Literally THE best commercial during this Superbowl!
Played at JUST the right moment and everything!
Literally THE best commercial during this Superbowl!
Played at JUST the right moment and everything!
I know I said “NBA” commercial of the day but I swear it’s worth watching!
It’s Dikembe Mutombo doing a Geico commercial blocking everyone’s shots!
Made my day. That’s for sure!
The Clippers have lost EVERY game this week, including their loss today to the Portland Trailblazers, who they will play again tomorrow AND the Cleveland Cavaliers have won 3 games in a row.
Yes! The CLEVELAND CAVALIERS WITHOUT LEBRON JAMES HAS WON THREE CONSECUTIVE GAMES IN A ROW!
I am so proud of you guys!
And both the Cavs and the Trailblazers won by ONE POINT!
What can you say? Kyrie Irving has been on FIRE! Boom shaka laka!
He’s gone from 40 points against the Celtics to 35 points against the Bucks and then 32 points tonight against the Toronto Raptors!
Here’s the game winning shot he made against the Raptors!
Seriously. How amazing is that shot? He was NO WHERE NEAR the three point line!
It’s been one hell of a week! That’s for sure!
And how do I know that? You may ask.
I know because the Clippers have lost 3 consecutive games in a row.
Boy is it a good day to be a Lakers fan.
We’re FINALLY winning for once.
And we’re about to beat the Utah Jazz.
Although I must admit, Dwight Howard looks like someone from Shakespearean times.
Look at his legs. He’s wearing, what seem to be, white tights.
Yes, they are athletic wear for his bull shit injuries or what have you but it’s still funny to see him hobbling around court looking like a jester of some sort.
But yes anyways, the Clippers have lost to the:
Golden State Warriors on the 21st,
Oklahoma City Thunder on the 22nd,
Phoenix Suns on the 24th.
Boy has it been an awesome week.
Now we just need the Trailblazers to kick some serious Slop City ass and THIS girl will be ALL smiles!
For the GSW game all their shooting percentages were pretty low. They were missing a lot of 3’s and free throw shots.
Yes Chris Paul didn’t play against the Thunder but I doubt they would have won anyways.
And with Chris Paul still out for the Suns game, scores (and I’m guessing morale) just plummeted into the red zone. They’re field goal attempts and 3 point shots only averaged around 33-39%.
But I’m not complaining.
Every time Blake Griffin misses a free throw, an angel gets his wings.
I’ve been worried because I haven’t seen as many air balls from him but with only 2 out of 8 free throws made on Thursday, I don’t think I have much to be worried about anymore.
One little side note before I go though,
We were watching “Family Game Night” on TV because we had left the TV on the HUB channel and one of the prizes was for tickets to a Clippers game and the TV announcer introduced the prize as,
“You can win an L.A. Clippers VIP Experience! Where you can see such stars such as Chris Paul, Blake Griffin and…
HAHAHAHAHAHA. I swear that is what she said!
It was hilarious. It made my day, THAT’S for sure.
I don’t know about everyone else but I am NOT a fan of the new Denver Nuggets throwback jerseys.
It screams a little too 80’s for me. I mean they DID just bring back the jersey in just another more vibrant color. Here is the 1985 version.
There have been white ones, blue ones, purple ones, black ones and now they’re just in yellow.
And here are the Nike Air Force III’s that go with the jersey. (Released back in 2008).
Yes, they were designed with the Denver Nuggets throwback jersey in mind. Somehow I don’t think I could walk down the street without feeling absolutely self conscious and stupid with these shoes on but to each their own.
The use of multiple blue tones in combination with the stripe combinations down the shorts makes it look quite a bit awkward.
And when you add the matching shoes it just makes them look like huge crayons running down the court. They’d be a combination of McDonald’s puke yellow and Periwinkle fever.
All the jerseys that have been coming out this year have been horrendous. And it’s not just the Denver Nuggets but teams such as the OKC Thunder and the Charlotte Bobcats have had similar design malfunctions.
