Back to the Woodlands for my favorite summer music festival.
Can you find your way through this mirrored adventure?
Several years ago, I followed ViktorVash on Instagram because I loved his photography. When he posted images from his visit to the Franklin Institute, I made a point to see it this summer. Philadelphia is only a few hours from my hometown in Maryland. When my mom called me one day and explained she wanted to visit the city, I jumped at the chance and invited my sister and fiancé for the adventure.
The science museum hosts “A Mirror Maze: Numbers in Nature” through September 4. Immediately upon entering, you’ll be shocked by the neon lights and stunning patterns that seem to surround yourself endlessly. After bumping into a few mirrors, you can find your way around the immersive experience. The 1700-square-foot maze challenges you to discover how geometry, tessellations and repetitions are the basis of design in the world today.
You can explore the rest of the museum once you’ve found your way out. Your inner child will come out as you soak in all the science and technology in the building. Maybe you’ll learn a thing or two!

An immersive inflatable sculpture popped up in Columbia, Maryland.
You had me at “immersive inflatable sculpture.”
When I saw this article on Hypebeast, I immediately changed my weekend schedule to accommodate the Columbia Festival of Arts. I knew the photos wouldn’t serve how immersive this experience could actually be.
On June 16 at 5 pm, the Katena Luminarium by Architects of Air opened with a 45-minute queue growing longer by the minute. I waited in the humidity, but when I entered the front I met a cold breeze since the inflatable structure hosted air condition. I removed my shoes (a necessary action to enter), learned more about the sculpture before entering into a surreal environment. Neon colors filled the walls; illuminated textures added additional sensory. Kids ran around as my friends and I became lost while exploring the entire structure.
Several famed structures inspired parts of the Katena including Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia and a Hindu temple.
These pictures don’t do it justice.
The next US stop will be in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania August 4-13. For additional tour dates, click here.
A few blogging tips on the graffiti cliffs of Georgetown.

I chatted with MeeJee of ASKMEEGTV about my blog on a beautiful day in Georgetown. It’s an exciting time to be a content creator in the DC area and I jumped at the chance to film in one of my favorite areas.
Showing off one of my favorite sneakers at DTLR HQ.
On one of the latest “In Da Box” shows, I appeared with one of my favorite sneakers to date. I shared with Noya live from DTLR HQ. Find out what shoe I decided to share and why I chose this pair.
A new gallery in DC opens to the public just in time for the summer rush.
In celebration of Asian Pacific Heritage Month.
I rowed my way down the Potomac River on a cloudy Saturday afternoon with a team of active militants, retired veterans and a few friends. Why? In celebration of Asian Pacific American Month, I wanted to not only give back to the community, but also explore a different culture. I learned a bit about the festival and its roots from Taiwanese culture. After weeks of preparation, our team, Full Metal Dragons, won third place out of 40+ teams.
If you’re interested in rowing next year, let me know and we can paddle together!
