    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.

        @Daniel Azuma: make sure you don’t have chopsticks at your wedding!

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

    happy 1st anniversary, viv!!! 

    we did it!
    they say that the first year of marriage is supposed to be the toughest… and though there were definitely tough times it’s also been the best year because now my life is no longer just mine but yours as well, and i would have it no other way!
    you continue to amaze and teach me what 1 cor. 13 personified is. you aspire me to be a better husband, friend and advocate.
    i am truly the most blessed guy b/c i get to journey this life (and the world) together with you!

    i love you and am looking to celebrating as many more anniversaries as the Lord allows (and not making you upset!).

    (to those who’ve been married for > a year, you’re our heroes! please feel free to pass along any marital wisdom, tips and advice. 🙂)

        @lil: what do you mean “hope (you) can make it”?!?! of course you will! 😉 your marriage is like a box of top pot doughnuts… each doughnut (like a year) gets better with the next! 😀

    proposals. some right, others terribly wrong… 

    big congrats to tim‘s proposal to tiffany (TNT)!
    gotta hand it to him, he truly is the man.  if you look at the picture/how it all went down… you’ll see it’s quite the engagement proposal!
    (and kudos to ghkim for shooting/capturing the moment! imagine, being in the presence of 4 photographers!!!)

    but then to balance things out, you have this guy. when i read the story, i knew where it was heading. at first, i was laughing, then i felt bad when i saw the response of his ummm… non-understanding ‘potential’ fiancee?
    ….Hajji, of Hackney, east London, had concealed a $12,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon. The idea was that she would pop the balloon as he popped the question.

    But as he left the shop, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hand and he watched the ring — and quite possibly the affections of his girlfriend — sailing away over the rooftops…
