Pink. Green. Orange. Yellow. White. Chocolate. Coffee. They all taste delicious yet I swear I will get cavities. I'm glad I'm doing the buffet final with Serena. I couldn't have asked for a better partner. We work so well together!
     Patty and I went out to Chipotle's for lunch today. It was so nice. I haven't went out for lunch in a long time. Plus she treated me out (for some reason... lol). Thank you Patty! I owe you one homie. I love lunching with Patty. If only I didn't have a curfew, then I'd stay Forever!
     Pizza night was pretty fun. The original plus Eugene, Elizabeth and David. We took so many pictures that I bet the other customers were like "WTF! STFU!" Lol. So after, we went to Darren's, then went to Costco for gas, then back to Darren's where they were planning on what to make a video of. I coudn't stay for long. Plus I was falling asleep so I went home and showered. I'm about to go to bed now. It's only 11 and I'm crashing!

     This past weekend was one of the busiest for me. I woke up early Saturday morning and immediately began to move things out of my room to downstairs.
    Sunday, eat Pho with family then help my sister move all of her stuff out. Then we took apart my bed and everything too. Pure emptiness in my room. How odd. The carpet cleaner guy came and cleaned. My family then went to this jump house place called "Pump it up" for my cousin's birthday. I did one round of all the obstacles. How embarrassing though, there were 2 guys that I knew who works there. LOL.
     When we came home, I helped my dad out a bit by putting some things back into the room. Eventually when the carpets dried, I put more things back.
     Today, I took Darren and Eugene to De Anza. Nothing else significant at school..
     Our days are shallow here at PCI. I shall forever treasure the moments I spend in class.
     Sorry, just random thoughts in my mind that probably doesn't make sense. Too much to do tonight! I gotta start with French Hw...

     Since I was sick, I was too lazy to blog, even though I had all the time in the world...
     So on Tuesday, I did... Absolutely. N.O.T.H.I.N.G; Nothing. Okay okay, maybe saying "Nothing" might be a little too strong... I didn't really do absolutely nothing. I did something; like surf the net, worked on my portfolio, stalked people on Facebook, comment on things on Facebook, watched a crapload of CSI (LV/NY), drank so much tea that my salivary glands were starting to secrete tea... Oh! and also go to "Pizza night", instead, we went to iHop for their National Free Pancake Day. All I got were the Free Pancakes and hot tea, sadly I only finished 2 of the 3 pancakes, but thanks to Vince, he finished it for me! Along with his 5 other pancakes, eggs and bacon thingy... The guys, Darren, Alan, and Vince, were all competeting to see who could finish the fastest. Guess who won? Yup, the one and only FATASS; Darren.
     After our meal, we headed back to Darren's for a little, then all went our seperate ways. I didn't really do much at home afterwards. I talked to Blake before I went to bed (of course) and slept.
     This morning, when I got to school, I found Patty in the parking lot and we walked to class together. She filled me in on EVERYTHING that I missed out on. You gotta love Patty. Lol. In class, I basically stayed awake the whole time. I couldn't fall asleep at all! Oh well, I learned about Venus though. I wish I could stay awake like that. I guess 11 hours of sleep might do you in. Right?
     After school, I went to Blake's and made myself a grilled cheese sandwhich. It was absolutely delicious! We then finished the last episode of HIMYM S3. He made me another grilled cheese (with turkey) then we departed.
     School was pretty productive. I got everything ready for tomorrow's final. It is now a test of zen mixed with simplicity and elegance. Oxymoron much? I told Chef that my interview for Left Bank is tomorrow so he made some calls to put in a good word for you. I guess that's what happens when you have a chef with hook ups right? I didn't find it neccesary because I think I'd do well, but he did it on his impulse. I think Nancy was a bit disastisfied by that because she can't really get any hookups to. C'est la vie. She's getting better though, she actually cleaned all of her own dishes. Jasmine was also in class, but left early of course... I'm so ready for this final and my interview. No stress!
     Anyways, not much to do now. I found myself a hairstylist! The one, the only, TJ! I can't wait to see the wonders he can do to make shorthair beautiful.
     I guess that's all I have to say for now... Can't wait for tomorrow!

Salvia...

