"A guy will fall in love with a girl, hoping she stay the same.
But she will always change.

A girl will fall in love with a guy, hoping he will change.
But he always stay the same. "

Back to the bay! Starting a new job here on March 17! I am scared and excited.


I'm thinking of traveling through the Bay this summer. Is there anything there? Last time I went I saw some seals fight at Peir 22. What's the best place to see? I don't wanna go and look at a bridge or that flowery steps.

I've just had a tetanus shot so I'm disease free. Why does my arm gets sore after a shot?

I will be driving back to California from Florida this Saturday with my bf. I am so nervous and excited. My new job will be challenging. I am going to miss my bf so much. He won't be able to move to California for 6 months.
I will definitely miss Florida. I met some wonderful people here, and experienced what it is like to live in an area where there is only mostly white people.  -crybye

talking about white people and racism.

this week so far i have experienced some racism.... yup, thats right. in peaceful canada there are some white people drinking that haterade.
as soon as i was leaving my office building and on the front steps of the entrance. some white elder lady was walking by glaring at me. she started walking behind me speaking mad gibberish loudly.
and then she walked up right next to me and as like, "what are you?! filipino? chinese? etc." and she kept popping off on me and saying offensive crazy racist sh1t about asians.
and then i told her to fvck off and walked into a coffee shop.
she stood outside glaring at me and walked off.

i was like..... wtf.....

and then last night, i had my viet lessons with my vietnamese tutor. we usually go to quiet late coffee houses for our session.
but instead this time we went to a billards pool pub cause i felt like a few drinks and mix it up. make the lesson feel more easy.
the booth table beside us was talkin very loudly making fun of the vietnamese language. being very offensive.
my tutor is more new in canada so she had no idea they were being offensive. but i was really frocking hurt and pissed off.
i just stopped the lesson and asked the server i can pay and leave right away. the server asked what was up? and i told her straight. the people next to us are being overly offensive. 
the server also got really pissed off and moved them to another spot. so my tutor and i continued our lesson that night.
it was chill, my vietnamese i feel is getting stronger but theres still sooooo much to learn and improve. my accent and pronouncing is improving too, but i'm having a really difficult time getting rid of my viet kieu accent some what. the nặng tone accent, i don't apply enough when i speak or interpret well enough listening. even listening to a word and spelling it out seems difficult sometimes, but i'm getting better.

We're seated next to the entrance.
Some random old white lady leaving and then stopped.
Looked and glared at us.
Then shake her head. Wtf

And then some random dude came up to us while my friend was smoking. And asked if we can hook him up with drugs.

You look me in the eyes and say it to my face,
“Stupid, Ugly” and other nasty names.

I take the abuse and no one knows but me.
If I told my friends about you, they’d tell me to leave.

But I need you by my side.
Promise me you'll change, don't make me cry.

I wipe the glass and now things are clearer.
I will change who you are, the man in the mirror.

WINGS

blink once, blink twice
like wings on a clock, time really flies
seems like yesterday, he came into my life
today is his birthday and he's already 5

should've stopped to smell the roses
but the chance has come and gone
Didn't even get to tell her
How much i love you mom

all this money, i would trade it for the years
i would've popped the question and you'd still be here
now there's no wedding gown, no ring
there's no you.... just a clock with wings

MISSING YOU

when you broke my heart and the only cure was time
i cried so many nights,
until i erased you from my mind

now im doing fine, doing well without you
but i still miss your smile and i still think about you

i remember your favorite number, food and color
when nobody's listening, i pretend we're still lovers

sometimes the wind blows and i swear i smell your scent
maybe my mind is playing tricks and its all in my head

when you read this letter, just know i'm doing better
and i really did mean it when i said forever and ever...

I usually go on haivl.com for stupid pics in vietnamese.
Always improve upon reading in vietnamese and the pictures help too.

Hanging out with a friend last night, she laughed hard when i told her that i check out haivl.com.

