Instant Noodles Breakfast @ Kyoto
It was yet another instant noodles breakfast. I had tonkotsu ramen while my sis went for kitsune udon, which is our travel theme today because we’re visiting Fushimi Inari Taisha later on and it has everything to do with kitsune udon. Hehe Btw, kitsune means fox in Japan.

Tsk, my tonkotsu ramen was REALLY salty. Arghh!

Photobook Of Chester ❤️

After Chester’s passing, I wanted to make a special photobook dedicated to him. A photobook that chronology his time with us, from his gotcha day in 2003 to his very last day with us in 2015. When I make this plan into motion, I knew this will be really my final goodbye… as in letting go. I’ll still love him and miss him no matter what.

Doing this photobook was a bittersweet process. Of course I cried while choosing and looking back at the thousands of photos, especially the last year. Do I have to re-live those last painful moments? Yes, I need to in order to grow up. I have toughen up a lot since then.

Without further ado, may I present you the photobook of my golden angel, Chester… just a sneak peak of the 80 pages album with nearly 600 photos.

Front Cover of Chester Photobook
A golden with a golden heart. I choose this photo as the front cover of the album. It’s one of my very favorites. It’s on the canvas too. This photo was taken few days after his birthday in 2013 using Samsung S3.
