Atlanta: No Hurling!

13 01 2011

I pulled an all nighter last night in order to make sure I made my cab and flight in time.  I was a little delirious, but I thought this sign in the back of the cab was funny at the moment.

The Road: Atlanta

12 01 2011

The new year is upon us, and I’ve already hit the road traveling for work.  I’ve been in Atlanta this past week, and if you haven’t seen the news, then you might be surprised to hear the city has been buried in a blizzard!

Early Sunday evening, I pulled up into my hotel in Midtown Atlanta and snapped this picture of downtown “Hotlanta”.  The news had forecasted heavy snow, but not a flake was in sight.

A few hours later, I opened the curtains from my room, and sure enough…”Hotlanta” was no more.  For the past 3 days, highs have been in the low 30’s during the day, and deep into the teens at night.

Below is my ride for the week, an AWD Honda Element.  Although it may not seem capable, this little box seriously got me all over the city passing stuck and sliding cars left and right.  I have an all new respect for Elements after driving one for a week!  Growing up in LA, the snow was fun for a few days…but I’m definitely getting a bit of cabin fever…I can’t wait to catch my 6:50AM flight back to LA!

AsianGiant: UNPLUGGED

3 09 2010

It’s that time again folks, I’ll be unplugged from civilization for about the next 10 days.  I’m going to an undisclosed location for a business trip/off roading.  The location is actually going to be a surprise for about 50 clients that will be joining us out there.  But I’ll leave this picture as a clue to where we are going.

Hang Loose!

25 08 2010

By the time you read this, I’ll probably be one of those specs on the beach.  That’s right folks, I’ll be in Hawaii for work/vacay for about the next week!  It’ll be nice to get away and recharge my batteries.

Sleepless In Seattle

20 08 2010

Another awesome digital masterpiece from Falken Tire’s Creative staff.  Check out the video below for event recap of Formula D Seattle.  *note* for those that know me, yes…that’s me laughing in the interview at the beginning of the vid. Good times.

Wave House

10 08 2010

This past weekend, the girlfriend and I went down to Wave House in San Diego for Kevie Kev’s bday…if you haven’t been you should MUST!  Wave House not only has two simulated wave machines for surfing, but they also have $4 margaritas!

The bday boy himself and I.  You can tell this picture is early in the day because Kevin is still smiling…and still standing. haha

If you haven’t been able to tell from the sequence of these photos, I’m pretty much a natural to surfing on wave machines.  Someone in the crowd said I looked like an Asian Kelly Slater out on the waves.

A few adult beverages later, Kevie Kev wasn’t feeling too hot.  His demon tattoo looked thirsty, but he was out for the count.  Happy Birthday Kev!  Another well spent weekend gone, and another AF Fam adventure for the books.
