Went down stairs to Seven-Eleven and bought two cans of Taiwan beer. Didn’t even get carded. Didn’t even turn red. Score!
Super stroked to see Ray!
- Had dinner at Wilbur Hall. I was very impressed by the Pho bar. Ray wasn’t, however.
- Took the picture above. We were once Asian tourists. Now I still am. We got an Asian tourists couple to take the picture for us.
- Went to Taiko concert under Sophie’s recommendation. Amazing. Bing Concert Hall, gorgeous.
- Stayed a night at J-row. Met Ray’s dorm mates.
- Woke up to go to church with Ray. C3 church: very interesting urban atmosphere and a young professional undertone.
- Great weekend. Muchos gracias to Ray :)
This song is so pretty and peaceful, but somehow I can just feel the anger rising in me like Pat in “Silver Lining Playbook”.
She’s kinda awesome
I have tickets to go see Monsters University early release on Monday…BUT it’s freakin’ hell weak. Ain’t got the time to travel downtown to watch a movie when I got projects and exams to juggle.
Sigh…first class seats on the struggle bus
Biked with Corin and Sean to a 24hr Tex-Mex restaurant!
- biking in the dark = instant adventure
- really legit hole in the wall = waiter barely spoke Spanglish
- fusion of a sub with beef fajitas, pretty dare good
- “forgot” to tip…oops
Like usual today in lab we had to split into groups of threes. Usually I get away with working in a group of four with my two friends and an annoying tag along. However, today the professor called us out and pointed out a group of two, since one of their usual members weren’t here. I volunteered to move over. I was a bit annoyed at first, till I realized the girl in the group was cute.
What an rare opportunity to work with a female in compsci lab. CS major success = spoken to a girl in class.
JK I am just exaggerating. It’s not even that bad. Its like 30% girls at least…
Checked out Houston’s Montrose neighborhood with Matt Makansi, Corin Peterson, and Connie Shen.
- When to Matt’s pad
- Checked out Rothko Chapel
- Bike to Westheimer and store hopped between the thrift shops, book store, and cafe
- See the exhibits at the Menil Collection
Great weather, great bike ride, and awesome adventure!
Owl thank you cards that I made for St. John and Machado! hoot hoot!
This morning, I was running late to my first class, but I wanted to get some breakfast so my stomach won’t be making odd noises in class. I rush the servery to grab something on the go: a coffee cup full of honey nut cheerios. After putting the coffee lid on the cup, which seemed pretty secure, and I needed to free my hands to open the door, I put the cup in my messenger bag. By the time I got to class the lecture was about to start. I managed to slip to the back of the hall and was ready to munch on my cheerios. Unfortunately the cup full of cheerios had now turned into a messenger bag full of cheerios. Fin.
the 2012 summer project that I didn’t complete, several cards short of the original goal
Went to Tamsui with grandpa, uncle, aunt, and mom. It’s my first time there in years!
- Checked out fisherman’s wharf and the landmark bridge
- Went to old street
- Grandpa was intrigued by a street performer that painted himself like a statue and moved robotic-like. He stood there with the crowd around the performer for a very long time. The rest of us was wondering why he was so captivated, until he proudly exclaimed, “It’s human. It’s human. It’s Adam’s apple makes the natural reflexes of a human breathing. It can’t be a robot.” As he trot down the street, the rest of us made eye contact and smiled.
- We made the usual trip to the shop that sold fish ball soup. Since there are a lot of shops that sell similar products, I ask my grandpa why he liked this particular shop. “It’s famous! Lien Chan (former KMT presidential candidate) came here before.” I laughed, “Don’t you hate the KMT. Why would you trust his taste?” “Hmph, if it taste good, it’s good.”
- Then we went to the wonton shop that we always go to too if we come to Tamsui. It was difficult to recognize the shop at first, since they remodeled it, but the food didn’t change, delicious like before!
- Then I had this sweet soup thing in a sweet shop and a traditional red candy sweet from a vendor.
- The sunset! The night skyline was beautiful, especially with the lights glowing on the other side of the bay.
