Thread of the Day...



Smelly and Crazy (thanks Kayoy for the summarized by thread nickname)

Would the REAL Thyda... please stand up?

"It is better to be disliked for what you are than to be liked for what you are not."

... I came across this quote yesterday on an old friend's myspace page. This quote holds so much truth in it and you would think that it wouldn't be necessary for anyone to actually read it or write it down for people to realize that THAT is the truth.

You know, there are many times when people judge me and think that I am "fake" because they don't believe that I am really the way I am and that the happy go lucky cloud niner and friendly image that I have is just a facade. What can I say? Those who believe that my true persona is just a facade don't really know me, do they? Therefore, they don't mean anything to me. Actually, I take that back... they're something to me. They're my source for laughs and a pot of humor... and they give me more reason to keep on being the way I am. Thats just me... I like to prove people wrong and laugh in their faces when people doubt me. I still can't think of a word that best describes that characteristic of mine... someone please help me out.

Back to the quote... let me go ahead and list what I am and what I am not... just so there wouldn't be any confusion for those who choose to like or dislike me. I have all the time in the world... well... my bus ride is about 15 more minutes. I guess I should have started this sooner, but I was just too busy engulfing myself in the Vanity Fair magazine that I tried hard to get into but couldn't. Politics just aren't my thing... darn me.

- I sleep with my mouth open... and I snore. I often wake up to a puddle either on my pillow, my shirt, or my hair.
- My feet are of different sizes... one is longer than the other that is wider than that longer one.
- Hands... huge. I have manly hands... and they're bigger than 60% of guys I know.
- I am LOUD... and I often get on people's nerves when I talk too much.
- I'm probably the most random person you'd ever meet... or speak to.
- My short term memory is something I wish I could fix... but ginseng doesn't help. I often think that I have A.D.D... but I am too scared to go get tested because I'm afraid that the results would make it official. I'd hate to have "disorder" anywhere attached to my name.
- My eyes are wider apart than I'd like them to be... but then again, I don't think I can get used to them being any closer together than how it is now.
- I am hairy... probably hairier than my boyfriend. Now that's sad.
- I hate wearing my contacts, so often times, I would squint to the point that it annoys people. My own sister gets annoyed by it. I can't afford glasses right now... or maybe I'm just too lazy to go in and get them.... oh... that reminds me...
- I am LAZY! Yes... I like to sit around on the couch and do NOTHING often times. Better yet, bed!
- Procrastination would be my middle name if I had one.
- After I procrastinate, I cram when there's a deadline for something and then I get irritated and nervous when I think things wouldn't get done. Then I have excuses or blame it on others! :p
- I am probably freaking my fellow bus riders out because I am typing all of this with a grin. I have a rapist type of grin when I'm extremely happy.... its scary.
- I have mood swings like no other... and I'm not even anywhere near menopausal... I don't think.
- I am VERY impatient... even the two seconds it takes for a gumball machine to deliver my prize pisses me off!
- I am friendly to everyone that I first meet... but I am quickly judgmental and can determine if I like someone or not REAL quick.
- I have selective memory and have this tendency to remember the negatives most often.
- I am a binge eater.
- I sometimes wake up with eye crusties... I wonder if I cry when I sleep without knowing it.
- I am overly competitive when its unnecessary... quite childish, but its fun!
- Sometimes I care too much and sometimes I am careless... most often at the wrong times for either.
... to be continued... at my bus stop now.

Fall Bridal Spectacular

Going to this event with the ladies this weekend! Should be exciting... my first event like this EVER!

11 Things (Rules) Never Taught in School

Life is not fair - get used to it.

The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world
will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel
good about yourself.

You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out
of high school. You won't be a vice president with
car phone, until you earn both.

If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a
boss. He doesn't have tenure.

Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your
grandparents had a different word for burger flipping
called it Opportunity.

If you mess up,it's not your parents' fault, so don't
whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as
they are now. They got that way from paying your bills,
cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about
how cool you are. So before you save the rain forest
from the parasites of your parent's generation, try
delousing the closet in your own room.

Your school may have done away with winners and losers,
but life has not. In some schools they have abolished
failing grades and they'll give you as many times as
you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the
slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get
summers off and very few employers are interested in
helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

Television is NOT real life. In real life people
actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for

... pretty damn awesome advices if you ask me! Very much truth in them.

