RIP JD

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on March 29, 2008

This morning I got a message from my manager saying that another manager, named JD, got shot and killed last night…I couldn’t believe it. JD was my assistant manager when I first started working for Verizon and was currently the store manager at the Daly City store. The crazy thing is, is that I was supposed to be at the same bar that JD was at. My friends reggae band was performing at Underdogs on 19th and Irving. JD was there with some Verizon coworkers and I guess after the bar was closing, they headed to the pizza place across the street. I’m not exactly sure how everything went down, but it ended up with the loss of two lives. Here’s an article from SFGate.

BULLSHIT!!

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on March 26, 2008

SUCH A BULLSHIT ASS CALL!!!! Grr…I watched the last few seconds of the game again on You Tube cause I wanted to see what the announcers thought about that last call and even they were saying that shit was the wrong call!!!! Stupid ass refs.

Warriors vs. Lakers

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on March 25, 2008

So I went to a Warriors game for the first time in a couple years. And technically it was only the second NBA game I’ve ever been to…that I know of. Anyways, my friend Brad was able to get me tickets through his friend that’s a season ticket holder. Got pretty damn lucky with them though cause originally his friend already had a buyer but they backed out. Sucks for them! Haha So I asked Mike if he wanted to go considering he’s a Laker’s fan. Boooo!
We stopped by Walmart and ended up walking by this…poor bird! It’s flat like a pancake 😦



Seats were pretty damn good.


Mike



The score at half time and a very excited fan. Haha


Baron and Monta!!! Yay!!


Again, I love percussion.



This picture reminds me of the Nintendo game Double Dribble…


The crowd was yelling “BEAT LA!!!” and it reminded me of being at a Giants vs. Dodgers game. Haha

And then the excitement.

I was getting all antsy and wanted to stand the whole time.


Ugh…pretty much the final score…

This is what we went to Walmart for. Mike wanted to get one of those blow horns to celebrate. Haha

BOOOOOOOOOO LAAAAKERS!!!!!!! But thanks for the jersey! Haha

Fun night.

At least we won the night before…

So the Warriors are playing the Mavericks on Sunday. Anyone down to go? It’s my birthday!!

So here’s the question. Warriors game? or BBQ?

Hmm…pondering…

4 Days of Spring Break

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on March 23, 2008

So Wednesday my optometrist called to let me know my glasses came in. I had a hard time choosing between two different frames…so I ended up getting both. One’s a little more funny, which you’ll see in pictures later, and these are a little more normal. Haha


The brand’s called Koali and for some reason these caught my attention. I think it’s because of the design on the sides and the colors. Anyways, I wore the other pair out that night.

So I haven’t really been going out as much because of school and work but I decided to go out this week because it was spring break. Felix was in town visiting from Long Beach so Wednesday night we ended up going to Etiquette lounge which my friend, and DJ, Chris Larot throws every Wednesday. He gave me and my friends a bottle of champagne which we pretty much finished in a good 10/15 minutes. Thanks again Chris! After the champagne came a couple pretty fat ass shots of Hennessey (thanks Tina). We ended up going to Skylark after where a friend of mine was celebrating his birthday. I didn’t have my camera though. Some how that night my camera ended up at Augs’ house.








Thursday night I went to grab a drink with Augs at Double Dutch. That was the first time in HELLA long that we went out by ourselves! Fun and random times with my wingman!!

Friday I went to BJs with Trae and Peter and then drank at a friends house later and just chilled.

Saturday Tracy and I went downtown and just walked around. Some kids that I guess are part of a drum corps or percussion line were performing. I used to LOVE percussion so this was pretty dope to me.

We walked up a couple blocks to The Hundreds store. They just opened on Thursday so I wanted to check it out. Was a pretty cool spot. I bought some socks.

That night I went with Trae and Peter to Miyake in Palo Alto for Muriel’s birthday. If you love sake bombs and a fun environment you might want to have your birthday at Miyake one of these days. Inside they make you stand on the chairs to take your sake bombs. Loud music and disco lights. And yes it’s a restaurant so they also have food.



