It is not the first time I am posting a photo of this tree outside my office, and I gotta say it’s my favourite tree on campus. For the past two years, I noticed flowers beginning to bloom in February or March but this year, they were already blooming by late January. It gives me joy seeing this tree as I walk by and enter my office building, especially since the usual Glasgow rainy season has been relatively rain-free thus far. Spring is coming, or has it already arrived? 😉

Tinian makes the best cakes and I’m always happy to be invited as her guinea pig whenever she experiments with a new one. This time we had rose tea as well for a perfect night in!

Beautiful flower on our table at Rioja accompanies a good appetite!

Jan 17, 2017 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Melancholy

I was filming an amateurish and experimental short video with my good friend Yuehong and also taking random shots of her as the main character in different locations around Bordeaux. The video was meant to portray a melancholic atmosphere, and I think YH showed it perfectly here, with an air of sorrow, uncertainty, and a tint of hope. (See the original photo in colour.)

Update: Today is the 5th anniversary of this blog! I’ve had loads of fun running this daily blog over the past five years (though I didn’t always update every day) but I’ve decided to end the “daily” aspect of it here. I will keep the blog alive but will post perhaps only twice a week instead of once a day. Thanks for your continuous support!

Jan 16, 2017 – [Monday] Anything Goes: Seagull in Kunming

Seagulls aren’t exactly a rare sight and contrarily, they are quite commonly seen in many places. However, seagulls in Kunming during the winter is a completely different sight. At the Green Lake, thousands of migrant red-beaked seagulls arrive for the winter, taking advantage of the warmth of Kunming. I had never seen so many seagulls in one place all at once, but here is one that I managed to get quite close to. Hi there!
