One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Photography is another passion of mine. I believe every picture has an intention behind it. I want to capture and share the moment/intention to viewers using still images.

Whenever I go to museums, musicals, or dance performance, I am always impressed with their creativity and talents - using arts or body movement to express themselves with the audience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Share: Language (English and Cantonese), Culture (Hong Kong), and Salsa Dancing

Learn: New languages (Mandarin, Spanish, etc.) and cultures, and anything I don't know.
