I've been in The OC!

Hey girls,

It's been a few days. As most of you know I've been in Orange County for my grandma's funeral. It was my first time at a funeral; I was even included in the procession and ceremony. In Viet culture, the children have to wear white outfits, and the grand children are given white head we all looked like the karate kid! I can't wait to post some fun pictures my cousins and I took.

Grandma really brought our whole family together, I haven't seen some of my cousins for 2-4 years, and some I just met for the first time! One of my cousins that I just met, recently found a freshwater pearl distributor, so I hope we'll be able to work with one another. =] Pearls look so pretty with Swarovski crystals. I'm SO excited.

I'm in Irvine, CA right, going to spend the day with my cousin Tiffany. She's taking me to get my hair done in Newport, and then we're going to go shop around the Korean & Japanese stores around here. I might have a blog sale with all the stuff I find here, if I can find some good stuff. I know there are some of you ladies, who can't get Korean & Japanese products without paying crazy shipping fees! I'll try my best to look for some good stuff. We'll see!

I leave you a pic of some Geo Duck - Giant Clam Sashimi @ Sam Woo's in Irvine,
I ate the other night ^_^
Geo Duck Clams!!!

I ate at a really nice Japanese Sushi Restaurant last night near South Coast Plaza, I can't wait to upload pics!! I've also had In N' Out burgers lol, Crawfish & Oysters at The Boiling Crab, and a lot of Pho!!
