Thanks for joining me. The trip did have a lot of "little" moments. I wish we could have filmed them.

Oh man, when I think about them . . . I cannot help but laugh.

"For death and glory?" . . . . Yes . . . . YES!


"Man snack"

Playing "Confidential Mission" all the way to the end, only to lose on that last mission. Beating Time Crisis 2 . . . again. Beating Mars Mission. Last stage on Raiden Fighters.

More madness to come.

Back from the quest.

We didn't really do a whole lot, but the trip was filled with "little" moments.
Some highlights:

"Lugged. So lugged."
"Lugged Riner."
"Ugged Riner."
"You are one ugged mother."

"Is this it? Is this all you can conjure up Solomon?"

"What is this?"

"Korea snack."

"You guys go and follow him."
"Come on. There's gonna be pretty girls there."
"I have a girlfriend!"
"Not for you. For him."
"No! Don do dat!"
"It's a trap Boy."
"It's an ambush."

"He looks like you."
"Him. A little."
"Hahaha. No way."
"Yeah you do! A little."
"Okay okay he's my dad too."

"Hey your stepmom thinks I look like your dad."




Minhee: Thanks! Hope you have a great retreat.

Boy: The quest for Vegas has ended. The quest for Diego has just begun.


Tomorrow we'll be heading down to San Diego for the Christmas Conference.
We'll be back next Thursday, I think.

Feel free to post some stuff while I'm gone and make my neglected blog happy.


Last week of December, last week of 2002.
That means... yeah.

who are you?
when will you be through?
yeah it's just a phase
it will be over soon
yeah it's just a phase
yeah it's just a ...phase
(and I'm waiting for it to be over too)

Merry christmas Daniel~! hope your journey on the road with Adrian will be a blast! I will be praying for you guys~!
Merry Christmas Boy. The wild ride begins today. I will see you everyday for the next two weeks. Time for some crazies.

Happy birthday Jesus.

It just feels weird staying at someone's home while they're doing the whole "Christmas morning with family" thing.


My posts have been very sparse as of late, and I'm afraid it's not going to get better anytime soon.
I'm off on a trip quest with Adrian to conquer the world.
It'll take three days.


MxPx - Christmas Day

she waits and prays
because it's almost Christmas day
a little faith
could always go such a long way

there's something about the way you spend your Christmas
there's something about the way you care
there's something about the way you care

a little goes a long way
a little goes a long way
a little goes a long way
a little goes along on your Christmas day

there's Christmas cheer
enough to last you three whole years
there's a mistletoe
if you were me then you would know

the snow outside covers the ground
and as I watch it falling down I think of her so far away
and how much I'd like to be with her on Christmas day
on Christmas day
on Christmas day
on Christmas day

Fortune Cookie: Wise man say: Successful person, one who recognized chance, and took it.


Playstation 5.


Eric: Kill Bill is a new action movie written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It's gonna be bloody. It's gonna be awesome. And it's gonna be better than the Matrix sequels. And that "yellow and black strip suit" is an homage to Bruce Lee. He wore it in Game of Death, his last movie.

is the yellow and black stip stuit suppose to be sexy??
I got a long way to run
yeah, I run...

Wednesday, December 18, 2002

This Friday

Gangs of New York is opening.
Normally I wouldn't be excited one bit for a movie starring Leonardo Dicrapio, but this will be an exception.
Four words: Kill Bill teaser trailer.

I guess the fact that it's directed by Martin Scorcese won't hurt either.
And Daniel Day-Lewis supposedly kicks ass in the movie.

So who wants to watch it?
We can just leave after the Kill Bill preview.
wut? u watched it AGAIN???

The Two Towers, Again

It was even better the second time.
The end, when they're coming down the mountain, and the music... oh my goodness it gives me the willies.

The Two FREAKIN' Towers

Kick ass action, check.
Beautiful music, check.
Bad ass moves from Legolas, check.
Gimli doing/saying funny stuff, check.
Homoerotic tone between Frodo and Sam, check.
Lots and lots of CGI, check.
3 hours long, check.
To be continued next November December, check.

ballroom dancing is sooo cool. there's this movie i saw, strictly ballroom dancing, and it's sooo cool!

