Weekend Update 5/23/08 - 5/26/08

(In an effort to increase the regular content on this blog and in order to figure out just what I do with my life, I've decided to start keeping records of my activities on the weekends. This is sure to be more boring than a Physics/English lecture for the three of you reading this blog, so feel free to skip this entry. These are mainly for me.)


More time with my AJAX book. I wrote a simple page that grabs data from a MySQL database and populates it to a field upon the user clicking. I found a weird error with this on FireFox. It works fine on IE and Opera. I spent the rest of the night trying to debug this. I'm still working on it.

I had dinner at Shinsengumi Ramen. This is a place that I always enjoy going to.

Once again, I managed to get in some The World Ends With You before going to bed. This game is really suited for playing a little bit each day. The designers were quite clever in how they implemented various systems to make the user want to play the game daily. Also, the music has totally grown on me and now I dig it.


Another weekend at Azusa Greens Country Club. The course was not that crowded because it rained early in the morning and people were scared off. Cool beans. I shot a 109 which is ok; my putting and driving was good, but I simply lost too many balls to bad drives. The front 9 was 51 whereas the back was 58. I played from the blue tees this time though.

I spent the evening at the driving range over Monterey Park Golf Course. I hadn't been to this place in a while. I've really been trying to improve my iron shots and I am beginning to some progress. My main issue is being able to hit a good iron shot after a good drive. If I can master this I can totally get on the green in two for courses like Azusa.

I had dinner at Ohana Hawaiian BBQ, the mochiko chicken was way too salty. I really just wanted some Spam musubi. Next time I will just stick to that...or go to Shakas which while mediocre is still better than this place.

Sunday The day started with a golf lesson at Golftec. Afterwards, I played a game at Monterey Park. I shot a 38, which is good for me. I've gotten a lot better since I last played this course.

I watched a few more episodes of Yama Onna Kabe Onna. Almost near the end and I have to laugh at some of the plot twists. This show is a weird mix of Japanese style humor and psuedo-legitimate drama.


I spent Memorial Day attending a BBQ and playing board games. There was some Rock Band in there as well. I had a good time and probably ate too much. I'm not sure how this honors our fallen soldiers but I suppose the BBQ is American.
