A Year in Review: 2020

2020 was a rollercoaster this year. With me starting the year exploring the southern parts of Japan, to ending the year feeling burnt-out at home. And yes, COVID happened. But COVID didn’t stop me from trying to enjoy the best of it.

Here’s some of my highlights of this year.


Starting New Years in Tokyo with a goal to take the train slowly to Hiroshima. Some photos I will upload here. Overall the trip was… uh… a lot of fighting. Yet, however much we fought and hated each other, it always worked out in the end.

Happy year of the rat~ 🐭


It was a pretty eventful month of food. (haha…) And bringing my cats back home.


Tried out Verve Coffee for the first time. I really liked it! Although, I still think Blue Bottle is my favorite.


Stayed at home mainly. Got into the original Yugioh manga. Why does Dark Magician look like he’s always running late to a meeting?


First time picking cherries. They were crunchy, delicious, and fresh.

I also tried making Dalgona coffee.


Happy birthday to me, hehe.


Went out to view Comet NEOWISE.


Pretty uneventful from what I recall. I might have been watching 三生三世十里桃花…


Purchased a new car~~~


Birthday celebration of my good friend. I also ate a lot of hot pot. 😋

And on Halloween, I visited Santa Cruz. No pictures to upload since they aren’t the best I took.


Did a wine tasting.

Drove to visit my friend in Washington. Delicious Thanksgiving dinner at their place.


Reached the end of the year already…

I did a lot of cooking this month. Baked some bread. Visited my friend’s house for a Christmas dinner. The last dinner of the year was homemade hot pot.

Overall, a good year, but it also was one of my least productive ones. Not sure if that is a good or bad thing? I’m looking forward to my growth in 2021.
