Just thought I'd post this here. Someone asked me to share what I thought about true luv and how I want to be treated in a relationship. So here goes... O0

Hello mister. Hello. How are you doing? I hope this email reaches you when you are well rested and with the sun fill blue skies.

So you want to know how I feel about luv? Or you want to know what my definition of true luv is? I'm very much a hopeless romantic (I watch enough heart wrenching Korean/Chinese dramas to dream about what luv should be. However, I am rather practical and a realistic at heart. So as much as I may watch and root for the ugly duckling of Cinderella's to get the charming and successful prince, I know it's "just a dream." Reality doesn't work that way.

True luv? As I've said before, I believe in the concept of luv but I truly have not experienced it myself. So in ways, it isn't "real" to me yet. I also don't believe in the titles. What constitutes the title of boyfriend and girlfriend? Other than a ceremony and a legal documentation, what constitutes a marriage? Some ppl let the title define them and they give into the role of their title. They do things they think boyfriends, girlfriends, husbands, wives are expected to do but maybe they really don't want to. Personally, it's not sincere or genuine then.  Again, I am someone who doesn't like to put expectations on others however, if I see their true actions executed in wanting to be with me, remembering things about me, going out of their way to do things for me (holding the door for me, ordering food for me that I want, holding my hand, or getting something out of my hair) shows me not only that they genuinely care but that they pay some attention to me. I don't want to be waited on or smothered but it's nice to know that someone is thinking of me and my well being. That someone thinks the world of me....that I can be happiness for someone. That is a nice feeling. I think that is what true luv is. Letting someone in while wanting to be the best of friends with your partner and returning the same respect, support, care, and luv back. I too, would luv a relationship when I can connect with someone so well that we don't have to say a word to each other...just one look and we both know what the other person is thinking. Or if we are talking that we can literally finish each other's words. I also think having the same sense of humor is also helpful. It adds to the chemistry that is already there. Lastly, I think no matter what, true luv is purely unconditional. Ultimately though, I have also learned that true luv is when you are selfless. It means whole heartedly luving someone and wanting them to be happy---even if it means w/o you.

How do I want to be luved or treated? In all honesty, if if all of the above is true in my partner then this person will be charmingly honest with me and respect me-all of me, my physical appearance, my personality, my intelligence, my values, my emotional and spiritual well being as well as my flaws. I don't need sweet words in my ear. If anything that can be rather annoying and irritating if it is excessive. I'm not a girl that needs to be swept off my feet. I'm pretty independent so I don't need a lot of praise. Maybe just a helping hand (especially in high places since I'm so short LOL ;D). They will be sensitive to my emotions but also know when to give me a kick in the butt when I am feeling unmotivated and/or down. They will know how to support me when I can't find the drive to get out of bed or cheer me on when I lack the confidence. I don't want them to go out of their way to do things for me but at least find ways to keep my attention. They will battle the struggles in my life with me and be there to celebrate when I have successes and will also welcome me as their cheerleader and my support during their tough times. They will also have me by their side to share the joy in their accomplishment s. I'd like someone who just doesn't want to be my luver but wants to be my confidant and most importantly, a companion.  However, as much as we want to be together we will also understand we need to have our own space and time apart as well. I think this is important. It's not to say that we have to physically stay apart but having our own alone time, time with our own friends, or doing hobbies separately is important. 

Deal breakers for me are liars and cheaters (I see them as the same thing bc if you're cheating then you're already lying). I also do not care for men who are disrespectful (especially to women, children, and the elderly) and I don't like ppl who use derogatory language.

Thank you for sharing what your views are on true luv and how you want to be treated in a relationship. It was nice to know. I feel you are rather more romantic than I am. Just an observation. LOL ;)


Might sound like a lot and maybe it might be complex...whic h is y I'm still single; but I'm not complaining. When u ask, I simply gave the answer.  8)

Kthnxbye!

Urgh, so suffocating.

Anyway, the niece's third bday was celebrated this weekend. It was hot so eventually we brought out an inflatable kiddie pool. It was a small party but dayem....we were all exhausted.

Anyway, just three more days and my nephew will b here! So excited but I'm not looking forward to my aunty duties for this next week n a half.

The nephew is now to be 5 and a half months. He's drooling like no other and just learned how to roll over. He luvs his jumper n enjoys conversation. Always smiling if someone is talking to him. Otherwise, just poops and pees and cries for now.

The niece is sick today. I came home to hear her mom say that she puked three times today. Had to run to the store to get some meds for her while nyab gave the nephew a bath. Yep, aunty duties.

Otherwise, my mom has been in the hospital for three weeks tomorrow. Mom had a stroke a few weeks back. It was scary n I was the one that found her n her car. Well, she was honking her horn like crazy bc her left side was completely numb and she could not move. She dropped her phone and keys so she couldn't call us. It was about 7:30pm. Luckily, she had good instincts when she was at her garden (which is about 30 min drive away from r house) as she felt her body was kind of off and was scared so she came home; parked her car and then it happened. She was so scared she pissed herself. I got her out but didn't really realize what had happened until I had to leave her on the curb bc I couldn't get her up over it since she couldn't move her left foot. I didn't want to drop her (cause I almost did). Nyab was inside with the kids and she can't even open a jar of chili oil so there was no way I could ask her to come help me with mom. We called the ambulance and got her to ER. Luckily enough they said that we caught it early and no operation was needed. She's been in rehab for two weeks now with OT n PT. Although she still is working on walking (she hasn't quite been able to put a lot of weight on her left foot) she at least has made improvements in getting strength back in her left arm and leg. She's a fighter but so negative and pessimistic. It's toxic being with her every day but I'm her daughter and despite our luv-hate relationship I am one of the few who is rather empathetic to her n her needs. I wished my other siblings would be more considerate.

