can't catch a break.

Wouldn't it be nice?
To actually be able to do the things you want.
Is that asking for too much??
Fine...I'll settle for being able to speak my mind.
No, I can't do that either?

fighting for air.

catchy chorus.

all grown up.

Is that a smile Teanuh?
Never mind, it actually looks more like a smirk!
Regardless, Happy Birthday Baby Sister!!!
You've always been more like the older sister...
Thanks for always keeping me grounded.
This will be your year, I know it!
Btw...layoff on the snark yo!

smart guy, you are.

When in doubt, just smile and agree with her.
Life is so much easier that way.

lee hom wang.

I'm partial to Lee Hom Wang's music.
It probably has something to do with his ability to mix
old traditional Chinese music with more modern sounds.
I especially like how he incorporates the Erhu in his songs.
And yes, it does help that he is easy on the eyes.

fool you are.

Please. Stop. Talking.
I'm begging you.

tis true, my friend.

Umm, if you must know....
your laugh is almost always funnier than your jokes!!

i need a girl.

"I need a girl that looks young even though she's old...
I like that kind of girl..."
*Geez Taeyang, give us a chance buddy, we get old.
We can't help it sometimes. Aging is hard stuff.

Didn't like what you heard, huh?
That's the problem with eavesdropping,
you just never know....

weekend wrap up.

Because I refused to watch Planet of the Apes 
(seriously, that movie looks borderline tragic..pets thanks)
the husband and I ended up watching Crazy, Stupid, Love instead.
It was pretty entertaining, to say the least.
I mean...we had pretty people to look at and
the story line was sorta, kinda amusing.
Of course there were scenes where I rolled my eyes from all the cheesy lines
but there were also times where I laughed out loud.
However, the best moment of the night was....
as we were walking out movie theater, I mentioned how cut Ryan Gosling was...
and that was when Tommy said "I could look like that if I wanted to"
which had me rolling all over the cement floor of the parking lot LAUGHING.
He was quite affronted with my reaction and decided to throw down the gauntlet..
Give him 6 months he declared and he too will look like Ryan Gosling.
Or at least his body will. Funny, he is.
If he wins, for 3 months I must give up wearing and buying heels, 
watching Korean dramas, and talking about Dirk.
And if he loses he will have to tattoo how smart I am across his chest... 
Sigh...this is just too easy!!!!!


My younger sister, Teanuh, is a die hard Taylor Swift fan.
It's weird, actually, that she's even a fan of anything
since she's anti social and hates people in general.
She's super sarcastic....her wit biting and her humor dry.
The girl makes my poor husband cry on a daily basis.'s always surprising to see her sing along to a "Tay Tay" song.
Her birthday's on the 1st of September....
the husband bought her tickets to see Taylor Swift live in concert..
Maybe she'll be a little nicer to the brother-in-law,
Not a chance!!!!!!

slow down...

Take it easy.
Half the stuff you worry about...
never even happens.

your song.

If there were ever a song that I wish I had written,
 this would be it.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


Student #1: Was George Washington as cool as you described him to be?
Student #2: How do you even know if all that really happened?
Student #3: You're stupid. She knows cause she was there. 
Student #1: That's retarded. How can she be there when it happened??
Student #3: Why not? She's old enough.
Student #2: Tru dat. She is old. So you knew him??

*I'm old enough to know the 1st President of the U.S.?? For real?
Great...where is that freaking eye cream when I need it???

what do you want.

i <3 this version.

just do it.

Today must be my lucky day...
Dirk with swagger....that's something new.
I don't think I've ever seen him look better..
Ok, I lie. He looks pretty dang good on the court too.


"I was a Ranger in the army.
You will never ever ever catch me throwing up peace signs.
It's so cheesy and I don't understand why 
so many Asians feel the need to do so.
Over my dead body."
-scott hoang

*SCOTTFACE is that you???
 Throwing up not one but two peace signs???
And with a smile????


Yay!!! The video is finally here.
Bruno Mars and Eminem in the same video??
Today is definitely a good day!

Even if you’re on the right track,
you’ll get run over if you just sit there.
-will rogers

*just in case you needed a reminder

Van's Last Stand!!!

