adventures can get costly. to get to this remote place, you need to rent an off-roading vehicle on top of the normal expenses. the jeep alone cost me $300/day.

"the yellow brick road in the wizard of oz is a metaphor for the concept believed by many immigrants that american streets were paved in gold." clarence sherrick
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
speaking as an immigrant who moved to america at the tender age of 6, i still believe our roads are golden. despite all the craziness happening in my country right now, there's nowhere else i would want to live. it's still the land of opportunity and many freedoms. i think of it as growing pains and soon we will be united once again. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

i love how @bestwestern has so many convenient locations near all the top national parks in north america. from death valley to yosemite, banff to grand canyon, yellowstone to smoky mountains, and many many more...
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
which national park do you want to go to next?

Here in california, we don't get much colorful yellow leaves in the fall, but we do get beautiful yellow dying grass. 😜
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
if you live in an area where you get colorful fall leaves every year, it's probably not a big deal for you. but for me, having lived in cali for most of my life, it's always a treat. i guess it's how i feel about beaches since they're so close to me. i was lucky to see them fall foilage twice this season. i saw mostly just yellows, and not reds or oranges. so my goal next year is to shoot fall foilage somewhere on the east coast, either in canada or the states. who wants to join me? πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♂️

Did you celebrate halloween yesterday? i celebrated by netflix and chillin' with a #yayoikusama pumpkin. then i made a scary short movie on my ig story. can you believe that it's my first time acting?? i deserve an oscar for my compelling performance. πŸ†
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
every halloween, i spend $25 on candy but no one ever comes! one year, i decided not to buy candy and that is the only year kids came. πŸ˜‘ so now i buy it regardless. then when no one comes, i just throw it away since i don't eat candy. i guess i'll be throwing $25 away for the rest of my life or i guess i can move somewhere with a gate.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
p.s. i really miss singapore.

when i wake up for sunrise photos, i always make sure to eat a big breakfast so i have enough energy for a full day of adventures. @bestwestern offers a really nice complimentary breakfast starting at 6:30am. the yosemite gateway location even had a yogurt machine, waffle iron, fresh fruit and soy milk. 😊 #todaysbw #bestwestern #ad β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

Sorry for being an absentee iger in 2018. thank you so much for sticking around with me through this journey. πŸ™πŸ»

i went from updating daily to updating once a month this year. however, it wasn't due to a lack of trying. i would keep pushing it back and saying i will do it tomorrow. it became a source of anxiety and disappointment. finally, this week i was able to update three times, which is a great start. i'm definitely not trying to going back to updating daily. i'm aiming for 3-4 times a week.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
on the plus side, since i haven't been posting, i have a surplus of content and i can be super picky about what i post. i have some stuff that i'm very proud of and can't wait to share.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
p.s. i'm quite active on ig stories if you ever miss seeing my content. πŸ˜‰

Whenever i tell someone that i've never been to #yosemite, they are always surprised. i'm surprised myself since i visit a lot of parks in other states and countries. the ironic thing is that #yosemitenationalpark is in my home state. in fact, it's only about 4.5 hours away by car.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
thanks to @bestwestern, i finally visited the 5th most popular national park in the usa. their yosemite gateway location is conveniently located a short 25 min drive from the south entrance, making it a great place to stay for visiting the newly remodeled mariposa grove, valley and glacier road attractions. i had so much fun! i don't know why i waited so long to go. i want to go back already. #todaysbw #bestwestern #ad β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €

Have you ever been to a rooftop playground? the kids in copenhagen are so spoiled! 😜
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
even though i'm not a kid anymore, i'm still a kid at heart. and this rooftop playground is definitely a playground for both photographers and big kids. ever since i did that #puddlegram in singapore, i've been on the lookout to do more. β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
when i first got there early in the morning, there was no one there except for a few adults exercising. i really wanted a shot with a kid climbing on the triangular thing. so i waited, and waited but no kids came. since it was freezing, windy and cold, i decided to just go. then just as i was getting ready to leave, a family came along and i was finally able to get my shot! thank you random kid for being my model! you the real mvp! πŸ†πŸ€—

Would you drive 30+ miles on a bumpy, dirt road for this view? you already know my answer. 😜

i actually didn't have plans to come here since it was quite far away from the main areas of #glaciernationalpark. but when both the cashier at the local supermarket and your @airbnb host tell you it's their favorite lake, you go; no if, ands or buts.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
bowman lake is one of the lesser known lakes because of the aforementioned reasons. do i think it was worth the effort and drive? hell yeah! this lake was very secluded. we pretty much had the lake to ourselves. it was extremely quiet, serene and beautiful. i recommend going early because the parking is pretty limited and sometimes they close the entrance if it's full.

Have you ever gone hiking in the snow? β„οΈβ›„οΈπŸ—»
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
i definitely was not expecting to be hiking on 7 feet of snow in july, but i guess they don't call it #glaciernationalpark for nothing. there's only snow in the highest point of the park and the trailhead for this hike happened to be there.
β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β € β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €β €
the hike to hidden lake is one of the most popular hikes in the park because it's not that long or difficult. well, normally it's not but the snow made it a lot more strenuous. when it's not covered in snow, there's actually a boardwalk for most of the hike. when i got to the overlook, the lake was still mostly frozen so i didn't bother going down there. now l know why it's called hidden lake, it's hidden for like 10 months out of the year. πŸ™ˆ
