Being the huge, big city that Tokyo is, even the darkest corners are sometimes brightly lit. Like life, no?
In case anyone is interested, the first shot of the night cityscape was taken from Tokyo Skytree and the following photos are from Yokohama. 🙂
Almost exactly a year after my Japan trip, I’ve finally finished editing them. Out of the 500 photos I snapped, only 40 made the cut; the ‘cut’ to be seen by the Internet. Weather conditions throughout my stay wasn’t exactly photo-op-friendly, but thank goodness for Photoshop, right? 🙂
16 Habits Of Highly Sensitive People
Growing up, being sensitive has always seemed to be a negative trait and as I grew up, it became a flaw in my personality which I had to fix. A flaw that was frowned upon. These habits… most – except the part about avoiding violent movies; I’m actually okay with them – seemed to describe my habits pretty well. But often, these habits are misunderstood.
They have to be fixed.
But at least I know I’m not alone. I’m not that messed up. It’s just how I am and maybe, I’ll learn a way to use this part of me to a good, a better advantage.
“We hide who we are or what we want to do in this corner of our room simply because we are too timid to stand up and profess that we want to do what we love. Be brave. Take the risks and step into the unknown because it will be satisfying when you finally discover what it’s like to wake up and find happiness in your actions each day. And so to that person who said your twenties are for paying our dues, I say to you we must agree to disagree. Our twenties are for doing what we love… And so our our thirties, forties, fifties, etc. Our life is for doing what we love.”

Just like how Sir Patrick Stewart was like an icon and serves as a reminder of my childhood, so was Jackie Chan – especially before he got to Hollywood. He may be a huge star now but he remains a humble person, and that is so amazing. Spotted this video off HuffPost, of him telling his BEST STORY EVER and it’s basically him in his earlier days, fangirling over Bruce Lee – just like most of us ordinary people. 🙂
Before I knew Patrick Stewart as Professor X, I remember him as a starfleet commander on the Enterprise. Star Trek. It was one of the few things my father and I shared, next to Xena the Warrior Princess. Well, it was just something I would watch with him. Either way, I’d recognize him and his bald head anywhere – and that’s not an insult, mind you. But I was like 5 or 6 or 7, what’s a little girl got to know. And then there was his assistant whom I called Powder Face – I googled his name yesterday but I forgot again. Was it ‘Date”? “Data”? The android anyways.
I’m going besides the point. A couple of days ago, I saw a post about P.S eating pizza for the first time and this morning I found this post. It talks about domestic violence, specifically to women. And he shares about his own personal experience growing up. And it never occurred to me that this badass captain (I was a kid, I mean I thought Xena was badass too) I watched as a kid had a less than grand childhood. Not that I saw DV in my home but this was something that made sense, that touched me. Watch the video and you’ll know what I mean.
In a nutshell, this proved even more that he was and is a true captain. :’)
