Blissful days off in NYC

Spending a day off walking around NYC with Nioka. We ended up having a early evening coffee at The Smile.

What to Wear Daily: Stella McCartney Motorcyle jacket

My friend Hieu went ahead and stopped in the middle of the road so he can photograph the sky. Isn't that amazing? Its just a few blocks from my parents house in Sacramento. It's not something you really get to see in full view in Manhattan.

I love this jacket. It fits really well and it's so warm. The pockets are really deep too.

Free Access: Joanna Newsom at Carnegie Hall

I love love love Joanna Newsom. She is even more amazing live. Last time, I got to see her at Great American Music Hall in SF, when Ys came out. Quite possibly one of the most moving performers I have ever seen in my life. When I see her, her performances are extremely emotional to me. Being able to see her in this historic space made it even better for me. If she ever is touring near you, I highly recommend seeing her, no matter what kind of music you listen to.

Music just heals my heart and soul. I'm 3000 miles away from my whole family and it just isn't the best feeling in the whole world. We are extremely close and it gets tough sometimes. Seeing Joanna really picked up my spirits. Things in my life can get extremely stressful.

(I know this photo is awful quality. Just blame it on my Blackberry.)

Back to Cali... and Koi.

Guys... I am just running around like a chicken with it's head cut off!

I still don't have internet access... When that is official I will really start posting... I swear!

Anyways... I went back again to Cali before the holiday because my job permits me from leaving any longer than 2 days during the holiday. I have this itch with wanting to travel all the time. I'm obsessed with it. I'm going to be flying to at least another city for leisure each month. I just got my camera back when I flew back to SF from my friend Norm. He is pretty much too lazy to mail it back to me... that it took a flight back and 1.5 months later for me to get it.

This is a photo of my parents backyard. They have had a variation of a koi pond for years. As time progresses, the pond gets larger and larger. They have raised them since I was a kid. When I came back home this last time, I didn't realize how ridiculously huge they have become.

And... oh yeah. Happy Tofurkey Day!
