What happened to cursive? It's really disappearing now that everyone has computers and cell phones. My writing consists of half cursive, half not. I have a tendency to link some letters, but not others. I think I'm making it a goal this week to write in cursive more.

Music Monday: Rockapella

Now this is A Capella. One of my uncles used to live with us and he had the Spike Lee Do It A Capella VHS and I used to watch it all the time. Love it. This is a long video cause it shows part of the beginning of the video. So if you just want to watch the song, go straight to 2 min. 30 sec.

Recently I've been accumulating more magazines and I can't get myself to recycle them. The top one is my fav. I got it in Australia and their style is so great. I want most of the stuff in it, but I can't get them. =(

Christchurch, NZ

When my hubby and I went to Christchurch, NZ last year, they had just gone through a pretty big earthquake. We even called Hotel So, where we planned to stay, to make sure that they were still physically okay for when we visit. They said they were fine, but a few roads were still blocked around them. We felt a pretty decent sized earthquake the first day we were there. It wasn't too fun since we were on the 6th floor of our hotel. We ended up having a great time there, despite those few aftershocks we felt.

About a week ago, they were hit again with a huge earthquake. 6.3. This time there were some fatalities. It made me and my hubby pretty sad. Just praying for those that are there. Hoping for the best and remembering what it was like there.

The Canterbury Museum, which used to be a College campus.

 Awesome artwork that hung in the middle of the museum. It looked different from every angle.

Downtown Christchurch. They had lots of food trucks that would just park in the middle of the center.

Yes they can.

I say this a lot, but I do love my family. We're such foodies. Even my cousins 3 yr old makes sure to have food in her bag. Mamon (Filipino sponge cake) and a to-go packet of seaweed. She was so proud of it too!

It rained pretty bad all morning. I got pretty soaked when I got to work. But, we do need the rain, so it was nice. Forecasts claim it will actually snow in the Bay Area, but we'll see. I just dont think it's cold enough.

Tita Aida went back to Australia tonight. We printed a bunch of pictures of our wedding and our trip to Australia to visit her so that we could put it in an album for her to have during her plane flight. We're going to miss her.

Family finally started to leave and go back home today. As we were outside taking some family pics, Rocky had some fun just wandering around the front yard. Love him!

Although I've been eyeing this for awhile, I wasn't going to buy this pair because it was 5.5 and I didn't think it would fit. My wonderful hubby decided to surprise me & buy it for me. It arrived yesterday. I couldn't help but admire it again today before bed.

They actually fit great and are comfy. Vince Camuto rocks!

Yesterday was so long and emotionally draining that unfortunately I fell asleep before I could post this. Chicken wing crumbs used for fried rice yesterday. Best ever! Mmmm...

It's been a LONG day. As you can see, I'm still up at 1am. Despite the circumstances, it was still good to be around family & food. All the support & love means so much.

I couldn't resist getting $30 Kenneth Coles...*sigh* Well, it is to replace my ruined black pumps, so it's okay, right?

Happy Valentine's Day Auntie. Now you have your special date with uncle like you said on the 17th. As you rest in peace, we'll be praying for some peace of our own.

I am so excited for this movie. Can't wait until it comes out. I love gnomes! Although some can be kind of creepy looking...

Fruit Stickers!

Okay, so it's heart and love month. I can't help enjoying all the love decor and fun stuff that's out there. I never really got into the fact that guys have to give the girl something and really celebrate it. I just think that love should be celebrated all the time.

Anyways, I'll probably be posting more things about love since it's out there all month. =D Twig & Thistle created these DIY fruit stickers that I thought were very cute. Instead of handing out Valentine candies, why not just give out Valentine fruit?

Naked Girl Tea Set

Hmmm...Naked Girl Tea Sets? Not sure if I'd have one, but it sure is clever.

Oh Music...

Seriously, it's about time someone mentions how crappy and horrible the music is now. That's why I don't really listen to mainstream radio stations anymore...

I will never love you more

I love all of the Kate Spade items in this video. The cute taxi gloves, the shoes, the book (which I still would like to have), the accessories...everything is on my wish list.

Well done!

Dear Flower...



Love this!
