What is Father’s Day? What is this day about? Honestly, to me, it’s just another ordinary Sunday. I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a proper Father’s Day even with my step-father. I guess we just never been the traditional type but then what’s true definition of traditional? In the…

Off to a Painful Start


Happy Chinese New Year!!! Well, technically, it’s still eve here in the U.S.. In China, it’s Chinese New Year. This year is the year of the goat and I was born in the year of goat. As I mentioned in previous posts, my mom said I’m bound to be unlucky this year and guess what,…

Merry Christmas!

2 Weeks ’til Christmas, 3 Weeks ’til New Year
