good riddance 2013. you won't be missed
yesterday at 10:30 am, my grandma passed away. i first heard the news while i was at work. Aiyi picked up the phone and told me that she was being sent to the emergency room since there was a chance she could still be alive and rescued. we rushed to plainview hospital, just as my dad and uncle, who flew in from China, arrived with us. My mom met us at the entrance and she was crying. I had never seen her before in such a state, except when grandpa passed away.

we went to grandma's room. at first i thought she was just sleeping, until i started to observe that she wasn't hooked to any machines. there was the stench that people give of when they die, and her lips looked different. my uncle was crying and holding her. i had to ask dad whether or not she was still alive. it made me feel like an idiot, or maybe it was because i was in denial.

these next few weeks are going to be hard. the wake will be tomorrow and the funeral is this weekend. i am amazed at my mom, despite suffering so much, she is able to pull through and make all the funeral arrangements like ordering flowers, contacting everyone, and so on.

the thing that hurts about my grandma's passing are the missed oppurtunities. i should have spent more time with her, played more of her favorite puzzle games, talked with her and learnabout what her life was like when she was in china and once she came to america. now there's nothing.

has it really come to this?

So apparently someone at SDCC asked Dean DeBlois and the others working on HTTYD 2 about the Big Four (ugh what kind of name is that?! They're now tied with Superwholock for most irritating name and fandom) and if they'll ever team up with Disney.


I'm pretty sure that the studio who made the animated features lampooning the saccharine fairytales would rather file a Chapter 11 than work with them. Also, let's not forget Chris Sanders and Brenda Chapman ditched the toxic rat because of creative issues, so keep dreaming.

But I'm glad the answer was shut down with a blunt NO.



HTTYD 2 teaser trailer that came out today, just too beautiful for words. I lost count on how many times I hit the replay button.

I also finally, FINALLY passed my road test yesterday. Now I can go out for food and other stuff.


Celebrating with a new icon of my queen :D

Laceration? Evisceration? Incineration?!

Your result for Which Dwarf from The Hobbit are you?...


25% Extroversion, 47% Intuition, 41% Attachment and 38% Organisation!

Congratulations, you are most like DWALIN, brother of Balin, and second in command in the Company of Thorin Oakenshield. Dwalin is a renowned warrior and proficient with weapons of all kinds, in particular his battle axes, Ukhlat and Umraz. You have strong observational skills, taking an interest in the mechanics of how things work. The pursuit of this curiosity gives you the unique ability to be highly adaptable in manipulating tools in their environments, and achieving mastery in their usage.

You approach your environment in a practical and logical manner, addressing the problems at hand. You are highly adaptable and independent, making you good at responding quickly and appropriately in emergencies. This leads you to pursue action and thrill-seeking activities. These attributes have helped Dwalin out of numerous tight spots during his years of battling and hardship. Your greatest strengths lie in your autonomy and resourcefulness.

Some people perceive you as detached, as you prefer complex problems and mechanics that you can apply your logic to, rather than the messy emotions of other people. You enjoy having your personal space, with ability to be independent and spontaneous. This need to distance yourself from people makes you come off as critical and guarded to those who don’t have your trust. Dwalin will follow none except those who have earned his respect, but when they have he is fiercely loyal to the last. He would willingly lay down his life for Thorin.

an update

Sandy hit my area this week, but we've been recovering rather well. Classes are canceled for the whole week, leaving me lots of time to have fun.

Nah... not really, still have to study and read. :(

Also I don't know what's happening to me, but lately I've been going back to childhood times, which involves searching up youtube videos of old computer games like Cluefinders, Putt-Putt, and Freddi Fish. Dunno when I'll snap out of it.