Me, the birthday girl, and Trae





Ize, Heeze, Dom, and their cousin Rose met up with us at Blue Chalk after.








When we first walked into this place the whole dance floor was DEAD. By 1130 it was CRACKIN!

Arnelle and Ian picked me up and we headed to 111 Minna to meet up with the rest of the boys.


I’ve known this guy since 6th grade. And we still have class at school together. Haha


One of the many Carlo’s!!



The boys…minus Kev, Lito, By, and Marc.



See what happens to my eyes when I’m drunk?



Another Carlo!! We were the best valets ever.



Now I haven’t seen this chick in awhile!!

The night didn’t end there. We headed to LC’s to eat…and of course my heffer ass got the fried chicked dinner meal. YUM!

That’s pretty much it for the end of the weekend. Today Reg took me and Marjie out for some dim sum and then we helped her build furniture for her new place. I didn’t have my camera, again, so I couldn’t take hilarious pictures of us trying to put her bed and dresser together. But it was pretty damn funny.

So tomorrow’s back to school. Sucks. But I’m going to the Warriors vs. Lakers game! YAY!

Keep yah posted.

Cats & Robot Dogs

Posted in Uncategorized by krisyee on March 21, 2008

Tuesday I worked another shift for the Asian American Film Festival @ the Clay theater on Fillmore. I got to watch a documentary called The Cats of Mirikitani. If you ever get to watch it, you should. It’s a great film following a Japanese American artist named Jimmy, living in the streets of New York. Everyday he draws, mostly of memories from the internment camps. It’s pretty interesting. I guess they showed the documentary last year at the festival but it was so good they did a private screening and Q&A;’s for a couple high schools. Check it out.

And then there are these robots that are gonna take over the world.

Ni Hao, Kai-lan

I love Haight and seeing random things like this on the floor.




This past Saturday I had my first shift volunteering for the Asian American Film Festival. The festival’s going on all week long playing different films at Kabuki, Clay, and Castro Theater, so if you have time check out the listing of films and go watch one. I heard opening night was crazy and they had a showing of the new Harold and Kumar movie which was of course sold out.



My sister.


My sister and I started to get hungry so we walked down FIllmore and we found this gelato place that had paninis. With the lunch special you get free gelato with any flavor you’d like all for about $6. Thought it was a pretty good deal!


The second film people started to line up for was called “The Killing of a Chinese Cookie”. It’s primarily about the history of the fortune cookie from who designed it to where it’s birthplace was. I didn’t get to watch it but the line was pretty damn long wrapping around the corner.


After the festival I met up with Mike to watch Semi-Pro. I saw the preview for Step Brothers which stars Will Ferrell and John Reilly. It looks pretty damn funny. And I can’t wait for this…

I never really watched the show until Trina got us into it! Now I just watch a shit load of reruns that come on at night since I haven’t gotten the dvds yet. But the trailer looked good. I’ll probably end up watching it with the girls. Considering most girls will watch it with their girlfriends I can only imagine hella girls waiting in line opening night. Haha May 30th!

That night I headed to Cha Cha Cha’s to meet up with Liz, Syl, and Marie. I haven’t had sangria in awhile, but it was deeeelicious. After a few cups of sangria and feeling a little buzzed, we headed to Poleng to meet up with the crew for Chiara’s birthday. While walking through the door I ran into Barry from Imeem who I had just met during the week.

And then we saw the birthday girl!
Chiara and her sister.


Syl, Me, Liz, Marie

First sangria…now some Henn…all bad. Haha











These crazies! Just got their tats RIGHT before coming out. Haha





Whenever Arnelle gets a hold of my camera there are ALWAYS hella pictures. Unfortunately I’m too lazy to put all of them on here. Plus everyone looks wasted. Haha So if you wanna see more give me your email and I’ll send them to you.
