Today is so relaxing. I think my energy tank is filled up for next work week. (Hay! Hay!) I was in JF Library this morning reading modern architecture – a recent interest. I don’t exactly know where this is heading but my interest usually diversifies whenever the daily activities become a routine. So when I was back in the library (finally!) to return the first architecture book I borrowed, I spent another 2 hours reading Tadao Ando‘s approach in architectural design.

“Can we go back to Luang Prabang?” Lala asked after I felt her firm tug. I saw a need of escape from her eyes. “I miss their calmness” she added.
I skimmed the area as if I still need evidence that we are in Chiang Mai. We were there trying to keep our hands together as we walk through the long road of Rachadaemneon. “Be mindful and stay close” I replied.
If I was in Bangkok and someone suggested to try TukTuk, I probably decline and say I’ll just walk or take taxi. So when I saw the same mode of transportation in Hanoi, I hesitated – at first.
Our hotel host hired 2 cyclos for us at $7/hour each.

Memories of making bead accessories to sell in school and creating class bulletin board in 3D view instead attending Chinese class are still clear to me. Days when I carved a love letter on a fiber glass or made marketing materials during college are still blissful in every way. And then, of course, my love for writing.
After I graduated and finally worked professionally as an engineer, the “creating artistically” in me became a side-hobby.
Blue office cubicle, old gray table, matrix data computation, stiff business letters and what not are my norm now. Creating eventually became technical as inspiration became blander than ever. To save my creative side from eventual demise, I go out & grind to find my inspiration.
Creative surroundings is a subject of pursuit now.
