New Orleans, LA, 2018

Fun city and the food was delicious. A+ would go again.

Osaka > Tokyo. ‘Nuff said.

Tokyo/Yunishigawa-Onsen, Japan, March/April 2018

No words left for me to say about Tokyo. Love being back in Japan again. (more…)

Seoul, Republic of Korea, March 2018

Great city. Lots of places to eat and shop! But the pollution was something else… (Photos are out of order , so imagine if you’re me traveling in reverse)

Atlanta, GA, March 2018

Atlanta, GA, March 2018

Pretty cool place. Definitely didn’t feel like a city I’ve been to in the states!

San Diego, CA, February 2018

A short trip for my friend’s birthday. Great weather!

Travel Post-Mortem (2018)

Travel Post-Mortem (2018)

I have a confession to make: there was an ulterior motive to traveling to Taiwan. It was a way for me to test out packing strategies for future trips, as well as seeing what is an acceptable weight for my Osprey Farpoint 55 travel backpack1. […]

Taiwan, January 2018

Taipei, Taiwan. January 2018

Cats.
Surrounded, laminate cats.
Frosted glass, cold and hidden.
No rhyme, no reason. Cheap and easy.

My Time on Reddit – Nine Years in the Making

My Time on Reddit – Nine years in the Making

It has been nine years since I officially “joined” the Reddit community.

I put “joined” in quotes because me joining the community isn’t really “joining”, but merely a formality. It signifies by registration, my entrance into their login database, and does not signify my participation in the community. For that, I would only be in the seven year club rather than the nine.

This Blog Is Still Here

This Blog Is Still Here

I still remember this blog. I don’t really publish things but I hope I can focus more on this in the future. Maybe I’ll use it as a travel blog…

Kimi no Na wa and Koe no Katachi

Kimi no Na wa and Koe no Katachi

I think comparing the two films is a red herring because the two are vastly different movies due to their intended theme. Thematically, the two films are incredibly different. Koe no Katachi is a story about Ishida owning his guilt and shame that he created […]

Reality vs. Math

Reality vs. Math

It’s been a while since my last post, so I’ll keep this brief (like slowly rising up from scuba diving underwater so as not to get “the bends”). There’s been a considerable amount of news surrounding a general theme: Reality vs. Math.

Impressions: Apple TV 4

Impressions: Apple TV 4

The day has finally come: my Apple TV 4 (32GB) has come in the mail.

Funny story – I initially preordered it on Monday morning and got an estimated delivery date of Nov 2 – 4. A few days later I stopped by an Apple Store and lo and behold: they had a bunch of Apple TV 4’s, the one I preordered. At that point I couldn’t cancel it online so I stomached the wait for a few days and today it has finally arrived.

The Martian: Maybe Leaving Him There Would Have Made a Better Film

The Martian: Maybe Leaving Him There Would Have Made a Better Film

The title is harsh, I know. But it speaks a lot of truth to my feelings towards Andy Weir’s The Martian. Much like my review of Danny Boyle’s Steve Jobs, I’m going to give a short and a not-so-short review of both the movie and […]

Steve Jobs: Meet Aaron Sorkin

Steve Jobs: Meet Aaron Sorkin

Day’s almost over, but I just came back from SF after watching Danny Boyle and Aaron Sorkin’s movie Steve Jobs. I’ll give a short and a not-so-short review of the movie. Short: It’s a good dramatization of Steve Jobs and his relationship with other people. […]
