Friday I’m in Love!!

12 Nov

“I don’t care if Monday’s blue”
“Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday’s doom”
“Thursday I don’t care about you”
“It’s Friday I’m in love”

How’s your week been going so far? Mine is okay and for sure this week I am exercising almost ( I took Monday as my rest day) daily with today as my rest day. It makes me feel good even though it’s only a short exercise, as long I push to my maximum effort, I still get the endorphin 😀 I am not a big fan of long exercise per say so that’s why I’ve been following this gorgeous girl’s workout video.

“Monday you could fall apart”
“Tuesday Wednesday break my heart”
“Oh Thursday doesn’t even start”
“It’s Friday I’m in love”

Another good news is my brother is getting much better day to day. His temperature has been pretty stable for the past 3 weeks. The only thing that was still bugging my parents were his high heart rate. It’s true it’s been slowly going down but recently he redid heart echo reading and there was something different there (too much complicated medical term and I won’t bother trying to post it here). So long story short after we got referred by one of my cousin’s friend recommendation, we drove all the way down to UCLA Medical Center to see a Cardiologist.

The commute took us about an hour one way (yay to the traffic on 405, 10 and 105)
And as I drove down to this area, I was thinking of these ladies. (maybe next time I come up here we could do a little blogger meet up? :D)

Boy! This doesn’t look like a hospital/health center at all! The bright and modern interior reminds me a lot of an ad agency!

Cardiologist said we don’t have to worry about the heart condition at all. My brother is totally fine. That put my parents into an ease. For sure they finally can go back home in December without much worries anymore.


“Saturdaaaay, wait”
“Sunday always comes too late”
“But Friday never hesitates”

Next day I had to replenish my car’s gas tank in the freezing morning temperature on my way to work

That morning I made steamed sweet potatoes for my b-fast. Left them too long and got mushy! Ugh!!!

I took one, and I think my family finished the other one. It was meant for K to bring, but by the time he was about to leave, they weren’t done yet! FAIL. It took me a whole morning to finish those. They were filling!

And I made Chicken with Portabello Mushrooms. Was okay, family didn’t enjoy it as much (tasteless – haha I have a very light taste buds so didn’t put much salt and seasonings – maybe next time)

First time cooking using Portabello mushrooms..they are good!


Something to talk about:
1. I am still pretty new in blogging world and I realize the way I interact in blogging community doesn’t differ much from how I interact in real life. For example, no matter what I still need to reach out to other people’s blog if I want to have more readerships. Same thing in real life too, right? I have to start go out and meet more people if I want to increase my community circle. Unfortunately, I am not that type of person. I interact better in smaller community. When I first started this blog, I felt like I had to keep searching for new blog and put comments on every single blog so I’ll get more readers come to my blog. After a while, it just wore me up. I can’t do it. But I don’t care anymore how many readers I have here. This is my blog and who cares if there’re anyone reading, commenting or not. I will comment and read other blogs ONLY IF I have the time to do it. I don’t have to make it as my daily duties. I’m sure every bloggers have this kind of issue someway in their blogging path. But I won’t lie that I DO ENVY those popular bloggers who always have LOTS of comments on his/her blog. So I’d LOOOOVE to hear your thoughts on this matter.

2. I know there were some posts that I was venting off so much and full of negative thoughts and would like to thank those who’ve been encouraging and understanding my situation. I don’t do this enough but I thank EVERYONE for sticking around with me going thru the tough time. Now the situation keeps getting better 🙂

3. What’s everyone’s plan this coming weekend? I have a dentist appointment tomorrow and meet up with one of my friend afterward since she lives around that area.

“Monday you could hold your hands”
“Tuesday Wednesday stay in bed”
“Thursday watch the walls instead”
“It’s Friday I’m in love”

Have a good weekend, everyone! 😀

    as a blogger, it sucks to not have as many readers as you would like…I started my blog at the same time another did and she is one of the big bloggers now and I’m not…the truth is though…how much time and energy do you put into your blog compared to others? Me? Not a ton…so i understand why my voice isn’t as popular…and on top of that…I gave up on commenting on the “Bigger bloggers” posts just to get comments on mine..I rather have the handful of TRUE readers than ones that say “great!” or “yum!”. Be happy with your blog cause at the end of the day, it’s YOU.

      Girl, I like you 😀

      And yeah I know I don’t put that much thought, time and energy on my blog either..mostly I just wanna write down about my life (interesting finds, fun stuff, sad stuff, disappointment, anger etc) and food. And I totally agree with you for not commenting on the “bigger bloggers” I think they have more than enough readers to comment.

    OMG, I love you so much!! I TOTALLY agree with you!!
    You are SUPER-brave that you can actually declare/say “I don’t care how many readers I have anymore” but also admit that you envy those people who gets a lot of comments. I ❤ you so much for saying that! I need to…work on that ha ha 😀

    True, I want more readers, too (and going to that iheartwellness account? works pretty well, in a way. You get to meet new people), but then, I KNOW there are people that read it and comment on it (like you! I ❤ you for that!!) But then yes, I do get jealous of people who has a billion comments 😉 I'm human too, you know lol

    Plan: hang out with my bf, do homework, and study for my chem test (eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeww lol)!

    It's so cool to know that your brother is doing better! Aren't you glad/relieved???

    OMG I just realized something about the comments that you get on your blog: You get less comments than people, but those each individual comments on your blog is more thoughful and LONG. So if you spread them into little comment blocks, you'll probably have a good amount 🙂

    Also glad to hear your brother is slowly feeling better. Wow, what a journey he’s going through. I’m not much of a blogger, but I’m still being exposed to other bloggers when I click on links or comments on the blogs’ I read. They’re interesting, to say the least. I like the more personal and blogs that tell a lot about the individual…some of them seem very impersonal — and those tend to be the most popular? I don’t know, haha. That was just my observation/feeling.

    Hey Jos,

    Really glad to hear that your brother is feeling better and that your parents can leave without worrying. I get worried when I leave my daughter for 2 hours at playschool (haha). I can imagine how worried your parents would be going home not know how your brother will be.

    I didn’t know you follow Ameena’s blog. I adore her! You know how I feel about blogging and comments. Just blog when you can and don’t feel pressured to comment. I blog and leave comments because I enjoy it, not because I want comments in return. I also like to be supportive of new bloggers cause I was once there not too long ago as well. Good luck with blogging, and always remember to just have fun. Don’t get sucked into the abyss 😉

    My in-laws are in town from Vancouver to celebrate my son’s two year old birthday with him this weekend. I feel so warm on my children’s birthdays.
