#DateNight @FaithandFlower #DTLA

I had to go to my CPA’s office because of an amendment tax file I had to do, so we decided to have dinner out.

We stopped by Beer Belly, but it was closed. They’re having a company dinner, which I’m so behind. Employers should totally treat out their employees.

We were scrambling to figure out where to go driving through #KTOWN when I saw Nancy’s #ig.

#FaithandFlower raw bar.

I checked with #opentable and got a reservation.

To my surprise, I saw my friend Stephane who greeted us and welcomed us to his new place.

The restaurant was exactly to my taste. Aesthetically exquisite in every detail and corner of the space.

I said hello to Nancy and her hubby Sam and sat down for a fun dinner with my Bear.

I wanted the rose from the ‘Fizz’ category but when it arrived it was flat. The server came back with the correct drink in the coup glass.

I was contemplating on either the $19 brut rose or the $9 champagne, I left it up to Bear to decide.

I did say, I could have two glasses with the cheaper one. :P

Bear chose the brut rose for me. ;)

Thank you Stephane for the complimentary dishes and absinthe drink!

I can’t wait to go back… I need to go back!

#EasterSunday

I slept most of the am and afternoon.

Bear wanted to go hit balls and I needed some subjects to shoot.

Only reason I went. He actually pulled over the side of the fwy for me this time

20140420-190209.jpg

Then to the market cause he’s going to make me dinner!

Parked behind us when we got out. Fellow #Italia~

20140420-190714.jpg

Still getting used to bringing bags.

20140420-190825.jpg

#Veuve was from hubby. We got the #chandon today. I’ll drink the cheapest.

20140420-190930.jpg

Tonight’s recipe.

20140420-191056.jpg

20140420-191119.jpg

First I start with this while the champagne chills.

20140420-191231.jpg

I was able to get two subjects today. I still need about seven.

Need 10 for the final but want to have more, just in case.

I tried to get Bear to take a photo of me taking a photo on the side of the freeway but he refused.

He’s ring super cautious, he doesn’t want me to die, hello?

:)

It would have been cool.

So Bear is cooking now and he asks that I not be in his way. So I cleaned the bathroom but as I was bending over, my body chain broke.

I need to lose weight.

Tonight is my last #hoorah. I need to do Jim ASAP everyday.

I’m suppose to start tomorrow.

#FinalProject #StreetArt

I had Bear come with me while I found subjects for my school project.

Los Angeles isn’t as dangerous as Bear made it seem while we were out.

Honestly I would have liked to stopped on the freeway and taken the photo so the subject would be eye level, but Bear wouldn’t let me.

I’ll have to do it on my own 😛

Thanks to Jeff who loaned me his 35mm camera for this semester.

#BNO Boobies Night Out

Our friend Hana was attending an opening reception for Werkartz and we decided to join in. Free booze and drink, I’m there!

We got there early and arrived in Uber of course, we were a bit lost but finally arrived.

Grabbed a drink, sat and talked. Tried to network but there were too many people and I only knew Hana, Joanna and Tina.

JO on her new iphone case from Korean. Ridiculously wrong, but so cute!

The Werkartz Studio was amazing! And the people I did get to meet were too.

There was a wall covered in mirrors so of course we took #selfies!

Then we headed over to our usual late HH, EMC! Bottle (oh it was two) of rose.


IMG_6477 IMG_6480IMG_6485

 

And then, that happened. Dropped the toilet paper roll. Luckily I was able to get a handful before it fell!

We got two $25 gift cards from my cousin and her family and a $10 gift card from Bear’s optometry rebate so we decided to get new towels (finally) and a toaster (oven).

Toaster oven was way overpriced #BedBathandBeyond so we just got two bath towels.

Super soft, super white and a great deal!

We’ll be getting the toaster oven on #Amazon.

#QualityTime

Life as an adult gets more difficult since there aren’t enough days in a month to see everyone I love.

I make it a point to always hang out with the important people in my life.

I give the effort that is put in towards me.

With that said, my cousin and her family are a part of my family that I love to see and hang out with.

They’ve invited us to their home for dinner and fun numerous times and we wanted to return the favor by having them over after Bear’s move.

We ordered KC BBQ (Bear’s favorite restaurant). Go to PigletVentures for all the food photos!

Kids played and adults talked, laughed and drank a whittle. :P

We had so much fun and too much food! I couldn’t stop eating and I had ramen after they left!

I woke up… Too many pounds on the scale.

I need to do Jim but I just want to eat all day.

#MustTry #snacking

Tyler loves Takis and he found this at the Korean market.

He wanted to try and secretly I did to.