What was wrong with the old simple Nuggets jersey?
And I don’t really care for the ABA Hardwood Jerseys either…
Looks like a design mix between a baseball uniform and a hockey jersey. It’s pretty funny that they put a pick with a gold nugget on there.
Why the numbers are different colors and what that blue background that looks like a space orbit is doing behind the pick and the logo, I have no idea.
I have enough rainbow going on with my own school colors, I don’t think I want it on an official NBA jersey… but I guess I got lucky not to have the Nuggets as my home team. I’d look like a big rainbow bumblebee walking around the streets with THIS jersey on.
I hear the Magic School bus is always looking to hire.
So yesterday I woke up a little early so I could go get some breakfast pastries for Mark, myself and Olivo.
I drove down to Liliha Bakery which is pretty close by if I use the freeway. I’m sure there are other bakeries in the neighborhood that I need to try out but I always get so paranoid about trying to go to new places because I’m always worried I’m going to overshoot the actual location and have to make SEVERAL loops around the block to find the place AND/OR there is no parking ANYWHERE!
I have a legitimate reason to be paranoid because I feel like not having a parking space and overshooting a location is all I do in my car. I’m usually VERY good with directions but everything is on a one way street that like either leads to a freeway on ramp (that I do not want to go on) OR there is no opportunity to turn around to get back to where I was.
I got some donuts, a chocolate cream puff, an eclair, an apple turnover AND MY FAVORITE a sweet potato crescent. I swear I only get like two things at this place. The blueberry scone and the sweet potato crescent. It seriously reminds me of my time in Japan and I just love it!
Also testing out some photo apps on my phone. I feel as though I’m not sufficiently Asian enough to have already mastered every photo app out there to make my skin brighter or my eyes wider but I’m working on it! Hahaha.
But after chillaxing at home Olivo and I decided to take a walk down to Chinatown to look around and to see if there was anything worth buying from the Macy’s that is closing.
I was SO excited once I got to the little Chinese markets. I felt like I was back home again! They had all my favorite foods!
I bought two packets of instant noodles that Olivo SAID were spicy (because I love spicy food) BUT they weren’t spicy at all! She lied! I had to put a shit ton of Sriracha into it before I could eat it.
Also bought Strawberry Cakes! Olivo brought me all different flavors and I just loved them! They’re kind of like Fig Newtons but better! Tastier with a wide range of flavors!
I also bought a bag of peeled roasted chestnuts and needless to say I had finished it way too quickly. I absolutely LOVE chestnuts! I think I could live off of them if I had to. My mother and grandmother always bring them when they come to visit but they never last very long. But now that I know I can get it in Chinatown I am definitely going to go by more often!
AND I also bought Almond Jello Mix! They serve it as dessert in Chinese restaurants and it is SO DELICIOUS! I usually don’t care for Jello but I’ve always loved getting this at the end of every Chinese meal! I can’t wait to try it at home!!!
And this morning we watched the end of the Lakers vs Raptors game as well as both NFL games. And of course I wake up to the Lakers losing…to a team that is not even anywhere near playoffs! It just hurts to be a Lakers fan right now… I think I might start up a:
“NO DWIGHT 2013”
But I also made some Cinnamon Tortilla crisps this morning since I hadn’t in a long time. Also made an experimental tortilla pizza with salsa, parmesan, mozzarella and pepperoni and it turned out pretty good! The only issue was that the salsa I used was SUPER SPICY so the pizza ended up being super spicy so I just need to be mindful of that next time.
I can’t believe both the 49ers AND the Ravens are going to the Superbowl. I guess you got your birthday wish Austin.
We’ll get there next year Broncos! I believe in you Peyton!
After that Mark and I went to Walmart and got our groceries for the week and when we came home Olivo was back so we decided to go out and get dinner.
