Why did I ever find myself in mainland china? in search for the best spicy beef noodle soup? authentic dimsum? yang chow fried rice? siopao? green tea? I got to tell ya the food was excellent but that wasn’t why I came to China… not really… Truth is, I went on this trip just to have some alone time, experience traveling solo on a foreign land where nobody knows me and having not to speak any word of their language. Also on my agenda is to take photos and update my frequent flyer program…

so here we go… sightseeing the new world China…

FLOW SurfYogaSamba weekend retreat

May 1, 2010

I’m back! sorry for the very much delay on updates and photos as I’ve been so busy with summer… Summer can only mean 3 things for my métier: swimming, swimming, and more swimming….

So, Where was I? I did get a chance to shoot an extraordinary “retreat” a couple of weeks ago… I’ll get to the photos shortly, but wait a second, what’s so special about this particular “retreat“??? “retreat” by definition can have several meanings… In the military, it means an act of moving back or withdrawing from enemy forces as a result of their superior power or defeat. “retreat” likewise means a change in one’s decisions, plans, and attitudes due to criticism by others. Lastly, “retreat” also means “to withdraw in a secluded place where it’s quiet“.


This “retreat” I’m talking about is different from any other “retreat” we all know. Yes, It’s a “retreat” where you want to withdraw and get away from the bustling city, the stress of everyday life, and get far far away from the harmful pollutants/pollution we are so used to in the city and re-connect with nature. Yes, it’s also a “retreat” where you can find a place to decide? maybe a major aspect in your life, a change in your game plan? hhhmmm that being said, this “retreat” is all of those + a heap-load of jollification processes that you yourself will benefit from. The endorphins will surely surge your system into a blissful happiness that you’ve always wanted in a “retreat“.


FLOW SurfYogaSamba is a union of Monica, Noelle, and Denise’s (organizers) brilliant ideas brought together by passion and unselfish act of teaching what they l♥ve and actually have a great deal of fun doing it. By the looks of their title you can tell that you’ll totally get “stoked” because there’s some Surfing

L♥ve for photographie is timeless.

February 24, 2010

I remember when I was younger (some 20+ years ago)… One of my favorite past time deed was looking at our family photo-albums. It was readily available for viewing in our small library. I lved viewing it, in fact I view them over and over again: before taking a nap, when I get back home from school, and whenever I remember that it was the time of day to view the albums.

(My brother in his bicycle under the rain with his helmet and underwear only…) PRICELESS!

My family lves taking pictures! We have thousands of carefully albumed photographs, 11,590 + to name the ball park. My mom and dad had an idea of scanning every photo album we had with their new canon scanner, 11,590 + photos! amazing isn’t? I uploaded everything HERE!

Anyway, a few days ago I started viewing them once more–one photo at a time in my apple notebook. I felt like a kid again… with just an advance viewing technology. hahaha! And for some sentimental reason, I was on a high! It felt good! I felt happy! I felt nostalgic! and yes, I felt lve!
