This is a personal blog. I am not affiliated with Costco in any way.
But, we needed a place for Costco shoppers to say hi.
I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

Salute to Single Men in the World



Here's for all the single men in the world

I never go out on Saturday night. (any night of the week for that matter).  I have things to do.  I am busy.

It was a Saturday night 10pm when I started to get ready to burn midnight oil.

I took a shower and went out for a quick shopping. I went to Ralphs, Del Taco, and a donut shop.  I wanted some donuts to go with my coffee.

I brewed 100% Kona coffee at 11pm.  I hope to stay awake all night and get things done.  I have a lot of items on my to-do list.  I'll be working all day tomorrow as well.  I work more during the weekends then I do on weekdays.  Weekend is the time I focus on my own business (and a secret project).

Here's my salute to all the single men in the world.
Nobody gives you credit for what you do.  But, your days will come (I hope)...

Mental Note: Clean up coffee area

It's now past 8:00AM Sunday morning.  I think I'm going to rest now.

* 21st, 23rd package of the year 

I felt like Christmas today.  I forgot what I bought, so I didn't know what's supposed to be in the packages.  It was like me sending myself a mystery gift from the past.

2 mini flash lights & 2 flash cables.  They are all work related items. Those mini flash lights are super bright.. amazing technology.

Costco Shopping - March 19, 2009



* Today's Costco shopping: 12th time this year, 2nd time this month 

I am always busy.  I mean super busy...

Right after work, I had a meeting with my customers at Agoura Hills.  We had a nice talk for 1 hour.  The event was booked and they cut the check on the spot.  When I meet customers, I have a high ratio of closing the deal. Sometimes I book events without meeting them.  Sometimes customers send deposits from Japan, Canada, New York....

After the meeting, I had a very short time to shop at Costco in Westlake Village.  I arrived there 8:15pm, 15 minutes before they close the entrance.

I went through my shopping list very fast.  I bought 2 bags of Starbucks Coffee.  I am going to give one bag to my neighbor. 

You see, I enjoy giving things to my neighbors.  I love watching people feeling happy because of what I do for them.

I spent less than $70.00 today (used 3 coupons).

I came home around 9pm and I fixed a quick dinner.

Happy St. Patrick's Day



* 19th package of the year

I wore green today. This is very unusual, because I never wear green for St. Patrick's Day.  I don't know... I felt like wearing green today.

Look, I even drank a cup of green tea (Jasmine).  I often use 2 bags in a cup for extra kick. 

Green Sleave, Green Tea

Story about my Homer Simpson mug.  First, I saw them at Linens'n Things for $25.00 each.  Then, a few months later, I went back to the same Linens'n Things.  I found 4 of these mugs at clearance bin for $5.00 each.  So I bought all 4 of them.  This quickly became my favorite mug.  The picture fits perfectly when I come to work every morning (although I love my work).

Swiss Army Knife

My mini Swiss Army Knife came. It's got a tiny LED flash light.  This can come in handy at the weddings.

My coworker has the same knife.  He often helps me openning my packages with his knife.  So I figured, why not get one myself.  It was under $20.00.

Lunch - Salad & Anchovy Pizza



When I ordered an Anchovy Pizza, the cashier said "You are the first person ordering anchovy in 2 months".  So, I told her "Make that 2".  Because my coworker was getting a Double Anchovy pizza.

"How do I explain the beauty of anchovy?  How do I make them understand?" I asked to my co-worker.  "I don't know, dude... start a website" he replied.

We talked about anchovy pizzas while we were eating 'em. 
I told him how much I enjoy the chalky, meaty texture of anchovy. 
My coworker told me about the best anchovy pizza he ever had.  That's right, we are a couple of deep thinkers.

Mm... good stuff.


For lunch, we only get one trip to the salad bar with this bowl.  So, naturally, we pile 'em up high. 

I quickly learned that Sprouts goes on top.  That bowl of salad could have gone a lot higher but I didn't want to embarrass my coworker.

Costco Shopping - March 10, 2009 - $100.32



* Today's Costco shopping: 11th time this year, 1st time this month 

Today, I went to Costco on my lunch time. It took me exactly 1 hour and 2 minutes to go to Costco, shop, get gas, and come back to work.

I am beginning to like lunch time shopping.  It gives me luxury of free time after work. 

I think I'm going to do laundry on lunch time as well.  Of course, I cannot do laundry in 1 hour.  So, I'll have to take 90 minutes lunch.  I'm gonna try that tomorrow.

I bought 2 more short sleeves shirts.  I have about a dozen of these shirts now.  I love them.

I am loving that Stir Fry Vegetables.

Anyway, I spent $100.32.  (Shopping $74.83, gas $25.49)

Unscented Please



(Oh boy, here I go..)

How come so many deodorants, after shaves, and lotions have stupid smell to it?  Why is it so difficult to find decent unscented aftershave?

I don't like the smell of every single aftershave in the market.  I don't care if they are from Channel or Old Spice. They are all disgusting.  I hate 'em.

I don't want to smell like a grand father.  I don't want to smell like a college kid who likes clubbing a lot.

They call it "Cool Breeze", "Sports Scent", and whatever... that doesn't make sense.  Why advertise your armpit smell?  Everyone knows that smell is coming out from the pits of your arms.  That's disgusting.

Do they have such smell convention for feminine care products?  if I was a woman, I would hate my tampon to smell, period (no pun intended).  I don't want anyone to associate the fragrance with my vagina.  That's horrible.

I believe "No Smell" is way to go.  Am I the only person thinking this way?

unscented deodorant
This morning..
