New Years and Dim Sum (missing photo)

Went to Dim Sum with family on Sunday (Chinese New Year) morning. They were very festive! Just look at this guy in a costume:

He was giving away red pockets with coupons. So nice!

A Whole Roasted Hog

Have you ever been so hungry that you could eat a cow? How about a whole pig?

Now is your opportunity!

This is at the City Barbeque. It's like from those old medieval movies where you eat a whole pig with an apple in its mouth. To me, it looks like those crispy skin pigs they have at Chinese BBQ places.

Chapters late at night

With an hour to waste before a movie, we ventured over to Chapters to pass the time.

With so many books, a starbucks, and plenty of chairs, I can't see how they can convince people to buy the books and actually make enough to pay for the rent and operating expenses of this entire store.

City Barbeque

After a long night of work, all you want to do is sit back, open a beer, and munch on some meat. This when you go to:

A place where meat is #1. We walked out with bags of meat and a crate of pop in ice. This image says it all:

Airport Check-in

Gone are the days of speaking with a real person to check in.

But not gone is the line ups to get to one of these check-in machines. Not to mention the long lines through customs and security! It's Monday and I'm going to be travelling again. It's tiring but rewarding. Why must everything come with some negative?

More Memory

As phones become more like computers, they need more and more memory to store programs, documents, music, and other files.

So I got something good for myself:

It's a ATP 512MB MMCMobile for my Nokia 6682. There's 1GB MMCMobile cards available but not from ATP yet. Now I can stuff my phone full of Family Guy episodes!

Do you have a membership to Costco? If not, then do you have one for Sam's Club?

I don't like paying just to shop somewhere but our family has a membership to Costco. But why? WHy to shop in a place that resembles a warehouse? Cost. Costco makes a guaranteed amount per year through membership so it can sell its products at near cost to people like my family. I guess it's the same way some credit cards chrage annual fee and offer lots of extras over free cards.

But I'm sort of wary of our family saving money there. I mainly buy their bottled water and smoked turkey drumsticks. YUM! Their electronic section is pretty sparse and I'm not too into eating lots of one thing.

Many of you may know I love hamburgers and one of my favorite franchises in Canada is Harvey's

This is not a place that will serve salad just because it's the latest fad. With a slogan, "Long live the grill", this restaurant is all about serving juicy grilled meat. If you're up from the States, make Harvey's part of your visit.

LEGO Anime?

I see so many canisters of LEGO "The Bionicle" at any toy store and wonder if any of them ever gets sold. After a really bad financial year for Lego, they're changing things by introducing even more crappy product lines.

Here's the latest one:

It's LEGO Exo-Force and it's like anime mixed in with LEGO. Very few blocks in included with each package and it resembles more like the junk Transformers LEGO sets. But of course, if you're interested you can read more about it in the Millionaire Playboy site.

Something more cool is the 8-Ft One-of-a-Kind LEGO STAR WARS REBEL ATTACK CRUISER that's going for 31K USD at the moment on eBay.

Eating more Healthy?

As you've read my McDonald's blog entry, I like hamburgers and fries. But today I ate healthy. I had their Asian Chicken Salad.

Don't worry... I had boneless chicken wings on the side to balance out the salad.

Happy New Year!

I want to wish everyone a happy new year! May all your wishes come true this year and you better stick to those new years resolutions this year around.

Well the only shopping mall open today were Chinese malls like Pacific Mall

So I went there and got myself a screen protector for my V3.
