Downtown Los Angeles at night - May 2012

I recently joined/met up with The Light Chasers meetup group to photograph Downtown Los Angeles at night. It was fun and I plan to visit Downtown Los Angeles again, but during the day next time. I also took some photos of a tunnel and Angels Flight right before meeting the group. For more photos, click here!

Cherry Blossom

One of my goals this year is to update more often. I've slacked off last year.

Here are some photos that I took recently. These were from a cherry blossom tree in front of my neighbor's house.

On an unrelated note, please visit and follow my foodie blog.

Karate Tournament February 2012

I went to a karate tournament yesterday at a YMCA in Upland, CA. The person, who hosted the tournament, also has classes there and he used to be a student for my instructor. I didn't compete, but here were some of the students from my class who competed and won trophies and medals. I took a lot of photos during the tournament and you can see more here!

Volunteering: Knitting Hats For Children with Cancer

I met up with the SoCal Volunteeers United meetup group last night and we made (knitted/crocheted) some hats. We don't yet know WHERE the hats will be going, but we do know that they will be given to children with cancer. There were nine volunteers (and a teacher who helped those who were new to knitting and crocheting), and I was the only who didn't need a loom (a circular frame). However, it was actually more time-consuming to make a hat free-hand style. I made a baby hat, but I made it halfway when we were done by the end of two hours! I think I will have to go back next week to finish what I started as I don't think the teacher will finish it and I'm the only person who can make a hat free hand.


On a unrelated note, I've updated my foodie blog so check it out! I also recently went to a photography workshop, so check out the photos here!

Volunteering At The O.C. Ronald McDonald House

I have to start making an effort to pay more attention to this blog for my personal photography. I feel so sad that I've abandoned it!

Anyway, I recently volunteered at the O.C. Ronald McDonald House with the Everything Under The Sun Is Charitable of OC (volunteering meetup group) and we made an Italian meals for the CHOC (Children's Hospital of Orange County) patients and families.

The OC Ronald McDonald House allows CHOC patients and familes to have a place to live when they're unable to go home for various reasons. This house was created so families didn't have to sleep on the couch/floor in the hospital while their family member(s) get treatment at the hospital. There are 40 rooms, each room can hold up to four people, so the house can host up to 80 people at one time. Sometimes patients/families come from out of state and even from othe countries to stay here for their family member!