One two cha-cha-cha.

I had to "help out" at my uncle's studio for his annual Christmas party showcase tonight.
What kind of a studio?
A dance studio.
A ballroom dance studio.

The following is a transcription of my thoughts throughout the night.

6:07pm: What the hell am I doing here?

6:16pm: This is gonna be the gayest night, evar.

6:33pm: So many geezers.

7:02pm: At least I'm getting fed.

7:03pm: This tastes horrible. I'm gonna have to get something on the way home.

7:19pm: Man, you haven't lived 'till you've seen people slowdance to "Silent Night." Now I can die in peace.

7:25pm: I can't believe Adrian was going to walk home today. What's up with that Boy?

7:37pm: I wonder what she's doing. I wonder if she's sitting home wondering about me. God I'm so pathetic.

Yadda yadda yadda.

My uncle is an awesome dancer. I had seen him teach lessons and stuff, but today was the first time I actually saw him perform in front of people. He's crazy good. Not bad for a guy in his 40's. How did he get so good? It can't be in the genes, no one else in our family can dance worth a crap. He must have been adopted. He's gotta have some black genes in there somewhere, only black people can move like that.

All I know is that if I ever lose my sanity and decide to learn ballroom dancing, I can learn from the best.
For free.

Jason lives.

I dropped and broke a plate (for the first time) at work today.
And today is Friday the 13th.
Coincidence? Pfft.


There's a new Jim Carrey movie coming out, called Bruce Almighty.
What's it about?

"God (Morgan Freeman) grows weary of people who blame him for everything wrong in their lives, so he picks the worst offender, Bruce (Jim Carrey) and grants him all the powers of God (good only within one square block of Bruce’s house) and bets him that he can’t successfully answer a prayer in a week."

I know it's blasphemy, but it sure looks funny.
It also clears up the age-old debate: God is black.

Check out the trailer.
i kno joyce... and she is mah FRAN!!!

Thursday, December 12, 2002

what the heck did i start? ahhh .... who are you talking to?
look wat you started!!!! dang it!!!
to everyone who posts on daniel's blog: lets be nice to eric please~! :)

daniel: no cable and a tv that is has too much static?? don't watch tv when it has too much static.. you'll ruin your eyes~! noO contacts and glasses right?! haha

my goodness

poor eric....all this talk about him.

i wonder if she knows. anyone tell her about the madness going on here?

steve: your post makes it seem like you had something with joyce. might wanna edit it.
eric: just enjoy the attention. i guess.
dustin: ragging on eric isnt complete without you.
joyce: hi joyce.i had nothing to do with this.
i KNOW JOYCE!!!!!!!!!! very WELL
Oh was I not supposed to know??? I thought I was the last one to find out... Everyone knows eric likes Joyce now... But i can't post anything joyce or "u know who" on Eric's blog cuz he threatens me to edit it or he erases it... Eric's a dictator... there's no freedom in Choing

Wednesday, December 11, 2002

Minhee: Oh yeah. I keep forgetting I don't really watch TV anymore. It's very static-y since I don't have an antenna. (and no cable!!)

Dustin: How did you know that Eric likes Joyce? Did someone spill it? Certainly wasn't me.
daniel: haha you're funny... that commercial has been on for about a month now... :)

dustin: i was just joking.. eric doesn't like joyce...
Dude, I just saw a commercial for the greatest TV show, evar.
It's called Joe Millionaire.

Basically the show is just like the Bachelor, except with a twist.
The guy that these girls are trying to get with makes about $19,000 a year, but they think he has 50 million dollars.
Why? Because that's what they're told.
They even visit "his" castle and ride "his" horses.

