A Little More About Maki...


Many of you already know that I've been in a bit of blogging funk. But enough is enough. I need to snap out of it. It's time for me to get back to the fun although I still need to prioritize things first, like blogging comes after taking care of my family affair.


I was paying my daily visit to my lovely LBluca77 and found she was playing this ABC game a few weeks back. So, I decided to participate and I'm doing it finally!!!

The Rule:

"If you also want to play the game, leave a comment on this post and I will assign you a letter. You then write about 10 things you love that begin with the letter and post them on your blog. When people comment on your posted list, you give them a letter and the chain continues on and on. "

LBluca gave me "S", so here goes....

1. Sushi/Seafood

I don't know about you, but I love raw fish. Yep, Sushi or Sashimi. I am from Japan, so I grew up eating them since I was little. I can't get enough!!! Name a few interesting things I love to eat: Squid, Octopus, Eel and Sea Orchin. I know, I know. I can hear you say, "Ewwww!" LOl. But hey, I love all the other stuff, too, like Fatty Tuna, Snapper and fresh Salmon.

Also, I love Seafood. When I go out to eat, I usually order seafood on the menu. I love Shrimp, Lobster, Crab and all sorts of fish. I am so happy that I am Japanese where our culture is about eating fish/seafood. I feel so fortunate!!! What about you guys? Do you like it?

2. Sun

I love being in the sun. I am fully aware it is not good for you. Definitely it can kill your skin. But I don't care. I put sunblock and off I go!!! When I see the sunlight shine through the window, I feel so happy. You know the song by Sherryl Crow. {Soak up the sun}? That's exactly how I feel when I am in the sun. Oh, the video is filmed on the North Shore of Oahu, HI.

3. Silly People {that includes me}

I believe in silliness. I love people who know how to smile and laugh and I can say that I am a goof and silly gal. I find happiness in making jokes and making other people laugh. I love silly people and smile is a good medicine!!!

4. Sorbet

I love sorbet, especially during summer. I feel so refreshed!! I love rasberry and peach sorbet. They are simply yummy and pretty to look at...

5. Singing

Ahem... don't we all love to sing? I mean, don't you sing in the shower? I do!!! I am no American Idol, but I find joy in singing. Just give me a microphone and you will find me singing out loud in the Karaoke bar and torturing the people. LOL. But it is definitely a great way to relieve my stress!!!

6. Surf

I have spent good amount of youth in Hawaii. And if you live in Hawaii, you learn how to spend time with the ocean. I am not talking about laying on the beach, but really learn how to enjoy the ocean by surfing. I used to do boogie board and long board. I love the feeling of waves surrounding myself and splashing water all over my face and body. It is just great feeling!!

My oldest daughter Ju Ju has already gone to bodysurf with her daddy past summer. She had the floaties around her arms and caught tiny, tiny waves. I would love for both of my girls to be able to surf and be the ROXY girls. LOL.

7. Surfer on Acid

Sounds like I'm talking about Rave and tripping on something funny. But I am talking about my favorite drink or shoud I say shot? When I go out, I usually just do shots (90% of time) because I can't hold a drink for longer than 10 minutes. My hand gets tired and my patience runs out eventually, so I much rather do shots and get it over with. And it's the best and fastest way to get wasted! (just kidding!)

8. Shoes

Who doesn't love shoes? I mean, don't we all love shoes? I think I can never have enough shoes. My wish list goes on and on forever and endless. I want every single colors and designs of heels, flats and flip flops.

9. Shopping

Guity as charged!! I burned my credit cards before. I swear, I will never do it again. But, I still love going to nice stores and buy some things for myself or my girls or my husband....

10. Sleep

I could care less when I was in twenties. I had no problem going to work after getting only 3 - 4 hours sleep after a fun night. But now? Oh, I will be so grouchy and tired if I don't get enough sleep. I need at least 6 hours which I haven't had it for a while. No wonder why I'm in a funk. I am hoping to get back to my routine and get my brian a good rest!

So that is it - I hope you enjoyed learning about me a little more than yesterday...

Oh, before I forget, I need to thank all of you who have given me the awards!! That's right. I have recieved another wonderful awards from my lovely bloggy friends. And it's not only one, but four of them!!! Thanks Girlies, I am so honored and I feel so much love from you -- Every single one of them means so much to me because it's the symbol that you thought of me. I will heart them:)

***BakerGirl gave me an award a few weeks ago. Thanks honey!! You're one of my oldest blogging friend - I love you!!!

The Guidelines:
1. Accept the award, post it on your blog together with the name of the person who granted it to you, along with his/her blog link.
2. Pass the award to 15 other blogs that you feel are worthy of this recognition. Remember to contact each of them to let them know they have been chosen as recipients.
Now, 15 people is kind of a lot --- so why don't I give this award to anyone who wants it? Take it, my girlies and enjoy it!!!

***my newest lovely-blogging friends - lovely freeTEYme and gorgeous Elizabeth Marie gave me this fabulous award!! Both of their blogs are fabulous with full of candies! Woo Hoo! Thanks so much, sweeties! You both rock!!!

I'll pass this award to the two of my new blogging friends... MICHELL and Dionne They are both lovely ladies and I love their style!!!

***{Diamond}gave me this award - Mom of the Year!!! Aww this award makes me cry! Thank you so much honey!!! I love you!!!

The rules for this award are, as follows:
1) Admit that ONE thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are NO LONGER allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!

I feel awful when I lose my cool with my daughters. I try to be calm and firm, but some times, I find myself raising my voice to my little ones. I hate myself for it. And I am trying my hardest to be level headed.

2)To remind yourself that you ARE a good mom, list SEVEN things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself of EVERY DAY that you rock!

I love...1. their smile. 2. dancing with them. 3. cooking with them. 4. praying and laying bed next to them. 5. hearing them say, "I love you, mommy!" out of the blue. 6. smelling their hair. 7. both of them to death.

3)Send this to FIVE other Moms of the Year that deserve forgiveness and a reminder that they, too, are the best moms they can be!!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you!"

Well, instead of five, I am giving it to eight moms!!!
1. merc3069
2. Carrin
3. NeedSleepy
4. kathy
5. Jenn
6. V
7. Sara
8. Penz

NeedSleepy gave me two awards!!! Actually she gave me the triple award a while back, and... I forgot to accept it. Sorry, girl! But now I'm accepting both and putting them up all together!!! She is such a sweetheart - I love you, woman!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's Day - have a fabulous Monday!!!!
