Irvine, Where I Called It My....Second Home?

As an international student here in the United States,
Certainly, I've been away from home for so long, maybe too long,
7 years, I can't even belive myself,
Don't get me wrong, I ain't a slacker in college ( > _.< )"
4 years undergrad, 1.5 year job training,
And now my MBA program, which will end this December.

Irvine, this charming city in Orance County, California,
The place where I spent years - learning, growing, and maturing (hopefully) - has gradually becoming my second home,
There is a relunctancy in me to say good-bye after graduation,
Well, life is full of choices,
At least I can try my best making decisions that will leave no regrets in the future yep?

One of the minor things that I can do now, is making/recording memories of Irvine with pictures,
And here are some photos around the lake area druing early night hours.

The person on my right was tossing bread crumbs, so there he went.... -

What a peaceful place -

I'll try to take more pictures of my "second home" when I get a chance,
Making memories bit by bit.


  1. Great pictures! Which lake is it? It doesn't look like one of the Woodbridge lakes...

  2. To jumpcut~
    This is the one between Alton and Barranca, close to Arirang BBQ place, across the street from Ruby's! (Thank you for the comment, glad you like it!)

  3. So pretty! Did you get the different sunset colors all in one day or did you go during different times?

    Oh, I also clicked on one link (your Rasa Malaysia restaurant one) and for some reason my computer says it has problems. Google says you should use their Webmaster tools to fix it possibly (they will review the website). Below is what they said when I clicked on why your website had issue:

    No, this site has not hosted malicious software over the past 90 days.

    How did this happen?

    In some cases, third parties can add malicious code to legitimate sites, which would cause us to show the warning message.

  4. To Eat Travel Eat~
    Wow thank you so much, I'll look into that when I'm back from my trip (goiong to Yosemite for 3 days). PS. I was at the lake for about an hour!
