Doggie Headlines


I still can't believe this happened when I wasn't home yesterday.

whew.... I still need to take a deep breath and pinch myself


When I came back from work yesterday, DH wanted me to promise not to get upset at him before he told me THIS!!!!! .....


actually ......

"But dad, you promised not to tell mom!!!!"

well, DH watched too much TV, learn from the show NATURE - Dogs that changed the world, and that Papi used to be wolf, and needs to go hunting at our backyard,  he has been letting Papi outside and then go do his things, and will only call him back after 20-30 minutes later, oh well, we have a side gate but it has chicken wire around it because we tried to keep the rabbits away. He did this so many times and nothing ever happen until......

SOMEONE decided to go on an adventure...

so when DH finally realized that Papi went missing, he went outside to look for him and whew..... he found Papi sniffing outside the garage door of our neighbor, so he tried to be as gentle as possible and said "Hi Papi!!!"

and Papi was like.....
putting his ears down, as if he knew he did something wrong

and walked to daddy, and then stayed by daddy the whole day and never want to leave daddy's side until mommy is home.

imagine when mommy is home? how scared she could be?

when mommy trying to ask question...

Papi said "Huh? what you saying mom, I am busy doing Yoga!!!"

"Huh? what you saying mom, I am busy biting bottles!"

"What mom? Can't you see I am trying to sleep?"

(mom said)

Project Life ~ January 7 to 10

Project Life 2015

January 7

We leave for San Francisco today, this time, we stay at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel, 5 stars hotel is truly 5 stars, we were greeted with nice fragrance tea and yummy cookies.

the view from the 48th floor is awesome

we walked to China Town for our favorite Singapore Chili crab and I found a Daiso just close to our hotel, Daiso is like a dollar store in America, except it sells all the Japanese product, like the one I shopped in Tokyo and Singapore. I heard that LA has one too, I need to go there someday.

January 8

Today I woke up missing Papi a lot!

DH at work, I walked just a block from our hotel and had breakfast at La Boulange, yummy almond croissant and Macha Latte

for lunch, as usual, also Hog Island at Ferry Terminal

get our usual stuff - clam chowder 

this time we also tried their caesars salad and DH tried a shrimp grits, both were delicious

of course when we were there, no reason not to take a bit at Miette's french macarons, just the store itself is so pretty

January 9

We took the street bus to Fisherman's Wharf, taking public transport is one of my favorite thing to do when I travel.

Scoma's is where we had lunch

DH loves their fish

and I had their signature cioppino

I am glad the cable car die I ordered from PTI came in time for me to finish up my page

I was trying to get the same look of this cable car in San Francisco

after lunch, we went back to the hotel and pack, and then hop on the Bart  (another public transportation in SF) to go to Dublin Pleasanton, it was a 50 minutes ride. We picked up our rental car from there and drove to Bankhead theater at Livermore, CA - the main purpose of this trip is to watch George Winston's performance.

this little town is lovely, we walked around downtown area before concert started, and found a pretty good sushi place too (Roppongi Sushi)

January 10

Home to see Papi, YAY!

MFT Color challenge #14

DH bought a new golf set, so..... now you know why I have so much time to craft and blog?

I played with MFT color challenge for quite a while, and then I got busy, not time to craft, no time to post, I actually missed 2-3 months??  or maybe more? Well, I am back again... 

Here's the color palette

Here's my card....

the card goes to DH on our anniversary, so I try hard to be less feminine here

I love these dies from MFT
