11-02-28 Universal, again…

Posted: March 1, 2011 in Uncategorized

Heard this song on the radio while driving to pick up Michael today,
Just The Way You Are by Bruno Mars

Was at Universal yesterday with Michael, my second time this year. Some of the pictures below are actually from the previous visit with Dana and Betty. Good thing their single day ticket is now also an annual pass, so I get to go in for free~~ Saved 74 bucks~

The Simpsons Ride is a simulator ride that is much more exciting than the ones we play with…

The Kwik-e-mart where you can buy Simpsons souvenirs. The outside of the Jurassic Park and Mummy.

This is Wisteria Lane, from Desperate Housewives. They were shooting that day, so we couldn’t drive in there. The last one is the house from the movie Psycho.

This is the scene from that Tom Cruise movie… World War or something… or was it War of the Worlds… Anyway, it’s actually a real Boeing 747 bought for 60,000 US, but it cost them 200,000 dollars to transport it to the Universal set.

It was cold, so I had to get something warm to drink… Yeah, you know it’s cold when I say it’s cold… Then it’s the stage for the Water World show…

Just got back from a 48-hour trip from SFO…

48 hours include flight time…

Anyway, the long awaited furniture finally arrive yesterday.. or day b4… well, within the last 48 hours lah…
Mom and I picked it out, here are the pics…

The dinning table, it’s all glass with stainless steel, the glass is curved at the ends, and has a little extra room underneath the table top for some.. storage….  The chairs are also stainless steel frame, the leather.. I’m not sure if it’s real or not… the back of the chair is… umm… kind of like a corset…

The sofa, it’s surface is cloth, frame wood, with stainless steel legs/feet… wrapped in… yes, Shiny Fake Crocodile Leather…
It’s not that bad lah… the coffee table has not arrived yet, but it’s kind of like the dinning table, all glass curved so it stands on it’s own with a drawer sorta suspends in the middle… will put up pics after it arrives.. and the old cushions from the old sofa… mom put it next to the window where she dreams to put in a old Chinese wooden opium bed… well… we’ll see… btw, the cat seems to like the sofa.. cuz it’s the only place she sleeps now…

Rainy Taipei

Posted: May 26, 2008 in Uncategorized

I really don’t like rainy days… But I prefer this over hot and humid…

I think this is the first time this month that I get to stay in TPE for more than 2 days consecutively…
Nothing too exciting happened lately… Other than… umm…. yeah… nothing…

Taxes, yes, Taxes… I had to pay taxes… I was going to protest against it, but then…
I am afraid that the IRS might chew my ass off… so….
Since I only have one source of income, and not a lot of deductibles….
It only took like… 10 minutes to do it…

Anyway, I guess I’ll post some pics up as usual… just some random pictures from the past few weeks~

These pics from left to right…
Lot’s of airplanes around us, each little diamond is an airplane, and the number shows if they are lower or higher than us
in thousand feet. and the little arrow up means climbing and down for descend.
The middle pic is our ACARS system. It was my Tokyo flight, and the airplane just came back from shipping the goods
for the earthquake victims in China. Flight time was only 2:44.
Last pic… just so Liz will believe me that you CANNOT bring roast duck back…

This was our cargo from Anchorage back to Taipei. I think it originated from Chicago.. but I could be wrong…
Guess what it is~~~~~ These were stacked pretty tall, taller than me…

I wonder… when wii I be able to afford this… probably never…

After… 15 days off

Posted: February 22, 2008 in Uncategorized
After 15 days off, I finally started working…
 
cargo flight to LAX, no fun… I didn’t get to fly, but since I was flying with two captains, I had to be on seat. Good thing I still remember where everythng is.. hahaha
it was foggy in TPE, and Crap weather in LA… good practice for the captain.. hahaha
 
Flying back in 24 hours, just in time to make it back for Sunday, the 24th…
 
Sun coming up over the clouds…

We were doing around Mach 0.836, TAS 501 knots 
and thanks to the jetstream over the Pacific, Ground Speed 620 knots 
after a simple conversion, equals to 1116 km/h…
that’s how we fly to LA in 10hrs20min…

CNY

Posted: February 17, 2008 in Uncategorized
When I got my Feb. schedule, I was thinking I must hav done something good…
 
Only three flights this month, TPE-ANC-ORD-SFO-TPE, TPE-ANC-JFK-ANC-TPE, TPE-SFO-TPE, and the most important thing is, I get to be in TPE for CNY, V day, and my B day.
 
As my CNY break comes to an end, most of it was spent at Barcode, Rm18, and Cashbox… oh, and David’s new pad…  dispatched called and told me my schedule was changed… I thought… damn… I knew it was too good to be true… Then… My JFK flight was cancelled, instead, I get the 19th home standby, and 22nd to LA back on the morning of 24th… this is the longest break I have ever had since I started flying… I must have done something good… hehehe
 
This little tiny can of beer, 135ml, was given to me from Darryel at 佃權. I passed by last night b4 they close, and he gave me a couple of free drinks, and this tiny can of beer. Cute.
