SF Chinatown – September 13th, 2016

On Tuesday the 13th of September, I had to visit San Francisco to take care of some official business. My original plan was to just finish that and leave, but my friend GameMaster was in town, so I asked if he would like to join me to San Francisco. Luckily, he could come with me. It was great that I was able to hang out with him one more time before I journey off to the land of the rising sun.

Before the photos, I must apologize about the crappy picture quality because I didn’t bring my DSLR and only had my outdated phone.

As soon as we got to San Francisco, we were immediately greeted with the old style railway. At this moment, I realized that I haven’t really taken much photos of San Francisco, and that this is my last chance to do so.

月食(2015年9月27日) Lunar Eclipse – September 27th, 2015

During last year’s lunar eclipse, my zoomable 18~55mm lens was damaged and I had to make do with my fixed 35mm lens. This time around, I have a new 55~200mm zoom lens to play with.

This Lunar Eclipse took place on the evening of the 27th where I was at, in the Bay Area of California. The photo above was exactly how my camera captured the scene, without any post-editing. Continue Reading

SF Japantown – June 16th, 2016

On Thursday, June 16th, I went to SF Japantown with a big group of friends. The purpose was to simply spend quality time together with them. If my plan for Japan proceeds smoothly, I won’t see most of them again for a long time. Joining me that day was GameMaster, Rafflima, Lettuce, another friend from high school (who I will refer to as GoodNeighbor), along with Xyrenth and Xyrenth’s sister.

Thank you to Rafflima, who drove us (me, GoodNeighbor and GameMaster) to SF Japantown. The rest of the group came in from different ways. During the ride, GameMaster showed me his nearly completed HG Gundam Crossbone Full Cloth. It looks good and really exemplifies GameMaster’s painting style. It is almost finished, with just the weapons left to paint. Continue Reading

SF Japantown – December 21st, 2013

It doesn’t feel like it was all that long ago when I had my manga shopping spree at SF Japantown on Nov. 1st, but in less than 2 months, I’m back here again.

Since I wasn’t able to get my hands on Minamoto Monogatari Vol.4 last time, I knew that I would be back soon. But in addition to that, a couple of my friends were going to watch a movie here, so that made for a perfect timing. Continue Reading!

Lunar Eclipse – Dec. 10th, 2011

As some of you may or may not know, there was a lunar eclipse on December 10th, 2011. As someone who is pretty fascinated by astronomy, I decided to wake up early to catch the eclipse.

My alarm rang at 3:30am, and as usual, I hit the snooze for about 30 minutes. At about 4:10am, I reluctantly got out of bed. Afterwards, I proceeded to dress, warm up and eat a bit of food.

日本町 Japantown – June 20th, 2011

On June 20th, I went to San Francisco’s Japantown (日本町 Nihon-machi) together with my friends as a small celebration of freedom. However, that day was absolutely the worse timing ever in all of our trips to Japantown. First off, one of our friends wasn’t able to go on that day. Second, the restaurant that we usually eat at was closed on that day.

As a result, we had to eat at different restaurant. The food wasn’t as good and they don’t have any お好み焼き (Okonomiyaki). I also didn’t felt like taking out my camera except when we were at the restaurant so I only had mainly photos of food. 続きを読む Continue Reading

日本町 SF Japantown – December 18th 2010

This December trip to Japantown was planned quite a long time ago. We were all somewhat disappointed with our last few trips and decided that this may be our last. Read on to see how this trip went.

As always, we went into this market as soon as we got off the Muni. The location of the store was just too convenient. Read more of this post

日本町 SF Japan Town – Apr 10th 2010

On April 10th, me and my friends (as usual) went to Japan Town in San Francisco for the 桜祭り (sakura matsuri) Cherry Blossom Festival that’s held once every year. I also held a DC Meet-up on that day too, which was not successful & I carried a paper flag for the whole day. Read more of this post

On Dec 20th, last year, during winter break, me and my friends went to Japan Town in San Francisco to hang out together. This is my 2nd time there (excluding the times years ago), check out the 1st time we went there. Despite being the 2nd time, we still got lost for 3 mins. :P

This is my 1st time taking my DSLR out far, was a scary exprience. This post is quite image-heavy, close to about 40 photos.
