[ UBC ] Nitobe Garden and Music World

 
Nitobe Garden on UBC campus.

Asian Centre – The place where I went when I first set foot on the campus (for Jap speech competition in high school) . This is at the back door leading to the Nitobe Garden.
The building was “once” surrounded by water

 

The little door leading to a memorial garden that takes me away from the world of worries and depression to the world of serenity and tranquility.

Whenever I wish I were somewhere else, this is where I went. It reminds me so much of Kyoto & days in Japan.

On the way to Student Union Building.

People disappearing into the distance on a super foggy day.

UBC School of Music & the tuning fork.

UBC. March 20. 2007
There goes my “figure & ground”. apparently the focus went to all the stuff in the bkground.. lol.


Can’t believe it snowed again.. & It’s MARCH!
Who said Spring was here?
March 22. The rain and the heavy cloud and everything are just super depressing.

But Spring will be here.. eventually.

Big Blue Sea from the Rose Garden, UBC.
Reminds me a bit of Stockholm!
I was standing on the wall. The air was so much fresher up there. I must have scared some ppl who just dropped by to see the view. haha

On the way to my parkade every morning.


Cherry Blossom all over campus.

The music grad. t-shirt!

Imagine trying to write a timed exam with the super loud & complex rhythm of gamelan in ur ears! & I was on the 4th floor!There was 2 of us writing the final. & The prof saw that I stared at the sight-reading score blankly, wrote 2 sentences & lost my trend of thought when the gamelan went on.. he just said: “if the gamelan is bothering u, sorry I can’t tell them to stop…”
But I managed to block it after 5 mins. phew~ really wanted to watch the perf. too!
