Photos...

Ugh, why is my internet connection so slow... Took forever to upload just two albums onto Facebook, and that's just the stuff from Taipei. >_< Plus, the flash version of the uploader up and quit on me. Bleh.

Anyway... some pics that I'm not going to post to FB.

China 2010 Index

Photos are up on Facebook, opened to public (there's no images of me in there anyway and I was careful not to mention names). I've put in captions to the albums and photos as much as I can. Facebook does resize the images that are larger than normal, so if anyone needs a better quality copy of a photo (and assuming I've kept a better quality image), let me know and I'll pass it on by email.

Spring!

Here's our front yard, after much reworking. (I footed the bill for the plants to avoid having to actually do the work planting them. :P) It looks especially nice due to the long extended rainy season we've been having over here.

Almost there!

pics from last night )

This morning, finally got the desk all finished and my junk sorted into the drawers/shelves. Am now posting from my desktop PC. ^_^

Furniture stuff still on the list to get/do:
- Have one more bookshelf to put up. Need to make a run to Lowes
- New mattress
- Need a trash can for the room. Also a recycling bin, maybe
- Need more file folders for the cabinet
- Laundry bag holder...thing, since I don't want to keep running downstairs to drop off dirty laundry every time.
- Need to decide what goes in between the shelves at the back wall... CD-rack? Small futon couch? Bean bag? Table? Low cabinet? Suggestions welcome...
- Given the larger desk surface, I'm pondering whether to go for a dual monitor setup. (Yes this is just an excuse to get a larger monitor *cough*)
- Room freshener. Apparently the scent of anything that gets cooked in the kitchen drifts up the stairway and smack dab into the bedrooms. -_-

San Diego - Seaworld (backdated)

Seaworld is like Marine world, in that there are shows with the animals performing tricks at set times, and there are a few water rides. I didn't do any of the rides since I can get that at Great America. I did attend the shows for the dolphins, seals, and orca and took some videos of the show segments.

Aside from the shows there's also a few aquariums, which was difficult to take pictures in as well due to the dark lighting and the fact that digital cameras can't seem to focus very well through glass onto small objects.

Here are the ones I was able to get pics of: )

San Diego - Zoo (backdated)

We were able to get to the zoo at about 1 PM and stayed until it closed at 5. Unfortunately, during the last two hours, a lot of the animals (mostly the mammals) all went to sleep, so it was difficult if not impossible to get pictures of some of them (like the polar bears, the grizzly, the red panda, etc.)

I did however get an inordinate number of monkey photos, largely cuz we got lost around the area of the monkey trails and spent maybe an hour getting back on track. -_-

Anyway, the photos... )

San Diego - WAP (backdated)

Friday morning we visited the San Diego Wild Animal Park. Due to constraints on time (we also planned to hit the zoo in the afternoon), distance, and energy, we didn't do the Into Africa Tour, which is retrospect is kind of sucked. We did get to see the rest of the exhibits that we could walk to however.

Some photos I took: )
