Read this article on NPR News about a baby tiger being drugged and stuffed in a bag to be smuggled in.   It never ceases to surprise me the crazy things that people will do….

Jen S recently told me that one of our favorite KDrama “Boys before Flowers was on Hulu.  But recently I discovered that Hulu and bunch of other Korean dramas and movies.  I love when my western world collide with my motherland!  Thank you HULU!

I watched the movie Closer with great expectations.  Natalie Portman & Clive Owen(BMW films – Top 5 movie picks) in a same movie was enough for me to have these high hopes for this movie.  The movie was “eh” at best but I was able to walk away with music of Damien Rice, which I think just may be one of the greatest things in the world.  I love his music and adore his poetic and penetrating lyrics.   I have spent many hours walking and thinking listening to his songs in many different cities.  And I’m sure my head will once again be filled with his voice/music this autumn in NYC.

It’s true I love alot of things and Restoration Hardware is up there with DWR, West Elm, C2B and Muji.   I actually applied for a part time position at RH retail store and got rejected.  I’m sure my salary and title as “Director of Finance” as current position probably didn’t help the matter.

My newest purchase from Gilt today.  At this rate, I WILL need to get a job.  And apparently I LOVE shoes more than Claudia.  Although I didn’t steal them from her, and we are on the oppt coasts, we will be wearing the same shoes on some days.   I can’t wait to wear them.  Perfect for NYC Fall!

@ an Esty store “Sparkles Kitchen”  too cute

Right now, my small 1 bedroom apartment is overflowing with boxes, bags, paper, art supplies, and crates.  It’s getting so out of control that I am getting annoyed.  But with 5 events on my plate in next 45 days, I have no choice but to deal with the crazy/chaotic mess that I am creating in my living space.

seriously, how cute are these rings?

This shoot was from couple of years back.  But I still love it whenever I see it.

Covert Affairs is another show on USA that John and I try to watch on regular basis.  Piper Perabo plays a mildly jaded and intense character named agent Annie Walker.  I’ve always liked Piper since Coyote Ugly.  However there are moments when I get super annoyed watching this show.

Katherine sent me an one liner email that read, “photo contest AND you can try the new Dominos Pizza” with the link for “Show Us Your Pizza” contest.

I just heard on Today’s show that Suri Cruise has wardrobe that’s estimated at 3.6 million dollars.  What in the world???  And Katie Homes admitted that Suri chose her clothes since she was 1.5 years old.  Do they even talk at that age?  I don’t know, isn’t this just too much?  I mean she’s cute and all but is this just ridiculous.

Mr. Jonathan Adler has my dream job.  One of many dream jobs on my list.  Saw this “love & hate” jars and wondered how much I would LOVE to create things like this for living.  How satisfying and gratifying would my life be to be able to create things with my hands?  And YES, he has some freaking gorgeous things on his site.  Hate him!

Kana Surfboards – P40 Epoxy Board (Org $650… Now $449) – something I will probably never need but thought it was really cool and I do like the design and the color combo.

A friend posted this on his FB page and of course I couldn’t resist.  Yes, it’s an actual cat fashion show.  The Gothamist had a good coverage of the event.  I showed it to John and he said, “when cats revolution come, these people are gonna be the first ones to be guillotined.”

Late last nite, while going thru the DVR, came across this little girl on America’s got talent.  She’s only 10 years old and her name is Jackie Evancho.  After watching her sing, I wondered how the other contestants on the show felt about her.  I mean clearly she was sooo incredibly awesome and better than other contestants.

Mark + James – Square Sequin Scoop Back shift dress (Org $495… Now $199) – looking for a dress to wear for a tea party.  This might’ve been over the top but I think I would have done it anyway.

Yesterday during service at church, something unexpected happened.  God spoke to me again thru the song “How He Loves” .   He was able to use this one song to bring me, so far, 4 different message.  And this is the 3rd blog entry relating to this one song by John Mark McMillan.

Bit out of my price range but just looking at this Chloe dress makes me feel sophisticated and classy.  Really adore this dress.

Give me the oppty to wear this Kate Spade shoes.  I will wear it!

Elite Leather – Whitby Sofa  (Org $3720… Now $1375) – Gorgeous sofa.  If it wasn’t for our cats, I would LOVE this gorgeous sofa t be sitting in our living room.  It will go very well with the dark brown book cases that I have.

I could literally spend HOURS on TED.   Lanigan forwarded this to me and it is probably one of many many many reasons why I LOVE TED!

Not only because I shoot with Canon but because I like all things creative and clever, I really LOVE these Canon lens mugs.

So if you haven’t heard and if you are not already following, Kanye West joined Twitter last week.   Read this on Huffington Post the other day.  It’s pretty hilarious.

I was really excited to hear that Louis Ck was having his own TV show called “Louie.”  I thought he was hilarious ever since I saw this youtube clip of him on Conan.

I saw Kick Ass in Seattle while visiting my bff Gian at a theater where they served alcohol.  I think I would’ve enjoyed this movie even without the alcohol.  Yes, there was incredible amount of violence, and yes there was incredible amount of profanity, and yes, most of it was from actors who were just kids .  But it was one of the most entertaining movies that I’ve seen in a really long time.  Mindless, good action, good plot,  and good dialogue.  It was  satisfying in so many ways.  John and I watched it recently and I was glad I made the time to watch it again.

Villa in Anadalucia by McLean Quinlan Architects

Saw this on Diggy’s blog (<- i am still not convinced that he’s writing this blog on his own).    I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE a house like this for me and John.  I mean who wouldn’t right?

Serious Eats is one of my favorite sites to visit.  It keeps me updated in all the places that I would LOVE to check out and also I get to stare at all these fantastic food pix.  WARNING: Don’t go to this site if you are hungry.  You’ve been warned.

Another cool find on Brooke Fraser’s blog : Solidarités International: Water talks

Recently saw this on Brooke Fraser’s blog and thought it was just amazing.

No matter how many times I see it, it always surprises me when I see articles/coverage about Korean food in a mainstream/reputable media source.  When I saw this article about Korean style tacos all over US in the  New York Times, I have to be honest, it made me feel proud to be a Korean.

I think God is very wise for many different reasons.

I started to see the promotional commercial for “The Apprentice” this past week and I am fully understanding the power of empathy while watching these commercials.   As I am watching these folks get emotional about losing jobs and not having income coming in, I can’t help but to relate and completely connecting with these contestants.

I recently started to apply for positions and started my job searching process.  I don’t enjoy this process at all.  And while going thru the emotional roller coaster, a friend and I had a conversation about how going on interviews are like going on blind dates.  There’s a deep truth in this topic….

so i know this song is overplayed … been overplayed for some time now. what song am i talking about? home by edward sharpe and the magnetic zeros. but a friend of mine just kind of mentioned it in an email chain and now i can’t stop listening to it … again.

such a good song. no, a great song. reminds me of the bf. megg farrell’s whiskey social covering home … (shitty iphone quality .. it’s all i had)
