Bags. Beaches. Bowling.

As a HUGe part of growing up, I've always been a crazy super fan of the children's mystery series called
A to Z mysteries 
by Ron Roy
Loved them and I always begged dad to go find me the editions I didn't own yet to complete the collection when he went over seas to another barnes and noble place. I ended up collecting all the books, and later on the 5 special ones too. 
Yup.
I'm spoiled like that.

He always matched the titles to whatever the alphabet was like Kidnapped King or Missing Mummy etc. 
Of course me being a complete freak that everything has to match (like seriously, if I have a pink pj shirt I better be wearing the same color pants at least, I just end up looking like a big blob of pink walking around haha) so that hit the weird OCD spot right away.

All that blabbering just to praise my title (I swear it just happened I actually didn't think of it being all Bs)  
CA-CHING. 




BAGS


So I've always been in love with the Celine luggage bags every since I first laid my eyes on them, of course owning them was pretty close to impossible since the reasons are as clear as crystal:
  1. Hard to find in Houston
  2. Impossible for a kid to pay for
  3. I have no where to wear it too

But I couldn't pass the opportunity when I saw one while walking to Neiman Marcus to exit the mall. 
It. Was. Perfect.
I thought I was never going to own it since the sales woman told me a couple came to look at it and asked to get it kept there for them to return later on in the day. 
I was jumping all over the place just to try to push my luck so I could somehow get the bag.
Long story short, I got it!


Don't mind me with the big bandaid and half curly half straight hair


I'm not the proudest person since I have to admit, with the money I made, I probably couldn't even afford to touch the bag let alone owe it.
So I'm just grateful that my parents let me have my graduation gift early.
THANK.YOU.SO.MUCH






Beaches



I've always been afraid of beaches ever since natural disasters happened ( bless the people who had to deal with it personally) but I have to say, I'm a big beach person though I may not like nature that much.
Beaches have always been more of a calm place where you can just sit and smell the salt and dig your feet into the sand.
Also I LOVE LOVE LOVE seafood.
Yes me.
The girl who can't say no to food, especially fresh food!

So in celebration to the bag, I decided to bring it to the beach. Maybe I'm a bit cray cray but I've been known to keep stuff well after years and years of using it so don't worry!



The wind was freezing my butt off but it was still perfect






Ten little piggies went to the beach.






Walked 2 miles to get to the restaurant. in FLIP FLOPS.
I cannot stress how stupid I was doing that and I'm just grateful I didn't have nasty splinters at the end of the day, just small baby ones!
The food was worth it though!






Perfect day honestly.
I can't think of a better view.

Of course I can't miss out ferry rides with seagulls pooping all over the place but let me tell you, white blobs are not the ideal thing to take photos of so I'll just leave that one as a mystery for now.
I promise myself to try to have a beach day at least once very 2 - 3 months since it's such a stress relief and it's really good for your body and soul to enjoy the fresh air and long walks instead of sitting in air conditioning all day.
I'm fortunate enough to live about an hour away from Galveston so I just wanted to use it to it's full advantage.




BOWLING 

I figured out I can be pro at something. Bowling.
NOPE.
NOT EVEN CLOSE.

I. S-U-C-K.

Even the guy at the place was like sorry maybe you're just not good at bowling after he tried to teach me how. It's fine since he put up the kids (under 12) fences for me to actually get some scores (sometimes I didn't even use that so HA.)
Not proud for sure but better than being the pathetic loser since everyone can see your score and giggle. Mind your own business people! I mean I do kinda sneak look at other people's scores and what they look like when they're playing and I don't know if it's just me but everyone looks super pro and actually get strikes.
I guess I just need more training before I can actually be able to say that I'm good at bowling.

Don't get me wrong, this happens to me in every sport, I thought mini golf was easy till I tried it and it turns out golf people need to make up another kind of name for a girl who takes 7-8 tries to get the ball into the hole. UGH.
well sucks to suck I guess.
Not that I'm being a sore loser or anything...




Nice bowling alley with friendly staff so I try to go every once in a while.
And yes Britney Spears Oops I did it again is playing.
I remember having to sneak watch Britney Spears as a kid since my mom wouldn't let me see it. Still ended up buying her live concert DVDs even though she refused to let me watch it.





