1st Things 1st…

16 04 2010

So the 1st thing I have to talk about today before I get into anything is the Raptors.

So, they just finished their season this past week and what a disappointing season it was. Well… the second half at least. We went from 5th place to out of the playoffs in terrible fashion. I’ll admit yes, we had a lot of injury problems coming out of the All Star break but really we played with no heart. Our big acquisition in Turks was a HUGE disapointment to say the least and our key players didn’t step up. The whole second half to the season was basically summed up in one game: Sunday, April 11th against our 8th place rivals, the Chicago Bulls. Being tied for 8th place with Chicago meant that it was a must win, Probably the biggest game of the year for the Raptors and they came out and put in a non-effort to lose get beat murdered 104-88… On our home court! It was very disappointing to say the least.

Now the big question on Raptor’s fans minds is will Chris Bosh return next season. IMHO why should he? We’ve missed the play offs 5-7 years that he has been here and every year it is a disappointment. The only way I see him coming back is if Bryan Colangelo makes some BIG BIG moves in the off season and brings a STAR back court guy who can produce his own shots to Toronto AND pay Chris some big dollars. Obviously I hope that he does return as he is a phenomenal basketball player but we’ll see what happens I guess.

Anyways… enough of that. Cant change the past so no point in bitching about it… that was pretty much a waste of time and space.. but I thought i’d share my thoughts.

Heres a couple of pics from the week so far.

Went for a stroll in the Distillery District in Toronto... got this shot as we walked in... I love the sky!

There she is! Got this shot on the water at Cherry Beach... Super fun I think!

Still at Cherry Beach... I wish there was actually something there instead of just the sand.. but I like this shot anyways

The CN Tower and Skydome... yah I called it the Skydome... nuff said!

I remember this used to scare the shit out of me when I was younger... to this day I still do not understand this piece of art?

Thats about it.. I was gonna post some of my recent trip to Vegas but I think i’m gonna save that for its own Blog posting…. Vegas trips definitely deserves its own posting. Specially epic trips like that one…

Anyways.. stay tuned for that one… hopefully get around to that one Sunday…

Later Dayz

SLACKER!

First off! Who watched that Masters this past weekend? Sick Shit eh? Too bad Tiger couldn’t pull it off, but I have to say considering the circumstances he played pretty well. A.Kim…you got it next year homie… I’m not even gonna say anything about the eventual winner, Mr. Mickelson because I hate him (for reasons I’m not sure). Although he did hit some phenomenal shots on the back nine to lock it up…. aaaaanyways… on to the pictures.

Yaya! I know I’ve totally been slacking off on this…. From this day forward I promise to put more of an effort into updating this more frequently… Lets set a goal of at least once a week! That shouldn’t be too difficult, right? So lets see…. These are clearly not even close to what being caught up… but I still need to catch you guys up… Hopfully One day I’ll actually be caught up with my picture postings and all will be good and balanced again… So hear goes!\

So Last posting I showed you our delicious Steamed Pork Belly Buns that we made from scratch. This is a picture of what our kitchen looked like after our experiment... DISASTER!

Gotta chance to check out the "Art of Marketing" Seminars in Toronto last month too... It was pretty good... opened my mind to something new and learned alot! Here is a pic of Seth Godin speaking... This guy has pretty interesting things come out of his mouth... and his brain... you can read his blog at http://sethgodin.typepad.com/ .... He says stuff that you probably hear everyday.. but just rewords it and makes you think about it more/differently... very smart man!

Went to Coras for breakfast one day with a lady friend and got this lovely plate delivered to me.... thought I'd snap a pic and share.

Got invited to go to an UofT event called Asian Foodprints 2010: Rediscovering Japan Through a Culinary Odyssey... Pretty interesting event. They do seminars in the morning where you are introduced to the Japanese Culture through their food and How the food has impacted the culture in Japan. Then there is a dinner at the end of the day. Unfortunately I was only invited to the dinner.

Where we had a sampling of different Sake's from Japan. For those of you who don't know, Sake is a traditional rice wine that is Drank in Japan.

There was this plate of delicious traditional Japanese appetizers on our table when we arrived.

And this delicious Japanese buffet with some ridiculously good food... If i could remember exactly what was on the buffet i would tell you... but sadly, since I waited this long to update I have forgotten....

And the best picture in here... Woke up one morning sat down on my couch and found the sun showing me some mad love! so I snapped a pic and here it is... Summer is finally here... The Golfing will commence shortly...

That is all folks… Like i said… I am promising that I will post more regularly… so look for a post lets say every Sunday for now… and if theres more that i want to tell you/show you… maybe any other day of the week too!
