Current Obsession : Simply Organic Everyday Moisturizing Body Lotion

I’m a nurse. To be more specific, I’m a nurse working in the Intensive Care Unit. This means my hands take a beating every single day – from constantly putting on and then ripping off the latex gloves to the never ending washing of my hands. I’m not a complete germophobe but I definitely do … Continue reading

eHarmony Has Video Posts?

Happy Friday!! Wow, I haven’t updated in a while. Oops. I’ve been busy writing a bunch of movie reviews and obsessing over why my nails are messed up. In an effort to get my mind of why my nails have suddenly become softer than pudding and weaker than….than….I dunno what, I’ve been replaying this video … Continue reading

Adventures In The Kitchen : Baking Fail

I can cook. I can’t bake. This strange conundrum makes me sad because I like cookies, I LOVE brownies and I would love to make cakes at home. This is great and all but I have no idea how to bake. The concept of sticking something in the oven frightens me. Maybe I should start … Continue reading

Adventures In Wedding Planning : Meet Me At The Alter

In many ways, I’m pretty traditional. I love it when Clyde opens the door for me (we’ve been together for over a year and he STILL does this. Makes my heart sing every single time), when he carries packages for me (gives me an excuse to watch his muscles flex. Ahahaha) and other stuff. I … Continue reading

Spread A Little Love :: Japan Earthquake And Tsunami Relief Efforts

You know, the Universe has a really weird way of keeping me in check and reminding me that there are things bigger than me out there in the world. Case in point, the earthquake in Japan. What amazes and humbles me is how the people there are dealing with this tragedy. No one is looting … Continue reading

Culture Clash

A post I had written a while ago has recently received an interesting amount of attention. I understand a person having pride in their culture. I think a healthy amount of that is never a bad thing. The only time this sense of cultural pride takes on a negative undertone is when people don’t think … Continue reading

Neighborly Consideration

I have never been so annoyed before in my life. I like kids. I don’t like it when people let their kids run amok, scream, fall down off their bikes and cry and I have to hear it go on and on and on for hours straight. Rein in and control your genetic byproducts. So … Continue reading

Adventures In Wedding Planning :: You Just Know

Picking your wedding gown is a lot like picking your man. You try on a bunch of different styles with people who matter to you the most. You strut your stuff in them while checking out your reflection and thinking to yourself “Can I see myself with this in photos that will last forever?”. You … Continue reading

Year Of The Rabbit

Happy Chinese New Year! I hope you all ate some mochi and got some red envelopes. Clyde and I gave some to each other because I made him. Haa haa haa! I’m also staring at the tangerines I got WITH THE LEAVES STILL ATTACHED. Those will make for an excellent snack after. Yummy. GONG XI … Continue reading

Santa, Baby. We Gotta Talk.

Dear Santa, So it’s about that time of year. In case you haven’t heard the good news, I’m getting married!! I know, right?! How crazy is that?! Too bad you couldn’t have delivered him to me all wrapped up complete with a bow on his head but then again, I don’t think he’d appreciate being … Continue reading
