Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

New Year 2009

Part of being an Asian is growing up with superstitions. I was no different. I was told that what we do on the first day of the year have imapcts on what we do through out the year! So I decided to do a few things that I would like to do for the rest of the year.
1. I woke up late.
2. I ate breakfast.
3. I prayed.
4. I helped out a friend with her move(not that I only want to help people moving stuff, I will be happy to help with anything!)
5. I cooked Thai food(I’m not Thai, I just cook it pretty well).
6. I organized the pantry.
7. I talked to my mom and sister on phone.
8. I watched America’s Funniest Home videos.
9. I had a relaxing time with hubby.
10. I blogged.

One thing I was not hoping for new year is to go through any sort of illness. I have been down with cold. I feel dizzy and light-headed. My new year started with stuffiness all over

To make me feel better I decided to post some pictures from my recent trip to Charleston, SC. I was in Summerville, SC(to be exact) during the holidays. The most exciting part for me was to visit the Magnolia Plantation. Jason took me to this beautiful plantation three and a half years ago and asked me if I would marry him

Standing on a partially broken bridge with two baby alligators underneath, I couldn’t say anything but Yes! We went back there during our trip only to find out that the bridge was collapsing and no human access was allowed. We ended up video taping and taking pictures of the broken bridge.

It doesn’t look broken, does it?

This place has beautiful bridges!

Jason took this one. Isnt’ this place amazing?

This is Spanish Moss. They are every where, hanging from every single tree in Summerville.

There was also a Swamp garden which we didn’t go to. But there are swamps inside the plantation that we could walk by.

I think Magnolia plantation is the most beautiful place in Summerville, but you know I’m biased. If you ever visit Charleston, be sure to stop by any of the plantations there. You won’t regret it!

Warm wishes for everybody

2008 has been one of the craziest years of my life. So many things happened in my personal life and also on the business side. I am thankful for everything that was brought to me. Future holds unknown, but I hope that 2009 will be as good as Santa has been to all of us!

May the new year brings love, laughter, happiness and prosperity to everyone, everywhere!

Cool Hand Luke’s

Couple weekends ago I attended the VIP party at the newest steakhouse/saloon in town, Cool Hand Luke’s. My clients Nezar and Laurel are the owners of the restaurant. Jason and I went and tried out the awesome food the restaurant has to offer. The fried artichoke hearts were awesome. I also tried the grilled apples (accompanied by the juicy sirloin steak) for the first time in my life. Everything we tried was yummy! We loved the Bread Pudding! Jason said it remnded him of the bread pudding he used to have as a kid!

I also had the opportunity to meet Laurel and Nezar’s extended family one more time after the wedding. I’m glad Jason was with me this time and he had a chance to meet them all as well. I was sooo positively overwhelmed with the compliments I received for their wedding pictures. Everyone that was at the wedding and noticed me at the party came by and said how much they enjoyed viewing the images. I felt lucky again to have met these wonderfully nice people. I was just happy to be able to capture the sweetest memories for them.

Back to the restaurant business, if you live in Sac or in nearby towns or you are in the greater Sacramento area, be sure to check out Cool Hand Luke’s. It is located on Sunrise in Citrus Heights. I know I’m going back soon and ordering the grilled apples and the bread pudding for sure
