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!" :)

July with Lavenders again

Personally love this shot4th of July, Wednesday. Finally a holiday for us! With no doubt, I took this opportunity to visit the farms and lakes around Oregon again. This time I visited the Lavender Farm in Hood River. That was around 1 hour 45 mins drive from Hillsboro. The view there was awesome due to the great sunny weather. Love the colors there! 🙂

七月四日,星期三。今天是難得的美國公共假期,終於可以鬆一鬆,到附近的花園和湖邊遊覽一番。今天我去了兩個地方,第一個就是位於胡德河附近的薰衣草花園。七月正是薰衣草盛放的時候,那裡的花真的讓人目不暇給。天氣超好的,配搭著花園裡不同顏色的花朵,還有後邊清晰可見的胡德山,整個景觀真的很漂亮。:)

The Most Unique Road…

Rowena Crest30th of June, Saturday. Today’s weather is cloudy, but still I wanted to relax myself a bit, so I visited this scenic state park of Oregon: Rowena Crest. It is actually the upper portion of Mayer State Park. From there you can see the scenic Columbia River Gorge as well. A very nice place to stroll around.

I also took the McCall Point Trail, hike like 2-3miles up the hill. I actually expecting to see some beautiful wild flowers along the trail, but too bad I was too late. The blooming season is over. 🙁 Only some purple flowers can be seen.

22th of April, Sunday. This is the day, that we’re going to start our journey, yes, I called it Journey of Wonders. Why? Because we’re going to witness a lot of wonderful and amazing scenery along our journey. 🙂 Well, in fact, due to National Park Week, I sort of planned this trip in 2 days. 😛

四月二十二日,星期日。今天就是我們開始我們接下來十天“奇跡旅程”的第一天。由於從這個星期開始是美國的國家公園週,所有國家公園都將開放,完全不收費,所以我就匆忙地策劃了這十天的旅程。

My First Ever NBA…

11th of April, Wednesday. Tonight I finally got a chance to watch my first ever NBA match: Portland Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors! 🙂 I got the free tickets from my company’s GPTW events. Anyway, this is my first NBA live match @ Portland, Rose Garden Arena. Well, I am not really a NBA fans, but watching live match was completely different than watching on TV. You got to ‘feel’ the crowds, the shouts, and not to forget those funny ‘supporting’ clips that they put on the LED panel whenever the host team scored. It was a good match though, because everyone got free ‘Chalupas‘ from TacoBell as long as Blazers scored over 100 points. 🙂 GG!
