日常生活點滴

Much Love Phoenix

The blueprint of Much Love Crew’s dream should not be limited to a single city, ethnicity, or lifestyle; it should be diverse, able to grow organically and expand. So, here I am, announcing the official launch of Much Love Phoenix.

21/90 Home Cook Challenge

In my childhood memories, my mom always took care of our family by cooking every day. I remember those mornings with shredded sweet potato congee with a sunny-side-up egg, and pickled vegetables. Mom used to pack our lunches too, which we’d steam at school. And when evening rolled around, she’d whip up multiple home-cooked dishes in the blink of an eye.

BYC 2023 – Resilience

BYC (Buddhist Youth Camp) is a summer Buddhist camp organized by the Jade Buddha Temple in Houston. Thanks to my parents’ persuasion, I participated in their first-ever youth camp in 1993 before starting college.

Zero Distance Project 01 :: Jenny

The morning after my birthday last November, I embarked on a visit to Jenny, the eldest sister of the Yang family, marking the beginning of an extraordinary project called Zero Distance. While it may seem like a mere task-oriented endeavor, its true purpose was to rekindle connections and continue the bonds with friends and acquaintances who once held a significant place in my life.

Visiting SAFE in Austin!

Ahboga had told me about this cool place called SAFE in Austin. It’s a truly heartwarming story of a family with big, big hearts who saves abandoned and often disabled animals, and then when they are ready, pairs them with humans often with special needs themselves. What ends up happening is pure magic, healing in the way that only unconditional love can.

Happy New Year 2023!!

It’s the first day of a brand new year. Much Love Crew are making slow progress. REALLY SLOW progress.. But, I’ve always told my partners, our priority is our kids and family. As long as our kids grow and we keep on living, we are making good progress.

Coco’s Cafe X Yellow

I recommended Yellow to Coco’s Cafe to help them paint in front of the store, because I think his style is too cute and eye-catching!! Just like his personality and appearance, he has always been bold in using bright colors to paint works that are full of joy and positive energy!

Austin Public Library – an Open Love Letter

I know that it might seem out of place to gush about a library here at Much Love Crew. We talk a lot about families, kids, and spreading love, and I can’t think of a more welcoming place for families.

Day One (of being a father)

第一天(成為人父) You would be teenager by now. 13 years, I didn’t get to tell you the story about how you survived. But, I know one day, we are going to meet again in Heaven and I will tell you the story about how you changed my life.

My Haircut Journey, Part 2

It’s just hair, isn’t it? So it was surprising that so many thoughts and emotions played out before, during, and after I got my once-in-a-lifetime haircut.

Rwanda Honey Process Karambi

Clean honeyed sweetness and silky mouthfeel give way to accent notes of honey comb, raspberry, fresh fig, Assam tea, chocolate buttercream, cocoa butter, and vanilla cream soda. City to Full City. Good for espresso.

Fast Forward

快轉。 2017 was the first time I heard the word “Derealization” from a friend. Derealization (or Depersonalization) disorder refers to the experience of feeling detached from, and as if one is an outside observer of, one’s surroundings.

My Haircut Journey, Part 1

What is our relationship to hair? Is it a vehicle for self-expression? Is it power? Is it beauty? Is it comfort? Is it fashion?

Honduras Dry Process Sabillon Parainema

Aromatic cup, notes of rustic dried fruits like slab apricot and blueberry, ginseng tea with honey, a fruited wine spritzer hint, maraschino cherry cordials, and a little earth-toned bittersweetness in the backend.

How I Met Your Coffee? Part 2

重新認識咖啡的浪漫史 II。 In the early days of Re-store (the thrift store I ran back in Taiwan), many people thought that we were a coffee shop. But because I did not drink coffee back then, I was not looking to sell it. Until I met “Ze Coffee”.

BYC 2022 : Rekindle – A Rebirth of Brilliance

BYC is an extraordinary summer camp that truly works its magic on everyone who experiences it. It has this inexplicable charm that compelled me to return every summer during my youth. For me, returning after twenty years with my own children was an absolute delight. I witnessed their hearts fill with the same wonder and joy that I had felt during my youth.

Hike & Pick #003 {Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park round 2}

邊走邊撿第三遊{核桃溪都會公園第二回} Decided to take girls and Chance to Walnut Creek Park at the very last minute, since Chance missed it last time.  There is an unleashed area for dogs at this park, so it’s perfect for Chance to go crazy and mingle with other local dogs.

ONE YEAR back in Texas.

回德州一年了。Exactly one year ago, during the time of chaos around the world, we moved from Taiwan to Austin.  A giant step for my family and me, we left the people we love and everything that we were familiar with and stepped into the unknown.

Hike & Pick #002 {Covert Park at Mt. Bonnell}

邊走邊撿第二遊{邦耐爾山樹叢公園} Mt. Bonnell, also known as Covert Park, has been a popular tourist destination since the 1850s.  The mount provides a vista for viewing the city of Austin, Lake Austin, and the surrounding hills.  The mount is often described as the highest point in Austin, with the elevation at its peak about 775 feet.

Hike & Pick #001 {Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park}

邊走邊撿第一遊{核桃溪都會公園} Walnut Creek Metropolitan Park is a trail near where we live.  I never knew we got a beautiful park just 8 minutes away from our house.  It got hiking and biking trails, many off leash trails for the dogs, and beautiful scenery by the creek area.
