My First Sewing Kit

This is the first sewing kit (from Michael’s).

It looks pathetic. I spent less than $6.00 in total.

I spent 15 minutes fixing some stuff. I figured, If common house-wives can do this, then I should be able to do this.

I quickly learned some tricks on my own.

I am afraid I will get too excited and end up buying a sewing machine.

I need a pincushion, a better needle case, a pair of small scissors, a better sewing case, etc…

Single man's first Sewing Kit

Today, after work, I did 6 loads of wash and put together my first sewing kit. It’s getting too late. I better fix a quick dinner before start ironing a mountain of shirts and pants.

I am so tired…

Love my new sewing kit. 

Salute to Single Men in the World

Here’s for all the (poor) single men in the world

I never go out on Saturday night. (any night of the week). I have things to do. I am busy.

It was a Saturday night 10pm when I got ready to burn midnight oil.

I took a shower and went out for quick shopping. I went to Ralphs, Del Taco, and a donut shop. I wanted some donuts to go with my coffee.

I brewed 100% Kona coffee at 11 pm. I hope to stay awake all night and get things done. I have a lot of items on my to-do list. I’ll be working all day tomorrow as well. I work more during the weekends than I do on weekdays. The weekend is the time I focus on my business (and a secret project).

Here’s my salute to all the single men in the world.
Nobody gives you credit for what you do.  But your days will come (I hope)…

Mental Note: Clean up the coffee area

It’s now past 8:00 AM Sunday morning. I think I’m going to rest now.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

* 19th package of the year

I wore green today. This was unusual because I never wear green for St. Patrick’s Day. I don’t know… I felt like wearing green today. As I get older, I enjoy doing stupid things like this. It’s fun.

Look, I even drank a cup of green tea (Jasmine). I often use 2 bags in a cup for an extra kick. 

Green Sleave, Green Tea

That Homer Simpson mug was $25.00 at Linens’n Things. Then, a few months later, I went back to the same Linens’n Things and found it in the clearance bin for $5.00.

Swiss Army Knife

My mini Swiss Army Knife came. It’s got a tiny LED flashlight. This can come in handy at my wedding photography gigs.

My coworker has the same knife. He often helps me to open my packages with his knife. I thought it was cool. Now I have one, too.

Lunch – Salad & Anchovy Pizza

When I ordered an Anchovy Pizza, the cashier said, “You are the first person ordering anchovy in 2 months.” So, I told her “Make that a double anchovy”. My coworker also ordered anchovy pizza.

“How do I explain the beauty of anchovy? How do I make them understand?” I asked my co-worker. “I don’t know, dude… start a website,” he answered.

We talked about anchovy pizzas while we were eating ’em. 
I told him how much I enjoy the chalky, meaty texture of anchovy. 
My coworker told me about the best anchovy pizza he ever had.


For lunch, we only get one trip to the salad bar with this bowl. So, naturally, we pile ’em up high. 

I quickly learned that Sprouts goes on top. That bowl of salad could have gone a lot higher, but I didn’t want to embarrass my coworker.

Unscented Please

How come so many deodorants, aftershaves, and lotions have a stupid smell to them? Why is it so difficult to find a decent unscented aftershave?

I don’t like the smell of every single aftershave in the market. I don’t care if they are from Channel or Old Spice. They are all disgusting. I hate ’em.

I don’t want to smell like a grandfather. I don’t want to smell like a college kid who enjoys clubbing a lot.

They call it “Cool Breeze”, “Sports Scent”, and whatever… that doesn’t make sense. Why advertise your armpit smell? Everyone knows that smell is coming from the pits of your arms. That’s disgusting.

This goes the same with feminine care products. If I was a woman, I would hate my Tampons to smell, period (no pun intended). I don’t want anyone to associate the fragrance with my vagina. If I was a woman, I would like my tampons and pads to eliminate any kind of smell instead of emitting a special scent for my vagina.

When it comes to personal care products, “No Smell” is the way to go. Am I the only person thinking this way?

Why is it SOOO hard to find unscented products?

Gave Tweety Birds to My Neighbor

There is an old lady in my neighborhood. She’s 84 years old. She used to carry a big fuzzy Tweety Bird key chain.

I say “Hi” whenever I see her.  
Her tweety bird was getting dirty.

Then, one day, she stopped carrying her Tweety Bird. She lost the bird; she said.

So I went online and ordered two Tweety Key-chains. 

Fuzzy Tweety Bird Keychain


After a few weeks, I saw the old lady walking into her house.

I grabbed my Tweeties from the back seat of my car and ran after her.

I had to be very careful not to scare her. She might think I was a criminal or something, so..

I said “hi” and gave her the tweety key-chain. 

She was very happy. She gave me a big hug. She said “Thank you, thank you… how sweet.. ” She was almost crying.

Good time.

BBQ Day this Weekend

I am getting ready for a BBQ day tomorrow (Saturday). I will eat alone, but it’s OK. I keep myself busy and entertained.

I need to work on my web projects.

I plan to take a nap, practice guitar, watch The Lakers, drink coffee, keep working… I should visit my parents too… hm. I am so busy.

Anyway, I have chicken and steak ready for tomorrow. Chicken is from July 2008 shopping, steak is from the Glorious Thanksgiving Steak Sale.

I need to pick out some movies for this weekend.