Of couse, for haivl.com, "hài" as in comedy.
But she told me "vl" is a dirty vietnamese slang for sex. Like during intercourse before the guy cums, he pulls out to bust on her body.
Sounds like "vai lo" or something, sorry i didn't confirm with the spelling. i was too enlighten.
i need someone like Dat to confirm... lol

@sailor, i had the exact same discussion with Sang's cousin Vinh. he was complaining to me that they take soooo much tax from his paychecks and i just told him that it's a great problem to have.
if they were only taking $500 in taxes from your paycheck then that's a problem you don't want to have.

the more you make, the more they take.
i wish the government was able to take $10,000 in taxes from my paycheck :D

But i can't complain about a free ticket to Vietnam.

haha don't let her pay for the ticket brooooo
you know how vietnamese people scheme. if she pays for your flight, she automatically expects you to date her daughter. if you dont date her daughter, she will be offended.

Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: Sang17 on April 10, 2014, 10:16:37 AM
Hmmmm....
Shes cute and shes not that short, i think shes like 5'6. Shes into long boarding, and hipster fashion and she dreams of travelling of course....

I dunno, i'm not into online dating or match making. I'm not into that stuff. i really not. I like to go out on adventures instead and try to talk or romance. So this family business stuff, it feels like forced and not natural ya know.

Last time i was with her family was on Christmas Day.
My mom forced me to go with her, along with my best friend Tuan and his mom.
So both Tuan and i were there with our moms on Christmas day, drinking red wine and beer. Sitting with our moms watching the adults drink and sing karaoke.

I did small greetings and small talk here and there. but its in the environment of like the parents, the kids and their friends.... Everyone watching us and all. I can smile and behave, but vietnamese people watching us interact. It makes my pencil soft hahahha. The situation is a turn off. I don't feel the spark of interest.

I dunno... I don't really think about her and i just do my own thing i suppose. Shes too close with family and its something i'm more cautious because i represent the son of my mother and i have to behave more and can't be controlling and i have to treat her much better than a ordinary girl.

Theres another family's daughter that the mothers are trying to hook me up with too... but this girl i knew for like 26 years... So we have such a long history and we think of each other as brother and sister. My mom and some people suggest just do it, take it to the next level. But i have big fear of sex ruining our relationship. Shes my best friend. Even at the club, we were dancing. And she was grooving more up upon me, i couldn't do it... I don't see her that way... Maybe because sex is act of like submissiveness and dominate performance. And the idea of her involved with me like that way, i can't do it.

I hate this whole thing to be honest, its too much pressure. This stuff has been going on since i can remember in high school, but now its... More serious...
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: lalapaluza on April 10, 2014, 11:45:51 AM
OK, 5'6 is tall for VN girl. She just looks short in the pic.

Love is hard to come by so any chance you've got, you have to take it. Match making is not bad b/c their family background is already acceptable. Her closeness to her family maybe a problem. You want to be able to preserve your r/s with your family and not be absorbed into her family. She should not be selfish as to prevent you to have a r/s with your family. I see so much of this going on esp with VN families, it's really sad.

Ya know at the Christmas Party, my boy Tuan told me her mom called me son in law.
Tsk, its not her daughter. More particularly i feel like their mom is the manipulative type. So her influence i don't trust. But then again, i'm influenced by my mother as well... 

wow, that girl i mention i known for 26years.

She just texted me this lunch to ask if she can stay over my home with 3 of her friends this Saturday...

i broke up with her...

we still talk, but i just didn't feel the equilibrium in the relationship. I'm not even a controlling boyfriend, i will easily give her a week to herself. But when she makes plans with me, and keeps bailing last minute or somethign, i get really fcukin pissed off. So i ended it, cause i don't know if shes worth it.

I'm not a player though, but i'm really not. I don't two time or cheat. Even 4D knows so. Because i do want a real girlfriend that will be real to me. So, to my ex, its no stress, she a gorgeous girl and has plenty of dudes to provide her needs. lol i wonder if i'm just another number that was available for her bday and valentines day.

Shes a pisces too... Shes a dreamer...
I live in the real world.
So we live in 2 different worlds.

wrote a more traditional type of poem. its about people who prefer to be alone even though some people just want to love them. this person ends up being lonely and regrets it.


