I used to listen to this song when I was teenager. I didn’t understand the meaning of lyrics ( I didn’t speak English ) but I listened it again and again until I remember lyric. it was more than 15 years ago. So let me remind you that we did’t  have cell phone or laptop at the time. Everything was totally inconvenient. I needed to pay $30 for one CD! To a teenage girl, $30 was not cheep. That’s why just one CD was very special to me.

Unfortunately I didn’t have the CD anymore. Maybe I threw it away :(  But now I can listen to this song anytime with my phone or laptop. How wonderful but also missing 90s.

My great husband sent me this video. 

Yes, let’s go exploring.

Twenty years from now we will be respect ourselves by the things we did together. 



Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. ” - Mark Twain.


How to make your Mom’s happy? 

I am a grown up. But it doesn’t matter how old I am or how far we are now. Maybe I am a still little girl for my mom and forever. We both always wishing each others happiness. 

I love this idea that creative way to tell your mom she is going to be a grandma.

I will do it to my mom someday:)

My little buddies are interested in everything they see. They are full of intellectual curiosity.
When I am with them, I realize there are so many interesting things around us that grownup miss easily.
Thank you for realizing me, my little buddies. I always enjoy your imaginations.

My 2nd roll of black and white film.
Many things that I don’t expect usually come into view when I walk with camera on the street. Camera makes me feel like I’m a adventurer. Be with camera I’m always looking for some interesting objects or moments, it is like a treasure hunt.
First 10,000 photographs are your worst. 
So that’s way I’m not gonna stop taking photos until see my best one.

My first roll black and white film.

The day was perfect sunny day and people seemed relax and enjoy blue sky. One of the best things in San Francisco is this!! Blue sky and there are so many places where we can just relax. 

Of course no need to be fancy, just wear comfortable clothes that you love and go to the park. If you can find good coffee on the way, so much better. Now ready to enjoy sunshine:)

Forget about cell phone. Enjoy to have a conversation with people around you. Read some books. 

This is what I like.


Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
Because I’m happy
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

この歌詞とても好きです。Because I’m happy:)
