Film Photography #1

A while back, I started film photography. There was a lot of trial and error, but I enjoyed every moment of it. I hope to continue improving my skills, and learn from my mistakes. Here are some shots from my first roll.

A Great Thanksgiving + Black Friday

Last week, I had a great Thanksgiving lunch/dinner. Growing up in a traditional Asian family household, I’ve never really had a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Since graduating, I was able to experience it during my company’s Thanksgiving Luncheon. It was a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, ham, roast beef, mash potatoes, stuffing, mac & cheese, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie (my favorite).

A Walk Around Campus

On Sunday, we took our dog Chibi to our university campus. We thought it would be nice to give him an extra-long outing, and a bath before Thanksgiving. Chibi is a 4-year-old Maltese, and he’s very photogenic. Of course, during the walk, my sister Wendy, her boyfriend Danny (travelingwithtech.com) and I, had our phones and film cameras ready to take photos of him and the campus.

Umaru-Chan Cosplay + Chicken & Beer for Halloween

Super late post, but better late than never. Two weeks ago, my friend asked my sister and I to come over for a small Halloween party – mainly just eating and watching movies while her parents gave out candies to the trick or treaters. I dressed up as Umaru-Chan from the anime Himouto! Umaru-Chan – yes, I even brought the plush with me. But, I did have to opt out the wig because it was heavy, and I didn’t want a headache. I will be cosplaying as Umaru-chan for upcoming conventions in January.

Favorite Japanese Snacks & Drinks

As I’m getting older, I’m learning about the importance of eating healthy and taking care of my body. During my college days, I used to be able to eat A LOT – not exaggerating. Every meal, I ate large portions. And I can’t even explain how my sister and I were able to eat all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ every other week, and eating fast food and instant noodles almost every dinner. Now, I can’t eat as much as I did before. My portions sized decreased, and I’m always leaning towards healthier options. But every now and then, I do have the urge to indulge in something sweet and savory. These are a few of my favorite (healthy & unhealthy) snacks and drinks that I like to purchase at my local Asian market.
