Q & A

I was tagged by t for this meme. If you see this, you're it. Okay you don't have to play and start acting all grown up and stuff.

What were you doing 10 years ago?

10 years ago, according to my calculations that would be 1998. Ninety-ninety-eight, what did I do. That was the year I graduated from high school. During the year I went on a Grad ski trip, boat cruise, went to dry Grad, rented a limo with the gang, and signed yearbooks late into the night at my friend, Meghan's house. I didn't get accepted into UBC's Engineering program because I was too dumb in Physics. I did get into UVic's Engineering program because my dumbness level just made it in Physics, but I couldn't afford moving there. So I was left with the only university that accepted me into their Science program (which I ended up not doing right off the bat) at SFU. It was at SFU that I almost ended up in a cult. I was walking downtown one day and this guy comes up to me to ask if I go to church and I said yes I do. He then told me about his church and how it was way better than any other church out there. Little did I know that I ended up going to a service at the Church of Christ. I was a bit naïve. I was literally scared so it was short lived after the guy kept calling me to join his Bible study and I said stop calling me you freak. No I didn’t say that. After that, I ran into another cult and ended up serving with them for 5 years and even became Student President for a couple of years. I’m kidding about the cult part, the organization was Campus Crusade for Christ and they are good folks. I’ve made a number of close friends whom I still keep in touch with.

What were you doing one year ago?

I got up, did my business in the toilet, ate breakfast, put on clothes, went to work, ate lunch with co-workers, worked again, went home, took a shower, got into my sweats, sat on the couch, watched TV, ate dinner, watched some more TV, played Playstation, surfed the Internet, and then went to bed.

Five snacks you enjoy?

1. Kimchi Bowl. It’s the only kimchi I will eat in soup form. I enjoy this noodle snack late at night. For some reason, every time I eat a bowl, I feel I have shortened my lifespan by a little bit.
2. Microwaveable Popcorn. I enjoy this snack late at night too. I used to get the heavy butter, but now I usually get light and throw in some powdered white cheese. I like real popcorn from a machine, but I’m too lazy to set it up plus I don’t have a popcorn machine.
3. Potato Chips. I’m addicted to these things. I keep eating them until I get sick of them. It has definitely contributed to my belly expanding more than it should.
4. Cereal. I usually have a bowl at night. Biggest mistake ever is to buy no name brand cereal. Okay cereal is cheap in the first place, but to buy something even cheaper, you get what you pay for. There is a box of Western Family Frosted Flakes that my mom bought 2 years ago still in the house. No one has bothered to throw it out because it’s still full. It is the worse cereal I have ever eaten.
5. Ice Cream. I love this frozen delight especially going to that ice cream place on Venables in the industrial park near downtown that has like over 200 flavours. I don’t know why it’s in the middle of nowhere.

Five things you would do if you were a millionaire?

1. Buy a Ferrari
2. Buy a penthouse condo suite in downtown
3. Buy a yacht
4. Buy expensive champagne to celebrate how rich I am
5. End up bankrupt

Five bad habits?

1. My mom gets annoyed when I shake my leg a lot. I don’t know if I’m anxious or bored or if it’s a condition. Generally it’s spontaneous. I can only stop it by concentrating on it or sitting with my legs crossed. But then I start bouncing up and down.
2. My bro gets annoyed when after washing my hands, I never give them a shake into the sink to pre-dry them off before grabbing a towel. I tend to let it drip all over the place before reaching for a towel.
3. My dad gets annoyed with my printing skills. He says it’s the worst printing he has ever seen and that nobody can read it. I’m pretty sure someone can read it or else I really did buy my bachelor’s degree online and never told my dad.
4. I don’t do enough ab crunches. My dad sees my belly getting larger and tells me I’m fat.
5. I procrastinate quite a bit on my school work which is why I am doing this meme right now.

Five things you like doing?

1. Snowboarding. Whenever it’s sunny or a clear night, I head up to Grouse and use my Y2Play pass. I swear the mountain is owned and run by Aussies.
2. Playing Call of Duty 4 on the Playstation 3. I will play this game for hours on end and not get bored. Well I do after the 3rd hour. My dad thinks I’m going to join the army and that this is my training.
3. Watching Canucks games. I love watching them play and I will even go so far as to watch the pay-per-view games on the Internet. Go Canucks Go!
4. Golfing. I enjoy this “sport” lugging a heavy bag of metal sticks all day with my foursome. I lose about 15 or more balls a game.
5. Blogging. Need I say more.

Five favourite toys?

1. Laptop. If I was stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one thing, it would be a laptop provided it has unlimited battery power and Internet connection. Forget about a mirror or a flare gun. I have e-mail.
2. Terminator action figure. It doesn’t do anything. It just looks cool.
3. Sony PS3. I love this thing, it plays Blu-ray movies, video games, you can surf the net and add your photo collection. When I’m away on vacation, I think about this machine from time to time, missing it.
4. Digital camera. I enjoy taking pictures with my regular 7.1 Megapixel Canon. None of this DSLR shenanigan. Oh wait, I do want one, but I don’t have a G lying around.
5. Cell phone. It really does beat searching for a pay phone in heavy rain and does wonders for keeping a contact list in one place rather than on a long strip of paper.

Five things you would never wear again?

1. Speedos. I don’t want to embarrass the other guys with how manly I look in them.
2. Hypercolor t-shirt. I felt cheated after washing and drying them once only to end up with permanent pink rather than the original purple. I didn't know if you put it in a dryer, it screws up the chemical balances of the shirt.
3. A cheap suit. I will wear my cheap suit from Moores but I will never buy another one again. My next suit will cost a G and it will be from Harry Rosen. Then, I will feel like a millionaire.
4. Wifebeater (aka sleeveless shirt). It just doesn’t look right on me plus I’m pale.
5. Shorts from China. I didn’t even have the chance to wear the pair I bought from China. No one told me that what I know as a large is extra extra extra small in China.

Wow! That's all I can say about this clip. It happened in yesterday's game between the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders. Maple Lefas won 3-1 by the way.

It's raining right now. I've been trying to start the next Accounting case where I'm supposed to share my answers in tomorrow morning's meeting, but I continue to procrastinate. I was checking out YouTube to watch and listen to some of my favourite underground hip hop artists when I stumbled upon Amplive's Rainydayz Remixes. Amplive is one of my favourite DJs and is part of the Zion I crew. In this project, he remixed some songs from Radiohead without their approval, and apparently they came to an agreement where he could release the album to the general public for free. I've been trying to download it from the main website, but not having much success. I will continue to look for it in this vast cyberspace because the remixed songs are sick. *UPDATED* I finally downloaded the album from the main website, the server must have been down earlier this evening. Get your free copy here.

Check out this track called "Video Tapez." It features one of my favourite MCs, Del The Funkee Homosapien, along with Thom Yorke from Radiohead. I have actually seen both these artists live in their respective shows and they were fantastic.

I've decided that after my Accounting final in April, I'm going to Disneyland. Well actually, I'm planning to go to LA. It's not too expensive and I have a place to stay. I'll be seeing some aunts and cousins for the first time in 20 odd years.

According to a US census, there are about 1.4 million Koreans and Korean Americans living in the United States. About 350,000 live in Los Angeles County, mostly in Mid-City's Koreatown. They represent the largest community of Koreans outside Korea. I heard it's just like being in Korea and I will find out soon since I had gone to the country last October.

I'm looking forward to meeting Mickey Mouse too.