So I guess that's my 3 Bs for this month.

The 5 Types Of Girls

Although people are their own individuals and it's hard to say that anyone is exactly the same as anyone else, I believe it's safe to say; everyone will fall under a category, whether it's just you, or you with a group of people who seem to be alike.

Throughout our entire lives, we meet, interact, love and even hate thousands, millions of people. It could just be a stranger you said hi to on the street, or it could be your childhood friend you've known since forever. Each face, no matter new or old is a new face; a new person.

It's been known that many guys nowadays are either complaining about their lack of relationships or just overwhelmed by how many they had or they're currently still facing. 

Honestly, I believe that there's a person for everyone, you may meet them at the right time if you're lucky, although some might not receive that luxury. 

Believe it or not, you could be standing face to face with the love of your life, but somehow fate (if you want to believe in such things) has a funny way of leading us down our paths. 
You could very well be stuck with the wrong person who you have thought to be "the one", later on finding out you were just blinded by love, it is your choice to work your way through, somehow find happiness; or you could let go and try something else.

No one can truly live your life for you. No one but YOU. YOURSELF.

Certainly the girl you meet could fall under many categories as venn diagrams but most certainly, it might not apply to every girl.



THE 5 GIRLS




1. The girl you secretly had a crush on.

          She was the girl you grew up with. She was the girl you teased on but wouldn't let anybody else hurt her. She was the one you would daydream in class. She was the girl you doodled instead of taking notes. No matter in what situation, she was the girl of your dream. Every time she smiled, the world stopped. The heavenly smell she had when she walked pass you. She was perfect. At least, to you, at that time. She wasn't "THE ONE" since you never 
She was the girl you never had the guts to ask out. You thought she would never say yes. 
Truly every guy has had this type of girl at least once in his life. No matter what happened, she was always the one you look back several years, several girlfriends down the way and still think she's perfect.
It would make sense that you never got to know her like the way you see your girlfriend now, all greasy, licking ice cream of a spoon while crying to some chick flick she begged you to watch with her. She could be in that position but that would destroy the perfect image you have of her in your head.
You never had the guts to ask her out or you never chose to ask her out, fearing what you thought might be a complete nightmare.
She's always the one you had a crush on, nothing more, nothing less.





2. The girl you thought was perfect.

          She's hot. She's cute. She's perfect for me. You told yourself, your friends. She was the one who always gave you winks when she walked facing you. She was the one who brought the notes in when you were sick. She was the one flirting with you through her texts. She was "THE ONE". 
Or so you thought. 
Life is funny how it turns out later on. From someone you fell madly in love with and was willing to do anything for, they turned into someone who you're trying to explain to yourself why did you EVER think this would work out. 
You could deny it. But after a few heartbreaks and maybe some shocking "I'm home early" moments, you figure out that she falls under this category. 
It's true. People change. Some completely do a 180 degrees switch. Some change a bit less. No matter how much you want to ignore it, you can't run away from your own mind. You thought she was perfect and your babies would be perfect too. I might have went a bit far but you get the point :)
People don't plan accidents and people most certainly don't plan on getting hurt. She hurt you, made you question your own heart and mind.
On the bright side, you learn better not to trust, not to give your heart to the wrong person. 





3. The girl who thought you were perfect. 

          She could be the girl sitting right behind you. She's the one who brings you brownies and cupcakes because she hopes you will pay attention to her. She's the one who goes to all your games, all your tournaments, not because she has to but because she wants to. She was "THE ONE".
Maybe not for you. 
You could've broken her heart. People take things for granted or maybe you two were just never meant to be. Maybe you two did end up together, in that case, you are truly lucky. 
One thing I've always heard is that: Choose the one that loves you, not the one you love.
But life doesn't work that way, you can't just take things for granted and not give anything in return, it might sound like a good plan but it won't work for long.
No matter how much they love you, how much they thought you were perfect, they will leave you. And mock my words, it never works out.
She was the one who saw you as the coolest person alive, even when you think you're lame. It's funny how maybe you could be laughing at her when she thought you were laughing with her. I'm not saying guys are jerks, just that sometimes they are clueless. 
So instead of complaining you don't have anyone who loves you. Look around, if you're lucky, she might still be there.





