All Time Favourite Seafood
I do not remember that I love seafood that much until I come to the States. I always love fish but shrimp and crab are not my picks most of the time. But story changes, I love shrimps so much lately. Not only I order shrimps whenever I go to seafood restaurants, I actually love to cook some shrimps dish at home.

Talk about home cook seafood dish, fried calamari has to be my all time favourite! I love to add in some curry powder in the mixed batter so it gives the fried calamari a better spicy taste. Whenever I make fried calamari, John will make his popular dish which is the baked pineapple salmon. We always enjoy our seafood home cook meal very much.

Well, you should know the Great American Seafood Cook Off is coming up soon. For those who love seafood like I do should not miss this show. This fifth Annual cook off will be held from Aug 2-3 at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center. It is one of America’s most prestigious culinary competitions, one chef and one state will walk away with the title of King of American Seafood.

I am looking forward to watch this show very much as I know many interesting delicious dish will be designed by those great chef. Through this event, you will be surprised to know that plentiful seafood are from America. Why not grab some local shrimp from the market and make yourself a gumbo?

Just Another Day...

Who will not love swidish meatball? Definitely not me nor John. We had that for dinner last night and they were sooo yummy. It was a 20mins prepared meal. I made some mash potato to go with it. Beef gravy + meatballs + mash potatoes... a perfect combination there! Yum Yum!

Today is Wednesday. No special plan until I came home from lunch with John. I wanted a pedicure badly. I told John I will go for one then I left the house and wandering around my area to find THE nail shop. I know there are at least 3 at my area here. I had no luck for the first 2 places I hopped in. They were fully booking with appointments but I am very satisfied with the third place I went, which is the nail shop that did my pedicure today.

Friendly polite workers, good skills and reasonable price. I really like this nail place. Definitely definitely will go back there again. I was totally in the heaven. I picked a very summer PINK and it turned out real nice! Aaaahhh... the feet and legs massage with warm river stones, I LOVE it!!! Then I dipped my feet in the hot wax as the final finishing. Wow!!! The aromatic oil that mixed in the wax smells soo good. My feet are smooth, toe nails are nicely shape and coloured. I am so looking forward to my next visit to this nail place. =)

Around 7 in the evening, it rained for a real short while. I need some rainning to kick away the terrible heat. The sky was soo rusty orangie color after the rain. I went to the front yard and snapped some pictures randomly. Oh! There I saw a pretty rainbow in the sky. I love rainbow. It never fails to cheer me up when I see one. I also snapped a picture of a plane flew by the rainbow!!! Wondered if the passenger up in flight saw the rainbow? I bet will be prettier right?!

That's my very old rusty mailbox.
Indeed, it is very Texas cowboy feel, don't you think so?

Carpal Tunnel Relieve
Have you heard about Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The median nerve runs from the forearm to the hand, it controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers, as well as impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers and thumb to move. So when you have experienced the tingling or numbness for months in your hand and wrist and you ignored it. Suddenly, it becomes a sharp, piercing pain shoots through the wrist and up your arm. Then more likely this sharp pain indicates that you have carpal tunnel syndrome.

Very sadly, the researches show that women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, perhaps because the carpal tunnel itself may be smaller in women than in men. Imagine all the restriction in your hand movement due to this syndrome and all the pain killer medication that you have to take. Do you know anyone who suffers Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? You should know how much they need Carpal tunnel relieve. IMAK smart glove is something you should tell them about.

My Drinks at Milwaukee
Milwaukee weather was soo lovely. I enjoy the few-day stays there. Anyway, I would like to show you all the drinks I had when I was there. I had some Milwaukee beers, Pabst. Some mixed drinks and a tequila shot. I din't go crazy with alcohol in this trip as I enjoyed listening to others conversation so much. I met John's aunts and cousins. They are all very nice and generous. Milwaukee is a very pretty city and I can see myself stay there. They all tell me the winter there is killing cold but I really wish to have a white Christmas there in the future?

I Wish I Can Have More Time...

I love to draw and I love to paint. When I was 8, I started taking painting class till I was 15. I missed those times I played with colors.

I been moving and relocated so much through my life and I am really regret that I did not keep my art works nicely like I should have. Even now, I still collecting nice color pencil, crayons.

When I visited my brother at Melbourne at year 2002, he gave me a nice sketch book. My brother was studying architecture that time and he has a sketch book fulled of many nice drawings. The first thing I drew on the sketch book, is the popular masterpiece of Micheal Angelo, "The Creation of Adam". I love this paint and I will never forget the moment when I finally get to eyeball it in Sistine Chapel, Rome.

I want to frame this paint one day and put it in my craft room. Well, seems like my craft room takes forever to get done huh?! I have to kick John's butt for that! Sometimes, I just wish I could have more time, so I can draw and paint again.

Interweaveknits Fall 2008 is out. I would say it is better than the Summer's. I have a quick peek at the projects and I found two that I am interested in, which is the Afterthought Darts Cardigan by Theresa Schabes and Whisper Stripe Pullover by Michele Rose Orne. I think the Whisper Stripe Pullover is a really sweet elegant pattern but I would alter the waist shaping to gain a better fit if I knitted it.

