Dog wearing the cone of shame in Colombia

Mortifyingly obnoxious

Welp, this website used to be my private blog, but then I recently found out that Google is actually indexing this website so it’s showing up on search results, so this blog isn’t so private anymore. I guess that’s what you get when you don’t follow Google SEO changes as closely as you should.

In any case, I am going to refrain from blogging about anything that’s controversial. Might hamper my ability to gain employment. I believe employees have the right to vocalize their opinions online – especially in our modern-day society – but I know not all employers feel this way, so I guess there will be fewer personal blogs from now on.

I will say though, I feel absolutely terrible today. Maybe living in London has increased my compassion and empathy for others – which is likely – or maybe I’m just being overdramatic – which is also likely – but good gods, have you ever been in those moments where you just want to crawl into a hole and just die of embarrassment?

Because that’s me right now. Ugh.

  • It always surprises people when I tell them that even though I was born in Hong Kong, I've never actually been back to the city. But I've always had an affinity to the city because of all the Asian entertainment I consume. And as someone who tries to stay up-to-date on global affairs, the Hong Kong protests was something that I followed closely over the summer.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I wasn't able to attend Toronto's supporting protest in its entirety, so this photo is mostly for memory's sake. It's good to see people in Canada supporting people in Hong Kong, but I do wish the crowd was larger. I wish more young Canadians would take action in what they believe in. Your world won't change if just complain about it to your friends. Apathy is the most dangerous weapon to democracy.⁣⁣

I'll end this photo caption with this quote from Albert Einstein:⁣

"The world will not be destroyed by those who do evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything."
  • The Queen's Library at the Frederiksborg Castle in Denmark. The grandeur of this room left me utterly speechless. Photo doesn't do it justice. 👑 #Hillerød
  • Igreja de Nossa Senhora da Vitória, a Catholic Church overlooking a street in Porto, Portugal. 🇵🇹 (This photo looks way better without the Instagram compression. 😪) #Throwback
  • Nagy Vásárcsarnok, Budapest's Central Market Hall. About a two-minutes walk from my hotel. 🇭🇺 #Throwback #VisitHungaryHU
  • Impressed at the design of this roof. 🚍 #Vaughan
  • Throwback to last summer when I had longer hair and I was about 10 lbs heavier... Actually, that's not true. I went without weighing myself for over a year, so I have no idea how much I weigh here. 😂 But isn't Oslo beautiful? This is by their historical area, where their main marina is located. 🇳🇴
