I was thinking about Italy the other day. Mostly because I was thinking about pizza but the weird part is that we barely had any pizza while we were there. Maybe once? It was all pasta baby. And it was so delicious. 98% sure it’s the best food I’ve ever had. How about you? Where was the best place you’ve eaten?
I loved photographing the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo. It was so peaceful and beautiful standing up there. In case you’re thinking about going- there are a lot of stairs to climb or you can do the lazy route and get a taxi to get you there. That’s what we did. All the pasta was weighing us down. HAHA. Its worth it though. It is the best view of the entire city. It’d try my best to get there as early as you can though. A lot of people were waiting for the sun to set even an hour before it did.
It’s also a great spot for people watching. There were so many different kinds of people there. A couple of people were there painting the sunset, others were photographing it, but everyone was enjoying it. There was even a Chinese couple standing next to me. They had no idea that I could understand them but the funniest part was when he was watching me change my lens. It’s like he was giving a play-by-play to his wife. Mostly because I tried balancing my lens on the edge of a balcony. I could feel that he was nervous for me. He kept on saying “too dangerous, too dangerous” and when I was done he gave huge sigh of relief. LOL. I don’t even think Andrew was that nervous for me. It’s funny how all these memories are spurred out of thinking about pizza…
Ridin’ into 2017 like…

Cheers to 2016!
Do you guys have any new year traditions? Besides the usual goals and things like that… One thing that I do is clean the house and get my hair cut. As I was growing up this was one of the things my mom used to always tell me to do. So every new years eve the bed sheets get washed, the house gets cleaned and I get a haircut. I’m really not sure if it’s a Chinese thing or something that my mom just did but it’s always a great feeling to start the brand new year fresh. Do you have any New Year traditions like that?
An iconic view of Ponte Vecchio in Florence but I think its even cooler to walk across it. Theres all these little shops and people playing music on the bridge. The doors seem so tiny. Like how can anyone fit merchandise in these little stores?
I stopped to take a picture of this restaurant. It was so cute with the flowers in the windows. That’s what I remember most about Florence. The atmosphere and the feeling that you’re in a different century. Then a guy that looks a little bit like Anthony Bourdain zooms by and you can’t help but smile at the playback.
