Chronicles of the Undateable: Nobody Knows What They Want

February 26th, 2015

Lesson 1 – Like the title says here, nobody knows what they want. Don’t debate with me on this. You may think you know what you want, but when it boils down to it, you really don’t. Trust me. I’m the exact same way. You could list out your perfect girl (or guy) then when you meet her (or him), you’ll see a bunch of other flaws. I bet you want examples, so here we go.

The Undateable: Intro

February 17th, 2015

I wouldn’t say that I’ve dated a lot of girls in my life, but there certainly has been a handful of them. A big handful. The fact that I’m still single only proves that I’m not much of a dating expert in any sense of the word. Yet for some reason, my friends come to me for dating advice all the time. And for the most part, I lead them in the right direction. Whether they choose to listen to me or not is 100{4b60d478b90bca18eeffbf8b1a93e65cc935dc2ffbf7c5beb7c0c95149b3d5c9} on them.

Clippers Court of Dreams

January 21st, 2015

Some days you just want to play basketball. Other days you just want to rent out Staples Center to play basketball on the LA Clippers court. Well, maybe if you’re Scott Bui and me with aspirations of doing everything big. And I mean B-I-G. On Christmas Day, we decided that it’d be a great idea to grab a few homies and ball up on the Clippers hardwood before they battled the ever so hated Warriors in the evening. Not the typical way people spend Christmas, but that’s the life you live when you’re a die-hard Clippers fan.

F The Police

December 9th, 2014

224364_1093129847248_782_n

It seems like there’s a story about the police every day in the news and not the good kind. If they’re not killing someone, they’re beating or harassing them. Don’t get me wrong, I have a few cop friends and I do respect what they do. However, my dislike for the rest of the cops goes way back to my teenage years. These bad memories are why I have such a problem with cops and everything we are reading about in the news lately. Not that I’m trying to compare my experience to people losing their lives, but I just wanted to share something that has been weighing on my mind for two decades and this felt like the right time to do so.

2014 Chu Year’s Resolutions

December 31st, 2013

582251_10152408892670451_2137899995_n

Tonight I’ll be popping bottles and saying goodbye to 2013 at Chu Casa with my #CAGs all the way into 2014 with high hopes of no hangovers in the morning. Amazing that these last few months have flown by so quickly. I know everyone says that, but I’m serious. They really did. After September, everything was pretty much a blur. Probably because I was drunk for most of November celebrating my 35th birthday with everyone. I don’t think I did a New Year’s Resolution list last year and if I did, I obviously didn’t keep up with it. So this year I’ll keep it simple. Don’t want to overexert myself.

Why Women Aren’t Really Women Anymore

August 14th, 2013

My friend Erin Luk posted up an article a few weeks back about why men really aren’t men anymore so that got me thinking. Not that the story wasn’t accurate, but the whole argument works both ways and women aren’t quiet women anymore in 2013. This isn’t a cheap shot at women (I love women) or anything sexist, so if you feel like you’ll be offended then maybe you’re better off not reading what I have to write. I don’t want to spend the next few days getting hate mail or tweets because you think I’m some chauvinist pig because I’m really not. Actually, this might be a bit entertaining for you so read anyway, just chill out on the hate spew afterwards. Read the rest of this entry »

Chubby Asian Champions

June 26th, 2013

1040504_10201020103657892_136069093_o-2

The Fall Season had been all over the place for Team #CAG (Chubby Asian Girls – for those wondering what #CAG stands for) in the Anaheim Adult Basketball League. We took some time off then finally decided to get the squad back together to make another run at the title. With the OG #CAGs (Peter Kim, Tony Ek, David Diep, Al Aguirre, Chris Taylor, & myself) in tact, we just needed to add a couple of more guys to complete the roster and play some competitive basketball. Big man Jason Dienhart held down the paint for us while Brian Dinh orchestrated the offense and Chris Serafino did his usual thing with chucking up long lefty three pointers and attacking the basket. The geoduck loving Steven Ng even suited up for us mid season to give guys a break when they needed it. Running with a 10 man roster wasn’t ideal, but with guys out for work or injuries, sometimes 10 didn’t even seem like enough.

Lose Them Shoes

February 12th, 2013

shoerack

Ever since we were kids, our non-Asian friends thought it was so weird that we had people take their shoes off inside the house. It’s part of the Asian culture, but to me it goes far and beyond that. Don’t get me wrong, I love shoes and life would be so much easier if I didn’t have to take them off all of the time so why do I/we do it? Think about everywhere you walk throughout the day and what type of nasty stuff gets stuck to the soles. Just going outside you have dirt, grass, sewer water, and dog/bird/cat shit. Indoors are probably just as gross like going into a public restroom where there’s piss and puke all over the floors. Then car people have to deal with grease, oil, and coolant. When I’m at the gym I see people spit on the ground and rub it in with their shoes. Do you really want to drag all that into your house across your nice carpet and floors?

What The Backflow?

February 11th, 2013

pipes2

I guess since the economy is still in the crapper, people will steal anything nowadays for some beer and taco money. When we got to the office last Monday morning, there was no water in the Chu’s Packaging Supplies building. At first we thought it was the city that shut it off for some reason or another, but when my sister called in they said that they didn’t. The dude that comes and checks our water valves all the time came by and told us somebody stole our water pipes and backflow valves to sell for scrap metal. Seriously? Come on now, how much can you get for some measly copper and brass pipes? It’s not like they were 20 feet long or anything.  Read the rest of this entry »

To Live and Die In LA: Fear LA

February 8th, 2013

2597_146594435450_7914772_n

Although the FOBs want to call me an ABC (American Born Chinese) like they think it’s supposed to be an insult or something, I was really born in Taiwan. It was a short stint there as my mom flew me right back to Nigeria, Africa where the Chus lived until I was four years old. After that, we ended up in Southern California and never moved from this great state that anchors down the west coast. Growing up, I didn’t travel much so I didn’t notice all the hate for Los Angeles. Not to mention that as kids, who had time to hate on anything other than teachers and running the mile in PE? The only time I remember when there was some type of hate going on between the West Coast and East Coast was when 2 Pac (Death Row) and Notorious B.I.G. (Bad Boy) were beefing back and forth.
