Thoughts on Travel

I used to travel…a lot. Most of it was in my early 20’s. I just craved it constantly. Other travelers called this the “travel bug”…which was a great description cause it definitely felt like a disease I couldn’t shake. To me, the intrigue was that you could explore an entirely different world, an alternate universe…and …

Louississippi

I realized…I am really terrible at reviewing, editing, and posting my photos after taking them. This is a trip I took back in October 2015, and finally got around to pulling the photos off my camera today, April 2016. Oh well, lucky WordPress has a backdate feature :). So, took this trip to Mississippi for …

Brooklyn

It’s not everyday you run into a rainbow colored glass house, near a waterfront, with a bridge as a backdrop. But in Brooklyn, I suppose the chances are a bit higher than anywhere else.

Portlandia

For awhile now, I’ve been drawn to the Pacific Northwest. Not sure what it is…maybe it’s the amazingly clean air…or the beauty of all the green foliage as far as the eye can see…or the earnestness of smaller town people…or even the romance I somehow find in gloomy weather.

Tacolandia

Tacolandia…an all-you-can eat taco festival in LA. Over 80 taco vendors…unfortunately I maxed out at probably around 12. There was some pretty good stuff, but I’d say nothing spectacular. Overall, a very organized and fun event. It was hard to grab photos with all the eating going on…but here’s a few. I usually don’t go …

I finally decided to throw in the towel, and got some professional help to get her back up and running. I found this guy, Scot, the Mobile BikeSmith, and was so impressed with his craftsmanship…and quite honestly, with …

Site Redesign

So it seems my normal cycle of getting tired of my personal patcheung.com site…and feeling embarrassed about how dated it looks…is around three years. Doing the math…it’s been almost three years since my last redesign…so I suppose it’s time for a change. I’m still keeping it really simple, sticking with the one-page scroller concept. I realized my …

My First Mondo

So for a while, I’ve been thinking of how to decorate my walls. I think I’m suffering from the Steve Jobs syndrome, where he left his personal home unadorned and unfurnished for many years…my guess, most likely due to the inability to find perfect pieces that would fit his aesthetic. I’m hoping to not live …
