Mo Willems

Since John started the 1st grade, I've been reading books to kids every night. We go to the library every wednesday, n borrow 6 to 7 books for a week.

There are 2 books has same author, in 7 books we borrowed last Wednesday, I didn't realize til we got home.

Mo Willems. It's very cute! Obviously he has some series of books. His stories are very simple, pictures are very very cute! I really like it.

Actually, one of my life-long-dream is making children books.

When I was 14yrs old, I was in the hospital for 3 month. I had Kidney Infection, but I didn't have pain or anything, n there were a couple of same age patients in the same room, so I actually enjoyed it. Anyway, there was this one nurse who was going to the school for making children books, n she brought her home work, which to make her own children book, when she had a night shift. She was doing at the nurse station, I loved visiting her there when I couldn't sleep...

I don't have any talent to draw pictures or cartoon, but I DO have unlimited So one day, I want to make my own children books... Hopefully before my kids are grown

Who's Hot?: Scott McGillvray

Haha! I know if my hubby see this post, he would be like "Who TH is Scott McGillvray!?"

OK, first, this is my new series - "Who's Hot?" it's about all celebrity hot guys(of my view, of course!). So it's safe, right? Honey??lol

Back to the Hot man...

Scott McGillvray
The host of "Income Property" on HGTV

"For nearly 10 years Scott McGillivray has been turning real estate into real income. What started out as a university project to help homeowners generate additional income by creating rentable rooms in their homes has grown into a successful business of working with builders and renters to help homeowners offset their mortgage expenses."

I mean, look, he's hot, isn't he? He could be an actor! Obviously he's not just a host of TV show, but he's REAL!lol So he's good-looking, he's smart, he has a cute smile, n he's a REAL man.

My first MUST for guys is, has to be "MAN", not just a man, but real "man". I said "real man", not meaning "non-gay", but gotta be If you see my hubby, he's really really It turn me off when guys have a girly side(like think like a girl), or a girly body(like skinny twig arms... EWWWWWW!!), so if they have "man" thoughts n "man" body, even gay men could be hot.

Now, another thing, I think most of girls agree, but when we feel hot in men is, when men do something we girls cannot do. Like lift heavy stuff easily, or fixing something... Yep, my hubby has all those things! Haha!lol Alright, alright, enough about my hubby, huh?

So this Scott McGillvray, I know that not many of you know him yet, but trust me, it's worth to tune HGTV n see his show at least once!lol The show itself is good already anyway. His smile makes the show even

Lyric Sunday: I'll Be There For You

It would be very sweet if you were sang by your loved one. Haha. Yea, just like Ashton Kutcher sang in the movie "A Lot Like Love"(even though he didn't really sound like Jon Bon Jovi, but he was so hot!). So I would say this is one of my ultimate love songs.

I'll Be There For You

I guess this time you're really leaving
I heard your suitcase say goodbye
And as my broken heart lies bleeding
You say true love is suicide

You say you've cried a thousand rivers
And now you're swimming for the shore
You left me drowning in my tears
And you won't save me anymore

Now I'm praying to God
You'll give me one more chance, girl

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you
I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what love can do
I'll be there for you

I know you know we've had some good times
Now they have their own hiding place
I can promise you tomorrow
But I can't buy back yesterday

And Baby you know my hands are dirty
But I wanted to be your valentine
I'll be the water when you get thirsty, baby
When you get drunk, I'll be the wine

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you
I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what love can do
I'll be there for you

And I wasn't there when you were happy
I wasn't there when you were down
I didn't mean to miss your birthday, baby
I wish I'd seen you blow those candles out

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you
I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for...

I'll be there for you
These five words I swear to you
When you breathe I want to be the air for you
I'll be there for you

I'd live and I'd die for you
I'd steal the sun from the sky for you
Words can't say what a love can do
I'll be there for you

by Bon Jovi

Awwww.... Isn't that sweet???lol If my hubby sang this song for me, which it will never happen, but if he did, I would cry!lol Like I would say, this would be the perfect song when a guy made mistakes n made his girl mad, but he loves her so much n wanna show her how much he loves her n don't wanna lose her...?lol I would take it in any occasion though!

Keep Wishing Til I Get: Dr. Scholl's Shoes

We(as me n went another window shopping

Today, we went to Waikele Outlet. There were so many things added on my wish list, but this one, I am sooooo getting! I found this one at "Factory Brand Shoes", n I am sooooo getting this one!

