Fartigated

Well, after lion dancing for 5 freakin hours in Chinatown and then going to do 2 more 20 minute shows at Casino for Chinese New Year on Sunday I now feel like I have a headache in my entire body. Honestly, typing this blog is exhausting...I mean not only are my arms and legs tired but I can feel it in my tiny eye muscles too. I feel like I've been run over by bulls and forced to watch 48 hrs of the incredible bearded woman banging Paris Hilton with my eye lids held open. Anyhoo, the positives was that I ate tons of food over the weekend, enough to feed an entire island occupied by savage monkies and I got to be on CTV (CFCF) news for those who didn't see it hehe...Thats it for now, time to go dunk my face in ice...

Year of the dog

So as most of us know Chinese New Year is offically a week away (Jan. 29th), and for most of you non yellow folks who are wondering whats the big deal? Well if you're Chinese that means food, food and more food and getting lots of money from relatives (YEESS!!). Anyways, while I was cleaning up my desk I came across this placemat I got from a chinese restaurant from Toronto a few years back that talks about the chinese zodiac. And since its the year of the dog I thought all you dog people would like to know a little about yourself, according to this piece of paper hehe...

"Dog: Loyal and honest, you are generous and work well with others though are sometimes critical. You are well-suited to the horse, the tiger and the hare, and ill-suited to dragon and ram."

Oh and I gotta add this little bit about the Monkey since I'm born in the year of the monkey, hehe I love this line, "Monkey: Clever and skillful to the point of genius, practical and given to detail..."

Well thats pretty much it for now, for those who are interested, our next lion dance shows (Casino - Dragon only) will be:
Jan. 26th at Jet Club (1am so its technically Jan.27th but whatever)
Jan. 28th at Casino (6pm, 8pm, 10pm)
Jan. 29th Chinatown street show/parade (12pm - 4pmish) & Casino (6pm, 8pm, 10pm)

Hopefully I'll see some of you at the Chinatown show/parade or maybe Casino gambling your lifesavings away haha...oh and more news about KINFIT to come in the near future. Later!

Kinfit video podcast

So after watching all these video podcasts people have been doing about tech stuff I thought it would be cool to start one of my own but on health, nutrition and fitness trends. Basically its gonna be me and a friend talking about whats new, giving tips and stuff weekly...oh and the occaisional interview. But everything so far is just on paper...Gotta get a camcorder first but its so freakin expensive. Probably going to buy a domain name soon, I just discovered someone already owns KINFIT.com, DAMMIT!! whats worse is that they don't even use it..so now I have to go with something like KINFITONLINE.com...ah well, better than nothing. Building a website from scratch takes time so I'm probably going to use a blog site, like Blogger or Typepad since it'll be easy to set up and stuff...I'm leaning towardsTypepad, since I know it offers a decent amount of space and more bandwith than Blogger. As for the video's I'll probably have a streaming version provided by Audioblog or VideoAddon and downloadable formats (mpeg4, H264, etc.). Also gotta figure out RSS feeds, but all in all I've pretty much figured out most of the technical aspects required, just some little things left to go over but now we can more or less focus on the content and structure of each episode now. Hopefully by early or late sping we'll have our first episode up and running and later find some sponsors. In the mean time if anyone has anything to suggest we would love to hear it, we could use all the help we can get. We also need someone to help redesign our logo and someone to design an opening graphics intro and segment graphics so if you or someone else you know can help us we'd love to hear from you. That's it for now, hope everyone has a great week!

Highlights of the night

So here are some of the "interesting" and not so interesting things that took place the night of Dec.31-Jan.1..

  • Going to Andrew's house party, ditching it after only 60 mins to go to another house party at a loft on St.Laurent in Montreal (Sorry Andrew...peer pressure hehe..it was Steve and Glen's idea hehe)
  • Reunited with a couple of old friends from highschool (Steve, Glen & James) for the night
  • James splashing his drink all over his face and "cashmere" sweater when a air hockey disc flew at his face, hahaha
  • James who kept freakin saying "French Toast" the whole freakin night....
  • Being the last customers of the year at the Dep on the corner of Milton and Durocher to buy some last minute beer cause James left the liquor at Andrew's...idiot...
  • Steve & Glen writing their names in the snow in some alley on our way to the loft....(if you don't get it, think real hard and you will...hehehe)
  • Being the token asian guy of the group....
  • 3492 Saint-Famille Street...hehe
  • Almost got ran over by a police car crossing the street...yeesh...
  • The loft on St.Laurent was on the top floor and was really really nice and big...
  • Steve wussing out 3 times with the same hot chick that was all over him at the loft...
  • After wussing out the 3rd time, Steve just gave a high 5 to the hot chick...wtf?!?!
  • Me slapping Steve behind the head for wussing out 3 times with the same hot chick...
  • Steve threatening to kill me if I didn't stop slapping him in the back of the head...hehe
  • Drinking lots & lots of beer and eating lots & lots of cookies and seeing lots & lots of "nice" girls...hehe
  • Guys who decided to go pee on the rooftop cause the lineup for the washroom was too long to wait...
  • Seeing a urinal and a toliette in the same washroom at the loft....who else can say they have a urinal at home??...
  • The countdown and then more alcohol...haha
  • Big freakin dog drooling and slobbering all over my jeans cause it wanted the bowl of popcorn I was eating....
  • Why do fobby or nerdy asian guys automatically feel the need to go talk with another asian guy at parties?? I mean seriously, it's like once they spot you its over, you know they're coming, no point in hiding cause they'll find you eventually...it's like walking down the street or on a bus and 99% of the time if you pass an asian guy they will glimpse at you with the corner of their eyes...wtf?!?...sorry buddy I'm not your friend John Wong from Chem 101 or your cousin Peter Chang...sheesh...why does this only happen with guys and not girls? DAMMIT!!!...
  • James and I ditching the loft for a bit to go to "3492", only to discover the occupants were gone so we went back to the loft to rejoin Steve and Glen...
  • On our way to the loft we came across 4 really drunk white girls from Toronto in front of Belle Province who were looking for a strip club and wouldn't shut the hell up...
  • An intoxicated Glen dancing with a really hot girl in a sexy red dress who wasn't wearing any panties...thats right folks, she went commando...we all got the visual confirmation...
  • Finding out from one of Glen's friends that the hot girl in the sexy red dress has a boyfriend who was the big tall bald guy at the party that could bench press me....
  • James standing in the same spot, with the same drink, talking to the same girl, for almost 2 hours thinking he was gonna score but he wasn't...haha
  • Steve and I cracking remarks and making bets that James wasn't going to get anywhere with this girl...
  • Analyzing if the email the hot chick gave Steve was real..."april.rose@mail.mcgill.ca"... hmmm sounds fake to me....
  • Steve having regrets and second thoughts about wussing out with the hot chick with Glen and I confirming to him what an idiot he was, near the end of the night...
  • Intoxicated Glen can still walk in a straight line and appear somewhat sober...hehe
  • The 4 of us walking back to my car parked on Prince Arthur at 5am...
