    All dressed up and no where to go

    So after a year long of growing my hair out, this is what the finale looks like. All it took to go from Chimmy to Chimfro (credit to berna) was a little brushing and a little OSiS hairspray. Everyone thats seen it so far has been surprised and impressed. A lot of people thinks its a wig, and when they find out its my real hair they get quite fascinated by it. The problem was that Saturday night we were suppose to go out to a Hollywood club to have some fun, but the plans fell through, and Joy and I ended up going to Bank Heist in NoHo where…

    One Thousand and Counting

    Last week i reached a pretty big mile stone by getting my 1000th from istockphoto.com.  That marks about $445 in earnings in just over three years.  Not bad for just a hobby, but it still hasn’t reached the price of my DSLR! We’ll see if i can reach that in the next three years.  I hope to have 100 uploads, and get another 100 download photo by next year,

    I am so SMRT

    Check out this sweet shirt we found at the new Simpsons store at Universal Studios.  Its been reported that a new Simpsons roller coaster is taking over the space of the Back to the Future ride.  They did sell Duff, but it wasn’t beer but an energy drink, and they didn’t sell any buzz cola or krusty brand cereal either. We happened to go to Universal Studios just to use our 2fer tickets that we got back in August since it expires at the end of the month.  It was a pretty easy time getting around since there weren’t that many people there.  The weather was super dry because of…

    Kids at Play

    Shane’s been inviting jonathan and i to come down to the city lights skate park on the weekends to have our own private session.  With only a few more weeks until baby Noah pops out we decided to call up a few people and headed out to Santa Ana. The reaction of Jonathan, Marc, and Ben were priceless when they saw the reality of how big a half pipe is.  They honestly were getting scared, but man’d up and hit the park with some serious balls. Martin, Kabir, Jessica, and even Joy from SF came out to do some skating. I made sure to bring my helmet because i had…

    Afraid of Salt

    Ok i have to admit that i’m afraid of salt.  Not in the way that i run away when i see a pretzel, but in the fact that when i’m cooking that a pinch of salt for a vat of soup is about as much as i put in.  I do a lot of cooking on the fly so when i’m seasoning things i tend to under season.  Its not like i don’t have the spices but i can never convince myself that the amount i should put in, is the right about.  I think i have the image of food.tv chef’s just doing pinches of this and that, and…

    Welcome to the family

    The weekend finally came to a conclusion last night, and i really wish i had more time with everyone in town. For Janelle’s baby shower berna and brenna flew in from the eastcoast, and my sister just so happened to be in town as well. I somehow managed to fit in a baby shower, a birthday, two weddings, and a retirement party for my uncle in less than 48 hours. My wallet wasn’t the only thing to take a hit, because i was soooo tired by the time i hit the pillow sunday night. Saturday morning kicked off by a very nice baby shower for baby Noah. Papa Wang was…

    The start of a big, busy weekend

    To say that this weekend is busy, is an understatement.  Jonathan celebrated his birthday a few weeks early to unsure that he beat baby Noah from bursting from Janelle’s tummy. He puked so it was a good start to the weekend.  Hopefully he’ll wear the pads that i bought him so that he’ll decrease the amount of blood he loses on a daily basis.

    Letting it all Hung out

    I think everyone by now knows that the only show that i truly follow is Top Chef. I’m glad to see that Hung won season 3 even at times i thought he was a jackass. The producers of the show probably made him out to be the antagonist of the show, but not as bad  as Marcel or Stephan from past seasons. Even with his brash personality, and elitism, he proved he had the right to be, and he proved it throughout the competition. All the chefs seemed better than last season, but i think season 1 is still the best one. I just don’t see them creating extraordinary dishes…

    Why yes, i do need a butter dish

    I was at ikea yesterday walking around the kitchen area and passed by a butter dish and surprising found that in deed i needed a butter dish. I’ve been pretty much a tub’o butter person my whole life, but now that Joy and I are doing a bit more cooking we’re using the good butter, and do actually have butter just sitting in our fridge in the wrapper. I guess i found it especially amusing after reading a list of “25 Signs You Have Grown Up” earlier that day.  It also happened that i was in Long Beach looking at Condos which also scares me a bit.  My dad was…

    Was that really necessary?

    There’s not much parking out in Santa Monica, so for work i have to park on the street. I don’t really have a problem with it, because its not that hard to find parking. Move to this past Wednesday and as i approach my car i see something on the windshield. As i get closer i noticed my side mirror is bent in, and that the mirror is on the ground. Great, i think, at least they left a phone number one my wiper. Not like my car needs any more problems (auto door locks don’t work anymore). So I get home, and i give the number a call and…