Oh man these gold diggers are gonna get screwed.
I can't wait.
Daniel likes someone??? Tell Who What???
Eric likes Joyce Kim???
Ah Too bad I still have 11 more months to go... until next thanksgiving
eric:i know you don't like her ... i was just teasing you :)
what crush??
that is not the whole church probably thinks i like joyce kim!!!
eric cho does NOT have a crush on joyce kim...
daniel cho is a big fat liar!!!
eric: so you hab a crush on joyce??? haha ic... coOl she is pretty

daniel: okai ... haha well hope your having a great day :)

Tuesday, December 10, 2002

I stole this from Danny Paik's blog.
No, I don't know who Danny Paik is.


Eric: Don't worry, I didn't tell anyone about your crush on Joyce.

Beast: Your mom is old.

Paulo: Sup.

Dijonnaise: Word.

Minhee: No.
your mom jokes.... i haven't heard that for a long time until couple of weeks ago through eric and daniel... are those jokes still around ? haha you guys are funny

daniel: just ask her out
... steven... friggin steven.
"your mom" NEVER gets old.
"your mom" is friggin gold.
steve: what do you mean the YOUR MOM business is getting old?
you spent the last 24 hours saying that to michelle.
eric: i dont think joyce looks like kirsten dunst. i actually thought about it and compared pics.
i dunno what youre thinking. or who you've been thinking about.
daniel: hey...
From Emode's Love Test.

"Daniel, when you're head over heels, you are an Independent Spirit

You appreciate having the space to do your own thing and don't tend to feel swayed by what others are up to. You're not the type who typically feels the need to hang out at the "cool" clubs or sample the latest restaurants just to say you have. In fact, you may not even know the latest buzz about those things since they really aren't important to you. You probably like to come up with your own ideas of how to spend an entertaining evening and with whom."

ERIC: this YOUR MOM business is getting old... come on... hehehehe
kristen dunst also looks like....
...your mom!!! (ohhhhhh!!!)

Monday, December 09, 2002

I thought Kirsten Dunst was cute.
Then Eric told me she looks like Joyce Kim, Diane's sister.


Forget what I said about Miss Dunst.

I girr you Eric.
it's like I'm paranoid lookin' over my back
it's like a whirlwind inside of my head
it's like I can't stop what I'm hearing within
it's like the face inside is right beneath my skin


the sun goes down
I feel the light betray me

Sunday, December 08, 2002

We saw Action today.

First there was this.

And a lot of this.

And ended with some of this.

Minhee: I can't imagine you cussing. What special thing on Friday?

Heidi: There are no Asians at Islands. I'm white. Christie is half, so she doesn't really count.

Which reminds me of this interesting conversation.

Hope: (pointing at an Asian family) Daniel! Look! It's your family.
Daniel: Yeah. Did you see my other family on table 12?
Hope: This whole town is your family.
Daniel: Wow.
Hope: Haha. Did I offend you?
Christie: Even I was offended.
Daniel: Christie was half-offended.

Jimmy Eat World - If You Don't, Don't

what's wrong baby?
don't they treat you like they should?
did you take 'em for it
or every penny that you could
we once walked out on the beach and once I almost touched your hand
oh how I dreamed to finally say such things
then only to pretend

don't you know I'm thinking?
driving 405 past midnight
you know I miss you
Ninth and Ash on a Tuesday night
I would write to you from a museum mile
and toast to you your whisper, your smile
up the stairs at Wheatherford
a ghost each place I hide

(if you don't, don't know why'd you say so?)
would you mean this please if it happens?
(if you don't know why would you say so?)
won't you get your story straight?
if you don't know, honey why'd you just say so?
well I need this now more than I ever did
if you don't, well honey then you don't

I left you waiting
at the least could we be friends?
should have never started
ain't that the way it always ends?
on my life I'll try today
there's so much I've felt I should say but
even if your heart would listen
doubt I could explain

so here we are now
a sip of wine
a sip of water
someday maybe
maybe someday we'll be smarter
and I'm sorry that I'm such a mess
I drank all my money could get
took everything that we had and I never loved you back

Wednesday, December 04, 2002

"...yea ...right"
Except for one.

minhee kim!!!
I'm in love.
With a girl.

So what if she ain't real?

