Welcome to the world of miniature, this is my first experiment and I am still pretty much developing a concept which is the most difficult thing to do. These figurine is not that cheap and you can spend a pretty penny buying into this hobby.

iPhone images

Lake Oswego
The world seems to get smaller and smaller, at least one of them is the camera, soon I just bring my iPhone or smart-phone for that matter for my travel and day-to-day simple photography, why bring all the weight? These are my collection so far this year.

One night in Astoria

The view from our hotel room
When the weather forecast is calling for a dry day, I booked a hotel in Astoria to break the monotone of the dreading winter in the Pacific Northwest. We became a local tourists, that's a good thing!

Cutting Board


Using band saw to cut the corner
Bob is making an over the sink cutting board for Pokie, we just could not find it anywhere for this type. So we "special" order it from the woodcraft master.

A Mini Reunion with AAP

Enjoying the fall colors
A junior high friend visited Portland and me for a few days, the weather is nice - no rain, can't complain as it is a beautiful fall day. We went to find fall colors, follow by a pilgrimage to the Grotto and top with a visit to Pittock Mansion to see the view of Portland from above.

Phoenix Trip - some snapshots....

Rest stop on the way to Slow Low
My two weeks vacation came and gone, I had a good time, thank you to Indra, Risma, John and Bob who took me around Arizona other than the desert and the heat.

I enjoy so much, someday I will come back to Monument Valley, it is still in my bucket list
