Of course it rains the day after I wash my car

PhotoGrid_1359057859837

So I washed my car (to the best of my ability) last night and OF COURSE it is raining buckets all day today.

Go figure right?

Some before and after shots. I tried to get as much tar off the tires. It was easier said than done. The back tires weren’t too bad but the front ones were HARD. And I need to buy some car wax soon because it seems like washing your car is pointless without it.

There was some damage to the paint but that can’t be helped for now.

And here are some pictures from the rain today. There was this cat just sitting in the rain and I tried to get it to come out so I could take care of it but it wouldn’t budge from its spot so I just had to leave. I had no way of getting around the fence it was in.

It’s cleared up a lot right now but thank god I’ve been carrying around my umbrella lately because otherwise I would have been soaked MORE than I already was with the sideways rain and everything.

It’s just another thing in life. The world HAS to rain on you when you’ve washed your car. It is what it is.

Everyday life in Hawaii

2013-01-06_15-33-35_37

Thought I would just post some pictures of what I’ve been up to everyday while I’m here.

Nothing too crazy.

First picture is of some Taro Boba Milk Tea! Which was delicious! I ordered a small but it turned out to be pretty big.

This was the picture from the first day of school.

It was raining pretty hard in the morning but there’s always a rainbow during/after so I thought it’d be cool to show you guys.

It sucked for me though. Unprepared. No umbrella. Wearing a see through shirt.

NOT A GOOD IDEA.

And this was the second day of school.

Still raining. Still unprepared. But at least this time I was NOT wearing a see through shirt. Phew~

2013-01-09_14-37-30_162

Took me about 2-3 days of working on it after school but I finished the 1000 piece underwater puzzle that I had bought over Thanksgiving vacation in LA.

It was actually a lot of fun. (No Mark did not help me put it together).

I think this is what happens when you are an only child. Board games don’t really do it for you but a PUZZLE! Now THAT’S a WHOLE DIFFERENT STORY! Oh man did I love putting together puzzles when I was a kid.

No I did not have a sad childhood, thank you very much. I just like what I like. That’s all.

And now it’s time to look for another one to complete!2013-01-09_17-25-53_185

Watched the Lakers vs Spurs game yesterday.

And I was like all other Lakers fans yesterday, greatly disappointed.

Man, being so many games under .500 SUCKS!

WE HAD IT TOO! I thought we were SO lucky when Parker through it out of bounds but NO. We have to F*** it up like we always do in the 4th quarter. Typical Lakers. *Sigh*

I like the Spurs though but this would have been a good win for the Lakers. A girl can dream.

And Dwight Howard, Jordan Hill and Pau Gasol are out for tomorrow’s game.

I thought the injuries would be not as frequent now that we’re back at a regular season but again I was mistaken.

UGH PLEASE SOMEONE JUST TAKE DH OFF OUR HANDS!

WE DON’T WANT HIM ANYMORE!

(And I NEVER wanted him in the first place!)

Gay.

We went and had some yogurt yesterday so that made things a lot better.

Yogurt: Peppermint, Taro and Plain Tart with Rainbow Sprinkles and Mochi! YUM!

And I started writing and editing for the University paper! I am so excited!

I’ll post a link to the University blog to which I will probably be posting to.

Exciting!!!!!

Here comes Honey Boo Boo

So we’ve all seen that Toddlers and Tiara episode or clip where this little girl says, “A dollar makes me holla honey boo boo!” and for those of you who don’t go on YouTube or haven’t gotten addicted to Toddlers and Tiaras yet here is the clip from the original episode.

Yes I do watch the show and Yes I am addicted. How could you not be when you get little girls like this every now and then. They just MAKE TV!

And for those of you who already know they’ve made a TV show spin off off of a different contestant named Eden and the show was called ‘Eden’s World’ but it didn’t do too well and it was on Yahoo’s list of failed Spin offs which also included The Pauly D Project and RuPaul’s Drag U but we’ll talk about that another time.

The reason why I’m writing this blog is because they just aired a commercial for yet ANOTHER spin off but this is one I actually can’t wait to watch. Want to know what it’s called? ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ and I am TOTALLY serious.

If you don’t believe me, watch this commercial:

Where do people come up with these ideas?

In other news…apparently when it rains in Hawaii all the ants go inside so even though I live on the 14th floor of an apartment I still get mini Hawaiian ants. UGH. And what’s even worse is that not only do I keep the house IMMACULATE with NO FOOD LYING AROUND but they’ve still managed to make their home INSIDE MY COMPUTER. NO JOKE. Like literally INSIDE MY COMPUTER. They come in and out of the air vents and it’s driving me nuts. I took my computer apart and shook as many as I could out. Wiped it down a million times. Used ant spray and Clorox bleach spray but even then every other second one will come crawling out of some crevice of my computer. And in the process of cleaning my computer I think I may b=have broken it. Yeah I can still go online but now it says I have no audio output and it says that I can’t go on Google or Facebook because it’s not “safe” for me to do so. OMG. I JUST WANT TO WRITE BLOGS ABOUT STUFF! Anger rising……..

