i don't really watch the Kid's Choice Awards anymore (a sign that i am, indeed, all grown up), but of course, we're all interested in what was worn by whom. so, here we go.

i seriously cannot live without this lip balm. it is one of the things i would definitely bring with me if i ever "get stuck on an island".

many of us just recently had our spring break, are on it right now, or just about to have it next week. personally, i think spring break is the first indication that in a few months, summer will finally be here! besides sleeping in and going to the beach, summer gives us the opportunity to travel and see places we haven't seen before. :D
1. Santorini, Greece-- i love the idea of walking around with your bathing suit under a cute summer dress, and jumping in the ocean Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants-style. :)
2. Hawaii, USA-- it's the closest to me, and therefore the most realistic. ;)
7. Ireland-- watching P.S. I Love You, made me appreciate this beautiful country even more. :)
8. St. Petersburg, Russia-- this would be a whole new experience. and i gotta admit, i still love watching Anastasia. :)
9. Bangkok, Thailand-- riding elephants, eating yummy Thai food, shopping... now, that would be so much fun, right?! :)
10. Boracay, Philippines-- white sand. :)
have you been to any of these places? where would you want to go?

my most recent purchase was Clinique in Juicy Apple. i used to always buy lip glosses that were pink or a different color close to that. now that i am older, i just wanted to try one in a more vibrant color. and what other color screams vibrant more than red, right?
Juicy Apple, $14 from Sephora

there are a variety of flavors to choose from - strawberry, mango, green tea, taro, peach - you name it, most boba places have it.
now, while i do love boba shakes, i must say that the texture and softness of the boba balls make all the difference. i have tried some with overcooked boba balls. two words = not good. those with perfectly chewy ones, on the other hand = perfectly perfect.
i have also learned that boba balls just don't work well with plain fruity shakes. i find that it tastes way better when paired with a shake that has milk in it. but then again, every taste palate is different. go with whatever you crave. :D
Random fact: Boba balls are a mixture of tapioca and carrageenan powder.

it tells the story of Mary Fiore, a lonely wedding planner. despite making brides' fairy tale weddings come true, her life is the complete opposite of the weddings she plan. one fateful day, a doctor saves her from being run over by a dumpster hit by a taxi driver (who shows up again towards the end of the movie). Mary and her best friend, Penny, then invite Dr. Steve Edison to watch old movies at the Golden Gate park. Mary then starts to believe she has found a man of her own, until she finds out that he is the fiance of her one of brides, Fran Donelly.
it's just one of those movies that you'll never get tired of watching. i've seen this movie a million times - to the point that i actually know most of the lines. but i still love it. i get so excited whenever it is shown on TV, and of course i have the DVD. :D
random fact: this came out in 2001, almost ten years ago! isn't that crazy?

on lazy days when all we want to do is hang around at home, our fave japanese restaurant is the first and only answer when it comes to the question: "what should we have for dinner?"
Teriyaki Platter --$39.50
since we have a big family, we always order their japanese food platter. for $39.50, it really is such a great deal. it consists of 6 different dishes, and comes with a separate platter full of yummy japanese rice. i love it!
Price Range: $7.50 - $8.50
we also recently tried three of their many types of sushi. they are all so good and freshly made. and best of all, affordable.
Do you like Japanese food?:D
