There’s a Limit to Everything

Recently, I was involved in an ice cream eating contest. There were 4 flavors, Asians (mango), Blacks (chocolate),  Whites (red bean), and Plants (green tea). I don’t like chocolate so I had a lot of mango, red bean and green tea. However, it felt weird eating my own kind so I only had 1 scoop of mango. I was fine eating away at red bean and green tea flavored ice creams, but the red bean flavor was too sweet for my liking (White people’s sweets such as donuts are too damn sweet for Asians). So I mainly had green tea. I love all kinds of green tea flavored food as they are not too sweet, not too bitter. At first, it was very enjoyable. I could smell the scent of the green tea while eating it, but after 3-4 cups, they started to lose their taste. By the 5th cup, it had no taste whats so ever, and I was very full from eating all kinds of Japanese food. In the end, I couldn’t eat anymore green tea, and waved the white flag. Congratulations to Jyvblamo for taking down Yoshi General in an ice cream eating contest. The moral lesson was: Canada is good because we are multicultural. If Mr.Canada was in an eating contest, he would win, because he will never get tired of the food.

Multicultural ice cream.

Battle LA


Just watched Battle LA. Throughout the entire movie, I expected Sergent Dent to die, because he felt guilty for the death of the soldiers who were under his command. Anyways, I think the entire movie was a military campaign to promote the US Army and attract new recruits. The message of the movie was: if you want to have something to live for such as the chance to save your friends and families, then join the US marines. I didn’t get why they didn’t just destroy the meteors with missiles as they approached Earth’s atmosphere like they did in a lot of other movies.

Good: realistic explosions, variety of guns and other weapons, unique design of aliens

Bad: portrays US marines like they are the shit, lack of variety of death by the aliens

Overall quality 6.5/10

The true identity of the aliens.

Expired Chocolate Milk

Took a couple of gulps of expired chocolate milk. Tasted metallic with long lasting aftertaste. I wonder if I will get stomachache. I drank around 50ml before realizing it actually went bad. I knew it was expired and all, but it’s chocolate milk. I mean how bad can it really get? I better not feel bad during my stats exam tomorrow.

Grocery Day

Today I went to buy groceries, because at Conestoga Mall students get 10% discounts on Tuesday. I was sitting at the bus stop, waiting for the bus with 4 bags of groceries. This woman comes up to me and asks, “Is that cart yours?”, pointing at a shopping cart nearby. “Some body has to take it back you know.” I told her, “Nope, I carried them like I always do in Dota”. She looked puzzled and walked away.

Yoshi General: A Shanghai Expo Experience

Yoshi General traveled to Shanghai last summer to pay a honorable visit to the great Shanghai Expo. Due to traffic jam caused by 400 thousand people who went to the Expo that day, Yoshi was unable to visit the most famous pavilions. He ended up visiting only Australia, Canada and US Pavilions. The pavilions were disappointments, totally not worth the one hour, waiting in line. Nevertheless, it was a wonderful experience witnessing people from all over the world gathering in one location. It made Yoshi feel connected to people from more than 50 different countries.

P.S. Have you seen in movies when a person holding a video recorder spins in circle filming his surroundings? Yeah, Yoshi did that. It was awesome, although he did bump into like 10 different people.

A Little Lesson on the Japanese Language

I commonly hear people call attractive girls by the term “kawaii”. This is often incorrectly applied since “kawaii” or かわいい  has the strict meaning of cute. It does not mean sexy or beautiful. I am tired of hearing the Wapanese  overuse the term “kawaii” on every girl they see, so today I am going to introduce some variations to describe a good looking girl.

“kirei” (きれい) – pretty, beautiful

“utsukushii” (うつくしい) – beautiful

“beppin” (べっぴん) – exceptionally beautiful women

“kirei” describe a pretty women. It can address one part of the body, the whole body or in combination with the clothes and accessories. The word applies to things as well as humans. It is most appropriate when describing a woman with limited cute features and generally accepted beauty. Cuteness often comes with the characteristics and pose of the girl. For example a girl pretending to be a cat can be thought as cute. However, the word “kirei” has no association with the situation. It is simply a generally accepted concept of beauty.

“utsukushii” is one big step away from cuteness used to describe beautiful things or people. Use this when you want to describe a women who looks gorgeous or marvelous. It is more suitable for older women perhaps past their teen, who has lost their young innocent appeal, but replaced by sexiness with a mature tone.

“beppin” is a very old word specifically used to define “bijyo” or beautiful women. Not only does the woman have to look gorgeous with the make up and clothes, but the base has to be beautiful as well. The word “betsu” means different or exceptional, so make sure the woman is outstandingly pretty or beautiful.

"kawaii" - Hirano Aya pretending to be a stupid puppy trying to eat a leaf.

"kirei" - Charlize Theron has a generally accepted pretty face.

"utsukushii" - A marvelous looking Catherine Zeta Jones.

A picture of “beppin” is unavailable due to the fact that they have to be exceptionally beautifully. Everyone has their own idea of exceptional beauty so I will leave it to your imagination.

Time to Move On

I always thought Fantasy Basketball was where I belonged. I thought when I am upset, Fantasy Basketball will be there for me. I was wrong. Fantasy Basketball was a fake. It gave me hope  only so that it can take it away later. Every year, I get hopeful that this will be the year to bring home gold. It’s been 3 years. It hasn’t happened. It’s time to move on.