Dr. Scholl's Original Women's Kitten $71

I didn't even know that Dr. Scholl's makes this kinda shoes!!!lol Well I knew that they make shoes, but I thought it's just ugly But these are not bad at all, are they??? So I tried this one, n... IT'S SUPER COMFY!!! Wow! I loved it! N, since it's in outlet, it was only like $30! I am so getting that!

I used to pick shoes from just "looks", but now I'm a mother, n I have big feet.lmao To me, shoes have to be comfy! That's very important!!!

Then I wonder what else they have... checking on the Yep, I found their website. Dr. Scholl's Shoes They have some other cute shoes, I like it. I think I will be getting more pairs...

My First Tattoo Design

I am planning to get my first tattoo on my shoulder! Yay! Since this is gonna be my first, I wanted it to be something lil special...

So even though my hubby was not too happy about me getting cross anchor tattoo(only because he doesn't have his cross anchor tattoo yet), I wanted something with cross anchor tattoo because my hubby's born to be a Boatswain's mate(that's I believe!). I am very proud of him about that, n I love being a BM wife. So...

I actually got this heart idea from the Internet, but of course there's no girly-cross anchor design... So I just draw it.

I am not sure if I can really get this one... But I think I like this. What do you think???

Revised: I just sent this pic to my hubby via e-mail, n... HE LIKES IT!!! Yay!

Using Left Over: Baked Meatsauce Spaghetti

I forgot to take a pic. when it was ready, so sorry that it's already taken to eat in the pic...

Anyway, when I make these sauce or soup, I always make a lot. N most of time, I just keep in the freezer. So today, I used the meat sauce I made last time. I defrosted from last night, of course I could use it just like that. But it's not really exciting if I just make same old spaghetti , is it?

What I did was so easy, simply put cheese on top n bake it! It's almost like baked ziti, just much

N kids love it!!

Keep Wishing Til I Get: Metropark

OK, before I start this, here's what this about. Like most of girls, I am not an exception. I see it, I want But, you know, as a SAHM, I don't have that kinda money to buy whatever I want. So I see it, I want it, but I can't get that today. That's more like it.

Then if I really really want it, I would even dream about it. Sometimes I forget about it as time goes by, which is not a bad thing, maybe, but at the moment, I really really want it! Probably I am enjoying "wishing" it?

So why don't I keep wishing til I get it!lol I don't know, maybe my hubby will find some clues in here so he can get me something???lol Nah, I am not really counting on that (Well, if you are reading this, honey, then go ahead n surprise me!!!)

Anyway, most of time, when I find something I want, I just wanna talk about it. It would makes me happy


So me n my friend Lani went to Ala Moana Shopping Center(again!) to just do some window shopping(AGAIN!lol). Since last time we found this store called "Metropark", we are so in love with this store!!! Though we haven't bought anything from this store It's just, everytime we go there, it's not "good-time-to-shop" for

But EVERYTIME we go there(well, we've been there only twice), we find not one but a few clothes we REALLY REALLY want! Oh, I should have took some pictures while we were there!(Are we allow to take pics in the store anyway?) Fortunately, I found their web site! <Metropark> Yay, me!! So here's a couple things I

Here comes SUPER Geek!

Haha, that's meeeee!!!
Once in a while, I turn to a SUPER geek from just a No, I don't need a full N, I am damn proud of myself!lmao

Anyway, why did I turn to a SUPER geek this time? Here's what happened.(by Monk) I was looking at my blog... not just a blog, my baby, precious blog last night. Oh, I love my OK, I was looking at it last night, n I noticed that my side bar is getting longer n longer... Damn, I've done almost 70 posts only in this month??? I mean, as I said before, this blog is my "self-satisfaction" blog, but So the way I put archive(which is the best way after I really considered), it shows all this month's post titles. N top of that... I love using all those gadgets! Just so fun to add a lil something on my blog. Plus I have some badges n stuff... Now it's way too long... I almost don't see the Anyway I don't like that looks...

I've seen some blogs have 3 columns. Hmm, I can use that. I can separate my personal gadgets n links n followers? That would be neat! So I checked Blogger dashboard... Where... where is 3 column templates????? NOOOOO!!!!! It's not in dashboard!!!

I searched n checked on the Internet... Yea, there are some 3 column templates... but it seems I will need a lil "study" for that... It's not like one-click thing... Especially I like the style of my blog right now, I don't want a major change...

First I need try. When you get a new clothes, you would try it on first, right? Same here, I need to try before risking my precious baby blog. So I created test I can try there, do whatever I

I've already came this far... then you know, I gotta do what I gotta do! I just need to be a SUPER geek!lmao Alright! Let's do this!!

Under a Big Tree

One thing I love about Hawaii is these big trees.

