Aside from the occasional “Asian Mom” posts, I’ve never really blogged too much about my personal life (or posted any pictures), so I thought I’d share some great news with everyone… I’m engaged!! The lovely lady in the picture is my girlfriend Jenny (we’ve been dating for over 3 years). I asked her to marry me on July 12, 2011.
For those who are interested, there’s footage of the actual marriage proposal! It took a lot of planning, but it turned out to be an awesome success (meaning, she had no idea and she cried a lot). If you want to view the video, please check out and follow OUR new blog at www.majorbrowniepoints.com!!
Watching the NBA Finals with my Asian Mom…
Mom: Who you want to win?
Me: I want Dirk to win.
Mom: You should say Africa American, ok?
Me: What? (pause) No, DIRK, not dark!
Me: Dirk is that tall German guy on the Mavs!
Mom: (long pause) Ah! No Whiskey!
Me: Yes, Nowitzki.

Watching Toy Story 3 with my Asian Mom…
Mom: Did the pizza make this?
Me: (pause) Yes, Pixar made this.
Mom: They should at least make a sex Toy Story, you know?
Mom: Is the 3 the last one? They need to make a three more, be a rich!
Me: (chuckle) Oh, make 6? Yeah… this is the last one.
Mom: Oh, too bad.
Me: Yeah, I guess.
Mom: The disrespecting me is no good.
Me: (pause) Umm… ok, I know.
Mom: Very bad moobie.
Me (thinking in my head): What the hell is she talking about?? (pause) Oh… Despicable Me… no good… got it).
Things That Only Asian Girls Like To Do…
1. Throw the peace sign over their eye when taking pictures… why??
2. Make (or buy) double eye lids.
3. Wear scarves in the summer.
4. Wear black rather than work out.
5. Hate on things that they actually really like (Ex. their bangs, Forever 21, MSG, their crooked teeth, ugly guys with money, etc.).
