oh ho! I am seekritly posting from work now that the ban on lj here has been surprisingly lifted! :D


Hi everyone! *waves* It's been a while since I was on here. Everything is going well and things have been crazy hectic. Well...more hectic than usual!

I'm officially 28 weeks today! Whoooooohoooo! And we're having a lovely baby girl. Hubmeister and I are super excited to meet her and we're just sort of enjoying experiencing this pregnancy together. Although he's a bit tired of constantly rubbing Vitamin E oil on my belly or stopping me from scratching myself raw, he's been taking the time to talk to her and play 80s hi-nrg music. Which she loves and WILL dance to. I've got the internal bruises to show it!

What else have I been up to? Oh, we moved into the Master Bedroom in our house (like, this past weekend!) so I've been spending hours cleaning and packing when I'm not at work or in SF. Pretty excited to start decorating and creating a positive space for us and our baby girl.

I'm also really excited for the holidays. I'm going to put up a post for holiday cards later this week since I'm definitely getting a head start and I found all my holiday cards. I'm trying harder to be better organized at things. So far, so good!


So how are you doing?
jemz: (w-inds. -  joy)
♥ It's almost Valentine's Day and I just wanted to let you, my wonderful flist, know that I ♥ you!

♥ BF is sick again. This time with a head cold. I'm trying really hard not to catch it while nursing him back to health. What is it with guys being the biggest baby when sick?!

♥ Snow. I ain't got none. Sorry, east coasters. You stole all the snow from Vancouver.

♥ Speaking of Vancouver, I AM SO EXCITED FOR THE WINTER OLYMPICS. MY FAVORITE TIME. Figure Skating, HALF PIPE, Speed Skating. YES.

♥ Homemade baked tortilla chips with guacamole. OM NOM NOM NOM.

♥ Lunar New Year is the same day as Valentine's Day. So this weekend, I spent all day Saturday with BF and his mommy. In Chinatown. Doing what BF & I jokingly call "Chinese Wife Training" aka follow his mom all around Chinatown and learn how to shop like an old Chinese lady.

♥ I'm hopeless addicted to Gardening Mama on the DS. Send help. Or some giant strawberries.

♥ Stay tuned for an announcement on Valentine's Day for FanimeCon's MusicFest! I'm super excited. :D

Update!

You know what?

Making candy is hard work and a lot of fun. And really messy.

I made Chocolate Coconut Balls, Oreo truffles, and Chocolate Cookie Dough and all my guinea pigs (THANKS, GUINEA PIGS!!! :D :D :D :D ) like them a lot.

I think I just found my favorite thing to give away at Christmas at the office. ;-)

Also....chocolate chips are my downfall in covering the candies. :/
jemz: (DBSK - so tired!)
Oh hey, look who is online again!? Yup. That's right. ME!!! *happy dance*

Which isn't to say that I haven't exactly been without internet connection since I last posted in the warm lobby of the Hilton Seattle where I was enjoying Sakura-Con with some fantastic friends and making new ones. I've had internet......on my blackberry (aka Shige-Dex). I just haven't had time to make a post!

So what's new/happening/exciting in my life in the past two weeks?

I'm so glad you asked! )

So. How are you doing this fine spring? :D Less hectic than me, I hope. One day soon I will actually comment on your posts! Promise!
jemz: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)

Konbachiwa, minna-san!!

I hope everyone has been eating well so far this year! I've been taking care of what I am eating lately. So many delicious things to eat!!

Tonight, my friends and I surprised our friend during the girls' movie night. It was fun and very sneaky. hehehehe She was super surprised!! We got her a delicious cake and balloons. All of us were calm and sly about the surprise, talking normally and excited about the movie. Then BAM!!

Birthday cake with lots of birthday !!

BIG SURPRISE!! :D

It was good to celebrate birthdays together. Even better to hang out with good friends.

Such a good night. hehehehe
jemz: (DBSK - Happy Jae!)
I had something to say. Like how today is a new chapter in our history. That hope is springing from everyone during these really dark times and that we all need to hold together and stay strong to our ideals. That things will get better. Believe!

Or like how today was a ton of fun with Peyton & Liz & Daichi with dinner and karaoke. How it was fun to sing DBSK, JE, and w-inds. songs at the awesome Japanese karaoke. And that plans were made to drag MousaPi, Clare, Koyamamamama, & Shabz for a session or two whenever they come to see me. catface

But I'm sort of wrapped up in staring at Jaejoong. Who's so incredibly gorgeous in this picture.



I think I should start working on a Jaejoong pimp post as soon as this week's social festivities are over. *_________* Because everyone needs to love Jaejoong as much as I do.
jemz: (HYD - apples)
How did this year pass by so fast?

