what’s news-
business and finance
got the wall street journal on my driveway.  10am in the washington dc area, and finally this friday weather cooled off after the hot streak.

i guess it’s just me, but the green tea frap that i’ve been getting from starbucks has an aftertaste.  now i felt sorry for asking the young lady in san bruno to give me another drink.  i just ordered another one in rockville this morning and i still got the zhing.

been waking up around 9 or 10am in the east coast after staying in norcal for over 2 weeks.  i’m flying out this sat again.  just gotta make sure the transport guys get my benz before i fly out.  will be celebrating father’s day in sactown… of course, after hanging out with family that day.  a good friend and future banker of my future venture asked me to bring swimming trunks to celebrate at his backyard pool.  he’s younger but he’s already a dad.  i’m not saying i gotta catch up

went to davis last week to deposit a check at a local credit union.  the place hasn’t changed quite a bit.  although this is where we used to hang out at in-n-out burger and some other joints back in the day, the place still reminded me of the good ole laid back days.

was out in meetings this week.  as i saw the potential of this niche diner in the east coast, i will be opening up a place in the new mall in downtown sf.  multiple streams of income.

took pictures of gw parkway and 66 after tellin eternallove that i will replicate her previous pics before i leave dc.  i ended up getting a collage… and i still couldn’t find my cord to upload :p

played beach volley for 4 hours this past weekend.  and i got a bleeder a bit bigger than the size of a quarter.  so i’ve been doing the captain morgan pose while taking a shower to prevent water from reaching the laceration.  of course, the healing process is faster when you keep that bad boy dry.  nonetheless, i haven’t tried the pose while sitting on the jacuzzi tub yet.  :p

it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you handle what happens to you… they responded which is positive instead of reacted which is negative – zig ziglar 

i guess everything starts from within us.  other people don’t create what happens to us next.  even if the world was gonna end, it is up to us whether we want to do something positive or go with the flow.  so no matter what happens everyday, keeping a constant grateful disposition is paramount.

      I noticed you commented on my blog last week and thought you might be interested to know I have posted a new entry this week.  It is titled “Stupid Girl, Stop.” 
      This week’s question: Do you believe you’re not obligated to listen to the girl complain about her boy situation or listening and being there is what makes you a friend in the first place, even if it means being there all 52 million times she makes the same mistake?”
      Check it out and comment at

      I type very fast.
      For your layout… try soemthing simple… it’s usually better than gviving someone a headache

    19. I am not a fan of the green tea frap (I think it has a weird taste too)… I think they have a Tazo green tea latte that is better… But real green tea is always better… healthy and no calories!!!!

    20. KatZone says:

      hahahaha that video had me rolling! I love the green tea frap…try the one w/ blackberry in it too! But recently I’ve been hooked on their passion fruit lemonade…so refreshing! 🙂  Have fun in CA!! I know how much you love it there.

      that was beyond keeping it real man- plus, she had too many metaphors to claim she was keeping it real!

    22. mooks_dayoo says:
