Is it just me or is it cold out here?


I take public transportation to work, and that means a lot of waiting outside in the cold until the bus arrives.

Before I went to work today, my awesome mom handed me a little care package for the road.


Ahh…that moment when you realize no matter how crazy your mom may sound at first…she always ends up being right.

I felt pretty bad for the people standing in line with me. I kept fondling the toasty warm eggs in my pocket, and I’m sure that I made a pretty strange sight.

Anywhoo, stay warm, my lovely readers, and stay healthy~

Everyone seems to be getting sick, so pump that Purell! Wash them hands! And if you are sick, please don’t cough without covering your mouth with your sleeve! Thaaanks~


Phew! 2011 is OVAH, and 2012 is HERE!

According to the WordPress Summary Report I got yesterday:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

(Click the image above for the full statistics!)


That’s a lot of love. Thank you all for making 2011 the most successful year yet for my blog!

Since Christmas, I have been reflecting on the past year, and how much has changed in my life since last January

  1. In January, I rang in the New Year with my friends in New Jersey, and spent the rest of the month battling icy sidewalks, broken apartment heaters, and searching for my snow-buried car.
  2. In February, I continued to deal with crazy NYC Metro incidents, and Starbucks came out with their new “Trenta”-sized coffee.
  3. In March, I talked dirty to the Starbucks baristas, got bitten by a Vampider, and packed my bags to move back to the MD/DC area to work as an architect!
  4. In April, I shot my very first firearm, and shared trade secrets, including how to avoid bedtime bugs and how to make their very own photo comics~
  5. In May, I enjoyed my mother’s amazing cooking, tried to bring sexy back, almost accidentally killed my brother, and went fishing for river monsters.
  6. In June, I practiced my golf swing at the range, and tried to convince a stranger that I didn’t fart in an elevator.
  7. In July, my family went to Orlando’s Islands of Aventure, Faith gave a shot at making her own comics, and I pondered deeply on what my Prius would look like if it was a Transformer
  8. In August, I broke down and finally got myself a new computer, and experienced one of the most disgusting things in my life, and it was all my dad’s fault.
  9. In September, I went fossil hunting with my dad, helped my grandfather get Sex on the Beach, and had a stranger’s butt too close for comfort to my face.
  10. In October, I got myself some new glasses, and learned how to deal with my Dad’s creeping and my Mom’s backseat Facebook driving.
  11. In November, I began my very first Mini-Series comics (in which my own boss cameo’d), celebrated 11/11/11 at 11:11 am, and started my own Non-Profit Organization for Haiti by selling my comics.
  12. Finally, in December, I got to try my hand out again as a photographer, gingerbread architect, and singer/dancer.

What in the world could 2012 possibly bring? 2011 had a new job, new lifestyle, new locale, new friends, and a new look for me. I lost 15 lbs, started a non-profit that raised over $1000 in a month’s time, worked for a job that I absolutely love, and am the happiest I have been in a long time. I have no idea, but I have a really good feeling that God is still going to outdo 2011~

My own goals for 2012 include becoming fully licensed as an architect by the end of 2012, taking the New Mercy Project to the next level, and Lord willing (as corny as it may sound), finding love.

And no worries, lovely readers. I’ll be sure to take you all on this journey with me. Here’s to 2012~

새해 복 많이 받으세요!


PS: If you wanted the rest of the Christmas Videos I took, I’ve put them below!



This past weekend has been one of the best I’ve had all year.

And after I gave Mini-Grace her present, I think that she can probably say the same thing.

And by darling, I mean you, lovely reader~

Merry Christmas! I hope and pray that you all had a fantastic Christmas today!

My weekend was filled with good times, a fun and entertaining musical production at Bridgeway Community Church, and later on, a wonderful get-together with my Bridgeway, New Hope, and immediate family.

What can I say? I have a very big family.

Lots of dancing, singing, eating, laughing, worshipping, and other goods stuffs went down, and I’ll eventually get to documenting it all~


I also made a little something special for Mini-Grace for Christmas, and tomorrow, I’ll show you what her reaction is! Look forward to it!

For more pictures of my weekend, click HERE.


Thanks for your patience~ I’m back!

What a month! December has been pretty crazy with work, Haiti, and getting ready for the Christmas Musical.

But~ I am so excited about all of these projects and what’s to come.

2012 is going to be a great year, I can feel it!

Love your faces, my lovely readers. Thanks for an amazing year, and keep posted for more comics and videos!

The plot thickens…

Hang in there, lovely readers. More shenanigans to be had this upcoming Wednesday  Thursday!

