more chopsticks!

Friday, February 29th, 2008

ok i must have an obsession with silverware because this is the third entry about it (choplery, pen cap silverware) . >_< as most asian folks do, i use chopsticks pretty often. not just for eating food, but also to grab things from very tight spaces, and stir my drinks for example. chopsticks ...

chopstick cutlery?

Thursday, February 28th, 2008

i seem to have an interest in alternative-use silverware (re: pen cap silverware). otherwise known as "choperly": These function as both chopsticks and spoon, knife, or fork! korean restaurants should place these at the tables, so people who aren't skilled with the chopsticks don't have to ask for forks =P i wonder how easy ...

kimchi for spacemen

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

one of my favorite things in life is kimchi. that's not surprising since i'm korean. most koreans are i guess a bit obsessive about their kimchi. in my case, my favorite kimchis are usually variations of mool-kimchi (water kimchi). Why of all kimchis mool kimchi? because it doesn't smell as much so ...

lately i've really been into various design related things, especially in terms of product design and usability of products... this includes the use of various fonts to convey a message. so it was fun to try to figure out what font I am... the font types are somewhat limited but still ...

y water?

Friday, February 15th, 2008

You maybe asking "What the heck is that?" They're bottles of flavor and vitamin "enhanced" water. Similar to Vitamin Water that's pretty much available everywhere in the states (of which you should consume rarely, similar to soda, considering the amount of sugar in Vitamin Water). At first glance, the nutritional information for ...

bill gates had facebook?

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

sounds like one of the reasons why microsoft decided to invest in facebook was because many employees like Bill Gates himself were hooked on the social networking site. But more recently had to delete his facebook account because of the ridiculous number of friend requests he was receiving. [via: TheSun] many of the readers ...

cooking with Coolio

Wednesday, February 13th, 2008

a while back on a previous version of this blog, I wrote about Christopher Walken and his beer-butt-chicken with pears. Walken's chicken looked impressive and tried to be very professional. but this time i'd like to share about Coolio, of "gangsta's paradise" fame, and his caprese salad. Not as impressive looking or as ...