I'm losing it...

Lately, I've been letting myself go. Meaning, I eat junk food from dawn to dusk... vegetables have been replaced with chocolates... soda is back in my diet... and I am not on my feet for any longer than a minute at a time. Seriously, I'm losing it. I need inspiration and motivation. I turn down photoshoots because I'd hate to disappoint photographers.

Give me two months... and I will be back on track. I've been saying that all my life, but now... I really need to knuckle down. (I've been saying that forever too... haha... but pho riels this time! :D )


I talked to Mary yesterday, and it felt great! We all drifted apart and went our separate ways... myself mostly. Mary had always been a little more mature and understanding amongst my group of friends from High School... so it was just good to talk to her, yanno? It was brief... but we somewhat got the gist of how each others' lives are right now. Maybe one day I'll get to go back to my carefree partying days... but for now, I'm satisfied just being a party pooper. :)

Sambath & Jolene

Tomorrow is Sambath and Jolene's wedding and I still have nothing to wear. I'm not too worried about it though because I can just slip on one of my little black dresses, throw on some black heels (or gold... hehe) and I'm good to go! Actually, I'm more worried about leaving the wedding to go to the Khmer party instead. First off, I'd have to drive from wherever the wedding is (Tacoma, I believe... which reminds me that I should really look at the invitation) to Renton where the party is at. I'd hate to walk into a party all by myself, so I'll try my best to persuade one or two of the good people to wait up for me. Sucks... everything just has to happen at once.

I'm excited for the wedding though. The two of them have been together for such a long time, its kind of crazy. They've been together since I was in middle school... thats when I first met Jolene. She was always considered Sambath's wife to us, but I guess they're finally making it official... reception and all. Sam and I ran into Jolene the weekend of the water festival and she told us about the wedding since.

She's going to kill me....

She's going to kill me. Today is the day of the long awaited Halloween party and I don't even have a costume. What makes matters worse is that I was the one who came up with the wonderful idea and sent out the actual invite. I'm doomed... she's killing me.

Make Up Moodswings...

Thanks to Sophine, I no longer wanna do work today and will be putting together a makeup/cosmetics wish list. Please note that these are not necessities, but they are fun to have goodies! :D

I can't seem to have enough brushes! Well... I don't remember one time there was a brush set special that I did not buy a set, but I can't get enough of them. My sister always jacks mine anyways... so thats why I always want more! This in particular... I always lose my eye brushes!

Buy it HERE (click)!

I'm starting to take care of my lips more and wearing lipgloss again. When I finally do, I don't know where all my lipgloss had gone.

I want this one in particular because it has an old color I love... Flashmode!

But it HERE (click)!

These colors also please... they look frosty and would be pretty in the winter snow!

Buy it HERE (click)!

The craziest eyeliner I've ever known! It takes a while to dry, but the look is well worth the wait. Don't move your eyes for about a minute... unless you're highly skilled (like I am... haha), then you'd know how to move it without messing it up. I used it on a few friends and they hated it because the darn thing just doesn't come off with water... its almost permanent! (Okay I exaggerated a bit, but I love this stuff).

(in Point Black please)
Buy it HERE (click)!

My life would be an easy place if I had one of these. This thing has been on my wishlist for a few years now... what the hell is it doing STILL on my wishlist?

Buy it HERE (click)!

Running low on this... and I had a dream about it last night... how could you NOT wanna buy it for me?

Buy it HERE (click)!

Also running low on this... in Medium Beige please!

Buy it HERE (click)!

Tested this at Sephora's the other day... well.. played with it... but didn't try it on myself. I really wanna try it!

But it HERE (click)!

Because sometimes I just get too pale for my own good...

But it HERE (click)!

For Sreynieng...

For Smoke...


I have a cold and it sure ain't pretty. My nose is cherry red and the area on my face surrounding my nose is as dry and crusty as sand paper.

As I said... ain't even cute! Especially with all the festivities this weekend, I'm irritated with this unofficial snot marathon.

Halloween party @ Grace's on Friday
Cousin's wedding on Saturday
Khmer All-Star party on Saturday

... this freakin' sucks! Hmph!

but hey... at least the rest of my face/skin looks great! ;)

Countdown until Christmas!