02/16/2010

     Sometimes I think my friends do Salvia... But that's a story for later on.
     Today at PCI, we had a career fair. I was so nervous but I think I did pretty well. I had an interview from a guy who owns and runs Morroco. It's a restaurant but I don't really want to do a restaurant. I also got the head chef of Left Bank to request me. He said he'll put me at the top of the list! It's all thanks to Chef Alex of course, he has all the hookups and stuff.
     In class, we began a new section; Advance Plated Desserts. I'm so excited! We're working with passionfruit and stuff like that. Exciting stuff. We had so much downtime that we made crepes and french toast. Yum!
     I stayed a bit after to work on croissants as usual. I made two doughs so tomorrow I'll be able to work on it and form it and stuff.
     Then I went to pizza night. I was so drained! It was fun though, I kept dropping my pizza. Lol. Fail. Afterwards, we all went to Darren's house where Darren, Alan, Vince and Perry made random videos. This is the part where I think they're on salvia. They were screaming and Meowing like crazyy! Anyways... I can't really say much, it was fun for the most part, but someone went a little too far...
     Anyways, I got home around 10ish and I have a house full of people! WTF! No wonder my mom didn't call me... Anyways, I have to finish my hw, then probably go to bed. So exhausted and drained...
     No deep thoughts for the night. Sorry!

     Well just for De Anza... I finally got my resume finished, I just need to get retouched and everything so it's perfect. In class, we finished our Caramel-Pear Cake and our Prentantines. Chef also demo'd pulled sugar and he made a sugar piece for one of the Chef's daughter's 15th birthday. It was effin` amazing! I definately want to try a hand in pulled sugar. It's something worth knowing how to do.
     After class, Serena and I stayed for a bit. I made a new Caramel only cake using my beef gelatin and OMG the caramel mousse is to DIE for! Serena and I talked and stuff. I love talking to Serena, I look up to her so much, she helps me so much in class and I really appreciate it.
     After going home, I then made plans with Darren and Wilson and we ended up playing Rockband without Kenny... But Alex Tu came. He's really funny at drums and singing. Then we just talked for about half and hour and then I went home.
     I miss those moments in life when I spend time with the Guys. No matter how much they drive me friken insane, I love them to death and I miss them so much, except Darren, I see him all the time! I cherish those moments that I once took for granted.

     I woke up way too early today, but it was worth it. I met up with Darren, Alan, Perry and Jesse at Darren's place at 8 AM and we headed on the road about half an hour later. Once we got to the AT&T Park in SF for the Giants FanFest, we found parking and made our way in. There were lines of fans dedicated to this special event. Everything was free, so why not? Since we were 10 minutes early, we loitered around and took pictures. I'll steal them from Alan and Darren later. Hehe. Once the line started moving, we slowly blended in with everyone and before we knew it, we were in.
     The first thing we did was buy some garlic fries. Yum! Then we went onto the field, which was actually all dirt because of Motocross. After a while of messing around, we stuck around for an interview of Tim Lincecum. He's really good looking. I remember watching him start when I went to the Giants game with Darren, Wilson and Kenny.
     After, I got my FanFest paper signed by Jeremy Affeldt. I got so lucky! Here's proof!
Picture
     Yup, that guy, except he looked a lot nicer when he signed it. Lol. Apres, we loitered around some more. We found upper level clubhouses and we eventually found the bottom clubhouse where the locker rooms were at. First, we went to the home side where everything was roped off, then we went to the visitor's side where we were free to roam. The bathroom and showers were there and I got some free water in the physical therapy room from a water dispenser. Yesh! Good times. We just kept messing around after that.
     Eventually we decided to go to Darren's grandma's house. It's such a cozy house. Darren's grandma is so cute! We then decided to go to fisherman's wharf to get some chowder in breadbowls. Yum! Darren's food kinda attacked me a little while we were eating, a spoon somehow got into my bag too! WTF! Lol. Around 3, we made our way back to the car and went home. I fell asleep on the way home, I was DRAINED! We went back to Darren's place, where only Perry and I stayed for a bit. We talked and eventually all went our seperate ways.
     Now I'm at home, I just cleaned my sister's bathroom, it's so clean and cozy, I didn't want to leave! My room is now all messy and gross and stuff. I'm working on my multitasking with cleaning and watching The Office. It's getting so much better now! Anyways, back to work!

     Today was a good day, NAY, a great day! It started off at De Anza, I took my rightful spot next to Patty's car and gave her a call. I then switched over to her car and we decided to skip class, since she was sick and all. Patty then drove us somewhere asiany and we walked around outside, unfortunately, nothing was open and Patty was thirsty. That was when I spotted Starbucks across the street. We made our way over and I ordered a drink. The barista who took my order was pretty funny and cute. Our convo:

Barista: Hey welcome to Sturbucks!
Me: Hey, can I get a Cafee Mocha?
Barista: No :]
Me: Oh.. Well I want it anyways.
Barista: Ohh, I like you already!

