.My JOURNAL 90 : DOUBLE VDAY AND BDAY



Bonjour to the month of L.O.V.E and should I say my BIRTHDAY month as well.

For those blogger who followed me for a really long time, you guys already probably know that my birthday month is February. February means two important life event; Valentines Day, and My Birthday Day. Which I call it sometimes the double VtoBday. Personally I don't like celebrating V-day (you can read it here why ) but since my bf is big on gesture of gift giving and showing affection on vday, I might as well celebrate it with him and not ruin it for him. Then after a week, it was my B-day that we celebrated. I have acknowledge the fact that I'm a year older again and I'm reaching that full adulthood life now. I'm no longer consider a young girl. Wahhhhhhhhh

Anyway....

Back to happy thoughts,


So today ill share with you guys what did I do on my vday and bday.



On Feb 14, My bf and I went to the new Applebee's resturant at Fishermans Wharf. We been wanting to Applebee's for a really long time with some of our friends, but we just decided to try to first (just the two of us) then if it's good food we will bring our bear family with us the next time. 

But before we got there, my bf surprised me with a valentines day mini cake, single rose (which I requested), Balloons, and a huge valentines day card. I told you guys he likes to be super grant when it comes to V-day's gift giving. 



When we got there, the place was pack and we waited for almost I think 10 mins to be seated. I really like the fact that we seated near the bar which we can watch on the big screen TV and we got the tall booth chairs. Before our food arrived at our table, I ordered the Berry Sangria and he got the Miller lite for some drinks while waiting.


 We got the Appetizer Sampler, Lemon Shrimp Fettuccine, French Onion Soup, and Marsala Mushroom Sirloin. I really love the Spinach & Artichoke Dip for the chips and my Lemon Shrimp Fettuccine was really fresh and delicious.


After dinner, Jay and I decided to go to our newly single female friends to share some Valentines day gifts. We gave them flowers, balloons, and cupcakes.




Ultimately, we ended our night with a lot of camera whoring and just plain craziness.  


Then the following week, it was my birthday. My birthday is nothing too fancy at all this year, it more like a lay back birthday celebration. So we went to our favorite Pizzeria, ate some Half Hawaiian and Half Bad Boy Pizza, Sweet Potatoes, Meat Calzone, Mix Strawberry and Mango Crepes,












Afterwards we went to Linda's house for some happy hour. Aye made some drinks for us to taste for the first time. The drink she made was really different than we usually drink and it was sweet. At first you really can't tell it was an alcoholic drink because it tasted like candy but after awhile you will feel that feeling drunk and cray-crazy attitude already.




 Well that's all for now...

Starting working out again, Thanks to aye for being my new personal trainer at the gym.

Hiking this summer here I come!!!!

Until next time, 

BUH-BYE-BYE-BYE  !!

.My Randomness 67 : LOOK INSIDE MY DAYRE


Bonjour to the world of bloggers!

If someone ask me what is my most used app on my phone? I would probably say that Instagram was my favorite app last year. But since Instagram is one of the most used apps in our generation nowadays, I feel like it's becoming more and more like a Facebook account. Everybody has it on their phone. It was cool at first, but when there are too many people use it, it kinda lost that feeling of coolest. You know what I mean?

So today, I have a new app that I'm cray-cray about. It's called "Dayre" it's a combination of a blog and the effect of having an Instagram. Basically it's a blog on my phone. I can blog when ever or whatever I'm doing on my phone. Isn't it that nice to have on your phone?

The first thing you will see on Dayre, it's the home screen, where you can find posting a blog, uploading pictures, videos, using emoji icons, and checking in. I even convince my bf to open his own Dayre account.


Ever since I started using Dayre, I try not to miss a day without writing one single blog entry. It's like my daily blog on the go.


and my favorite emoji icons I always use is the pink lady with bangs because she reminds of me when I had bangs and her actions are so cute.

So if you want to follow on Dayre my username is obviously dayre.me/theepolkadotlady

Well that's all for now,

Oh you guys want a bonus app?

Here is my highest score on flappy bird which is I suck at playing this game.

 I still can't believe flappy bird is no longer available though.


It's been a long time since I wrote a random post. I should do this more often.

Until next time,

Au revoir

.MY JOURNAL 89: MY OATH TO YOU


Why hello there!!
 
 I got an exciting news to share with you guys. Dont worry its not a long post this time, i'll try to keep it short and simple today..

So lets beginning...

The good news I'm about to tell you guys is the one that change my status here in United States. I'm talking about the day I got my citizenship.


This is the day I have been waiting for so long. I think the process of getting my citizenship took me almost 4 months since I mailed my application form. After that I had my fingerprints, and successfully passed my interview in Downtown San Francisco U.S Immigration.
Then on Feb 12, my father, bf and I went to my official Oath Taking Ceremony at Oakland Theater. We took the bart to get there and they were 870 applicants like me who became U.S citizen that day. I really like the Theater and the ceremony was actually really nice. I liked it 


While I was sitting there next to hundreds of applicants who have the same goal as mine, I kept thinking about my past and how it is such a huge accomplishment for me to received my naturalization and finally proud to say that I'm a U.S citizen now. Because of this citizenship, I will prove to those people who doubted me and treated me unfairly like I'm nothing compare to them before. 


