Boston, MA

My first time in the East Coast! I only stayed in Boston because this trip was for work.
I took a bunch of photos and here are a few. :)


Left: View from Boston Common & Public Garden
Right: Boston Common Frog Pond


I ate none of the above. :(
Just thought the food was super photogenic and cute.


Left: Trinity church in the back.
Right: Cute flowers :)


I notice floor patterns and designs sometimes.


Shot these while walking to Longfellow bridge.



Last but not least, here are some pictures of the premium floor corner suite I stayed in.
Excuse the low-lighting bad quality~


Right when you enter, there is this huge and very unnecessary conference table.


Living room area.


Another view of the living room area.


A view from one of the four large windows in my suite.
I am in a corner room on the highest floor.


My messy king bed hehe.


Spacious right?? I was definitely not expecting my suite to be this big haha.
Besides the hot, humid weather and morning traffic, Boston is alright. :)

I just want you to be happy

Last week I did something very unlike me. My friend has been going through a hard time but doesn't want to tell me anything about it (and I understand because it is his nature). I feel distant from him because he chooses not to be open with me even though we used to consider each other as close friends. Some questionable events happened in our friendship recently and I don't know if we look at each other the same now. Anyway, it was his birthday and last week and I wanted to do something nice for him. I bought a gift for him last Christmas but never had the chance to give it to him because bad timing, so I thought it would be perfect to give it to him for his birthday. I packaged the gift along with a handwritten note inside a priority mailing box I took from the post office, wrote his name really big on the box and dropped it off at his front door the night before. I didn't feel the need to tell anyone about the situation or the contents of the package because it's really just between me and him. I didn't even expect him to respond to me but he did end up sending me a text saying how he really appreciated it. It made me really happy knowing that I made him happy and that he was smiling on the other end. :)

1 Samuel 16:7b

"The LORD does not look at the things people look at.
People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."

This is a good verse.
