Year resolution

As always I always had to write year resolution every year... and still pushing the getting to the gym thing to NEXT YEAR... I have been pushing this one from 2014... How crazy is that??

Recently I had a very bad headache that I have never had before.. So i was afraid that I inherited my father's Cholesterol since I love seafood so much. Still am not taking any blood test BUT I do change my diet a bit, I started eating oatmeal instead of white rice. I also had been taking fish oil and Vitamins.. ( It's crazy how age forces you to change your life style/ diet)

My ultimate recipe for oatmeal:
dark choclate bark

I heard adding Goji berry is soo yummy BUT I haven't tried it yet

So my employee thought I was 25 years old KEkE ( some people just don't age LOL )

I had a hard time finishing my design since the latest project ( I have two currently)  is either very boring and the other one is super difficult... ( I spend two whole days and only finish one sample)

And of course have been pushing OLA the chubby Mermaid that never seem to be finish!!!!

WHY? because I wanted it to be soo good that It's hard for me to finish it...

You know that saying that people never fail because they never try?
Welll I fail many many times in my life and that's totally acceptable, with Ola however, I cared so much about Ola that I wanted it to be better than my other books published.. you get that? I keep thinking If I should make two versions: one with watercolor and the other one with vector so I don't have to go back and forth, thinking ;" It could have been this kind of mood with vector." or " If only I'm doing this in vector, this scene could be done in different way.."

So I apologize that Ola has once again been pushed back in the list of things I should finish this year LMAO

Black Out..

I was having this presentation with two ladies, and was about to close the deals. She had said her needs and quantities and we were choosing the final colors for her and suddenly I black out... The ladies panicked one lady massaged my neck and the other get me a drink...I screwed up BADLY.

So in the end, I didn't get the deal :(

Howeverrrrr I will reach out to her next year and send her samples again LOL

No Internet No Life

Just when we arrived in China, there's a desk selling phone number with 4GB internet. and I was suspicious half way through when I asked them if 4GB is the speed or the amount of internet I can use. No answer. 
Anyway they took our passport and make us wait in line, there's like 5 group of people with us also purchasing sim card and internet data. 

By the time we arrived at the hotel, we realized that we have been scammed that the number is only to call and no internet data whatsoever. 

on our last day in china, we went to the mall and when we were about to go home, it started raining. 
We waited for the rain to stop but it just gotten worse. I asked my dad if he can checked the weather application on his phone to check what time the rain would stop. 
He said that there's no internet how is he supposed to check the weather...

In the end, no internet no life XD


So I was excited in launching my new book hohoho
The mermaid is coming

I have a couple of other things in mind, ( like my familia business ) so of course the pace is kind of slow...
But I'm working on it!!!

Unlike Remi, this one has no promotion coming cause I focus on the content more.
I also focused on the writings more. ( cause I realize the critics focus on the writings such as grammar and punctuation)

So YEP YEP, feeling inspired. hopefully I got some promotions to show you guys soon!!

Last night my friend share a great news, that she was pregnant and I'm so happy for her.
And not so happy for my self.. here I am loosing another hang out buddy, she said that her husband would prefer that she didn't leave the house very often during her pregnancy, we also cancel a lot of our plan because of it. I wouldn't want to travel with her either, because, you know it is a very sensitive moment for her, and she has to really take care of her body.

I remember making friends with a mom, back in San Francisco... Geez, you have no idea, when your friend asked you a favor :"Kristin, can you please take care of my 3 years old son?"
That was like a nightmare, I remember the first day of Spring break: I went with her to Academy of science with her son, and the next day, having to baby sit... and Voila!! I got sick for the rest of my spring break....
I couldn't even get up and purchase medicine at Walgreen.. I was THAT sick..
And when my friend knew about it? she wasn't even sympathetic, she just tell me :" Welcome to my world, baby."
"Only two days, and you're already down??" daring me, like that...
So I made up my mind that when my friends turn into mothers, it's time to set up some boundaries...

I can help you move in, move out, listen to your relationship junks, help you buy groceries, company you to lunch, brunch, dinner, and outlet shopping, cycling, trekking, etc.. BUT never ask me to take care of a baby!!

oh, btw i loved my baby nephew so much..LOL #obsessed

BTW I just set up Netflix in my room and I am so not going anywhere...(cause Netflix helped me to be more productive, you know, like sleeping...)

Recently I watched ALI WONG... SHE IS SO FUNNY...
I also watched The End of The F*cking World..
in love with Dark Comedy..

Also, this one is not on Netflix, But I also loved 'The Lobster' ... super dark love (not so) comedy.
 ( I wouldn't really say this is a comedy, though... it gets really gloomy and dark, Maybe because I watched it with a friend that just recently ended his five years relationship with his girlfriend due to money issue)

Yep, Thinking about it, it was really gloomy back then, 2 or 3 years ago, I was left behind, he was left behind. I was smart enough though, not to jump into a relationship with him, because that would be f*cked up... He would tell me all sort of melancholic stories, of how he moved to the State. That he tried paranormal, psychic, fortune teller, etc. All kinds of girls he dated. Which is super interesting.

I remember one night, it was one of my last few nights in San francisco. We went to watched a movie, and it was just the two of us, late at night. I don't remember what movie we were watching, what I know is that he was talking about a fortune teller that he met years ago. The fortune teller just looked at his face and started writing things down. One of the things that the fortune teller wrote is  that,  when he moved to the State that he won't came back to his hometown anymore ( which is true) that he would meet a woman with a very beautiful eyes ( which is also true, his girlfriend of 5 years has very beautiful eyes). And then he started talking about going to psychic and getting into a state unconsciousness, and started remembering his past reincarnation... (which to me sound like hoax)

Anyway, on our way back home, he say to me that his story about the fortune teller hasn't finished yet. That there's bits of it that he hesitate to share with me. ( the Uber driver slows down WTF)
Obviously I acted like a child filled with curiosity.. " what, what, what... tell me now!!"
"And the fortune teller told me that there's a guy that has always stayed by my side... his initials is A"
I'm like  "WHO?"
"Oh, I think what he meant was my late grandfather, his initials is A"

It was really late at night, and we were in front of my apartment, at Inner Richmond, cold and foggy.
( and  I live alone) you have no idea how scary that was for me..

Anyway, I think it is OK to share this story, since it has been years, and It's not like I ever gonna share names here..