Damn ants. I’ve had it up to HERE with you!

I called the exterminator so he should be here tomorrow morning. I can’t wait! Now if only I could get my computer back in working order. UGH. Whatever.

Hong Kong Part 1

Well right before we left for Hong Kong I got The Walking Dead video game for the PS3 and I found it pretty entertaining. It’s less fighting zombies and more making the right decisions so that you’ll live and everyone won’t hate your guts. I finished the first episode and I’m just waiting for the other 4 to come out. Apparently they’ll come out every month so that’ll be good. I’ll have something to play since Mark informed me the other day that the release date for Bioshock 3 has been moved to February from October. Bleh. Not fair!

I tried playing Dead Island again yesterday but I got pwned by the zombies and some 17 year old kid in Chicago. Well he was level 50 and he came and rampaged my level 20 game. Whatever.

Anyways, we got a pretty awesome hotel in Hong Kong.

We had a pretty snazzy restroom and everything too.

There wasn’t really a view but we didn’t mind. Most times we were out and about anyways so it didn’t really matter. And the times we were back at the hotel trying to get out of a freak storm we’d be warm and cozy in our nice bed watching some good ol’ Adventure Time! Hahaha.

There were only like 6 shows on Cartoon Network Asia that were all in rotation. I’m serious. And most of these shows I’ve never even heard of.

1. Adventure Time
2. Gumball
3. Some bug show
4. Chowder
5. Tom & Jerry
6. Camp Lazlo (once)

But when we weren’t watching Adventure Time we’d be watching Wipeout on AXN. Hahaha. It was on every single morning and that’s some priceless stuff right there!

And for those of you who have yet to catch on here’s a clip just to show you how awesome this show is!

New Season starts soon! Mark and I can’t wait!

And I thought I was going to buy a lot of clothes throughout the whole trip but I did most of my splurging on the first day.

I bought a Lebron jersey for less than half the price of a real jersey back home. YES! I kind of wanted more jerseys but I restrained myself. I got some cute stuff though so I’m happy. I took some mini polaroid pictures with the instax mini camera I bought so I have quite a few of those too. Maybe I’ll scan them sometime.

We both had to deal with a little shower here and there but we got to eat good food and see some amazing shit so we didn’t really mind all too much. I wanted to take a picture of the food we ate but I felt like that would just make me very stereotypically Asian that I had to stop myself.

This wouldn’t really be a Hong Kong post if there were no pictures of Hong Kong right? Hahaha.

A lot of the buildings in Hong Kong were beat up and dilapidated but they still looked pretty neat. It looked like that scene in Inception where he goes back to his dream island/world and all the buildings are like falling apart around him.

Kinda like this but less intense. YUP!

And we saw these ADs everywhere! It’s for this jewelry store called TSL but they’d use the same girl and dog for each ad. Sometimes she’d be holding the dog, other times they’d be far apart and every once in a while there would even be another dog.

TSL and Chow Tai Fook’s (another jewelry store) are like the ABC stores of Hong Kong. They are EVERYWHERE! I don’t know how these people make ANY money! I’m going to see if I can find the other ads online somewhere.

I found one where she’s with 4 dogs. Just absolutely ridiculous but so awesome!

And we went to McDonalds and not only are the portions really small but they have different sections to the McDonalds. There’s a drink section which is like for Ice Cream Shakes and Smoothies and stuff and then there was another counter for desserts. Like when I say different section I mean whole different counters and registers just for that one type of thing. It was pretty neat. Again, I was too chicken to take a picture but I’m sure I could find one online.

See theres one side with Hamburgers, and then two other counters on the right hand side where it says “McCafe”. Sometimes the drinks (like coffee and shakes) and dessert counter will be the same but it depends on where you go.

But why I wrote about MickeyD’s is because I took this picture (or Mark took a better one actually).

BITEME. FRESH. CLASSIC.

One last thing before I go. When I looked up “Hong Kong McDonalds” on Google I got a “McDonalds Hong Kong Wedding” result instead…

Weird. To each their own.

I’m a fat kid…on the inside

Thank god it doesn’t show on the outside! Hahaha.

I usually write about basketball and I probably will again after this post but I haven’t written down what I’ve been doing with my life, just what other people have been doing with theirs so here goes!

My voice is still completely gone though…

Friday I had a day off so I spent it with…Phoebe! We had some QUALITY girl time and we got to talk about a lot of things. She hasn’t really explored LA too much yet so I decided to show her around so I drove basically EVERYWHERE from 4 o’clock on out. I took her to Wackos and it literally BLEW her mind. Didn’t spend TOO much time there because I was hungry so we went to go eat at Umami Burger. FUCK IT WAS GOOD! Well…it’s ALWAYS good. I got to see all the usual people and Scott came in to work while we were eating too!

