Hakone I: Hot Springs (Onsen 温泉)

One of the most majestic experiences of my life was spent in the gorgeous pool of the Hakone Hisui with my grandma (祖母), as she swam quietly back and forth.

Paris II: Latin Quarter + Le Marais

We walked from the Latin Quarter to Le Marais.

We stopped for fresh pressed juices from the Sugar Plum Cake Shop which was the perfect place for … Continue reading

Oakland III: Vietnamese Sandwiches

My favorite spot to get vietnamese sandwiches is Cam Huong in Downtown Oakland’s Chinatown. I like their barbeque chicken sandwich, which is stuffed with vegetables, like carrots, cucumbers and cilantro, and sliced and pickled daikon-like radish.  It’s a little bit sweet and tangy. I’m pretty allergic to taro, but I love their taro dessert with … Continue reading

I’ve tried their pizza once before; it … Continue reading

Berlin IV: Flying Bach

We waited in line for a pretty long time to see German B-Boy crew Flying Steps perform to Bach at the Neue Nationalgalerie museum in Berlin, and although we found out the show was completely sold out (we were very bummed), I was able to document the entire thing from outside (the audience was prohibited from taking pictures from … Continue reading

Berlin III: Potato Pancakes

We went into KaDaWe a department store our moms would love.