Then after the ceremony, we went straight to Red Bowl to eat some noodles and over rice dishes. Le boo ordered the beef and broccoli over rice and I ordered the combination noodle soup and then my father ordered his favorite beef stew. 
Later on that day, I went to my first cleaning to my new dentist. I got a lot of dentist appointment next month so, I'm really nervous about that but like I said......

I'm keeping up with my goals this year. One down, four more to go!!!! 

Well that's all for now

Until next time,

.My First time 1 : EXPLORATORIUM


Hello again my lovely bloggers !

This year I'm going start a new segment called "My First time". Like I said in my 2014 goals, I want to step outside my comfort zone and experience new things. I want to go place I never been to, eat food that I want to discover, activities that are fun to do with my le boo or my friends.

So today, I'm going to write about my first time at Exploratorium in Pier 15, San Fran. This museum is actually an interactive mind blowing science museum for kids and adult to visit. I had fun learning new ways to learn more about science basically. What got me interested about going here was every time we went to Pier 39 to eat late night snack, I always see this huge logo of Exploratorium. So I thought we should check it out. My boo and I went there for a little day time date.

So here are some of the pictures we took...



Then we went to the restaurant they have inside..


We got the beef rib-eye sandwich and baked pasta. I really liked the sandwich, it was really fresh and it's organic, so its was a plus for me. Yeah for organic! (*^﹏^*)

Well that's all for now....

Mission accomplished for last month's first time. I'm looking forward to this month's first time. So you guys should watch out for that!!!

Until next time,

P/S There one more blog post below ⇩ If you guys dont mind reading it after this o∩_∩o

BUH-BYEEEEEE!

.My JOURNAL 88 : JAN SUMMARY


Hello my lovely bloggers ^^

I still can't believe the month of January is already done! I mean it went by so quick, just like that 11 months to go for the year of 2014.

So let's look back to what I've accomplished last month.

JAN 1 : PURPLE KOW AND SUNSET

Let me start at the beginning, which is the first day of January.

It was unplanned first date with my le boo at Ocean beach. At first we went to Purple Kow and I did not expect the place was really busy that day. I admit I thought people are too lazy to go outside the house or maybe hungover because of the night before. But I guess I was wrong. Whe we came there, the line was really long and I stood for almost 30 min or so just to order our drinks.

But because of determination of drinking that milk tea, i knew waiting in line was really worth it.So after that, we went to ocean beach which is near Purple Kow. Then we took some pictures with our matching shirt and watch the sunset. It was a delightful day to spend time with my bf before he started his new job the day after that.



JAN 15 : BEARS ARE IN THE HOUSE

Then on the 15th, we had a little get together kind of party at my bf's house. We always go out and about when we get together, so it was nice to spend some quality time with the bear family inside the house. Although, we never seems to be complete family every time we do all this kind of event, it was alright to just be content with one another.

I'm just happy people came and had fun that night. All we did was played Dance Central on the xbox 360 with kinnect, ate alot of food, took a lot of pictures as well, sang along at the karaoke and played our favorite drinking game, Kings Cup.



JAN 18 : 32nd MONTHSARY DATE

My boo and I celebrated another monthsary on 18th, which is our 32nd month or our 2 years and 8 months together as a couple.

Wow, I still can't believe we are almost approaching that 3 year anniversary this year. I still feel like we are stuck in that stage where we still need to learn more about each other's feelings and goals in life. So we take it day by day, for us to be certain that one day we might be or not meant to be for each other.


For our monthsary date, we went to our favorite Japanese Ramen restaurant at Ajisen Ramen at Westfield Mall. Honestly I CANsay that the two of us are addicted to eating ramen at Ajisen.Then we went to another location which is where he asked me to be his gf at Ghirardelli Square. He ordered his favorite hot chocolate and I had my favorite chocolate covered strawberries. We sat outside for a couple of hours and just took some random pictures and talk about our past relationship and how we had to overcome some challenges and changes in our lives.



JAN 25 : EXPLORATORIUM ADVENTURE

Going to Exploratorium for the first time was really out of the ordinary date with my boo.
Which I'm not going into details about it here because I might write a separate blog post about the experience we had at Exploratorium. For now, I'll just post a couple of pictures we had that day.


JAN 6&25 : SHORTER HAIR AND NEW HAIR COLOR 

I always say that every new year is the new me, so what is better than improving my appearance than just stay the same boring me.

I had my hair shorter than last year's hair cut. This is the shortest hair I had ever since elementary school and trust me I hated my short hair back then. And since I'm already bored with my semi-blonde hair, I had it change to Red Copper Blonde color. Now it looks like a bright semi-Rihanna colored hair.

JAN 1-30: NEW ITEMS 

Then last but not the least, the new items I got last month.
 Starting at the first picture on the left side, I got this hypoallergenic facial towelettes from YestoCucumbers for my travel essential. I love it so much that I think I might purchase the 100 sheets next time. Then on the right, my mother got me this floral compact mirror. This mirror reminds me of Sailor Moon's powder compact. Don't you guys think so?

Then we moved on to the bottom left picture which is my two new favorite phone case. I always get the blue, pink and red kind of phone case, so I bought this two cute purple vintage dream catcher and silicone clear flip case cover. Next is the last item where I bought it at Daiso at the end of the month of 2013. I bought myself another notebook and turn it into my 2014 planner. I divided into four content; first is my Goals for 2014, second is my Notes/To-Do list, third is my Blog post/First times, and then  fourth is my random thoughts/wish list.

Well that's all for now....

What a long blog post huh??

BUH-BYE-YOH!!!