I'm still a bit boggled by how quickly time passed me by and that it probably all meant that I was too darn busy to notice! I was telling a few friends that I felt that I didn't accomplish very much this year. So I decided to do a Year in Review and to remind myself that I did accomplish a lot!

I combined it with that meme (Take the first sentence (or two) from the first post of each month of 2008. That's your year in review.)

So what did I do? )

I...think I need more sleep. XD
jemz: (Holiday - bowl of ornaments)
It's been an awesome weekend, my friends! I had NO work at all besides a few phone calls but I SLEPT IN. uwaa, it was a wonderful feeling!

Today, I uploaded new music to Teppei (iPod), went shopping with some of my favorite ladies ([livejournal.com profile] damiri and [livejournal.com profile] aelfsciene), bought some great stuff on sale, had frozen yogurt and Beard Papa's creampuff for my wild card day (LORDIE, IT WAS DELICIOUS), spent some time with family and eating fantastic food, and am now winding down after trying to catalog my concert pamphlets/photobooks/dvds while packing for Anime LA.

Seems busy but really, it's not! I caught up with people who matter lots to me and destressed!

Soon, I'll post up my new resolutions for 2009 and maybe list things I've done in 2008 so I don't feel like a loser workaholic loser and that I've not accomplished a lot.

But yay for a free weekend of just doing things for me!!!
jemz: (Holiday - bowl of ornaments)
I'm so tired!!!

But project of d00m is DONE. I spent about 70 hours in 6 days on it and another 20 hours this week. It is done and I can go back and finish everything I was supposed to finish last week before the project was dropped onto my lap.

It feels weird to leave work at 5pm now.

But I am looking forward to sleeping for more than 4 hours at a time.

Also, okonomiyaki with [livejournal.com profile] nihongofrancais and [livejournal.com profile] liangzhu in San Francisco was amazing and I loved every minute of our dinner together. Wish it was longer! Next time!
jemz: (DBSK - Jae loves wine)
Konbanwa, minna-san!

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the United States!! Did you eat well!?

I had lots of food onigiricakericebreadcup So much that I was really full!! sweat

Today is not just about food, ne? It's about giving thanks to what we hold important in our lives. I'm thankful for my family and friends. thumbsup My life is made richer because of them and YOU. I'm thankful for food. Because it's so delicious and I'm very happy when I'm eating with friends and family. These are things that give me strength to work long hours (even tonight! at 1:30AM! DD:) and do the things I need to accomplish.

I'm thankful most of all to being alive. Because I can keep growing, keep experiencing new things and loving hearts who I want to love lovely , to achieve things that I've always been interested in achieving, and being loved in return. heart1

And in being thankful on this day, I remember and grieve for those whose innocent lives were taken away so cruelly in the world. I thank that their presence made someone happy for a period of time. I thank them for their time, enriching others no matter how brief their earthly stay.

Today, I am thankful for everything. Tomorrow, I will keep trying to make a difference in the world. lightbulb Minna, I hope you will try along with me.
jemz: (NewS - :O)
Last night, I

~ had a great dinner with fantastic friends
~ teased [livejournal.com profile] karberry's husband. He has a new nickname of "NICKLE KITTY"
~ was sad that Mike and [livejournal.com profile] karberry didn't feel well enough to go out to the Castro.
~ made a face at my phone's dying battery
~ danced my tush off
~ got hit by an ugly man who was nowhere near as good looking with a hook nose as Alan Rickman. And really, a velvet jacket in a club full of hot, gyrating bodies? -_-
~ got super tipsy! 2 double shots of Patron, some horribly strong Cap'n Morgan and Coke, half of something else, a blueberry kamikaze shot with an adorable and flirty bar boy (taken without hands! What? They were in test tubes!)
~ watched some boys shake their tush in jockstraps, touching themselves in many, many different ways.
~ was told that my boobs were asymmetrical. ARE THEY REALLY?!!??! :O
~ umm...forgot my dead cell phone in Kachang's car. Oops. ^_^;;

Now I'm late for something but hey, I just wanted to share how utterly FAIL I am.

Ta ta, lovelies! Back to San Francisco to shop and then party at Asia SF.
jemz: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)
Konbachiwa, minna-san!

Today, I had to work very early! I was really sleepy when I arrived. sleepy But as the day went on, I looked forward to eating delicious breakfast food for lunch! It tastes pretty good. face26

But I went to the supermarket afterwards and bought myself some food for tomorrow and the weekend. I don't want to eat too much breakfast food for lunch that I forget what lunch tastes like! kidding

Tomorrow, I will eat delicious food while working really early. yummyface I hope I don't eat it all at once, ne?


