    well, it finally happened… 

    we bought the test and the results weren’t exactly telling (seemed like we were  preggers but… maybe we weren’t):

    a pregnancy test we got in hong kong... kinda inconclusive, no?

    so we decided to go to see the doctor when we returned back to the states and when (More …)

    what an amazing experience to have a christmas day breakfast in auckland, new zealand and then fly over and have a christmas dinner (at din fai tung) in sydney, australia! though flying on the 25th  felt like we only had half a christmas this year.
    and our plan to catch a christmas service at hillsongs unfortunately didn’t work out, since by the time we touch downed it was already early evening.

    30ft down under in the "land down under" - the great barrier reef...

    anyway, we had a great hotel right in downtown and were able to enjoy all of the incredible sights + sounds of this great city! so bizarre to be halfway around the world spending christmas… and yet such a blessing to have this opportunity! and walking a few blocks, we were smack dab in the heart of chinatown. and seriously… there were SOOOO many asians that several times, (More …)

    help LiNK win $250k for their “liberty house”… 

    vote to help LiNK win $250k!!!

    from LiNK:
    VOTE ONCE A DAY. EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Until February 28th.

    Over the holidays, we asked you to give to TheHundred so that we can begin rescuing refugees from the underground. But once they’re out, they’ll need a place to go. “Liberty House” will be just that  a transitional living facility for newly resettled refugees in the US.

    This time around, WERE NOT ASKING YOU TO GIVE. Instead vote for “Liberty House” at Pepsi’s Refresh Project. The top two organizations will win $250,000.

    when i grow up… 

    i hope to be as good a guitar player as this 12-year old (either that or i’m going to throw my taylor away and give up :()!
    as a 9 year-old, sungha jung learned to play guitar while watching trace bundy (i have never seen anyone use more capos than this guy!) on youtube and the rest, as they say, is history…
    now he’s here in the u.s. on tour playing together with trace. how cool is that?
    anyway, joseph + i had the pleasure of being @ the triple door (an uber-cool venue, btw!) to record this magical night of music!
    here’s a clip of them deciding to do an impromptu rendition of u2’s “with or without you“…

        @mindy: i’m 6’4″ on good days (5’5″ on other ;))… i would say sungha’s 5’3″? but then again, he’s only 12 and probably has more growing to do.

    chopsticks can be lethal… 

    little ji lingchao fighting for his life...

    was planning to comment on this story when i first saw it but got sidetracked…
    found myself rather drawn to this story for a few reasons:

    • while running around carrying a dessert fork w/ an apple, i slipped and stabbed myself right through my cheek (not that cheek!)  😐
    • my good friend, hun also had a crazy serious accident with a chopstick being lodged into the roof of his mouth.
    • but mostly, seeing little ji lingchao on the bed and knowing the pain this 14-month old (and his poor parents!) had to endure. according to the cnn report:

    She (mother) went to a local clinic, but doctors there warned her it was too dangerous to try to remove the chopstick because it may cause massive bleeding. A relative offered to drive them from their small village, hundreds of miles to a hospital in Beijing.
    I thought at that time, it is all over, my boy will die,” said his father Li Guanglai. “During the 10 hours of driving I felt depressed. I could barely breathe. I looked at my boy and his right side was numb. He was paralyzed.

    10 HOURS?!?!? (More …)

      Ugh geesh… There was an episode of BSG (early season 3 I think) where Starbuck kills a Number 2 by stabbing it in the neck with a chopstick. Definitely gotta be careful with those.

      Good job dude. Now every asian parent will be freaking out when their child even touches a pair of chopsticks…..

    congrats: jinny + daniel… 

    had a killer opportunity to shoot a wedding video w/ the creative genius, joseph jang in honolulu, hawaii. we were able to share a beautiful day with jinny + daniel as they tied the knot before their family, friend and God:  january 19, 2010. not a bad time of the year to be in hawaii (considering the uber-warm weather in seattle ;))!
    i first met the groom, daniel over 10+ years ago during a praise event in bellevue! crazy to see him all grown up and getting married… i couldn’t be happier for him. he’s truly one of the nicest guys i have EVER met in my life (i think it shows up in the video when you look at his smile).  🙂
    i’m amazed at joseph and his mad skillz! he truly has an incredible eye + did a great job of weaving together the story of that magical day. i know that they will look at this video for years to come and be transported back to their special day!
    if you need any video-related need, let him know! i promise you WON’T be disappointed.
    congrats again to jinny + daniel… may the Lord bless, keep + shine His face upon you two in your marriage journey!
