Where have I been these past few months? Or better yet, where have I been this past year (or two)? Around. Pretty much around. My life has been very busy recently hence the infrequent journal entries.

Moving on… I just came back from the United States. It was my first time to step on American soil and I had a great time. One of the primary reasons of my visit was to attend my brother’s graduation from the Master of Laws program of Yale University. Yale Law School, by the way, is regarded as the number one law school in the world.

Yale Law School Commencement. This was after the university rites held at the Yale Old Campus.

We spent quite some time appreciating the campus of Yale University. The buildings were grand, charming, and full of history. Walking around the area was surreal, almost like being in a movie. It had a vibrant, old-world charm to it that I loved.

Flowers were in bloom. Can you find the bird? πŸ™‚

Bikes and sunshine.

Hogwarts. Haha!

Just about anywhere I look, there’s something beautiful in New Haven. The weather was also lovely and cool with just the right amount of sunshine.

Of course, I wouldn’t miss the chance of eating something special from Yale. We went to Frank Pepe’s Pizzeria Napoletana, one of the oldest pizzerias in the United States.

Frank Pepe Pizzeria Napoletana.

Established in 1925, Frank Pepe’s well-known in the country. They specialize in thin-crust pizzas cooked in brick ovens. The restaurant’s popularity was pretty evident from the long line outside even though we came at an off-peak time. We ordered the white clam pizza, named as the best pizza in the whole of Connecticut, and the margherita pizza.

White clam. This is really good! It burnt my palate though. Hahaha!

I loved the Margherita Pizza more though. It was simple and light, refreshing to a certain degree.

One of my favorite spots in New Haven was Mason Mathis, which is a Belgian cafe. I loved dining there, especially outside the shop. The ambiance inside is nice, but outside, people watching is fun. Hehehe. πŸ˜›

Favorite breakfast in New Haven! Loved the salad.

Enough with the food, here are more photos from around the campus…


Cheerful chairs and a church.


To the dungeon. Kidding!

I really hope I would be able to stroll around Yale once again. Good thing my brother was accepted into the Doctor of Judicial Science program of Yale, meaning I’d probably be visiting him next year. Time to save up for my airfare! πŸ˜›

Good bye, I’m off for now. πŸ™‚
