Apr 14, 2016 – [Thursday] #tbt: Classmates

Waterloo, Canada, taken on November 17, 2005

When I was an undergrad, since I was in an engineering program, I had a lot of classmates whom I liked to call “hing dais”, or “brothers”. Five years of classes together meant a lot of bonding time to get to know these hing dais, but this is a photo of one of the first events that our class participated in, when I still didn’t know anyone very well. Some of these guys would go on to become some of my very good friends during my undergrad years, without whom I wouldn’t have made it through. Hope they’re doing well…wherever they may be!

Apr 10, 2016 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Future

Waterloo, Canada, taken on June 19, 2010

Today is the future of 10 years ago, of 5 years ago, of a year ago, of yesterday…and soon will become tomorrow’s yesterday. Almost 6 years ago, I stepped out of university as a “bright-eyed graduate” with a “brilliant future”, like everyone else in the crowd. Well…at least that’s what they said. Was my future “brilliant” if today is the future of days past?

Apr 05, 2016 – [Tuesday] Black & White: Bookshelves

Sintra, Portugal, taken on March 28, 2016

During my trip to Sintra last week, I saw some badass bookshelves inside a mansion at the Quinta da Regaleira. The mirrors lining the ground looked like a glass floor at first and I thought that below us was another library while really…the bookshelves were reflected. Really cool!
