Draggle’s Asian Journey Part I — Hong Kong

I promised I’d write a post about my trip this summer. That was two months ago, but better late than never. Not anime, but I went to Japan, so I figured people might be interested.

The reason I went on this trip in the first place is because I had to present at a robotics conference in Hong Kong. I had just graduated and was taking a vacation for the summer, so I figured, since I was already over there, why not see Asia?

Anyway, I went to the conference, saw a bunch of friends from all over the world, gave my presentation. My presentation kind of sucked because I was distracted by these two guys who came in, sat right in front of me, and proceeded to talk over me for the first five minutes of the presentation. Threw me off. Oh well.

Food

Then I skipped most of the rest of the conference to see Hong Kong! I had dim sum everyday, obviously. I love dim sum.

The first day, we went to this 5-star Michelin rated restaurant. The cheapest 5-star Michelin rated restaurant in the world, I believe. The barbecue pork buns (shown above) were to die for. Seriously, hands down some of the best food I’ve ever eaten. Continue reading

What Should I Blog Next? Summer 2014

I’m already covering Sword Art Online and Mahouka, which both air on Saturday. I’m pretty sure I’m going to pick up Aldnoah Zero, which also airs on Saturday. I’ll also pick one or two more. I’m leaning towards Tokyo Ghoul and / or Zankyou no Terror. Thoughts? Don’t pick your favorite shows, pick something you’d like to see me write about.

I’m also planning to continue Week in Anime posts anything else I want to talk about this season. A few other things I’m planning to do: 1) write some posts about my trip to Asia and Japan, 2) season end and start posts, 3) write up a post about the manga I’m currently reading. If I forget / continue to be a lazy bum, please pester me.

What should I blog next? Pick up to three.

Hanzawa Naoki and How You Should Watch It Even Though It’s an Asian Drama and Asian Dramas Suck

hanzawa_naoki_2

Normally I don’t watch dramas. All the ones I’d seen parts of before were crap. But the other week a friend of mine suggested I give this show called “Hanzawa Naoki” a try. It was only ten episodes, so I figured why not. In the worst case, I could later elucidate her on why she has shit taste.

Anyway, the lesson is, if all your friends jump off a bridge, you’d better hurry up and join them. Hanzawa Naoki is AMAZING. Continue reading
