Last Day Blogging from my Workshop :'(

I'm at the workshop right now just surfing then web and packing up (still). It's 11:06PM (Minh's upstairs studying for his BAT Exam). He's going to be a backflow inspector too now. lol
Lawyer & BAT Inspector, my bf never stop studying! I swear he loves it.

BAT Inspectors inspect the backflow, water system, etc. lol I don't really know much, but I know business and underground sprinklers have to be inspected each year. Each job is about $30-$50. The reason why Minh is doing this is for his dad who is a general contractor. LOL
Minh says being a Lawyer doesn't make his dad happy, but going to the BAT classes & passing the BAT exam will make his dad most proud.

LOL, I can't wait to get to know his family better ^_~

I was just talking with my web developer Moo, I call him Moo (his nickname)

He's so fun to chat with, and a complete genius! I really hit the jackpot by having his expertise on my side & his efforts with developing DSK Jewelry (official website). I can't wait to show it off come October.

He has a lot of connections with high profile companies & entrepreneurs. It's always fun to hear his stories when he shares them with me. Moo & friend Danielle were actually my inspiration for the DSK's Infinity Circle Necklace. (Moo has a strong interest in jewelry). He buys female jewelry whenever he comes across something that catches his eye, and then saves it for the right girl he meets. Isn't that freaking sweet? I wish I had a money to do He's also into collecting Monte Blanc pens. Basically, he's awesomely sweet. His mom is also a big time boss lady in New York. I want to be just like her! lol.

He's usually pretty modest, but he just quite his 9-5 job because he wants to do more with his talent.

In regards to quitting his job,
Moo writes:

"yeah... if you search "NYC web design firm"
the company i worked for is #1"

LOL, what could be better than working for a #1 company in his field??? lol DSK JEWELRY.COM! lol jk jk, DSK is only his side project. But I'm so grateful and thankful to have met Moo. We go back a few years, and I never even considered him when it came time to develop my official site. (Random: I think I'm really obsessed with DSK Jewelry.) Minh says that's all that comes out of my mouth!)

I paid one of my website milestones with him, and this is what he replied (well this was at the end of his email receipt)

"Thank you for the prompt payment and the check was very cute"

lol!!! My checks have purses, shoes, and nail polish bottles on them ^_^

I'm a little sad to move, I spent today shopping for birthday presents for my family.
My sister, mom, and dad's birthdays are all this month!

Dad-Sept 16th! Today! Happy Birthday Daddy!
Julia-Sept 18th turning 17
Mom-Sept 29th : )

I bought my dad a Sony surround sound system, my sister the Wii Rockband set, and my mom a pair of Prada sunglasses ^_^

I hope they stay entertained while I'm gone!

We all played Rockband with the new system hooked up, it was sooo much fun! I'm going to miss this day a lot : ) Glad I can share some fun memories with them before I fly out to my new home.

I can't wait to visit for Christmas and bring a ton of presents! I love buying presents for my loved ones. It makes me happy to give. One of my best friends used to get mad at me because he said I made him feel uncomfortable because I always offered things such as food, drinks, etc whenever we hung out. lol. Maybe I'm just maternal?

You should have seen me at Costco today, I was like a psycho parent hunting for the "HOT CHRISTMAS TOY" haha they were sold out of the Wii Beatles Rockband Set at the Costco in Grandville, so the Costco employee called the Kentwood one for me, and they had 1 left! But it was no gaurantee because someone could have it in their cart. So I drove across town to pick it up for my sister. : ) I knew it would make her happy. (My dad & sister are obsessed with the Bealtles. You don't even know..) lol, my dad (who is Vietnamese) got 99% singing "Something" by the Beatles his first time playing the game!