Exactly two more months until Christmas. Yay... I can't wait! My favorite holiday really IS the best time of year! Hopefully I'll get to see most of my family (if not all) around that time. Kind of sucks having such a huge family because its nearly impossible to coordinate everyone's schedule so that we can spend some quality time together. But I guess we can't have our cake and eat it too... although I don't know why you would even want a piece of cake to sit there and mold... but thats another entry in itself... haha!

Just like how its been the past couple of years, our family room is going to be jam packed with gifts for everyone... not just the kids. I guess my family grew out of the whole mindset where only kids get presents. Nope... I think I deserve presents just as much as the kids do... if not more! LOL! Its nice to see my parents laughing and smiling... cheering the kids on while they open their presents though. My dad... haha... I think he enjoys the kiddos' gifts more than his own!

Anyway... I want to start Christmas shopping early.. and actually enjoy it. Hopefully, money wouldn't be such an issue this year round. I'll have my fingers crossed and pray that I get a huge bonus for a job well done at work. So far, so good... !

Oh... and I can't help but look around for things I'd like for myself. I don't think its selfish... its self rewarding! ;)

Mascara Dilemma

I can't believe I had a full night's dream about a mascara dilemma. Does this mean that I am superficial or that I am only concerned about physical appearance and cosmetics? I don't think that I'm too superficial nor am I materialistic, but cosmetics is just one of my interests and its a form of art that I enjoy.

Anyhow... on to my dream. It seemed like I was in Nordstrom or something, and I was at the MAC counter trying to pick up a Zoom Lash mascara. It turned out that it was discontinued because the mascara made lashes WAY too full. I'm thinking, "isn't that the freakin' point though?". Then I said, "okay... can I get a tube of Fiber Lash then?" The salesperson told me that the wand was too crazy and that it was also discontinued. What the hell is the world coming to? I said "FINE!" and decided to settle for the Pro Lash mascara. What do you know? They were out of stock! I was ready to slit someone's throat! Finally, I decided to forget MAC and get my beloved DiorShow mascara by Christian Dior. After making the purchase, I was beating myself up for paying nearly $50 for a tube of mascara! I contemplated... and came to my senses... "thats two weeks worth of lunch almost!" and decided to return that mascara. HAHAHA... this was all a dream!

I woke up this morning panicking that maybe I was really out of mascara, so I went to double check. What do you know? I have ALL of those Mascaras and about a dozen more that are all barely used. I could breathe and was happy all over again!

I don't know why I would dream such thing, but I'm guessing its because sometimes, I just skip the whole mascara process because I'm too lazy. I guess this was a wake up call for me to appreciate mascara much more... haha!!!

Skol Rous Jeat Snaeh

One of my all time favorites... I still remember the lyrics word for word after all these years! :D

Bong Tver Min Youl

I don't know why, but I just love this song. Maybe its the rhythm that soothes me... it sounds so pretty!

Bong Pov's voice sounds so pretty here too... *sigh* I wish I knew how to sing.

Bed Time...

Its crazy how early I've been going to bed lately. Actually, its a great thing because I don't feel like my battery is running low throughout the day so I have to work extra hard to energize... yanno what I mean? Well, I like having an early bedtime (no later than 11pm on weekdays), but does that mean I'm getting old? What if one day I want to stay up really late, but I can't? Yikes!

October 23, 2007


A little late, but as always, I have to post a little something something about my weekend, don't I? Well, it was a great one. It was good times with good friends... true randomness and non stop laughter! Didn't take too many pictures, and the pictures that were taken? Well... most of them are probably unappropriate! ;)

Man... how is it ever possible to get relaxing, fun, and crazy all in the same weekend, all at the same time? Haha... we're amazing!

Oh... and I finally made this... just don't ask HOW it was made! :D

This was our Friday night dinner... that I cooked with Bong Nieng's help! LOL... the curry was a Thai style type curry... yanno... with eggplants and bellpeppers and beef and stuff... haha!

Probably wasn't the best, but you can't say I didn't try! ;)

Fire in Southern California...

