somewhere in barbados….

I recently made a friend/pen pal who is living the life that I would want more than anything right now.  Not only does he get to travel the world but he gets to fly, for most part, in business/first class, stay at the best hotels and dine at the most exclusive places.  Okay, seriously beginning to like this character less and less as I talk about him…

This shoot was from couple of years back.  But I still love it whenever I see it.

Katherine sent me an one liner email that read, “photo contest AND you can try the new Dominos Pizza” with the link for “Show Us Your Pizza” contest.

Villa in Anadalucia by McLean Quinlan Architects

Saw this on Diggy’s blog (<- i am still not convinced that he’s writing this blog on his own).    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a house like this for me and John.  I mean who wouldn’t right?

Serious Eats is one of my favorite sites to visit.  It keeps me updated in all the places that I would LOVE to check out and also I get to stare at all these fantastic food pix.  WARNING: Don’t go to this site if you are hungry.  You’ve been warned.

A gentleman named Rick Norsigian is living the life that I want.  He bought some negatives at a garage sale for $45 and eventually discovered that the negatives belonged to the great Ansel Adams.  And yes, Mr. Norsigian was recently informed that the negatives were appraised for $200 million dollars.

I don’t know if I would consider myself the biggest Anthony Bourdain fan, but his show “No Reservations” has been one of my favorite shows for a fairly long time.  I actually became his fan while watching him on Food Network in “Kitchen Confidential.”

@ a shop called “The Meadow” in Portland.  Salt, chocolate, and flowers….

This was our first shoot for our multi-cultural cookbook for our church.   1 wrapping paper, 1 side table, 5 lamps = MacGyver shoot.

more flowers for events… feels like spring is right around the corner

garden rose/tuplip

after coming back from the flower market this weekend, I had green tissues paper all of the apt.  Teffie looked so nice against the bright green.

Tigger chillin’

Soon Doo boo jji gae (Spicy soft tofu soup).  On a really cold winter nite, there’s really nothing better.

The Cookshop is right around the corner from my office.  But on this day, I was definitely distracted by the bright red pepper shaker.  It was sooo pretty.

On Valentine’s Day John and I ventured out to Brooklyn to get some awesome tacos.  While I was trying to take a picture of John’s reflection on the window I noticed this girl staring at me taking the pictures.  Her stare was so intense and direct, I had to take a picture of her.

Snowstorm in Fort Lee, NJ

nj sunset

hellooooo booyyyssss!

something green to say “happy st. patrick’s day” (@red lobster)

View from our balcony after the snow storm.  It was so incredibly peaceful and breath-takingly stunning. 

This was our dinner the nite of the really horrible snow storm.  Yes, this would be comfort food for Asians.  Soba noodles with veggies, tofu, kimchi, and nori.  It was super yummy.

Cell phone telephoto lens.  Do I need to say more?  I would like one please.

An artist named Dina Goldstein’s Fallen Princesses brilliantly depicts a realistic portrait of how things might’ve turned out for some of our beloved fairy tale princesses in the modern times.  I could totally see Cinderella having some serious marriage issues due to her childhood abandonment and abuse issues coupled with being married to the “Bachelor”.  The photography was beautifully done and these images do stirs emotions and impacting conversations for the audience.

This is Harriet.  I didn’t fully understand the meaning of a scaredy cat until I met Harriet.  She’s so scared of everything that John and I joke about how she will most likely die of a heart attack.   Everything scares her.  The wind, the rain, the doorbell, footsteps, printer printing, clicking of the mouse, cell phone ringing, and the list goes on and on.  But somehow she has managed to survive in the Kim household as long as she has.  We love her dearie and I hope she will be with us for long, long, long time.  She’s also not comfortable showing affection or receiving affection.  She gets super tense and cringes everytime I hold her.  John says it’s because she sees me like Elmyra from Tiny Toons.  I would like to think otherwise….

Teffie chillin’ in a white crate

This is my dear buddy Tigger.  My favorite.  But I only tell him that when the other cats are not around.  I don’t want to show favoritism.  He was tiny when we first got him.  And since people ususally don’t believe me, I have to show them pictures of Tigger when he was just a tiny kitten.  But now when people meet him for the first time, people are in shock  at how big he is then ask what we feed him.  I kid you not, he will be the biggest cat you’ll meet.  I always try to take flattering pictures of him.   Tigger is an awesome cat.  Dog-like cat.  Such an incredible companion and I do truly love him!

Is it bad that I want this camera?  If I had all the money in the world, one of the things that I would love to do is collect cameras.  All different types of cameras.  I would like to start with this LOMOGRAPHY DIANA F+ CHROMIAC please.
