Damn haha… Belle and her ban­gin’ bangs! =P Oh the mem­o­ries…

PS. Found the vid through a blog called Japan Probe.

Thank God it’s mid-November

After a few weeks off from work to vis­it and expe­ri­ence Japan with an awe­some bunch of friends, things have picked up both at work and at home. Don’t you just like it when you come back to work and you receive over 400 emails? Besides try­ing to find the time to do laun­dry and pro­cess­ing the pho­tos I’ve tak­en from the trip, I’m still try­ing to not think about Japan too much. But when you very much enjoyed an expe­ri­ence, it’s hard not to rem­i­nisce and reply all the fun stuff that you did. The thing I miss the most would prob­a­bly be the food. Oh man… the food!

Any­ways, besides try­ing to process and upload pho­tos, clean my room, do laun­dry, etc. I’m try­ing to get ready in sell­ing or tran­si­tion­ing my Accord to Gab­by. Its lease is up ear­ly Decem­ber. I did­n’t know what to do, whether to buy it out from Hon­da, return it or get a new car/SUV. I’ve tak­en great care of it and vice-ver­sa. So what bet­ter way to let go of it than to have some­one you know take over. This way, you feel at ease see­ing some­thing sen­ti­men­tal be tak­en care of by some­one who appre­ci­ates it. Well, I hope things go as plan so I may get a new one soon—I’m think­ing of the Pilot. What you think? See me rollin’ in one?

I think it’s a good invest­ment if I get one as I don’t dri­ve that much dur­ing the week­days so I save on gas and mileage. That, and I’ll be able to go up the moun­tain a bit eas­i­er this upcom­ing sea­son, which I hope will be a good one. Any­ways, time to do some catch­ing up. I’ll leave you with a bless­ing that my aunt (from Nor­walk) sent me this morn­ing:

May today there be peace with­in.
May you trust God that you are exact­ly where you are meant to be.
May you not for­get the infi­nite pos­si­bil­i­ties that are born of faith.
May you use those gifts that you have received, and pass on the love
that has been giv­en to you….
May you be con­tent know­ing you are a child of God…
Let His pres­ence set­tle into your bones, and allow your soul the free­dom
to sing, dance, praise and love.
It is there for each and every one of us.

God Bless You All!

Friday Before Next

I’m just excit­ed about Japan along with oth­er peeps. Less than 4 days to go. I’ve been try­ing to just be healthy this past week; not to men­tion, clean up every­thing in my room so I can pack and just go dri­ve down tomor­row for LA. That, and tie up any loose ends regard­ing projects both for work and free­lance.

Any­ways, here’s some­thing to make your Fri­day-work­day go by faster—TGIF!

Cat, Kancho and Japan

So, Joe­ma­ma had to back out of our Japan Dis­cov­ery Tour in Novem­ber. How­ev­er, we were for­tunte enough to have Cat come along and join in on the fun. Mean­while, I guess she was talk­ing to Ryan about it and I guess they had a con­ver­sa­tion about “kan­cho”. She did­n’t know what it was… till now:

[15:06] cat: ryan said i can’t play kanchu? w/the big boys yet
[15:06] me: haha
[15:06] cat: what’s it called?
[15:06] me: kan­cho
[15:06] cat: oh yeah, i’m gonna look that up right now
… (sec­onds lat­er)
[15:07] cat: ewww! i don’t want to play, i just looked it up on wikipedia!
