Once again, here goes another year in just a blink. It’s hard to acknowledge that 2016 is already over. Some may think that 2016 was the known to be the most dreadful year. Undoubtedly, 2016 will definitely go down in history as a popular topic for politicals and celebrities. But then, there are those who loved 2016. I, however, am in between of both of the above. I considered myself as having a pretty decent and lovely year. Moreover, I am most certainly enthusiastic about the upcoming year, 2017!

It was winter break, my mom and I drove to Baltimore and stayed there from Christmas night until New Year Day. We still remember that Christmas night where almost everything is closed. We was so hungry and searched all over the city for foods for hours. Luckily, we found a small Italian restaurant that is about to close so we rushed in and ordered some fried chickens and a large pizza. Then the next couple days, we went to Fell Point, the National Aquarium and others. Best part for me was all the $1 oysters. I am absolutely in love with them!! They are located in the same street as Thames Street Oyster House and Riptide by the Bay which is the two restaurants that we went to during our trip.

On January 2016, there was a major blizzard around the Mid- Atlantic and Northeast United States. But the blizzard turned out to be a blast for me and my family even with all those shoveling! In Philadelphia, we had around 3 feet of snow and my dog (Baby) love it so much that she want to go out every hour!

Chinese Autumn Festival! The three friends above are my good friends that are studying aboard and away from their hometown. While I also celebrate the same tradition, why not celebrate it together! We made homemade dumpling and stuffed by moon cakes.

Valentine’s Day Party! It is sad to admit that we’re all single but I wouldn’t trade this day for any other boys. We all got each other and what more could you wish for?!

Prom!! It’s somewhat odd that it is on April fool day. But it was super fun especially the after party! The exhaustion came from couldn’t find a way home until 4am. The day after prom, I went to Baltimore again because I can’t get that delicious oyster out of my mind!

Doing Community Service with my best friend! It was such an experience to work with the disabilities and the needy. Would love to go again! If you see Hand to Hand, go volunteer!!! You’ll love it if you love helping others!

Since I’ve wasted about 10 years in New York City, I would really like to know my hometown more. So I went down and tried the most trendiest foods I found from Instagram. If there’s any question about the place I went to, feel free to ask me through the comment section or personally contact me! I’m more than happy to answer them!

My cousin from Hong Kong came to Philly and visited me so I decided why not invite a couple friends over to surprise her! Then the next day, of course, I brought her to Baltimore to try my favorite seafoods!

School’s Spring Festival with my favorite violinists! We have this every year and this is my second year performing since I started in the beginning of sophomore year. Being a part of Orchestra is such a breathtaking experience! It’s so much fun and best of all I learned how to play one of the hardest instrument!

First time going to bowling after years and years ago. Turn out that I wasn’t that bad at all in sport! I have literally no talent or whatsoever in sport. I can’t hit a baseball with my bat, I can’t kick the soccer ball, I choke on pool water and whatever else you can think of, it probably happened. But bowling was super fun and we went to Downtown to grab a bite after all those workouts!

Spend a day around Rittenhouse Square with scenery. Love it there! It is a very open and comfortable area to hang out or just to take a walk in.
You’re probably thinking that we’re a big baby but hey you’re not wrong! If sometime look fun, go do it! It’s doesn’t matter how old you are (as long as it’s legal)! Beside, there wasn’t even that much kids. Kids nowday like to stay home with their Xbox and never leaving the house. It’s pretty common. So for those who love fun, grab your friends and go for it!

Jim Thorpe was the most beautiful places I’ve been to so far. It was surrounded with hill, mountains and greens. You’ll see many people swimming and hiking. Inside the rocky mountain, you will see so many waterfall. NATURE LOVER ALERT!!!!

What’s better than having some tasty dragon bun’s juice melt in your mouth when you’re hungry?! It’s one of my favorite Chinese food! After eating my meal, I saw these really trendy garden-like dessert on instagram so the first thing in mind is that I have got to try it!!! It is so cute and creative. The one I had taste so goooooood! Warm in the inside and cold on the top with mixed some berries. Mmmm. At night, there’s a Chinese Latern Festival in Franklin Square Park. Everything was light up and put in place so beautifully. It wasn’t as big as I thought but there was a lots of people visiting because of the cultures involved in it.

That was a sad but fun type of day. So, we was supposedly be super excited for our summer jams concert but then when we got there, it was cancelled!!! Neither of us knew but the others got notified. So we was kind of lost because well, what can we do now. After we stand there by the gate for about 10 minutes, we started to walk to places so we went to somewhere around 2nd street. We had a little photoshoot and that was really fun. And my friend got to try bubble tea at a really adorable cafe!!

TWENTY ONE PILOT CONCERT!!!!!! That was one of the best concert I’ve been to!! Since I created an obsession for myself with Twenty One Pilot, I was about to just explode when I heard that there’s a concert in town. So I grab my friend and hit the road and we danced like crazy. Although, my friend are not too familiar with them, we still had a great time.
That’s the end of the school year! Next post, “Summer Time” !!!!
