Twenty Fourteen

Twenty Thirteen is over in less than 12 hours! How are you spending the last couple of days of 2013? I've been busy decorating my parents' new place and then I got sick so I spent an entire day yesterday bed-resting while marathoning The Walking Dead :) Are you excited for 2014? I, for one, can't wait for this year to be over and I'm excited for what God has in store in 2014! Happy new year, my loves!

Point Reyes National Seashore

Yesterday, me and a couple of friends drove north to the Point Reyes National Seashore for a perfect chill day after our finals week. We were having soo much fun walking down the coast trail towards the beach and racing with time (literally) to chase the sunset. It was a beautiful day with beautiful companies and oh how I love California!

Napa Valley Trip

I haven’t posted about my trip to Napa Valley a couple of months ago with my girl friends - I guess I just don’t want to relive the part where our rented car was broken into and my friends’ stuff were taken :( Anyway, the trip to Napa was wonderful and the view there was breathtaking - we visited 3 wineries: Artessa Winery, Rutherford Hill (where we had our picnic lunch), and Castello Diamorosa. All of us were having crazy lots of fun with Napa’s breathtaking view and their delicious wines. 

That night after we got back to San Francisco, we decided that the night was still early and we didn’t want to return the car just yet so we stopped by the Twin Peaks for a quick photo sesh. And that part of the day totally ruin the whole trip for us cos someone decided to broke our car’s passenger mirror and took our bags with them :( Note to readers if you want to visit the Twin Peaks in SF: Don’t leave yo stuff in the car! My friends thought since we’re gonna be down for like 15 minutes, it shouldn’t be a problem to leave their bags in the car but apparently not :(

Before I Die I want to...

(click for bigger resolution)

Candy Chang's Before I Die project is a big influence for my thesis. It's a global art project that invites people to reflect on their lives and share their personal aspirations in public space. It inspired me to put together some of the (silly) stuff that I wanna do before I die here. What about you? What are that one thing (or ten) that you want to do before you die? Don't forget to check out her work!

For Seven Days - Proof of Concept

Password: forsevendays 

Proof of concept video for my thesis project, For Seven Days, is finally done! Well, not done DONE though, I still have the whole month of January to revamp the idea for my thesis before the actual Midpoint Review but for now, I can gladly say that I’m done with 643!! It was a super fun ride throughout the semester. I got to see a lot of amazing talents and hardworking peeps in my class and I’m honored to be a part of it. I’m really excited to see where this project will go and I look forward to present this to the comittee next year :) One (final) down, two to go!

Not So Silent Night 2013

I miss the thrill of going to concerts and last night’s Not So Silent Night 2013 has finally fulfilled the need of my inner concert geek. 6 full hours of pure awesomeness by The Neighborhood, Bastille, Lorde, Alt-J, Phoenix, and Arcade Fire. The entire performance was truly satisfying. Our seats were a little far from the stage but that didn’t stop us from jumping and dancing when Phoenix was performing Entertainment and when Lorde was doing her iconic ‘twitching’. (Now it felt completely pointless of me for taking these photos cos you can’t see anything haha.)

Solo Movie Time

The Book Thief (2013) & About Time (2013 poster remake done by yours truly.
Going to the movies alone is probably one of my most favorite therapeutic things in the world. I have a lot of pet peeves when it comes to watching movies (people talking, people chewing popcorn loudly, people clapping??!, people giving unnecessarily loud comments, people talking on their cellphones! ughh) so going solo is practically perfect for me and I've been doing it regularly every week for the past two months! I didn't get to do this while I was in Singapore because the theatres were ALWAYS so crowded with teenagers (ugh) so it'd beat the purpose of going alone. Here in SF though, the cinemas don't get that many crowd on weekdays and IT IS SO PEACEFUL in there. It happened more than once that I got the whole theatre to myself which is pretty awesome. Goshhhh just the thought of going there every week got me really excited.

For Seven Days - Proof of Concept

This semester has gone by too fast! I'm presenting my thesis project next Monday and can't say I'm not stoked about it. This thesis prep class has been great and I'm pretty please with what I have so far. Although the real midpoint review presentation won't be until next February, I can't wait to revamp this entire project during the winter intersession and maybe start building pieces of it? (I know it's the holiday season and I'm being way too workaholic ssshhh don't stop me).
