📷 Day 15: small #mbApr

“Many small people who in many small places do many small things that can alter the face of the world.” (African Wisdom / Afrikanische Weisheit)

Took this photo while walking along the East Side Gallery in Berlin.

Urban art found on the East Side Gallery with text that reads, first in German: “Viele kleine Leute die in vielen kleinen Orten viele kleine Dinge tun, können das Gesicht der Welt verändern.” and then in English: “Many small people who in many small places do many small things that can alter the face of the world.” underneath the text block is the credits to "Afrikanische Weisheit"—African wisdom in english.

Just for the sake of posting: jumped on the Arc bandwagon last January 2024! 😁

Chi’s Arc Browser Card, with the label “Excited Connoisseur” under her name. The ARC label shows the date when she made an account for Browser Company’s Arc browser, which was last January 25, 2024.

📷 Day 14: cactus #mbApr

This is the only photo I have with a cactus in it 😆 Tried an iced coffee drink in the local mall a while back. It was OK. Nothing much to say about it 😝

Chi is holding up an iced coffee beverage in a container with the label 19° on it. In the background, a neon sign that reads "Sealed Freshness" in cursive is surrounded by fake cacti plants on a white wall.

My personal Obsidian Vault graph kinda looks like a globe, lol

Screenshot of Chi’s Obsidian Vault graph, showing the nodes clumping up together to seemingly form the landmasses one could see on a globe. One node is highlighted red because that’s the note Chi currently has opened.

Playing Botany Manor right now as part of Game Pass. This is such a cute puzzle game. My kinda jam 😄🎮

📷 Day 13: page #mbApr

Took a photo of this page spread from a book I was reading while going around Taiwan back in April 2023. I just thought it was intriguing.

“Whether instructed to stroke ten thousand cycles or even just a few hundred, the computer never complains. It always complies.”

A page spread from a book where there is a drawing of an infinity loop repeatedly drawn to span both pages. The left page is colored black with white lines, while the right page—with is where the focus is—is white with black lines. There is text at the bottom right corner of the page which reads: "Whether instructed to stroke ten thousand cycles or even just a few hundred, the computer never complains. It always complies."

📷 Day 12: magic #mbApr

Saw these cool shiny playing cards yesterday while at my friend’s cafe and lounge.

Chi is holding a deck of cards partially fanned out in her right hand. The cards themselves have a sheen texture, with the faces or symbols of each of the playing cards just a darker black to make it obvious when light shines on the surface of the card.

Dang, the accessibility description pop-up doesn’t work on Arc when making new posts via the Micro.blog website 😢 The page is just frozen until I change the tab.

I don’t know whether to report this as a bug on Arc’s end, or also on Micro.blog’s end… 😅 But I have been noticing some overlays not working on Arc too, so I guess I’ll include this in the list.

gasp omg it has been a while since I last explored Micro.blog stuff! Thread crossposting won’t be hard anymore 😆

Screenshot of Micro.blog’s Cross-post button in posts, with the context menu showing the following options: Threads, Mastodon: social.lol, Tumblr, Bluesky: chiawase.bsky.social, and Twitter / X.

First time seeing Recommendations here in Micro.blog. Gonna read up more on it. I hope the people and accounts I do eventually add (?) wouldn’t mind I link to them though 😆

📷 Day 11: sky #mbApr

Tried windsurfing back in February 2022. That was fun! I’d like to do it again someday 😁

Chi is controlling a windsurfer going to the right of the point-of-view while in the middle of Caliraya Lake in Laguna. The blue sky takes up majority of the shot, with a few clouds and some sun rays visible. In the background, a forest can be seen lining up right before the shore that draws a line in the middle of the shot.

📷 Day 10: train #mbApr

Hmm, train. Train… station? 😁

Took a photo of this self-service ticketing machine while waiting for the S-Bahn in Berlin. It still made use of paper for the tickets bought here, but it works. Goes to show even if you don’t fully digitize something, if it works, it works 😆

A self-service ticketing machine with two verification stands in front of the stairs leading to the entrance of the S-Bahn in Berlin.

📷 Day 9: crispy #mbApr

Look at them crispy hibiscus popcorn and rice flakes on top of this poke bowl I ate somewhere around Salzburg 😁

A poke bowl with hibiscus popcorn, rice flakes, corn, carrots, edamame, tomatoes, sesame seeds, and leafy greens all in a blue bowl.

📷 Day 8: prevention #mbApr

Food is apt for this prompt, I guess. Lately I’ve been (re)figuring out how I’d feed or sustain myself as I live alone.

On good days, I do cook myself something, but admittedly I just do simple fried dishes. Trying to explore other… more cost-effective ways soon.

Chi's usual breakfast meal, which is a hot coffee with sugar and creamer and fried luncheon meat with a couple of scoops of rice. Her utensils are chopsticks, and her meal is placed in a bowl.

Kinda overthought that Day 7 prompt. I just used it as an excuse to show that amusing photo of me 😆

📷 Day 7: well-being #mbApr

Interpreted this as, which would showcase how comfy and content I was?

This is one example: me being eaten by my boyfriend’s jacket because I underestimated the cold during that evening 😆

Chi is laughing while wearing her boyfriend's black big winter jacket with a fluffy hoodie, because it looks like she's being eaten by the jacket with the hoodie on top of her head. Behind her is the Salzach in Salzburg, Austria. The sky is dim, because it's early evening.

Now a bit challenged for Day 7’s prompt. Gets me into thinking :))) I know I don’t have to think too much about it, but I want to at least have a bit of a memory attached to the photos I share 😆

Posted late for Day 6 because I was on recovery mode again yesterday. But today I’m trying to get back into it.

📷 Day 6: windy #mbApr

I realize I don’t have any (recent?) photo showing any wind (or photos of windy places for that matter) so here’s a selfie I took last year while riding around Taiwan on a bike. There would be super windy days that I learned to just put on more layers if I’m biking around 😆

📷 Day 5: serene #mbApr

Took photos while walking along the riverside during my visit to Austria last February. I wanna go back soon. Things were peaceful then.

Chi looking toward the distance in front of the Salzach. The sun is shining from the upper right corner of the photo, and in the distance the University of Salzburg is in full view.
