My cousins husband dives for jade and then creates his own masterpieces. He happened to have a table at a local fair, so me and the hubby went by to support him and check all his stuff out. His pieces are truly one of a kind. Some of his pieces also have abalone that he's found as well.
Check him out: Jade Divers
My uncle's cancer went into remission, then within a month ended up showing up again. Apparently it decided it wanted to spread into his brain. We went to go visit him at the John Muir hospital where he's staying at. This hospital is gorgeous. My uncle unfortunately isn't allowed to see the beauty. He's currently trapped in his room: no tv, no books, no leaving the room. Praying things start looking up soon.
My work helped out the Alameda County Community Food Bank at the Alameda County Fair. If people brought in 4 non-perishable items, they got to get into the fair for free. It was so great to see how everyone loved to help out. Many people brought extra to just help out. That made up for the one or two people I saw that tried to cheat the system and be greedy. (One guy gave away his sons lunch just so he can get in for free!) *Sigh*
You know, as I was going through all the pictures that I've taken since I've been M.I.A., I noticed that I took quite a few pictures, but mainly of family and friends. I've decided not to include most of those because I'm still wary about posting all that, especially since my blog is public. I guess my 365 project will just have tons of gaps until I decide that family/friend pictures are okay to post.
We finally had the chance to meet the pretty Chow Chow in our neighborhood. Our neighbor had an older one that they had to put to sleep. Pretty sad. So they got a new one. Meet Mya. She's so cute and full of energy.
When I forget to bring a lunch and don't feel like spending a lot for lunch, I got to this local asian bakery. This ham and cheese bun is only a dollar and it's quite delicious. My drink usually ends up a pearl tea drink from next door. That is until I found out that their drinks may have pieces of plastic in it. Weird huh?
