Art and Women

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 […]

Bitter Melon Season is Over!

Bitter Melon Season is Over!

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 lights on trees

Christmas in Boston

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 forgot to do laundry before my visit this weekend and I had no clean underwear.

Sacrifices

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. […]

Arguments Galore

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 […]

Starvation: The best cost cutting method

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 […]

jigg Speaks Prada

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 […]

Hating on Boston

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?”
