I’m 25 and I feel so alive!

I had the best birthday ever today. Which is saying a lot, because last year’s birthday was pretty sweet.

It started on Saturday, when I got to have the most amazing lunch extravaganza with my family at Azul 17, where the owner gave us a royal treatment to the most delicious Mexican food I have ever had in my life.

If you’re ever in the Columbia, Maryland area, I highly recommend it. And if you want to see live Salsa dancing, be sure to make a reservation on Saturday night at 10 pm, and you’ll be given an extra treat~

On Sunday, my friend at New Hope surprised me with a beautiful birthday cake, and today, I was treated out for a delicious lunch at work by two of my co-workers.

And then, my other co-workers went even further by giving me beautiful flowers, cupcakes, and a whole lot of love. I also think that my face was a shade of maroon for the entirety of their gift giving. It was the first time I had ever been given flowers as a gift…I was incredibly grateful!

At the end of a wonderful day at work, I waited at the bus stop to catch my ride home.

Unfortunately, the beautiful snow that had been falling earlier had turned into very cold rain, the bus was 20 minutes late…and I forgot my umbrella yet again.

And that’s when I got an unexpected birthday gift…from a complete stranger~

I let her know that she and her kind gesture were like a surprise birthday present from God on my birthday, and how thankful I was. She laughed and told me that she was holding her umbrella anyway, and that it wasn’t a big deal, but it was a big deal for me…so random lady at the bus stop? I thank you for your kindness~

25 never felt so good and I am so blessed. Thank you all, and good night!


PS: Happy 8th Birthday to Mini-Grace~

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!



People are already donating and reserving their Facebook Timeline banners~! YAY!

My sister was one of the earliest givers (thank you, Faithy~).

And seeing as how we live with each other, I started with her Timeline profile first.

Heck, I even whipped out the camera again to do some more photo-shooty action.

Again, the timeline banners don’t have to be of a comic, or interacting with your profile pictures, unless you want it to. I promise to make your wildest Facebook Timeline dreams come true~

Love you all. Are you ready for Christmas??? D-3!!!

Annnd, here are the full-sized versions of the photos I took of Faithy. You know. Just for fun.

She so purty.

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!

Between the earthquake and Hurricane Irene, I’ve been spending a lot of time indoors.

The fun events I was planning on partaking in this weekend were unfortunately cancelled, but I’m glad that everyone was playing things safe and staying indoors and out of harm’s way.

As I was sitting in front of the computer, I tried to think of things to write up for my comic.

I thought of covering the earthquake, but I think everyone has heard enough stories about the over-hyped event.

I was then going to write about Hurricane Irene, but (thank God), nothing too dramatic has occurred in my area.

I had no more ideas. The winds and rain were bad enough to prevent me from leaving to gain inspiration, so I thunked my head on the window and tried to think a comic into existence.

It’s a really good thing that I have a quirky sister who noticed my frustration and knew just what to do to make me laugh.

Lol, slightly inappropriate, but it was so random that it made me laugh.

Peter has already left for his last year of college, and Faith is about to go in for her very first. She is all growed up now~

I pray that everyone on the east coast is safe and sound during this hurricane.

I’ll just pass my time watching old Disney movies and Singing in the Rain~

Some of my co-workers have been asking me why I don’t wear my hair down very often…

For those of you who don’t know, my hair is actually pretty long and wavy…but on the rare occasion that I do wear it down, it usually gets pulled back up into the ponytail by the end of the day.

Now that I’ve moved back to DC, the rare occasions have become even rarer!

Why? Because…

I get (what we like to call) an “Asian Fro.”

Haha, what can you do? Maybe when the summer season is over, I’ll try braving some hair “down time”  again.

Sorry for the delay in the final video. Things have been a bit busy with work, and I haven’t been able to make it home at a decent hour yet this week, so things are kind of on hold until the weekend. Thanks for your patience~

Are you sick of seeing my face, yet?

Here’s another video! Enjoy!

Only one more to go, and the comics come back. Hang in there!

My special project has finally begun!

To be honest, it may not seem like a project to other people, but as I have never video edited before, it took me much longer than expected and became quite the pet project for me.

Anyways, here’s Day 1 of my family’s time in Orlando~ I hope you enjoy and look forward to the other days to come!

Another Faith Friday, and this time, it’s a PSA.

Um. Yeah. I leave it to you guys to find the wisdom.

Stay cool in this cah-ray-zee heat wave~
