Bird watching at White Clay Creek

I don’t know how to feel about watching wildlife in winter. I’m not even at the novice level, but I know that most birds are supposedly gone in winter and flew to the warmer parts of the world. It is true, however, that since all the trees shed their leaves, it’s so much easier to […]

The day after the day after the blizzard.

Snow can be pretty common if you live at the right places. Ice, slush and all other non-sense usually come with that. Icicles, however, require the right temperature fluctuation and ample amount of snow to form. These conditions make them both a stunning and rare sight when they do appear. We were dumped with 2 feet of snow, but everything started […]

Don’t Freak Out – It’s just a Snowy Saturday.

Due to El Nino effects and a warmer earth, Delaware did not receive any snow during this winter. In fact, there were days when temperatures were warmer than spring or falls. This was true until the east coast of United states is currently hit by winter storm Jonas. In the past 24 hours, it has been snowing […]

Let it snow (finally)

Finally! It took awhile, but snow has arrived. It isn’t too heavy, though, and there aren’t really sticking on the floor – You can’t really see it in the picture too. To be frank, I’m not a huge fan of snow because of slush and ice that comes after. However, I accept that as a […]

“Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?”

Truth be told, I had only been to Waffle House once. It is the joy of the south, but it didn’t impressed me the first time with it’s greasy kitchen and tight fitting booths. My mind was changing, however, after watching an exclusive by Anthony Bourdain and Sean Brocker (owner of Husk), I understand what Waffle […]

Chickity China The Chinese Chicken Beer?

Evil Genius – the beer company, not the gaming team – named their IPA after a catchy song. However, it neither taste like fried chicken, General Tso’s, nor contains any chicken essence. I was kind of disappointed without those ingredients, but their IPA taste really good! I’m surprise I have not drink this beer yet. Evil Genius, […]

CHOO CHOOO0000oooo….

I have to cross a railway track everyday walking to and from the University. You would think that because it crisscross a road, there wouldn’t be that many trains passing – You are absolutely wrong. Amtrak, or whoever owns this track, hates everybody, and the road get shut at the order of 1 time per […]

Root “Beer”

A week ago, I was drinking 2 to 3 pints of beer a day. I don’t call myself a fan of microbrews, but I love to try new stuff, and both Washington and Oregon are proud of their microbreweries. Since I have came back to Delaware, I hadn’t touch a single drop of alcohol for […]

Building blocks of today’s world.

I was sending Nicolas and his wife off back to Taiwan, and we stopped by Ikea to waste some time and hide from the cold. The temperature has dropped to -10C since last night, and we can officially announced the arrival of winter. Meatballs seem to be able to warm us up a little. Ikea started […]

Back to Basics.

Been drinking artisan coffee during my trip in Portland and Seattle. It is awesome to see barista taking the time, patience and dedication to decorate a cup of latte or mocha with latte art. No such luck in Starbucks though as they just pour a huge load of milk into the espresso shot; it’s all […]

Nighthawk.

Landed in EWR at midnight, and all the restaurants were closed. I was famished and decided that I need something to eat quick before another 2 hours drive home. That’s when I remembered about White Rose System, a diner that never closes. They are famous for their sliders, and you can read about it here, but this […]

Mt. Rainer!

I left Albert and Seattle on an Alaskan flight back to Delaware, and this is the first thing I saw from my window as we took off. Sunset + gorgeous mountain peak = What an awesome way to end the day. I’m sure to be back and visit you, Mount Rainer!
