Hold My Heart

I have been feeling rather emotional lately and have been listening to a lot of sappy love songs and such. I'm blaming it on the crimson wave, as usual. I missed it last month (I dapat puasa FULL!! YAY! No need ganti, next year!) actually, but when I got it this month, it was "back with a vengeance" and now, I'm feeling extra-PMSy.

So yeah. I don't know what it is about these crazy hormones, it just gives me a heavy heart. My heart feels so heavy, that at times I feel like I need one of those ekg machines to make sure that there's nothing wrong with my heart. I just don't know how to explain it. The ladies will most probably understand me but the guys will have probably clicked the "x" button on the top corner the minute I mentioned "crimson wave". :P

With everything else in my life that I'm going through right now -- work, home, and personal stuff -- I feel so exhausted. However, it IS time for Music Monday and normally, I'd choose a song that would chase my blues away, but right now, I don't mind drowning myself in some emo songs. Yes, I'm feeling sorry for myself and what better way to do it, than with this song by Sara Bareilles -- Hold My Heart. It's from her Kaleidoscope Heart album, which I own and love, by the way.

Somehow, listening to Sara Bareilles croon with so much emotion and soul, it sorta makes me feel better. :) Weird but true. Hope you like this one! :) Happy Music Monday, everyone!

Poor Baby!

I have so much on my plate right now. Figuratively, not literally.

I have a lot of work to do and most of it entails going online. However, with this house hunting business, I'm afraid I just don't have the time. Not to mention the fact that my laptop is acting up in a major way. I'm just thanking my lucky stars that my lappy, despite it's problems, still has lots of spirit and is still giving me it's all. I've had this laptop since 2007 and I'm not ready to say goodbye to it yet. I know, I know, there are plenty of laptops on sale but this is my baby!

I'm planning to send her for a thorough check up and hopefully whatever is wrong with her still can be fixed. However, I'm bracing myself for the typical "Aiya, this is an old model, spare parts are hard and expensive to find already.. just get new one lah". With all my plans on moving and planning a vacay, I seriously don't need the headache of buying a new laptop right now.

I need more MOOLAH!

I don't know who the poor baby is now. Me or my laptop. I guess in this case, poor baby will have to be me. Literally, not figuratively. :(

House Hunting

It's been a while since I last blogged. I've actually been busy house-hunting with the husband. We're planning to move out of our place into a bigger place before year's end so all my energy is focused on that right now.

I just wish it were simple to find a house that suits the bill. Wait, scratch that. I wish I didn't have a BUDGET to find a house that suits the bill. Yeah, that's more like it.. 'coz if that's the case, I already know where I want to move to.

But I will be sad to leave my place and the conveniences it offers.. especially the part where I'm able to walk my son to school. There aren't many housing areas within walking distance to the school.. and even if there are any, it's just too bloody expensive.

My husband saw a yakima bike rack on someone's car and had the crazy idea of having my son cycle to school instead. That certainly ain't happening because there's no way that I'd allow it. I think my husband is nuts just to say the idea out loud. Go ahead and call me a protective and overbearing mom, I don't care.

Anyways, wish me luck on the house-hunting! :)

Wordless Wednesday: Silly Sisters

My sister tagged me on Facebook of this picture that my mom took of all of us sisters (L-R: My eldest sister, my younger sister, yours truly and my sister-in-law).

I had a blast being around my family and my crazy funny sisters during the Raya hols and I miss them like crazy already! :(

I think we had more of a blast at Toys 'R' Us than my children. Haahaha!

Fighting Temptations

So it's been 5 days of fasting and I hope everyone is holding up well. I have been keeping busy with my daily activities and mommy duties so time flies by in a jiffy. There's so much more to fasting than refraining from eating and drinking all day that I like to think of it as a detox of the mind, body and soul.

Seriously, not only do you refrain from eating and drinking, you also have to fight the temptation to gossip, to get angry, to have ill thoughts of anybody, to smoke (for the smokers) not to mention that hubbies and wifeys can't do the nasty nasty during the day. Hahaha!

So instead, you go about your daily activities like the Do-Gooder that you're normally not. It really is a time to reflect and be grateful for all the things you have in your life and hopefully that after a whole month of "rehab" you'll be able to change for the better and not fall back and relapse into your old ways.

