It’s our first FULL day here in Hong Kong! We are staying at the Holiday Inn across for iSquare in the heart of the shopping district. I would go as far to say it was similar to Times Square in New York. Very similar vibe. Continue reading
This might have been the longest vlog I’ve posted (yet!)
Seriously, you never really truly appreciate your hometown, until you don’t live there anymore! The same is true EVERY TIME I go over!
It’s funny. Vancouver used to be the place I would travel to get away from Victoria. And now, the roles have somehow reversed (which I never thought possible!)
I went over to Victoria for the second weekend in a row to check out my buddy, TYSON ELDER‘s (creator & all-around badass of YYJ ROCKTOGRAPHERS) biannual showcase that he put on for local concert photographer’s. Always a fun time, the first night always having live entertainment and beer! Two of my favourite things!
LAST STOP OF OUR TRIP: PORTLAND
1) I wish I had gotten to spend more time at Powell Books (like 6 hours maybe?)
WE FINALLY ARRIVED TO CANNON BEACH!
ONE WORD: GOONIES!
My 10 year old self was in pure joy! I mean just LOOK AT THESE PHOTOS! The weather “looks” terrible but I can assure you it was pretty warm out. I mean I wish the sun came out, but it could always be raining, and that would’ve sucked.
DAY 2: We set out around 9am and headed towards the Oregon coast!
First stop, ASTORIA!!! The name that sounds like a land that belongs in a Fairytale!
We immediately explored the pier by the water and walked along there. We visited a few shops (a vintage store and a record/music/pet store) and walked around where the boats were.
GUNG HEY FAT CHOY!
HAPPY CHINESE NEW YEAR!

If you’re new here…I take concert photography and I vlog. Sometimes I make main videos as well. I (try to) post every Tuesday and Thursday. Watch or don’t watch? Things happen and things are said… so either plug your ears or avert your eyeballs, because it’s out there!
