Hong Kong 2008

I'll be going to HK Nov 22 to Dec 14. It's going to be exciting with tours into China.

As of today.. there's only ONE seat left on my direct flight to HK. I hope it oversells! I'm prepared to be compensated by Air Canada!

Enjoy the video below.

Guitar Hero 4: World Tour

Yes, it’s finally here and I’m going to line-up Sunday morning for it. Guitar Hero 4 is much like Rock Band with mic and drum set… but better. Reasons why I’m buying this.

  • Eagles – Hotel California!!!!
  • Michael Jackson – Beat It
  • Bon Jovi – Livin’ on a Prayer
  • Velocity sensitive drum set. (the harder you hit the drum, the louder the sound).
  • Drum set includes two symbols.
And more awesome songs

MSRP expected at $200 for the special edition. Prices should skyrocket for the holiday season.

Parking Ticket #2

I drove down to Maddy's last night for a round of drinks with Tal and Julian. They were flying out the next morning to work in the US-of A. Moving right along, I drove to Maddy's two years ago and got a ticket for parking on Madison Avenue after midnight. Those lame parking enforcement agents issued my ticket at 12:18am! A $30 fine.

This time, I was proactive and decided to move the car at ~11pm. I walked down to my car and there it was, another ticket. I checked the ticket and the street signs. Apparently they changed from two years ago. Parking is not permitted unless by permit after 10pm! Another $30 fine.

I've only been to Maddy's 3 times. Of those times, I drove twice and got a parking ticket twice.

Now from the advise from my legal council (Cindy, Brigitte), I have decided to challenge this in court in hopes that a court date will not be set and the ticket thrown.

Governor Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin was on SNL last night. Not too funny, too much hype. Check it out yourself.