Like Lent, for the Christians, I'm giving up time online because I know I spend unnecessary amounts of time just cruising Twitter and Facebook or the web for hours and hours.

So what I do is, everyday, I choose something that needs serious cleaning and work on that. That way, I don't have to do serious spring cleaning and leave myself dead tired if I chose to do it in one day.

I recently, took to task the mission of cleaning out my handbags. Honest to God in the holy month of Ramadhan, that I skimmed 2kgs of receipts from my bags. I think even a brand new Epson TM-T88V receipt printer would go bust if it printed out the amount of receipts in my bag.

Tomorrow, my mission will be to rearrange Buddy and Allie's toy storage and pack some toys and old clothes to be given away to orphanages/hospitals. If any of you know of any foundation or cause that needs some, then feel free to let me know.

But I'm no saint. The only thing I need to constantly keep working on is my "anger issues".


I'm not an angry person, but nor am I a Jane Goodall. Being a food lover like I am, I guess being hungry makes me cranky, is all. I guess like everyone else, I'm a working progress.

Last Day of July

Dear readers of My Sweet Escape,

I'm alive! Some of you have been messaging me on private whether on Twitter or Facebook to check up on me to see if I'm doing okay and I'm absolutely touched by your concern. Things are going well with me, the children and the husband.. it's just that time is really not on my side. It's the last day of July and I noticed that I have less than a dozen posts for July.

I know that everyone gets the same 24 hours a day.. I just don't know how some people do it. Maybe I'm just really bad at time management. Anyways. I've missed writing. Not blogging. But writing. Writing about things that matter. Sure, I blog about mundane things. I do assignments that I'm given. But I haven't written about "matters of the heart" so to speak. A philosopher, I am not.. but I have noticed that my posts do lack... "depth".

There's just so much going on in my head.. things that I want to write about.. things that I need to let out, but whenever I start blogging, it all comes out as random nothings, or worse, something lame. Like this post right here.


Oh well. I just wanted to thank you guys for being there for me even if I wasn't around. :) Your sincerity, kindness and concern is much appreciated.

And to my fellow Muslim brothers and sisters out there, have a wonderful Ramadhan and may Allah S.W.T. accept from us our deeds during this whole month of Mercy. Stay healthy! :)

Out of Ideas

I've got my friend's son's 1st birthday party to attend today and believe me you, that I have no idea what to get for her son. In her invite it says that her baby will be expecting presents no matter how big or small. When someone says they want a birthday present, I hit a dead end. I get stuck and rooted to the spot.

I remember my son's 1st birthday and he wasn't able to play or use 90% of the things he got. Perhaps I'll get my friend's son something cool to wear. But at this hour, the hubs isn't at home and I don't know if I've got time to go out and get something. Yeah, my bad. Leaving everything to the last minute.

I was googling the best children's birthday present and still got nowhere. In fact, one of the link even lead me here. I'm like, whaaa??

I really don't wanna show up to the birthday empty handed, though. That's just in bad taste, don'tcha think? The hubby isn't back yet and the party is at 3pm. You'd think a mother of two would be good at these things, right?? Wrong! Any ideas anyone?

Can't Wait To Go Back!

I think the reason I've sorta lost my blogging mojo is due to the fact that I haven't gone back to KK in a couple of months. Normally, by this time of the year, I would have gone back to my hometown at least 4 times already. This year so far, I've only been back twice.

I miss my mom, sisters and brothers. :( I hope my brother already has a PS3 move hooked up.. that would be a blast!! But then again, Buddy wouldn't want to come back to KL for sure.

I don't mind living in KL. I like it despite the haze and the absence of a beach. KL is home for me too and most of my friends are here. Come to think of it, I don't have that many friends back in KK. Hmm..

Anyways, I hope to go back sometime next month during Ramadhan.. and I can't wait! :)

Getting Enough Rest

If anyone's been wondering where I am, my laptop has been acting up a little bit. So in a bid to save it from it's imminent demise, I decided to give it a long and deserved break from all the hard work I've been hammering out at it since I got it 4 years ago.

Now that it's rested well and long, I hope that it extended her life a bit somehow.

On another note, the husband, children and I are doing well. The past weekend saw me finally succumb to the fever that never got me. Remember when I said I was feeling sick-ish? Well, that time I managed to fight off the fever from getting to me, but I lost this weekend. Luckily, it didn't get me for long. I was only down for one day and then as suddenly as I got it, it was gone and I'm feeling great.

