Saint Valentine's Day, 2010

Today passed by like a dream. This must have been the best Valentine's Day (and Chinese New Year) I've ever had. No scratch that, today was one of the best days in my life! Why?


Because I woke up with a ring on my ring finger! Literally! hahaha...those of you that talked to me before know that I am a deep sleeper, the usual kitty running around the floor above the bedroom, small earthquakes, ambulances, trains passing by don't usually wake me up easily. This morning, I woke up feeling the bf holding my hands tightly and a ring on my ring finger, but sleepy-head me still didn't even realize what was going on. The ring just felt like it belonged there on my finger all along, I guess that's a good sign :) We always knew that we'd be engaged someday, and I have had the hunch that this day was coming soon, but it was still such a nice surprise to see it finally happening!

Thanks to all my sweet friends who already congratulated us on Twitter. I can't wait to plan the Big Day soon!


Our plan for today was to stay at home and make BBQ. Thankfully the weather was extra gorgeous today! We made so much food even though it was just the two of us! Consider this my last time to pig out before I set up a rigorous diet/exercise plan for myself so I could look my best for my wedding :D

 Garden green salad with Japanese miso dressing, T-bone steak.

BBQ baby back ribs



Grilled artichokes



Red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting -- our favorite!



Tropical fruit salad


While the two of us were busy making food, Mia got to lazy out under the sun. What a luxurious life she has! :)


Happy Year of the Tiger! :)

  28. The B.B. cream tube is 10ml so ~0.34oz and in NO.23. It's not much. I never tried and Missha products before that's why I thought why not try the sampler.

    Hope that helps. =]

  30. Hi Lulu!

    Super sorry for my late comment. Congratulations!! I wish you guys all the happiness in the world. I can't wait to come back to the Bay Area so we can double date haha. Seriously, it was really cute how your SO proposed. hehe Imagine going the whole day without noticing the ring!! All that food looks so yummy. And girl, you're going to look faaaaabulous on your wedding day no matter what. :)

  31. Hiya Lulu! I heart the La Mer eye concentrate (well except for the price of course...hehe). It hydrates nicely but isn't heavy, doesn't break me out (I have actually broken out from eye cream before), and works wonderfully under makeup. And of course the applicator is fun to apply with too...lol. Happy weekend, love!
