Music Playlist for Week of February 1st, '10
The great thing about HK is that it really never gets too cold. There might be a few days here and there where the temperature drops to around the upper 40s and 50s (7 - 13 degrees celsius). But generally, it’s pretty nice and warm out here. Having a rooftop at my apartment affords me the opportunity to throw some kick a- parties and BBQs. As you know I love BBQs. And what good would a BBQ...
Another Wickedly Awesome Dream featuring the...
My alarm went off at 7:30am this morning, but I kept pressing the snooze button so that I can finish this dream. That’s how awesome it was. Apparently, my family was the official guardian of the Maharaja’s diamond, which has been laid hidden for hundreds of years! We were a highly trained and skilled fighting bunch. One day, someone that we knew and were close to revealed that they...

As some of you may remember, I made a new year’s resolution where I will no longer pretend to hit on girls all of the time, and pretend to talk as if I like them by making references to us being together. This includes: Pretending to hit on girls Intentionally flirting with girls Making references of me hooking up with girls Making any sort of enuendos say anything along the lines of...
no one should go broke just for going to college. #stateoftheunion
I’m glad someone is finally believing that green energy is the next boom industry. been saying it for years! Go O!
listening to President Obama’s state of the union address. and I must say, I’m enjoy listening to him a lot more than Bush. Go O!

The problem with caffeine and other Google updates...
The big problem that I have with Google’s Caffeine update and their other updates to their search algorithm, is that they don’t have an option to display searches from a non-local search query. Here’s the scenario, I’m looking for some online tech updates in blogging, social media, etc. Basically, I’m looking for something new. But here’s the thing, Google has...
I suppose it’s about time to finally get some work done this week. it’s 4:30pm on friday.
House Warming Wishlist and Donate to Haiti Relief
I’m having a house warming party next saturday (2pm) at my apartment. Below is my wishlist for those who wish to purchase something. Though it’s totally not necessary. It’s just a list of things that I’ve been meaning to get but haven’t had time to get (i.e. toilet paper) or I just don’t know where to get it (i.e. wire brush for BBQ grill). Please leave a...
Postcards from Abroad
This post is for all of my friends abroad back in the states or somewhere else in the world that’s not Hong Kong (or China). If you would like, please email me your address and I will send to you a postcard from all of the way out here in HK. I was feeling a bit inspired by the Christmas and Birthday Cards that I received from my dear friends: Diane C, Katie W, Alice R(oommate) - @awong718,...

Your Weekend Update BMak- Jan 16, '10
Here is your weekend update: Friday: Attended a Protest with local bands at chater park, that got out a little out of hand the next day: Saturday: Green day concert with Stan and Rhonda. Paid for nose bleeds tickets, and snuck onto the ground floor. Moshed my way to the front. Stan crowd surfed it. Sweaty un-deodorized people everywhere. I still smell them…(sad…) Sunday: Bought...
My Wickedly Awesome Dream featuring Beer Pong and...
And it goes a little something like this: I got back to my house (in Long Island) where all of my friends were hanging out. The house looked a little different, but it was definitely my house. Aileen and Joanna had just finished playing beer pong where Joanna won. I yelped that I wanted to play, and Aileen (in her Aileen voice…) screamed, “OK! BRIAN PLAYS NEXT…” So...

But to her it sounds like home...
“…And all the colors look like fireworks, In skies she knew before And nights can’t hide the day Then the tears roll down her face And the lights so high, that’s she’s dying to say ‘Just take me away’ But the fog just sits like blankets And it’s drowning out the glow You can hear voices loud and singing out, A song nobody knows But to her it...
still alive but i’m barely breathing…SO…T-I-R-E-D!!!
Hong Kong is a Hang Out Paradise
and pretty much that’s it. The other day, Vicki, Kim, and I were having lunch at one of my fav restaurants in NY - Bar Pitti. Vicki was giving Kim some heat about Kim not having any interest in visiting Hong Kong. Vicki said, “OMG Kim…you HAVE to go! You won’t know unless you go.” This got me thinking about about why people would want to come to Hong Kong. Hong Kong...
Music Playlist for Week of January 11th, '10
Back from my 10-day holiday trip home in New York (City, Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island included), I come back bringing a fresh set of tunes for my first playlist of 2010. Happy New Year, everyone! It was a nice trip filled with family, friends, singing (karaoke), and a very unexpected and outright unnecessary short trip to a somewhat fervent past…revelations ensue - more on that and my...

Boys and Girls - Friends, Lovers, or Bust
Relations between close boys and girls friends is kind of a difficult and tricky thing. Christina said years ago that boys and girls can’t be great friends without one liking the other at some point in time. And while I disagreed with her at the time and still do, I do believe that there will be some level of attraction between the two. And so it is the responsibility of both people to tread...

And this is why: Every morning, this fresh, sweet, warm, chewy, little motherf-er of a Pineapple Bun stares at me in the face every time I walk past the Taipan Chinese bakery in my building right before I hit the escalators. It sits there, looking at me, taunting me saying “EAT ME! EAT ME! EAT MY BUTTERY SWEET CRUST!…Brian…I love you…” And now I’m fat… ...

Ask me anything
I just put up a new Q&A section in my blog. Basically, it’s a chance for you to ask me anything. I’ll try my best to answer. Doubt anyone will ask. But I figured that I would put it up because last time I was home people kept asking me questions about HK and my life out here. Anyway, if you feel like it, ask me a question. =) http://bmak.tumblr.com/ask
