The Vow my wife made to me!

The Vow my wife made to me!

Letter to Frank:

From The Catburgler…

Dr. Horrible, it’s been an interesting time getting to know you. In the beginning, you were shy and I couldn’t really read you. All I knew is that your very friendly. I couldn’t tell exactly what, but I knew there was something different about you. Over the course of the following months, I got to know you more and started to like you more. Like turned to love and love turned to deep and unconditional love and respect. I remember how unsure we both were then and how confident we are now. We have changed since we met and in the best ways. You lift me up when I’m down, you show me love and respect, your considerate and logical yet love having fun. Your adventurous. When we travel together, we share an insatiable appetite for culture, good food and history. Your quiet and yet enjoy dancing with me to good jazz. When we cook, it’s like we can read each other’s thoughts and create amazing dishes together. We truly bring out the best in each other. Our personalities may be different, our schedules may be really different but at the end of the day, we make time to spend with each other. We show appreciation and gratitude toward each other. We tackle any issue fiercely together. Being married to you will be an adventure; it will have ups and downs, but I know that at the end of the day, as long as we work together, we can handle anything and have fun with life along the way.

These are my promises to you as your wife:

  1. I promise to always love you.
  2. I promise to always dance with you.
  3. I promise to encourage laughter and adventure.
  4. I promise that whatever issue we face, we face together.
  5. I promise to always be the Catburgler to your Dr. Horrible (inside joke)
  6. just like you always are positive for me, I promise to lift you up when you are down and be a positive force for both of us.
  7. I will always be your adventure and cooking buddy.
  8. I promise Dr. Potato and Fig Newton will be encouraged to tolerate each other.
  9. I promise to regularly tell you how incredible you are.
  10. Most importantly, I Promise to always be your friend, your love and your partner in life

Frank, I love you so much and I’m in awe that we get to do life together.



I really enjoyed the letter my wife wrote to me. When she read it to me, I can feel the emotions that she was trying to express to me along the expression of joy her face. The whole time, It made feel happy and proud to be her husband.

Journal Entry – 10312018 – London Trip

Journal Entry – 10312018 – London Trip

Stef and I went to the United Kingdom for vacation and we stayed for most of the time in London. For me, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in London and would consider going back again! I enjoyed using the public transportation system in the United Kingdom as it’s straightforward and reasonably priced. The weather was lovely at times, although it did rain here and there, it did not get too hot as I’m the type of person who does not like the heat so much. All so, enjoyed learning about the history of the United Kingdom and London.

The plane ride from SFO to LHR took about nine hours with Virgin Atlantic. I’ve been in a few economy class seats, but Virgin Atlantic was the most uncomfortable I’ve been in. There’s no real padding on the seat. much less, the seat makes me feel claustrophobic and uncomfortable(Virgin Atlantic, if you’re reading this, you need to invest in more comfortable seats! …. Just saying). The food on the plane is “Ok” at best, but it did fill me up. The flight offers WIFI service and considering that the plane has to use satellite service, the internet service is not too bad. Moreover, I notice that the airline WIFI partners are from other different carriers in the EU. All so, I saw EU versions of T-mobile like T-mobile Poland and T-mobile Germany? Is T-mobile global!?! Anyways, Under economy class seats, I notice that they have international power outlets, and I notice that it was pretty difficult for me to find it, much less see it due to the tight spacing. I had to feel around for the plugin with hands in order to find the correct position to plug in my laptop on. In addition, that outlet is pretty flimsy. The plug on my laptop kept falling out.

I stayed in the Hilton London Bankside hotel. The hotel was nice, comforting, and the staff were quite nice and helpful. The room offers complimentary soda and water. The bed smells clean and fresh. Which I like because I do not want to sleep on a dirty mattress and sheets. The tables and bathroom were clean as well. In the bathroom, their have the little bar of soap, little bottles of conditioner and shampoo. Besides the normal set of towels they have for the guess, They even offer bathrobes as well. The hotel offers a restaurant and bar that is next to the main lobby. I’ve only does breakfast at the restaurant where I got a “Full English breakfast” and super good. Oh, in the restaurant they offer tea and milk for free! All so, at the hotel, they offer complementary blue cheese to us one day, white wine on another, and a small cake for their guest. I have not tried the cake, but the blue cheese was all right.

Stef and I did a few tours together in and outside London. The Harry Potter tour we went on was super awesome! I got to see the behind the scenes of how Harry Potter the movie was made. Stef and I were amazed by how awesome the tour was. I got to see the great hall, the moving staircase, models of the town, and Hogwarts Castle. Oh, they even have the train that goes to Hogwarts and you’ll be able to go inside and see the passenger car that Harry, Hermione, and Ron would stay in for each movie. We did a food tour with a group of people in The Borough Market and it was well worth it. I got to try a lot of great food that London had to offer. I did like the blue cheese, although I discover on a food tour I like this blue cheese called “Stilton blue cheese” (soooo good!!) Stef and I went to Stonehenge and the city of Bath. It was pretty amazing! For Stonehenge as they offer an audio guide about the different spots, theories, and how people lived near Stonehenge. The city of Bath, we walked around and checked out the Roman bathhouse and Bath Abby. In the Roman bathhouse, it had a lot of signs and videos show what parts of the bathhouses were used for along the history of the bathhouse. Bath Abby is a church with gothic design and nice stain glass artwork.

During my stay in London Stef and I got to check out the Ice bar where there is a room mostly made of Ice. They serve you drinks in a large shot glass made of ice. The decor is made out of ice with neo lighting. Though we could not stay in the room too long as the bar only allows a person to be in there for 45 mins max. It seems that most of the shops and restaurants accept contactless payments which were super cool! The hotel gave us a bottom of white wine and I decided to take it home with me. Not sure what to do with it, besides save it if anything else, Christmas gift!?!?! Overall Stef and I enjoyed the trip together in London, and even though I touched on a few things briefly here, I will be more posts talking about more in detail about the different places that we visited.

Journal Entry – 10152018

This month, I completed my psychical therapy for my neck and upper back. It feels sooo… much better and stronger than before. I was giving some exercises to help maintain it. In addition, they gave me a shirt that on the back it says “If broke, return to Apex Therapy.” I’m going to see Dr. Chien in December to follow-up.

Since I could remember, I’ve had Kaiser all of my life, but I decided to switch to Blue Shield. Since I’m using a different medical provider, I’m trying to migrate my old medical records from Kaiser to Blue Shield. I had to fill out the forum with my birth date, medical record number, and what information I want to Blue Shield to have. Which I find it interesting because the options provided were “Last two years” or “Specified” and I was thinking that if I choose “Last two years” that I might get only a year worth of records. Since I have not been with kaiser for a year now and the staff might look at the forum and think “hrmm… OK, I’m going to set the date from Nov 15th, 2017 to Nov 15th, 2018” and I would only get a year worth of records on a DVD.

Last, I’m going to be in London, UK this month with Stef, and really excited. I’m going to be there for a week and I’m going to do a lot of stuff! Like sightseeing, eating (Hello pubs), and not having to worry about work (pss… boss if you’re reading this sorry I deleted all of my emails. JK). A few things that I hope to see is the giant clock tower that looks a grandfather’s clock but bigger called Big Ben, Castles, and Harry Potter. Stef and I did our research on how to get around in London and we got an Oyster card where we can use it to pay for our bus and subway fare and All so, in London they have Uber (Though I’m not a fan of Uber, I like Lyft better) that we can use to get around as well if we can not use the bus nor subway system.
