Gong Xi Fat Chai!!! I only got 2 ang pao, but that's okay XD I really really want a good chinese dinner though.

I just watched the dog of flanders. That's one tearjerker movie! I hate sad animated movies, but I watch them anyway. I was crying a river by the end of the movie. Hotaru no haka was another movie that left me sobbing like a fool. Maybe I'm too sensitive. I even cried when watching candy candy! Time to rent something more cheerful. Y'know.. I just noticed that this blog page has my entire 2003 entries in one page O_o;; That's how dead this site is. Wow..

I was on my way home on BART (bay area rapid transit) and in front of me, there's this thing on the back of the seat in front of me. It looks like a giant booger coz it's kinda greenish, or a tiny part of a used bubblegum. It's gross. I've seen people do gross things on the BART. Like spit on the side of the wall. Ugh.

I was looking around and found
this. At first I thought it's just a book about how to use painter and photoshop for coloring artworks. Eventhough I've pretty much given up art, it really interests me. So I bought it -_-;; It hasn't arrived yet though. Well, we'll see how this software'll help me to get into art again.

I didn't get to watch saint seiya on cartoon network. I heard it was butchered horribly anyway. but I got almost all the DVD sets except for the hades chapter. I'll probably get it too sometime. It was a pretty good deal. My only complaint is the bad english subtitles -_-; They keep using the chinese names of the characters on the english subs. Ikki is.. Yafei O_o

Saturday, September 13, 2003, 12:36 p.m.
Saint Seiya's on toonami now! XD I'll probably watch it tonight if I can remember. It's at 7 pm on saturdays. I could use the nostalgic rush.

My bf saw a ghost outside my house. I told my neighbors upstairs and they said they knew that there is a ghost here O_o;; They said, one midnight, their micromave fell and nothing was touching it. And then one night several appliances and wall clocks stopped working. My dogs haven't sensed anything yet so far, and I truly hope they won't

Tuesday, February 25, 2003, 10:00 p.m.
Mu.. I wanna play star ocean 3. I got my bf hooked up on so2. I kept thinking goku's voice actor is hiiro yuki *_*; But then hiiro yuki didn't do kane. I just bought breath of fire: dragon quarter. It's.. hard. I really wanna play it using game shark coz I'm a lazy bastard. But my ps2 is modified and I can't use game shark on it. And my bf won't lend me his. He said it's cheating -_-; Who cares?? I just don't have a lot of time to spend building up levels ><;

I saw the perfect example of a "dumb blonde" today. Well, maybe she's not dumb, since I don't even know her. But she was wearing a cropped halter top paired with tiger print hot pants and constantly talking on her cell phone while walking on the street. I said street, not sidewalk. Well, at least she got all the attention she wants.

My apartment has stupid electrical wiring. Somebody connected more appliances to one 150amp breaker than it can hold. I had my laptop, dsl modem, TV, some lights, and a room heater on a the same time. And apparently, my neighbors upstairs have some more appliances connected to the same breaker. And, pop, it went. It has happened several times now, and apparently my dsl modem couldn't take it anymore. It's dead now ><;; I gotta call earthlink and see if I can get it replaced.... and how much they're gonna charge me. Back to the old dial up for now.. Oyah, Happy New Year~~~

Saturday, January 18, 2003, 09:27 a.m.
Yesterday, my bf called my cellphone when I was at work. I picked it up and answered with my store's greeting. I need to work less...

Wednesday, January 1, 2003, 02:56 p.m.
Pitas was being stupid and ate my entry... Anyway, happy new year! I went to embarcadero to see fireworks but it wasn't big. Kinda dissapointed. Better than staying home doing nothing, I guess. Too bad I'm getting sick. I think it's because I was walking in the storm going home from the train station. It was pretty bad considering somebody actually pulled over and asked if I was alright and wanted a ride. heh.

Another good thing that happened to me this year is that I got my broadband back. And I signed up for a new webhost because the old one seemed to dissapear. I was getting fed up with them anyway.
Now if only I can get myself to draw again...

I finally moved my apartment! It was a tough moving. Two of my friends flaked their promise to help me, so it was just me and my bf. Anyway, the new place is a lot bigger than my old studio, but it was a mess -_-;; The manager is a slob who doesn't do anything. It's annoying when you're tired after moving stuff and couldn't even take a shower because the shower box was so dirty. At least I have a backyard now and my dogs are happy :D

My bf's car just got robbed -_-;;;; I feel so bad because it happenned here in my neighborhood while's he's visiting me. His playstation2 and GTA vice city were stolen. Thankfully those're the only ones stolen. When he suddenly called a few minutes after he left my apartment saying he got robbed, I thought somebody actually put a knife on his neck or something O_O;; I was really worried. My neighborhood's never been the best in the city anyway, but it's ironic that I'm moving out today and it happened on the last day I'm here. Oh well.. I'm buying a new playstation2 and GTA vice city for him. I hope he won't be too mad...