I just hope I don't get sick during the fasting month, next month. Insya-Allah, everything will be smooth sailing. I'm really looking forward to it. :)

I don't know whether I'll be back in KK during Hari Raya.. but you guys know me, right? I can't stay away from KK even if I tried. Haha! I also don't know whether we'll make it to my dad's kampung back in Sandakan or my uncle's place in Tawau this year or just stay in KK.

But if I'm in KK, I'll let you guys know so you can come over to my place during raya.. That's the beauty of Hari Raya.. you wanna come over.. then just come over. :) No invites needed. Although I did see some pretty invitations from Hahah.. but that's just too much, really.

Anyways, I will keep you guys updated on that. For now, I gotta go let my lappy rest again.

Keeping Dreams at Bay

These past few weeks, I have been trying diligently to change my sleeping hours from 11pm-6pm. Latest clock out time is 12.30am. I know to some, that's still pretty late.. but for me, who usually goes to bed around 3-4am and waking up at 6am.. that's considered pretty darn early.

Obviously, I do feel better about having enough sleep but what bothers me is that I wake up feeling so exhausted by my dreams. My dream are just so random and long and … unnecessary. In one dream, I actually dreamt I was one of those motorcycle gps dealers in Low Yat. What the hey, right?? Sooo random. I wonder if any of you can help keep dreams at bay. Meditation would probably be a start, don't you think? Well, at least that's what my common sense tells me.

I'm just so tired of these dreams. Literally.

Perhaps I just think too much. *sigh*

Hey everyone!!

Just wanted to make a quick note to all my readers that I will be MIA for a while. I just have too much on my plate to concentrate on right now... and I don't mean literally. LOL! Not to forget the fact that I'm a little sick-ish right now.

So, just wanted to let you guys know that my giveaway is still on. To FoongPc, Caroline, Tekkaus and LadyJava, I promise promise promise to send your vouchers by this week. Last week was just unmanageable. If I can't even find the time to send out a tweet, that means I'm really really bz.

There are still a lot of vouchers to be given away so I might do that next week. I won't be giving away acid cigars cheap, but there will be plenty of food and beverage vouchers to give out. :) So stay tuned for that.

Will miss you all loads! :)

Till my next post,

A Year In A Day

Last Thursday, I celebrated my 28th birthday! I love birthdays. I don't mind getting older as long as I don't look it. Although does being older mean I have to take one of those Medicare part D plans? LOL!! :) Anyways, I love that when a birthday rolls around, it makes you a year older in just one day. I always look at it as "a year in a day"!

However, I would like to take this chance to say thank you to everyone who left me birthday wishes. Whether it was early or belated. I'm so appreciative and grateful that all of you took a few seconds in your day to send me a wish and make me feel happy and loved! :)

I am utterly grateful to those who made special birthday posts dedicated to me, I am just thrilled and I'm not sure whether I really deserve so much special attention, but I really loved it. Thank you Ane and David.

Although my husband had obligations with work, my sister brought me out and treated me for dinner and I had such a wonderful time with her and the kids.

Birthday dinner at Canoodling

I am soooooo soooooo grateful that I have a loving family and truly wonderful friends. Thank you.. It makes my heart fill up and want to burst from love.

"I would like to thank you all from the bottom of my heart, but for you, my heart has no bottom!"

To all of my family and friends out there, I dedicate this song to you:

Birthday Countdown - 1 Week To Go!

My birthday is a week away!! So, have you guys thought of what to get for me for my birthday yet?? Well, think!! Think HARD!! :)

I recently won a RM100 Danai Spa cash voucher as well as 2 movie premiere tickets courtesy of Cinema Online. So, for my birthday, I might just go ahead and enjoy those vouchers and give myself some R&R.. God knows how much I need it! LOL! :)

My body is sore now that I've started my zoomba workouts again.

As for the premiere screening tickets, I haven't picked a movie screening yet. Since the tickets are valid for 3 months, I'm still deciding on which one to watch. X-Men: First Class or Pirates of the Caribbean?? Or perhaps if it's still valid in July, then I'll use it for the last installment of Harry Potter! :) :) Yeah, I love HP. I feel sorry for those who don't get it, that's how much I love it. All I know is, the last movie is gonna be brilliant!!!


