the Philadelphia Museum of Art

A while back, I went to Philadelphia on a wonderful Sunday with my boyfriend and his family. We decided to go because it’s actually pay what you want the first Sunday of every month for the Philadelphia Art Museum.

We first stopped by this cute Italian restaurant called Serafina. The streets nearby were so adorable and so cute! (as you can see from the pictures below :))  The food was also very delicious though a bit expensive, in my opinion. I got the Tagliolini Al Salmone with everyone else getting other types of pasta with a shared appetizer of kalamari and Carpaccio di Tonno (fresh tuna and spinach).


aside from the sports bar sign, look at all these cute little bushes in front of this tea shop!

the streets right outside, lots of people and cars, but such bright buildings!

We then went to the Philadelphia Art museum. We didn’t have that much time there as we ate lunch for too long and got there late, so we quickly started with the modern and contemporary art and barely had time to look but a glimpse at some of the other exhibits. I would definitely recommend going here earlier in the day and taking the time to look through all the exhibits. It’s definitely a worthwhile experience!

Spring Break: Philadelphia

I decided to head to Philly with my mother over Spring Break  because we hadn’t actually gone together before. It was a quick day trip, but we did manage to go scout out some of the typical hits – Chinatown, dim sum, City Hall, etc. It was a fun trip and great bonding experience with my mother – hopefully, when I go back next, I’ll have more stories and pictures to share 🙂

Vancouver Flowers

Long time no post…but I have not forgotten. One of my 2016 New Year’s Resolutions is to be better about blogging and exploring my interests, one of which is photography! I have been trying to be better at using Photoshop, so look forward to more high quality posts 🙂

I took these flower pictures when I went to Vancouver. My family and I went to the Butchart Gardens, known for their roses and other types of hybrid flowers.
