Life Ain't Perfect.
Winnie: Did you hear that Katelyn's graduation ceremony is the same day as her Disney trip?
Me: Ya... I heard.
Winnie: Imagine the stress and conflict the 6 years old must be feeling. This is probably the first ever difficult decision in her life.
Karlovy Vary 2012
Karlovy Vary is a Spa city located 130 km west of Prague. It was named after Charles IV, Holy Roman Emperor in 1370. According to legend, it was because he had acclaimed the healing power of the hot springs. Through out the years, Karlovy Vary developed into a spa resort. Especially after the railway lines to Eger (Cheb) and Prague were completed in 1870. The reason why there...
This week we have Pollia condensata, it is also known as the Marble berry. the berry is particularly interesting because it is known to be the shiniest object from nature. The blue colouration is the most intense natural color there is, reflecting 30% of the light that falls on it. Researchers from around the world tried to figure out what kind of pigment it has and tried to extract it. But...

Prague has a history of 1100 year. Founded during the Romanesque. Prague was also the capital of the Holy Roman Empire at some point in History. Going through the Gothic and Renaissance eras, Prague has a...

What the actual F*@K is going on???? So I was in bed, but for some reason my whole body was heating up and I couldn’t fell asleep. Been rolling around for a couple hours. When I finally fell asleep at like 4 or 5 am, I had this apeshit dream. I was in my apartment, my cousin was on my couch looking at videos of a toddler version of him holding a baby version of me. (Which by the way, is...
Pleasure. Flow. Meaning.– Ping Fu
I dreamt that I was on an island of steel and lava. The water level started to rise, flooding the island and I had to keep going up to a higher place. it was until I was on a 1x.5 m box that the flooding stopped. So I was there sitting on this box looking at nothing but an endless sea of water. I called my dad and asked him if he could pick me up with the helicopter, but he was busy. I was...
Nature Sunday is back yo =P…. I figured I can do it the first sunday of each month instead of every Sunday. This week we have the mysterious underwater crop circle. Under the sea in the semi-tropical region of Amami Oshima, 80ft below sea level, there are sightings of perfect rings with a ridged pattern. As it turned out, the rings are the work of pufferfishes as a mating ritual....
On my last blog post, I talked about war scars of Germany. Unfortunately, Dresden is the best example for it. Dresden is the capital of the German state of Saxony. During WWII, 722 heavy bombers of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) and 527 of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) dropped more than 3,900 tons of high-explosive bombs and incendiary devices on the city. In merely a 3 days period,...
Do you know what it feels like?
It’s like there are knots in your heart that you never knew you had. And every time you tell someone, one of the knots gets undone and you feel exponentially lighter than you ever were.
Frist World Privilege.
Today right before I headed out, I looked at the mirror and realized I was wearing a T-shirt from the US, pants from UK, Bulgarian styled boots from Hungary, Japanese branded jacket from Hong Kong and headphones from Canada. Hell, I think the wallet I got from my parents is from Italy. All I could think of was “Damn you lucky bastard.” I mean things like this are probably beyond...
My world is spinning like a carousel.
OMG this is nerve-wracking. o_O”
Spear & Shield.
Mother is the most contradictional person ever. Your apartment have so much junk, throw some stuff away. Here is a carpet because you need it. You need to do more exercise, lift some weight or something. The groceries are heavy, I’ll carry them. Don’t over eat, it’s bad for you. Take half of my burrito. Where is the logic?
I wear it because it reminds me of myself when I was less aware of who I really am.
2 more days.
Mom is coming today.
