[091223] Gingerbread cookies

I baked gingerbread cookies for Christmas!!!
This is before icing... (below) and the second picture is with icing! Useless and Neko, my dear friends:)

Well, I baked them with a gingerbread mix... haha, Sean had it for some reason and he asked me if it was mine, but it was not. It was here anyhow, so I used them:D ahaha
Happy gingerbread Christmas to all of you!!!!



[091215] Hello Tom!

We now have a new friend, Tom, little cute baby onion, in a planter:)
Seems like he could not wait until spring comes, he started growing straight to the sky, in December cold air... wahahaha



[091130] Odaiba

I have never really traveled around Tokyo, so it was a very good opportunity for me to travel around with her.
We went to Asakusa, Sakuradamon, and Shinjuku, and we arrived at Odaiba quite late.
Fuji TV station was already closed up and I was so sorry for her because I knew she was looking forward to it... aww.
We took a ride on the ferris wheel and had a delicious Tonkatsu for dinner:)

Again, I had to hide her for her privacy... Hehehe



[091129] Tokyo Disney Sea

Aahhh looong time no write... I missed it so much.

My friend from overseas came to Japan, and she wanted to visit Tokyo Disney Land and Sea, and we made it! For the Sea, my dear friends Jackie and Oichun, and my wonderful colleagues Ami and Suguru joined us. Look how excited we were!

I had to hide her for her privacy... hehehe.



[091012] Sunnie Dayz in Spore wif Ai -Day 4-

I am totally addicted to the fruits! Fruits for breakfast... Mm heaven!

Mama's hearty soup and some butterfly buns. Singapore has a bit of taste that I experienced in Okinawa. They are very different but in some aspects they share the same kind of impression to me. And I love it!

Nashi lemak! If I ever get to live in SG, I would have to be super careful NOT to gain weight, because it will be so easy to put on some weight within a day with all those yummy Singaporean/Malaysian/Chinese dishes!

Jackie kindly took me to Vivo city (shopping mall) to do the last minute shopping for souvenirs . After that, we had some creamy & spicy crab for dinner:D accompanied with a Tiger beer!!!

I think I already gained a couple of kilos during the stay! But it couldn't be helped, because they have so much delicious food! Ah, heaven!



[091011] Sunnie Dayz in Spore wif Ai -Day 3-

Mm mm mmmmmmm. Dragon fruit, pear... I could eat the whole plate, I mean it! Mwahaha

Fish flake pastries from mama. YUMMYYYYYYYY!!!

Today is the Jurong Bird Park day. An iguana was resting on the roof of the entrance. So cute!

Birds are beautiful, unless they throw out their bombs on top of me when they fly over me. Every time they fly over my head, I get nervous because they might be pooping on me. Yes, you never know when they do the things.....AHAHA

Plata for lunch. Rhys got a drink that was soooooo pink! It looked and tasted very foreign to me.

YUM YUM! What else can I say:)

Merlion in Sentosa Island. It was quite big and its eyes were blinking. Wooooow.

I liked this Hump Ahead Sign very much! Thank you for warning. Hahaha

I love this picture, thank you very much Rhys and Jackie!! (Letf: Rhys, Middle: Jackie, Right: Ai))



[091010] Sunnie Dayz in Spore wif Ai -Day 2-

We went out to a local food court nearby for breakfast, with Jackie's Mama:)
Look how delicious it looks! And it really is!! 

There was a market next to the food place, and there you go, welcome to Singapore, the king of the fruits, DURIAN!!! ahahahahaha

Her mama bought two durian for me and put them in the trunk, but it smelled from the trunk in the entire car:D wahahahaha
Today was the zoo day:) I wanted to visit Singapore zoo. I love animals!!!! Here is me, feeding the emu a tiny banana:) Thank you Jackie and Rhys, for taking me there!!!!

At night, we went to Night Safari, because it is right next to the zoo, and there was a halloween thing going on. The animal trail was so fun to walk around, and I really enjoyed the halloween things; many scary people were there... and they were hiding behind the trees to scare the hell out of people. I want to do that again sometime!!!!!



[091009] Sunnie Dayz in Spore wif Ai -Day 1-

My first time out to an asian country except Japan!
I went to work on the 8th in the morning, and took a half day off in the afternoon, jumped in the limousine bus to the airport, and finally, I was in Singapore in the night:D

At the airport, my dear friend, Jackie Lee, was waiting for me. We had never met until that moment, we had just known each other through the work and our mutual co-workers, but we were so sure that we have lots in common in thoughts, likes and dislikes, somehow.
So, when I came up with the idea of my trip to Singapore, Jackie kindly offered me a place to stay; her room in the cute apartment.