Well, I am not really a tree person. If there's a tree in a front of our house then I would worry about bugs n stuff before thinking about getting some good shades n another good points. I don't like living in woods, cuz I don't like bugs n lil

But I like these big trees, the trees just like in story books... N when I stand under the tree n look up... That's a wonderful view right there! You can see this beautiful blue sky with shiny sunlight between all leaves... Isn't that wonderful?

Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile

Huh!? Look, what I found!lol

This is Michele's favorite jacket. Do we need jackets in Hawaii??? Yes, WE need jackets in this

OK, how many of you actually pay attention to inside of your or kids clothes?? Just the other day, only because it was just thrown on the floor n it was opened... N I was like...

"Huh...? WTH is that???"

First I thought it was a bug. Then I didn't see its moving, so next I thought it was a hair ball.(Yea, two girls living in this house, what do you expect?) Then I got closer... Oh, my! What a cute surprise! She has this jacket for a while now, n I didn't know til now!

It's not like I found a diamond, but it sure made me a lil happy...:):):) This is exactly a small happiness in my ordinary life, n it just made my day more

Spelling Notebook

So I already showed the flash card I made(in the post "Seriously???") for my 1st grader son, John. That was for new vocabularies, which he has to be able to READ.

There's another thing for this 1st grader... Spelling... Of course it's much harder than just reading. For now he has to learn spelling of 10 vocabularies each week. And there's test on every Thursday.

There's a couple of piece of papers always attached on the composition notebook which he brings home from school, I guess it supposed to be homework... I mean, it's probably what the students are REQUIRED to do at home, AT LEAST. Well it's probably enough for some smart kids to memorize those spelling. But is that enough for our son? Hmmm... Ugh... No.

Again, I feel bad for him that he has to do a lot, but I made this notebook a while ago, n he's been using this for spelling practice.

I use the notebook which he would like. I would say, ENOUGH composition books already! Kids love these character notebooks, so let them use it! N since he's still in 1st grade, I add lines on each page so it'll be easy for him practicing "neat" writing. I've found the website which you can print out these lined pages with some characters on, it's very nice actually, but it would cost a lot after a while... N it's just hard too keep all printing stuff. So I think using a notebook is easier. It works great for us.

Oh, well... It's almost time to pick him up from school,

Summer Slam 2009 - Taker takes ALL

Well, not really all. I just wanted to say N I gotta make a statement again... This blog is TOTALLY "Self-Satisfaction" blog, so probably none of my readers would even care about, but WWE is a BIG THING to me!

Well, the first half of Summer Slam was really cool. Rey-Rey won, MVP won, Cryme Tyme was very close...
Then... Are you ready?

DX! I mean, damn... They are too fun!!! I am so glad they are back N it was very good to see Sweet Chin Music again! Of course they won.:):)

Now, John Cena vs. Randy Orton... WTH was that??? I would say, that was one of worst matches... I mean, too comfusing, then a fan came in the ring n totally stopped the match a second? It was just wrong!!!

Jeff Hardy vs. CM Punk, TLC match... OK, I like Jeff Hardy, but he's way too extream... too suicidal... Is that really safe??? Nobody don't need to stop him??? Well he was alright, after all? But he lost the title... n I didn't like that...

BUT! Then all lights in the arena went off! You know what that means.:):):)(I mean, if you are a WWE

Yes! The Undertaker is BACK!!! Wow, that was too COOL!!! I was not happy about the result of the last two matches, but I would never give up on WWE, they know what we would like!lol

Lyric Sunday: Top Of The World

Oh, I love The Carpenters songs... It's just right! I am pretty sure you all know this 70's famous sibling duo, but even if this name doesn't familiar to you, you must've listened to their songs. They are actually very popular in Japan. Their songs have been used on many shows n TV commercials, that may be why. OK, I have many songs I love, but I pick this song today. It's just a right song for me right now, I guess.

Top Of The World

Such a feelin's comin' over me
There is wonder in most everything I see
Not a cloud in the sky
Got the sun in my eyes
And I won't be surprised if it's a dream

Everything I want the world to be
Is now coming true especially for me
And the reason is clear
It's because you are here
You're the nearest thing to heaven that I've seen

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

Something in the wind has learned my name
And it's tellin' me that things are not the same
In the leaves on the trees
and the touch of the breeze
There's a pleasin' sense of happiness for me

There is only one wish on my mind
When this day is through I hope that I will find
That tomorrow will be just
The same for you and me
All I need will be mine if you are here

I'm on the top of the world lookin' down on creation
And the only explanation I can find
Is the love that I've found
Ever since you've been around
Your love's put me at the top of the world

by The Carpenters

This song will make you happy for I just love it!!

