    I’m an Uncle

    For the past week my mom has been in San Francisco waiting for my sister to pop. Days went by, and the only updates that i got were of them going out to eat, walking the dog, and napping. The arrival day passed and it seemed like Kumquat (Kaylee Jane) was never going to come. It all changed when i got a text from my mom at 4:30am on Friday saying that she was coming and they were going to the hospital. Eventually i woke up and headed to work with updates like: 6:34am Nina: Dude, this suuuuuuuuuucks. 8:54 Mom: She ok, in pain every 2 min 10:26 Mom: Almost…

    Flying High Birthday

    Ben messaged me a few weeks ago about a new Trampoline Gym that opened up in Gardena, and so he decided to have his birthday party there on Saturday. Sky Zone is a warehouse full of trampolines broken off into a general bounce area, a couple basketball rims, a few dodgeball courts, and a foam pit. Just bouncing can really tire you out, and the height that you can get can get a little harrowing.  The fun part was going to the foam pit where we got to actually try out some stunts like front flips and back flips. The Front flip was the easiest of the two and i still don’t think i…

    Easter Premium

    Easter always seems to sneak up on me and ruins any plans i have for the day because it has to be the weirdest day that everything is closed. I guess i would really have to be Christian to understand what the big deal is about Easter, considering the only thing i know about it is that people go to church, paint and hide eggs, and eat. Any plans for going to Home Depot or to the mall to buy some shoes were tossed out the window so of course there was only one thing to do. At least we got to take the real advantage of the Disneyland Premium Pass by…

    Hollywood 5K

    The past week Joy and I have been fighting off a cold and the Hollywood 5K loomed over us with the weekend fast approaching. Everyday was different from just skipping to walking it, but we eventually just decided to go and see what we could do. In hindsight maybe we should’ve skipped it, but not because of our physical condition. The race packet pickup happened to be on Friday and so the first test was seeing if we could make it all the way out to the Universal Hilton before 7pm. The freeway was kind to us and we made it to Hollywood at about 6:30, but from there it…

    Songkran Beer Tower

    To be honest, i had no idea that it was Thai New Years until Roland texted me the day before asking me if i was going to Hollywood to celebrate. Thankfully i didn’t have any plans for what i like to call Meats on a stick day. To get the party started Saturday night Joy and I went to Scoops Westside for some ice cream and we actually got the Durian Yuzu ice cream, along with a scoop of Cinnamon Mocha. I probably should like durian as i remember eating this gummy paste durian all the time and its really not that bad once you get used to the smell.…

    Golfing down the river again

    The one thing i like about foursquare that it’ll notify you when you haven’t been to a certain place for a long period of time so it was interesting to see that its been a year since the last time i played at Riverview in Santa Ana. CJ my basketball teammate is an avid golfer and we’ve been trying for a few weekends now to meet up for a round and finally got together this weekend. Along with our other teammate Steve we went out on course for a 9:15 tee time with gray skies, but thankfully not much wind. I started off the day well with a couple bogeys…

    ElecTRONica with Friends

    ElecTRONica is ending on April 15 to make room for the Mad Tea Party so it was imperative that we had to go this past Friday to make sure that we didn’t miss it. We got Andy, Jen, Shane and Joann to come along since they all have passes too and it was fun going with people who knew the park just as well as we do, since Andy used to work there as well. ElecTRONica is pretty interested as its basically suppose to mimic the club scene from TRON Legacy with lots of music, dancers and even glowing alcoholic drinks. It really made me want to go clubbing again. There’s also a Flynn…
