too late to call you on the phone
too late to tell you i’m alone
i wanna wake you from another lonely night
too late to wonder where you are
too late to hold you in my arms
cuz if you’re lookin for wonderful….
– wonderful (chantal kreviazuk)

Happy 2010!

I’m kind of in the grey zone on how I feel about this new year. On the one hand, I’m excited. I’m…elated…maybe, even. So many things are happening this year. Details later. On the other hand, I can’t help but feel that time is moving a little too quickly. There are things I wish I’d done and hadn’t done. I keep looking back at the past, for some reason I can’t move forward just yet. Hopefully it’s just a phase and the feelings of uncertainty will go away once I really get this year started but, I don’t know, for now, I’ll be on my toes about what’s to come.

SO! For New Year’s Eve we went to Co Phuc’s house in D.C.

Preparing to leave…

This is the only way I’d ever beat him in a fight, I think.

Co Phuc also make two other dishes but I didn’t eat them so…no close ups! : )

And Mother also made Chao Ga (Chicken Congee), which we ate after the countdown, but I was too hungry to care about the picture. Lolz.

Wanna see something cool?
Check out my socks!!

I’m a TIGER!!!

I don’t remember if this was before or after the countdown, it might’ve been both, but Otouto is NOT a night person!

New Year’s was interesting. Lolz. I think I’ll save my thoughts and resolutions for another post.

On the way home….some cool street shots.

The day after New Year’s, Otouto and I went to lunch with Cha Luan.

Waiting…
Photobucket
EWWW OTOUTO!!!

We were planning on going to see a movie but when we got to Tyson’s the place was wayyyy too crowded. We couldn’t get parking and people were driving all weird, like they were all drunk or something! So we just went to eat.

We went to one of the shops in Eden. I had Bun Reu Oc. I thought the broth was really good, but the meat was really bland, no flavor. It was like they didn’t let the meat simmer enough in the broth. O well. There was a lot of Oc so, I liked it overall. haha.

So we cut our outing short and went home. Went to mass as usual. Then after mass Cha Luan took us out again. We were planning again to go to the movies, but the other guys who were coming with us had already seen the movie we were going to see, and Reed, Viet people usually don’t watch movies more than once, so we just went bowling.

They had some weird lighting thing going on. I wanna say…glowinthedark…but it was more than just that…Anyways, it was cool. Look at the balls GLOW!

I bowled a freakin 103 man! I know…technically that sucks…but to me it is awesome. Haha.

So the other team lost both games and had to do push ups.
After game one:

After game two:

Poor boys.

Look at these convicts.

On the way home. The other two left in another car.

Wait…wait….

Just to make a point about the cool lighting….
Photobucket
My socks glowed! You can’t tell in this pic but…it was cool.

The cool Pooh in a Tiger suit Tina got me. IT GLOWS!!!

Yea….if you were there you would agree with me about how awesome it was.

I am not too easily fascinated!

S’all for now. I’ll be back later with New Year Resolutions and a Musings post.

Remember to check out my 365unpaused.tumblr.com blog! I’ve been pretty diligent with it. Granted it’s only been 4 days but…hey…I’m motivated by appreciation OK!? (Appreciation = visitors).

Chya!

  1. Oh freak! THAT POOH BEAR IS ADORABLE!!!!

    and I see that you’re wearing my socks ;D I LIKE I LIKEEEE.

    Haha my New Years was not as eventful as yours. I stayed home watching dramas… didn’t have a chance to eat good food T____T. I should have stalked you to your family friend’s house to get some of those. I hate your blog, once again, for having yummy foods in them.

    I hope you had a good New Years! =] PSHH, woman, youre gonna have such a wonderful year this year!

    • Isn’t it?? I love the Pooh. His expressions are supposed to match my mood. Haha!

      I loveeee the socks you gave me. They’re so comfy!

      Haha, I will try to continue posting delicious food pictures on my blog, just for you Thuy.

  2. Viet people are obviously ridiculous curmudgeons. Watching good movies in theatres like five times is good for the soul!
