Back by popular demand.  I will try to post more pix on this blog.  This week, I will be posting NYC related pix.  These are some pix I took  couple of months back when Sung Hee unnie was visiting NYC with her crew.

Heard about this story about Jaycee Dugard Saturday morning in the comforts of bed.  As I was listening to the story being told in front of me, I couldn’t stop wondering what life was like for Jaycee and her 2 kids for the past 18 years.  For 18 years, she had missed out in so much of the real world and so much of life.  Not only that, she was living in conditions that most of us would be mortified by.

Then it made me question where God was in all this.  In the midst of this tragedy.  In the midst of someone’s life.  In the midst of such injustice.  He knows all, sees all, and is everywhere all the time.  So how can He let this happen?  How can he allow this to happen to someone? 

I just don’t have an answer.  I just don’t know.  Cause my little mind with my little understanding of who God is, I just can’t rationalize or grasp His ways in such situation.  I know that’s not good enough answer for most people and actually that’s not good enough answer for me either.  But I can’t try to understand God in these kind of situation when I am struggling with His place in my own life.

Many times, I am so self-absorbed in my little world with my worries and my life that I forget how blessed I really am.  Why do I refuse to see that most of the time?  So focused on all the things that He’s not doing in my life and so focused on things that I don’t have in my life, I can’t see the incredible things that He is doing and has given in my life.

I saw Israel Houghton and New Breed perform for the 3rd time this year last week.  I could honestly say that until this January, I’ve never heard of him or his group before.  But I was fortunate enough to see them because they opened for Chris Tomlin’s concerts in Newark and in LA (yes I went to both….).  And each time, I was blown away with their passion and their unbelievable charisma to lead and captivate a crowd.  Last week was no different.

They sang this song that I’ve never heard of before.  For one reason or another, it really stirred something inside me.

Jen S forwarded me this article after our conversation on Sunday.  I was telling my dear Jen that I told another friend that she should marry for money, not love.  Is it because I regret marrying for love instead of money? NOOOO of course not.  But I see now how much easier relationships can be if you had money.  I”m sure not all relationships are like that, but I can’t help but to ponder about these things, when I look at some women who married “up”.  Did they marry for love or did they marry for money?  And why do their lives seem so much easier than mine?  Is it wrong for me to question these things?  Probably….

In this article by the lady named Lori Gottlieb called “Marry Him”, gives you a profound and dauntingly honest view on marriage and relationships for the single ladies.   She tells you to settle because that’s better than being alone and being miserable.  She actually gives pretty decent support for her theory and rationale behind why she feels this way.  I have to say after reading this lengthy article, I think I totally agree with her on this one.   Would Rachel have been more satisfied in life with Barry instead of her on-again/off-again Ross?  Would Carrie have been more stable with Aiden than Mr. Big, the man who abandoned her countless times?  These are really awesome questions!

I guess that may be contradictory to my religious belief.  But I don’t think God wants us to sit around and wait for Mr. Perfect and put your life on a complete “hold” status or be in and out of dysfunctional relationships either…..

IGN Video: How I Met Your Mother TV Clip – Barney On The Price Is Right

So I’ve been obsessing about my new favorite show in the world for the past 2 weeks.  Started off so innocently with Jen S offering to let me borrow the first season of “How I Met Your Mother.”    And honestly John and I really haven’t been able to watch anything else since we started watching these DVDs….

Then yesterday, as my husband and I are going thru the 2nd season, my favorite show of all time collided with my new favorite show.  That’s right folks, PRICE IS RIGHT and HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER!!!!!

Barney, aka a friend I wish I had in my life, has also become one of my favorite TV characters of all time as well.  And I hear myself going around saying things like, “Give me Five!”, “Lengen…. wait for it…. dary!”, and “Have you met Ted?”…. I wish almost everyday that I had a friend like BARNEY STINSON!

Anywho, in this particular episode, you find out that when Barney was little, his dear mother had told him that Bob Barker was his biological father.  So he is on this quest to get on Price is Right.  Here’s a small clip from the episode.  I wish I could share the entire episode cause it’s soooooo freaking AWESOME!

Okay, I was OBBBBSSSESSSSED with this show called JEM growing up.  Girl rock group, enemies called Misfits, cartoon music videos, big hair, and Holograms!  Seriously it’s pretty outrageous…..

My buddy/Kid sister commerical….. ahhh… childhoodddddd in the 80’s…. It made me wonder why they don’t have good jingles anymore.

Saw this on the news the other morning.  Still trying to figure out if it’s real or not. 

i’ll be leaving work a little early tonight .. what to do ………

Saw this article on TIME titled, “Why Exercise Won’t Make You Thin“.  And it made me really curious since John and I were thinking about starting a P90X this week.  And trust me, the biggest reason why we are doing this is because we want to be thin.  Should I even bother at this point?

Found this super-duper cute shirt on Etsy.  I would totally wear it if my boobs were smaller.  I don’t know why but I think with such huge holes, my boob size would matter…..  Regardless, really cute shirt for the summer.

A friend sent me this video.  It really struck a core with me this week.  What Francis Chan had to say was so thought-provoking that I am actually going to buy his book called Crazy Love and read it. 

alex wears this james perse black tshirt that i LOVE. it’s just a plain black t-shirt but i love the material and i don’t know. i just like when he wears it. it looks good. anyway, i was perusing the site and what do i find?

oohhh wee. the james perse limited edition cruiser. how bad ass does that bike look. something about the matte black is so hot. the black on black on black on black is awesome. they offer it in other colors like white and red and etc. but why bother?????? but too bad, it’s sold out. =(

check it out here.

…dry and cool in Tretorn during the rainy season.

so i THINK there’s a new korean restaurant in cliffside park. i’m not sure. i just drove by it. i swear it looked like korean words. but i don’t know. they were so tiny. and i’m blind. and i tend to make stuff up. so considering all factors, it could be a total lie. anyway, it’s next to the liquor store by A&P. next to .. art florist. i’ll spec it out.

maybe it’s a hidden gem…

or a big bust.

OH. i checked out dayi’nin yeri restaurant in cliffside park. i’ll write about that later. pretty damn delicious.

Okay so this is my THIRD blog entry regarding these hideous things.  I initially blogged about how ridiculous it was, then I blogged about how it invaded one of my favorite TV shows.  And here I am blogging about this aweful things one more time.

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible for these things to get any worse, I sat thru a commercial over this weekend that was promoting their new item.  Snuggies in “animal print” y’all.  That’s right!  I really wanted to find the commerical but I can’t find it online yet.  One of the funniest line in the commercial is “you asked us to make Snuggies more fashion… well here’s our solution”… The design is exactly the same, but now you could wear the leopard print Snuggies.  Did they really think that, that’s what people were demanding for?  Seriously, WTF….
