The simple things in life.

Over the past decade, I've been running back and forth from Asia to the US. It always hits me that there are some things that I really took for granted. Here some of the simple things in life that I missed about the good ol' US of A!  It's a bit long, but I promise it's entertaining!

Driving in your car with the sunroof open on a beautiful sunny afternoon.

Plenty of FREE parking. If you live in HK or Taiwan, you know what I am talking about.

YES. The Promise Land A.K.A. TARGET!

Shopping carts big enough where you can fit your entire family and then some.

Sliders! Although I think one of these is still the size of a Big Mac in Asia.

Cool things that you can buy for cheap. In HK , these would cost double the price. (can anyone tell me what they are?)

Drive Thru baby!! it's the CRAZY CHICKEN!

Good ol' American meat!

Good ol' American meat Part II

Good ol' American meat Part III served Mexican style!!!!  Definitely a runner up for the "last meal" contention.

Vietnamese noodles. YUMMMMMMMMMY! Another runner-up....I think DY SAO can appreciate this.

Yes boys. It's the grand slam! Need I say more?

I still don't know why they are not in Asia.

The best ice cream in the world.  The top is green apple sorbet and the bottom is strawberry yougurt!. It's called Fosselman's Ice Cream in Alhambra, Ca. Tell them Johnny sent ya! 

Perty!

Pertier!

X-Mas dinner at home.

The joy of seeing how happy your family is.

H.S. friends....love them all!

College friends...long time no see.

POKER AT IT'S BEST! Notice the Hulkamania table...one of a kind!

Clothes that make you look like a real man. Look...A&F make people now.

My favorite time of the day.

time to wind down....

so I can wake up to this. PERTIEST!!

Oh one more thing...kicking back with a bottle of Corona and having nothing to worry about...why?

Cuz it's the holidays! Leave your troubles behind and start fresh for 2009.

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I have lived it. It's nothing spectacular but it's the simple things in life that makes it perfect.

Sleeper shorts? They're like pajama pants, only shorter. I'm guessing these paticular ones are either Batman or Superman print.

Wow, makes me envy. You would appreciate it even more if you've ever lived in London. Seriously, if you've lived in London, moving to Asia or America will be equally as good. Not only is the weather miserable in the UK, but so is the whole damn place! And don't get me started on the OVER-priced everything!
