Thank god for Venture Film clearbra

The first picture below shows what happens when you hit a tire kicked up by the car in front of you at 70mph, it cracked my fog housing, popped out my parking sensor and completely scratched up my car.


after trying out multiple scratch remover, rubbing compound, I read it on the car forum that the film maker recommends using 70% isopropyl alcohol, and it did the trick! after rubbing it for at least an hour in the 140F garage in AZ, the result is below. 90% of the scuff marks are gone, and it will be perfect if I ever remove the clearbra. What a great investment.

Why I LUV Southwest Airlines

I rarely post videos from other sources, but this is too entertaining. They are one of the friendliest airlines I’ve been on and that’s why I almost fly them exclusively for domestic flights. Amazing talent.

Blackberry Curve 8900 – UPDATED

[UPDATE] I was not too happy with the all black keyboard and wanted a little contrast, so I bought the silver keyboards off an AT&T version of the 8900 and put it on mine, I think it looks so much better (compared to the below image), agree? I’ve also put a black batt cover instead of the silver one from T-Mobile to make it flow better.


Second Gen Curve

My new phone, this thing is too sexy to not upgrade to from my old 8320.

Howl at the Moon & karl Strauss Brewery, Universal City Walk

Immediately after McG’s, we went to meet up with more Ryan’s coworkers and friends at City Walk for Howl at the Moon Piano Bar, it was probably the “high-est” place I’ve been in a while, we had to leave the place because it was way too crowded and when we went back to it after 2 hours, it got even worse! We were forced to migrate to the brewery directly across, Karl Strauss started its brewery in San Diego and was my favorite beer in college. After this, we ended up in Jillians which I have to note myself to never go again, it became a hispanic dance club after hours, nothing wrong with it, but it gave me the chills.

McG’s Irish Pub and Grill, Chatsworth, CA

This past weekend, I finally went to the bar that my friends have been raving about, McG’s Irish Pub and Gill in Chatsworth. We went a bit too early so the place wasn’t too crowded, it was actually a good thing as drinks came really fast and we spent a quite bit of time throwing darts. What’s good about this place was their selections of beers and of course, we drank 2 pitchers of Franziskaner Hefe-Weisse.

Photo Catchup: After Dinner Party

That was me attempting to play with Ryan

After the company’s Christmas party at Bourbon Steak House in Scottsdale, a few of us decided it was way too early to go back, so they all came to my place for an after party of drinking and guitar heroes. I was busy making Mojitos & mixing other drinks, so again, not too many pictures especially the people that left early, sorry! Continue reading
