Spring is blooming now…

Written by CooKies™ on. Posted in Photography

2nd of April, Saturday. The weather today is superb nice. Spring is coming on its way in the month of April.

This is why I decided to go to the Waterfront Park again to witness the beauty of the Spring. 😉 I’d been there during the Winter, but now the Spring really gave me a big surprise. Waterfront Park is totally a different scenery now. Cheery Blossoms are blooming along the park. Taking a stroll there was really an enjoyment. Some more the Saturday Market is just beside it, you can ‘shop’ the market for some interesting stuff there.

四月二日,星期六。今天的天氣實在太好了,天空一片晴朗,可能是要迎接春天的到來吧。這也是為何我決定再次去到波特蘭的河邊公園,去欣賞春天的景色。上次在冬天的時候,我已經去過一次了,這次的春天果然讓我大開眼界。那裡的景色和上次截然不同,處處開滿了粉紅色的櫻花,景色實在怡人。在那裡一邊散步,一邊賞花,真的很不錯。過後,還可以去旁邊的“星期六巴殺”(其實星期日也有開)逛逛,果然是週末悠閒的好去處。:)

After strolling off the Waterfront Park, my Taiwan colleague suggested to visit the Tulips farm although the news said that the Tulips are not fully blooming yet. Well, since we got no where to go, we proceeded with the plan. The Tulips farm will hold an annual Tulip Fest around the end of March until May. I heard that normally there’ll be large crowd flooding the farm when the Tulips are fully bloom. Now only around 5% of the Tulips are blooming, so the farm was not crowded at all, which is good for us indeed. 😛 Well, the weather was really good, and the sun was too bright, until it was hard for me to take a good photo there because of too much light exposure. Really need to research and learn how to take good picture under such condition. 😛 In fact, after this visit, we decided to come back again in the end of April to experience how amazing will it be when the flowers are fully blooming.

在公園和巴殺逛完後,我那位台灣的同事就提議,直接去參觀那鬱金香花園。話說那花園每年三月尾到五月都會舉辦一場盛大的鬱金香花節,那裡的鬱金香在春天開起來的時候,可是一項奇景,所以每年都會有很多人慕名拜訪。但是今天因為只有大約五巴仙的鬱金香開花,所以還沒什麼人潮。不過今天的天氣實在太好了,陽光也太過充足,導致要拍張好照片也很難,因為亮度太高,很難搞。看來還要多多去研究和學習才行,不然下次再來的時候,如果沒能拍到好照片就真的很遺憾了。

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!" :)