Minna-san, what sort of delicious food are you eating tomorrow?
jemz: (Jin - girly man of sex!)
Konbanwa, minna-san!!

It's been a very tiring week at work with 98Q40585 things going on and major emergencies. But! :D I learned many new things despite being working many long hours. clock All this staring at my computer computer and all the coding glasses made my head spin for a bit. *O*

cat Boss lady took me out for dinner onigiribreadhamburger tonight and I had delicious sake! sake Mmm. I want another glass, y0.

After dinner, we went back to check on some more coding. Yosh! I was really refreshed after a good meal and some time away from the office!

Today was a hard day at work but I had some breakthroughs and solved some very difficult issues!! punch2 I feel that despite the hard work, I'm learning a lot and improving myself. yummyface It's satisfying to know I'm accomplishing a lot even though I don't realize it. Sometimes, I make a list document1 to remind myself. eyes And then cross each one off. kidding

I look back and think that I like myself more now than I did two weeks ago.punch2 So I want to keep striving to be better. arrowup

sparkles Minna-san, let's do our best and work hard, okay!? lightbulb
jemz: (Yamapi - MMMM. FOOOD!)
So I've been uploading pictures from Japan and will take it one day at a time, yah? I think I've done some commentary on our first few days before I became tired of writing as we were traveling in high humidity (and really, for a girl who's been living in the dry, dry heat of California, humidity ain't your friend) and we were super spazzy for a lot of the nights.

So without further ado (and I should really try to sleep early and acclimate better), here are pictures of the first day! (sorry, I was too tired lazy to resize the pictures!)

Day 1 - The arrival & Akihabara )

Day 2 - Tsukiji Fish Market, Shin Yokohama, & the Shin Yokohama Ramen Museum )
jemz: (Kanjani8 - Eito circle)
Today, everyone, was a mostly good and somewhat bad. -_-

Work had a huge a emergency situation that was resolved but it took a lot of time to clean it up. downarrow My tension was raised a bit. arrowup But I was waiting to be able to work, I took some time to relax and read some interesting articles. I want to improve my mind! lightbulb

Then I was super busy in the afternoon. punch2 Catching up on things. arrowup The tension was still raised! Yabai! ._.;;

But dinner was delicious as always with my lovely cousins and nieces. Time spent with them is something I cherish!! hearts My energy is renewed when I am with them! I am completely refreshed. sparkles Plus, it amused me to know that my eldest cousin loves Kame and her daughter loves Jaejoong. I feel very at home since jemz-mama and I discuss music and dramas all the time. tv wink

Just need a good night's rest and I will be completely energized! Soon, I will be able to tackle everything I need to do before flying to Japan on Thursday!

AH! I FORGOT! Must do something right away!

But I am glad I remembered what I forgot to do earlier. punch2 I will work hard until my vacation!




P.S. Who's up for a Tokyo meetup on July 19th for lunch? Ilana, Sarah, Alissa, Ciara, Korea, Rachel, Laura, and Teej? Come join MousaPi, Shabz, and I for lunch! :D
jemz: (Jin - Apricate)
Konnichiwa!


It's refreshing to be woken up by the sound of nature, ne!? Birds chirping, crisp air, sun in your face...

Well...it was the sun in my face that woke me up. sun Bright and blinding and warm!

But today is the beginning of a new day and I am slowly working on other things! Getting better at saying "No!" to doing more work ^_^;; before I can finish the work I have.

Also! There is this feeling of "Ah, Soon I will be Tokyo/Kyoto and enjoy the delicious food!" ricesake I am looking forward to it!! :D

This summer will be enjoyed so much!! Full of activities and seeing loved ones.

I must face each day properly with a bright smile hehehehe. Oh Sun God, please shine brightly as I eat a lot of watermelon and ice cream!



P.S. T H E N ↔ N O W
I'd love to to know what you think?
jemz: (Jin - Apricate)
Today is full of laziness and leisure.

I slept in until 10am (totally luxurious!) and had a leisurely late lunch!

It's been a wonderful day so far and I have a jug of sun tea brewing outside to sip and enjoy in an hour or so.

Today has been made even sweeter after I found out I have tickets to see KAT-TUN in Osaka and w-inds. in Yokohama! :D SO EXCITED, EVERYONE!!! I flailed super hard at mousaPi and shabz. Now to find tickets for Kanjani8 in Fukui. *crosses fingers!*

BUT I AM REALLY EXCITED TO SEE W-INDS. ON THEIR OPENING CONCERT OF THE TOUR. YES. AND JIN'S HIPS. :D I WILL SEE THEM IN ACTION IN PERSON!!!!

Now I've got America's Best Dance Crew on tv and about to work on [livejournal.com profile] jesummary and a few other things.

Best lazy day ever.
