    Captain EO Tribute

    We Are Here To Change The World Since the death of Michael Jackson i’ve been waiting for Disneyland to re-release Captain EO because what money minding corporate entity would let this golden opportunity slip by? On Tuesday Disneyland finally opened Captain EO back in its original glory plus a little extra. The 80s were in full effect, and i really felt like i need to go buy a T&C t-shirt and maybe some LA Gear sneakers. Last night i drove down to Cerritos after work because my mother wanted to take Joy out for her birthday and since it was the only night it wasn’t suppose to rain we thought…

    234 and loved every bit of it.

    Home made Rad Na Since i turned 30 i figured that i should go see the doctors to get a physical and see where i stand in life. I initially thought that i would try to fake the funk and eat healthy for the two weeks leading up to the exam but at the last minute i went all out with a bit of a bacon fest the weekend before so that i could get a real time status of my health. Overall the doctor said i was fine, but probably could use some more exercise and just to watch what i eat. Well after the blood work came back…

    Dessert Course

    The final surprise that i had for Joy’s birthday was a RSVP at Hatfields who recently took over the Red Pearl Kitchen location. Earlier this month i got word from twitter that they had just opened so i just on opentable.com and made rsvp for two. They kept the big window into the kitchen, and we had front row seats to watch what all the chefs were up to.  Sometimes you forget of how much of an experience eating like this, because each course is presented so nicely, and even with just four courses (plus an amuse bouche, and extra chocolate at the end) takes two hours to finish. By…

    Last of the 20s

    Joy’s 30 @Boulevard3 02.20.2010 Joy is creeping up on the three decade mark this week and so we celebrated with her friends on Saturday night in Hollywood. Joy and no faith in my abilities to plan her party, but i pulled in through behind her back. After a few days of checking on where to go, i booked bottle service at Boulveard3  and it turned out great. We had a big space next to the dance floor and the hosts were very attentive except for the time when i was going to buy another bottle, but ended up not getting it because they weren’t to be found. The host even…

    NBA Trade Machine

    The NBA trade deadline finally passes with a flurry of deals that ends up making the rich richer, the poor with more cap space and some surprising moves for some secondary teams. This time of year is the funnest during the regular season because it gives hopes and lets people dream of the possibility of the ultimate since Batman and Superman. I know around the office there was constant fervor about what the Lakers were going to do (trading bynum, sasha, even kobe) and what the lesser teams were going to do to clear cap space to get ready for this summer’s free agent list of LaBron, Wade, Bosh, Boozer,…

    AYCEKBBQ

    My cousin Billy came down for San Jose to do some work for his company, and invited Joy and I out for dinner last night. He was staying across the street from the Fox Hills mall so we had to take to Manna to eat massive amounts of korean bbq. I guess i’ll have to start today on lowering my cholesterol as i got my physical and blood work done on Monday, and everything came back slightly high. Not to the danger level, but probably after last night’s gluttony i’ll have to stick with oatmeal and fish for the next few weeks. At least until our trip to Utah in…

    Was something happening this weekend?

    Sure it seemed that it was a big weekend for everyone, well except for Joy and I. Compared to everyone else’s weekend you would’ve thought that we stayed in bed for two days straight, but really we just did our normal thing. Saturday we went back to the scene of the crime, meaning the first place Joy and went on our first “hang out” three years ago at Temescal Canyon. After a few weeks of gloom and rain the sun came out and brought everyone out of their slumber. I didn’t think we had a chance to make it all way around the loop, but somehow we managed to get…

    Food Trucking It

    The office has been on a Food Truck hunt for the past two days for lunch. I’ve stumbled upon a few trucks in the wild but this is the first time we actively searched out for the craze of 2009. If you don’t know what its all about it started off with a Korean chef getting a typical Roach Coach and hitting the road with his own version of Korean Tacos. They get the word out of their locations by word of mouth and by 2009’s other biggest trend twitter. Now besides Korean tacos you can get sushi, cupcakes, frozen lemonade, grilled cheese sandwiches, fries, and even buttermilk biscuits. Yesterday…

    Past Life, past dead

    I’m not one for catching many shows on tv now that my DVR is filled up with The Office and Futurama, but tonight the tv just so happened to be on American Idol that lead into Fox’s new mystery show Past Life. I’m not one really to get into dramas, but if i happen to watch one from the beginning i’ll stick it out to the end to see where they go with it. So i gave Past Life a chance with its déjà vú/reincarnation plot line, but in the end it really did just feel like déjà vú. The characters seemed so cliché and the plot in the end…

    Super Bowl of chicken curry and rice

    Sunday morning we met up with the Wang’s for dim sum at Sea Empress in Gardena. This used to be an old lunch spot for me at IR and Joy had her doubts of dim sum so southwest of the San Gabriel area, but she was surprised how good it actually was. We didn’t really have any super bowl plans that we just spent the rest of the day roaming around the Century City mall, and grabbing a cream puff at Beard Papa’s on Sawtelle. We came back down to Gardena to hit some golf balls with Ben. Eventually we made it back home and cooked up some chicken curry…

    All out Saturday

    Robin’s daughter Katelyn celebrated her first year on earth on Saturday. There were plenty of kids roaming around and even more costco food on the table to eat. Katelyn got her first taste of sugar/frosting/cupcake and she loved it so much to wiped it all over her face. Joy and I got plenty of sweets and dino-buddies in our stomach then headed out to Disneyland. I was hoping that it would be raining, but it happened to be a completely clear night out. They did announce that due to the “bad weather” the park was going to close early. It didn’t really matter because the park was so empty we…
