{TV Review} Glee season 4 premiere the new Rachel


I am not a really Glee fan, just be honest with you. At least I am not really crazy for collecting every character's hats, posters, buying their album and their T-shirt stuff like that Or follow them everywhere.  But, I did watched a few of their show and their Glee 3D Concert Movie in the paste, I enjoyed it.  I like a couple of their songs, and honestly, sometimes I feel some of their songs in Glee are better than the original performers.

{Woman} Rihanna & Chris Brown.

Rihanna is a very popular and well known international singer.  Being famous in such a young age brings her paparazzi everywhere.  I love her songs, and I think she has such a unique voice that nobody has the same voice like hers,  but not until I watched Oprah Next Chapter that Oprah interviewed Rihanna and made me get to know Rihanna a little bit closer.

Massage Envy_Facial Part

My family member joined the membership and they have credit they didn't use it, so I went over Massage Envy and I did their 1 hour Facial programme, and the service was excellent, and after the treatment, my face feels so so so good.  I recommend everyone to join or at least to try their first trial session, they have affordable price and excellent services.  I definitely will do my Facial once a month.

I always like to eat at PEI WEI, it's an Asian cuisine restaurant, providing not just only Chinese food, but a little bit Thai, a little bit Malaysian, a liitle bit American flavor all mix together and become American Asian Diner.  


So PEI WEI is not your typical Chinese food restaurant in any China Town.  Here is the overview from PEI WEI's Home Page :
