My NY was spent at home, and I even heard people around us yelling and singing :P

So, I was home, watching TV, with my cousin on the computer. My Uncle came down and we stayed up a bit later and had sushi, but yea…

Happy New Year to you all (I know this post is really late…)

Since I don’t think I’ll be (and probably shouldn’t) be living on soup alone, I made pasta. This was a meal that made a feel every satisfied afterwards cause I haven’t had a meal really met the expectation in my mind (not saying this is of high standard). It’s more like this came out EXACTLY like I wanted, can’t same the same for all the other meals I’ve had.

I know personally that I’ve messed up my dates since I didn’t blog for a long time, but CLOSE ENOUGH. Anyway, during this time, my cousin went up to China again for studies, so I’ve been alone in the house again. Rather than eating out, I decided to cook for myself. Here’s some soup with bread. I underestimated the amount of soup… so this was my dinner ==

I remember that on this day, that lots of people also had pictures of sunsets. Guess it was a nice day all around the world :)

A rather interesting and good thing I like about this job (well engineering jobs I suppose) is that there’s a nice balance of in office and out of office times. I’m not stuck in an office all day, and I get to travel around. breathe. discover.

In case I haven’t mentioned… I do my chores on a weekly basis over the weekends. That’s the main reason i get a little grumpy if anyone disturbs me then. Cause I have my stuffed planned out, please don’t mess that up!

My daily picture project isn’t going so well. Again. Typical me.

Sunday, December 23, 2012

No pics today, I needed to open a bank account and get my inheritance… a little depressing how in the end, a person is only split as an amount of money =^=

What better way to end the world… than make a person with a fear of heights climb 10m worth of ladders!

After work today I went to Mong Kok (near Prince Edward) for dinner with relatives.

I’m very happy when we get to go out for site work mainly because:

The weather is becoming cooler…

O-O I don’t remember… and I don’t have pics to remind myself.

I do remember that I have mostly been bludging in the office cause there is no work… One day my supervisor even left early by half a day… and left me with nothing to do…

I visited Gma today…

So I ventured out into Mong Kok today again…

A ladybug landed on my hand today. I’ve never seen a red on before, mostly just yellow ones.

Just working as usual…

Today I missed my company shuttle bus… and since they arrive hourly, I resorted to taking a taxi… And since I work at Lantau it automatically cost me $30 more! totalling $125

No I’m not afraid of her, it just marks the changes I need to make with another person around (female too…). ^^ I’m not that bad, I just get over fussy about little things that I think others might dislike.

So now that I have a safety card thing, I’m allowed on sites!

Quite a busy day in fact.

._. It was a Saturday and I spent most of my time at home relaxing, watching full metal alchemist and browsing the net… This picture was taken in rush… Nothing much else to report. Sorry!

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Today I took a test for a safety card. This lets me go on site to work.

The weather report was so wrong, it was predicted that the weather would get colder and colder… But today the weather was sunny, so sunny to the extent, I thought I woke up late.

Not much changes in terms of office and stuff. But I now have my own hat and reflective coat :)

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Quite hard to believe it’s been a week… just another 12 or so to go.

First day at work! Surprisingly I wasn’t as worried as I thought I would be. I was worrying more about why I WASN’T worried…

You see that red white thing? That’s where I’ll be working

Spent the day visiting “Maternal” relatives :)

Today I spent the day testing the transport to work. Woke up at 6 to get to work at 8… That went smoothly, the rest didn’t though…

Today I spent most of my time getting my communications up.

You can view that above pic as a photosphere here

I’ve gone to HK for work placement…

I’ve read many many quotes in the past one as such: “Truth takes years to build, seconds to destroy”. They make sense and I understand them. I was just hoping that I’d never need to experience these first hand.

Just today a handful of my long time friends had a house warming party, I won’t go into the details and review the party. But let’s say that the “playful banter” got out of hand. For some reason, I was the one getting picked on. I don’t mind the occasional push and shove, one on one arguments, that’s friendly bonding after all.

Essentially 3-4 people my age (ranging from almost equal to bigger taller people) tried to pin me down. I don’t know about you, but that’s one person per limb in the worst case. I feel completely helpless. From pleading for it to stop to physically pushing them away to the point of me having to actually to TACKLE people away makes me feel terrible.

I don’t like resorting to violence (probably say never had). And even in this case where I DID resort to such an extent. It didn’t work. I feel worried. Helpless. Paranoid.

I don’t mind tackling hobos away for self defense. I don’t know them. I would be willing to do anything for self defense against people I don’t know. These are my FRIENDS. Is it not suffice that I’ve said stop it? From the normal stop it. To aggressive snarling. To pleading. What does it take for me to stop someone I trust? Break their nose? In the end, it came down to “fight or flight”. Fighting 3-4 people is tough enough. Having to fight off your friends is just not do-able to me. So I decided to walk out.

In a brighter note, there are those that stood by me. The fact that they didn’t make things worse or stood neutral ground is more than enough to make me feel happy. I appreciate people like that. I feel it was worth it that I didn’t take sides to put you people at risk and essentially put you all through all that.

I know they probably didn’t mean all this. But I still feel awful that it needed to go this far.

For my 365, I’ve often used origami to fill in some of my photos. For one particular theme “leaf” I decided to fold a maple leaf.

I thought it would be easy… but it turned out much harder than I wanted (took my 2-3 hours to learn and finish). That’s a sign that I haven’t folded in a long long time.

I found this interesting blog post I wrote in the past (which never got posted…)

After a while… I managed to fix my Pentax! Seems like it just developed a fuss over they type of batteries I put in.

Sunday, June 10, 2012

I came up with this WONDERFUL idea for my blog. I’m going to write letters to myself (sounds awfully disturbing, but hear me out). This series is essentially, where I leave myself a “drift bottle” from the past. I don’t know how often I should do these, but for know I think I’d make it half yearly.

So in half a year, I will write a letter “back” to myself, with reflections and things I’d like to say to myself.

Long story short: Don’t expect exceptional quality photos from camera phones and P&S… especially without a tripod.

The usual… end of semester “I have no time” crap.

In the meantime, please keep yourselves entertained with this .GIF

I’ll see what I can post if time allows.

We can’t always carry a DSLR with us, sometimes not even a P&S. The best camera you have is the one that’s on you at that moment; which is probably the one on your phone.

While camera on phones lack hardware to produce truly good images, we are very lucky that there are apps that add functionality and help make our photos look better.

It’s been a nice week away from a smartphone…

ohyeah

It’s not all that bad, there are some things this phone does well in comparison to the normal smartphone.
