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.
