Electric Run

This Saturday me and a few friends participated on the first Houston Electric Run, an amazing event where everyone runs or walks 3miles/5kms on a track full of light effects and energetic electronic music. Everyone wears glowing sticks and other glowing stuff too, which adds to the whole atmosphere!

After the run we joined the party at the Reliant Stadium where we danced until midnight. After that, we decided to have an after party at Stereo Live where Sasha was playing.

What a weekend!!

Dinner with friends

Several of my friends who attended critical mass this Friday went with me for dinner at a cool deli in downtown.

Here are our tired faces, ready to recharge the batteries with some nice food! :)

Critical Mass

The critical mass tonight was EPIC!!!
Me and several friends rode about 4 hours thought the streets of downtown and nearby neighborhoods. After we all got together for dinner.
I had a great time!!

And here is the coffee

Almost ready!

There is nothing like a pour over! Machines can't reproduce this haha

Geeks at the office

Me and Johnny, a coworker and friend were curious on how caffeine affects blood pressure and pulse, so we took several measurements throughout the day before and after drinking coffee.
Here is me checking my pressure haha I'll post the results soon!

Garden maintenance at the Hare Krishna temple

This Saturday me and a few friends volunteered to help performing the garden maintenance at the Hare Krishna temple. We had a great time and the garden looked a lot better once we were done!

This happens about once every month. I'll surely be helping again next time around!

Flying Dog Raging Bitch

That's the name of the beer I had today with cooworkers at a happy hour.

I'll tell you, this Belgian beer had earned it's name... One of the most strong and bitter beers I've ever had in my life!

Garden, version 2.0

Here are a few pictures of my garden, version 2. The previous garden ended up dying due to lack of sun light. So I removed everything and planted them all over again, but this time using the grow light.

Here are a few pictures of how it is coming along!

Had a great day at the Water Park

This last Sunday Lidiane, Vinh, Alejandro and I went to the Schlitterbahn water park near Galveston and had a fantastic day!

The weather was perfect and the water warm! We tried most of their attractions and ended up coming home almost at night time.

My apartment glows!

This new light I'm using to grow my garden is so strong it makes my apartment window glow even during the day... and this is how it looks at night! It can be seen from far, faaar away!

The light has orange and blue ultra bright LED lights, specially designed to grow plants in the absence of direct sun light, but when mixed it appears to be purple.

The light is very strong and annoying, so it is connected to a device that turns it on automatically every day at 1am, after I go to sleep and then turns it off at 8am, before I wake up... And on week days it also turns it on from 2pm to 5pm, when I'm at work.

It seems to be working fine so far, the plants are growing strong!

Only in Texas

Only here you can see this kind of stuff running in the streets.
I'll refrain from making further comments and let you have your own opinion on this.

Beers with coworkers

The development team at Assemble Systems went out for a few beers this afternoon. We had a nice time!

I ended up trying a Belgian beer called Golden Monkey. Too strong for my taste, but worth the experience.

And this was Wednesday afternoon. :)

We started the night with a reading session, then we discussed the subject and went on to prepare a bunch of hand made pizzas.
