and now we are onto september. so glad another long weekend is ahead and i can take this time to gather myself with all the struggles as of late. hopefully this will be a good time off to find some much needed answers before i try to kill myself

day 716 – take me back

image

take me back home to where i belong. where the night meets the day seamlessly and not much could get in the way of me and my dreams. when i thought i had friends that would last forever and get me through tough times. what i dreamt i would accomplish and make a difference in this world. who i thought i would become to be strong enough to withstand. how i thought i would live my life, standing affront the beach and gazing out at sunset

day 674 – elementary school days

image

the little me learning how to make pizza back in those elementary school days. living proof that i was a better chef when i was younger cause i am too lazy to even make food for myself nowadays. that innocent face staring back at the camera sums up my entire elementary experience. i don’t remember ever having so much fun baking and cooking but that apron certainly brings back memories

day 659 – u-dub

image

missing those times when the original six took a roadtrip down to seattle and obsessing ourselves with the big w at washington university. it’s these kind of things that really bring us together and bond as a team. this crew makes going to taekwondo better. we always laugh and joke around, but know that we’ve got each other’s back. it will be a while until the six of us will be together again, but bank on it

day 526 – car show

image

looking back to two summers ago when my family of four was in posession of five cars. had lots of fun doing a photo shoot under the train tracks. these photos make me think of the beloved acura that i grew up with. i love my beemer for many obvious reasons, all of which contributes to my quality of life. but sometimes, just sometimes, i can’t help missing my old car which served me so well and only hope the new owner treats it well

day 484 – the trio

image

flashback to way back to the first time the three of us teamed up for nationals 2013, when we still had old school mats. those evil mats that sprained my knee the night before competition and i was competing in agony. we came together as a team in an unexpected way and i am glad we did. those were the good times and I miss the bonding, training and slacking that took place from sunrise to sunset. still waiting for the day we could compete as a team once again
