Parents’ Wedding Anniversary

My parents are celebrating their wedding anniversary this week so I took the liberty of fixing one of their printed photos. This is their honeymoon picture which I removed some noise from. I also desaturated the photo which developed into a much cleaner picture!

Happy anniversary, Mom and Dad! I love you.




Jade +1

35 anniversary

Today, my parents celebrate their 36th wedding anniversary! They’re testament to the Zane Grey quote:

Love grows more tremendously full, swift, poignant, as the years multiply.


I titled this post Jade +1 since my folks are +1 year on top of a 35-year wedding anniversary a.k.a. Jade Anniversary

R.I.P. Dr. Emoto


Alternative Medicine Doctor, author and entrepreneur Dr. Masaru Emoto died peacefully in his sleep this past thursday as mentioned on his official Facebook page.

He used to say  “Life is LOVE which is a gift from God and parents, and DEATH is gratitude for going to a new dimension.” Reportedly, the last word he uttered before passing away was ARIGATO (thank you, in Japanese) – What a beautiful sentiment from an inspirational man. Below is my favourite quote from Masaru. May you Rest in Peace, Dr. Emoto!


We must begin by learning what it means to have enough … to feel gratitude for having been born on a planet so rich in nature and gratitude for the water that makes our life possible. If you open your eyes you will see that the world is full of so much that deserves our gratitude. When you have become the embodiment of gratitude, think about how pure the water that fills your body will be. When this happens, you, yourself will be a beautiful shining crystal of light.