20140412-134901.jpg

At Ralph’s I found this.

I have a new jar of salsa at home so I didn’t get but I must next time!

I’ve been trying to be good about not buying excessive things after reason my friend’s blog about no waste living.

#RIP

Went to the Guess Factory store at their corporate office again and found this shirt. Don’t worry, I didn’t purchase it. :P

In memory of my license plate on my first car!

20140411-172911.jpg

20140411-172923.jpg

I bought some stuff but got changed back into my #DW…

20140411-173013.jpg

First event coverage.

I could’ve been better, but oh well.

I should’ve had drinks after getting on the camera, lesson learned.

Why Asian Women Should Date White Men

Or black, Brown, purple, yellow and green!

Who the fuck was that nincompoop that decided it would be funny to write that article.

Apparently he was white and he was joking. I don’t know what kind of category of humor that falls into but it caused a lot of commotion and it was not funny.

Sheesh, it even riled me up!

I saw the post on Facebook and from just the title, I had to read it.

After the first two paragraphs, I skimmed the rest and reposted with my opinion.

#ThoughtCatalog has some great published stuff but this was alarming. Made me second guess their content.

I believe we’re all a little racist, not because we have hatred but because it’s human nature and it can be funny.

Learning to deal with racism is to laugh it off, don’t take it too seriously.

It’s not right nor is it wrong. It is what it is. And yes, little by little we can rid racism but not by writing articles like the one that was published.

Human nature… It’s a funny thing.

It’s like being born and knowing you’re going to grow up and fuck another human being.

There are those who like to fuck goats and dogs and horses and so on, is it wrong or right? It’s neither, people do as they please no matter the judgement.

Racism exists because we’re all different and it’s ok.

It’s ok if you’re into animal sex, you’ll still be judged like the racist in the room. At the end of the day, it’s your choice to be seen in that light or not. Most like to be secretive.

There are times when I can be racist, but not because I hate that race or wish them to die. I’m racist because I’m comfortable with who I am and I know I can joke about it amongst my friends and not be taken seriously.

I can take offensive jokes too. Just last week, a white guy said I had chinky eyes. That is one thing I do not have, but he was stereotyping and trying to be funny. (You had to be there for the full convo). I wasn’t offended. I took it at face value and didn’t think anything of it.

It’s acceptable if you’re accepting of the fact that it’s not coming from a bad place. Don’t get me wrong, there are people who are actually racist but they’re too busy scheming about killing off the other race hiding in their basement in buttfuck Egypt.

So back to the article. I was offended because I’m not the typical Asian girl he described that only date white men nor is my fiancé the white guy who has yellow fever.

He was my first white boyfriend and I happened to fall in love with who he was and not the color of his skin.

I was never into white men ‘y preference was Asian Korean. I was narrow minded and ignorant. Never thought I could have anything in common with a white man nor a black or brown.

When I first met Bear I thought he had yellow fever and boy was I glad he wasn’t one of those.

After our first date I knew that I had been in the wrong. It’s not about the color, height, financial stability or package size that makes a person want to spend the rest of their lives with someone.

It’s who they are, how they were brought up, similar interests, common goals and communication.

I never thought I’d marry a white guy. Especially after only dating Korean man. I even married one and that didn’t work out.

I learn everyday because I’m with Bear. I have opened my mind about the possibilities of life outside of what I know and what I grew up with.

I love my decision and I wouldn’t have it any way.

For those who think it’s a stepping stool to get the #whiteprivileges by marrying a white man, you are delusional.

Feel free to date and marry whomever you like. Nobody cares and if they do you shouldn’t care.

Find your soulmate, find the person who understands you, do yourself a favor and love yourself first before really knowing what you can love.

Because once you know you, you’re not going to want what you think you wanted.

Racism only exists in those that want to make it a big deal.

To the rest, it’s just a bunch of words coming from a buffoon.

The only thing you should take seriously is your own life and who you decide will be in it.

If we’re going to get a step closer to world peace, all of you retards talking about racists and racism should shut the fuck up…and marry a person with a different ethnicity.

Once we’re all muts, we’ll all be happy cause we will all be one kind.

Happy Living!

What a great turnout! A huge congratulations to my hubby who gathered an awesome crowd!

Amazing artists and great music, food and drinks.

I was working so I didn’t drink but I sure did enjoy the night behind the camera.

Hubby asked me to do interviews but if I needed to do the videography, I couldn’t be in front of camera…

So I ended up being behind the camera and having the artists and sponsors do shoutouts.

I had Tyler waiting for me at home so I left before the party started. Just made sure my work was done.

Promo video coming soon!