It's Halloween! I went to the castro district in san francisco, where a lot of people gather and hang out in their halloween costumes every year. I saw a lot of interesting stuff. But the most interesting thing I saw was a show by 4 guys who called themselves 'gayglo'. It was a show on the window of the 4th floor of an apartment building where the guys danced in nothing but glow in the dark bodypaint. I love san francisco.

Tuesday, October 29, 2002, 10:38 p.m.
It's my birthday.. and I did the stupidest thing I've ever done in my life. I.. wore 2 different shoes to work -_-;;;; And my co-worker noticed it... I wanted to dig a hole and bury myself forever.

Friday, June 14, 2002, 08:08 a.m.
My web space account just got cancelled coz I haven't paid for 2 months -_-;;; But nobody told me or gave me any warning!! This is ridiculous. They can't just cancel my account without notice!! ><;;;; Agh!!

Cat, I hope you're having a good time in japan! ^o^ Thanks for calling me. I almost had a heart attack XD

Today is absolutely one of the worst day to be alive. Everything just seems to go wrong. First, early in the morning, my co-worker messed up our accounting system database. So, my boss was flipped out because we have 0,000 worth of accounts receivable floating around in cyberspace and prolly not get paid. And then, 2 of our copy machines went down and will not be fixed until tomorrow, and we still have stuff to finish. And a lot of the jobs we got just can't seem to print right. It's almost 10 pm now and we're still working on a project that we just can't seem to get right. I think we're jinxed....

I got another dog... -_-;; My friend went back to indonesia for good 2 days ago. And she left her dog with me. Now I really feel like a mom with 2 kids. I need to move to a bigger apartment in a better neighborhood ~_~

I was too lazy to blog yesterday, but it was one of the best days of my life. First off, I got my H1 (working) visa!! ^____^ That means I can stay in the US and work! Yay! I was in a good mood all day after I heard the news. So me and a few friends celebrated at an indian restaurant XP~
Second, I got a 'thank you' bouquet from some customers whom I helped with their project. They said I did an awesome job ^_^ It was very flattering.
Now I need to find a new apartment and better internet connection... I hate aol.. -_-;;;;

It never entered my mind before.. but you and you just had to post that quote and your interpretation.
Green goblin: "Eek! A spider!!"
Spidey: "Don't worry honey, I'll take care of it for you"

........ -_-;

I think most of the people I know are mostly blogging about the bad stuff that's been happening to them lately. Me included. This week is especially bad for me -_-; My boss is out of town until friday. So he left me with the other assistant manager to run the store. And for some reason, when my boss isn't available, jobs keep coming in -_-;; So it's been really busy. I worked 15.5 hours today. I think I'm gonna be dead by the end of the week. And then, my dad called and said he's coming for a visit ><;; I don't have good relationship with my family, so naturally I'm not that enthusiastic in meeting him. On top of all that, my current working permit is about to expire on may 1st. And I'm still waiting for approval from INS for my application for a working visa. It'll all be revealed by this week. The result will decide whether I can stay in the US or go back to my home country.
Yep, definitely a nerve-wrecking week...
Not as bad as being robbed though.. Now that's bad.

I got the freakiest phone call on thursday morning at 12.30 am. I picked it up and said "hello", and the person on the other side, which was a guy, said "are you wearing your underwear?" O_o;;;;; So I got up and asked "who is this??". He kept asking "do you have underwear on?" It was so freaky that I just hung up. I called my boyfriend right after that, and he said not to worry, don't use *69 to track him down, and just call the police if he calls again. Well, he didn't call again, but from that day on, I turned into a paranoid about perverted stalkers. Especially when my dog growls out of the blue towards the TV or the window behind it, as if there's someone there. He's been doing it quite often lately... I'm scared.. ._.
Some people actually signed my guestbook despite the site being horribly outdated!! XD Thanks mazi!! :D I'm seriously losing the ability to draw anything #_#;; Well, not like I had the ability before anyway XP But this has been the worst block ever..