     That was basically our convo, Patty was like, "OMG! He's so cute!" Haha.  I only have a coffee sleeve to remind me of this day. Funny funny, too bad I'm dating Blake! (I love you babe!) Patty and I stayed at Starbucks for a while just talking and stuff, then we decided to go back to her place and watch The Hangover while eating Top Ramen. Good day.
     PCI was alright today, we had final today, I messed up on my souffle the first time, but the second was ten times better. I got a 10/10! With plating, it was alright, 8/10? Lol.
     After class, I went over to Blake's for a little, we chatted about our day, then I left to go to Pizza Night. Fun day, we all were kind of tired but it was still good. Pizza night is definitely something I look forward to every week. It's the main point in the week where I meet up with the Darren, Alan, and everyone else and we just bond and tell jokes and stories. That's the moment we're just ourselves and we act like the usual obnoxious teens in the movies. I love pizza night.
     So, when I got home, I began to blog, then I got a random phone call from a restricted number. At first I didn't recognize the voice, but then it was the guy from Starbucks! LOL! Jkjk, noo it wasn't, but guess who it was?
     Axell. Super random right? He apologized for everything that happened and I was kinda like "Why are you apologizing? We're both at fault here". In the end, we had an hour long convo talking about everything that's happened and just reminiscing about the past. Oh how I missed those times we shared. Axell and I have been through a lot and I thought that if we cut connections, everything will be better, unfortunately, that isn't the case. I've truly missed him and I'm glad that of all days, he chose today to call me. Today is quite an amazing day, I knew from the beginning that it was going to be spectacular, and spectacular it has been. Just a coffee sleeve to remind me of this day.

     Geoff and Blake are over right now playing Katamari with my brothers... LOL!! I gotta recap on my day yesterday, but quickly!!!
     First day of De Anza! I found Patty and we went to Astro4 together. I found Jimmy and he sat close to us also, he barely made it in class! I'm kinda excited and nervous for Astro. It's in the planatarium, which is really neat. French was interesting. It seems as if this French2 class is more enthusiastic and everything. There's a guy that sits in front of me, kinda, and he TOTALLY reminds me of Dwight from The Office. Not gonna lie. He kinda looks like Dwight too and he keeps speaking out in class when he's not supposed to. So annoying.. But yea.
     After class, I met up with Patty and we decided to go to Blake's pad. She wanted to meet Blake. Em and Sky where there, we all just chilled there. Sky aired out Kira's nasty smelling room with burnt sage. It's supposed to be cleansing or something like that. But yea, we all just chilled and eveything. Patty was really quiet! Lol.
     Around 12ish, Patty went home and Blake went with me to school. We started on our lady fingers and we also made the crust for our cheese cake. After class, Blake picked me up and we went back to his place. I ended up staying longer than expected. We watched Taking Pelham 123, pretty good movie, then Em came and we all just chilled and talked and stuff. Around 9ish, I went home and eventually I fell asleep.
      Today, De Anza again, I met up with Patty but she needed to buy something so we were kinda late to Astro4, French was alright. After class, I went over to Blake's. Sky and Em were there too. Blake made us all pancakes! Yum! we all just chilled like always and talked and stuff. Around 12ish, Blake went with me to school again. This time, we finished out Charlotte Russe cake, using the lady fingers, and we also finished our cheese cake.
     After class, chef let us stay a little longer to practice and stuff. Blake came in and helped us wash dishes. Thanks babe! Lol. After, we decided to meet up with the guys at pizza night; Darren,  Perry, Vince, Alex Nguyen, David, Vincent Do, Alan, and Elizabeth were all there. Sorry guys, I had to leave early because I had a lot to get done with. After pizza, we went to Karate where everyone met Blake. Lol, especially Allan Dale. I also gave them 2 cakes. We stayed there for quite a long while.
     After that, we went over to Kim's so I could pick up my french video. Kim and Blake started conversing and kinda arguing about political views and stuff. I was kinda scared that they were gonna start fighting or something! Anyways, we stayed for a good while, until I had to leave to go to Wilson Yu's place to pick up my AA jacket. We all talked, I heard some stuff about band.... Yea...
     So anyways, we're back at home. It's 11 right now and Geoff is stuck on this game. It's pretty funny. Anyways, I'm kinda getting sleepy, I'll kick them both out when this round is over. Hehe. Anyways, BYE!
