and i dream...

utata front page

One of my photos was featured on Utata front page sometime in June. I was so excited and it really made my day.

Today I got an email from one of my favorite photographers on Flickr, fiftyfootshadows, with a proposition of featuring me & my photography for the next Flickr Spotlight on his website. I'm totally stoked and can't wait to see which photos he's going to choose.

I've been down for the past a few days with the job that doesn't inspire me at all and I just started regaining the energy to dream again. John's email came in just about the right time and I'm very motivated now. I'm working on my TO DO list again and thinking about vol.2, button design, photography books, etsy shop, blurb, post cards, acrylic paintings, visual poem etc.

Yes, I dream therefore I am.

eleven years.


Peter flew in for Two Week in Seoul and left a couple nights ago. It has been already eleven years since he and I met the first time in Tokyo. I was schooling and he was traveling for his documentary film making. It always amazes me how I get to meet people, get connected, and stay in touch in different ways...

The past two weeks had been wonderful having someone around who knows/ understands the path of my life for the past challenging years. The mug on the left in the picture is one of the gifts Peter brought from Zürich. I take it as him being supportive on my We Dream project.

It says Nothing happens unless there is first a dream.

new friend

janessa's dream

I had a wonderful afternoon spending time with a new friend Janessa. Janessa and I've known each other for quite a few months however it was the first time today for us to hang out alone.

After a photography exhibition, we went to a cute coffee shop to rest our feet and enjoy the summer afternoon with some tea/ coffee.

I asked her to be a part of my "We Dream" project. This is her photo I took while she was talking about her dream. I think people look the most beautiful when they talk about their dreams and passions.

we dream

we dream

It was Monika's last day at work today. She's been a great co-worker, an excellent supporter, and a wonderful friend for the past a few months. I'm sure that I'll miss her at work very much everyday however I'm so happy for her that she gets a chance to travel, explore, and experience more of the world.

Monika has been one of those very few friends who encourages me to pursue my dream and inspired me to be more creative. Thanks Monika, you will be missed very much.


We dream therefore we are.

I was listening to the new album of Sérgio Mendes on the way to work today and the long-cherished desire to travel to Brazil came back.

So, here I am, daydreaming again. I was thinking, take all of my savings, buy a decent camera and lens, get the around-the-world flight tickets, visit friends, take photos, and maybe work as freelancer if I'm lucky enough.

It seems like we waste a lot of times waiting for something to happen. A lot of excuses support the idea of waiting... but who guarantees what's going to happen a year from now, a month from now, a day from now, or even an hour from now.

Anyway, for now, here I am listening to some Bossa nova and daydreaming of Brazil, and still waiting.

dream of you everyday.

dream of you everyday.

I close my eyes, walk down to the ocean, and I become a part of it.