THORNS

A rose reaches for the skies
Nourished with love it grows
Thorns pierce without caution
Happier when left alone

The sun sets and darkness rises
It's pores absorb the lonely air
Wilting, fading, shedding
Regretful thorns fall in despair

Now frozen in time
Just a petrified shell
Preserved for eternity
As a classic tale to tell

ever wondered what it would be like if our parents never "made it"?

NOTHING BUT A DREAM

I'm hungry, thirsty and homeless
beaten down, laughed at, feeling hopeless
Came straight off the boat with, nothing but a dream
Can't find a job so I live off the streets
I weep and i cry but the tears won't feed my daughter
My honor for a dollar, some water would really calm her
She hasn't stopped crying ever since we lost her
My wife was thrown off the boat
when the pirates raped her and robbed her
We fled from Vietnam
just hoping for a chance
but we're not as lucky

HAPPY MOTHER NATURE DAY
from the seed on the ground to the monkeys on the treetops
the lions that roar and the colorful peacocks
that black cat in the alley chasing the mice
and soaring golden eagles swooping down from the skies

the sun scorches and the lake glimmers crystals
breezing on my back, the wind gently whistles
sitting underneath the wisest of trees
i contemplate life and what it really means

we are living bacterias swimming in a pool of organisms
one in an infinite trillion
yet there's no greater gift than the one that you've given
happy mother's day from all of your children

^your mom is so nice. My mom calls me to run her errands lol.

@Rite Aid drug store today.
Me: looking at hair accessories and for face cleanser.  I am totally engrossed in my shopping until I noticed this guy in the hair accessories aisle walking back and forth.  I am like maybe he needs stuff for his hair and went on shopping.  Well, he out of the blue asked me are you Filipino? Or Chinese? I was like I am Vietnamese and do I know you?!.  Then there was this ackward silence while I try to go to a different aisle to avoid him and he followed me! He then said "hi, em I didn't know you are Vietnamese but now that I know let's be friends because you are de thuong. ".  He was now babbling away in Vietnamese lol about how wanted to lam ban with me because I was de thuong and etc.  At this point I was so uncomfortable, I said I have a bf and he asked for my name, I said Donna and ran off. Omg, in the end I didn't get any hair accessories, I just got out of there lol.  At least I saved money! -worried

the best kind of fruit
 
Magnetic fields
pulling us in
we cannot resist
the original sin
 
closer, closer, even closer
i can feel your breath
my toes curl
as you breathe on my neck
 
the world stops......
..........
 
and our lips meet
for the very first time
this magical night
belongs to you and I

You gotta watch out for those type of guys.  There was a guy working at my sister's shop who just came over from VN and he was flirting with the women. Then he grabbed one of the women's butt. The woman text my sister that he grabbed her butt. My sister don't know what to do because he's a friend of a good friend who works there, plus he's married. I think my sister is trying to fire him currently.

Because SN's butt is big, people will have lots of reasons to grab it.

I dunno... Validate how beautiful your hair looks and ask if you're down for bbt or coffee.

ah, i got it.

"hey baby gurl, your hair looks so dazzling and LuSHious. You remind me of my favorite character in a japanese anime, Sailor Neptune. Oh my car gurl, yo, you look just like her!

                          money and religion
                     the vicious cycle repeats
                again and again and again and
               again. are we destined to repeat
           the mistakes that our ancestors made?
        or can we rise above and change our fate?
            let's break the cycle and write a new
               chapter in the history books. Our
                   children can learn from their
                           ancestors that we

People esp in this forum always talk about pho and bun bo hue with nice pics. A couple times I had a yen for them. I went to the restaurant for them but after a couple of bites, lose my appetite. I even got sick on the pho. Bun bo hue I ate two days ago, got indigestion from it.

