Food and Stuff

I lost a total of 8 lbs since my last post! The app, MyFitnessPal, has helped me count calories and keep track of what I've been eating so far.  If you're looking to lose weight the lazy way (not exercising) download the app! I'm gonna use my livingsocial gym deal in Feb.  

lol, I ate this before starting my diet.  I bought a google offer to Artichoke Pizza in NYC.  OMG, it's so good but I read that one slice is like 1300 calories :( I had two that night and made sure to walk a few miles lol.  

One of my favorite foods in the whole world.. lasagna! I used Mrs. Dreamfields low carb lasagna noodles to offset the calories and I also mixed spinach with the ricotta cheese to make it some what healthy.  
I told my mom I'm on a diet and she went out to get a slice of cake for me -.- 

        I saw a review on the travalo on youtube and immediately ordered one off of ebay for a few dollars.  I love it! 

The bottom has a cool pump 

I can bring it on my trip to Vietnam that's coming up! :)   The travalo holds enough for 60 spritzes.  And I haven't experienced any spillage yet! It's a great buy if you travel often.  

Pazuzu looking worried lol 

I usually eat a whole box in one sitting but I managed to eat two sticks once a day lol.  

Made curry 

I got this at Mitsuwa. Ugh. The taste is good but consistency is so weird. It's like eating an eye ball or something.  

My new gaming mouse :D!!!! I was looking for a new mouse since my old one kept squeaking every time I spammed clicks lol.  Based on the reviews, I ordered the Logitech g9x off of So far so good.  I really like how I can control the sensitivity and the feel of the mouse.   

It came with weights. It's serious business lol.  

Here is Lily being bad/silly.  

We ordered pizza from Singa's

Salad from Trader Joes.  

Roasted broccoli!! Instead of steaming or frying broccoli, try roasting them instead. I drizzled oil, sea salt, and ground pepper and roasted them at 450 degrees for 10-15 minutes. And this is coming from a girl who didn't really enjoy eating them.  

I'm gonna be a little more busy from now since I'm gonna be a bridesmaid :)! My two very close friends are engaged! I'm extremely happy and also very surprised that it's happening lol. I did not expect that at all but I'm so happy for them and wish them the best.  I can't wait to help plan the bachelorette party >:) 
It also gives me an incentive to lose even more weight :P

Happy holidays! I should make a habit of updating my blog at least once a week :/.  

So far, I've been spending a lot to get 2k points (lol no not really...Christmas made my wallet sad), studying, and slowly cleaning my rooms.  Chris and I started to plan for our upcoming trip to Vietnam!! I'm also losing weight cuz I wanna look good in pics and so people in Vietnam won't talk shit about me lol.  So far, I lost a few pounds by cutting out snapple/soda ( blah my work provides free drinks) and eating clean.  I have a living social deal to a gym that's close to my work/house so I'll start going once the New Years resolution noobs stop going which should be in Feb.  

Here are the pics: 

I'm gonna stop ordering this from Mitsuwa lol 

onigiri :)  I love spicy tuna 

My friend had his"surprise" birthday dinner at Tops in Newark lol.   I ordered the short rib burger and was amazing!! The burger was monstrous and absolutely delicious.  Even the fries were amazing.  I got mad at Chris cause he offered my fries to our friend but at the end it was a good decision.  He's only looking out for my health :)  

Chris and I made tikki masala! I think he used an allrecipe's recipe.  We ate it with some naan bread which Pazuzu (that's what Chris thinks..I think it was Lily) shredded.  It was so good that we served it at Chris's Christmas party. 

Chris's living room filled with presents!! 

Chris got me a long champ purse! I never really wanted one cuz all the Korean girls at Rutgers would wear them around campus but I really wanted one this year for some reason.  I'm glad he surprised me with it! I love my bag so much. It fits so much and the bag is really light and durable.  I want to bring it to Vietnam but I'm afraid a dude on a motorbike might steal it lol.  

Chris's brother got Chris tickets to the Giants game! 
Best gift ever :) and he brought me! We got Blimpies before the game and Chris managed to sneak two subs in lol. 

Giants vs. Eagles  

Nose bleed section 

The game was so exciting and the crowd was great.  It was a nice treat to watch the Eagles played so badly LOL.  Too bad the Giants didn't make it to the playoffs but oh well...there's next year when the Superbowl will be at Met life Stadium :)

It took us forever to look for our car cause we left on the other side of the stadium ...-.- lol.  After the game we ate at Tops :) I got a chicken pesto sandwich which was really really good.  I wanna go back and try all the burgers. But I can't do that cause I'm on a diet lol.   

I spent NYE with Chris and  his family 

Bella, Chris's uncle's dog 

Riry being an asshole with her toys. She's always hogging the toy and growling 

It's Korean tradition to eat dduk gook on New Year.  My mom makes the best dduk gook. 

Here's Pazuzu getting high from cat nip. I love him so much.  

The McRib lol.  I know it's made out of plastic but it was tasty. 

Rollin' with Chris :)

Pho Tai 

We went back to his place to make avocado shakes yum yum yum 

I'm trying to eat clean so I made..

caprese! I love caprese so much.  

And here are pictures of big B :)

December 2012

I can't believe Christmas is almost next week! While I hate spending money on anything... I found out about this awesome credit card deal that will make Christmas shopping less painful.   Chase is having a promotion with its Southwest credit card so if you spend 2k in three months, 50k points are automatically credited to you! So that means either 500 in gift cards or two free round trip tickets :).  Chris and I are going to Los Angeles with our friends in July! Since our friend works for some travel company, she was able to get a discounted hotel rate!! Right now with all the people that might go, I probably have to pay 50 dollars for 4 nights :) Slickdeals indeed. 

My mom bought me this BB cream.  I love the consistency and color of it! I haven't been using it daily so I can't vouch for its whitening benefits.  

I love getting snacks from Mitsuwa.  

Here's Pazuzu trying to eat my Koala cookie.  

Lily trying to swipe it...

I didn't feed it to Pazuzu :D 

I've been looking for green tea kit kats at Mitsuwa for two years now!! Kit kats were finally in stock! 

Cute photo deco app 
deco tapes that I bought off of ebay for 6 dollars 

Back seam and mock garter stockings that I got on sale 

I got a new eyelash curler, nars blush, and blotting papers for 25 :D. I had a coupon for 15 off of 50 and used two gift cards that I got for free! So in total I had 25 credit off of 50! 

So on Thursday (12/13) I had my company Christmas dinner at my boss's son's restaurant. :D

We all took the ferry to get to NYC.  

Ice skating in front of his restaurant...


cocktail samplers

red wine which wasn't gross 


brussel sprouts 

Porter house for two. I was going to split this with my supervisor but she ended up leaving cause she had a pretty bad migraine. I felt pretty guilty eating it haha.  

so cute!

peanut butter hot coco! I also got a cheesecake but my phone died on me before I was able to take a picture 

Chris and I ate at Soo Petite Chow after shopping for hours at the mall. I hope we spend 2k very soon! 

Turnip cakes

soup dumplings! 

chicken with garlic sauce

I got these specialty kit kats.  I couldn't find the green tea kit kat bars. :(   

I got this really cute Rilakkuma make up case a few days ago. 

Vietnam is in 3 months :)
LA is 4 months after that.
