Another Question

You can read my other Question post HERE.

A question for bloggers: Do you ever feel like some of your posts fade into irrelevancy as you keep putting out new posts? That they get buried deep in the archives? I guess this question applies for bloggers that frequently post.

I have over 550 posts. Maybe you can think of a few of my posts on the top of your head, but I’m guessing they’re the more recent ones. I won’t blog any less because of this, though.

Do you agree? Let me know your thoughts.

Photos From My Walk + Gifts From Moya

The following three photos were taken on October 1.

Once again, thank you Moya for the gifts from Taiwan and the clay supplies! I still remember the last time you gave me gifts. I’ll definitely use everything!

After the rain

The hydrangeas have not fully bloomed but I thought I would take photos to mark the first day of summer (yesterday). Click here to see the hydrangea photos I look last year.

Taken with Canon EOS 600D. The photos are not edited.

This is from my Instagram story. The lyrics are from the song Ref:rain by Aimer.

Travel Diary: Bowen Island

I went to Bowen Island for a couple of days with two friends. It’s really close to Vancouver.

I felt stressed these past weeks and wanted a break from city life. Prior to the trip, I had not been on an overnight trip in several years and did not hike in a really long time. I am a homebody but it was relaxing and refreshing to be in nature. I felt peaceful.

I think that when you’re on the island, you are on an “island timezone.” What I mean by this is that there’s no rush and there’s not much need to check your phone. I wonder why I check my phone a lot more in the city- perhaps because a lot of people have the ‘need to be productive’ mindset?

Day 1

The view from the ferry.

The view from the top.

I would say that the highlight of the trip was stargazing. There is only one street light on the island. I had never seen so many stars before. They looked so big and I could see them clearly.

Day 2

The lighthouse and volcanic rocks.

I got my friends to watch The Untamed with me after our hikes. They became really invested in it, which was great. Hehehe.

Check out my friend’s cosplay

I was asked to take pictures of my friend’s cosplay. This was a new experience for me because I’m usually the one being photographed in cosplay!

My friend cosplayed as Ephraim from Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. He made the cosplay, except for the weapon which was commissioned.

Sea of Flowers

I went back to the sunflower field the very next day. My original plans were to go today with friends but after I told my family about it, they wanted to see the flowers for themselves. So that’s why I went twice. Going with friends means they can take pictures of me. :p

I wonder what it is about taking pictures that is so fun – both taking the photos and being the one photographed.