Maybe they were just badly made. Now I'm sick of pho and bun bo hue.

last night i drove by a new restaurant called Chopstix "Oriental Cuisine". I was like cool, i'll try out this new Viet restaurant. I walk in and see 3 homeland filipina women and the first thing they say is "This is a filipino restaurant, do you still want to eat here?" ahhaha and i was like "yeah sure, surprise me with some flip food."
they cooked me curry pork with potatoes, carrots, red peppers and celery on rice. it was actually really good so i'll be trying the rest of their menu.


oh crap, i didnt even get to the point of my story. basically, Filipinos don't even use chopsticks nor are they oriental so that's why i was pleasantly surprised that it was a Flip restaurant.

my wife died from the H1N1 virus. this is dedicated to her.

MUSIC BOX

I had packed our memories inside a heart shaped box
threw away the key, never to be unlocked

but the box magically opens everytime I hear our song
so I submit to the music even though I know its wrong

I close my eyes and drift to a far away land....

On the highest mountain top, here we stand
Gaze into each other's eyes, you take me by the hand

Together we leap and freefall from the heavens
an angel on my shoulders, your wings spread into a crescent

It's been awhile just hold me tight....

Love always finds a way through distance and time,
through different dimensions, i just close my eyes

I've got to go now our song's coming to an end
Wait for me my love, until our song plays again.





.... it wasn't actually my wife, it was my coworker's wife. he told me his sad story yesterday so i tried to put myself in his shoes and how he must miss her so much.

I applied for a Public Health Nurse job.  If I get the job I would get a pay cut of 20-30 grands a year, not to mentioned my killer benefits of free health insurance will be gone.  But the stress level and the cliqueness and aggression of most of the people I work with is killing me.  What would you guys do?
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: Nghi4D on June 16, 2014, 10:18:38 AM
normally i would say happiness and health are priceless but 20-30k paycut is huge!!
if this current job really is making you feel unhealthy mentally then i honestly would encourage you to take the new job. no amount of money is worth sacrificing your well-being.

i made the same decision last month. they wanted me to move up and take a more leadership role for more money and i said no. i don't give a sh1t about office politics and where i stand in the chain. i decided to keep doing what im doing because i'm comfortable doing it and its easy work. the leadership role was really really stressful and i was working 6-7 days a week, 9-10 hours a day. not worth it. i'm so much happier now....
but i think theyre eying me because i'm underachieving at the office. they know i'm capable of much more but i don't want to work harder than i have to.
i feel the pressure so i'm currently looking for a new company.
to me, success is not monetary. some people say that but don't really mean it, i truly 100% in my heart believe that when i say it.
sorry for the rant but i feel ya SN.

I would stay at the current job because you wouldn't know if there will be the same amount of stress at the new job. Who knows, it might be more stress. What I would do is to try and deal with your stress at your current job, either by spa treatment, yoga, drinking or smoking pot. I prefer drinking beer to drown your sorrows.

Use the extra money to buy a car.

I believe you are right to go do what make you happy.  Many time more money can mean more stress.  I hope you find a job that you like.  I forgot to add, Public Health will give me regular hours.  I would have weekends, holidays off and a set schedule.  Right now I am working graveyard shift.  I work 11pm until 730 am! My schedule changes every week so, I am not even sure what night I am working or off if I did not write my schedule out.

Yeah, California women are like that. They are very stuck up. I believe it's because of too much competition in the big cities. Not very friendly at all. A California waitress yelled at me to wait in line, but I didn't even do anything and I was waiting in line. California women need to be whipped.

lately, all i think about is money. i feel evil and greedy for doing so.
but at the same time, sometimes you have to become the bad guy to protect the ones you love.
i'm doing this for myself and my future family.

i feel like Walter White from Breaking Bad. money money money is all that's on my mind. why does success make me feel so guilty? it really does make me sad that i'm unable to harness happiness. everytime i feel happy, i feel guilty for doing so because i know other people are struggling. im not sure what the psychology behind it is....
its probably because i feel i don't deserve it.

^I think money isn't per se a bad or good thing. It's a multiplier only. Meaning in the hand of a bad person it can do harm. In the hand of a good person it can do a lot of good. So, I don't think you should feel bad about thinking of money. Especialy not if you do it to help your family.