Another day with amazingly annoying customer... I hate cheap customers. How can people not understand that for a color copy is national standard??? She said the price is ridiculous. Even stupider, she said she could do it herself with her inkjet printer -_-; She's comparing our xerox docucolor 2060, which costs about 0000, to her crappy inkjet?? Go to hell, bitch.

I got locked out of my apartment for the 83754936459th time on friday >_<;;;; Well, okay it's only the 3rd time... in about 7 months.. ^^;; You'd think I've learned my lesson, but I didn't.. Well anyway, I was just gonna take my dog for a walk before going to work. So I turned the small lock on the door handle, not the deadbolt, and closed the door. A second later, I realized that I forgot to bring my keys ><;; I had to take my dog to work that day. Later that day, me and 3 of my co-workers were planning to hang out together. So they came over to help me solve the problem by breaking into my apt. I just got a new manager, and he's never in, and his phone's not hooked up yet. So, asking for a spare key is out of question. My friends were trying to pick the lock and I was looking for other alternatives, while convincing my neighbors that I was locked out and not a bunch of thieves ^^;; Anyway, I found a way from the emergency ladder to my bathroom window. It was really hard to open and it could only open a little bit, and I could barely fit into it. But at least I made it inside :D

Monday, March 25, 2002, 10:57 p.m.
I'm feeling crappy -_- Yesterday, I cried for no reason. I think it's the hormones. And today, I had headache for the whole day. Agh.
Been renting weird anime titles lately. I finished watching the whole boogiepop phantom series, which was pretty good. A lot of the episodes didn't make sense to me though. Maybe I'm just stupid. And then, yesterday, I rented soultaker.. which just plain sucked. I only saw the first episode and didn't finish the rest ^^;; Let's see.. what else did I watch.. Rei was talking about 'ima soko ni iru boku' quite a while ago. So I rented that too. At first I thought it was gonna be a cutesy kiddy anime, but it turned out to be a very serious story, with a lot of violence towards children, which I found a bit disturbing. Didn't really like it, but I'd rent the next volume when it comes out for rent.
Akane>>Kino has kazehikaru #9! I bought it yesterday ^_^ I think I gotta read the story from the start. I still have trouble understanding the story (especially the history part), but the humor is pretty easy to understand XD

I went to cheesecake factory with my japanese friend on thursday, coz he was leaving on the next day. It was a nice restaurant, and the food was good. When I was walking towards our seats, I saw a couple of old ladies seating beside each other. They were twins. But the most interesting thing was that they were wearing exactly the same clothes, from hats to fur coats. They even hang their coats the same way, draping them over the chairs across their seats. And it seems that they ordered the same food and wine too. They even shared a dessert! XD It was so interesting that I couldn't resist taking a photo with my digital camera. I didn't use the flash, of course XD
Akane>>Gyah.. My boss readjusts his crotch all the time ><;; It IS hard not to notice... Kazehikaru.. is up to vol 9?? O_o;; Maybe I should ask kino if they can special order for me... I like oni-fukuchou too~~ XD

Tuesday, March 19, 2002, 03:07 a.m.
Evey>>Thank you!! ^_^ It's hard to get a nice photo of my dog like this one. Glad you like it XD
Ryuuen>>I got your HP Valentine card a long time ago ^^; Thank you!! XD Sorry I didn't reply for a long time -_-;;;
Cat>>You dissapeared again!! ><;; Btw, sorry that I can't be online earlier during the day -_-;; I'm lucky if I can get off work at 6 pm.. which is already 9 pm over there..
Akane>>Kyaa~ You read kazehikaru too?? ^____^ I wonder what the latest volume is now.. my local kinokuniya doesn't carry the title T_T

Sunday, March 17, 2002, 09:34 p.m.
My friend from japan came here to sanfran!! He'll be staying at a youth hostel near my place. Today we went to a lot of tourist places. First, we went to chinatown. It was raining pretty hard though. And it was really cold ><; But then after I showed him my work place, the sky suddenly cleared up. So we walked to the SFMOMA (museum of modern arts), which drained me pretty badly, coz we hadn't had anything to eat since morning. But after that, my cousin was willing to take us around by car :D So we went to places that can only be accessible by car, or at least a lot easier to access by car. Such as lombard st, palace of fine arts, coit tower, and vista point of golden gate bridge. All in one day -_-;; Tomorrow, I'm gonna try to get off work early so I can take him to fisherman's wharf. No trip to SF is complete without a visit to the wharf.
I better get some rest now. I'm so beat.... and in badly need to brush up my japanese.. I can't speak japanese anymore >_<;;;;;
