Nike Hyper Elite Basketball Uniforms

With the announcement of the New York Basketball Festival in NYC this summer 2010, Nike introduced their latest designs of the Hyper Elite Uniforms for Team USA, China and other countries.

What I love about these unis are the lightweight fabric and aerographics on the back of the jerseys similar to the 2008 USA jersey in Beijing. Some of the few college universities that already sported them this past season was Syracuse, UCONN & Kentucky. All I can say is can we get a Nike ID version already so we can sport them for the Mighty Cocks?

Pablo & Kim: Malibu Engagement Session

fgallery (1 of 1)

When my friend Kim asked me to take her & fiance Pablo’s engagement photos, i was more than happy & honored to do it. I had previously shot Kim and her 3 other sisters for a siblings portrait as a gift to their mom’s on her birthday.

After numerous shoot location brainstorming, Kim was referred by a friend about this awesome spot in Malibu called El Matador Beach. It has a nice 2 bench park with a yellow poppy field on a cliff overlooking the pacific ocean. Great view. We had arrived there 10am and the first shot s were with the sun right overhead. Not ideal lighting conditions but we managed. That was until the fog came rolling through in an instant and suddenly the view of the ocean had dissapeared, Nevertheless, we overcame the fog and it really actually help us as the clouds became a nice softbox which is great for portraits bur not ideal for landscape style photos. So it was a give and take.

Overall, the shots turned out great and it was a fun day in Malibu. Congrats to Kim & Pablo’s wedding in May.

Blue Moon

In a rare astronomical appearance & especially rare that tonight is New Year’s Eve,  there will be a blue moon in the sky tonight. How rare you ask? How about once every 2 & 1/2 years. Doesn’t sound rare? Well it is New Year’s Eve.  It’s not actually a blue moon, it’s just referred to a blue moon because this is the second full moon this month.

On the other side of the world, they will experience a rare lunar eclipse.

So while your out partying safely tonight and you feel a sudden rush or feeling to do something weird, just blame it on the blue moon.

Happy New Years!

Ajos Y Cebollas

Cozy little place in South El Monte.  Good mexican food with a twist.  They really try to be different here.  They have some standard fare but some things stood out.


Their appetizer the “Queso Fundido con Chorizo” was awesome, a little greasy but filled with flavor, comes with grilled green onions and tortillas.

Their other standout dish in my mind (how ironic that i forgot the name) was the dessert,  it was basically like a pancake/crepe stuffed with dulce de leche, topped with strawberries, whipped cream.

TRY IT! food was good, big portions, comfortable ambience.
Some pictures of what i ate:
