Watching Soccer in Ktown

It's quite the experience.  Words really can't describe the enthusiasm and excitement of watching a Korean soccer game in middle of Korea Town in Los Angeles, CA.  Not sure exactly how many people showed up, but about 2 blocks were filled with spectators.

Every goal attempt was followed by the crowds thundering voices.

Unforgettable atmosphere, i will be back in 2014.

Tae Yeon Gaining some Weight?

Looks like she gained a few minor pounds.  Must be stress.

[Food Review] Jim's Super Burgers

Jim's Super Burgers
9367 Telegraph Rd
Pico Rivera, CA 90660
(562) 949-1481 
I was watching the Mentalist, and in one of the episodes they were discussing the best Chili in California.  That got me the cravings and i ended up searching on Yelp.  I didn't want just Chili.. i wanted Chili Cheese Fries.  I remember wen Carl's Jr. had them for a while back in early 2000.. they stopped making them though.

Anyways, the search ended when i came across the holy grail of all chili cheese fries.. the D.U.I.  Not sure what the history behind the name is, but it's chili cheese fries with carne asada and pastrami.  The large portion feeds 2 people and it costs $10.

How was it?  It was pretty good.  The carne asada was the best part of it.  It could have been better w/o the Pastrami.  Honestly, i probably won't crave it enough to go back.  It was probably hyped up too much by writers on Yelp.  From the looks of it, it probably tastes really good after a night of drinking (just like those bacon wrapped hot dogs outside of clubs in Hollywood). 

To be fair, i did have a slight tummy ache so i didn't have much of an appetite.  If I ever do go back, i will be ordering the smaller size and w/o the pastrami.

Overall Rating: 7/10

Watch all the World Cup matches online Free!

One of the best sites i was able to find.  If you don't have a TV check out for free TV streaming.

[MV] Kim Yeo Hee - My Song

Who is she?  One of those singers that got some fame via social networks like Youtube.  She originally became very popular by using iphone Apps to recreate songs by Beyonce and Lady Gaga.  Her singing abilities were recognized and she was signed by a recording studio and now has her first single MV.

I admit she can sing, and she's cute.  I have high hopes for her.

Goo Hara - Perfect Makeup

It took about an hour to find the correct video file to get these screen caps.. but well worth it.  I remember this is where i thought to myself, "Dang who's this girl - she's really cute!"  The previous articles about Hara was all thanks to the KBS Entertainment Awards where i first noticed Hara.

I had to review all the clips again because i wasn't sure which frames she came out on.  Anyways, her makeup and the cute dress makes her look adorable.

G7 KBS Entertainment Awards

I've been looking for this video for a while.  Forgot to post it after watching it.

Yuri + Goo Hara = Win!

Note to self.  If you're ever on camera don't ever make this face.

California Traffic Cameras Need to Go!

Red light cameras in CA need to go.  Today i was driving at 2:30am approaching an intersection with absolutely 0 cars in all 4 directions.  Visibility was clear and i made a rolling stop at the red light to make a right turn.  I was going a little too fast to stop when the first picture was taken.

I'm pretty sure i'll get a ticket in the mail, and i plan on fighting it since i have nothing else better to do.  However, the fact that it was in the middle of night with absolutely no cars in the vicinity - it's justifiably an unfair citation.  I'll just have to wait and see how much the fine will be.  I've already read through and have a general idea on how i'm going to defend.

If i made this infraction in day time with lots of cars around, i wouldn't mind paying the fine and going to traffic school.. but under my circumstances i'm a little ticked off.

There are talks about installing Radar censored traffic cams in CA.. do you know what that means?  For you, it means driving even 5mph over the speed limit will give the State the right to issue a ticket with no officer present.  For the State, it means over 1 billions dollars in revenue.

CA is in debt, and guess how these politicians want to even the State budget.  sigh.

Kim Sung Hwee Live - "Listen"

KSH singing live at Shin Hyun Ho's concert.  This made me think about her chances if she were to go on Americal Idol.. i think she hit the notes pretty well.

Kim Sung Hwee (김성희) - Who is She?

You probably don't know who she is.  She is the former member of Kara before she was replaced by Goo Hara.  The rumor is that she left the group because of her falling grades at school, but in reality it was because she chose God over the entertainment business (this is inside scoop you won't find anywhere else).

Anyways, i just found out about her recently and while doing my research, came across her old clips.  DANG she has some big wind pipes!  It's too bad we won't see her sing professionally.. it was her calling for sure.

Check it out:

Also i found out something i had forgotten.. Hyori did a drama called Three Leaf Clover!  Anyways, the main OST Single was sang by Kim Sung Hwee.

Song of the Day: Miss S - What is Love?

It's been a while since i blogged.  There have been quite a few deaths in my vicinity the past weeks.   I lost a really awesome friend Nancy by cancer.  I found out my cousin's younger brother committed suicide by jumping in front of a moving train.  Another girl i know also committed suicide by hanging herself in a hotel room.  It's so sad when you hear about suicide or death by illness.  I didn't know about what was going on with any of those people.. and had i known i wish i could of been able to make a difference and changed their lives.

The saying, you don't really know what you have until you lose it has significant meaning in these types of situations.

I've been playing soccer 2x a week.. and bought myself some cleats.  However, i have been getting injured!  My groin hurts, my big toe was stepped on 4x now and it turned purple, and my rib cage is ringing in pain.  However, i do notice that contact sports truly help building a new physic.  I now just need to recover so i can play better.  I remember back when i was in my teens i could fly around from mid field.. but its hard to do now.

I already posted 2 songs by Baek Ji Young that mirrored my love life.  Now i found another one.. it's an old song but here it is in case you haven't heard it.  I'm too lazy to write a lyric translation so please go search for it.