Olivo wanted to get a Loco Moco so I thought we could try Like Like Drive Inn. I’ve always driven by it but I’ve never been there so I’m glad I had an excuse to go. Olivo got the Loco Moco and I got the Oxtail which came with a soup, salad, drink and dessert!
Surprisingly my dish was pretty good. I do love Oxtail and I haven’t had any since I was in Hong Kong. The dish itself came with mashed potatoes and corn (which I also very much love). I gave the salad to Olivo since I despise the very existence of salad and I had the spinach soup as an appetizer. The soup wasn’t bad but I’m not quite sure what to think about it. It was…different. And for dessert I asked for a recommendation and she brought me the blueberry ice cream. I usually don’t like ice cream but it was actually really flavorful and surprisingly smooth.
I really do need to start back at the gym…
Don’t like Chris Paul but it’s pretty funny to see Mike Conley’s reaction when CP disappears into thin air.
Why Magic and Nash are eating lunch together?
Probably because Magic Johnson was psyched to see the Lakers acquire Steve Nash.
Mark and I weren’t sure why Steve Nash didn’t keep his old number (13) but I totally forgot that was Wilt Chamberlain’s number.
Do you guys remember why Nash chose 10? He said it’s because it’s the number of people on a soccer team.
Go figure Steve Nash is all about teamwork. Yay.
Now…how do we get rid of Dwight Howard…THAT’S the real question…
WHY ARE THEY WATCHING A CLIPPERS GAME?
So Mark was telling me about this dude who wore a Ted ‘Thunder Buddies’ shirt to an OKC Thunder game and I tried to find the picture but no luck as of right now.
When he first told me I was like, “Someone actually went through all that trouble to make a OKC & Ted shirt???” But it just turned out to be this shirt:
Pretty cute huh? I could see myself wearing that to an OKC game. Don’t really want to go to OKC to watch a game but you know what I mean.
But the search for the actual picture resulted in some interesting pictures of other people’s shirts.
Found this ‘Thunder the F#@K up!’ shirt and then…
Lil Wayne’s shirt
(Not related but thought I would post it anyways).
And then I found this:
My friend Olivo has come to visit from Taiwan!
I’m so excited to go out and have fun together!
She brought me SO MUCH STUFF! It’s just CRAZY!!!
On top is Tea and more tea and baguette crackers~ Tea from Taiwan is so good!
Potato chips drizzled with chocolate, shrimp crackers, caramel corn
Chocolate crackers, Egg Sachima, different senbei like snacks! made with black bean, peach, green tea…SO DELICIOUS!
An overall shot of everything.
More shrimp crackers, a bag full of hard candy, Kiki Lala notepaper, bath bombs!
Banana Chocolate Pocky and lots of amazing makeup and creams!
I love Asian makeup! I can’t spend money on makeup because I feel like it is such a waste so whenever someone gets me some I am so excited!
After I picked her up and she got a chance to unpack and rest a little bit we went out for a walk around the neighborhood so she could get her bearings.
I had to stop by Kakaako Kool and get some shaved ice with condensed milk!
Always so delicious.
She had a credit card minimum so I just told the lady to charge me the minimum and that I didn’t need to pick out anything else but she was so nice that she came outside and gave me a bag of white chocolate dipped macadamia nuts that they package there!
After that we went out to dinner. We tried to go to Genius Lounge but it was PACKED! I know it was Friday night but damn! So we walked around for a bit and decided to go to our default place, Fatty’s. I love it there but I was just worried about feeding my Taiwanese friend Chinese food for her first meal here but she liked it there too so it worked out okay.
I had the spicy beef noodle like always. Yum!
Then we went to Yogurtland for some dessert! Yay for cute Sanrio cups! The pink one says ‘Honolulu’ and the blue one on the right says ‘San Francisco’ on it. I kept some of the spoons they gave out too. But I threw the cups away…I’m not THAT crazy. Lolz.
And I put together everything into a little bowl today so we can all share! Yay!
Now it’s time for some football! Let’s go Broncos!
