Port of San Francisco

This past weekend I had an opportunity to attend the ONA (Online News Association) Conference at Hyatt Regency in the financial district in San Francisco. I was there mainly for the job fair and the career summit, perhaps a little too blindly, but things turned out better than I had anticipated. 
But anyways, I decided against bringing my D90 this trip because I wanted to try something unconventional for myself - which's completely relying on my iPhone camera for the most part. I did bring one film camera - the FM10, but as the iPhone was obviously so much more convenient for me to bring around, I tried to maximize the use of this phone. 







One downside is though, that when you take all your photos with your phone, your phone WILL die in the middle of the day when you actually need it for navigation and GPS (or the original functions, like, you know, calling people).










Walking down the strip of eateries, cafes and different types of market (shroom shops and butcher shops! oh and biscuit shops too) made me really miss living in this type of environment, but I can wait.

Life is Sweeter With Sugarbox

I was first drawn to this place by its interior decor. With its all-white leather furnishings and clean and dark wooden walls and floor, the store at the first glance through the huge windows (major plus) exuded chic and elegance that stopped almost every girl (and boys, I'm sure) to take a closer look. Cute decor and macarons? Plus a variety of wine selections to go with the cake balls? It's a perfect place for some quality ladies' time. 







Sugarbox is located a t Shops at Legacy on Legacy Dr. & Dallas Tollway - Plano, TX.

Some Changes

So as I've moved back to Plano, TX from Austin about a month ago - I figured that the previous purpose for this blog would no longer be valid. Therefore, I decided to change this blog into somewhat of a restaurant/coffee shop review anywhere I go, and also an outlet for my photography. Fun stuff. Or I may make some more posts abut Gilmore Girls (for which I apologize in advance). Or I may post about my unemployment projects that I've been doing lately. Whatever they may be, I hope you find this blog helpful/useful/inspirational.

Thank you!