Tuesday, December 03, 2002

wow...SHE talked to you too!!!
Doojin will help too!

today at work

Christie: That's okay. Daniel will help me. Right?
Daniel: Huh?

Melissa: Do you have a girlfriend?
Daniel: No.
Melissa: Why not?
Daniel: I dunno.
(after 5 seconds of silence)
Melissa: Do you have a boyfriend?
Daniel: No.
(after 5 seconds of Melissa's laughing)
Daniel: You're supposed to say, "why not?"
Melissa: (still laughing) Why not?
Daniel: I dunno.

Ryan (manager): How old are you man?
Daniel: 22.
Ryan: What?! You serious?
Daniel: Yeah. I'm actually turning 23 in January. How old did you think I was?
Ryan: 12. What are you doing still hosting man?
Daniel: Yeah! Why am I still a host?
Ryan: You're a hard worker man. You should get promoted real soon. As soon as you stop being a jackass.
Daniel: Dude, you know I can't help that. It's in my bones!
Ryan: Yeah I know. We'll just give you a button that says "Jackass" that you can wear on your shirt. People will probably give you sympathy tips. "Let it go honey. He's a jackass."
dee made me cuss twice todai in less than 10 minutes... i think she is jealous i don't cuss and the fact she lost her cussing virginity before me...oO and she lost it by saying a worse word than me...
"with great power comes great responsiblity" ...
MJ: Who are you?
SM: You know who I am.
MJ: I do?

Kirsten Dunst is pretty cute.

Monday, December 02, 2002

You people are way too eager to jump to your own conclusions.
I was merely pointing out the fact that it's one month to go 'till 2003.

My tactic is... I have no tactic.
I wait.
I wait for nothing.
hey just wonderin if you're doing anything aside from waiting the month to pass.
if not, you should do something to let her know and then give her the month to either give you the 'go' or the sad 'sorry'.
otherwise it's possible that she may never have known.
whatever your tactics may be,
go daniel, go!
friggin holla.
till what? i do not understand... oOooOooo is it about HER~!~!~!~! ahhhh i'm over my person :)

if it is about HER. hmM why only one more month? i am quite confused ... haha maybe it is not about her.. haha hang in there!


One more month to go...

Sunday, December 01, 2002

aren't u not supposed to tell people ur fortune from the cookie or let them touch it? everyone says it's not....but for some reason..i think that....
oOoO panda express... i can't live without it... haha and i'm sure the girl at the counter thought you were cute so she gave you two (uh huh...) last time i went a guy who worked there gave me 2 and 2 for my sister and brother because i asked nicely :)
I got two fortune cookies from Panda Express for some reason.
I guess the girl at the counter made a mistake.

Or maybe she thought I was cute and gave me an extra one.

Cookie #1: You will soon find new adventure in life.

Cookie #2: You shall attain great wisdom with each passing year.
Well, duh. You only get wiser as you get older. You gain wisdom from each passing experience. Tell me something I don't know!
hi~! woah... DOA... i must practice... you were goOd....

"It was ghostly..."

Pretty tired, but I'm gonna blog since I actually have something to blog about.

I went to the Switchfoot concert at the Roxy.
It was pretty fun, and the band was much better than I thought they would be. The lead singer/guitarist was really good, and even though there was another guitarist (an Asian guy), he ended up playing most of the guitar parts, which was really impressive. The biggest surprise though is that I actually liked the opening bands. People tend to ignore the opening bands 'cause: (a) they usually suck, (b) they're no-namers, (c) both A & B. Well they were none of those. I especially liked the first band, Everybody Else. It was a simple 3-piece rock band, and they sounded very much like The Strokes, and if you have any taste at all, you should know that's definitely a GOOD thing. The second band was Noise Ratchet. They seemed to be a bit more popular with the crowd, and I could see why. They played with insane amount of energy, jumping, hopping, banging, and flinging their instruments around, especially the long-haired bassist. That guy was nuts.

We got a little lost trying to get home after the show, and ended up touring the big houses of Beverly Hills.
Oh and we saw some she-men.
Let's just end it at that.