I hope you all had an amazing Thanksgiving holiday!

My family certainly did!

Happy Thanksgiving, from the Whang Gang.


Happy Pepero Day~

For those of you who don’t know, in South Korea, Pepero (or in Japan, “Pocky”) Day is celebrated every year on November 11th.


Do you see it?

11/11 looks a lot like the individual sticks of Pepero in the box, so every year, people give their loved ones or sweethears boxes of Pepero, in a mini-version of Valentine’s Day. And, this year is especially special for all who celebrate, because it’s 11/11/11!

If you hit up your local Korean market today, you will find some pretty amazing versions of the normally standard little red boxes of Pepero and Pocky.

Mini-Grace got me one of those special Millenium Edition boxes for Pepero Day.

Don’t worry, I got one for her, too! Size-wise, it works out really well for the both of us~

But seriously…those giant Pepero boxes are kind of ridiculous.

As fun as this silly holiday is, unfortunately, it’s been yet another year where only Mini-Grace has given me a box of Pepero.

Here’s hoping that by next year (though it may not be the Millenium Pepero year), I will be blogging about the boy that gives me my very own box of chocolate-covered goodies.

For now, will you, my lovely readers, accept this gift and celebrate this day with me?

What, is my math off?

Trust me, it’s not~

Apparently, Friday’s post of Andy’s Photo Comic sparked a lot of interest on Facebook and Gmail, and almost 20 requests for photo comics have come in.

In the past, I have been very hesitant in drawing photo comics for people, mainly due to people promising to pay me for the commissions, only to have “forgotten.” Or, people requesting them, and never following up.

But because you have all been quite persistent…and because I haven’t held a large-scale photo comic offering in a while…

Here’s the skinny on how this will work out:

  1. Between now and Christmas, I will draw up to 30 photo comics for you lovely readers.
  2. Here’s the catch: If you want the photo comic, you have to go to and donate a minimum of $30 to support the children’s feeding program in Haiti.
  3. Once you’ve donated, send an e-mail to with your name, and a high res photo of yourself or the person you want photo-comic’ed.
  4. If you send your donation and photo in before December 1st, I can ensure the delivery of your photo comic before Christmas.

So what does this have to do with the “30 x 30 = 2,700”?

Well, if I draw 30 comics at $30 a pop…and, if $1 can feed 3 children in Haiti’s weekly feeding program…

…Then by the end of the year, your purchasing this one-of-a-kind photo comic will feed 2,700 Haitian children for Christmas. That’s enough to feed every single child on Grace International’s campus.

What better Christmas present could you possibly give than the gift of hope and life? (Plus, your purchase will be tax-deductable!)

As a bonus, I will post your photo comic (and promote any website/cause you represent) on this blog, as well as on the New Mercy Project’s website, with the title of “Featured Donor.”

The ball is now in your court, lovely readers~ Let’s make it work!

Yay, an update!

It’s been an entire week since I’ve last updated, but it feels like it’s been longer for some reason.

I’ve been putting in quite a few hours at work, and had to spend most of yesterday in the office as well, so comics have been (unfortuanately) non-existant this week.

Sleep has been pretty hard to come by, too, which resulted in my transformation into a zombie at home.

Good thing Mom is good at fighting off zombies. (My poor chesticles are still sore from that punch.)


To answer the question I *know* is burning in your minds…

Yes, I do actually own a pair of leopard print pajamas.

Too, too sexy, I know.

I have an actual photo comic in the works for this week! If I can get home at a decent hour, I will do my best to get it up before the weekend!

Love you all, and thanks for continuing to read this blog!

I got to go on a weekend outing with my grandparents.

During our ride up to our vacation, my grandfather let me know about something that he’s always wanted to do.

At the tender age of 80, my grandfather finally got to order his very first cocktail. He enjoyed it very much, although when it came time for him to order it, he couldn’t remember the “Sex” part and kept asking for an “On da Beech” over and over.

Fortunately, a woman nearby managed to figure out what he wanted and laughter ensued.

Today is the 10th Year Anniversary of 9/11. So many things can be said, but I think President Obama summed it up best through his quoting of the Bible during this morning’s NYC Memorial Service:

Psalm 46

1 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3 though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High dwells.
5 God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8 Come and see what the LORD has done,
the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease
to the ends of the earth.
He breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
he burns the shields with fire.
10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth.”

11 The LORD Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

As an architect and as someone who has lived and worked in both DC and NYC, seeing the memorials being built and brought to completion has been a powerful experience.

We remember, and we pray for a better future.
