One day, CooKies received an assignment to make the best peanut butter in the world. Hence, he decided to runaway to this place: Hillsboro, OREGON in US, for an estimated of 365days to complete his assignment. There are a lot of tough nuts over there, but he believes that: "Tough nuts always make the best peanut butter!" :)

GPTR 2012

Written by CooKies™. Posted in Work Related

22nd August, Wednesday. Today we have our annual big event here: GPTR (Great Place to Run)! Again, I signed up for the 5K run like last year. However, due to having cold and not yet fully recover, I can’t really participate in the run. 🙁 So, instead of doing the run, I basically just go there for a walk and take some photos.

八月二十二日,星期三。今天是我们公司一年一度的大型活动:五公里和十公里的跑步比赛!和去年去年一样,我今年也参加了这项的活动,只可惜我这几天不小心病了,伤风还没完全康复,所以就没有去跟大队一起跑。今年我就只有乖乖的在那里走走和拍拍照。

Chasing Milky Way

Nice angle with milky way on top, but too bad not enough range17th of August, Friday. Tonight after having dinner with my boss from Penang, I decided to go Trillium Lake for another try of night photography. 🙂 Since my last visit, I always wanted to do more night photography, especially with milky way. So, without thinking twice, I packed my stuff and headed there straight away!

八月十七日,星期五。今晚和老板吃完晚餐后,就匆忙收拾好装备,启程前往延龄湖去了。自从上次拍星空的经验以后,就一直很想再尝试,尤其是拍银河系!所以,今天这么美好的天气,当然就没想那么多,直接去了。现在这里是夏天,所以就算是半夜十二点了,也还不会很冷。今晚的天空也非常清澈,漫天的星星,真的很美。我本来还以为只有我一个人会这么疯狂在这里拍摄,但是几分钟后就看到有一辆车驶进来,另一个男的也同样在这里拍摄夜空。看来夏天到了,拍夜空的人也特别多,哈哈。和他搭讪了过后才知道原来有很多地方可以拍摄夜空,而他也只是逗留了半个小时左右就去了另一个地方。看来下次我也应该要去其他地方试一试了。;)

I felt ‘Penang’ here…

Too hot for us!16th August, 2012. Thursday. I’ve been here in Oregon for a year and 9 months. But these whole week is a remarkable one. Why? Because just today, our temperature hits 97Fahrenheit (around 36 celsius)!

A Night in Trillium Lake

Written by CooKies™. Posted in Photography

13th of July, Friday. After last week’s experience on shooting stars, tonight I decided to go somewhere far away from city: Trillium Lake. 🙂 It’s almost a 2hour drive from my house, but since the weather is so nice, I should be able to get some good shots there.

七月十三日,星期五。自從上次在家附近拍過星空以後,我就決定要到這延齡湖試一試了。這地方離城市蠻遠的,今晚的天氣不錯,應該可以有不錯的收穫吧。

Starry Starry Night

6th of July, Friday. Feeling fresh even though it’s late night. In fact I was planning for a midnight stars shooting around Hillsboro. I never did this before. But just wanted to give it a try. This is what I got after standing for an hour in the midnight at some ‘unknown’ location around Old Cornelius Pass Road in Hillsboro. 🙂
