Erin & Mike’s Wedding

Erin, the first of the Encina cousins to get married. Mike and Erin had a beautiful wedding out in San Clemente, CA. A night filled with tears of joy, memories of the past, and happiness all around. I’m so grateful we could all get together and see you begin the next chapter of your lives, together. Hope to be an Uncle soon. Enjoy your honeymoon!

Portland – John & Sarah’s Wedding

We flew out to Portland, Oregon along with the Otis crew to celebrate John and Sarah’s wedding. We enjoyed the famous breweries and eateries of Portland, and even made our way out to the David Hill Vineyard for some wine tasting. Note to all: don’t ever take an Uber/Lyft out to the middle of no where and expect to find a ride back. We almost got abandoned, had it not been for Hai allowing us to sardine-can into his small rental car.

The wedding itself was beautiful, filled with a lot of raw emotions from the bride and groom, the funniest speech from John’s dad, and the sweetest father/daughter & mother/son dances. Congrats to the newlywed couple and their amazing life ahead of them.

Japan 2016

Japan, the land of the crispest beers, the best food, and the smallest hotel rooms. In February, Belinda and I roamed around Tokyo and Kyoto, right after our trip to the Philippines. This was my first trip back since 2010, and for Belinda it was her first time ever visiting Japan. It was fun rediscovering all the things that make this country so interesting– the colorful lights, the friendly people, and all of awesome stores and merchants. This time around I found my new favorite ramen (sorry Ippudo), and hands down the best gyoza I’ve ever tasted. Belinda fell in love with the country, and I’m sure we’ll be back again very soon.
