#74- Colorful life

Since my friend, Keasha sent me an email regarding a book "No Dream Beyond My Reach" (she is an editor), I became a friend with Dr. Sopheap Ly who is an author of this book. (If you want to know about this book, please read my blog on May 13, 2009.)

Today, I finally met her in person at her twin daughters’ one year birthday lunch party.

Wow…twin girls are soooooooo cute!!! They were wearing pink and green dresses and there were huge two pink Barbie dolls birthday cakes!!! And a lot of Indian food!!! (The party held at the Indian restaurant in O.C.)

What a nice to celebrate the first year of the cute twin girls life with wonderful their family and friends.

********
I met many nice people at this party and I felt like in the "Grey's Anatomy's world"…because there were many doctors and interesting episodes.

Sopheap is an amazing woman, as I wrote about her and her book on May 13, 2009 my blog, she and her family were caught up in the national nightmare that overtook Cambodia in the 1970s the takeover by the Communist Khmer Rouge. During the four years, it's estimated more than one and a half million Cambodians were killed included her father. Now Sopheap is an assistant professor of medicine UCSD Medical School/VA Healthcare System, San Diego.

Regarding the Killing Fields of Cambodia, her sister told me today, "I don’t want to talk about it, I am not ready…" But, Sopheap did it and she is helping American people today, so nice to see someone like her, a great mother and a success career woman who contribute to the world/society. Sopheap…she is a brave woman!

********
Another brave and beautiful woman at the party. Aretha is a former Miss Cameroon and a doctor in Washington D.C. She is in Sopheap’s book which I read it, so I felt like I already knew her. Wow…she is really beautiful inside and out. She gave me an advice for my health and exercise today. I told her that I want to write some books & scripts about the women who are an independent & enjoy colorful life and I would like to make many people happy with my work (books & scripts.) She is one of my ideal women for that. Wow…after she married and during pregnant, she studied to become a doctor. So nice story. She should write a book or make a movie like Sopheap.

Aretha told me, during the surgery, she always having fun with music and conversation for optimism surgery. Wow… sounds like real world of "Grey's Anatomy".

********
I sat at the table with Loan who came to this party by herself (her husband who is a doctor couldn’t make it because of his work.) Loan is also a career woman who is a realty broker. She is from Vietnam and we talked about many topics, especially Asian countries things…China, Korea, Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Taiwan…South and North…women and men…we had a great conversation at the table. We ate and talked a lot.

********
Sopheap’s husband (also a doctor) is so sweet. He was walking around the party room and filming us.

Oh…twin girls made my day. They are like Angel!

********
Oh…I met Angel…I mean, I met a Christian singer, Angel at the party. She is also Sopheap’s friend. Thank god…I asked her name three times!!! OMG…what wrong with me???

"What is your name? Angel, nice to meet you! Wow, you are a singer? I look forward to enjoying your song later!"…

"Ah...what is your name again? Sorry…Oh…Angel, right! How could I forget such a beautiful name! Stage name or your real name?"

And then…after her performance, I met her in the restroom and… "It was a nice song. Can I mention your name in my blog? Oh…your name is…right… Angel!"

OMG…I was not drinking, I just had two cokes (Of course…soda! ha ha ha!)…I am bad for remembering names…but today’s my memory was really bad…three times asking someone’s names!!! …that’s bad…sorry…Angel…

Anyway, her song was so sweet. When she emails me about her website, I will introduce her website on this blog. Her name is Angel, by the way!

********
There are many people who have colorful life. I wish I can write about that beautiful & colorful life and make many people happy from that.

Have a wonderful weekend to you.