Since I don't ever watch TV unless its Ladies' Night... I didn't even know about the wildfire until Sam pointed it out to me yesterday. I nearly had a heart attack as I googled it because I thought it was in Long Beach or Irvine... where my family and friends are... and where my boyfriend lives and works. Reading more, I was a bit relieved that it wasn't, but the whole thing still worries me. I pray for those in the area and will continue to keep them in my thoughts.

I'm a bit annoyed that the air in Irvine is horrible, yet they're still making their employees be at work. Maybe I'm just spoiled and my work isn't in as high of a demand as others, but I don't care what people say, health > work.

I asked my boyfriend to go get one of these:

... and I don't think he's going to. Hmph!

Another reason to add to my list of "Why I do NOT want to live in California".

"I'll Love YOU forever..."

I love people watching. I find it relaxing, yet intriguing. You see things that break your heart, rethink certain things in life, and sometimes, things that are heartwarming and make you go, "awww...". And no, I am not a stalker or peeping tom of any kind. I'm just sometimes very observant and analytical.

What do I love seeing as I people watch? Many things... but what gets me most is seeing elders. It makes me wonder what kind of life they have led and what brought them to where they are now. I think its adorable when I see a group of elders dining out together or just hanging out... it lets me assume that the circle of friends have lasted a long, long time. It then gets me wondering about my circle(s) of friends and if we are going to be like that one day... gray, but happy to be together. What's even sweeter? When old couples are together... holding hands or simply kissing one another on the cheeck or using words of endearment towards their love. I then assume that they've been together for a long time and still live by their wedding vows. When they say, "I'll love you forever", they meant it... and thats how it should be. :)

October 17, 2007


Goodbyes are always so hard...and they happen more often than most of us would like. I hate saying goodbye to people I grow to like, love, or just acquaint... even if you know you'll see that person again. What sucks even more is knowing that you're probably not going to have a chance to see that person again.

Yes, I am a baby and I cry... I cry a lot. Sometimes, I think that I am too emotional for my own good... and I wish I wasn't at all. Heck, just watching shows where people have to say goodbye makes me cry. (ie. America's Next Top Model when someone gets eliminated... cheesy, but true)

I guess I shouldn't take goodbyes for granted though... some don't even get a chance to say their goodbyes.

Car and Phone

It seems like out of everyone I know, I have THE worst luck with cars... and phones. I don't know if its just my luck or if it has a lot more to do with my clumsiness. If its just my luck, then thats really out of my control, right? Therefore, I will just keep telling myself that I'm not clumsy... its just my luck! ;)

Kid Nation

My newest and most inspirational addiction: Kid Nation

Thanks Pearl for introducing me to such a heart warming and inspirational show. The three episodes that I've seen, have touched me and were sweet tear jerkers. I can't explain it... you'd have to watch it to understand. Check out the link and watch the trailer at least. This show is on at the same time as America's Next Top Model... but I'd choose it over Top Model ANY DAY!

One Flaw in Women

A lovely WOMAN emailed this to me today... and I love it...

One Flaw In Women

By the time the Lord made Woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable
and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time, and
a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything
with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

"She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel, noticing something, reached out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops , it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak,"
the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness, love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer if there's a better solution
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel; cheer when friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail to show how much they care.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.



PLEASE pass this along to all the women you admire to remind them just how amazing they are!

What's WRONG with me?

At lunch today, I decided to take a little walk in the rain to go to Sephora's. After about 10 minutes of being in there, I was already sick of it! Seriously! I know, I know... what a SURPRISE, right? I wanted to treat myself today to something and I figured Sephora's would be the perfect place to do that. There was not one single item that I was going nuts for. Part of this could be because I already have everything that I need and there is nothing that I can truly say that I will actually use or would like to use. It was somewhat weird, but it was also a good thing. I usually spend over and hour and over a Benjamin whenever I'm in there, but today was a new day.

What's WRONG with me?


I must write this fast since I have so much to do today. Yikes!

