tomorrow will be a very important day for both of us. andy’s going to a conference at cedar rapids to determine whether he’s eligible for the ASE certificant training next semester. i really hope he gets it. it seems like kirkwood(his college) has one the best toyoto mechanical school. tomorrow i will be studying for my chemistry and attend the review section at nite to prepare to ace the fourth test. btw, i do have an A in class right now. however there will be that exam then a final still waiting for me ;_;
at 1pm, we will have the meeting/interview with the apartment place so they can see if we are eligible for the cheap apartment. we are looking forward to get like a two bedroom for around $100/month or even cheaper. pray for the good luck!
my schedule for next semester is final now after a bit of changing around since some of the courses i want to take overlap each other. I’m taking Calculus III, Elementary Numerical Analysis, Algorithm and Introduction to International Relations (my most “don’t want to take” course to fulfill my social science requirements for GE )
BTW, andy forgot to mention something yesterday. the billy chef gave andy a new nickname. hehehe.. he was praising andy’s looks (which he gets a lot now from ppl ) and said he (andy) has a baby face. LOL.. that’s so appropriate. andy’s my baby face now
jenn has a beautiful new layout up!
There is a new oriental restaraunt open in IC so Dodo and I went there to eat. It is one of those steakhouses where the chef cooks on the table in front of you and does a little show. Well this restaruant advertised it as “The Best Show.” To put it lightly, I have eaten at the Ohana Steakhouse in Des Moines where this awesome guy called Sai owns it and is also the head chef. My brother and I and our friend request Sai for a reason. He will laugh and talk with you, juggle knives and throw a dummy knife at one of the patrons he also does an amazing flipping of eggs where he cracks it puts the egg on the fryer and lands the shell in his hat!! Ok anyway, we are at the Tokyo Ichiban (the new one in IC) and our chef is a malaysian named . . . Billy?? Well Billy was a nice guy and everything, but to put it bluntly, his show was desperately lacking in showmanship. He did this cheesy little flipping spatula routine and every time he caught the spatula he would say “HOY” The flipping ended very dramatically and he bowed, said thank you, and disappeared for about 10 minutes before he came back and cooked our food. What’s up with that?? The nice part was that he cooked some excellent Salmon and Shrimp/Beef/Pork fried rice for us to eat, and was altogether a kind host. But when it comes to the art of cooking Teppan style, Sai has that rookie beat by a lightyear.
cute girl is a cute theme with pastel colors. it’s something i wanted to do before i devote my entire day for my book report tomorrow ;_; i hope you enjoy it!
bad andy! i told him to blog and he didn’t!! i will go home and spank him today muahahaha.. XD well he bought a new car. my father actually liked this one. a 92 geo prism and as what i heard, it’s essentially the same as a toyoto corolla. it’s a small white car. i only got to have a quick look. the inside looks like my old car.
it’s raining really bad today otherwise i’d take a picture of it =)
and this is just TOOOOO funny but terrible.. woaaaaaaaaa
sigh.. altho i crushed into the bed last nite at 8, andy woke me up at 10 when he went to bed and guess what?! i could not fall asleep after that. i was thinking about web pages and programming of course XD i forced myself NOT TO get on the internet. i got up around 2am and did the exercise i missed that day hoping to make myself tired enough to fall asleep. but i couldn’t. i ended up reading the book for my book report for modern china until 4am. and i got up at 9. (now i’m sleepy Zzzz~~)
after my chemistry class, i quickly went home wishing to take a nap. but andy showed up with this new car he was looking at last nite on the advertisement. it’s a 96 geo metro from a nearby city. he said the dealer allowed him to drive the metro to iowa city and leave his car there. he can trade in his car for $2000 and pay an additional $1000 for the metro.
it’s a cute purple car. he let me drive it. and i took it to my dad. but my dad hated it =P its engine is really loud and the acceleration is TERRIBLE. he said it probably has poor transmission system. it’s really not a good deal. so andy will have to take it back tomorrow.
i also got my greencard from my mom!! i couldn’t believe it was so easy. my mom was actually acting like A PERSON. i have to get my greencard coz the apartment places asked us to attend an “interview” next tuesday with them before they give us the apartment. and at that interview, i need to bring my greencard. so i was like NO… i was expecting to have a very difficult time getting the card.
i called my mom around noon. i told her i want to get the greencard. she asked if it was ok for her to drive by the place i live and drop it off for me. of course i firmly refused. then she sounded a bit pissed off and went “fine, just come and get it yourself then” and hang up. i was expecting to not seeing her when i go there or not getting the card easily. since similar senario happened too many times before. nevertheless, i had to go.
when i walked into the house, she handed the card to me right a way. and she also gave me some coupons for a buffet place. she even said “oh, you can stop by more often.” LOL why would i want to do that?! the greencard is last thing i ever need to get from her. not impressive. just can’t do anything to change my conception about her any more.
inspired by christin, i made a little script for my flammer friend at my guestbook. it replaces all negative and swearing languages with “i worship dodo” muahahahahhaha
worship me! worship me! XD XD
today’s a nice day. i recieved checks from two of my clients. the softlead soft company and christine-lee.com board installation money. i already finished things up for christine and i will pack things up for phi tonite. my client from echirps is asking me to help her with another project which i will probably start sometime soon. but i have a paper due next week which i will devote my time to this sunday sigh… finals are coming. i also need to take a better look at the classes i will register for next semester. 28th is coming up soon.
i’m obsessed with Baby Davis blog. ronni‘s child. how sweet. =) just makes me feel warm.
more artists at my oekaki start to draw for the upcoming ecard shop for dmb. they are so cute. i’m so touched. i will have to make it my next biggest project for dmb =) i will make a nice script which everyone loves. i already have great ideas and plans. *ahem* for the time
half more hour to get out of work YESSSS!
i didn’t know my cs department is this cool. i can access all these cds FOR FREE! except Microsoft Office which i already have XD

yup yup, that’s my grand work. shrimp stir fry is one of my masterpieces. yumm.. it took me an hour to do all the preparation. interested in learning how? first, you have go through the most boring and time cosuming part which is to to unshell one pound of shrimp, cut the broccoli, celery, carrots and green pepper. then marinate the shrimp in chopped green onions, chopped ginger roots, soy sauce and cooking wine for 15 minutes. You can then begin the stir fry process. stir fry the broccoli, carrots first since they take longer to cook. dump in the marinated shrimp, green pepper, green peas and celery. add more salt, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sugar (sorry, no measurements, i eye those). you SHOULD NOT put the lid on the wok if you don’t want your green pepper to turn brown. and fry for at least 10 minutes, you will get a delicious plate of shrimp stir fry. of course it’s the best to serve them with white rice.
shrimp inside of the wok and shrimp on the plate with rice.