Anyways, if there are any of you who want to belanja me makan for my birthday, ring me up!! LOL! There's no shame in asking. Hahahahah!

April Recap: Events, Family, Food and Love! Perfect!

Goodbye, April 2011... Hello, May!!

April was a good month and I hope that May proves to be a good month too, if not better!! :) I love May because it starts with a holiday and it's also my birthday month!! May 19th, people! Remember that!! The day awesome came into the world! HAHAHA!

1st Week of April. April started off kinda rocky -- the first Sunday of the month saw us spending it at the SDMC (formerly known as SJMC) Emergency room.. because Allie fell. Bye-bye $$$$. What money I had to make it up for my husband's forgotten birthday went to the emergency fund.

This is what her gash looks like now!
I also didn't get my mom a birthday present. Her birthday was on the 7th. She turned 55!! :)

Happy Birthday, Mom! 
2nd Week of April. As luck would've had it, my best guy friend, who's an engineer with a local oil and gas company gave me amazing F1 tickets! It was a 3-day pass for 2 people and I immediately jumped for joy!! I passed them on to the husband as a "I'm sorry I forgot your birthday!" gift. Besides, he's a huge F1 fan! :) So to you, "Anonymoose", if you're reading this, thank you AGAIN! :)

Feeling Sick-ish

I have been feeling a little bit feverish today. I think I maxed out my energy source the whole time my mother was here. We went out almost every day they were here and ate a whole lot of wonderful stuff (read: durian)! hahah . Now that they're safely back home in KK, I am left here feeling sick and bloated and exhausted!

I need some major R&R time.. but I don't feel like staying at home either. I think what I need is some time out chilling with my friends, grab some pool cues and shoot a game or two. I used to be good at playing pool. Nowadays, I think a 10 year old can play better than me.

Plus, I really wanna go watch THOR this weekend! EEKS!! :)

Yes, maybe that's exactly what I need! :)

Saturday, April 16, 2011


Dystichiphobia is an intense fear of something that poses no actual danger.

Ever since Allie fell and needed stitches, I've been telling myself I need to get my driver's license ASAP. It really is no big deal.. I know I can drive if I wanted to. The only problem is overcoming my phobia. I don't know whether the phobia stemmed from the accident we were involved in when I was small but I've always had it. I've gotta say, though, the time we were involved in the accident, the medical assistance program in the US at that time was really amazing.

I guess, the problem was made worse whenever I think of one of my fave movies growing up, La Bamba. Remember that one? Lou Diamond Phillips did that biopic of the late boy wonder, Ritchie Valens. The latino singing sensation had always been afraid of traveling in planes -- he always dreamt of plane crashes -- and would rather drive anywhere no matter where his tour brought him.. Until one fateful night that he went on his first plane ride and Valens was killed in a small-plane crash in Iowa -- a tragedy that also claimed the lives of fellow musicians Buddy Holly and J.P. "The Big Bopper" Richardson.

You see I always dream about car accidents and I HATE IT. Although I know that my dreams are no premonition and it's only a reflection of my phobia but it doesn't make it any easier for me.

It really makes me wanna go try those hypnotic therapy where they can get rid of your phobias. Too bad I don't really believe in it.

Perfect Sunday

It's Sunday!! And I noticed that I barely blogged this whole week.. Most of my time was devoted to my tumblr this week. If you're on tumblr, add me! hehe

Anyways, today is Sunday, and it's lazy day at me casa. The kids and I watched cartoons since early morning.. Buddy woke up at 7.30am and we watched Monsters Inc, Emperor's New Groove and now The Little Mermaid. Cartoon marathon Sundays! Just like how I spent my Sundays when I was a kid. For brunch, I made garlic fried rice with fried fish!! YUMMY! There goes my diet. I think I might need help from adapexin-p! :\

The darling husband is working today, but he's taking off earlier because I managed to score him 2 3-day passes to the Formula One Grand Prix at Sepang this weekend. He is a huuuuge F1 fan but he hasn't been to a live race ever since we got married. The fact that I managed to score him the K1 Platinum corner grandstand seats made him super happy.

