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!

Why Peyton Manning should get MVP of the year

Indianapolis Colts Release Peyton Manning - News Conference

Peyton Manning has had a more than a stellar year with the Denver Broncos and I believe he should get MVP for the year. (Sorry Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady).

Not only has he had a record breaking season as a new Denver Bronco but it is just amazing how he has been able to come back after 4 neck surgeries which no one thought he would fully recover from. Peyton has given the Broncos hope for another NFL Championship. Just like we got John Elway from the Colts, hopefully Peyton too will be one holiday miracle in the making! He has turned this franchise around!

Giving the Broncos 9 straight wins in a row making it a total of 11 wins to 3 losses is an amazing record for the previously struggling Denver Broncos. People were anxious to see what was going to happen at the beginning of the season but it is no surprise that Peyton Manning has more than delivered his side of the deal. With 4016 yards he is well on his way to posting his third-highest passer rating for his career. Not to mention that some of his other stats are very close to being the best of his NFL career. And considering that it usually takes players time to adjust to new teams it is just amazing how fast Peyton has come to embrace the Broncos as HIS team. His signature act of directing plays to teammates can still be seen on the field and is a key part of what makes Peyton such a great leader as well as a team player.

Tom Brady’s stats may be better in more areas than Peyton Manning but even ESPN gives Peyton a higher QBR than Brady. And I guess it’s a different game when someone like Brady is consistently active in the NFL and is compared to Manning who was out an entire season. And it really comes down to what people look at when deciding who the MVP should be. But I agree that Peyton will get the sentimental vote from the people since he has such an amazing story behind him and his recovery and resurgence in the NFL has really been something quite unique.

What do you guys think?

Finals are over AND I AM BACK! I SWEAR IT!

What better way to start a blog entry than with some more NBA commercials?!

It’s so hard to choose JUST one though. They’ve all been so hilarious lately!

But I guess since I am a Lakers Fan by birth here is a commercial with Dwight Howard as THE GHOST HUNTER!

I swear I wouldn’t hate him so much if he STOPPED MISSING SO MANY GODDAMN FREE THROWS!

I’ll have to post about that Brooklyn Nets game I went to on another post…

And if you liked that commercial, there’s one with Ricky Rubio as a backyard wrestler…it’s pretty priceless.

It’s weird though because I’ve been more on a football kick lately so I’m just waiting for the Broncos vs Ravens game on Sunday!

I am stoked! I know it’s going to be a good game.

Dude, what would the Broncos DO without Peyton Manning??

Overall the Broncos have more total yards per game, passing yards per game, points per game, third-down conversions and possession times. The only thing the Ravens have got on us are Rushing Yards per game but hopefully that won’t be an issue come Sunday. I know that a lot of crazy stuff can happen in football, especially with the Texans taking such a severe beating on Monday from the Patriots, but I still believe in Peyton Manning!

It’s finally paying off to be a Broncos fan! I knew I would see them be glorious again!

And I’ve been writing a lot more original stuff in school so hopefully I can continue that and go somewhere with it.

Boy have I missed you guys!

Rolls Royce x Ada Wong Orgasm

So the other day I went to go see Resident Evil in the theaters. Some have Star Trek, others Star Wars but my Holy Grail is Resident Evil so I couldn’t resist!

The movie kind of sucked compared to the others but there were two things that made the movie worth my time. Well three is you count Michelle Rodriguez. RAWR! For those of you who don’t know I was Michelle Rodriguez from Machete for Halloween last year. I should have pictures somewhere but it’s just me in my bra. Go figure right? Haha.

But anyways, besides Michelle Rodriguez (appearing multiple times), Ada Wong fuckin made that movie! God was she drop dead gorgeous! I know who I want to be for Halloween! Ugh…do I have time though? Or anything to do? Meh. Plus I look kind of strange with short hair.

I could NOT stop staring at her the WHOLE movie. She’s one sexy fox. This was also pretty surprising because they usually pick ugly ass Asian girls to star in movie roles like Lucy Liu or Brenda Song or even Devon Aoki. I KNOW there are much prettier girls than those three.

And if Ada Wong wasn’t hot enough. I got to see my baby on the Big Screen! If you watch the youtube clip I attached above you’ll see what it is. Not only is she driving a brand new Rolls Royce through the fake streets of Russia but this car is bad ass! It survives almost any damage imaginable! Like she would survive if she were in a Honda Civic or something. Psh. The movie would end right there.

It was well worth the $8.75 I paid to go see it.

And I’m so disappointed in my Broncos! I’m glad they were at least able to catch up from a 13-0 at the end of the 1st.

I’ve finally set up my computer (and my apartment)!


Excuse all the boxes. I actually took this picture earlier this week so it doesn’t look like that right now. I’ll take another picture once I dismantle all of the boxes and throw them away. I’m about 80% done but it’s hard for me to carry the huge boxes downstairs so I’m taking my time. It’ll all get done though. I finished most of the other cleaning so we should be good.

We went to go look for a dinette set yesterday but the one we wanted is currently “in transit” so the lady said it would be a couple more weeks…I guess we’ll see. We’re having our open house tomorrow so we really wanted something in the house by either today or tomorrow but I guess that’s seeming a little improbable at the current moment. Oh well. It is what it is.

So yeah, I finally set up my computer so I can write real posts. I’m still not used to writing long posts on a laptop so I’m glad to be back on my computer. I forgot how good it feels to just sit in front of the computer and just write. It’s amazing! And I’ve missed all you guys too! I’ve mostly been cleaning and going to work and watching playoff games. But I’ll talk about that later.

I just have to say, I love our TV though. Not only do we get sports in HD but also the Food network and all my games look so amazing! Muhahaha. It’s bad because I don’t think I do anything else…hahaha. It’s so pretty…I don’t want to be away from it! I mean I spent the whole morning today watching “Food Network Star” which I am now officially hooked on after 2 episodes. DAMN YOU CABLE TV! Just SUCK the life right out of me why don’t you?!

Oh and the other day I was feeling a little down so I went on a little shopping spree and splurged on myself. Want to see what I got?

The girl at Gamestop convinced me to buy Killzone 3 and I actually like it a lot. Again, if I could pull myself away from Chopped or Storage Wars I would be playing more often…but it’s SO HARD! AH! For those of you who don’t know, I’ve never had cable my whole life except for those brief periods while staying at a hotel so this is something new for me and I just can’t get enough of it! I mean, I didn’t even watch TV these past 2 years. My TV was only on when I wanted to play video games and that was about it.

Oh and I also pre-ordered Black Ops II so they gave me a free poster and I get some cool perks for preordering early! Yay! This actually made my day because I left all my other COD posters back home in LA. (God I hope my mother doesn’t rip/throw them away…) I wonder where I should put this one…

I actually went to Home Depot before work yesterday and I got some stuff to hang up the art that I brought with me so I’ll get started on that today when Mark gets home. I can’t wait to give our apartment a little flare. Our place is so modern though it’s pretty cool.

I bought one other thing for myself because I just couldn’t resist.

Hmmm…what could it be?

No, it’s not shorts…or lingerie…or anything cute.

It’s…A PEYTON MANNING BRONCOS SHIRT!

YEAH BUDDY!

Come football season I’m going to wear it EVERYWHERE!

YUUUUUUUUUUP!

NBA playoffs post coming up~