Also, Vogueknitting Fall is out too!!! Well, most of the patterns are death gorgeous but seems complicated work though. Not something that I will knit and wear this year. But there is one cardigan that I really like. Love the pattern, Love the color. I think a thicker yarn is used in this project. It looks so good on the model. I don't think I can carry this piece nicely as I personally think Big yarn and Big size does not go well together.

I am wishing will have some nice pattern for this fall! Still waiting for it.

Lazy Dinner Meal
Actually, there was no plan for today at all. I woke up at 9am, knitting and surfing in my living room. But Shirley came online around 10 something in MSN and she has her day off today. After we talked for awhile online, we decided to meet up. I changed and went over her place around noon. Our initial plan was going to Korean market, but plan A changed right away after she showed me what she got from Burberry outlet last week.

Big Clap for me as I conquered another city of Texas, which is Allen. I made it sounds like somewhere very far or hard to reach but it is actually only 15 minutes away from Shirley's place. We hopped in Burberry and I left he shop happily with some good stuffs. Of course Shirley din't leave the shop empty handed! haha~ We DECIDED not to spend any so we did not go to any other stores but headed to Market Street and had coffee at Peet's Coffee.

We had fun chatting there, exchanging our stories, bla bla bla... and time just flew away like that. Before we leave, I have to get something for the dinner. You know, you should make your hubby a better meal than usual after you spend unnecessary shopping (for his opinion of course)! I bought a pack of marinated bacon wrapped chicken breast. I think that will be something easy, delicious to make. I reached home around 5.20pm and we finished our dinner by 6.20pm. Something fast to make and I cooked some jasmine rice to go with the chicken.

Ah... I like quick, easy and tasty meal, just like this one. I love my life! haha~ Well, sometimes when I think of my life, I am really glad of what I have now. With the great blessing from God, I have a lovely family, all loving family members, many good good friends, extra POUNDS of lipid on my body to keep me warm in winter, balls of yarn for me to knit, a cute naughty Pepe (my dog), and black Rudolph (my car) to drive around. I might want a job badly but I know things take time and I won't stress myself over it at this moment. I thank God for what he provides.

I remembered the rough patch I had when I just came to the States. I cried over homesick everytime when I was in my shower for at least a month. I did not call home and tell anybody about it. I was afraid and refused to start my life in this new strange land. I couldn't see my future or anything, the only thing I could hold on was John. But now, I can feel my love to this land, I know and I accept the fact I should live my life and appreciate, grab the chances this country could offer. You know, love conquers all?! Haha~

Thanks God for your arrangement, and I would be fear and afraid no more on my path as I am not walking alone. Afterall, I am always the happy bimbo Kitman! Yeah!!!

Alzeimer's Memory Walk for Charity
It is the time of year again! We all can do something meaningful for our society! Remember the Alzeimer's Memory Walk I mentioned here year ago? Before I talk about this meaningful Alzeimer's Memory Walk again, I would like to briefly explain what Alzheimer disease is. It is a progressive, incurable condition that destroys brain cells, gradually causing loss of intellectual abilities, such as memory and extreme changes in personality and behavior. It is a very common disease among older people.

The Alzheimer's Association Memory Walk is the nation's largest event to raise awareness and funds for Alzheimer care, support and research. This event held annually in hundreds of communities across the country. A typical Memory Walk is a 2-3 mile walk held on a weekend morning in the fall. Since 1989, Alzeimer's Memory Walk has raised more than $225 million.

Do you want to participate in this meaningful event? If yes, then you are in! Team captains are needed now! You can go to the site and sign up now. As a team captain, you have to start your own team and invite your own team members. There are useful tools available at the site to guide you on the team formation. Don't waste time waiting, Team Captains need to sign up early to ensure they have enough time to recruit a team and raise funds for the great cause! Let's sign up now as Team Captains, select a walk near you and then start forming your team! Let us move closer to a world without Alzheimer's. Together, we can MOVE a nation.

Next Trip to Drug Store
There are certain things I want to get when I visit to my nearby drug store next trip. What else? Definitely some cheap and nice make up. The two things that in my list now are...

The colossol Volumn Express mascara


VolumeXLSeduction Lip Plumper

The mascara packaging is odd for me. Too banana or mangoish! But I want to know how good it is. For the Lip Plumper, the packaging looks nice. I have to get a better look at the shades while I visit to the drug store next time.

BB Cream! Love it!
B.B Cream is such a big hit skincare/make up product in Asia now. B.B stands for Blemish Balm. This cream is like in a foundation form or tinted moisturizer because it does not only come with the coverage effect, it also contains many other functions such as anti-aging, skin regenerating, oil control, sunscreen and pore minimizing.

I want to try one badly because I always interested in product that can minimize facial pores. After reading many reviews of B.B Creams which already launched in the market, I know I MUST try one.