What is Bill Gates gonna do with his money once he's nearing the end of his life?

If I have all his money and I'm near death I would spend all of my money into building a space station. Then at the moment I die I would develop a capsule coffin and shoot myself into far into outerspace, kind of like Superman when he was a baby, except that I'm dead.

I wouldn't give my son all the money because he would waste it on wine and women. Better to have a son with good moral character than an asshole. I would just pay for his college and he'll be on his own, in one condition is that he'll have to buy me a car. Before I die, I would grab him by the shirt and say 'Son, your're son. Be a good person and buy me a car. Also avenge my death if I die."

I just got back from Italy, visited Rome, Florence and Venice.  Most of these cities are overrun with Indian and African street peddlers.  There were lots of old fat azz Americans from the Eastern states and stupid American teenagers who think that talking louder in English would help them overcome the language barrier with Italian speakers.  I'm so ashamed to be American that I just tell people I'm from Cambodia.

PERFECT WORLD

I could be homeless and living on the streets
with no roof over my head or a bed for me to sleep....
but in a perfect world,
you're all that I need.

In this war torn country people dying left and right
Bombs and missiles screaming through the night....
but in a perfect world,
I will hold you by my side.

Stricken with cancer, I've got minutes to live
I close my eyes and I slowly start to drift....
I'm in a perfect world now,
because I'm dying with your kiss.

i just figured out an obvious love hack. this one girl likes me because i told her not to like me. the best love is forbidden love. girls can't resist forbidden love.

wise men say that “you should never tell someone what NOT to do because they WILL do it”.
for example, if youre walking on a tight rope with someone and you tell them “don’t look down”, they will immediately look down.

So once I told her “youre not allowed to like me”, she immediately responds “but I like you” ahahaa
it's such an obvious trick but it worked really well.

nope... they tricked me.
typical...
they took me randomly to a hai phong family's house for dinner and drinks.

i met both daughters...
half white and half viet.
their father was a old Caucasian guy and passed away.
also, their mother has never ate banh' xeo in her life. wtf....

but i was surprised the daughters look 90% white.
like pretty white....
but they spoke really good vietnamese with northern accent.
i was amused.

Yeah, they seems really nice.
One is tall, and the other one has nice curvy body.

They have like brown-ish hair.
You know how asians have like smooth golden or milky skin.
hahahah, i couldn't help notice when i looked at her arm. Her fore arm was more hairy than mine lol. But thats ok, thats definitely the caucasian genes. Dunno if i'll ever see them again, i was only invited due to our parents.

Yeah, i have a nephew thats half german and half vietnamese. He's like 14 now and 5'10. Taller than me now. Kid eats soo much rice and pho :S
Unfortunately he can only speak like baby-ish viet.

I'm going to see what being blind feels like. I don't know how the blind manage. Pretty much everything that you can see is blank.  Like being locked in solitary confinement.

I've never read Tolstoy. He seems like a very eccentric guy.  The last novel that I read was Vanity Fair by  William Makepeace Thackeray while in high school. I failed the essay because I didn't finish the book and it was so long and boring.  The English teacher called me up to go out in the hallway to have a little talk. She said 'What the hell is this?, shaking my essay in my face.  I just looked at her lips moving because I have ADD (attention Disaster Disorder). I just told her I didn't finish the book because it was 1000 pages long and it was boring as hell.  Why couldn't I just choose White Fang by Jack London and read about wolves.


Butt..seems like a smart white girl could enjoy Tolstoy, like a lawyer or somebody. Just imagine reading Tolstoy together in the moonlight with the white girl. You caressing her smooth face and staring into her deep set eyes while you drag her towards you for a deep kiss.  You close your eyes and pucker up dreaming of a succulent kiss to come in the tantalizing night, she then knees you in the groin and throws the book at your face saying  'What the hell is this?  This isn't Tolstoy, you weak Asian thug. I'll let you know that I'm a lawyer and I can sue your azz buddy.'

You eyes begins to pop out and crying in pain.

