Wouldn't it be cool to live amongst giants?

For 10 seconds you can feel like that when you step into Times Square and face the 29 foot statue of a sailor kissing a from the famous VJ picture captured 65 years ago. It was absolutely awesome to see it amongst the crowded block of Times Square.

oh and it helps to have comfy cool outfits for the gym.

I've got 2 new shorts, 2 bras, 2 tanks and a new bag from Lulu and I feel great working out in them. No more wedgies while I run, no more smelly clothes post-gym, no more stickiness, no more hot flashes from smothering clothing. I should unsuscribe from the Lululemon newsletter..they have new things that come in weekly and I just want it all!

-Confessions from Shopaholic H

This just in!

I recommend these items for running/working out:
Come to NY to buy them. They are the same price in Canada but minus the taxes!

These shorts have vents everywhere so it feels like you're wearing practically nothing. Totally breathable.

The support for this bra for running is impeccable. I don't got big titties but for those who have, these will probably make sure your boobies stay in place. They are made small so worry not if you've got to try on a larger size.

The design of this tank is just plain sexy, the color is popping and it has great stretch and support.

In the name of clothes!

Since I signed up for the gym, I have, to my surprise, been consistently going at least 4-5 per week for the past month! I mix it up with treadmill, spinning, swimming, intense rowing and sometimes that stupid elliptical and maybe a few misly reps of dumbbells but better than nothing lifts. I was the anti-gym chick. I prefer group classes where someone's forcing me to do something and forcing me if I don't do it..I prefer dancing and outdoor activities but I was simply not getting enough exercise ever since I left Taiwan. "I hate the gym. I hate the gym. I hate the gym!" I would say but always envy those who have killer bodies from results of disciplined visits to the gym. So here I am, going to the gym religiously and getting back into a pool again as a lovely bonus, hoping to fit back into my size 27 Paige jeanssss one day and loving wearing tight shizzles again.

Here I am, at my skinniest I think back in an underweight 112 lbs...although it wasn't due to exercising but to natural cycles of life but still..lookit those bones!

I don't want to go back to that weight ..I just want to drop ten pounds to fit back in my jeans! And losing 10 lbs won't even get me close to 112 lbs. What the heck have I been eating for the past two years? Fat blubbery seals??

Gosh, why the f am I updating my blog when I have a zillion things to do! Those cells ain't going to grow themselves Hsin!
People are wearing scarves in the lab today..No likey the AC?

Seeking the most delicious ramen in town...

Totto Ramen is up there so far in my fav ramen in town....the broth is creamy, flavor-licious, healthy I am sure, no msg so you won't die of thirst after your meal...

I wanted the spicy ramen but I decided to try their original flavor first before venturing out..but I ordered a side order of spicy bamboo. I should have known it would kill had 5 pieces of chili indicating it's level of spiciness but I thought they had something on the menu that was 10 chilis so 5 shouldn't be too bad.

Downside is that they seat 20 people so even at 9 pm , there's going to be a line up...however, you wait no more than 10 minutes before you food arrives.