Anyway, times like this is typically stressful but I know she will be OK and make it through. I am learning to be a better person n more appreciative person from this experience n hopefully, a better daughter.

Urgh, how long will he keep telling lies or spinnin this story of his? I mean, it's sort of entertaining but at the same time-eh. G k.  ::)

The big bro is back in town to pick up his car and visit mom. After the hospital visit today we drove out to Rochester to have dinner. Dinner was eh too. Too many ppl so food was fresh n even though the variety is more than what we can find n r dinky small city here...they took forever to replenish dishes and/or if u didn't watch carefully-u'd get nothing but "old" food or the stuff no one eats (the veggies or plain low mien).

Mom is supposed to get discharged on Tuesday next week but she has a UTI and other things r all whack so most likely she won't be home anytime soon.

I always knew my big bro was her fav....but I really saw it for myself two days ago. He really can do no wrong n her eyes. I know if I said or did anything like him she'd tell me I'm a b|tch n completely throw shade n fury at me. But nope, my brothers can do no harm n she doesn't bat an eye or frown but tells me I'm not only the worst daughter of hers or human being ever. I am not trying to win any brownie pts whatsoever w her but at least acknowledge that I am human n I, too, have feelings n emotions. Afterall, I am a reflection of u.

Update...my mom did not come home today. The dr wanted to keep her for another day or so due to low sodium and to have another CT scan done just to double check. We had a meeting today with some of her care team about home care for her when she does get discharged. Family. Talk. Decisions. Stuff.

I really need to make time to study my Korean and review my Chinese more. I've been putting that off for the longest time. But on the flip side....I kind of been "studying" Korean with all the shows/movies/dramas that I watch. O0

At the end of the day...I guess it really doesn't matter. No, I don't matter. So y do I even bother? ???

Toxicity is real. Trauma is real. Abuse is real.

Guess, I am not tho.  :'(

What a long day! I have no regrets.....on ly wished I can have more patience-with everything.

Anyway, mom came home today. It's been quite the transition for everyone but we'll be OK. With time we'll all adjust and see where we need to make other accommodations .

Now I finally have some time to myself. Not gonna watch my kdrama tonight. Running Man it is!

Didn't get to watch RM.

Another long day. I'm up in arms n feel like a lost abused puppy. Lost? Sometimes I feel like a stray too. Or r they the same?

U said u came back for me? Is that pity? Maybe a form of luv...n a weird way I appreciate that but n another way I wished u would have not bothered to think of me n such a way. Things may have been very different but at the same time it may have been best--but we'll never know will we?

Do you ever feel like you just want to run? Literally just get up and go and have absolutely no worries, no care n the world, n just like that-fly? I hate feathered things or birds in general but I envy that they can fly and soar with the wind against their face/feathers n at least feel free.

I can't believe I haven't come to rant or put thoughts down for almost a year (about 8 months).

Work is work-nothing has changed there. You can say that's a good thing. If anything, I am glad I'm no longer in a toxic environment n my supervisor actually appreciates me for once.

Things at home have been OK-for the most part. The kids r growing n I have a lil mini me-although I don't think her mom likes that she tends to be more like me-n the nephew is finally walking-still kinda drunk like, I call it drunken milk walking-but at least he's walking. He's also a bit colicky so he sticks mostly to his parents n is always crying but he does like his aunty when mommy n daddy r not around as well.

Mom hasn't been the best n if anything, very defiant. We can't reason w her anymore so now we just don't bother nor say anything. Regardless, we r always the "bad guy" so we've just given up. In levels of safety, it's bad and it is dangerous but again, she won't listen n is too stubborn. We could put her n a facility (what I am sure my nyab hopes for ::) but that's not going to happen) to ensure that everyone is safe but then we would be the low-life ungrateful children who didn't luv r mom.

J4 weekend, my sis n her fam came which prompt my older bro n two cousins n their fam to all come n visit together. It was nice to c everyone-the house was packed-but it was a lot of fun seeing all the kids (for some it was their first time meeting). If anything, we also learned to will need to make a trip out east for my sis and BIL's npe laus party in early summer. I'm excited n I know others r too but I just hope it will be a nice trip/time w as lil to no drama as possible. Is it bad to say that I hope my dad n his wife don't make it? I mean, we all r skeptical of them attending already since they've not shown up for anything already in the last two yrs anyway (funerals, weddings, etc.).  :dontknow: Guess we'll have to wait n find out eh.

So, I have had a TT for maybe two yrs now but literally didn't do anything on there the first yr. Thanks to the last yr n being bored n addition not being able to really post on YT (editing just sucks) I prefer the TT platform with shorter vids. It's also a huge rabbit hole-yeah, u can def find me scrolling for hrs in bed regardless of morning or night.  :2funny: I don't post anything outrageous though. Some food/mukbangs, vlogs n vids of my aunty time/life, clothing/makeup hauls, but I mainly wanted to share vids about the HMoob language (which I started to do on my YT). However, this past yr was overwhelming for me n a lot of areas of my life n I started a "Diary of a HMoob Daugther" series. Just my personal rants from my experience of being a HMoob daughter. Granted, the experience is of mine thus, may not resonate w everyone-that's OK-but hopefully, others know they do not feel alone n the space of being just that-a HMoob daughter.

Anyway, if ur reading this-thanks for "checking-in" or for being nosy.  :D O0 Kthnxbye
