Till next year..

Time flies...
Two and a half weeks ago, Lynn and I were talking about how should we plan our busy schedule to accommodate mum's arrival to NYC. Lynn and I had recently started our semester and we were worried that we wouldn't have enough time to bring her around because it is not easy travelling around using the subways without any knowledge on the system or the iPhone to tell you where to go. 

Honestly, I really enjoyed your stay here. 
Besides the typical constant nagging (yeah, she saved that year long nagging since see saw us, and released it the moment she saw us), I had loads of fun just doing nothing after class, sipping on coffee, getting motherly advises about love and life.

Glad that you had fun with my friends.

So cute!

Hope to see you soon MummyDearest. 
And please drag dad along with you here for next year :)

Love you.

Mum's Treat!

Hey all, sorry for neglecting this blog. It's been a while. So many things happened and sometimes I just get too lazy to get into detail when it comes to blogging. I also have lost my mojo in blogging so putting whatever that's in my head to words is tougher for me. As you can see, there is no structure in my words. 

This is why I am not an English major :)

This time I decided to blog to update Daddykins that is stuck in Bangladesh because he is too busy to get off work to join our crazy mother. But's its ok, we think of you all the time Dad :)

Here's some updates.

We visited Mitsuwa at Edgewater New Jersey. It's is basically a Japanese supermarket with a food court. 
It's literally 10 minutes away by car from our house, but because it is in Jersey, transportation is less convenient compared to New York. So it takes a way longer time to get there.

I met mum and Lynn after my 9am Ballet class and it was raining monkeys and donkeys.
I guess nothing can stop us when it comes to good food.

Last Thursday, we visited the High Line Park.
The High Line was originally an old subway line constructed in the 30's.
The abandoned train line is now one of New York's beautiful parks on the West Side.

It runs from along 14th street to 30th street. 
There was definitely better views other than this picture. In fact this silly shot does do the High Line any justice. I was just being lazy about taking pictures because I was extremely tired from two technique classes in the morning and I was saving my energy for two more after my break time at the park.

No fret! I still got a picture of the two ladies.

The elevator on 14th street to the park.

Lynn was cooling her feet on the watered stone tile. 

Yesterday despite the 100% chance of rain, Kevin invited us and a bunch of his friends to his place for a BBQ on his roof. Thank goodness he listened to his gut instinct beside me questioning him if it's really gonna happen. Not a single drop. I guess you should have faith eh?
Stupid weather dot com. You can never predict the weather.

Super oily faces from working my burger grilling skills.
Lynn, Cheryl, and I

As you can tell, Kevin is a ladies man :)
This picture was right after I walked into a bunch of Christmas lights that was hanging around while I was setting up the self-timer for the camera. I literally almost strangled myself as everyone watched me make a fool out of myself.
It does create the best picture though. Everyone's smile was organic. XD

It was so hot and humid yesterday, I couldn't resist myself with the last moments of feeling like it's summer. Of course I had to paint em nails like skittles. You can't do it in the fall anymore :(

*Smile smile smile*

And as usual, I have to show how much of a bad ass I am just for giggles.

So, I don't know if you people know about this competition that Cheryl, Lynn, and I took part in.
probably not, because I am so bad at updating my blog.
Anyway, we were part of the Spot Dessert Bar photo competition. 
Basically we take a picture of ourselves with the dessert that we order from the restaurant, and we upload it on facebook. The picture with the most 'likes' wins a $50 gift card.

Guess what?
We won! A total of 90 likes!
Second place had only 40... hehehe...
So we decided to claim our $50 worth of desserts yesterday.

I love Spot dessert bar.
This is only the second time I've tried it's tapas because I've always been too poor to enjoy it.
It was amazing :)
I only have 3 good pictures out of the 5 tapas we had. But 3's better than none eh?

White Miso Semifreddo which had a hint of saltiness.
Had the most likes.

Yuzu Eskimo
My personal favorite. It was tangy and a little sour.

Lemongrass Pavlova.
Love the meringue consistency!
Cheryl said it reminded her of a macaron.

Since mum arrived, we've been having great home cooked meals too.
Lynn cooked, mum cooked, I cooked.... how often do we get all that in a week?!
I barely even eat at home last time because of work and rehearsals.
I like! :)

Picture of the day.
Mum specifically asked me to email this picture to Daddykins.
She said that you'll be happy to see the 3 women in you life together and happy :)

3 more days till MummyDearest flies off. 
Boo :(

Guess who's here?!

Mum flew in a couple days ago for a 2 week vacation. 
Love the fact that she makes dinner every night.
Hates the fact that she wakes our lazy asses up at 7.30am in the morning saying that, "It's 9 o'clock!!!!!"
(Yes, she's sneaky)
Love that she tells me how fat I am... well not really.
Hates the fact that I can't spend more time with her because of work, classes, and rehearsals.

Wish you were here too dad :)

Classes have been going on for a week. My body feels broken from all the intensive classes but I feel great about myself for being productive in working towards being a better performer. I don't want this feeling to end!

Mom's visiting in a couple of days!!!!! :)

I feel like I am not good enough.
Jack of all trades but master at none.
I don't even know what am I good at.

Page One

This month is a crucial month for me. Well, every month is but this particular month signifies a new beginning in certain ways just because I feel like I am entering into another chapter of my life.

1. I am back to being a student.
I enrolled myself in a short six month dance course. Hopefully my techniques will improve (which I am sure of), since I will be taking freaking 11 classes a week, which rounds up to about 17 hours of physical classes per week! Oooo... I'm so excited!! :)

2. I am on the process of applying for a visa. 
I just submitted my papers to the attorney yesterday. We'll see what happens. Ugh, thinking about it makes my tummy churn.

3. I am in dire need to lose weight. 
Yes I know, I have gained about 20 pounds since I moved to the States. I just started a food journal, keeping track of everything that I put in my body. Also, with the 11 dance classes a week, I hope that I reach my happy medium. Honestly, I don't care about the numbers on the scale, I just want to feel good for myself. Plus, if I am fat now, imagine how much of a pig will I become in 10 years after having kids! =.=

4. I have no money. Empty!
Since I am back being a student, with such a tight school schedule, it gives me very little time to work. Well, I am not suppose to work anyway since I am technically an International Student. So as for now, I am running on extreme low savings. Not to mention that I just paid the attorney AND my tuition fees out of my precious savings from last year. I am technically broke!!
Started my spending journal too. Let's see how much I spend in the month of September!!

5. The Play
Rehearsals just started with the dance-drama production that I am involved in. The producer's reading will be at the end of the month, which will determine where will the play go in the future. If everything goes well, we'll be opening the show on Broadway in February. Hence, I gotta buck up and make my parents and myself proud. :)
*I know mom and dad, that chunk of money that you spend on my education better be worth it right?!*

Life change much? Hell yeah, and I am in and ready for the ride!
