the extent to which Michael Jackson's death has affected our world is impressing and very very understandable. last night around 9pm, all lights went out by my house (in L.A.) and it was all to distract people from waiting to see MJ's body being carried away from the coroners building (about a mile away from my house!) that says a lot about the well deserved attention the king of pop is getting...
i was surfing the net today and found this beautiful tribute to the king of pop that was done by a group of Phillipino inmates and was just speechless....WOW!!! apparently this isn't the first time...they had done something similar back in 2007...props to these guys....what an amazing job!!!!

a knot in my throat...R.I.P. Michael Jackson...


...not much can be said during moments like heart, like the heart of others, is sad. the king of pop is gone in body but will live FOREVER in spirit through his music! he is truly the soundtrack to many lives including mine...i love you Michael! 



happy monday!

the highlight for this weekend was yesterday when i took my little brother to meet some of his favorite pro skaters: p.rod, theodis beasley, and other plan b skaters!!! the event took place at the ritchie valens recreation center in pacoima and my little brother was sooo amazed and had the time of his life! i had fun meeting the guys too!!!! they were awesome and super down to earth!!! Nike SB team was there with lots of giveaways too for the kids!!!!!
seeing these guys skate live reminds me of how talented they really are! and the fact that they give back to the communities that need it the most makes me appreciate them even more! even p. rods dad was there to support, and of course my mom and i were there to take a picture with him! we love paul rodriguez!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

a perfect way to finish off the weekend...with the fam bam!


LAKERS! i work literally like down the street from the staple center and my co-workers and I walked to the LAKER parade and i was lucky enough to see Kobe ♥ from really close!!! I must say, i felt a little silly when i realized my legs were shaky! lol...i am in LOVE with the Lakers and this was an amazing experience! (p.s. notice the puppet hand on kobe's shirt! it has the 4 rings!!! that is soooo amazingggg!) I LOVE LA!!!!