Before the party started....
After a few drinks...
The best cousins ever!!! 
Thanks for driving seven hours to party with the crew.
Yes, that's right...THE CITY HUNTER was at the party!!
Don't you wish you were there!
Gasp...Vivian did not just kiss HIM!!
 Rosie & The Bachelorette!!
Thuy & Mai...thanks for all your help!!'s gotta be a pretty big occasion to see Thuy.
She's like a unicorn...
you hear about em...but you don't really see them.
Then there were the games.....

And all that was before 9:00...
I'm afraid I'm still recovering.
You know you're old when you leave the clubs at 1:00.....
and you still have trouble moving the next day!!!
Congrats again Van!!

your love.

Green with envy.
I think it's really unfair to be that pretty
and still be so talented.

weekend wrapup.

In recovery mode.
Too old for partying.
Tired, I am.

a pity.

You're absolutely right. 100% correct, you are.
But since you've elected to do nothing about it, 
it doesn't really matter, does it?

all is good.

Not only do I get a new set of students this year,
but with all the changes in the Dallas District,
I get a new classroom with a brand new team of teachers!!
The thing that worried me the most, not the 190 students
that showed up on my class roster,
but whether I would be able to put up my Dirk shrine in time. year just won't start out right without it.
Been back at work for a week now
but first day with the students officially starts tomorrow.
Wish me luck!!

pumped up kicks.

Absolutely addicted to the chorus of this song....

I'm sorry you're always being misunderstood.
It's probably because your mouth doesn't function very well.
You should try explaining yourself clearly, with words maybe.
Or a game of charades...that might work too!!!
Anything but just walking away...
If you keep on doing that...
no ones ever going to hear what you have to say.


Not too shabby, huh?
I think I took some pretty decent shots
considering how nauseous I was from listening
to them coo love words to one another.
They were disgustingly affectionate.
I kid, I kid...not really.
I guess that's why they're getting married =p
Congrats to the happy couple!!
BTW...I'm hosting Van's Bachelorette Party this weekend!!
She's going to have one last stand before she ties the knot!!
Woo-hooo!!! Yay!!!!!

*Also...thanks Chan for being patient and teaching me
how to edit and take pictures for my fashion blog.
Sorry for all the late night calls and lengthy text messages.

speak up.

Ryan Tedder.....
Oh how I love you so.

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

who's laughing?

There is nothing wrong with holding her purse, absolutely not.
It's sweet and endearing, kinda, sorta.'s not weird that she has GPS on your phone.
She's just concerned and needs to know 
where you're at every second of the day that's all.
Do I think it's strange that you can't give me direct eye contact?
No!!! That's rule #5 on her list, right?
I mean, you can't look at other girls...and I think I'm a girl.
It makes complete sense, I totally understand.
Are we upset that you can't meet up to draft for our Fantasy Football league?
What can you do? You have a cake ball making class to attend.
Do we think you're whooped...?
What? No can you be whooped if you have super balls.
Am I being sarcastic? Me? NEVER.

come on.

Yes, I went back a couple of years.
His music has a different sound now.

not always.

Some times you will.....
and other times you won't. 
Oh well.


Let's keep quiet.
Maybe if they don't hear anything...
They'll go away.
No??? Not my lucky today, huh?
Fist pump in air!!!!

block after block.

I can't figure out if I like this song or not.
It's catchy and it's stuck in my head but..hmm.

To do as told,
without question...
How great is that?

weekend wrap up.

The husband and I went to the movies Friday night.
Since it was his turn to pick a movie,
he opted to watch 30 Minutes Or Less.
Please don't ask me why he wanted to watch that movie,
I'm still trying to figure it out myself.
Anyhow, while I was ordering snacks
he decided to go in the theater first to save seats.
After purchasing the popcorn and drinks...
I noticed that he was still held up in line.
Apparently the attendant asked to see his ID,
being that the movie was RATED R,
she needed to verify his age.
While he was pulling out his ID to show her,
I walked up to see what the problem was.
She looked at him and then at me and said, 
"oh never mind your mom is can go ahead and go in."