I did a good deed for today.  I was working repairing a house when an old lady next door asked me to take her to the grocery store because her husband was in the hospital and she was alone.  I said OK I could take a little break.  So I threw her little walker in the back of my truck and drove her to the grocery store about 2 miles away. I dropped her off at the front entrance and waited outside in the parking lot until she comes out. She came out in one of those motorized cart with a bunch of groceries.  I loaded the groceries up and drove her home.

She offered to cook a meal for me with the groceries but I said that's fine I need to get back to work.  She then offered a bottled water.  I was hesitant at first but said OK because I don't want to keep turning down her offer. She then called her son on the phone and told him to thank me and asked me where he can get a bathroom sink.  I said uhhhhhhhh....Home Depot?

Since your mom's birthday is after valentines day, there should be plenty of chocolate leftover from Valentines Day.  I would say give her two boxes of chocolate that's half eaten.  Believe me your mom doesn't want you to spend money on her.  She wants you to save money for your college.

If you have to buy her something, buy her a diamond or a house.  Those things that have value.

I'm not sure why people doesn't domesticate a deer.  They are benign, easy to raise and gives a lot of meat. 

But if you want an exotic pet that bonds with you, maybe a pot belly pig.  People let them in the house and is potty trained.  They are actually very clean as well.  I wonder if they taste good.

School stuff.

So I'm suppose to text her today, but I still have not texted her. lol
I'm having second thoughts lately...

Not about rejection, just the whole friend's sister type of deal...
Never done so before in my life.

I guess i'll shoot her a text like right now~

If this is a major dilemma, then I'm assuming the brother is a close comrade of yours? Sometimes it depends on your friend though, and some guys seem not to care who dates their sister(s) at all.  Regardless, you could approach the situation with prudence and respect, and always play the diplomat at all times.  If you really like the girl, I think you should arrange a meeting with the brother to have the "talk". Good luck and keep us updated.   -cheers

Post by: Sang17 on April 14, 2015, 03:30:54 PM
Yeah, yesterday after work.
She texted me to chill together.

So I sharpen up just mediocre, cause its only a Monday evening.
I pick her up and we go cruising looking for a place to eat.
We were both pretty indecisive what to eat or where to eat.
But since we were hungry and downtown, we just ate @ a sushi place lol.

Yea, we had some sashimi and sushi rolls and Sapporo beer.
We just talked about our hobbies and just life. I guess downloading each other's persona or life experiences and all that jazz.

Apparently she played rugby in school and shes like into those 15km marathons and sports. I guess she has that homeboy aspect to her and she like to play Nintendo with the boys. Yet she has like her bubble gum girly attitude.

She went to japan to teach English and shes still doing whatever in school.
So I guess shes still struggling abit in the career field.

After, we both went to a mutual friend's house to play WiiU and smoke a J. She obviously became very outgoing and giggly and adorable I suppose.
I was playing Smash Bros against my friend Nhat, and she was constantly teasing and asking funny questions to Nhat's gf. She was pretty high, funny girl...
First time really hanging out and we are already hanging out with another couple in the circle. I was not really ready for that, but I'm this deep already hanging out, mind as well just enjoy it. 

Yeah, and then I took her home like a gentleman.
I didn't make any moves or anything, I just wanted to soak in her persona and get the feel hanging out with her.

And then I went to meet up with a few other friends at karaoke and sang some Vietnamese/American songs and have a few drinks. lol
When I talked to my friend later that night, the whole word already got out that I took my friend's sister out on a date.

And now I'm at work thinking about the whole situation.

Kind of hard to regulate who comes and goes and who to keep and who to kick out.  But you can't regulate another one's personality.  No matter how rotten they are, you can't change them by blocking them out. 

I believe in taking care of our own. Just like rioters, we have to slap them up side the head instead of condemning their action.

But good luck either way.

nghi, don't get old on us now. don't take trolls like caliT seriously. Treat him like a little rowdy puppy dog that hasn't been trained.

