I'm still the same person but with new priorities. Always learning and improving to be the best version of myself.

As uncomfortable as it is to be in front of the camera, I'd like to share this self-portrait of me for a change. Apologies if I wasn't able to control my laughter as this was being taken. Oh, and don't mind my vampire teeth. I don't thirst for blood anymore. Ha!

And you know what the good thing about being part Asian is that we don't look our age (so don't bother asking). But if you must know, I'm already 150 years young. Not to mention I turned a year older yesterday so do the math. #NoShame #MakePortraits

TGIF! I finally have time for my books after a full workweek.

Oh and did I mention I'm another year older today this 4th of July? Thanks again to all the birthday greetings and wonderful surprises! This has been the best year so far.

A well-spent day brings happy sleep, although sometimes I can't sleep because I'm too inspired conceptualizing the next photo I have in mind. Do you know what I mean?

Busy but the kind that makes you feel accomplished. I'm in a good place right now. I have the big guy upstairs to thank!

Quoting Steve Jobs: "Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do."

Hard work separates the talented from the successful. Do what makes you happy and do it with passion.

What are you passionate about besides photography?

"When one door closes, another opens. Also, you can open the closed door. That's how doors work. How do you know so little about doors?" Funny, right?

Make your own luck, be aware so that you can recognize opportunities when they come along. Happy midweek IG pals!

Learn not to always be one with the crowd -- like this sunflower. Sometimes it's good to distant yourself from others. Why try to fit in when you're a standout. There's no need to suppress your individuality for the sake of conformity.

That's what my late dad used to say. Thanks dad for all your invaluable advice and shared wisdom. Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!

“Whether he is an artist or not, the photographer is a joyous sensualist, for the simple reason that the eye traffics in feelings, not in thoughts.” -Walker Evans