*so needless to say, 
I spent the whole weekend looking up various anti aging creams...
To annoy me even further...
the husband is running around calling me mom.
Nice, isn't it?
Ohhh...also, it finally rained.

Thursday, August 11, 2011


then it rained....and all was changed.

it's a wrap.

My summer officially ends this weekend.
But I can't complain too much,
it was shorter than I liked but definitely longer than everyone elses.
I better get back into teacher mode.
Looking forward to what the new year has in store for me...
Happy Friday folks!!!!

birthday dress.

I must admit, 
I am partial to Matthew Koma's singing.
I think he makes the song.

Talking too much
but doing not enough,
get's nothing done.
You're still stuck.


An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.
-Mahatma Gandi

birthday boy.

 Went to "Serious Pizza" and seriously had a pizza!!

Rosie did her job well.
As you can see the birthday boy was not coherent,
and it was only 10:15.

My buddy Cuong's birthday celebration was earlier tonight.
He wanted to take it easy this year,
so we all met up for some pizza and cold drinks.
As you can see, one thing led to another and Cuong got a tad bit tipsy.
Good job Rosie, you did your Beluga buddies proud!


I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind.
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset.

know that...

Little by little, one travels far.
J.R.R. Tolkien

say what?

You look kind of good with your lip busted wife.
I'll have to punch you in the face periodically.

paid off.

Congrats buddy, you've worked hard.
If anyone deserves it, it's you.

just going to stand there.

"even angels have their wicked schemes
and you take that to new extremes"

Monday, August 8, 2011

confused, you are.

Pretty, yes.
Fake, very much so.
But that's what you wanted though,
so why are you complaining?

can't get you outta my head.

i <3 it.
A commercial that I actually wait for.
Does anyone know who the singer is?
She's awfully good.

someday we'll know.

"So many questions, I need an answer"

don't worry.

I know where I need to be.
The route and directions may be unclear and hazy
but never my drive nor my focus.
Just wait and see.

weekend wrap-up.

Jennifer's visiting for a couple of days.
Maybe I can trick the sister in law into trying on some
clothes and modeling for the fashion blog =p
 Cuong took us to the new hot spot, Sweet Mix.
Geez, it's so pretty I'm afraid to eat it.
Eeep!!! I grew balls and decided to get a tattoo.
 This came in the mail!! What a nice surprise!
Andrea brought Tommy a MK's watch as a go away gift. 
Someone needs to tell her & Scottie when one "goes away"
they're supposed to receive gifts not buy them.
Thanks Annie. Tommy loves it!
Andrea's old room is so empty and forlorn looking. I'm really stuck with just the husband. the time flies.
Two more weeks til the start of a new school year!!
Yikes, so soon!!!!
Someone slow the time down =/

carpe diem.

Apparently, I woke up Saturday morning ready to do just that, to seize the day. I LIKE to do things the hard way, at least that's what I want to believe. But the truth is, I think I'm just an idiot. Years ago, when I was young, very young, in a moment of rebellion, I decided to get a tattoo. It was so horribly painful, I swore up and down I would never come within 5 inches of a needle again. Did I learn?? Obviously not. I never do, to think I'm a teacher too. In a moment of spontaneity Andrea and I both decided to get tattoos. I figured we'd give each other the courage we needed. You'd think that after going to six different tattoo parlors, all of which were closed or too busy, I would take that as a sign not to get one. Did I heed the warning? Nope. I was going to seize the day and get a tattoo, dammit. So when I finally sat in the chair to get inked, I was feeling quite smug. No one was going to deter my plans. That was until the buzzing of the needle was in my ear. After that I was practically crapping in my pants. What was I thinking? My bad, I wasn't. I was trying to seize the damn day. Sigh, did it hurt? Yea, it hurt like hell but I didn't even wince or cry....ok maybe just a little. I was pretty bad-ass if I do say so myself.  That was until I stood up and fainted. Yes, bad-ass Meme took a spin around the room and fell with a plop. The tattoo artist caught me but not before I busted my lip on the arm of the chair. Yea, so now I have a busted lip and a tattoo.  That's some street creds yo! No one's going to want to mess with me now.  No one but Tommy, whose been choking on his own laughter!!! Sigh, I'll never live this down. Carpe diem my arse.