On the 9th, yum yum yummy Singaporean food greeted me:) (Thank you so much Jackie's mom!!!)
I was like, I LOVE it here already!!!!!

Egg tarts! Hmmmm Yum!!! I love all the fruits they have!!!!!!! So fresh and juicy:) 

We did a prank to JY (who is from the Singapore office of our company), and my role then was to pretend to be a girl from Hong Kong who was born and lived in the states, and is a friend of Jackie's. The scenario was something like we were shopping in a shopping mall around lunch time, JY and their colleagues were shopping in their lunch break (a special thanks to Rhys, who took care of setting up all the situation, like take him out to the mall etc;), and we just bump into them and say ooooooohhh hey, this is my friend from HK... blah blah blah:) It went quite well! JY didn't notice that it was me at first. When he kinda realized that I cannot really speak Chinese even though I was supposed to be from HK, he got suspicious about the whole thing, and Jackie couldn't hold her laugh looking at his face, then we finally told everything to him. I still remember what he said to me. We asked who he thought I was, and he goes, "Hmm... Ai, ah? So you really came here ah."

After lunch and the prank, we walked by the China town, and Fullerton Hotel for sightseeing.

What a fun day!!!



[090926] Creating a cartoon

Ladies and gentlemen, here I introduce this new character in our cartoon...

Special note: he loves sausages.



[090921] Coronado Island

It is my last day today... it's been so fast as if I'd just arrived yesterday.

It was already close to 6 pm when we got there... and still enjoyed the beautiful view.
Thanks to food network, I was craving for ice cream and muffins... and we do know that there is an ice cream place in Hotel Del Coronado. We passed by the ice cream shop, but I didn't get any, because I was still stuffed with warm spinach salad from the living room :P

See the bird in this picture?
We were waiting and hoping to see him catch a fish, but he was disturbed by a smaller dude (yes, he was mad!) and flew away at last. Hmm, no fun!



[090920] La Jolla

La Jolla is such a beautiful place...

Last time we came here; La Jolla Cove, there was a mad woman who saw that some people including us got out of the fence and went closer to the cliff.
I remember she said, "Hey guys, don't you see the sign that says 'Stay out of the cliff' right there?" Yes, there sure was a sign at that time, but today, there wasn't. there wasn't even the gate... seemed like somebody took it out. Haha:) When we got there, there were some tourists went way down from the cliff; we didn't know that you could actually walk down to the water.

Picture below is of the birds that are resting their wings on the cliff (I guess they are cormorants, seagulls, and brown pelicans.)

This is one of the brown pelicans flying around and around over the cliff. I couldn't quite capture it because it was going to fast and far...

And we also met this little cute squirrel who built his house right in front of the fence. Adorable!

Aww I wanted to hold him so bad!!! XD



[090919] Inflatable World

Happy Birthday Bella!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Today, we went to Bella's 5th birthday party near Mission Center.
The place is called Inflatable World, and there are many air-filled sliders of giant ship, gorilla, shark... I was going to be just looking at the children have fun, but they got us to wear socks and slide!! Ah, it was so fun.

Here is a picture of the lovely cupcake that Bella made. And it was yum!!!!

After the party, we went back home to have a quick shower to rinse off all the sweat and everything... (Climbing up on the sliders and running with the children was something that I had not done for ages!) It was not until we got in that we finally cut off the green bands we got from Inflatable World.

I wonder if Bella is having another party next year... I'm in! Hahaha:)



[090917] Sea World

Went to the Sea World!!! Even though we only got there at around 2:30pm, we didn't miss the Shamu (killer whales) show :D
We sat in soak zone, but Shamu didn't splash at us... Lucky us!? Hehe



[090916] Old Town

Yay! I stole this ladybug dude from the trunk today!! Mwahaha!
He is sitting on the canon in the plaza in Old Town. So proud!



[090914] Ocean Beach

This is something I do every single time I visit San Diego. Going to the Living Room Coffee House! I had Raspberry Cheesecake. Since almost everything comes in a generous portion in the states, I knew that I wouldn't be able to finish if I ordered anything else with my cake, like salads, sandwiches, etc. But there was a green salad looking yummy on our table, so I couldn't resist to taste it... (Who ordered it? Hehehe, thank you...)

After the late lunch, we went to Ocean Beach to check out the antique shops there.
There is our favorite antique shop, but funny, I never cared about the store name... Okay, next time, I will keep my eye open and find out what the shop name is:) The picture below is taken from the front door of the shop. Hope this may be a wee hint for those of you who know OB pretty well...

One of the reasons why I love OB is that there is a dog beach and it is very soothing for me to walk around. I am a dog person. Things that come to my mind when I hear the word "OB" are; Hippies, Skate borders, Antique shops, Dogs, and Oysters:) I adore this place!