My weekend was awesome... I had my good ol' partying night filled with the rhythm game, assassin, high/low, this or that, and what you want? Those are all some of my favorite party games! Haha! ;) I also had my good ol' charity dinner for the Women's Safety Center with Nara, Seung, and Grace. What's funny is that we're all camp counselors from Seattle, and we ran into another camp counselor who recently moved to Seattle from Denver! Mini reunion for a good second! The dinner and auction itself was just a great event that was well put together. I think they raised quite a bit of money for such a great cause, and although I was there for free... thanks to Pearl's good ol' company who bought a table, it was nice to be a part of something so awesome! Going to another one this weekend, at the same place for another worthy cause... I'm excited. In the future, I would love to get back into those kinds of things... community involvement. This will be one of my 2008 New Years' resolutions... mark my words! :D

People have ISSUES!

Someone sent me a link to THIS:


What the hell, dude?

Blaming Actions on Alcohol

Listening to the T-Man show in the morning always gets me worked up over the idiots who call in. So this morning, a guy calls in asking what he should do since he got plastered drunk last weekend and woke up with a naked girl on top of him... and he only had a shirt on... the rest was off. Oh... and he has a serious girlfriend. The idiot wanted to know if sleeping with the girl was considered cheating since he was so drunk and didn't remember a thing.

Well, my idiot... it IS cheating and you should not blame your idiotic actions on alcohol. People who cheat shouldn't be in a relationship in the first place... and people who aren't going to take responsibility for their actions while they're drunk shouldn't be drinking! It also goes to show that the dude is an idiot for asking the damn question on a popular radio show that his girlfriend, her friends, and/or family may listen to. *shakes head* Personally, I think calls like these are for people who are just looking for strangers to stroke their ego or give them a pat on the back for being such a senseless and horny pig.

Don't know the girl personally, but I didn't realize that people are still this sleezy nowadays. Disgusting.

I called into the show, and finally got through and the operator took my name and put me on cue to be on the air. I was driving to work at the time, and after being on cue for 14 minutes, I was at work and didn't feel like waiting on the line any longer. Whats interesting is that I heard the show about 15 seconds over the phone before I heard it on the radio. I didn't know that radios had that much of airtime delay. Bleh... wasted 14 good minutes of my anytime minutes! But hey... at least the operator was nicer this time. He said that my opinions were "wonderful" and he called me "sweetie". Much better than the homie who hung up on me when I was trying to yell at the host for bagging on Britney. Again.

The Darnest Thing!

As many of you may already know, I have almost a million nieces and nephews. This happened a week or two ago... but its very post worthy... late or not!

Imagine these three munchkins lined up as I start to ask them a few questions...

Auntie: Justin, what's your teacher's name?
Justin (2nd grader): Ms. Finley!
Auntie: Seyla, what's your teacher's name?
Seyla (Kindergartener): Ms. Hughes!
Auntie: Rachany, what's YOUR teacher's name? (knowing that she doesn't have one yet)
Rachany (3 years old): I have a doctor!

... hahaha! So freakin' clever, I love it!


For the first time in a long time, I can finally say that I am content with who I am and where I am at. I think that after landing this job and being happy where I am, my confidence and self belief is where it should be. There were times when I didn't know what the future held for me and I would go to bed worrying about the stability of my job, my finances, my family's disapprovals. Right now, all that is out the window... and its about darn time!

For the past year, I wasn't the most pleased with myself and I wasn't the cheeriest fruit in the bowl. Now, I'd like to believe that I'm getting there. Things just got brighter for me and stress is slowly but surely lifting off my shoulders. Work's great... my family's healthy... my friends happy... and my love is harmonious.

I am content... content is me. :)

My Outfit

Can I just say that I love my outfit today? I haven't been dressing the way I'd love to since I can't afford to go shopping, but I am utterly pleased with my choice today. Its my first time wearing the top that Nara had bought me awhile back (thanks again, Sis!) and my Express blazer that I've neglected for a year or so. And on top of it all, I'm having a great hair day! LOL!

Ladies' Night In...

I ate so much last night, its crazy! Nara made us some KAW and some Lok Lak... and it was goooooood! Seriously, I pigged out like crazy and then fell asleep on her couch watching our shows. I think I probably snored too! But yeah... food was awesome and I can't wait for next week... I wonder who will host and cook! Hehe... I love Ladies' Night even if I can't hang anymore. Bed time is crazy early (10ish) since I have to wake up at 5am. I'm on the road from 6:45am-8am... sucks... but I have the T-Man show to keep me company!

Lok Lak... yum!

