a morning goodbye

Photos taken during my last hang-out with my two friends, Astha and Nik...

Astha, Nik and I spent our morning together at a coffee shop, sharing food, chatting, and looking through Astha's baby photos. I really enjoyed spending this morning with them and I am very grateful we got to hang-out just the three of us before my departure to California this coming Sunday. 

I appreciate the friendship I have developed with them during my stay in Vancouver and will always cherish all the good memories of  the times I spent with them!!

it's just those rainy days...

Took a few photo shots of my friend Astha today afternoon! Very much liked her yellow umbrella and aqua-coloured rain boots!

I will miss this dear friend!

these days...

Been spending these days hanging-out with my friends, writing my final papers, enjoying the sunshine outside, and  falling in love with a special guy! I am feeling so happy every day, and so alive! I am loving life right now!! Can't believe how quickly time is passing and how little time I have left in Vancouver. I will be so sad when the goodbyes come, but I try not to think about that too much  because the present is still here. All I want is to simply live in the moment and make the best out of the times I share with the people I care about and cherish being with. <3

a sunny day in April

It's been a while since I did "a day in photos" blog post so I decided to do one today! 



I woke up and checked the weather network - a sunny and warm day ahead! =D

Cutting the vegetables for my breakfast.

I decided to make pasta for breakfast... lol why not?  I drank some apple juice with it too.


To match the weather, I wore a flowery dress.^^ 

Some streets were filled with blooming cherry blossoms. 

Many pleasant-looking sights. I think the sunlight helps a lot.

Looks like a nice spot to spend an afternoon with a friend and drinking coffee.

Does this ressemble something? ...a lama!

Hanging cups on the branches - wonder if it is for the birds to drink.


Who wouldn't want a free kitten?! 

Turkey pesto sandwich! I first discovered it in October with Sarah, when we were house-hunting together and decided to go into this coffeeshop for its internet. 

A dog waiting outside for his owner. A lot of people smiled at it when they walked by. =)


A glimpse of the ocean.

A rainbow in the fountain!

Got a bouquet of daisies on my way back home. 

I think they're my favorite flowers cause they're so simple, yet  still pretty and colourful.


My awesome housemate surprised me with a bowl of chicken and rice that she brought for me from her workplace!  So nice!

Books I got from the library today - planning to browse through them tonight...


I enjoy days like this when I am not stressed with work and can take my time to do whatever I want.

I'm happy.


Today was just a really good day and I was in a great mood all day! 
In the morning, I got my summer internship confirmed and I was so excited!! I got the kind of work I wanted to do and I'm going to Prague, my dream city! I couldn't be happier with this wonderful opportunity! 

I also had a great lunch with a couple of my friends/classmates on a grassy hill on campus. It was so sunny... so nice and relaxing... we were sitting up there, chatting with each other, joking around and laughing,  watching other people do their activities... I really cherish moments like this!

I spent the rest of my afternoon shopping for summer clothes. I bought a few and I can't wait to wear them lol! ^^

Life is good and I'm happy!
