Sometime around the summer of 2012, I created a Twitter account. It’s a micro blogging platform… Meaning you can write a quick blog, status update, or whatever you want in 140 characters or less. You gotta filter the mindless stuff and SPAM related Twitter accounts… then you can find some great material, cool entertainment, and [...]
In loving memory of my sister in law, Angela Fisher. Here’s a tribute to life and why you need to be living your dreams.
Meat and potatoes are the staple food for many North Americans, and Koreans are known for their savory BBQ’s dishes. So how do I, a Korean American, survive as a vegan?
An old post about the Marines I thought I’d share..
Part 2 of my post “Losing My Mind & Doing it With Style”. How a heated discussion with my wife while, she was possessed by TOM, turned into a battle with my inner dragon.
Yup! It’s been a couple months since I’ve written in here. Spent last Thanksgiving in Vancouver… then 5 weeks in Cancun, Mexico… then 2 weeks back in Vancouver for Christmas/New Years… then off to Los Angeles for a month. Next thing I know, it’s mid February already! Time flies!
After a few years in Vancouver, I noticed some significant differences in Canadians vs. Americans. I’ve lived in cities like Denver, Phoenix, Santa Barbara and San Diego. And I grew up in Los Angeles – lived there for the better part of 30 years. LA is a big city, something like 18 million strong. Compare [...]
Going to work because you choose to, and not because you have to, is a luxury everyone deserves to enjoy. Stunts is exactly one of those things that blesses my life. When you follow your bliss, your work becomes play.
…continued from the last post. So after a long series of flashbacks of the last 30 months, here we are. Present day – 3/3/09 So here I was on my unexpected road trip to LA. Considering what had happened I was actually very chipper and almost amused at the whole situation. I was driving the [...]

So here we are. A series of posts that cover the epiphany I had during a 30 hour drive that symbolized the culmination of 30 months. It all started with Trouble At The Canadian Border. That led to A Road Trip To Epiphany. Then a look into A Snapshot Of My Life In 2006. Followed by My Wife Getting [...]
…3 of us were living like sardines in a studio apartment in Vancouver. It was a humble downgrade coming from a 3 story, 4 bedroom condo in Los Angeles. Vancouver is a beautiful city, but not when you’re forced to relocate. Not at first anyway.
It was time for me to go to LA and pack up everything. The day was July 3, 2006. My 30th birthday and I was on the road again, by myself on a 1600 mile trip to reflect. Not exactly a happy birthday. My life suddenly changed drastically.
A couple years later I found out that the physical exam I took was something I hesitate to even journal. Let’s just say the doctor was ‘far too thorough’ in his examination…
So we left Vancouver and headed to the U.S. border to go home to LA. When we arrived at the border we were asked to pull over for some reason and step inside for further questioning. They pulled Lisa aside to interrogate her …for 6 hours!!
In order to understand the epiphany I had, we need to go back in time. Flashback to 2006… I suddenly went from a bachelor in debt to financially supporting a Canadian wife and teenage boy.
Picking up from the last post… …here I was, on a forced road trip to Los Angeles. I had just enough in the bank to cover gas and food for the trip. As a new Canadian immigrant I had no credit, so I had recently gotten a prepaid credit card. That was my only life line [...]

Instead of boring you with an ABOUT ME section, I thought it’d be more interesting for you if I introduced myself by sharing some insights while battling my inner dragons. I’ll share 2 of my insights. The first one is about Recovery. Although I’m Asian on the outside, culturally I’m very westernized. I grew up [...]
Is it possible for a cat to be vegan? What about milk, cheese, chasing and eating mice and birds? This is our cat who was VEGAN for the last 3 years of her life. She lived to be 14. Her name was “Naluck”, (means fancy face in Thai). She was an rare exotic cat, a [...]

When I made my decision I shared the news with my mom. Coming from a country where military service is mandatory and viewed honorably, my mom was initially happy. She spoke of how great it would be for discipline and to learn some occupational skills for the future. Surprised by her support, I told her I was joining the infantry. Then she flipped out and started yelling at me!
We spoke every single day. My phone bills for just those first 2 or 3 weeks was over $2500! Stupid me. (I thankfully negotiated myself out of the entire bill!) I didn’t realize that my nationwide calling plan was umm nationwide only. Oh yeah… Canada really is a whole other country!
