2016... that's a wrap

Both of my brothers are home and work is off for 2 weeks, things here are really mellow and slow. I'm glad we have the time and opportunities to hang out and kick it again before 2017 kicks in.

Thomas brought stuff home from Vietnam. The Vietnamese have a strange way of wrapping things up. Everything appears to look like how they wrap cocaine up.

8 years of gardening

After 8 years of gardening, the city drop the bomb on us and want to shut it down. It is funny because we've been doing this for 8 years and we live about 2 blocks away from the civic center. Did someone make that phone call and want to complain? I don't know, but I don't see any "harm" in plants and vegetables. Whatever the reason, they didn't want  us to grow plants in our yards anymore. That being said, the parents are "salty" over it because they've been doing it for so long. In the midst of this whole time, we had so much organic food and we made a lot of friends.

Despite the bad news, their chins are still up and their smiles still shine.

Allen's Bachelor Party

So.. my buddy's gonna get marry next year and he's busier than ever before. That being said, we decided to go skydiving (Which I wasn't really interested in doing in the first place) in San Diego. The night before we stay over a house in Oceanside via AirBnB eating tacos and kicking it. I had 2 strong ipa beers and passed out before 10pm. Those guys played card games and being their usual loud selves until 2am.

Next day, the weather was so cloudy that they had to cancel the event for the entire day. With a downcast face and a gloomy weather, we drove to get boba and walked around Old Town San Diego. One of the highlight was Allen getting pushed out then get kick out again. I wasn't there to see it, but he sure did have fun. At night, we had bbq at phil and drove home. That was pretty much it. We had a lot of fun this weekend. The weather could've been better, but hey there's nothing you can do against the weather.

Mom's 60th

Her birthday was 2 months ago. But I didn't have time to blog much these days. Fortunately, as a substitute teacher, I do get 3 weeks off. Which is very nice. 

Well.. Mom is 60 and she is smiling like she's still in her 40s. The same smile when I was a kid. In many ways, I thank God that she gives and continue to give me a crazy amount of love and support. It's overwhelming and I cannot express it in words.
