Sapa, Vietnam, taken on December 31, 2015
The trek to Sapa involved stopping by a local’s home to see what rural Vietnamese life is like. It was the cold rainy season and we were shivering all over upon entering the house – should have joined the party around the fire! (See the original photo in colour.)
Glasgow, Scotland, taken on September 24, 2016
I like to stick photos of my friends and postcards I’ve received from them on the wall in my living room to remind me of their love. Add a few flaming red maple leafs from Canada for a real taste of home as well!
Toronto, Canada, taken on February 2, 2014
Out of the four seasons of the year, winter is certainly not the one that most Torontonians would look forward to, as snow-shovelling inevitably becomes the national sport. We do get some extreme weather conditions, but that is characteristic of a Canadian winter and strangely, I enjoy it to a certain extent. When I experience Scottish winters with temperatures of -5, complaining how cold and windy it is, I think of the -28 that my friends and family are facing in Toronto, and all of a sudden Glasgow doesn’t seem so bad 😉
Bordeaux, France, taken on January 2, 2014
The tram tracks of Bordeaux are one of the elegant city’s most recognized features, traversing the downtown core like veins running through the body.

In the house where I grew up in China, my uncle makes home-style tea while chatting with my mom.
