Late night cycling


Helloooo darkness !!! 

Lately,  instead of walking ... i am enjoying to ride on my little red bike ... 
i usually run for about 2 hours around city parks late at night.  

It's summer season and cycling at night is cooler than in day time.  
Besides... lately,  it's not scary or creepy to go on cycling at night  ... 
every night... all parks around the city are full of people playing Pokemon-Go!!!  
I hope Pokemon Go's popularity will still last longer ... 
so i can enjoy my cycling even late at night.

Shenandoah Cavern is an underground cave in Virginia. 

This natural wonder cave was gorgeous and interesting! You got to see for yourself. 

There was an elevator to get down to the caverns... it was about 220 feet according to our guide. 

In an hour adventure... i got the chance to see the different parts of the caverns and interesting shapes formations which is composed of minerals with water droplets mixture.  This formations took hundreds of years to form.

The temperature down the cave is cool ... It's about 54F or 12C the entire time. 

There are many unique formations ... and they are amazing!!!

 Castle

Rainbow room ...  reflections

 drapery

In addition to the caverns there are also other attractions to see in the same area.

Just for fun🎵

It's on my 3rd week adventure here in America!

I stayed in Las Vegas for almost a week but I did not try to play in any casino coz  i know i have no luck in gambles. 

Yesterday, my friends invited me to come with them in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.  There's a huge casino there named Sands. 
My friends said we need a membership card in order to play.  There's a $5 bonus in the card.... so i was forced to play to spend that $5 ... fortunately with that bonus alone,  seems i won some😉
Beginner's luck 😅

My own OBENTO^^

It's been a decade since the last time i made obento or lunch  box for myself. 
It so happened that i have work the whole day today in different places and i have no time to buy my lunch so i decided to bring my own obento.  

Yaaay ... the last time i remember making obento was when Sachan was in senior high school ...   
that means it's way back about 10 years ago.   


What a wonderful world!


I found some photos of my visit to other countries ... 
i tried to compile them in one vid but unfortunately Photo Grid only allowed 50 photos in a vid ...
I just used my smart phone on making this simple vid ... 

amazing smart phone ... they can do anything :P 
If i have more chance and time ... i would like to make a better vid thru movie maker appli.   

Oh well ... the adventures featured in this vid was really nostalgic ... priceless!

Thank you Lord for the unmerrited favors ... 
thank you for all the dreams, joy and memories xx
