The Fight for My Best Friend

The Fight for My Best Friend
Above is the link for Hershey’s go fund me. I’ve updated it since last week as of today. My best friend went to heaven on the 9th.

The update :
On Thursday, April 9 2015 Hershey went to heaven. As we were on our way to pick my baby up, the surgeon called saying she was having some trouble 30 minutes prior to us being on the way. Once there, she was wheeled on a gurney with IV fluids running and she had trouble breathing. Emotions flooded and I started to cry. She was very much in pain and struggling. They gave us an option to try to give her a blood transfusion over night and give her oxygen. We didn’t know how we were going to pay for it as the bill preview was about $2000 but we decided we were going to fight one more day. When we told the assistants our decision, they were starting her oxygen and working with her in the back. Fight till the end or fight till tomorrow was how we thought at the moment. I wanted Hershey to know her family will fight for her until the end. An hour passed and the vets told us that she was crashing and not responding to anything. At that time I knew something worse was going to happen. They said they were going to keep her alive as long as possible to get anyone who wanted to see her there ASAP. The final decision was to let her “sleep” and wake up in heaven. We were there kissing and hugging her as she left us for her “real home” in heaven. It’s been hard for the past 2 weeks and the house has been empty and so has the back seat of my truck. That day, I felt like I failed my best friend. Our family was seeing shadows of her, hearing her bark at 3am and I even thought she was breathing next to me one morning as she has a very distinct breathing pattern when sleeping. It’s taken us a little to accept that Hershey is no longer in pain and is better now and eating whatever she wants.

Yesterday, I picked up her urn and paw print impression. The clay had some of her hair in it. I almost broke down. As soon as I got home, I baked her impression and put up her urn on the shelf we purchased Saturday night. When I was buying that, I never thought I would have ever had to. However, although I know she is actually in heaven, at least her ashes are home with us.

This morning: Her surgeon woke me up to tell me the results came back and it definitely was Hemangiosarcoma. The mass was so big it’s probably been there for a while. The biopsy of her liver showed hepatitis as well. Animal instinct is to hide illness as a survival tactic. My baby survived through so much and we didn’t even know until the end. She fought for her life to be with us as did we. We fought a good fight. Hershey lived a long, healthy and loving life. I will never get over it but I will heal eventually. If you have any pets, make sure they have a good life with you. They are your family and best friends. Hershey will be in my heart until even after I die. We grew up together and we still will. We’re just in 2 different places until we reunite and my life on earth or up will finally be complete.

I will keep this campaign up as I still am not sure how I am going to pay for the remaining bills. The amount I owe may seem small and petty to others but I am in a different stance in this part of my life. If anyone wants to contribute still to Hershey’s bill fund, it is extremely appreciated.

Where the hell has Confection1nfection been? Part 2

ImageSo the ending of my birthmas fandom, this is just going to be a post related to whatever random things I’ve been up to.

This is a ring holder my sister inlaw got. At their house, they have an elephant next to their sink to put their rings when washing dishes. Each time I came over there I got super excited and even thought about jacking it a couple of times (yeah right from my own bro’s house? that’s just wrong! Well, we’ll say BORROWING lol). My sis inlaw heard me squeal over that shit multiple times and BAM I got one! 

ImageThese cute ass mugs have been in my mom’s Altima’s trunk for about a month or two. I got these for 75cents each while on a Salvo’s Wednesday trip. Shit it’s Wednesday right now and if I wasn’t sick as fuck and looking like I cried for years on end while my muscles were all achy breaky then I’d be thrifting atm -_- I’ve already missed a couple of days at work. I’ve been sleeping all damn week and I woke up earlier choking and now I can’t go back to sleep so hell, why not finish this big ass update on me eh? Anyway, back to these cute ass mugs! So the main reason why I got them is because of the ridged indents on the side for le fingers and of course, the beautiful jade-esque color. A lot of people I know get disgusted by knowing their drinking out of a glass or eating off of a plate that came from someone else’s possession…well shit. Did you sanitize a plate before eating at someone else’s house or go out to eat with your friends while your drunk ass is downing shots of patron that had slut lips nuzzled against the same rim that you’re licking whatever salt left over there is? I think not.  Main rule for thrifting: CLEAN YO SHIT. Image

About a weekish ago, my brother asked me to go apartment hunting with him and of course, I always say yes. Yes, I go for the ride. Who the hell wouldn’t? We ended up in Newport News, Va and came across this gas station/food mart. Again, ya’ll know I LOVE gas station food. The sign made me O_O foreal and I just had to try the gizzards out. ImageSee that crispy, greasy, fatty goodness? $5 for a large drink and those gizzards. Automatically came with Texas Pete (ooohweeee my fav) and yes, the sign told the truth, it is THE SHIT. Gross, gross cuticles…don’t mind them -_- Washing dishes with no gloves will do it.

