Afghan goo-goo just aint gettin it done these days. I need to chill but the heat got me buggin... Some people go to Church, but I go to Shopsin's... Recently, I've just had a lot of difficulty not responding to people who leave anonymous comments whether its on my blog, on yelp, etc. I don't get it. If you're going to say something, put your name on it. I do!
Kenny gave me some good advice that went something like this: "Go for the pussy, stop messin with the tits." LOL. He's been around a lot longer than me and he always has good advice. I do feel like I got drawn into a lot of sideshow shit like being blocked by an choi, haters on yelp, chairman bao, etc. And, at least for the short term, I'm going to do my best to ignore this shit and focus on my food. For anyone else looking to open a restaurant, I would say just be ready for negative things that you yourself didn't even seek out. The shit just finds you, but its cool. I aint mad. I'm gonna chill out and just have fun cooking. The recipes for xiao ye are all done, gonna cook for my homies before game 1 of the finals tomorrow so I'll have some photos of that.
I think a lot of people have the wrong perception about us. We're all just kids and a lot of the times, we are immature. I wake up, play ball, eat and then head in to check the restaurant. After that, who knows what happens. We don't know how to handle everything that's been going on so we just say what we think and it hasn't always been good for us. I'm 28, Emery's 25, Evan's 22, there isn't a class or book or person who can tell you how to do this nor would we want that. We like to figure this out ourselves, but I think we forget that everything on the internet is there for people to see. We're really just being ourselves writing funny menus, doing goofy promotions, but people see it as some premeditated ploy. I wish people would get to know us and see that we're really just a random family. I mean, I'm an accident baby. The Huangs don't really plan shit. So... for the time being, i'm going to chill and if yall want to help, just remind me of this post haha.
That said... we're goin back to cali
Props to Raf aka The Prince of BK for planning this trip to Cali..... For the record, its not a throwdown. I'm just gonna cook. If you like pork, come see me.
