this is pretty much the anthem of the baby world here in taiwan
we've been playing it every night for the baby and wifey says everytime we do, the baby moves around quite a bit
baby or not, i think this is a pretty catchy and mellow song to listen to

with wifey at almost 23 weeks now, the baby's movements have been getting stronger and she can feel them more and more
altho' the movements are still not very visible on the outside, i've seen the baby poke out a couple times
last night, as i had my face against wifey's belly and having my nightly talks with baby, i said a joke and it gave me a punch/kick to the face!
don't know if that was because the baby thought it was a funny one or a bad joke...
i don't care
that was cool!
first time i've been so happy to get hit right in the face

well, what do you know?
this pregnancy is turning out to be pretty suspenseful
in our past few check-ups, the doc said the baby looks like it's a boy
well, yesterday we went in for our week 20 (5 months) check-up and the doc said it's a girl
this time he sounded pretty certain too
we are happy either way but that was somewhat of a shocker since we've been told it's a boy all this time
we've even been calling the baby "son" when we talk the him/her
from now on, we're just gonna call the baby "baby" when we talk to him/her
we are even more anxious than before now
at 20 weeks, the gender should be pretty certain now
80 ~ 90 %
but still, we can not wait until the next check-up and ultrasound
here's the latest ultrasound from yesterday...
there's really no sure thing when it comes to a baby's gender
the only way to know for sure is when the baby is born
it sure is fun to play the guessing game tho'
but at the same, if you know the gender, it's so much easier to shop for things
regardless, i am still not buying anything pink

with the 6th pick in this year's nba draft, the milwaukee bucks picked yi jianlian of china
unfortunately, yi doesn't wanna play for the bucks
his agent and the chinese officials are asking the bucks to trade him
to that i say... fuck him, fuck his agents and fuck the chinese officials
i'm sure it's most likely not his saying nor his fault all this is happening
he's probably just being manipulated like a puppet by the chinese officials and government
i'm sure he's pretty thrilled to be in the nba and he should be
the odds of making it are one in a few thousand
on top of that, he's a first round pick so his multi-million dollar (us$) contract is guaranteed
he probably won't enjoy much of it tho' as the chinese government will take most that $
i don't care if you are michael jordan and were picked by a team located in north pole
you honor that and just play

just got back from the motherland a couple days ago
2 nights, 3 days
a couple meetings here
visit some suppliers there
nothing special, just another short business trip
left my camera in the hotel for most of the trip, so didn't get a chance to take any photos
here's a photo looking out the window of my hotel room on the 11th floor...

my good friend and colleague rich from illinois is in town again
a couple days ago, we went to visit a supplier (a tool shop) for the project we are working on
the owner of that shop is mr. hsieh but we call him beetlejuice (or bj for short)
the reason behind that is because, not only does he actually kinda looks like beetlejuice, he just loves chewing that betelnut
he took us out to lunch and his buddy joined us
what do you know?
another betelnut loving guy
since this guy is a little older than bj, we've affectionately named him beetlejuice senior
so, here you go
i proudly present to you...
beetlejuice (sitting on the right, with glasses) and beetlejuice senior (sitting on the left with arms crossed)
"Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice!"
