Karen and I went to the MET about two weeks ago. It was a much anticipated trip, for both of us enjoyed art immensely–or so I thought. I know a bit about art history while Karen knows more about technique and movements. You would think that it’s quite a good balance for discussions, but going […]
As jigg’s parents will inevitably become my future in-laws, I have been trying to earn brownie points with them. During a dinner conversation that occurred during the second or third time I met jigg’s parents, I found an opportunity when jigg’s dad mentioned how many kids these days don’t appreciate bitter melon because their parents […]
Christmas has always been one of those holidays that I didn’t celebrate unless I was in a relationship. My parents always thought Christmas was a waste of money and on some years, they would get me and my sister presents. Most of the time, my dad would just put up some Christmas lights on the […]
Over the past six months, I have been leaving behind various pieces of clothing at jigg’s place (essential stuff like underwear and socks) so I don’t have to keep carrying luggage back and forth. jigg would then help me do laundry so I get fresh clean clothes to wear on my next visit. Unfortunately he […]
My relationship with jigg is the longest serious relationship I have ever been in – which at this moment stands at 6 months officially and 7.5 months unofficially. At the age of 24, I still consider myself pretty much a noob as far as relationships go. But I have come a long way (and I still […]
As Karen gets ready to move here and probably spend the rest of her life with me, I can’t help but wonder about the insane sacrifice she is making. She is giving up her New England life to be with me, possibly spending the rest of her life in some suburb type neighborhood in Brooklyn. […]
Like every couple, Karen l and I get into our share of arguments. Unlike other couples, we don’t fight about anything important. In fact, none of it has anything to do with our relationship. I remember one of the earliest showdowns we had concerned copyright laws. I’m all about rightful ownership and she is all […]
Why does marriage have to be a surprise? If you both know how you feel about each other and you both have always had the goal of marriage, then tying the knot is inevitable.
Karen has among a great number of weird bodily dysfuctions like B.O., excessive gas and hair growing out of weird places, has really sweaty palms and feet.
I love going out to buy lunch since it’s the perfect excuse to leave my seat. Wondering what to eat for lunch also takes my mind off the job I hate. Only problem was, lunch around my job is probably the most expensive in the country. I spend between $10-15 on lunch for food that […]
Me? I shop at Gap…when there’s a sale going on – 75% off original price type of sale. Sometimes I feel so fashionably unsophisticated next to Brooklyn Boy. Not that he is prissy or anything, but he has developed an expensive palette for quality clothes. In some cases, that translates to silk ties and custom […]
When I first started dating Karen, I told a really close friend of mine that I was dating a girl from Boston. Her reaction? “Shut up! You’re dating someone from Boston? I thought you hate everything Boston?”
