Yum dom cha

Whenever my friends are craving dim sum, they usually bring me along for kicks.  Since I speak Cantonese (yes, I’m full Chinese), I just place our food order for them.  Beware though…because I might order those braised chicken feet.  Yum!

I found this rap by Jin a few years ago and always crack up when I listen to it.  I figured I put his music video on my blog to share with all my friends.  For those that speak Cantonese, you’ll know exactly what he’s saying.  If not, there’s a English translation on the YouTube link.  Yum dom cha…sic gor bao.  LOL.  I’m craving dim sum now.  Who wants to go?

Disclaimer: you won’t find any bikini-clad women at your local dim sum shop…Jin probably added them to be more hip hop. haha.

Current Favorite YouTube Artists

I just thought I give props to a few YouTube artists that I’ve subscribed to…awesome voices and most of them are filipino.  Rock on pinoys and pinays!

Gabe Bondoc


JR Aquino


Erin and Roxanne aka HipHopRox

Wish I could have their talent.  It all works out because I’m always around filipinos.  Haha!

rhianna’s “take a bow” – filipina style

Okay, this is for those filipinos/filipinas out there.  I’ve been caught many times making fun of my parent’s strong accent.  My friend takes it all here…she cracks me up all the time.  I just had to post this for laughs.  This is such a hilarious rendition of Rhianna’s “Take a Bow”.

bourdain in saudi arabia

Since I’ve blogged about Bourdain in the past, some folks on behalf of Travel Channel sent me some preview clips of upcoming episodes so all my blog readers can get excited about the next episode.  Well, here’s a post with a preview on tonight’s visit to Saudi Arabia.

I’m actually a bit excited about this episode since:

  • It features another country in the Middle East…an area Bourdain seems to have avoided for awhile (for those Bourdain fans, you probably know why).
  • This episode will expose an area my old college roommate is from.  He actually was from Bahrain, an island country off the coast of Saudi Arabia.  It’s close enough.
  • Danya Alhamrani, a fan of Bourdain, will be tagging along with him.  I’m jealous…very jealous.  Wish I could’ve been that fan, but he already came to Hawaii.

In reading Bourdain’s blog on this episode, I do hope he chooses to visit the Philippines soon.  I’m curious to see how well Augusto Elefanio will represent the country.  I love Filipinos…I love Filipino culture, food, and its beautiful people. (I actually think I am one myself, but to everyone’s surprise, I’m full Chinese and speak Cantonese).

If Augusto doesn’t work out, maybe he can take Happy Slip with him…she did do her fifth episode on Philippines.

Just found out that IolaniAlumni.com gave some props to other fellow alums that blog.  Glad I made it on the list with headshot and all.  Haha.  I’m sure there’s a lot more of us in cyberspace.  For my fellow alums, be sure to tell them to add your blog to the list.

tv. tv. tv.

July is turning into a heavy TV month for me.  There’s so much to watch every week…well from Monday-Thursday at least.  I usually go out Friday through Sunday, so I hardly get to watch primetime TV on the weekends.

Monday: The Mole and No Reservations

  • Wow, No Reservation’s Columbia episode looks hella good.  I need to vacation in South America one day.  I’m excited about the new season of Bourdain so far.  I can’t wait for the Tokyo episode…let’s see where he goes this time around.  Here’s a clip of the Columbia episode (thanks to Travel Channel):

After watching this episode, I’m bummed that Tudo de Bom closed in June.  I always wanted to try that place.  Who could pass up on all-you-can-eat meat buffet?  Where else can you find South American food in Hawaii?

Tuesday: Big Brother

  • My roommate and I started a new game for Big Brother 10 where we collect points based on the team we selected.  It’s kinda like Fantasy Big Brother.  Update as of July 14, I’m in the lead with two points…Jerry was selected as head of household.  Glad I picked him for my team so far.

Wednesday: Project Runway

  • Okay…Project Runway 5 is in two days.  I’m surprised that there hasn’t been too many advertisement for the new season.  Could it be because PR is going to Lifetime next season?  Very suspicious, but I guess Bravo knows what it’s doing.

Thursday: ABDC and Big Brother

  • I’m actually going to miss the initial airing of ABDC this week.  Guess I’ll need to tune it when it reruns.

Can’t wait for TOP CHEF 5 to start in Brooklyn!  Hopefully I’ll be there when it starts filming :o)
