One of my best friends' wedding gave us the perfect excuse to see Hawaii for the first time. Since she'd been there several times before, it was the ideal spot for them to tie the knot. Beautiful wedding aside, we also got to experience the quintessential tourist and food spots. Road to Hana Would a … Continue reading Maui Wowee
I can't believe our little baby girl is turning three already. To commemorate, I've photographed her doing her favorite activity: staring out the window at the rain. Also, I made her a glamping tent. As expected, she couldn't care less when I first presented it to her; but later in the night, I didn't hear from her … Continue reading Happy Third Birthday, Clémentine!

Da Lat is a highland city redolent of many countryside European cities (or what I've seen in photos anyway, since I have never been to Europe) - perhaps that's why so many westerners … Continue reading Da Lat, Vietnam

Even for someone with a fear of heights, it was an exhilarating experience. There were … Continue reading Singapore + Bali (Part 3/3)

The cop-out would be that I never had enough time, but the truth is that the subject matter rendered me uninspired. Bali is a destination famed for its … Continue reading Singapore + Bali (Part 2/3)
Happy birthday to me! One of my favorite restaurants in Roppongi is Gonpachi Nishiazabu. The festive environment is perfect for a 30th birthday celebration. Everyone knows this restaurant for one reason, but what I love most is the staggered layout that forces you to get infectiously happy by other groups' celebrations as well. On this … Continue reading 30th Birthday at Gonpachi Nishiazabu
