Events where I take like 600 pictures make it hard to pare down the best ones for this blog. I’m trying to really pick out the best pictures I have and limit posts to under 100 pictures. Ideally i shoot for around 50. So this post took a lot of effort. Back in July 2016, […]Read more "Panic! at the Disco: Washington DC Redux"
Kalahari is a place I’ve heard great things about. Some of my friends go there every year for Colossalcon. I’ve been meaning to go, but haven’t had an opportunity; so when Lindsay told me they were going for Garrett and Savannah’s birthday and invited me, I jumped at the chance. It was kept very warm […]Read more "Kalahari for Garrett’s birthday"

Friday I headed to my parent’s house to celebrate with family. During dinner I learned a few things about why certain foods are served at dinner during New Year’s and some other cultural history. For instance, the reason we eat Tofu (豆腐) is because it sounds similar to 多福.Which means more luck. I need to start writing some of this knowledge down or I may forget, oh wait, that’s this.Read more "Chinese New Year – Year of the Rooster"
Living in the metro Detroit area, the second half of January always signifies the coming of the auto show. I’m not a very big car guy, but recently I’ve been going to see all the new models. More recently it’s because I am in need of a new vehicle and NAIAS is basically a giant car dealership. Ravi was free on Friday so he accompanied me on my vehicular viewing.Read more "2017 North American International Auto Show"
