Stanley Park Photo walk - Part 1 (Macro Edition)

I was invited to a photo walk yesterday at Stanley Park! I've never been to a photo walk before with other photographers so I felt inexperienced. We managed to walk for 4.5 hours around most of the park and I was able to visit places that I did not know existed in Vancouver. The weather was warm but the sky was hazy at the beginning which was not ideal. I'm very happy it decided to clear up a little bit towards the end so  the "sunset light" could shine through the trees. Below are the macro shots I took during the walk. The rest of the photos will be uploaded soon. :)


these flowers remind me of some type of cell 


the center of these flowers are either yellow or white. 




The composition for all these turned out very similar! :( I was so focused on trying to focus I didn't pay attention to anything else. I'm still practicing but I think I have improved from last time.

Cooking Day! - Naan, Palak Paneer, and Shahi Paneer















My friends and I tried to make Indian dishes! This wouldn't have been a feat I could accomplish myself so I'm glad we had an expert in the group. We absolutely did not plan before this cooking day so all the groceries the day of and I kept notes on the different type of spices we were using.

Unfortunately for me, A is so used to making these foods she did not follow a recipe and I was running back and forth from the kitchen and table to write down what we were doing. Looking at my messy notes now, it does not seem like they are going to be helpful for the future, hahaha.

Nevertheless, the food we made was delicious! So glad I got to learn about new (to me) foods.

High Tea and Macarons



Without school, my life has been full of eating. My friends and I have never tried "Afternoon Tea Services" before and decided to visit the Urban Tea Merchant. Each item on the trays were well made and yummy. It was a really nice treat. After that, we decided to go to Soirette for macarons. They are my favorite in Vancouver!

The name "sojoo" roots from "this is so Joany". Somehow in my convoluted thoughts, the name makes sense. On this blog you will find a collection of photos from my every day life. Hope you enjoy and stay for a little while.
