RECAP: Holidays with family and friends

Family: Karaoke w/cousins, Dim Sum, Temple for my grandpa, and exchanges w/cousins.

You know I always have a great time with you all. Like my little sisters and brothers, you can be annoying at times but you all are the best. I wouldn’t want to spend the holidays with anyone but our family. It’s funny how we find comfort with each other in a time like this. It’s unspoken. I cherish and appreciate everyone so much,  I honestly don’t know how sane I would be without you all.

Thanks for the Toms, Leggings, Recipe for Happiness decor, cookie dough, and homemade hot chocolate.

I also found out that my grandpa had a journal where he writes his thoughts and poems. I can’t really decipher it because .. I can’t read Vietnamese that well but I will happen. I knew my grandpa was an artist but this is mind blowing to me.


I found out that my brother got on a car accident on xmas. I felt devastated. He called me with his voice shaken up and I was so confused. All he said was that he t-boned someone and he’s in the emergency room and he’ll call me back later. *click*. I was thinking. Great just fucking great. When it’s raining, it fucking pours. I just couldn’t take that much pain at once you know. Well at the end of the day thank goodness he was alright because I wouldn’t know what to do if two people in my life got hurt in the same month. I just couldn’t.


Friends: Amy & Nicole

Sorry for celebrating your birthday so late Amy because of everything that has happened. I hope you like the gifts we got you 😀 and The Old Spaghetti Factory was a great choice for your birthday dinner. My Orange Italian Cream Soda was the highlight of meal haha! I hope you like the gifts we gave you! It was difficult picking out presents but we managed.

Our xmas exchange was small this year. In means of people. Which I am okay with. Not saying that we’re no longer friends but people change and we all go our separate ways…  in a sense of lifestyle and priorities. I think Nicole and I overloaded Amy with oversize comfy sweaters though ahaa. But thank you for my Converse, Toms, and accessories!

DTF (Downtown Fullerton for non oc natives haha) for our end of the night celebration was perfect. I think we were planning to go to Florentines but I am so glad we went to Zings just because we heard “good” music playing outside. It was a night that I needed. I love spending time with family and all but they are not of age yet haha. Besides the amount of guys who tried to dance with us, people who stepped on my new shoes, and the smell of everyone’s bo, it was a fun night with the right music with the right people (: .

I don’t think you both realize that I appreciate this time so much. I really needed it. I needed a time to be away from my family and away from my life to just have a little fun. I want to feel normal again..  ever since what happened. It’s been hard. Being in LA during winter break with my roommates and friends gone is not cutting it. Usually I don’t mind it.. but silence for too long gets me thinking way too much ya know. I love you all and thank you for everything.
