damion invited us to his little gathering today at his new apartment @ emerybay. that place is nice! parking structure is awesome. comes with swimming pool, jacuzzi, and even a balcony. janey, cari, liam, and drsarkis were also there. it's been a really long time since i've seen drsarkis and damion it was great seeing them again! janey brought over some korean bbq and chicken-katsu and damion bbqed some turkey burgers. i've gotta say both were delicious. yummy. drsarkis and janey had to leave early so liam, cari, damion, and i were the only ppl left around to chill and chat.
while watching the food network. they said ketchup originated from china. i was actually shocked @ this cause i always thought ketchup sounded very cantonese, but just believed that it was a coincidence. it was originally named catsup, but as language evolved, it began to sound more like ketchup (hence the reason why heinz sells both ketchup and catsup). catsup actually comes from 2 cantonese words: ke jup (which literally means tomato sauce). here's the kanji for it:
we got bored of watching the food network after awhile, so decided to go get a board game. decided on taboo, but unfortunately the borders we went to didnt carry taboo. at the same time, the cal vs usc game was going on. we decided to sit down and watch it with the rest of the crowd there. it was OT and usc had just fumbled the ball. it was followed by a block on the field goal attempt by cal. i thought this craziness may have came to an end, then cal manages to score a touch down. believe we've won the game, everyone was shocked to see usc coming back and also making a touch down. we entered the 3rd overtime and usc misses an easy 29yd field goal attempt while cal's kicker finally makes sinks the 39yd field goal in and ... CAL WINS!!! everyone around us was screaming for joy. very exciting game i must say. here's espn's article: Cal fans storm field after win.