I was at a vineyard the other day. There was a puppy that was running around, looking for scraps, he came over to one table and took off with a big dog bone. Well, the bone happens to belong to a big husky who just stepped away for a while. The big dog was very mature about it, just calmly lied down and waited for its master to retrieve the bone for him.

said puppy belongs to the vineyard owner. A while later it came sauntering about eyeing the bone again. The big dog started to growl. The big dog's owner picked up the puppy. Its owner came over and was very upset at the husky owner and raised her voice not to pick him up. But when she saw the big dog, she changed her tone.

I was working on an electrical switch today when I got shocked, the switch was shorted with the ground cable or something.  I had an arm jerk reaction to let myself go of the switch.  Being shocked feels like holding on to a Dremel machine or vibrator.  I forgot to look at myself in the mirror to see if my hair looks like Einstein.

But I must reiterate that always be safe with electricity.  Also put on some hair gel or else you'll look ridiculous if you are shocked.

There was massive flooding all over Houston last night.  I hope @makeupgeek is alright.

But this is the usual in Houston.  We don't riot like some of the other places.

Even Dwight Howard got locked in the stadium with the fans after the game.

I won 700 bucks at Vegas on the slots machine and then lost 200 back.  :p

I won 700 bucks at Vegas on the slots machine and then lost 200 back.  :p

Nice, I bet that felt good nhe.

Nghi4D and I won $900 @ the slot machine in Vegas.
We celebrated by buying more liquor and shopping.

Its been awhile ha VR.
Sorry, been caught up with a room mate moving out, selling 2 houses (today I just sold one), home renos and just difficult business with friends.
With boys, girls and money is so much trouble you have no idea.

I swear, its like a divorce cashing out business with a friend lol.
But, the dust is settling and I'm financially doing ok, not great, but ok.
I wish it could have been better and gone further. But just like a marriage, you cannot control the income or expenses of others in business. In my case, business ends here.

Plus I work in the oil and gas industry so its not a good time right now for many of us. Many project got frozen and work is slowing and people slowly getting laid off here and there. I know it won't last forever, but for now I guess the partying ended the time being hahahah.
Cause man... Last year 2014, partied so much lol. No regrets, but that savings would have helped, so the consequences of my life style last year have finally caught up to me.

Even though I never fcuked anyone over, I have given people SO much.
Initially I felt, the more you give, the more you receive. Well the irony is I get fcuked over by other selfish greed by the amount I given. But that's the reality of the things ha. I'm a nice guy... There's no sympathy for nice guys in this world. Theres only hit and run and on to the next in the city. I don't know if these situation changed me for the better or worst, I'm learning more than ever about people and what meets the eyes or ears. Even though I've been through some bullsh1t, I don't hate these people. Cause I'm understanding of their life and what leads them to make these bold decisions. 

I'm so sheltered in life in terms of being fair. The world is not fair, the world is greedy as fcuk. Everyone feels like their values, their time and etc is more important than the next guy. So they're more entitled. And if the world is like this, if people feel the need that their time or values in their life are more important than others. The only way I can deal with it is finding people whose on your level with the same values. Now I kinda get it, initially I don't want that type of sh1t because I want my friends to be more authentic. I only found out that I'm more lonelier than expected after tons of bullsh1t. You scratch my back, I scratch your right? Nah, scratch my back and text me later when you need your back to be scratched lmao.
I can think myself on the losing end in life success, but if anything, I gained more vital knowledge and experience.

I know this was a hardcore rant and it sounds pretty negative.
Sorry but I learned a lot.
Probably the best thing I found out was the people giving me power to not let this bull sh1t get the best of me. Especially my four brothers....

I still have my house, my car, my job and my family is doing ok.
I'm still on the path figuring out the next step after the dust settles.
I'm thinking about making a different future investment, but i'll worry about that later.
My life, my opinion, my experiences.
So... Pretty much reset from this chapter in my life. 
Hope all you viets around the world rise above as well.