4. A girl. Just a girl. 

          I'm not implying this to all guys but from what I know, at least 8 out of 10 guys have had that girl. It's just a girl. No she's not THE ONE. You know it but you still go for her. 
For her looks? For the lust? For her money?
She wasn't what you wanted to end up with, she was more of a place to crash before you reached your last destination.
Normally, guys have this girl because they say they want to "experience different people". Some tell the girl and she could agree that it is just a fun relationship, both of you aren't expecting a diamond ring at the end of the road nor exchanging vows. It is your life, no one is judging and if it's your choice and you get to choose, good for you.
Thought some are truly mean in a way they do not tell the girl, instead, they tell their guy group, and maybe some close female friends. They mock the relationship and treat love as a thing so easily to achieve, as if it was a game, not true feelings. I do wonder if you get bad karma but again, some people have the best in luck, playing around with love while others still struggling to just get a small taste of it.
Just imagine your close female friends or family if they were just a pit stop in another guy's track, would you be mad? 





5. The one.

          Although writing the worlds are so simple, the journey we take to maybe, just maybe end up with that right person is terribly hard, sometimes even impossible.
She was the one who gave you butterflies in your stomach on your first date, your first kiss. She was the one packing your lunch. She was the one who gave up some part of her dream to start a life with you.
True, she does sound like that girl who thought you were perfect but she is so much more than that. She's also the one you think is perfect. She was the crush but somehow you knew that letting her slip away would be the most stupid decision anyone could make so you gave it a shot. In some extreme cases, she was also just a girl, a girl you thought would leave no impact on you. Now you can't sleep until you've kissed her good night. 
She was all of the above but somehow it just felt like she was just her. A person. An individual. 
You love her with all your heart when she cuddles up next to you asking about your day. She's the one who made you watch the chick flick but somehow she ended up sleeping half way through. You had your ups and downs. If it was truly meant to be, she made you laugh, you cry, you worried sick to your stomach because you haven't heard back from her, and maybe literally since she tried to cook something new. 
Is she perfect?
I would hope the answer I get in return is no, at least not all the time.
Funny how every girl wants to find the perfect guy, but let's be honest. Would you rather read a book where nothing happens or would you rather follow the story, have your heart-stopping moments and then get to your ending? I would think the same goes for many guys. 
She's the one you trust your kids with, or maybe she's just the one you trust to spend the rest of your life with. 
Fights happen and people change. But if she truly is THE ONE, every time you look back at her, you would see again the person you fell in love with, no matter how old you grew, or how bad the fight was. 
True that happiness doesn't always come to all of us, at least not to those who don't try. But if you think you found it, hold on tight to it because it doesn't come around easily. 






Of course the 5 types of girls could be implied to girls as well knowing whatever it is, as long as you're happy, it's perfectly fine :)

It is sad that people some people find what they are looking for but would gladly throw that away while others are still looking for just a bit of what they had. 
But at the end of the day, it is your life and however you chose to live it, whatever decisions you make made your life the way it is now.

One On One

Well, nothing beats going to see a movie... ON A WEEKDAY.
Like seriously, I hate standing in line waiting for tickets then waiting for popcorn then when you actually get to go in the dark room, you have to stumble across everyone to find out that the seat you wanted was taken just because you needed to put butter on your popcorn.
OH PLEASE
After 3 tries, I've decided to only go to the movies on a weekday. ONLY. ON. WEEKDAYS. Well not friday, since when does friday even count as a weekday? I get traffic trying to go home at 2pm. Like for real people?

I'm a big fan for cartoons (can't you guess by the way my artworks look?) so I always try to make time for the new cartoons coming out in theatre.
Sherman and Mr Peabody is not what you call new, since it has been around for a while but the idea is so cute.
"If I boy can adopt a dog, I see no reason why a dog can't adopt a boy"
BAM. Right there. Reason to go see movie. LIKE NOW!

Personally, I love dogs so this was truly the movie for me. As digital wise, the movie was smooth and the wayback felt like a big giant jawbreaker (Like from Ed Edd n Eddy - 90s)
I guess I am happy that people go see movies on weekends to spare people like me who go see movies on weekdays. Thanks a bunch!

