Happy Memorial Day, everyone! God Bless America~

I love getting Monday’s off.

The Whang Family celebrated an American Memorial Day BBQ style with a Korean twist.

And I thought to myself, the beautiful thing about this country is that there is so much cultural diversity here. So I’m going to spread some of that diverse love by teaching you all how to BBQ, Korean style.

(Just for your reference, when I mention “kochujang“, I am talking about a Korean Chili Paste/Sauce that is fannnntastic~)

Prepare to drool.

And there you have it. Give it a try sometime, or stop on by the Whang casa to try it first hand~

And a huge “thank you” to all who have served and are currently serving in the U.S. Military.

My misadventures on the bus continues…

I am such a narcoleptic in moving vehicles.

Though the comic may not show it, I was almost face first in his side when I woke up. I was terrified to look up, worried that he would be staring down at me, disapprovingly when I did. But thankfully, he was fast asleep, just like I had been.

He was so very soft. Good thing I didn’t drool…like last time…

It’s kind of a process.

Hello my lovely readers! Long time no see/blog/etc.!

I managed to clock in almost 80 hours this week at work, and all of my comic ideas were sadly put on standby, where they sat and grew fat and flabby.

Like my butt.

Around 11 pm on Wednesday night at my office, I turned around and looked in the mirror in the bathroom and saw that nastiness. While proper dieting has allowed my waist to get close to my ideal size, my bottom (due to weeks of inactivity) had unfortunately not followed suit.

So I’m back to hitting the gym hard. I signed up at Lifetime Fitness, and am thoroughly enjoying the top-of-the-line facilities that they have available.

True story: I actually bruised my chin because of that weird ab-roller wheel thingy. I obviously have a long way to go to getting back to my ideal shape, but signing up for a gym was the first step in getting the ball rolling.

I feel so much better physically and mentally because of working out, and I am going to start working out with a trainer very soon. I’m sure that will be a comic in itself~

Wish me (and my badonkadonk) luck! And look forward to more posts now that I’m on a decent schedule again!

Thanks for your patience~

There’s a reason why I avoid sports that are outside of Tae Kwon Do.

In Tae Kwon Do, the point is to damage your opponent, and that seems to be the only thing I’m good at doing. Even unintentionally. Even to my own self.

The thing is, I can dish out the pain, but can’t really take it myself. I tripped in the parking lot yesterday, my high heel shoe fell off, and my bare foot road-rashed and my toes got shredded up. My mom was out of town, so dad had to play doctor, and it was quite a dramatic affair, with me writhing in agony on the kitchen island as he cleaned the tiny bit of blood squirting out of my wounds.

It’s a good thing that the weak sauce gene doesn’t run in the family.

My poor brother. Next time, he’s going to have to bring a helmet and hopefully, I’ll bring some common sense.

Fortunately, he wasn’t too damaged. After all, what you can’t remember can’t hurt you, right?

Dear Mom,

I know what you’re thinking.

I am such a deep poet, aren’t I?

If you don’t know already, my mom is a Queen among queens…

That has to deal with an interesting family.

A really…really interesting family.

I mean…a really, really, really interesting family.

We wish we were as cute as her…

…but wishing and being are two different things.

(I think that I look a lot more like my cartoon character in the last frame above.)

If it were not for Mom, we would not be the people we are today. So thank God for Mom!

We love you, Mom, and are so blessed to have such an amazing mother like you. Thank you for your sacrifice, for your love, for bringing our entire family to Christ, for fighting hard for our success, for your strength, and for you being the exemplary mother that I pray that I can be one day.

Happy Mother’s Day!

I was cutting through the Bass Pro Shop at the Arundel Mills Mall

…When I saw a gigantic crate full of gigantic plush fish.

Despite the fact that I was a grown woman, I could not help it. I had to have one.

I grabbed the biggest one I could find, and proudly carried it all the way across the store and onto the cashier’s table.

Even though I had just finished shopping for a couple of nice outfits on killer sales at other stores, I think that my favorite purchase of the day was the one I made on my way back to the car.

(It’s also a lot of fun to wack little sisters over the head with.)

I think that I’ll name it Wade, after Jeremy Wade of River Monsters.

Tonight, I will be sleeping with the fishes.

Well…one fish, that is.
