    Halloween!!! The awesomest costumes ever.

    2011 - 10.31

    Sorry about going dark on the interwebs these last few months.  Shamin’s busy with school and getting into school, and I’ve just started my new job.

    We’ve got a lot of things going on besides that as well.  Recently, I just ran a 10k for the Race for the Rescues.  Shamin would have came, but she was supposed to go to SF until she severely sprained her ankle.

    More importantly, it’s Halloween.  The one time of the year, a girl can dress as skanky as ever and not be judged negatively by her peers.  This year, Shamin and I decided to make our costume.  Shamin is a veteran in costume-making… if you don’t believe me, check out her facebook profile pix.  She’s been a Smarty, an AIM buddylist, and many more.  Me? my best work was when I pulled out the white V-neck and audaciously colored shorts with a masquerade mask of my brother.  That’s the extent of my costume making.

    So it was a thrill to be working with someone so creative and talented… someone who can also cut in a straight line and print legibly.. unlike myself.  We’ve been working on this costume since Friday night in preparation of a party thrown by LMFAO and Quest Crew, and I have to say… we have a good shot of winning the costume contest! It’s freaking awesome!!!

    So what do these costumes look like? Stay tuned tomorrow night on our Facebook page… we’ll post it there! =)

    RLCBxDChu presents… | Impromptu Photography |

    2011 - 06.03

    Shamin and I have been blessed to have amazing photographers as our friends/mentors/role models. For each of us young padawan’s, there is a Yoda teaching us of the Force. I’ve been fortunate to have an amazing friend/photographer in Erich Chen as someone who taught me pretty much everything I know about photography. Shamin has her own in her “Twin,” David Chu.

    Shamin and DChu in the spotlight!

    2011 - 04.29


    Still a lot of busy-ness in our lives right now so we haven’t gotten around to posting a lot of pictures, but Shamin was able to team up with her “Twin” and epic photographer David Chu for yet another epic photo shoot.

    Inspired by Wong Fu Productions, DChu and Shamin picked up a pair of Nice Guy T-shirts and did a shoot out near San Pedro.  The result is GREATNESS, you can check out all of the pictures at DChu’s photoblog.

    Even bigger, Wong Fu Productions noticed the shoot and has featured it in a blogpostRead the rest of this entry »

    Epic Big Bear Cabin Trip! Day 3!

    2011 - 01.12

    A sense of sadness prevailed on the morning of the third day. It had been an amazing vacation, and the thought of returning to our normal lives just seemed.. so… depressing.  Nevertheless, we got up bright and early and had a big breakfast, began to clean up and took some group photos.

    During the group photo, and even in the days past, Jesse brought up the notion that jumping photo is an Asian thing to do.  I have kind of a mixed feeling about it, but Shamin says she’s seen other nationalities do it.  Nonetheless, we did a quick photoshoot (with some jump shots) in the backyard with the whole group before splitting up.

    Epic Big Bear Cabin Trip! Day 2!

    2011 - 01.12

    Our second day began at 7:30 in the morning.  The plan was I’d take anyone who need to rent to go rent by 8, and we would start boarding by 8:30, but even the best laid plans of mice and men often goes awry, and ours was no different.

    Shamin and I got up and began making breakfast.  Scrambled eggs with cheese, onions, bell peppers, tomatoes and mushroom; waffles; coffee and a variety of juice; and for some, Casey’s epically portioned and epically tasty curry.  By the time everyone was up and done with breakfast, however, it was already close to 9.  Those of us who had to rent didn’t quite make it to the slopes until close to 10 or 10:30ish.

    Epic Big Bear Cabin Trip! Day 1!

    2011 - 01.11

    Even though we’ve known each other before, it was snowboarding that actually got Shamin and I to start talking.  Around this time last year, Shamin had gone up to Mountain High to snowboard with a few of her friends. I was there with my brother and a few of my friends. I had seen Shamin get off a lift, and was convinced it was her. The only problem is that I’m always convinced I know somebody when I don’t. So, this time, I decided I wasn’t going to make a fool of myself and didn’t say hi.  The next day, after seeing Shamin’s Facebook status on how sore she was from snowboarding, I commented, saying I saw her the day before.  About a week or two later, we hung out for the first time… night time snowboarding.  Since the end of last snow season, we’ve been talking about putting together a cabin trip with a bunch of our friends. This is the product of our months of planning. Read the rest of this entry »

    Shamin’s first post

    2011 - 01.11

    Finally! :D

    I apologize, my internet has been horrible lately so I haven’t had the chance to post.  I would post some pictures, but I know Mike is working on the Big Bear ones…so we can just wait to see those :) .

    Like he’s mentioned before, this site will be a compilation of our adventures (we hope to be taking many pictures to illustrate the adventures).  However, I do warn you that they will be VERY out of order.

    However, just so that I leave a mark on this site…this is currently one of my favorite pictures :

    Mike & his monkeys.

    Adorable huh? :) It will serve as a preview to our Disneyland shoot.  Those photos will be posted soon!  Thanks for the patience!

    Upcoming adventures!

    2010 - 12.22

    January is looking like a pretty big month for me and Shamin.

    Back in late October, there was a special deal for Southwest Airlines. Without a destination in mind, we just picked a random spot on the map.

    Portland, Oregon. Read the rest of this entry »

    Pasadena Night Shoot

    2010 - 12.15

    When Shamin and I first started talking, we discovered that we both enjoyed photography.  Not that we were going to be professional photographers by any means, but we both really enjoyed taking photos.  It wasn’t long before we realized that we had to embark on epic photo adventures. But there was only one problem: We both work 9 to 5′s.  Well, I worked 9 to 5, and Shamin had the 8 to 4:40 schedule.  So it became apparent that most of our photo adventures were going to be on the weeknights or the weekends.