Movie Night: White Chicks

White Chicks (2004)

Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, Busy Phillips, Terry Crews, Jennifer Carpenter, Jaime King, Lochlyn Munro, Jessica Cauffiel, Frankie Faison, Brittany Daniel

When I watched: August 22, 2009 (not the first time)
Where I watched: Home, on FX

It's STILL funny! I was not even planning to sit down n watch it all to the end, but it just caught

I remember that when I watched this movie first time, I BELIEVED there will be a sequel!lol Just because this is too funny! I would say, THEY didn't wanna do it again...?lol

Looking at them... I thought they look nothing close to females, but somehow, when I compare to the real Wilson sisters, they kinda look

Damn, I had a good laugh

Movie Night: Mr. Deeds

Mr. Deeds (2002)

When I watched: August 22, 2009 (not the first time)
Where I watched: Home, on TBS

I love this movie! It's comedy, but this guy Mr. Deeds, he's a perfect nicest guy!lol

The first time I watched this movie was... while we were staying on Little Creek AFB, VA, just after we got married, n still looking for the apartment... I believe I bought this VHS at a convenience store... it was one of those great deals thing... I always liked Adam Sandler, so I didn't know about this movie when I bought the VHS, but I knew I would like it.

Obviously this is a remake of "Mr. Deeds Goes to Town", but this movie has a lot of Adam Sandler potentials.

I've watched so many times already, but I still sit down n watch when I found this on my channel Gotta love Adam Sandler!lol

Sick nights... What is this thing anyway!?

I totally had a relaxing day today... I was gonna take kids out, but Michele started throwing up last night, n there it was, same thing as John, she continued throwing up every 20 to 30mins., til 4am, total of 9 times... Poor baby... So I ended up sleeping in the bathroom again. Oh, my body hurt so bad this

What is this thing anyway? Well I found out from John's teacher, many kids in his class plus his teacher got sick all same time, which means it came from his class... The good thing was, they didn't get any fever or anything else... at least my kids didn't. Just over-night thing, even though it was very very bad. By the next morning, they are fine as usual. But obviously it's very contagious. I haven't got it yet...?

Well, over a month ago, I actually had a similar thing. Mine started with a heavy migraine. Well so, I thought it was a migraine. I have that sometimes. N when it gets worse, I will have vomiting as well. So I did, n I still thought it was because of that migraine. So I took all kind of headache medicines, but it didn't get any better. Then I started to get dehydrated... only I didn't realize that... SO, my face color turned GREEN(not pale, because I'm so, I couldn't even walked to the bathroom, I had to crawl there... I didn't have fever either. Then I remembered that I've heard when we get dehydrated, the temperature would go down... So I drank my sports drink(from Japan... It works SO WELL!), then right after that, I felt heat... Stupid me, then finally I realized that it was not a migraine anymore, but it was some kinda flu!lol So I took NyQuil, n it never fail...

So what I had was probably not exactly same as my kids had. But the way of vomiting was so similar. Throwing up again n again didn't make me feel any better! So I knew how they exactly felt like... Poor my babies...

Again, good thing, they are totally fine... My body might hurt a lil bit, but it's totally worth it!

John's View #2

John brought his camera today! Yay!

Date: August 21, 2009
Location: The way to Waikiki, and Waikiki

The vies from the bus... Ala Moana Park.

Another Ala Moana Park...

He just wanna show off what he got... He loves Mario.

"Mommy! Look! FISH!!"lol

The Water Fall inside a shopping center. Nice.

The Parrot, also in a shopping center... Interesting...

The BEACH! Yay!

He's targeting the bird, of course.

Yeah, another FISH!!!lol

A palm tree... Hawaii...

Their lunch. The LEGO car toys were already OUT! BOOOO!

They were taking naps... they didn't even fly
I like letting him take It's just... interesting... Don't you think?


We stopped by LEGO store in Ala Moana Shopping Center on the way home.

This store just opened last weekend. We came last week too, but they have the open event or something, so there was a long line to just get in the store! But this time, there was no line. The store was still busy though...

They had this fill-a-cup-with-blocks deal, a small cup is $7.99, a big one is $14.99. It's just fun to buy this way. So we got 2 small cups, n 1 big cup, plus 2 building plates.

It's good for them being creative with these LEGO blocks. Those big blocks for toddler are just too big to storage, n those ones in a box are way too difficult for little kids. They just need random blocks and be creative with their imagination. So it works great for them.:)
