I’ve never had Cool Whip before.
My mother in law brought us two huge plates of pumpkin pie.
When we were at the grocery store, I told my husband not to get whipped cream, that we should get cool whip because I’ve never had it before.
I saw a post on tumblr the other day, about this girl’s first time to have cool whip and how it’s like the best thing in dairy world. Naturally, I got curious.
As soon as we got home, I took a teaspoonful, and BAM. It is sooooooo good. I’m afraid I’m going to eat it like ice creAm. And oh speaking of that, my current obsession is Hagen Dazs coffee ice cream. I already ate two pints this week. I was going to get another pint, but my husband was like, why don’t you get the bigger one instead. Who am I to say no to that???
So for tonight… I’m gonna have some coffee ice cream with cool whip!
Will someone please make me coffee, bacon and eggs?
Or fried spam and rice?
And here is my mother’s orchid patch. She loves gardening, and we always have nice plants.
She planted so many stuff in our yard. We have papayas, sour fruits, jackfruit, flowers and shrubs. Our yard looks like a forest.
Every time I see a pretty orchid or flowers, I take a picture and send it to my brother so he could show mama.
I just got done skyping with them. I was telling them that I made sour soup with pork. Mama told me she made eggplant adobo, grilled fish, and pork soup. The house sounded so alive, with everybody home. I wanted to be with them.
Also, I’m having a love affair with orchids. It takes every ounce of will power whenever I go to the grocery store and walk past this section. Sometimes, I get my husband to buy me these babies. The very first orchid he bought me died. I’m slowly learning how to keep them alive.
Sigh. They are so expensive here. My mother has an orchid collection. I showed her my four plants, and she was like, that’s it? She had my brother send a picture of her orchid garden. I will post a pic after this.
Happy Saturday!!! I’m in bed, my husband is watching college football. During half time, he went to the store to get soda and my Hagen Dazs coffee ice cream. It’s my latest addiction.
Our aunt also came over and she brought lunch. We had fried chicken and the most delicious red beans and rice. I am so full!!!
I’m going to laze this day away. I’m not even gonna think about laundry and chores…

-a pint of Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream
-a nice Japanese dinner
-great camaraderie at the office
-funny conversations with my husband.
Im so happy it’s Friday!!! I’m going to sleep all day tomorrow!!!
We got a lot of rain today. Flooding everywhere.
It’s a nice change, but I hope no one got hurt or stranded!
We went to a Vietnamese restaurant and had seriously good soup. And I had a big plate of “broken rice” and pork chop. We decided to go to our favorite oriental store after our meal, and spent our money on stuff we don’t need. Like the ovaltine and mang tomas sauce. And plum wine. And soy milk. And shrimp paste.
For the finale, we grabbed boba tea! Yummy!!!
A beautiful Sunday.
I woke up feeling nostalgic. I dreamed about my grandma, and it was weird. In my dream, she was asleep on a bed and I tried to touch her but she rolled away from me.
I message my cousin about it and he said that grandma’s death anniversary is on the 20th. Maybe it’s her way of reminding me. But I sure miss that lady. The most gentle soul I have ever known. I have never heard her raise her voice or cuss. She was hardworking and had long black hair. She only had a few grey hair, and i think it’s a genetic anomaly. Neither of my aunts or uncles have gray hair. My mom is 57 and she doesn’t have a single strand of gray hair.
My husband and I went to Golden Corral for their breakfast buffet. My father in law met us there. I saw him walking using a walker, and he looks so old. The first time I met him was almost two years ago, and since his heart attack, he had grayed so much.
His walker reminds me how things could change so quickly.
I’m blessed that I have this moment with him. I will treasure it everyday.
And I miss grandma so much, and my family.
Brunch was Hawaiian pulled pork.
I don’t even have to tell him what I wanted. He knows. It amazes me how he invades my mind.
I wish I’m not too tired after work. Then I can make dinners and wash the dishes. Instead of feeding my husband restaurant food almost everyday.
Or too lazy in the mornings, then I can spend time applying make up perfectly. Most of the times, I just put on some foundation and I’m all set. I’m too lazy to do my eyes and all that stuff.
I wish I’m 30 lbs lighter. Then I can actually tie my shoe laces without feeling choked. Durn. I need to watch my diet and start getting on the bowflex again.
I wish I know how to sew. I have two pairs of pants that needed to be hemmed. The zipper is breaking apart. I did it once, and after a week it got broken again. It looked like my four year old nephew did the work. Sigh.
But oh friday! I am so happy. I bought a bag of Cheetos and plan on watching chick flicks all night long. Woo hoo!!!
Work was brutal today. I’m glad this day is over.
My brain is fried. And to top it off, I thought it was Friday today. LOL.
Goofing around, and my husband took this picture. This is somewhere in Flagstaff.
I like this picture because it’s a happy memory. We had a nice breakfast that day and I was teasing him about his snoring. I had corned beef hash and he had waffles.
We got into the truck, and had a blast listening to country music and enjoying the scenery. We stopped and took pictures. It was a fine day, the kind that I wish would never end…
