Thanks … No Thanks

I’m thankful I’ve never had to think about how much a car battery costs and just went and bought one when I needed it. A friend of mine had to get his car jumped every time he wanted to go somewhere because his battery died. I wish I could of helped him … but I felt I was bothering him instead. Glad he was finally able to get a new one.

I am NOT thankful to hear someone from my graduating high school class has passed away. We had way to many people in our school so I didn’t know him but the posts I see all over Facebook shows he was a good man. His family & friends are in my thoughts.

I’m thankful I was able to stand for 18 hours this past weekend for those that can’t. I believe I was born to help others.

I am NOT thankful for these monthly headaches that won’t go away for a good few days. The pain is always in the same place. If I throw up, it goes away. I’m trying not to soooo we will see how it goes.

I’m thankful for technology. I just found out Justin & Leah are officially engaged! It was a long time coming and it’s wonderful I can know about it so many miles away! I feel old. And super single.

Finally Friday … no work for me. Hello weekend. Weekend of laziness.

New Year, 2nd Blogoversary

It’s been a whirlwind of a year. Reason I started this blog on New Year’s Day is because I wanted a new start. And because I knew people did recaps every Blogoversary and New Year … and I’m too lazy to do it twice in one year sooooo yep. Here goes!

  • First time in a recording studio: back of a house type deal but it was cool to see how everything gets put together. Helped throw some ideas in. I loved it. I wish I was good enough for this line of work.

There has been so much going on this past year and there would be more if I was more consistent with my blogging. It’s been a year of ups and downs but the ups shine through more. I hope you all had a great 2012 because 2013 just begun and it’s going to be a great one!

Stay Positive! Think Good Thoughts!

Happy Friday!

Lately I’ve been wondering how I made it through my school years. At work, in meetings, I always feel so tired. Someone. Help. How do you get through meetings that lasts for (an) hour(s)??

Anyway, last weekend one of my best friends got engaged! I am SO excited. I knew it was coming but I didn’t know when. It’s going to be a long engagement seeing how he’s going to be in the Caribbean for school. Eep!

I saw this on Pinterest … and yes. It sunk in.

Day 18: Thunderstorm Warning

IMG_8357IMG_8358

Since I heard the news of sissy’s engagement I was too excited to fall back to sleep so I went to Kathy and Mum. Breakfast is served. The little doggies taste way different. Less sodium or something I guess.

Then we bought some cakes for PoPo.

Went home and relaxed a little bit then shopped a little more.

Had lunch … soooo good. This sausage was a jumbo and taste so much better!

We had plans to go somewhere but … thunderstorm warning made us stay in instead. Mum and I packed our luggage to see how much we can fit and all that jazz. Overload. We will figure it out later.

Then dinner was served. Obviously we didn’t do much today.

So good. My favorite is the first two eats. I want to have it again before I leave but I highly doubt it.

Since we didn’t do much tonight and we had to cancel our plans, Kathy decided to buy tickets to watch the 12:30am showing of The Dark Knight Returns.

Oh hello, Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Winking smile 

Their popcorn is different here … it’s CARAMEL popcorn. HOLY MOLY! Too sweet but so crunchy good!

We didn’t get out of the theater till around 3am! But it was so worth it. Love when sexy men are trying to save the world …

Day 17: Intestines In My Mouf

** Sissy and Brett got engaged! I is happy. Hopefully she’s not mad that I just shared it to the world. I cannot contain my excitement!

IMG_8332IMG_8333

Anyway. Day started out with a Weiner dog and egg tart. Mum and I waited for the longest time for PoPo to go dim sum with her but she already ate … and we found out a long time after. We were starving by then.

Then I went to the mailbox to mail all those dang postcards. So cute .. it’s called a Letter Box.

IMG_8340IMG_8342IMG_8343IMG_8341IMG_8344

Then we ate at a Japanese Restaurant. Tea. Iced Lemon Tea. Salad. Seaweed Salad. Miso Soup. Sushi & Sashimi Box. Grilled Mackerel. YUM!

IMG_8345IMG_8348IMG_8350

VitaSoy afterward. Lots of shopping. I bought Chinese Made Easy for Kids 1st book … time to learn how to read and write! I already know how to listen and speak. But this is a little different. It’s for Mandarin … not Cantonese. But it shouldn’t be that hard. I also bought Pens and Watercolour Pencils! And then another VitaSoy … malted. YUM!

IMG_8346IMG_8347IMG_8351IMG_8352IMG_8353IMG_8354IMG_8355IMG_8356

Dinner … served.

Intestines. Duck. Celery with Squid. Veggies. Fish. More Belly Intestine stuff. Soup! BEER!

I should be on Victoria Peak (Hong Kong’s mountain top) later tonight watching the gorgeous view if the Thunderstorm has let up. It should look something like this. Fingers crossed.
