There was a lot of celebration this week! So thankful. But I was also stunned by the news of Anthony Bourdain’s passing. He was the total package. And he was one of the best storytellers of our time. RIP Bourdain.

Work is winding down. Summer vacation is almost here!! I got to catch up with friends, ate mediocre food, and dealt with terrible customer service. :/

Here we are at the final week of May and entering a new month. Summer is just around the corner! My week was all about family. Our cousin’s daughter + niece graduated from high school. It’s a huge accomplishment! ❤

I had the day off on May 28th, Memorial Day. It was a short week for me.

I’m sleepless sometimes and then I crash. These last few weeks have been something. I must confront everything at this point. Avoidance doesn’t work. 😦 Staying positive is difficult. I must block out the noise and negativity. I tell myself to keep going and I will.

Prayer has helped me. Reading is also comforting.

Please send good vibes. 

Thank you.

So what was my week like? The highlight would have to be the tea party with Mom and my sisters. Quality time with them is thee best. We also browsed around Japantown and added more to our Sanrio collection. We really want to see Japan soon!! 😀

I was a bit stressed out. I hate panicking. My laptop decided to be a pain, but all was okay.

MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 14-20, 2018.

My week was busy, but fun! I attended back to back Giants games, tried out the new cheese tart spot at Westfield, rode the new Muni train again, and caught up with college friends! We got to watch Yuna together.

I’ve been in recovery mode. I’m doing my very best to bounce back. Hanging in there! There’s a lot going on, but I must stay resilient.

It was a long week. The weekend was restless for me.

The next couple of weeks are going to test my patience, mentality, and focus. I just have to keep going! #resilience Family is keeping me afloat. There will be better days. I know it!!!

On another note, I’ve been thinking about love. All my past crushes and unrequited love. I wish them all well! But wouldn’t it be crazy if I randomly bumped into one of them and suddenly we reconnected?! Yeah, right. Haha. Stranger things have happened.

This is also a reminder that I can do anything! Reach for the stars.

I’m tired. Good night and have a great week!


MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MAY 7-13, 2018.

We laid Maria to rest this week. It was one of the saddest moments of my life. So vibrant and so full of light. The one thing I can take away from this life event is reconnecting with relatives. Despite the tears and sadness, there was togetherness and hope.

I’m doing my best to not sweat the small things. I need to start looking at the bigger picture. Maria had a positive mindset! And she always took a chance. I want to start living that way. At times, I’m hesitant or too scared. You’ll never know if you don’t try.

I dedicate this post to Maria once again as well as her family. ❤

I’m gonna switch this one up a bit. Anyway, I’m sleepy, but I can’t sleep. Not until I get this off of my chest.

Am I hard to love? Am I looking for love in all of the wrong places? Am I being proactive about love? Some of the many questions that go on in my anxiety filled mind.

I think I do my best to be my most genuine self and sometimes it still doesn’t feel enough. I feel like putting myself out there will just be disappointing every time. Am I not opening myself up enough? I have my reservations. I’ve been hurt in the past, so my walls are very high. I might’ve mentioned this in a previous entry. I easily am hurt when people disrespect me. At times, I feel like I’m not being taken seriously. On top of that, I’ve encountered people who pose as your wing person only to have them betray you. I understand that everyone isn’t the same, but that one incident stung. I really thought I could trust her. I revisit it a lot and I wish I could’ve done it differently. Instead of telling her that it was okay. Because it wasn’t.

In the words of Kylo Ren, “Let the past die.” Oh believe me, I’m trying.

Now I’m ready to sleep.

Good night.



Family is not an important thing, it’s everything. -Michael J. Fox

There was a lot of reflection, processing, and crying this week. Grief is a part of life and everyone deals with it differently. Being with family during somber times is comforting.

Despite the sadness, I carried on with the rest of my week. We took Beari to the vet for her ultrasound, I finally rode one of the new Muni trains, and volunteered for another Growing Up Asian In America Ceremony at the Asian Art Museum. It’s always an empowering space.
