Battery Powered Life

I realized I have so many battery operated gadgets in my life. Cell phone, camera, Ipod and PDA. It's those regular recharging regiments made me realized it. Thinking of consolidate them so don't have to recharge so many things. But it's hard to combine. Each of them do one thing best but also a bit of the other functions. Sometimes I think it might not be a good idea to be so depended on electronics. What happen if there's a huge power outage? Plus last night I spent about 2+ hours trying to fix the synching problem for the pda. Does it really save me time? But this seem to be where everybody is moving toward. Maybe acceptance is the only thing to do. Maybe buying stock in battery manufacturing company is another thing to do...

Good Evening with Mom

I went to a chinese banquet holiday celebration with mom. It was a good event. It was celebration put up by a chinese chorus full of middle aged and elder chinese. These ladies first got together from their love of kareoke. Then they decided to be more serious about the singing and formed a chorus, hiring a singer teacher. Now they practice and each year you can see how the students improve. It's wonderful that these elders put their passion in to action. It's also great fun to see them enjoying themselves. Forgetting unimportant things like age, weight, look etc. They created a wonderful environment where all can express themselves and have fun.

Mom's new place

Went to visit mom's new place last night. She cooked some green beans and gave me some.

Her new house is coming along really well. I think she's had work done on every single room except for the kitchen. But it looks really nice. I am genuinely happy for her. I think it's a good start for her. Her whole attitude about life is very positive because of this new place. That in turn will help her live her life better. The fact almost everything is new motivates her clean and organize more. Which will create a more soothing living environment. She can actually pursue her interest and enjoy life a little. Maybe this marks a new beginning: A beginning where she can live a healthier live. Physically, mentally and spiritually.

Shoulda gone to work today

Should have gone to work today. Didn't really have any problem to solve but people tell me it's review time so it would look good to show more effort. But I just couldn't make it. I need time to myself. We'll see how the review comes out.

Petunia and Lily

Petunia and Lily are my favorite dogs right now. They are my friend Mark's dog and I love them.

Petunia is so trusting and loves you so much. When she sleeps, she likes to get under the blanket and pushes her body against you.

Lily is more cautious by nature because she is so tiny. She likes to lick your face a lot but she has bad breathe. She licks Petunia most and Petunia puts up with it most of the time but she gets tired sometimes.

They two adorable small package of love!


I cannot mention love for any animal without mentioning Guinness. Guinness was my first pet. We had a cat once at my mom's house but didn't have it that long. Besides, I think I am just more of a dog person. We got Guinness from a shelter in Jersey. He was so adorable. He grabbed our attention the minute we went in and held it with him until we took him home with us. He's a beagle mix. Looks like a beagle but thinner. He did okay in the two apartments we had. He like to destroy thing so we learn to put our important stuff high up. We had to let him go when we moved to the house. The commute was much longer for us. The house had more people walking near then apartment and he would think we are coming home but get really frustrated that nobody is going to the house to play with him. He would then become more destructive then normal. It was to the point he would eat things to that hurts his digestive system. We had to give him up. We figure it was the right decision. Nothing would prepare how hard it was for us at the shelter. The minute they led Guinness away, I could not stop crying. I've never felt so bad in my life. I think if I could do it again, I would get rid of the house and find a living place closer to work to accomedate him. I miss him so much. I think I felt the first unconditional love from him.

I miss him so much...

Back Handed Compliment

It's thanksgiving holiday weekend. We went to see a movie with my mom. Noel went ahead to get the tickets and he got one for my mother too. I dont' like to have Noel pay for my mother but that's another story. Later on my mother thank Noel for getting her ticket and said that it was the first time Noel bought tickets for her. Noel says he doesn't think so. That's just so her specialty - back handed compliment. She's always doing that. The other day we went out to eat and afterwards she thanks me for not giving her grief all evening. My brother kinda told her off and ask her not to mention negative thing to ruining the evening. She tries to defend herself and saying she was just saying a nice thing. I don't know if she just can't help it herself or she just think that we are stupid and can't figure out that it's really not a compliment. I wish she would stop. That really bothers me.

Maybe she does that because she's got too much bitterness gathered up in her through out the years...

Thoughts on blog

Time has really changed. I used to write thoughts that no one would care but really important to me in my little journal. Now we have blog.
