My family and I went to go and see Transformers in 3D.

It wasn’t great, but at least it was entertaining.

One thing our family discussed at length after the movie was how cool it would be to have our very own Transformer.

Which then, of course, made me wonder…what if my car…my little blue-gray Prius was a Transformer???

Hmm…I think that I’ll name him Spike. (But only because the Transformers Name Generator told me that “Toyota Prius” translates into “Spike.”)

Just for fun, I put my entire family in:

Grace: Galvatron
Peter: Pipes
Faith: Hotspot
Mom: Percepter
Dad: Mixmaster

Somehow, all very appropriate and fun.

Okay, time for bed. Good night~


…Made these girls cry.

Oh man, the last movie was so good~ All the hype aside, I was genuinely impressed by the last Harry Potter Movie and felt a sort of bittersweet closure to a chapter of my childhood. Good times, Harry. Good times.

Yes, it’s true, Faith and I did hold hands for the entire 2.5 hours!

Whether it was reading the books during middle and high school, watching the movies during high school and college, and even going to Harry Potter Land in Orlando last weekend, I was able to enjoy my time at Hogwarts for almost half of my life. And now it’s time to finally move on.

This summer, I read through the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, re-read the Chronicles of Narnia, and finished the Hunger Games trilogy. I am having a hankering for a new great series, and hopefully, someone will come up with one soon. In the meantime, I’ll probably re-read the Lord of the Rings again. (SO GOOD!)

If any of you have any recommendations, please throw them my way, pronto!

I left my computer charger at home over Christmas and have been computer-less for the past couple of days…

But thanks to some nice peoples, I am now fully charged and ready to go!

Happy New Years, my friends ❤

2010 was an uphill kind of year, but I fully anticipate the adventures involved with 2011. I’m so ready to fly through this new year. When I write an entry in 2012, I pray that it will be filled with lovely memories.

Usually, around this time, people on the Webernet go through their top ten favorite memories and looks-back at 2010. Here are mine.

  1. Haiti: This one event changed my outlook on life eternally. I am so grateful to everyone I was able to meet.
  2. I Wish I Was A Little Bit Taller: This blog was my first step to publicly express myself creatively, and the response was so much more generous that I had expected. Thank you all.
  3. Shanghai/Korea: The traveling was exhausting and difficult physically, but I was so inspired by everything that I saw…It was an architect’s paradise!
  4. My LEED Accreditation: I thought that I would never pass this exam. Thank you, God, for mercifully letting me pass!!!
  5. ISA New York 2010: Aside from getting to see my favorite YouTube artists and hang out with my lovely friends, I had never felt so proud of being an Asian American. It was an eye-opening experience.
  6. HD: My HD class/group/family at Metro…I learned so much from these brothers and sisters, and man…I am so grateful for their life stories and perspectives on life.
  7. Christmas 2010: Talk about a taste of Heaven. Want to see a clip? Click HERE to see what I’m raving about.
  8. A New Job: After December 2009’s disappointing job incident, being granted a brand new job opportunity in January 2010 was an unexpected surprise and blessing. Praise God!
  9. The Random Moments: From cliff diving, to meeting Far East Movement, to seeing 2PM, meeting the Wondergirls in Chelsea, to the Metro Football Team winning their 2nd Year Championship…all these little happy random moments were awesome.
  10. Every Day, Really: God blessed/protected me and my family every single day. I love them so much, and am grateful for every day we have together in health and happiness.

What are your favorite memories?

I was fortunate to ring in the New Year with my closest friends in New Jersey. It was a little bit chaotic stuffing 40 people in a little room (as you will see in this video), but I wanted to share this little moment with you all.

Happy New Year~

It’s been over a month since our return from Haiti.

And before the memory falls cold in our minds, here’s a short film shot and edited from a fellow Haiti Teammate (Scott Kwak) that recaps our journey to the beautifully tragic nation of Haiti.

A HUGE thank you again to all who supported me financially and prayerfully, as well as my fellow Haiti Missions team members.

This Christmas, please consider bringing the gift of hope to the children at Grace International, by sponsoring a single child from Grace Village (as shown in the video).

From my first-hand experience, the difference that a sponsorship makes is witnessing a child escaping the clutches of death and being thrust into the opportunities of life.

Love you, my lovely readers~

I love being an American.

Sure, America is flawed in many ways, but I wouldn’t have had such a musical magical fancy free night anywhere else in the world.

It started off with my friends Vicki and Grace. The three of us went to the Chelsea Theater in Manhattan for the Sound of Music’s 45th Anniversary, where they held a Sound of Music Sing-A-Long.

We are SO Ready to Sing Along (and thanks, Mom, for the roasted peanuts~)

(If you’re a fan of the Sound of Music, find a showing near you!)

These Sisters were REALLY Ready to Sing Along!

I not-so-surprisingly had SO MUCH FUN. If you knew me as a kid, I used to memorize, word-for-word, every old-school Disney VHS in existence. I even owned all of the sing-a-long videos and watched them till the tape wore out.

I felt like a little kid again, following the sing-a-long text at the bottom of the screen, and even clapped along with the rest of the audience. FUN!

All in all, a SPLENDID time.

After the movie was over, and after I said good-night to my friends, I traveled into the subway systems of NYC to head on home.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t really paying attention and ended up taking the wrong train a bit too far. When I realized how far off I was, I immediately got off of the car to backtrack. (I do this more often than you may think.)

That’s when I got another taste of awesome musicality.

I never had a chance to get his name, but this one guy had been serenading all of the impatient NYC commuters with some Stevie Wonder, Brian McKnight, and even Usher~ While I rarely ever tip the people singing in the subway systems, this guy was good. And he actually made my wait enjoyable. So a tip he got, and the vid below I shot. Let it Buuuuuurnnn~

I had to make a transfer on my way back, and I saw an elderly gentleman providing some old-timey entertainment as a miniature version of a one-man-band.

Maybe not as talented, but it still made me nostalgic of the music I used to hear on the Ocean City Boardwalk as a kid.

As I am preparing to leave for Haiti this Saturday, I am realizing more than ever how much we take for granted here. Things may be tough right now, but at least I can live in a society where I can draw comics, blog freely, and if I wanted to, dress like a Nun, run around in costume, sing “The Hills are Alive” at the top of my lungs, and do it all without fear or shame.