The seats are the ideal location for F1 fans because that's where the action happens! :) So yeah, looks like I've finally made it up to the husband for forgetting his birthday. The fact that I gave up my ticket so he can bring his friend makes me the super cool wife. LOL! :)

All in all, this Sunday is shaping up to be the perfect day to end the weekend! It could be even more perfect IF I had a sundae right now, though! Diet be damned! LOL! :)

Looking forward to a better week next week! :)  Hope you guys are enjoying your Sunday as well!! :)

Don't Let Me Fall

Last week, I was blogging about Sunday evening blues and this week, I'd have to say I had Sunday afternoon blues. Not because I was dreading Monday, but because I spent my Sunday afternoon at the emergency room in the Sime Darby Medical Centre (formerly known as Subang Jaya Medical Centre, SJMC).

No need for panic... everyone's fine now.

The injured party here was my 3 year old daughter, Allie. Someone mentioned to me that kids are naughty and hyper at this age and it was to be expected. Well, I'm not saying my daughter is an angel, but I can't let her take the blame for this one because it was entirely my fault. :(

You see, it happened after she had her bath. I noticed she had a slight cough and since it was raining hard for like 10 minutes just now and the weather was cold, when she got out of the bathroom, I bundled her up tight in her towel all up to her chin. She did ask me, "Mommy, what about my hands"? Then I said, "it's cold, sayang.. "

So fine. Buddy was on my laptop and he told me he had something to show me while Allie went over to my sister. The next thing I knew, she fell like a tree hearing "TIMBER!", and was flat on her face.

Naturally, she started crying.. not WAILING, just crying a little. My sister was like, "You see!!! You bundled her up like that and she couldn't even break her fall!!!"

I saw a little bit of blood on my sister's hand so I gave Allie a once over. I noticed she was bleeding from her mouth and saw that she bit her tongue a little. Then I noticed some blood dribbling on her chin. So I went to wash her up and gargle out the blood from her mouth. Once that was clear, I laid her down on the couch so I can see the damage.

My sister and I lifted her chin and that's when we saw that the underside of her chin was split open and there was a gaping hole and we could see her little fatties coming out.

So I took out some surgical gauze and tape that I keep handy (for situations like these) and bandaged her up. My sister and I both knew she needed stitches so immediately we got the kids ready to go to the hospital.

Buddy, ever the dramatic one, was like, "OMG!!! Allie, you're going to DIE!!!" That earned him a cold hard stare and a demand for an apology from me.. which of course, he gave.

So yeah, long story cut short. We spent the afternoon in the emergency room to get Allie sutured up.

Here's my little Allie pre-stitches. She was actually calm about it. She was more annoyed that we tried to take her pictures with her chin bandaged up. She claimed she was "not pretty"! *rolls eyes* Vainpot. That's what she is.

My sister got gerberas for the little girl with the big booboo!
I felt really bad about the whole thing and apologized profusely to my little girl who responded with "Mommy, I wanna kiss your cheek!" Awwww.. :)

Anyways, thank God for insurance, I am able to claim the RM1100 bill that I was charged for having a plastic surgeon doing the sutures. SDMC, what do you expect? Oh and for RM1100, I was beyond annoyed that they put on Allie's file, "alleged fall". It wasn't alleged. She fell. Urgh. My daughter falls and they write "alleged fall" as if I'm an abuser or something. I guess it's just protocol and what not, but still. I'm annoyed. To. Bits.

Back home from the hospital all sutured up! 
Soooo for this Music Monday, I chose this song, which I absolutely love listening to, and the title seemed really appropriate for this week's entry. Mommy promises to try my best to catch you every time you fall, Allie... and Buddy for that matter. :)

Enjoy this song, "Don't Let Me Fall" by B.o.B. :)

p/s: I got a lot of calls and sms-es by friends who sent me encouragement and concern once they heard over twitter and I appreciate it soooooo soooooo much. But really, it was quite frustrating that people were sending me, "Be strong for Allie, don't cry". If you knew me, really, you'd know I'm not a panicky person and not one to cry in situations like these. Unless of course it's really really serious. Not over booboos. But still, I really appreciate your concern.

Soak Your Stress Away

Recently, I had the pleasure of staying at the Le Meridian Kota Kinabalu hotel, for one night, after my brother's wedding reception ended. The room was GREAT! We were given the Starwood Preferred Guest Room on the executive floor so it was more spacious than the standard rooms. The husband and kids loved it.. although the kids loved my mom's suite even more. LOL! :) So thank you, Le Meridian!

