Midnight Sun Run 2011

I had such a great time last night running the 10K Midnight Sun Run. I did the race for 59 minutes and some seconds. There were at least 3500 registered runners and walkers and I've seen a lot of people that I have not seen for a long time but most of them are just cheering on the side of the road and having a good time. It was a great and fun night and the weather was awesome too.

Happy Fathers Day!

I'm so proud of you Father
for you have a heart like no other
always gave a lending hand
even for the people who did you harm
You were so loving and forgiving
so quite and didn't say a thing
but you were counting my wrong doing
one two three if I keep making them I get the whipping

I tried to get my way 
for I know you love me and I'm the youngest baby
but you were tough on me
for you only wanted me to better someday

You were a preacher, adviser, singer, and a cook
I may not have inherit any of those
but I'm glad you were an adventurer
for you have open my eyes and not afraid to explore what's out there

You were a father not only for your children
but for every one who needs a home and a loving care
for I have remember
even an older had respected you like their own father

 I am sad for I won't see you any longer
but I know you are with God the Father
"Well done my son, job well done"
 for I'm sure that's what he greeted you when you arrived there
I admire your love and passion for Christ
for so many lives you've care and touched
Your legacy will live on forever
I'm so proud for you are my Father

Wondering in Bellingham with Prof. Stephen Cysewski

It was an awesome experience and a pleasure to wonder around Bellingham, Washington with my Photography Professor, from Fairbanks Alaska, Stephen Cysewski. If any of you are interested to know and learn about Steve and his wonderful work in photography here's the link Stephen Cysewski.

Here are some of the pictures I've taken using my Sony dslr A100.

Gone Missing

I am so upset and sad that we lost Mr. Kong in Dawson Creek, British Columbia. We spent the night at the Mile 0 RV campground. The thing is, anywhere we go, Mr Kong wonders around but he always comes back. He would whine at the door and won't stop until we let him in. Well, this time he didn't come back or maybe couldn't come back. We look and look for him and waited for few hours but he is no where to be found. He might have gotten into someones RV and got locked in or something.
Mr. Kong has microchip so if someone  ever turn him in to the found or shelter, they will know who he belongs to. I just hope that he is being feed. I miss him so.

We walked the dogs in the park and Mr. Kong was walking with us too

Tired walking and wondering around
