Taking a break! :)
Check out Liraco !
From the plaques placed in the High Line Park:
“The High Line was built by the New York Central Railroad between 1929 and 1934 to lift dangerous freight trains from Manhattan’s streets. The Highline’s trains carried meat, produce and dairy products into warehouses and factories at the third-floor [ed: British English: 2nd floor] level. It was known as the ‘Life Line of New York’.
As trucking began to replace rail as the primary means of moving freight in New York Cty, train traffic declined on the High Line, and the southernmost section as torn down. By 1980, the trains had stopped running.
In 1999, with the High Line threatened with demolition, neighbourhood residents formed Friends of the Highlight to advocate for the preservation and reuse of the structure. In 2002, the City of New York boldly committed to transport the High Line into a one-of-a-kind park.”
Interestingly it is less ‘one-of-a-kind’ as more cities are considering turning dis-used rail infrastructure into public recreation space.
I took a lot of pictures, these are the park itself.
Great shots! :)

A hot hot summer in Athens. Take some notes: 1. Do not visit Athens in summer ! (in fact do not visit the Acropolis in summer :p)
Note 2: Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Bernard Tschumi’s museum of Acropolis. The restaurant on the top of it is just great!
“lt is made of three concepts: light, movement, and a tectonic and programmatic element. Together these characteristics turn the constraints of the site into an architectural opportunity, offering a simple and precise museum with the mathematical and conceptual clarity of ancient Greek buildings.”
Note 3: You can actually take photos with five cores! These are original ones! The sixth is in British. No need to hide from museum stuff and to be embarrassed when they cry out “No photos please!”
Great post! :)
Check out cherry. blossom. lives. !
I went to get a pedicure with wrong shoes in San Francisco!!! Ok, I am in love with my red boots, but they are not ideal to be put on after a French Pedicure…But I was lucky to have a savior come to my rescue with my second favorite pair of shoes ;-)
Nice shot! :)
Check out Heavy Travel Addict !
Baker’s Hill is another tourist destination in Sta Monica, just a few minutes away from Mitra Ranch, and is popular for the bakery goods one can buy as pasalubong (homecoming gift) such as cookies, crinkles, hopia, and a lot more confectionery items. What started out as a simple bakery has been extended into a mini park, with nice landscaping and a lot of statues/figures perfect for camera-addicts. They also have a viewing deck, with a similar view as the one you can see from Mitra Ranch. Inside there are also a few stalls for drinks, food, and even souvenir shirts.
Interesting place! Love is always the answer! :)
Check out This Is Me !
After our most treasured Puerto Galera trip, my friend who is a local in Oriental Mindoro invited us over for a few more days of fun.
My good friend is from Victoria, Oriental Mindoro. We stayed the night at their abode then come morning they invited us over Villa Anna Paradise Resort and Farm.
It was such a peaceful and beautiful place. In here, you have all the time to spend with nature. If you are the type of person who likes the green green grass, tall trees, fresh air, chirping of birds amongst other things, this is the place for you. I must say this will be serenity with mother nature at its finest.
Nice shots! :)
Check out The Flying Mermaid !
I got to learn how to cornrow today(:
I am so grateful to be attending such a wonderful school, I get to learn new things everyday!
Learning should be fun! :)

We all wake up differently.Sometimes to dreams still lingering in our heads, the last thought before falling into deep sleep, sometimes to a crooked neck, to people we love drooling on a new pillow case or to a heavy head for there is still a little bit of alcohol in the blood.. and really just want to sleep in a little bit more.. Maybe I’ve always enjoy the way our sun slowly lights up the room, the fresh scent of a new day, the excitement of knowing you can have the freedom to undo the wrongs and have a new chance to life. Renewal. Possibilities. Growth.
I used to wake up earlier than everyone else to have a little bit of a quiet time to myself. I make a cup of tea, have some fruits and regain a little bit of consciousness. To reflect on what was done and can be better, to the hours I will be giving and the people I will spent with, to the flow of a the day and how we can meet on common grounds.
These days, I find myself doing the same routine but with a different perspective. Looking back at the days ,trying to not regret on the decisions made and how to move forward with others. These days, life is taking its own course to change and be meaningfully simple. Be in sync with people that matters, stop when they are tired, go when they can, push them when there is a chance for goodness and nurturing into something wholesome.
A timely wake up call for a new shift.
I used to believe we need to be on the same page or shoes to feel each others. But I am starting to think that we need to stop to try to be in sync, it’s nice to be in sync, but we are individuals. Individuals who try to be happy on our own, but come together and share the simple everyday joys just so.
Last night was exactly how it was meant to be, unadorned, honest and real. We finally got to celebrate our one year anniversary. It was perhaps the best way to enjoy an infant blossoming into something, hopefully, better. We are all silly, stubborn and eccentric. We are all a little insecure, quiet, and loud. We are all happy in our own ways, and searching for a sense of belonging.
Good thoughts and a warm picture! :)
Check out Bake, anything !
Here’s a photo of a fellow passenger on the Celebrity Summit cruise my wife and I took to Bermuda this May.
Nice shot! :)
Check out The Life of Your Time !
It’s been a bit of a crazy year, so far. Not always good, but definitely interesting and life changing. I’ve been cooped up for a while and when I got the chance, I went for it. A manicure, pedicure, and, as a bonus, a ridiculously relaxing massage, were enough to make this girl’s day. Enjoy the simple stuff. As John Lennon said, “Time you enjoyed wasting, was not wasted”. :-)
Wow, that sure must have re-energized you! :)
