Finally, an entertaining chain Facebook status movement has managed to grab my attention. Instead of the usual “support-this-cause-that-only-assholes-would-be-against” and the random spam (thanks a lot Mob Wars) I usually find on my friend feed, this week is:
Doppelgänger week on Facebook; change your profile picture to some one famous (actor, musician, athlete, etc.) you have been told you look like. After you update your profile with your twin or switched at birth photo then cut/paste this to your status.
To see who my friends think they look like has been a real delight. Of course the self-annointed resemblances ranges from the eerily similar to totally self-flattering variety, I noticed that very few of my Asian friends are partaking in the fun.
Once again, I had another personal ailment cured by some crazy Chinese remedy.
Every year, I develop a nasty cough in the Winter months. Last year, my cough was so bad that I couldn’t even sleep without coughing my lungs out and waking up throughout the night. While hesitant to run home and tell mommy where it hurts, like most inquisitive mothers, my mom found out about my chronic cough soon enough.
Naturally, my mom gave me the most ridiculous cough syrup for me to try.
Wow, so it’s been a very very long while. Lot’s of bloggers go through it. As a matter of fact, the hardest part of blogging is probably to consistently blog. But the creative spirit and urge to write is back in me and I feel the holy blogger spirit flowing through my fingers.
I’ve been extremely busy these days with my professional life. But to show you all that I’m back and that I mean it, I’ve grabbed this spiffy new design over from Wordpress.
So be ready for frequent unadulterated banter from your favorite Asian blogger.
If I were to walk up and ask random people on the street to name an Asian football player? How many would be able to come up with even one? Would they believe me if I told them there have been a few Asian football players in the NFL? Would I have better luck asking the same question in Chinatown? Probably not. Simply because there has only been a hand full of Asians that has made it as far as the NFL anyway. Whoever created this world probably didn’t design the our Asian bodies for football and if I were to question why there aren’t many Asians in the NFL, I’d get such a response. But I personally don’t believe any of that mess. The NFL, unlike the NBA, doesn’t favor 7 feet tall athletes in such a way that the NBA does. In fact, most corner backs and running backs are between 5’11” and 6’3″ and race or ethnicity has nothing to do with why Asians are physically limited in getting into football.
Well first things first, apologies for the lack of updates. But let us get things brewing again with some viral video and what many have claimed to be racial tension on the much beloved San Francisco MUNI. The following video literally just hit YouTube, and from it, you get a front row shot to some […]
Six-time title-holder Takeru Kobayashi fell short of his seventh title after guzzling down 64 soaked hot dogs this Saturday. Since first ousting Kobayashi from the hot dog throne in 2007, Joey Chestnut of San Jose, CA set a world record for 68 hot dogs this July 4th at Nathan’s world famous hot dog eating contest. […]
