I don't watch a lot of TVs, very rarely a TV show is able to grab my attention. Well, I have never watched a single episode of "24". Last night I watched it for the first time, only because I heard on the radio that the first lady was going to be attacked, all I can is "Wow, it was very good". I shall continue next Monday.

10 Things You Want, but Don't Need

1) A MacBook Pro.
2) A Toyota Highlander Hybird.
3) An Ipod.

Wow, I thought this question would have been so easy to answer, but nope, took me a while just to come up with three answers.

To my dismay

Yesterday she was walking, today she is climbing all over the sofa. What is she going to do next? I don't remember JE being this active at her age.

Free ride is over
Amber is almost 16-months old and she was not walking. I was not too worried. If she's 18-month and not walking, then I would be worried and send her to physical therapy. In fact I was pretty happy with all the non-walking, that meant I didn't have to chase after her every second of her waking moment.

But time has changed, let me present you her taking some of her first longer steps, meaning walking from one end of the room to the other. The picture is not very good, as I had to take it while she was walking all over the places

Oh yeah!
Our tax, our tax is done. It's good to have a house and kids, because refunds are coming our way.

*doing the happy dance*

The question right now, what should we spend on with our refund? A second car or put all the money in saving?

My kids are so cute

Where is Amber?

Valentines come early
As v-day gifts, John and I went out this afternoon and got a tatoo each. Crazy huh? We have been wanting to have a tatoo for a while, finally John initiated it. Found a place, got an appointment, and the rest is history.

Mine is on my back. John's tiger is so detailed, it took the guy two hours to do it.

Was it painful? Well, it only really hurt when he was doing the outlines, after that I didn't feel much. I think he did a really good job, especailly on hubby's tiger.

Friday Five
1. What is your favorite specialty restaurant (Italian, Mexican, Thai, etc.)?
Japanese is on top of my list, then Thai, Indian, Mexican, and Italian.

2. What do you order to eat there?
Sushi and more sushi.

3. What is your favorite specialty food or dish to cook?

4. If you could travel to the home country of your favorite specialty food, what would you do there?
Be a total tourist in Japan, eat all the local food. Then again visiting Japan is really expensive. Don't think we will go, and it isn't really on top of my list a place to visit.

5. What is your worst experience with a specialty food restaurant?
I'm usually stick with three Japanese restaurants I know that the sushi are fresh and services are excellent. So so far I haven't had any bad experiences.

I'm just thinking
Thank Godness that JE's school still holds up to traditions. They celebrated both Thanksgiving and Christmas last year. I would be very unhappy if they didn't, like the rest of this country has become, when you can't say or write the word Christmas anymore. And they wonder why the other countries call us the devil? What's happening to this country?

My parents dropped everything back in their mother country, starting from scratch and just so that we can have a better life. But is it a better life when the spirit has gone downhill? Now I look back at Shanghai, the city I was born. Their life qualities are not any different from us, if not better. I know my parents, especailly my dad will never live in China again, even though they will have a much easier and better life. I know I probably can't either, I can't stand the 10 gazillion smokers.

John will probably ask "How about Australia?"

I don't know if I can live in a place that drive the wrong way and speak funny. And most of all they don't even have coffee creamer! hah
