A Quote Today

I came across to a line by Warren Buffett today -- risk comes from not knowing what you are doing.

A Bit of Exhaustion

Sometimes you get home and feel exhausted. Even though you see the ones you love who are waiting for you to come home and they make the food you like to eat, what you want to do is not talk, be quiet, do nothing, and plan to go to sleep till the next morning.

I believe you have been there like this before. Perhaps you want to turn on the music, or turn on the TV, or read a bit, or do something you personally prefer to do. Whatever it is, I know you just want to cheer yourself up and recharge yourself to the full capacity of energy. Then you can continue to do what you like to do, talk to someone who you love, continue to work on something you want to succeed in, and go somewhere you are passionate about going.

Yeah! Just a little bit of exhaustion, we all have been there experiencing it.
Eat a light meal,
take a hot shower,
have a good night sleep.
Let's hope for a energetic day tomorrow!

Florida Trip - Day 5

On the last day of our Florida trip, we took Greyhound bus from Key West back to Miami via the
Overseas Highway (US 1). And from Miami, we took a flight back to NYC.

It was a fun trip and I spent treasure times with my girlfriends throughout the journey. Not only did the trip deepen the friendship among three of us as we shared our personal stories and experience with each other along the way, but also it developed my leadership skill as I led the way and made sure everyone was happy and got what they expected from the trip.

I hope I will go back to Miami and Key West in the future to explore these wonderful places even more.

Florida Trip - Day 4: Key West

We were just 90 miles to Cuba!

We decided the 4th day in Key West to be a fun play day. And we picked 2 water activities to do during the day time. The first one was parasailing. We took the 9AM hotel shuttle bus and arrived in downtown around 9:20AM. After we took off, we took a short walk to the harbor and waited for the 10AM boat to take us out to parasail.
Although you may be afraid of the height up in the sky, however, parasailing is highly recommended if you really want to enjoy the view above the sea and the chill with the breeze over the sea. The crew staff would give you a life jacket just in case and you would be fine even if you drop into the water and cannot swim. The captain would change the speed of the boat which drags the parachute from time to time so that the parachute will go up and down constantly. Trust me, this is really fun!

We were high up in the sky!

When the parasailing was done, we treated ourselves a big brunch! 

Crab cake benedicts

The restaurant we had our brunch is called Bagatelle on the Duval Street. It is highly recommended!

In the afternoon, we sailed on the boat and got into the sea again to snorkel!

Key West is also well known by its breathtaking sunset. 

 On the last night we were in Key West, we picked a seafood restaurant called Half Shell Raw Bar. And it is highly recommended!!!

As we finished the 4th day of our trip, we looked forward to take a bus going back to Miami via the Overseas Highway - US Highway 1.

A Nice Friday Noon at Bryant Park, NYC

Happy Friday!

In case you haven't noticed just because it is still a bit cold in NYC in the morning or at night, spring is here! We have been waiting for it for so long.

I was feeling tired this morning due to hard work for a week. However, when I passed Bryant Park at noon, the nice weather and the crowd made me feel refreshed and energetic!

If you feel tired or lazy, please come out in the sun and infuse yourself with energy from the solar system.

If you feel lonely or depressed, please come out to the city and the nice sunshine and pleasant breeze would make you feel so hopeful.

If you feel sad or blue, please come out to the park and look at the people. The happiness reflected on their faces is so contagious.

Wish you have a great weekend!
