istanbul from the top of sapphire. if over priced elevator rides to the 54th floor is your thing, then you will love the observatory on that building.

bye ohh bio

ohh biology, how happy it makes me that i will never have to take another exam about prokaryotes/bipedalism/meiosis ever in my life again. it was a good two years, but too much, way too much. goodbye trusty biology textbook. you will (rarely) be missed.


kuruçeşme and the bosphorus. it's been pretty gloomy the past two days. and two days before that was hot. why is the weather ever-changing?

definitely craving dumplings. especially the ones from DinTaiFung.could you imagine having a job consisting of perfectly pinching 18 folds to make xiaolongbao's all day? looks painful. and neck cramping.