What did I have to eat…A something Poutine Burger? I don’t know what it was but it was delicious!


Mushrooms + Cheese + Beef Patty + ON A BED OF FUCKING FRIES.
Can I get another one please?
And then Scott brought out this CRAZY dessert!

Two layers of thin oatmeal cookies that were like deep fried with caramel sauce and ice cream on top. I thought I had died and gone to heaven! FUCK it was good…

And then I drove down Laurel Canyon all the way to Studio City which was pretty nice. I bought a new black dress but no pictures yet…sorry. Walked around, talked some more.

Then I drove back to my place and we swapped some clothes, talked, tried to watch some stuff but didn’t really have a chance to because we were talking so much. All in all it was an AWESOME day! It was my first time hanging out with Phoebe but it felt like we had been friends forever! I’m sad it’s not going to happen more often…with me moving and everything. I just hope everyone comes to visit me sometime.

Saturday I went to work. It was busy but I was working a private party so it wasn’t bad at all. I had some…Fat C**** that attended and DIDN’T tip but fuck her.

And then I went out with Setsu. I had a bunch of stuff to give her since I’m moving so it made for a nice opportunity to hang out and talk like old times. I think we’ve known each other … god I don’t even know how many years it’s been. It’s been a LONG time, that’s for sure.

We went to eat Pho because we had both been craving it so it was AWESOME! Syracuse losing wasn’t awesome but I got over it. (No I didn’t). Apparently Amy’s parents drove 4 hours to NC to watch the Kansas game. That’s hardcore. I have faith that they’ll win. Not even sweating it.

After that we went to this place called Yellow House near my house. It’s literally less than a mile from my house and I’ve never been there. UGH…but there’s a good reason why. I hate rude servers. COME ON! I’M FUCKING PAY YOU TO WORK, DON’T TALK BACK TO ME!

Gross. This is what it looks like anyways.

Or the Inside/Outside anyways. The ACTUAL outside is a big yellow house. I’m sorry but it looks gay as fuck. I call it like I see it.

The nurse told me not to have any soda, caffeine, dairy or any of that good stuff but I saw an Almond Roca Latte on the menu so I couldn’t resist! Too bad it sucked donkey balls. It tasted like that stuff you make by adding those coffee packets they have at hotel rooms with hot water, like watered down shit. It was gross. Sorry Setsu. She ended up getting a Shaved Ice with Fruit, which also looked disgusting…ugh fruit. Whoever thought ice + condensed milk + fruit + strawberry ice cream + fruity pebbles was a good idea should be hung.

And they also had smores on the menu so I thought, hey why not?

LOOK WHAT THEY BROUGHT ME!

WHAT? AM I OUT IN THE FOREST? I don’t want to make my own god damn smores AND pay for it! Who do these people think I am? REALLY?

BULLSHIT!

Oh and you know what else happened?

I asked the server for a plate and instead of saying okay do you know what he says?

“Oh that doesn’t come with a plate”.

NO SHIT IT DOESN’T COME WITH A PLATE!

EVEN WHEN YOU’RE OUT CAMPING YOU GET A FUCKIN PAPER PLATE. JESUS CHRIST! WHAT AM I AN ANIMAL? I’M JUST SUPPOSED TO SHOVE IT IN MY MOUTH WHEN IT’S READY AND EAT IT LIKE A SQUIRREL WHO JUST HAS TO STUFF IT IN ITS CHEEK UNTIL LATER? FUCK YOU.

BRING ME A GOD DAMN MOTHAFUCKIN PLATE.

I am NEVER going there again…I’m sticking to my normal cafes.

Setsu and I talked a lot too which was nice. I’m glad I was able to get some more stuff out of my room. It’s so hard to clean! … But I’m getting there…slowly but surely.

Today I just went to work and it was busy as fuck. It’s raining in LA today so once people got seated they just REFUSED to leave…I had people waiting over an hour for a table. Oh well. It is what it is. As long as we made some bank tip today…I’m good. I was also talking with a coworker about going to the Lakers @ Clippers game but it’s so expensive. Ugh…it WOULD be nice to go to one more game this season before I leave and before the playoffs… Mark and I should be back for the Playoffs. Not too sure what’s happening this year because we’re going to Hong Kong but I’m sure we’ll figure something out…

Yay for yearly traditions! Woo! OH YEAH PLAYOFF GAMES HERE I COME!

I’ll figure out if we’re going or not. I still have some time.

Oh and before I end this entry…look what I got for my cousin!

I bought him a Nike JUST DO IT shirt and a hat from the Pop Up Shop at work. Pretty neat right? He’s going to be the coolest kid in 6th grade! Hahaha.

AH THE THUNDER BEAT THE HEAT! I don’t know if I should be happy or sad…
