@SkySpaceLA #DTLA

It was the grand opening of the observation deck at #SkySpace #USBankTower in DTLA. I had it in my calendar months ago for the slide and about two weeks prior, I went on the site to get tickets. I wished I had a go pro but I didn’t need one at all. I was upset at the fact that we weren’t able to hold anything (phone) in our hands while sliding down. The cool part about it was that they took a photo of you coming down the slide. Just like at an amusement park! When we had all came down, we went to the kiosk to look at the photos. Of course, mine was the only one that wasn’t showing. They tried to mess with it for over 15 minutes and then I asked to speak to a manager. I nicely said, “I waited in line for over an hour and paid $30 to go down a slide and not be able to get a photo? I’d like to go down again.” He obliged and took me back to the slide, cut in front of the crowd and I got to go on again! This time, my photo came out! I was most appreciative of their accommodation and so happy that we as a family got to experience such an amazing part of our city. The space is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. Even my husband who’s scared of heights enjoyed the visit. I can’t wait to come again and go down the slide over and over again when there is no line!


 






Tyler’s Birthday Gift @SamsungTweets

Saw my friend Catalina and her children on VR and I’ve been contemplating about what to get him. This would be a great buy for him and for me since it’s not that expensive!!

#Bye

Always a bittersweet moment. I love having him around and miss him dearly as soon as I drop him off but then again I look forward to some alone time. But no matter what, Tyler is always on my mind. I am always thinking of him every minute of the day, wondering how he’s doing or what he’s doing and thinking about if he’s thinking of me too… the best part about being apart is when he texts or calls me!

#TylerDay #DTLA

Tyler and I had a really great weekend together. I enjoy picking him up on Fridays even though I have to sit in traffic for 2-3 hours from BH to South OC. But that extra night I get to have him under the same roof means a lot. He’s growing so fast and any time spent away from each other is detrimental to our relationship. It’s crazy because one week we’ll get along great and he’ll go home happy. The next weekend, I will yell and be upset and he won’t go home happy, neither will I. But I understand. There are times I can’t always be the #partimemom and do whatever he wants. I still need to put my foot down and do my part as if I was a #fulltimemom. I can’t let him slide on things because I will not allow him to get away with things because I see him on the weekends.

It’s difficult. I will say the most difficult part is the fact that I can implement mannerisms and behaviors that I think he should learn and carry as he gets older because I don’t see him that often. I don’t get to use the good that I’ve learned growing up to make sure that he has the same upbringing. And as much as it’s unfair, it’s also fair. I realized that no matter how the situation would be, there will never be a fair way to raise a child with divorced parents. One person will always feel like they get the short end of the stick. And i think I’ve come to just accept that fact. Once it’ll be me, another time it’ll be my first husband. (But I feel like it’s me most of the time! :P)

#KansasFun

We went to some fun in the woods thing for a musical event and we ended up just playing in the kids area. You all know I can’t resist a slide, so when I saw one, I had to slide down. Yes, even in my dress. Also, you can see that my son and I can’t take a nice picture.

#100thDay #KoreanCulture

Koreans love celebrating the life of a baby. Apparently because back in the day, parents were lucky to have a child live past 100 days. Hence the 100 day celebration and the HUGE 1st birthday celebration. Well, at least that’s what I was told. If I’m wrong, someone please correct me because that’s what I’ve been telling my white side of the family.๐Ÿ˜›

My eldest cousin had his 3rd son. We celebrated an intimate dinner at the China Gate restaurant. Everyone does their celebration there, unless you’re super fancy and then you do it at Lawry’s or Spago.

I have this theory, the first child always looks like the mom or dad. The second child always looks like the one that the first child doesn’t look like. The third child is a mixture of both, which is always the best looking child. Now think about the people in your life that fit that count…. right?

Anyway… we enjoyed a delicious meal at the birthday. I popped a diet pill because I didn’t want to pig out. Did me right! There was another celebration at the restaurant, a 1st birthday. The parent and toddlers were running around and I noticed this white man with a hapa kid. He was the most adorable kid ever. I can’t wait to see what my child looks like… I don’t know when but I can’t wait!

If you’re single, please go marry someone outside your race, let’s take our existence one step closer to world peace!

Betty White @IrvineBMW

So we named Bear’s car. He asked me to name her and I said Betty as a joke, but then I remembered Betty White! What a great name for a white man’s car! HA!

He didn’t think it was so funny, but now it’s stuck. Please welcome, Betty White!

G Morning #Priorities

I’ve been drinking a lot of coffee lately. Not because I want to but because I need to. I’ve been tired, extremely tired, every morning. I really do believe it’s the lack of exercise in my life. How can one become a superwoman and conquer all the the tasks in one day.

1. gym
2. office
3. healthy eats
4. social life
5. school work
6. late office hours
7. relationship
8. alone time
9. errands
10. hobbies

Not necessarily in any order but how do you fit all of that in a 24 hour day minus sleep? Where’s that limitless pill when you need it?

Long Ride #VIPrius

The best part about being a passenger is being able to stretch my short little legs. Every Friday, I drive from Beverly Hills to Rancho Mission Viejo. That’s about 80 miles. Call me crazy, but that’s what I/We do.

I had a thought the other day (after Mother’s Day)… that if I could get into the office a little later two days out of the week, I would pick Tyler up in the am and drop him off at school and head into the office. I would stay later to finish up work and also I would be able to avoid traffic. If I got up at 4am, I’d be able to get to Equinox at 4am in Newport, workout and get ready and be at Tyler’s home by 7:00am-7:30am. I’d drop him off at school by 8:00am and get to the office by 10:00am-10:30am ish? The insane part would be that I would have already been up for six hours and had been on the road for 3.5hours of it.๐Ÿ˜›

I’ll have to talk to my Director about this… but I think this would be a great leap in my relationship with Tyler…

Mother’s Day 2016

We celebrated locally at the banquet hall at a golf course in Downey. We gathered all our aunts and uncles, cousins and children for a brunch buffet. We arrived at 1pm, ate delicious foods and took lots of pictures, like what Asians do.๐Ÿ˜›

Thank you AC for taking care of the brunch and putting it together! It was fun to hang out with family since the older we get, the more complicated our schedules get.

Dinner Dateย @CalPizzaKitchen

Our little family had dinner at CPK after I picked up Tyler from south OC. Funny thing is, I recommended Thai food, both agreed but when I gave them a second option of CPK, they jumped at the opportunity. It was a great choice because I had not had CPK in forever. I love that place so much! I’ve been messing with my camera a lot and I recorded a video during our dinner date.

We sat at the bar since the place was crowded and I was starving. Spinach and artichoke dip, kid’s bbq pizza, club pizza and kung pao spaghetti. Ugh everything was so tasty. I’m on my detox now and I hate that I’m writing about food as I’m chomping on raw veggies.๐Ÿ˜ฆ
