Annual Xmas Party Pics

Roller Coaster Los Angeles

To say that my recent trip to Los Angeles is a whirlwind of emotions might just be an understatement. My friends in LA organized an Annual Christmas Party doubling as a reunion as well. Since almost everyone has began living their lives and became busy either with work, love life or has even started their own families, its so rare to find that perfect opportunity to gather everyone and just touch base on what has been happening. So it was set for December 16 this year. I planned the trip over a month before the event as I didn’t want to miss it this year. I was psyched to see my friends again!

The troubles began when my boss didn’t allow me to go on leave for a few days. I had to settle for just the weekend. I was set on going and I wasn’t going to allow any kind of hindrance to be in my way to going back to Los Angeles. Then there was the snowstorm in New York, which may lead to cancellation of flights. Fortunately, my flight wasn’t cancelled. Then I got sick. My first day in Los Angeles, with the perfect weather, I was sneezing 10 times per minute. So that sucked. But I pulled through after some Vodka remedy and a bit of clubbing at Rage. Which was followed by some serious Christmas shopping along Melrose and Beverly Hills. Which totally made my weekend.

Amidst all the fun, there was some serious catching up to do especially with my closest friends. Sadly, there are a lot of problems that came up within their relationships. It had me thinking of my current state. Which I think is an entirely different blog that will follow.

The Christmas Party was a blast. It was great to see almost everyone took the time to really dress up and look extra fabulous that night. Taking a step back, I realized I had really great looking friends! But the night ended with some major drama with one of my close friends. As much as I would like to pour my heart out and discuss this issue here, I feel that I am not ready to confront how I feel about it and how I would react and continue on after what happened.

Now, as I sit on the plane, halfway through the 6-hour flight to New York, questions arise regarding relationships, commitment, fidelity, career, and friendship. Where and would I get my answers? Maybe as I come back to my new apartment and when I have Pumpkin in my arms! I missed her so much!

Golden Poo

Get this, some whack-job named Tobias Wong and the e-company Ju$t Another Rich Kid created a Gold Pill . It's a gel cap pill dipped in gold and filled with 24-karat gold leaf and it retails for $425.00. Sounds cute but wait, you don't get it yet... This pill is not intended to be worn as jewelery, the pill is for you to eat so you can increase your interior self-worth. Asa bonus, the pill makes your poo come out all golden and sparkly. So yes, you too can shit gold.

Gay marriage is an obstacle to world peace, apparently. Damn.

Plus One

I've always been independent. No wait, not entirely true. Most of the time, I am very independent. I've learned to fend for myself and survive on my own for the most part of my adult life. Considering that in my early 20's I decided to move to the United States and try my life here. Ever since then, I've been on the road to a life of challenges, trials, disappointments and of course great successes as well.

Of course I am going to write about love. The first paragraph was just an attempt at a semi-intellectual blog posting.

The past few weeks I have been wondering what it would feel like to have a "plus one." You know, when you get invited to events and you RSVP and add a "plus one." In most cases it hasn't been a big deal for me to go alone, or in most cases bring a friend. But this time its different. I tend to think about having a significant "plus one" in my life.

Is this the effect of the wide spread commercialization of the holiday season where everything else would be extra special if you would be celebrating the joyous events with someone special? Is it because I just recently turned 30 years old, and in more way than one, I might be getting old, and would want someone to share my life with? Is it because most of the people around me are adding their "plus one's" in their lives as well?

I don't know.