Can't believe how pixelated this image turned out to be






All for now,

ETSY SHOP

I'M FINALLY DONE WITH IB ART FOREVER

Oh, you do not know how long I've been waiting to say that. 2YEARS
I mean it's not that I hate art, it just seemed like such hard work for a high school course that I won't get much college credit for.
Regardless, I'm done.
I just wanted to maybe send some of my printed art away and try to make some money for college (It's so damn expensive for international student, FYI to people who think about coming to the US for college)

So I opened (FINALLY) an ETSY shop to try to sell some of my artwork since I don't want to throw it away and I actually put a lot of effort into making it.

If you want to support me and buy my art that perfect :)
Even if you just wanna check it out it's perfectly ok too :P

link is HERE




Thank you for reading and supporting me :)

5PM

I finally did it.
I finally will post my font up on my own blog.
After many months of telling myself to put the link on..I finally did it.

HERE it is !



Click-y Click-y.
Like seriously.
It's a DaFont link and it's free.
I mean I guess I can always give you a preview of what it looks like.



I actually just did this for fun so it's free to use, I know I myself love free fonts ;)
Enjoy!

Just in case you were wondering what the name is so you can search it up;
it's 5PM
Why?
Because I finished the font at 5pm and I'm a terrible namer.
When I have kids, they will probably hate me for naming them weirdly.






50 Reasons To Date or Not To Date a "Neat Freak"

Everybody has their flaws and their blessings, like for instance, I recently figured out I've been stuck with the most neatest person you can ever find!

 I. AM. NOT. JOKING. AT ALL!

So it's not like I didn't know it before, I just didn't ever think it would be to this extent! 
I find it too funny that people could freak out over such things. Don't get me wrong though; I freak out over the smallest things! From a clashing outfit to comic sans (goose bumps just thinking about it).

It would make sense for me to write a full blog post about the pros and cons of being with a neat freak - or how they would probably prefer it.. "clean". 

                                                     
   KAY.


25 Pros To Dating A "Neat Freak"

  1. They will always clean the house/room for you.
  2. Everything will always be in order.
  3. Things will always be organized.
  4. Stuff in the place matches each other.
  5. You probably won't get a flu very easily since everything is disinfected. 
  6. No dusk bunnies on the floor.
  7. No yucky hair on the floor - or anywhere!
  8. Sinks/Toilets/Bathtubs will not have yellow stains.
  9. They will most likely scrub the toilet so you won't do it the "lazy" way.
  10. Laundry will always be fresh and folded.
  11. Dishes will be squeaky clean.
  12. Top of shelves or/and tall things will not be full of dusk.
  13. No spider webs. ever.
  14. No cockroaches or any nasty bugs. Thank the lord.
  15. Tables will not be sticky.
  16. Monitors will always be finger print free.
  17. Bed will be made.
  18. Cords will be organized and hidden out of sight.
  19. Chairs will be placed under the table.
  20. Shoes are alined.
  21. Laundry will be organized based on color/material.
  22. Foods are going to be thrown away when due.
  23. Trash will always be taken out before you can even smell it.
  24. You are never out of cleaning supplies.
  25. They won't make you clean anything, even if you do, they will go over it again..and again.

That was actually pretty fast since I have witnessed most of the things above. I am actually really thankful for everything since I am more of the lazy type that will only organize the stuff the way I want it but refuses to get down to scrub anything I sat on with my bare butt. (i don't know what I'll do without him.)



25 Cons To Dating A "Neat Freak"

  1. They think you're lazy.
  2. They think you're dirty, or more lovingly..not as clean as them.
  3. They move your stuff and you never can find it without asking them.
  4. When you ask them, they will give you a talk about out stuff lying all over the place.
  5. They often don't like pets or babies because of the mess.
  6. The bathroom usually smells like bleach for a whole day.
  7. The vacuum is on even if there's only a few cookie crumbs on the carpet.
  8. Furniture is often covered by something to prevent dusk. What are you? 90?
  9. Your house is like the cleaning isle in grocery stores.
  10. They refuse to let you buy random stuff. 
  11. They will most likely call you a hoarder when you ask for a reason to not buy random stuff.
  12. They throw alway your most treasured cargo pants from 1990s.
  13. They hate everything that has crumbs.
  14. They hate things that leave stains.
  15. The bed is made so you feel bad if you want to take a nap.
  16. Cords are hidden so you actually have to dig it up to unplug something.
  17. They hate it if you mess up the place after they clean it.
  18. They will resent you if you leave your stuff all over the place.
  19. Everything has to be their way.
  20. The house/room will smell like a hospital.
  21. Stuff will always be put in boxes with labels on them. You have to open a box to get to anything.
  22. You have to place things back after using.
  23. No smelly dishes allowed.
  24. They will probably have a stroke if you mess up anything after their cleaning spree.
  25. You can't leave finger prints on monitors. No touchy touchy.