So after the whole wedding reception was over, a group of us continued the party at the hotel lounge and had something to eat (I had not had anything to eat the whole time running around making sure the event ran smoothly and was STARVING by then). By the time the whole wedding party and crew, including the bride and groom, left the lounge, it was already 2 am and I was BEAT!!

When I went up to the room, I saw the hubs and children already snuggled into bed and soooo wanted to join them. But I was still in my full makeup, hair updo and wedding attire so I thought I'll take a quick shower.

Ever since I became a mother, I am more of a jump through the shower quick and fast kind of person. Most of you mothers may agree with me that we just don't have that much time to have a long hot shower.. what more to say a long leisurely soak in the bathtub.

It's not that I'm unhygienic or I don't like long baths, but it drives me nuts, not knowing what the kids are up to and just hoping against hope that in the 5 mins that I shower, they're STILL stuck on the couch watching Tom trying to catch Jerry or Dora trying to find her way in the wilderness.

It's better when the husband is around so he can keep an eye on the kids while I take a bath. Sometimes it's a luxury just to be able to.. I know most moms just go without a bath some days until their kids are asleep. Don't laugh. True story.

ANYWAYS (back to my story), when I was getting ready to take my shower, I remembered how much my fellow blogger Mariuca LOVES hotel bathtubs and decided to take a cue from her and have a looooong hot soak in the bathtub.

I think I stayed in there until I "pruned" up. :P Okay, honestly, I refilled the bath when the water got cold. LOL! :) When I was done, I could feel my tiredness and stress just ebb away from me and go down the drain with the water and I swear just being in that tub can get rid of acne problems, if you have any, that is.

Oh, it felt soooooooooooooooo GOOOOD!! I have a bathtub back in KK but I hardly use it anymore. I was glad that I did take that long bath even if it meant going to bed at 3.30am. :) Oh and I did manage to snap some pics of the bathroom just because I know Mariuca will get a hoot out of it.

The spacious bathroom. You can have a party of 10 in there! 

 On the right of the bathroom: the huge shower.. 

 On the far left of the bathroom: The deep bathtub.. looks small but it can fit 2. :P 

It makes me want to book a hotel room just for the fun of it. Hmmm.. not a bad idea for a belated birthday celebration for the husband, right?

Just Can't Get Enough

Between everything that's been going on in my life and going around the world........... I don't even know where to start. *sigh*

I know there's no excuse for it. I shouldn't even try to justify it. The guilt consumes me, though.

I just want to stop feeling so damn bad and guilty. I know I can't turn back time and there's nothing anyone can say that will make me feel better about it.

But it has to be said.

I forgot my husband's birthday.

Not a day late. Not two days late. But THREE days after his birthday.

When did I realize it? During Earth Hour.

The kids and I were alone at home while their daddy was at work and I was telling them stories from my childhood and Buddy was asking me how many birthday parties I had when I was a kid. Note that the word "BIRTHDAY" still didn't strike a chord in my severely demented mind. It wasn't until Buddy was asking what I'm giving him for his birthday this year, that the dendrites and neurons and axons and whatevers in my brain started making it's connections.

You see, Buddy's birthday is exactly 1 month AFTER the husband's. So when he asked me what I'm getting for him, my first thought was "Man, I should really start planning, his birthday is LESS than a month away". And THAT's when it HIT me.

OH. MY. GOD!!!

Yes, I literally shouted and it freaked the kids out. They immediately jumped on my lap. Earth Hour darkness, see.

So yeah, I forgot my husband's birthday. I am not proud of myself. Bless his heart that he didn't give me a hard time about it. His "nonchalant-ness" about it all makes me feel even more worse. Smart man, my husband. Although he knows how I WOULD  react IF he were to forget MY birthday.... hmph, don't even. But all he said to me was, "It's okay.. you're sick, you have the kids to think about, and your work, and the house.. so it's okay that you forgot". It's NOT okay. For me. But he just wants me to drop it. *sigh*

I'll drop it for now. I've ranted long enough. So I dedicate this song especially for my husband..

Even if I forgot your birthday this year, I won't forget how I felt about you then, how I feel about you now and how I feel about spending the rest of my life with you by my side.. because I just can't get enough... I love you. You're the best. 

p/s: Speaking of forgetting, I beg you don't forget our friends in Japan and what they're going through. The lives that were lost, their lost homes, broken families and broken spirits. Read more on safe ways to donate to Japan.
