I heard about the goldfish market in Mong Kok but when I went to see it, it was much different than I imagined. Plus the entire street was full of pet stores of every kind [including a store just for bunnies!]. It was definitely a sensory overload.. like many other places in Hong Kong.
Things have been good but busy here in Delft. My friends and I had a homemade sushi night on Friday and it was pretty delicious. Next week at this time I’ll be on a plane back to Vancouver! In the mean time I have a bunch of work to do for studio and my other courses, the Festival of Lights is coming up on Tuesday night and a birthday/Christmas cocktail party on Thursday. Lots to do and look forward to in the coming week.. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season so far!

Even though it was a grey and drizzly day, visiting Notting Hill was quite enjoyable. I loved all the colourful pastel rowhouses [picture four is my absolute favourite colour combination]. There were so many nice boutiques and shops in the neighbourhood, I could have spent hours browsing them but we were on a brunch mission. We ended up going to Tom’s Deli/Café which was pretty good and kept us filled for most of the day.
Trees are finally starting to bloom around here now as well. Now that I’m finished with my report and group work, I’ll have more time to get out wandering and exploring [and hopefully go on a few bike rides too], yay!

Another thing I loved about Rome is the colours you come across in the street. A lot different than Vancouver, that’s for sure!
I spent most of the weekend getting my room tidied and organizing books, clothes and supplies for packing. I’m really trying to be selective about the clothes I bring, but it’s hard. I keep thinking to myself, “Well I might need this one day..” . Fingers crossed I won’t be ridiculously over my weight limit for the plane…
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

The title of this post may seem deceiving, but I liked these four photos together because of the similarities in colour. I found the architecture of Seattle to have a lot of these sandy/beige and ocean tones. Vancouver for me is more of the light greys, blue/green and whites. Anyways, I’m rambling a bit, but I do like these colours together.
Yesterday I went to a dinner party at Federica’s place and she made some amaaaazing pasta! And tons of other delicious food. And our friend Dan is back from working at some architecture firms in Copenhagen and Berlin and had some great photos to share before he heads back to Berlin for another few months.
Anyways, I hope everyone is having a nice Easter weekend! I’ll be having brunch with my family tomorrow and then another small dinner with the fam on monday for my birthday + my grandma’s birthday. Enjoy the weekend!

These are just a few photos I took when my mom and I went to look at some antique store a few weekends ago.
I used to go to these places a lot when I was younger with my mom and grandma, but it had been a while since I’d been in one. Especially one with a colour coordinated retro kitchen ware section! There were so many super cute things I wanted. I can’t wait to go back and have another look and maybe buy a few things.
On a side note, I got back from a short trip to Seattle today. It was great and I took lots of photos! And I tried out the Olympus.. I’m really hoping the photos turned out because I didn’t know my way around the camera that well.. and I’m still not 100% certain of its condition. Should be getting the film developed tomorrow..
Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I came across some pretty interesting buildings on my walk last week.
I took a picture in the alley to the right of the first building, and I didn’t really notice much about the building itself until I crossed the street. I was hoping the guy in the third floor wouldn’t notice me creeping on his building [he didn't]. Something about this one looks a bit precarious, but I like the sage-y colour of the bay windows.
I like the intense colours on the second building, I think it’s some kind of plexi-glass material. Although it does seem kind of random..maybe remnants of some commercial enterprise?
I had walked by the building in the 3rd photo a bunch of times on my way to and from work last fall and always wanted to take a proper picture of it [ie. not on my iphone and not in the pouring rain]. I like the red fire escape.
I was quite happy to stumble upon the last building. From what I remember the front of this building [the photo is of the back] is not this wonderful. It’s pretty much my favourite colour. [I also made another photo of this building my new header]
Anyways, I still have some more photos from this roll to post. I also took some photos yesterday when I went to this antique store with my mom. They had an amazing section full of 1950s kitchenware and accessories, that was colour-coordinated.. it was great!
