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 😀

Misago, temaki, Sea angel roll, spider roll, dynamite roll, christmas roll, orchard roll, las vegas roll. All was friggin amazing. 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). I’d like to personally thank you Galaxy Star 7 for all of the wonderful ideas you’ve given me for my nails as we share the same interest and styles<3

The official rules for TVBA is as follows:

If you are nominated, you’ve been awarded the Versatile Blogger award.

  •  Thank the person who gave you this award. That’s common courtesy.
  •  Include a link to their blog. That’s also common courtesy — if you can figure out how to do it.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly. ( I would add, pick blogs or bloggers that are excellent!)
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award — you might include a link to this site.

I’ve copied and pasted this from the actual Versatile Blogger blog so if you’d like to check that out, go ahead!

As it states, choose 15 that I’ve recently discovered. As others may choose people that are relatively blog noobs like myself, I haven’t discovered newer noobs yet but will be on a mission to do so. However, the bloggers that I have chosen are people that I read on every day and have filled my hunger for daily reading. From poetry to fashion, they are my glass of southern sweet too (and don’t I love my sweet tea!).

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.

Preggo Thrifting (not for me lol)

My friend that has an eggo that is preggo had called me yesterday and I went with her to look for maternity clothing. We went to the mall and ended up going into the store Motherhood. As stupid as this sounded while we were looking around, I said “…I’ve never been up close and personal with this shit. Why the hell do the pants look like they’re made for  permanent boxer showing and pants sagging?!” All she did was laugh at me in a “Bitch I’m pregnant so stop asking stupid questions” type of tone LOL. The sales lady and I were helping her find some preggo pants so as she was in the dressing room, we were intermittently bringing her a buncha pants. She called me in there and was like “Dude…buy one get one 1/2 off denim..this shit is like $50 alone!” I then finally told her about my thrifting excursions as she’s never been. I then explained to her all the good points to thrift and why she should save hella money since she’ll only be wearing these for months and then swapping out anyway. She ended up only buying a cute mommy dress as the sales associate that helped us just face palmed lol.

We ventured off to my favorite Salvation Army. When we parked, I warned her about the smell since I’m sure her hormones and senses have risen quite a lot and she was like “…wait what?” Eff it, we went in and  I helped her look around. She found a pair of preggo pants, BRAND NEW WITH TAGS for $2 and we found her a couple of flowy tops. Her total came up to $18.00.  Along side that, I found le boyfriend an awesome ass find. $3 for a Dolce & Gabbana button up 😀

2013-02-17_12-30-24_594Excited, homegirl wanted to stop in at the DAV that was actually across the street from the Salvo’s we were at. I was KIIINDA dreading to go due to the fact that everything is super duper crowded there and the dressing rooms must be asked to open first and their prices from the last time I went there were ridunkulous, I said fuck it let’s go. To my surprise, the prices were dropped waaay more than they ever were before! Hmm maybe I’ll go back lol. She found her some really nice preggo denim for a whopping $1.00!  The one main thing I do appreciate about that specific DAV thrift is that they have a “boutique” area for clothing that has it’s tags on it and are higher end.

Here’s a pair of white MK pants that had brand new tags. All I could think about was “Damn…these people throwing away all kindsa goodies” $15, Retail $100. Too fat for these, otherwise I woulda snagged em’.

I haven’t been thrifting for myself in 3 weeks, and again, I came home with nothing for myself, just the bf. However, my friend and I compared prices and the amount of money she WOULDA spent was pretty much $200 over what she actually spent thrifting. I think I found myself a new thrifting partner! Although our little preggo adventure was in the snow and sleet, we got home safely with our finds.

Sorry for the lengthy post guys! Thanks for reading! ❤

Nails,Nissan,Nike, No thrifting & love notes.

For the ones out there who do visit my posts, sorry for this late ass post! I haven’t really had much of a chance over the weekend to type anything up, however I did snap a few pics of what I’ve done lol (I always have time for pics!) -_- I just realized that I also missed my Sally’s Beauty club freebie! I had an email for a free $10.99 ORLY polish or treatment if I spent $3 (and I also had a $5 free coupon) D: aw damn!

The pic above is my friend’s nails. I did them the other night and as you can tell, it’s just a simple french with ring finger accents while holding a bottle. Yup, for you spritz enthusiasts that is a Bath and body works bottle in “Sparkling Blackerry Woods”. Shiet, I just realized how great their newer bottle shapes work for modeling nails!

Yeah, I got rid of my pokeball nails and swapped with these BUT I’m about to get rid of these too lol. Geebuz, I’m like ADHD with nails.

Speaking of pokeball…I made that card out of 3 pieces of construction paper and some elmer’s glue for my bf included for a Vday/Monthsary card 🙂

And lastly, yesterday was one of our monthsaries (Every 10th as our anniversary date is October 10th, 2010), this is what we did. We sat on the driveway(Brown nike him, black nike me) doing things to his Xterra. This was our version of “quality time” along with dinner after we got all fresh and so clean clean. (lol don’t hate)

Again, sorry for the late ass posts! As for my thrifter friends, I haven’t been thrifting in 2 weeks! Ahh it’s been killin’ me! However, I’m making it a point to go this Wednesday so as soon as I do, I’ll let ya’ll know my finds if any 😀
