little tokyo

raul and i had CPK in dowtown l.a. tonight. i really love los angeles. there are just so many things to do. after dinner, we decided to walk around little tokyo. first stop, starbucks. it was a cold night, so raul had hot chocolate and i had green tea. next, we checked out the menus outside the restaurants to get an idea of what they serve and what we should try next time we're there for lunch or dinner. then my favorite part... the sanrio store was still open at 9 pm. love it! i got myself a hello kitty wallet and a hello kitty notebook. i finally got a notebook where i can write my favorite verses and inspirational quotes. and tonight i wrote my first entry:

"Have faith in God," Jesus answered. "I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, 'Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours." - Mark 11:22-24

i can't wait to add more to my little notebook. it's a great way to be inspired, motivated and focused... especially with everything that's going on in this world and our personal lives.

good night everyone!

a short prayer

dear Lord, thank you for this wonderful day. thank you for everything that you have done for me. for dying on the cross for my sins, thank you Lord. i'm sorry, Lord, that i haven't been attending church on sundays because of work. i do want to serve you and know you more. please God, i pray that i will find a job that will give me sundays off. i miss going to church. i'm a better person when i go to church regularly. i want to continue my walk with You. thank you for being with me and giving me a reason to smile always. i love you, Lord. amen.

los angeles

so yesterday, my older sister let me borrow her camera. she has a nikon D80. i love it!! i need to buy a new camera coz mine sucks. anyway, raul and i decided to take plenty of pictures. first, we went to the grove to have a late lunch. pampa's brazilian barbecue is the best. we had top sirloin, caesar salad, spaghetti and fried plantains. awesome!

here's a cute picture, taken by the security guard. lol
then we went to rodeo drive and took more pictures. he mostly took my pictures. he's camera-shy... and i am a camera ham, not hog, ok? FYI : A camera hog "steals the spotlight" from others, while a camera ham is a very over-enthusiastic model for the camera, loves the attention, and loves to be photographed. A camera ham doesn't mind sharing the spotlight.
the louis vuitton store was closed because kanye west was in there, shopping.

i'd love to have a pair of jimmy choo

don't you just love l.a.?
i know i do ♥

i love cupcakes! they are just so yummy, even on handmade cards. most of the birthday cards i make are cupcake-themed. i can't get enough of it! hehe. here are some handmade papergoods that i've made in the past:

don't you just love 'em? anyway, my goal this year is to learn how to make real cupcakes, you know... the edible ones. lol. i also want to learn to decorate with frosting and sprinkles... and all that jazz! i can't wait! i think i'm gonna buy my supplies today

i love etsy. if you have not heard of it, etsy is a website where you can sell and/or buy handmade items. you should definitely check it out! i have sold over 2,000 handmade papergoods. although i have stopped posting due to my crazy schedule. maybe one day i'll start making cards again. one day, when i get all my supplies organized, when i have a scrapbook room, when i have the money to, when i have the time to, one day...

but for now, enjoy this creation by yours truly

my day off

i love having time off from work. i finally get to relax, clean my room, spend some time with family, pet mr. miyagi, and i get to see raul. yay! so this morning, i woke up at 6. i know, i know... too early. but i had to get up because i was thirsty. i was debating whether to stay up or get more zzzz. obviously, i decided to stay up. but it's all good. i had oatmeal with my mom, made my bed, organized my closet, cleaned my room, and downloaded music. a couple of hours later, here i am blogging. yay! i love this. it's like my new thing. hehe. anyway, my niece, julia reese is coming over in a little while. i can't wait to see her. i haven't seen her in a couple of weeks. she is such a cutie just like auntie. i'm just kidding. just wanted to rhyme. well, i gotta get ready. today will be a fun day, for sure ♥

my top 3

i love God - He is an awesome God! He takes good care of me, heals me when i'm sick, comforts me when i'm down, provides when i have nothing, loves me for who i am, and forgives me.

i love raul - he has been my boyfriend since may 01, 2001. now he isn't just my boyfriend, but also my bestfriend. i am very fortunate to have such a great man by my side. he is caring, loving, sweet, and thoughtful. but what i love the most about him is his patience.

i love my family - for being there always