KAW... I learned how to make it and I stirred this too! HAHA!

Didn't get to eat this one since Nara made it few days before, but I'm crossing my fingers she'd make it for me one day since I love sno peas! :D

Thanks for hosting and cooking, Nara! That BrotherMan... he's a lucky man!

...thats true LOVE. What a sweet, sweet man.

Smashbox Photo Finish Primer

So my face had gotten a LOT better since yesterday. I swear never to use that stupid Rev-er Upper thingy again... especially when I don't need it. Ugh... don't want to talk about it again or else I'll be pissed off all over! Hmph!

On another note, there is a product that I absolutely love and recommend to anyone! If it wasn't for the Smashbox Model Search 2007 prizes, I never would have thought about giving this primer a try...

This thing is awesome! It goes on really light and makes your skin feel silky smooth... literally! The website reads the description as, "Create the perfect canvas for foundation application with our best-selling PHOTO FINISH FOUNDATION PRIMER. With grapeseed extract to soothe and protect skin, this colorless formula fills in fine lines and pores to help skin appear visibly softer with a smooth velvet finish. Use after moisturizer and before foundation for complexion perfection.

Ahhhh... you wouldn't understand until you give it a shot! This past weekend, I had Grace, Nack, Pania, and Sam all try it... Sam (Nack's brother) even wore it on his face! Its clear and just softens your skin. Heck... wear it alone... I do! :D Seriously... go into your nearest Sephora's and just TRY it... and I can pretty much guarantee that you'll love it! A small botle is $36, but its well worth the money! It will probably last you at least 4 months... I'm going on my fourth month with my first bottle now, and I still have plenty! ENJOY!


...the BEST commercial ever made!

Promise Rings

Since I've been driving longer ways to work now, I've been listening to more radio. I'm thankful for the T-Man show (as annoying as he may be, there are some really interesting and thought provoking topics).

Anyhow, this morning... I realized something. T-Man's right... a "Promise Ring" is really a "get off my back" ring! Seriously! If someone is going to make a promise to you to marry you... or ask you to marry him, he's going to give you an engagement ring... not a "Shut Her Up" ring! Its a way for guys to keep you stringing along believing that he will one day propose to you. Bleh... just cut the chase and do it already then! If he gives you a "promise ring"... its an "I promise to break your heart" or an "I promise to marry someone else but promise to keep you around for now" ring. Chances are, he has no intentions of marrying your ass! :)

I'm keeping this in mind and when/if I ever receive one, I'll chuck it at his head. Just a little FYI. ;)

Thai Lakorns

My Bong Bong's in Northern California sent me my Thai Lakorns! I was so ecstatic to finally receive them since the Mailman took the day off on Monday for Columbus Day. I started on one of them last night and I can't wait to finish the rest of them. Yayyyyyy! Seriously, I don't think I wanna stay later at work anymore. I have Lakorns waiting for me at home! :D

I owe the Bong Bong's some home cooking whenever they visit. I guess they don't care too much about taste or the edibility of the food since they're trusting this pa'oun to cook! Wuahahhaha! *evil laugh*

bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper

I hate this crap!

This morning, I was just patting myself on the back for having great skin. I've been using Bare Minerals and I love it! The makeup itself is light and very natural feeling. The kit that I purchased came with this "bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper". It apparently...

-Multi-vitamin supplement rejuvenates and smoothes surface of skin prior to applying bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation.
-Formulated with botanicals, glycolic and salicylic acids.
-Helps refine fine lines.
-Lightweight, fragrance-free, formulated for all skin types.


I used it briefly a couple of weeks ago, but thought that my skin irritation was caused by my sister's harsh face wash. (Refer to prior post about skin) I didn't use it anymore because it did nothing for me and I was afraid to use anything... not even a face wash. After a few days, it was back to normal and fine. This morning, (after being conceited and appreciating my face/skin), I put the thing on since I had a few extra minutes for the extra step that I neglected. My face started itching since this morning! Its burning and feels very tight... and I just want to rip my face off right now.

I read some reviews on it just now and people have experienced the same thing I am with it! Its horrible! All those acids and unnecessary chemicals on the face... and someone else mentioned that it smells like Elmer's Glue... and it does! Grrrr!

