Daniel is…

Hello! My name is Daniel Zhao. I was born and raised in Changchun, China, and I’m currently living in Troy NY, USA, Sendai, Japan. I’m a college student with a dream of being a film director and traveling all over the world.

I blog about life, books, movies, travel, android apps, pretty websites and occasionally, non profit organizations I like.

Another blog with photos taken in Sendai: http://sendaishasin.wordpress.com/

This is a WordPress.com blog and I love WordPress. I’ve also written a WordPress Theme Pilot Fish. And I love Android, and have been a weekend Android developer since summer 2013, and made my apps on the Google Play.

Here are some of my favorite things:

apple pie, atheism

blogging, biking, bear hugs, black and white photos, buildings with creativity

cross stitch, calligraphy, Changchun, Chinese tea ceremony

day dreaming


family, flip flops, Friday


handwritings, hiking

iPod, iPad


lighthouses, languages

mellow winter mornings, meeting old friends, movies, maps

news clipping

postcards, photography, Pedro Almodovar

ragtime, reading books, raccoons

sand beach, sightseeing, snow, subways, swimming, Sendai


Wim Wenders, Wallace & Gromit
