All Saints collaboration Noel | Anxiety

Posted on: 06 February 2017

Those pictures are taken from 2016, way before Christmas. I know, I haven't been posting anything since then. It is hard to explain, but here I am trying to explain why I haven't been active lately. 

In mid-2015, I realized that I have anxiety, which is not something I'm proud at. The very first time it hit me when I was driving back home from San Francisco to the east bay. It was awful, and I have to deal it on my own because I was driving back alone. My hands were shaking, and I sweat a lot. I decided to stop on the side of the freeway to let everything cool down for a bit. At that time, I wasn't sure what happened. After feeling a bit better, I decided to drive all the way home. I took some warm shower and decided to do some research. Finally, I found out that I have anxiety. 

2016 wasn't a good year for me. I know, some of you think that I'm a happy person, but behind that happiness, I'm terrified, stressed, and feel bad things on me. It isn't healthy, and I've been talking to some good friends of mine about it. Most of them gave me advised to see a counselor. This wasn't happening until early 2017. The reason why I don't like going to a counselor due to a bad experience when I was young. The case was getting worst, until 2017 I forced myself to see the school counselor. Now I feel much better, and I learn a lot from my counselor how to deal with anxiety, and how to face it. I have positive thoughts that this year will be a great year for me to start all over again.

Anyway, I have a huge thank to one of my good friend, Noel to have a chance to be my personal photographer in this photoshoot. We had a great time taking pictures in a gloomy, cloudy winter San Francisco. It was a simple look with Reckless Girls' sweater with simple black leggings. To spice those outfit, I combined a fancy Gucci bag and my favorite All Saints parka.

This year, my family and I celebrate Thanksgiving weekend. 
You know what I'm talking about right?
Yupe, from Thursday till Sunday!

On the day, we had dinner at my aunt's house. Not just beer turkey this time, but we also have steak, mashed potatoes, stuffings, garlic noodles, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, Hawaiian Cheesecake, and more.... Crazy right? I did not regret it, cause the food was awesome! Had some family game time too, we played monopoly (card version).

Friday, the cousins (the younger kids) lol, well not so young anymore. We woke up early to stretch and exercise our body at House of Air, in Presidio, San Francisco. So basically it is a trampoline house. It went great, until... I landed in a weird way, so I injured my right foot. But after we had a great Dim Sum for lunch.

On Saturday,  it was lady's night out with my aunts and my cousin. We went out to watch Moana, and had Pho for dinner. The weather was not friendly at all, it was pouring rain. 

Sunday was an interesting day. I had to meet-up with this cool local photographer, Chris. We decided to do a collaboration. Different concept, and style but we did great! The picture ended up great too. After the photo shoot, my two oldest cousins, my aunt, and I we ended up with small family dinner on Sunday.
