A Stroll in the Park with the Febbo's

Aaron and I have been meaning to do a mini instameet or a photowalk for the longest time now. I've known him on instagram for more than a year. We accidentally met at a local Asian grocery store and planned a small meet up or a biking trek through downtown. None of those happened until yesterday.

Roaming New York City - Day 3


In the Philippines, we observe a special tradition on the day launching the new year. How your next 364 days will unravel greatly depends on what you do (or not do) on the 1st of January. To attract good blessings, everything that has speakers is put on full volume, pots and pans are banged, and cars are driven around the village while horns are on full blast. Doors, even sink cabinet doors, and windows are kept open for a few minutes to allow good blessings to come and settle in. Kids jump as high as they can or hang on to the tallest post in the house in hopes of getting the extra vertical advantage. People refrain from lending or spending money on January 1st lest they want to have bad finances the whole year.

How did Paul and I spend the dawn of 2014?

Houston Coffee and Cars: A Prelude

February 7, 2015
City Centre
Houston, TX

Houston Coffee and Cars held its first event for the year at City Centre. It was a private event organized alongside Scuderia Society. The crop of cars were all of high caliber, as is expected with events hosted by the Coffee and Cars group. The number of cars in attendance was great, especially since it was a small gathering; and although we got there late, there were still a lot of cars that stayed until 10 AM.

Random Photos

We went to the Houston Museum District's "Join the Museum Experience" event last Saturday and we enjoyed visiting the Houston Center for Photography, The Menil Collection, and the Rothko Chapel. It was such a beautiful day to enjoy art and music in Houston.

Weekend with the Siblings

Dianne and I spent our MLK weekend in Austin with our grown-up siblings. The get-together was somewhat planned but it was mostly serendipitous in the sense that all 6 of us were available to meet up in Austin for a 3-day weekend.

Roaming New York City - Day 1

December 30, 2013

I know these photos are already old. They were sitting on my hard drive for about seven months now. These are just some snaps from my birthday-New Year's Eve trip to New York City. This day in the pictures were mostly spent going around Manhattan buying gifts, and meeting family and friends.

August 6, 2014
Rice Box Truck on Westheimer
Houston, TX

86 Day in Houston was a success, I would say. It was hosted by the Mayday Garage boys at the weekly Ricer Meet. There were a total of 8 AE86's in attendance, ranging from track/drift machines to street ricers.