Is this what happens when you get a old Chinese guy to do renovation?...
After 3 years, this sink naturally gave up and cracked lol.
Laminate floor has to be changed to tiles flooring too, because the water damaged warped the laminate hahahaha.
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: gaden on June 02, 2015, 03:04:25 PM
Damn...looks like there's a 1000lb of dishes on there.  The sink can't hold that many dishes.
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: Sang17 on June 02, 2015, 03:11:48 PM
I talked to the guy who installed it. There should be a wire brace for the sink. Apparently he never installs the bracelet to the sink.
On all of his jobs... :S

A sink should hold up regardless, I have never ever seen this happen before.

I talked to my friend and shes gonna look at the flooring to change it from laminate to tile flooring for the kitchen. it doesn't make sense for the kitchen floor to be laminate as well.

Hopefully she gives me a good deal and helps me out.

Sorry for another unnecessary rant.
:P

Hope all is good in the hood Gaden. lol
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: gaden on June 02, 2015, 03:22:38 PM
Probably just suck up the water and blow dry it.  The laminate might still be good.  Or else just wait until it bubbles up then repair the bubbled part.

Post by: Olive Juice on June 02, 2015, 03:32:09 PM
Holy chit that's a lot of randomness Sang.   :p

Tiles flooring's a good idea for the kitchen if you spend a lot of time there.  But it takes away the "wholeness" looks of the house if it's mainly covered by hardwood or laminates.  How about tiles that look like wood?

Hey @everyone, let's all pitch in and buy Roses a shih tzu!  Meanwhile, I'll let you have mine for a week.  My maltese/shih tzu mix is 7 months old now, and she recently learns to love hugging. Just a few minutes ago she was clasping my arm tightly with her front paws.

Wait a minute... do female dogs hump, or is that limited to intact male dogs only?!?!!

I'm thinking about getting a pug or shih Tzu, probably get both lol.
But I'm not ready yet.
Dogs require a lot of attention, especially when they're like babies.

When I'm more settled down and home bound, I'm getting one for sure.

When she was younger she has much more brown on her.  I'm sure the brown came from being mixed with shih tzu, because malteses were bred to be all white from what I understand.  When I'm home I'll post more pics for ya.

With your salary it shouldn't take you long to save up at least for the down payment.  But you're right, house prices in SJ are getting higher and higher.

@Sang17 you definitely should get a dog after starting a family.  It will bring the family together in so many good ways.

I'm about to go on a lengthy vacation, 1-2 weeks, and I don't know where to keep my cat.  Pet sitting services are sure to cost a lot so I'm thinking of other plans.  Maybe lock her up into a room and let her rummage through 40lb bag of food.

If your cat isn't allowed outside don't lock it in a room with food it will die.  From experience.  It was very sad the vets diagnosed neurological disorder.  It just stopped and its bodily functions were all shutting down and I gave the order to put it to sleep.  From then on I still have a fondness of cats but I found them to be disgusting in some way.  Too human, finnicky, and requiring too much.  It scares me.  Cats are more social animals than dogs and they will shut down if they don't hear from you for a week.
Title: Re: Random Chit Chat Thread
Post by: gaden on July 10, 2015, 06:02:02 AM
I think some cats have problems with certain diseases if you let it outside.  They have different vaccinations types depending on how you plan on raising your cat, if you let it outside, interaction with other cats and animals, eating wild things, etc...  I keep my cat in the house so that it won't catch fleas. (Does anyone know if fleas get in your hair they become lice?)

I like cats.  They are usually reserved to themselves and don't give the golly.  Just like a person, I like to let them develop their own character.

This cat don't give the sheet.

do you have any trustworthy neighbors, preferable with other friendly pets and pay them to cat-sit her for a week. If they're already taking care of other pets not that much more work.

otherwise, you may just have to bite the bullets and put her in a kennel.

too bad she's not outdoors cat. My friend has a cat that also goes outdoors. When he's not home the cat can survive outside OK. He has his next door neighbor come over to feed it daily and kinda keep an eye on it. The thing is the cat doesn't wander. Just stays in the backyard which is quite comfortable. he even has a stray cat friend that also gets fed so the stray cat stays around and they keep each other company. 

I love animals but for the simple reason I can't be there to care for them makes it hard, esp if they're babies.
