Fun Foodie Friday~!

Image
Aaaahhh, Friday and Saturday April 9 and 10 were two glorious days~ Andrew and I had so much fun! Things have been getting busier for me as the semester winds down and my trip to Japan looms closer. Last week, though, was rather calm and I welcomed it. I spent some quality time with Andrew, applied for a Passport (I hope my application goes through!), and my classes weren't too bad. :)

Friday was wonderful-- Andrew and I were able to spend the whole day together and it was such a blast! :D That morning was interesting because we went to a different (and sketchier) part of town so I could submit my passport application and take pictures at a post office. There is only one post office around here that does walk-in applications and pictures so we braved it and went there. It wasn't a bad experience at all! I had an issue concerning IDs, so hopefully I will still be able to get my passport.

After the whole application process was done, Andrew and I went to try Genova Bakery, a bake…

My Bowls!

Image
Yep everyone, those are my four finished bowls! :D The one with the hearts is for Andrew, and I was so happy to give it to him last night! Yay! :D He loves it and I can't wait to hear if he used it for breakfast this morning lol~ The one with the kanji in the bottom (which means "hope") is a ramen bowl for my Dad, because he really wanted one. I plan to give it to him when I go home at the end of the semester (which is way too sad to think about....sigh), so I hope he likes it! The one underneath Dads is for me, a little rice bowl hehe. And the one under Andrews was for Professor Albala, http://kenalbala.blogspot.com/, my favorite professor who helped me get my grant for Japan! He was excited to get the bowl and I hope he enjoys using it! :) Now, I have tons of random cups and mugs I am glazing. I am really excited about them and I can't wait to give them to more people! :D

A Wonderful Revisit-- Le Kims!

The weather here in Stockton has certainly been interesting. A few weeks ago, the days were hot and vibrant with green grass and blooming flowers. Then, last week the weather took a turn for the worse and rain was falling almost every day, and the days were cold and slate-grey. Not exactly the most cheerful Spring week, let me tell you.



However, this post and the pictures hearken back to the week where every day was a bouquet of sunshine and smiles.



This particular Friday dawned bright and cheerful; Andrew took me out to our first favorite place, Le Kims! This restaurant is really special to us; we used to go all the time when we first dating and have loved it ever since. :) It was our haunt when the nights were cold and rainy~ We noticed we hadn't gone in a while, so we decided to go and get some good, homey Veitnamese eats! :)




I got new glasses! The frames are purple and very cute~ I love this picture; it's so sweet! Of course we had to take pictures together at lunch, it was …

My 20th Birthday~!

Image
Gahhhhhh, I can't believe I hadn't posted this yet!!! This past week has been INSANE. I had some hard stuff to deal with, such as the death of a family friend and frustating class scheduling. College is never easy, and in the words of my wonderful father-- "Living on your own is tough!"
I couldn't have said it better myself, Dad. :)
However, a lot of fun was had by me and Andrew this holiday weekend. :) I am glad that we are settling back into our usual routine this week-- I actually am a "routine" kind of person, and I really don't like change. I can't believe it's April already...I am going to Japan next month!

Now, without further ado, here is what I did for my 20th birthday in January! Stay tuned for more catch-up posts to follow! :)