Image

While in that part of Hampton Roads, near Buckroe Beach there was a “Dollar Bargain” store. As cheap as us siblings can be, we were like HEEYAL YEAH LEZGO! Doodadooo *walking walking* Yeah man, the inside was no normal dollar tree. They had an array of random things and remember, Random=Awesome. Those nail polishes were $1 each. Unlike some people I know IRL and online, I honestly don’t give a fuck if my polish is “upscale” or “high end” or “fancy as shit with long lasting power”. If you truly “LOVE” nail varnishes, you’d know you don’t just stick to ONE EXPENSIVE ASS KIND. Honest truth? I love trying all brands. It doesn’t have to have “long lasting” in the description because I change my nails up more than once a week for the most part.If I do plan on keeping the same stuff on, I’ll just pair it up with a good top coat. It’s common sense really. I ain’t gotta be FANCY all of the time.I mean, of course the way it comes out of the bottle and onto the brush and onto the nails is important but then again, it’s nothing a little bit of thinner can’t cure. I mean shit, it was a dollar, why complain? Most of the time, you seriously get what you pay for. However these “I.C.E” (Not Pure Ice) polishes weren’t half bad for a buck.

These are some things I did to try em out:ImageImage

Don’t mind my ugly ass toes please.

Image

As I’ve stated before, I LOVE alligator clips! This particular one happened to be from that shop from Buckroe and of course, it was a buck. I know it’s going to break in like a month but I’ll love it while it lasts lol.

Image

And just to throw this in, a few hours after I did that pastellish design uptop, I swapped to this messy tentacle design in which the next morning, I swapped colors and design once again lol…don’t judge me!

Image

Sooo apart from all those random things I’ve posted about my time apart from blogging, I’ve also started working at a Tactical Shop. During my lunch, I was eating that lovely portable children’s yogurt and I’m not stating the name for certain purposes buuut uh..yeah….It’s not always the best to give us humans the option to be “creative” because people like me will end up filling in the blanks with shit like that…JUST SAYING. 

Anyway so the ending of this post is, I’ve been sick as fuck for this past week. I had to type this particular post up in parts with hitting the save button multiple times because I kept falling asleep after I said I couldn’t fall back asleep. Well shit, I’m awake once again and can’t breath through mah face so here I am, finishing this up. Hopefully I’ll get time and more topics to dish out onto this but for now, ya’ll are just gonna have to deal with this! 

Thank you guys for your patience and support! ❤ Confection1nfection

Happy Birthmas Tooo Meeee (well sorta) Part 2. Kanpai!

bday 22 019

Last part of my bday is last night (Thursday the 7th). We all (Mom, dad, oldest bro and his wife, other bro and his girl, my boyfriend and I)  decided on going to Sushi King for dinner. Btw, Sushi King is a sushi buffet that is cooked to order, not sitting under a lamp all night. Quite pricey, but def worth it! When we got there, people were leaving left and right because the wait was ridiculous! They told us 15 minutes however ended up being 30.  While waiting in their smell good room (the outer portion of the walkway with the candy machines and claw crane game that always smells like fresh peeled oranges) , I wasted lots of money trying to get a stuffed star which I failed at. We took a closer look at the machine as I was getting angry and realized the faces of the people on the sticker LOL so evil looking!

The following pics are when we finally got in 😀

My parents decided to order a copy of those plates so we were so full after we were super duper sleepy >.> I didn’t get to post all of the other pics of the food since everyone was kinda everywhere and I wasn’t going to jump over the table to take pics of everyone’s food lol. We all ordered hibatchi, teriyaki, yakisoba, fried rice, tempura, shumai and the list goes on. ALL UNLIMITED WHOOOO!!!!! However since my father as I’ve mentioned has been in the Japanese restaurant biz for decades, he of course critiqued the food compared to how he cooks as a chef lol

Versatile Blogger Award *Squeals* (obviously lengthy as hell)

Image

I’ve been nominated by Galaxy Star 7 for “The Versatile Blogger award”. I woke up to an email with her telling me I was at like 2am and I practically squealed and almost knocked my bf unconscious in excitement (no domestic violence here! haha).

Ya’ll are awesome bloggers!<3 Everyone I’m following and everyone that’s been reading along my posts, ya’ll are the save button to my document :]

Now, it says to state 7 things about me… hmmm…Image

  1. I have a very fat dog that I love ever so dearly. Her name is Hershey like the choco company. She’s a tricolored bagel (basset beagle mix). Black-Dark chocolate, Brown-Milk chocolate & White-White chocolate. She’s one of the smartest dogs I’ve ever seen IRL lol. She’s a good guard dog, however I’m pretty sure if a robber had bacon in their pocket she’ll love them forever. This sounds weird but…I met Hershey online…I was younger and looking for a pet and saw her with a different name and everything. My local SPCA told us that another family wanted her. We kept checking up and the day the fam was supposed to take her, they never showed up and lo and behold it was meant to be<3 A lot of people call her Splinter San from TMNT because, well, aside from Snoopy, a mini calf, and pony, she sure as hell looks like Master Splinter haha. Anytime she hears loud noises and hears anyone yelling/fighting, she runs into an empty room until it’s quiet again. Yes, she HATES fighting! She also understands Tagalog alongside of English lol. She’s my PIC all of the time!

