OK so by pressure from family members and friends and the news. What the hec! I went to the gas store and bought $20 worth of lottery ticket for the Mega Millions this Friday, said to be will be over $600 Million. Well I bought $20 but I gave my wife $5, my parent’s $5 and sister family $5, and the other $5 for me cause I don’t know who else to give to. OK so, the chances of winning is like zero to a million HAHAHHA, If I win, this is what I’m going to do and I even prioritize it.
Paid off this house
Paid off my wife schooling
College savings for kids
Buy a house for my parents

Whatever left for me, I would like a big warehouse where I can do experiment.
I have two friends, 1 recently went back to vietnam and probably already engaged. The other friend is in Vietnam as of this moment, in fact he just message me in facebook chat that he’s in Dai De hotel in HCM city formerly known as Saigon city. The first friend just came back and ask for my opinion on marrying a girl in Vietnam, she’s an accounting, I told him, the success rate of bring the girl in the US is high, the success rate in staying with that girl for more than 3-4 years are low, normally they get the green card or even us citizenship then start to cause trouble and sometime in control of you because she got smarter – However there are also cases where the husband in control of the girl and even don’t provide her freedom to drive a car, go to school, or even have friend – Yes it does happens to many vietnamese girl from Vietnam. For the 2nd friend arrived in Vietnam yesterday stayed at Dai De hotel in Saigon HCMC in Vietnam, he’d been nervous about it, which I think is normal, even in the US, when I got married I was nervous, the nervousness tied to excitement – In just a few days another person come into your life and be part of your life hopefully forever :).
Our family took a trip to Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival. We left about 5AM EST, arrived to Arlington VA Pho 75 restaurant at 8AM, about 2 hours and something drive, but due to the kids I have to drive slow and select safe and smooth route instead of those short cut that weave in and out up and down will make kids and wife get sick. Pho 75 in Arlington VA was great, friendly surface, clean, and best of Pho competitive taste of Pho variety, I got the special with everything, I notice when drinking a lot of this soup while it’s hot, it can make you go pee pee pretty quick heheheh. After that drove the Tidan Basin of Washington DC Cherry Blossom Festival, man it was cold and a bit windy, we found parking after a good 30mins drive around. We took some pictures some film and that was it, too cold to continue walking. So we left and search for parking space for museum visit. It was a good hour driving around then finally paid $11 whole day parking at the 11755 building in 12th street. Then walked all the way to 14th street to visit some historic sites and museum. We went to the national museum, $10 each person, to me, it sucks, but I guess $10 per person can’t ask for much, just a bunch of fishes and creatures not a lot to see, my recommendation, don’t go there 🙂 if you’re thinking of seeing a real aquarium :). Then off the Smithsonian Museum, been there before, it was boring to me, since I’ve been there already, new attraction was the virtual drive, cost $7, didn’t try, I thought it was free, although the museum entry was free :). After that we had small picnic outside the museum on the street, and head off back home, encountered a little bit traffic but it was ok, 2hrs drive home.
Today while working, and my Lync (office communicator) pops up instant message from huy ****, at first I’m thinking of the huy that I used to work with Milpitas distribution spares part for semiconductors equipment 10 years ago, but I could be wrong, so I kept on chatting and at last he said that he is indeed the person I used to work with 10 years ago, now back to working for same company as I am today. He is now a customer engineer, a very good position for travel and nice title and must have nice salary too, compare to me working remotely from home but I doubt my salary is any good, but I thanks god for giving me a job and still be able to work from home remotely, I ask for nothing more. Well, appears huy been doing fine, this guy 10 years ago used to work with me and he’s a gambler, a party dude, and fun talk, but now seems he’s done with those stuff and became a new man. He’s working to support his family and kids education, he’s now in malta new york where ever that is. We began talking about the old days and the people we used to work with what they’re doing and so on. It’s good to know some of us are still doing well after the down turn of the economy.
What a Monday, and it’s kind of over, tomorrow will be another day, another day of what’s left on today’s plate, it’s getting warmer 🙂 heheheh I’m glad that work kept me busy, keeping my mind sharp 🙂 The weather is real nice, my daughter Dahlia want to walk instead of getting ride in the car to the bus stop, like other students their parents are walking them as well, will see. Nyla also can use more exercise as of she didn’t get enough running and yelling the house.
For a while now many Vietnamese men and probably woman as well goes back to Vietnam and married their lovers when they’re still together in Vietnam. That’s not always the case, some Viet Keu from US went back to Vietnam for marriage for money, as of today I heard the price is $35K cash for must be on paper for 4 years or so I thought, I don’t know if woman or men from Vietnam would like to still come to the US, with $35K I rather stay in Vietnam it’s a lot better opportunity to make that $35K into more money, furthermore I don’t what will they do when they come to the USA. I’ve been in Vietnam it’s a lot of fun and a lot more opportunity back there. Some Viet Keu here in the US goes back to Vietnam for marriage, due to arranged marriage. Some went back to married because of true love, in this case I believe is with my friend, wish him best of luck. Recommend for anyone going back to married Vietnamese girl, try to find traditional girl, unless you’re a party person then go for city girls :). Well anyhow, I also sent some DVDs music video for him to take to my in-law family to watch, Vietnam don’t sell Thuy Nga Van Son Asia openly but you can find it yes.
What’s your plan for spring break? yes spring break is coming soon, for students, and off course you as a parents might have to take some time off to getaway with our children on a spring break trip. No matter how high the gas price is, I bet that people will still drive far away for fun. I heard the nation average might reach to $4.75 by summer, but I guess that’s just speculation, who knows. Driving is fun, get a chance to catch up with your children family or friends, with today’s technology, GPS, can get you to where you want to go pretty easy, the rest is up to you. So – What’s “Best Cars for a Spring Break Getaway”?
Virginia Beach, Va. Mazda CX-5; Savannah, Ga. Ford Mustang GT; Myrtle Beach, S.C. Volkswagen Passat TDI; New Orleans Subaru Impreza WRX; Sedona, Ariz. Audi A4 Avant; Austin, Texas Dodge Durango; Orlando, Fla. Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon; Tijuana, Mexico Ford F-150 SVT Raptor; Miami Audi R8 Spyder; Los Angeles Porsche Panamera S Hybrid. There’s only one spring break per year, and so enjoy, you work hard and need to play hard also, get a fun car if you’re single, get a nice SUV if you have kids married family. Enjoy Spring Break 2012 🙂 Below are top cars you would want to consider renting 🙂 rated best, watch for gas mileage if you’re worrying about gas money, which you shouldn’t because it’s a vacation, spend some money 🙂
So it’s week end, I stopped by visited mom. She went fishing with my sister last night and a few other people, they fish until 9PM but caught absolutely nothing. So people, even though it’s spring time, not quite fishing season yet even if you search online for fishing spot good or bad hard to say, secret or not doesn’t matter much 🙂 you think you know secret fishing spot, if you know then there are chances other knows that spot as well. Bottom line, too early for fishing season, maybe better luck on a boat out to sea. Philadelphia I don’t think have any good fishing spot, it’s an industrialize area probably a lot of polluted dirty water, although maybe the rain and snow might have washed it.