Missha M B.B Cream Shiny is my choice. I want something which can give my face a sheer and glowing effect. Overall, I LOVE this product. I use it like a foundation after my routin skincare products. It is easily applied on the face and it spreads smoothly evenly on the skin. This cream contains pearl powder, which privdes radiance to my skin, also with SPF27. But there are two things about it that I am not very liking. First, the smell of it. It smells like SOAP, very alkaline. The scent is too strong for me. Second, is the color shade. I wish it comes in a lighter shade. Actually, the color is alright but I used to use something lighter like beige ivory.

I only used it for not even 2 weeks so I can't say my skin has improved due to this product. But I do know the difference before and after applying it. I took some pictures and share with you all. Well, nice things meant to be shared among right? From the picture, you can tell I have GIGANTIC pores problem, also with some redness spots around my face. After applying my B.B Cream, it gives me a better even tone skin, better complexion definitely. Those redness spots are nicely covered up. Also, it covers up my pores pretty well. I only apply real thin layer daily in the morning and I feel comfortable with it. It is not heavy masking and my skin still able to breath happily. =) I will keep using it and at the same time finding out more about other B.B creams out there.

You can get a better view clicking in for a larger picture. It looks like not much difference from what the picture shows above.

Can You Afford Your Medication?
Most of the prescription drugs are very expensive in this country. Therefore, prescription medication can be a financial burden to those either under insured or not insured. Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) are services offered by pharmaceutical companies for those who cannot afford their medication. These programs are available to low-income individuals or families who are under-insured or uninsured. Applicants will be able to get reduced cost drugs or even free medicine if they meet the eligibility guidelines.

If you really need assistance for your medication, please take a good look through all the assistance programs available in PAPs. You can search by drug or company name to find your medicines specific patient assistance program. In most cases, there is no cost associated with patient assistance programs.

I just wish you all are healthy and happy!
I talked to my mom last night. She complained about my dad on the phone. She said my dad is not taking good care of himself. Been drinking often and smoking as well. She wants me to talk to my dad.
This is a headache issue. My father is like a big baby. He been eating healthy at home but once he hangs out with his friend outside, he will tend to drink and eat very badly. We always tell him, health is very important for elder people like them. They should love themselves more,take good care of them, then they can do more with their lives without worrying sickness illness problem.
My mom is doing good. She attends dancing class with some other ladies every weekday morning. And then, she eats healthily, cut down red meat totally. She used to have joint pain problem, but now with the good compliance on Glucosamine and sufficent exercise, she actually looks good and feels good. I can't wait to go home and see my lovely mom.
I am very blessed to have my loving parents, parents in law and god parents in my life. I just wish they are healthy, having a simple, happy life. I just wish to spend as much as time possible with them. I love to hang out with elderly people, they are just loving and caring.
Well, I really need to talk to my dad this weekend. Or else, I wont bring home any golf balls and golf glove for him! He better start behaving good!!!
Look at my HAIR!
Ok, don't get me wrong by looking at the title. It is just a fantastic online game that I want to tell you all. I bet you all know about VO5 this popular brand. They are now having this online game called Extreme Style by VO5Ultimate Flirting Championship.

Victory Hair is the main thing you should care about in the game. So what is victory hair? It is the chemistry between a guy and a girl. Imagine a pretty girl meets a good looking guy in a pub and they have a drink and little dance together. You know how girls love to play with their hair, fingers run through it when they are with someone attractive. And that is the Victory Hair we talk about here, kind of messed up yet sexy look hairstyle.

I played the game a little while ago and it is interesting and funny. You will be grouped with another two participants to start the game. When you play the judge role, you can choose certain question to ask and the others will have to answer. Then you choose the favourite answer from either one of them. Those questions are naughty, flirtatious. You will have fun.

If you like the game please grab the widget and put in your blog so others would know about this funny online game.

The main reason why I keep my hair that long is because of John. He always warns me not to cut them short, trimming is ok but not cutting off real short. But of course, I myself also enjoy keeping long hair as I can do different styling with my hair.
Lately, I dyed my hair into darker brown color at home because my hair color turned into real unhealthy yucky reddish orangie. After the hair dying, I actually thought of changing my hair style, maybe cutting it shorter, I mean like at lest 6 inches shorter. John gave me a big no no.
Well, all this while, I been telling my girl friends that I will CHOP off my hair after I give birth my first baby. I have no plan for any baby yet at this moment but I think that might be a good time to have my hair cut, short like Katie Holmes's hair.
John said that is not going to happen until I turn 50! haha~ I keep long hair for at least 8 years, I know there is a day, I will cut them short. But, When?!
I'll Be Back!
We watched tons of hollywood movies and there are many popular lines that we just love to use in our lives. If you have to pick a popular hollywood movie line to use when you are seeing someone you interested in a pub, what is yours will be?

Mine one will be simple and significant. Simply "I'll be back!" Yeah! You can actually say that with the strong accent like Arnold Schwarzenegger did in The Terminator. If you were a guy, you throw this line to your girl, turn around and come back with her favourite drink. She will be thrilled! If you were a girl, say this line softly in the flirtatious way, turn around disappear yourself for minutes and come back with a sexy diamond pouty lips and Victory Hair.

It is very important what line you pick up when you flirt with someone. Want to be an expert? Go play the
Extreme Style by Vo5 Ultimate Flirting Championship game.