316080_2313071266992_385850_n She’s always part of my survival kit during our Virginia hurricanes lol

2. I’m Filipino mixed with JDM blood. A lot of people usually can’t tell what I am but then again I don’t generally look the same everyday depending on how I do up myself lol. People usually name every other asian when looking at me. I’ve even gotten a couple of discounts at other local asian stores for the simple fact that they thought I was one of them (shiiiiiiiit I ain’t complainin’!) I used to speak japanese when I was a kid because my mom’s mom was a japanese teacher back in the day however my japanese blood comes from my mom’s dad’s side. Tagalog was generally my first language and then english. I do not have a filipino accent however when I speak english.

3. I was born in Raleigh, North Carolina but about 3 days after I popped out we moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia. I’ve been here ever since and ain’t never moved anywhere else. As VA is still considered the south (and where murrica started), I randomly have a country accent that pops out when it likes to. A lot of people that talk to me on the phone and then see me in person always gives me funny looks when they realize I’m an asian girl with a southern twain haha.

4. When I have to call places to check hours and prices, I generally use a different voice when I speak JUST FOR THE FACT THAT I do NOT like it when people hear my actual voice in a store and realize that I’m the dumbass who called and depending on their moods that day, are shitty to me. Yes, I can do different voices lol. Call me weird but oh well.

5. 486637_4051617249555_685198460_nI grew up being surrounded by male friends and 2 brosephs. My oldest brother used to pay me in slurpees to help him fix his cars back in the day. He used to own a hatchi roku trueno (aka 1986 corolla) and an AE92 and he used to drift. Since I was around him so much, for my 15th birthday (you know a little later eligible for a permit) I got a Nissan 240sx s13 chuki hatchback. I then learned how to slide later on and even ended up with yet ANOTHER s13 zenki hatchback. Notice my Hello Kitty JDM driver’s badge decal and my Chanel purse, yes those were mine before I sold them for my Pathfinder haha. Although I miss my “car life”, I happen to enjoy my 4×4 when it’s shitty weather time. I also am a gamer. I love MMOs and FPSs. If I’m not out and about, I’m stuck on the computer grinding/farming. At the moment I’m playing an MMO called Tera Online.

I’m glad that I’ve acquired these guy likings. I have a wonderful boyfriend for years now that I have a lot in common with. We ended up talking to each other initially about cars and gaming and look, we went from friends to best friends and lovers. Although no relationship is perfect, we work pretty hard together. If you want something, you MUST work for it. We’re not perfect and no one else is either. .From today on, we’ll be discovering even more things together 🙂  It’s nice to share favorites and hobbies with people you love. I’ll save you in game and in real life anyday! ❤ you!

6. I FUCKING LOVE FOOD. I eat and cook ALL THE TIME. I honestly don’t give much of a damn if I look perfect in a bikini when I die. I seriously don’t. I’m healthy enough to be alive atm just the way I am and look fabulous in my outfits JUST THE WAY I AM. I mean, everyone wants to “tone up” sometimes but at this point, I think I’m alright. There are other people who are way skinner than me but couldn’t pull off looks that I can so HA. I started cooking by learning to make rice when I was like 5. My dad has been a teppanyaki chef since before I was born and I’ve been using chopsticks without the noob fix at the top with a rubber band for decades. I cook a plethora of food. American, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Italian and the list goes on. I’m not really one to measure when I’m cooking either. I just go by flaaaavaaa and BAM I cook awesome shit. Btw, them cheeks you see in my pics? Yeah, even if I became anorexic, they will never go away.

7.482967_4071501026637_640659679_n  A lot of people wonder about that double outline star tattoo that I have on the left side of my chest. A lot of people also don’t know the story behind it. The 5 points of the star represent both of my parents ,my 2 siblings and I. The star itself represents the north star which “guides you home”. “Home is where the heart is” which is why it’s towards the left.  As inkers/inkees know, black is easiler lasered off. Blue is definitely not. No matter what happens to break us down (black ink), we’re still strong to be together no matter wtf happens (blue ink).I thank God each  and everyday for what I have instead of bitching about the crap I don’t.  So no guys, I did not get that tattoo to be a slut. If anyone wants to think that, let it be.

Well guys that’s all for my lengthy ass post! Thanks again to everyone reading! Now my sons and daughters…GO FORTH.

It’s Friday Ya’ll!( no but srsly)

In the words of Rebecca Black…’IT’S FRIDAY, FRIDAY GOTTA GET DOWN ON FRIDAYYYYY’ oh goodness LOL. Anyway, in my area of the 757, a lot of people have been anticipating the wonderful flutters of snow falling. After 2 months of knowing pretty much it isn’t going to snow, last night around 2am I saw flakes fall on the chairs and the bbq grill (yes, here we q it up no matter what time of the year).

Image

Woke up and BAM the sun laughed and melted it all -__-. However, the temperature definitely stayed. So today I’m going to have to layer and layer and layer it up!  Heading to get my eyebrows done in a few and later tonight I’ll be heading out for a cousin dinner after not seeing them after so long. I’ll be taking pics of my outfit tonight and posting my ordeal late night or tomorrow. Whether it’s snowing or not in your area, stay safe! It always seems as if the dummies come out more so on the weekend lol.
