Happy New Year!

Happy New Year.. and belated holiday celebrations! I know I promised to upkeep this blog, but honestly, I got a bit overwhelmed with activities. With Christmas, New Years, celebrating my Quarter of a Century (25!!) and weekend getaways, there was so much going on. I’ve finally got a chance to sit down and sift through all my pictures.

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Hope you all had a wonderful (and filling) Thanksgiving!

This year, I celebrated with my family and close friends. We filled our bellies with some of the traditional favorites turkey, honey baked ham, and sweet yams with the marshmallows on top. Just thinking about it makes me full!

I am very thankful for many things: all of the wonderful people who have come into my life, the amazing experiences, and most of all the delicious food I’ve gotten to eat. I’m thankful for all the good and the bad.

And to whoever is reading this, I’m thankful for you and your support. It’s the little things like you readers who help give me a positive attitude to keep pushing myself and pursing my goals. Thank you.

San Diego Auto Show and New Years Shenanigans.

On the last Saturday of 2012, I was hanging out in San Diego with Timscribbles team and went to the local Carlsbad Cars event. It’s pretty similar to a Cars and Coffee (locals meet up to display and talk about their cars) that they hold in Irvine, instead Carlsbad holds their event more frequently and obviously in Carlsbad. One of my favorite cars there was a Lotus Elan Spirit because it looked like a cute little kayak.

After the Carlsbad Cars event, we caravanned to the Slaters 50/50  where we filled our stomachs with delicious food and beverages. With our bellies full, the TS team headed over to the San Diego auto show to look at more cars.

The year came and went by so fast. It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating 2012. So, to close out the year and ring in 2013, I spent it with Timscribbles team, P5R (or as I usually call them MCC – Miata Car Club), and a couple of new friends at a Kaus’ place. Drinking, playing card games, and having fake mustaches have never been so fun. It was the perfect amount of shenanigans to kick off the New Year.