Oh god that was actually a pain and I think I repeated some things a few times. I just feel really bad talking about the cons but what's true has to be said!

I just hope people realize that it doesn't matter what pros or cons it comes to dating a neat freak, or anyone that you truly think is good for you, and others think that too. People are actually never perfect though you might think that when you're too blinded to ever see else wise. Doesn't mean you don't love them, just try to look more into the pros than into the cons. :)

50 reasons to dating a neat freak. 
If you have more than 10 on both lists, you are probably a neat freak. 
Thank you, really, for being here, helping all the lazy ass people live in a clean environment. haha. 








all for now,

Procrastinating

So it's finally my last semester EVER in high school.
Yes I know that sounds pretty lame has it's only high school but honestly,
I . C A N ' T . W A I T

I've actually have not been doing anything on my blog since 2012 so I guess it's just really hard to sum up a whole two long years.
So many things have changed, from moving to different places, meeting different people.. and of course gaining weight because I need good food shots for my Instagram account.

Honestly moving to Houston isn't my choice but I grew to love this place. 
Meeting new people is for sure awesome but getting to create new bonds with new people is unbeatable. 
If you ask me what to do here, all I could tell you is shopping and going out to eat.
I've spent most of my time trying to find new restaurants in town, building up my taste journal so I've gotten super duper..and by that I mean Norbit fat.
And I know you people now a day only watch HD movies so let me refresh your memory.
THIS. IS. NORBIT:


BOOM. 
Well I guess she just needs some moisturizing..ok maybe a bucket. 

And maybe.. I exaggerated a tiny bit. I'm like 140 pounds ( ~60kg) right now which is not too good for Asians honestly. You can't pull a fat one off, Asian chicks. Seriously.
The thing is I'm too busy for exercising (Kay. Maybe lazy too)
SO.
I made up my mind. I only go eat out on weekends. 
Um.
That didn't work out so well.
FACEPALM

But that's not the point.
The point is I'll be updating the food places I go to every week (hopefully) to see what Houston has to offer. 

So it wasn't very current but it was within the 1 month span that I went to this chic Downtown cafe style kind of restaurant for a saturday date night. It was freezing I have to tell you that. But I took the chance to sit on the patio which was literally gorgeous. Well to what I've been seeing in Houston.

I haven't gotten enough to buy a DSLR so brace with my iPhone quality photos. 

I actually had no idea what I ordered since I just went with what was suggested but I'm certain it was lamb racks with asparagus and potato with cheese. I'm sure they have a fancy name for what I just listed but I like to get straight to the point. I was absolutely perfect.  

We didn't really make reservations so we didn't get the best seats that day but I'm actually happy that I got these seats so I'm not really bummed out.
I froze towards the end of the night so of course being the Asian I am, I ordered black tea with half and half. Guilty of making an awesome milk tea as charged (that's what people tell me so I'm gonna take a minute to be proud of myself)

I was kinda stuffed but I'm a fat kid that can't skip dessert so I always have that empty part in my stomach to order something sweet.
I was debating between the red velvet and the crème brûlée but we decided on the orange Crème brûlée since it made more sense that we could share (chocolate hater...BOO
Let's just say it wasn't the best of anything.
I'm not sure if I was just really full or if I just didn't like that orange texture mixed between the creamy buttery original taste.
I would definitely try it again on a more spacious tummy.

I love the setting but not so sure about the dessert I ordered.

This is for sure one of my most favorite places yet and I'll make sure to return when I have the time and maybe with a less camera shy buddy ;)


Well this wasn't named procrastinating for nothing. 
Back to homework. Boring. HATE IT. Homework


For now,