Don't get me wrong... I love Bare Minerals alone... just not this burning crap! Gosh... who wants to do the honors of ripping my face off?

Here's a picture of me this morning when I first got to work... thats a "BEFORE" picture.

Nevermind... I looked scary even when I thought I looked good... haha!

As for the "AFTER" picture, imagine me 40 years older, redder and drier skin, scaly, and 69 more wrinkles all over! Yes... its sad... and its too early for Halloween for me to actually show and scare you with my actual picture.

Dim Sum...

Family came up to have lunch with me today. Dim Sum... yum! Man... its been over 3 hours and I'm still full!

You've got a lot on your plate right now -- and so does your boss. It's not a great time to ask for a raise or any other special treatment, but if you wait just a day or two, things should lighten up considerably.

... then I guess its a good thing my boss isn't coming into work today! ;)

Great Weekend...

So I came into work on Saturday... I kind of had to. Afterwards, Nack, Grace, Pania, and Sam (Nack's brother) came over to play with me. We had a great time being silly... well I did at least! I like people visiting me at work... haha... and I like being at work! Lets hope that lasts for a long time. Later, I went over to Sunaro's sister's place to watch the boxing match. Not really a boxing person, but it was cool. I was trying to make a bet that Manning would win. Then I said Mandy. Later, I realized that his name was Manny! LMAO... thanks Nara for encouraging me to make a fool out of myself. Glad I will always have her support in that department! :D

I wasn't feeling too well yesterday so I was in bed most of the time. Finished "Snokei Ontong Snaeh"... but fast forwarded through some of the parts. I'm just upset that Chakrit cheated on his lady in the movie. Minus two points for him! Hopefully I'll get my lakorns in the mail tonight... I can't wait! I think I even dreamt of them... haha!

Okay... back to work I go. Hopefully my sister will come visit later! :D

Your great energy makes it that much easier for you to check out new options and dream up crazy new schemes. It's a really good time to improve your love life -- or just enjoy it for what it is.

... Will do!

High Maintenance?

People always assumed that I'm pretty high maintenance, but those closest to me know that I'm not. I guess being in the fashion industry, you're bound to get slightly more high maintenance than before you set foot in the industry. Honestly though, I wouldn't mind enjoying the luxuries and taking time to observe and experience the finer things.

We only live once, right? Hehe... of course! (until we reincarnate! ;) )


Nara and Grace came over to my new work yesterday. It is VERY safe to say that they love my new job just as much as I do. The both of them have been very supportive of me and all (I mean... most) of my decisions since I first met them... but I really think that I have the most encouragement and support from them right now. *sigh* I love these girls... I do! Last night after their field trip over here and after we did a little "shopping", we went out to dinner. Its always nice being able to talk about the little things and catch up every now and then. I was very exhausted from the previous night (Ladies' Night In) and from work... so I kept dazing off... sorry girls! Nevertheless, it was good times. Grace pointed out that she feels like she's living like Sex and the City. In a way, we are... minus all the crazy sex talk... we're not THAT Sex and the City... yet! ;)

Lovin' my new job...

Got my parking garage remote! My broke down Honda Civic looks sad next to the BMWs, Mercedes, and all that fancy stuff.

I officially have a MacBook! Its black... I'd rather have the white, but beggars can't be choosers. I'm scared to bring it home but I was given a case to bring it home in. I think that means they want me to work from home. :( LOL!

I am lovin' this place... LOVE IT!

Did anyone miss me or notice that I was gone? I doubt it!

Okay... ladies' night tonight... I can't wait to get back to work tomorrow morning!

My new life is starting tomorrow morning. I hope to stay focused... but I will miss my old KC ways.

You'll find me here... occasionally.

Y'alls know how to reach me though. Mwuah!

Never too early...

I am in the Christmas spirits year round! Seriously... woke up listening to this song! :D Awww... I am excited for Christmas this year!

October 1, 2007


The more research I do about my new company and the CEO, the more I am intrigued.

I'm excited... and hoping that this all turns out for the best. I haven't been this happy in a long time... so lets hope that I remain this way even after Wednesday! :)

... (continued from the last post)

(from almost a year ago... MEMORIES!!)
We'll REUNITE and it'll feel so GoooooooooooooooD!

She'll be comin' around the mountain!
