Comedy Central just happened

Well. I hit a milestone in my life and comedy career. I was one of the comedians hand-picked by Comedy Central Asia to represent the region in their first ever Asia-production called Stand Up Asia. It was a blast, I got to meet my comedy family from around Asia and basically represent good ol' Hong Kong.

I've finally had a chance to sit down and "rest" after a week-long of shows and gigs and work and a lot of lack of sleep. So I'm writing this half-zombie half-human.

Well the cool thing is, this coming week my schedule isn't packed but I have a lot to get done, so I'm looking forward to getting enough sleep (me lack of sleep is the 2nd biggest killer to my productivity).

Anyway, it's going to be a crazy next 10 days but once I get through it, I'm going to get to enjoy a whole new point in my life and then a few weeks later I get to board a cruise ship for gigs and well, buffet's the ocean and ...buffets again.

Did I tell you that I'm literally sore everywhere because I worked out 2 days in a row with absolutely no foam rolling or stretching after and oh my god, I can feel it. I can feel it bad.

Hopefully tonight's sleep will fix things up :)

Well rather than me randomly rambling, going to end this entry here and get on with my stuff before I call it an early night and crash head first into my pillow.

Happy 10 days ahead and looking forward to what the 2nd half of this year has in store for me!

2016 part 2

Ooooooohhh yeah!! We're in the 2nd half of 2016!! Man I can't believe the year has just zoomed by. So much has happened in just the last week, and so much has progressed in the last 6 months.
The cool thing is, I'm still insanely in love with the DOOM OST, though after hearing it over and over again for so long, there are a few tracks that stand out, namely the BFG Division track, that was fantastic.

So in the last few days, I've seen myself visiting multiple schools daily, giving talks and different sharings and let me just say, man I am blown away by the range of schools there are. The different types of audiences and what they find funny. Like there have been mornings where I've been surprised by the students' interested in certain topics, and others where I feel like I'm banging my head against a wall trying to get one of my bitgs to hit and get a giggle. All in the life of a comedian. But man am I blessed.

I even got to go to Sapporro in Japan for an event and ate the absolute best Ramen I've had in my life at, go figure, their airport (they have a ramen street there! INSANE!)

The cool thing is, this whole week has been a very progressive week. I mean as much as I was literally borderline dying of lack of sleep, but it wasn't like my life was on hold, things still progressed. Speacking of progress, BREXIT. Oh man, has the pound sterling tumbled hard. I am lost if I should buy some GBP or just buy stuff on line using GBP and enjoy the crazy conversion rates...

Either way, probably wait and see, things are so mad there I don't feel that risky anyway.
By the way, I'm writing this on my lovely plane ride back to Hong Kong from Japan, man it's so refreshing taking a plane with movies on board, ahah I'm so used to budget airlines, my iPad is filled with stuff to watch, it's literally something I do automatically whenever I get on a plane. Anyway, instead of probably developing some weird joint defect from trying to type in my tiny little space (it's Hong Kong airlines, keyword being Hong Kong and thus space is a luxury), going to treat myself to a movie. Speaking of which, I treated myself to 3 softie ice creams in a span of 2 days and that is more than I've had in the last 2 years!

OK time to enjoy....ZOOTOPIA!
