A recent episode of Oprah got me thinkin' about compatibility and here's what I came up with:

I like doing laundry. And folding. And ironing, too. But I despise putting it all away. Jon happens to ONLY like putting clothes away and dislikes doing everything else.
Dude, I hit the jackpot. Wait a sec, maybe he did! ;)

I like to wash dishes by hand. But I despise loading the dishwasher because trying to make everything fit stresses me out. Jon happens to ONLY like loading the dishwasher.

I prefer to vacuum. Jon prefers sprinkling the carpet powder before I vacuum.

I tend to leave my stuff all over the house - one of my biggest flaws. Jon can't stand seeing things out of place and cleans it all up.
Lucky me!

This post is for Jon, who had the best MLK day of his life. Seeing Magic Johnson in person made his year!

But he wouldn't be Jon if he didn't get his five minutes of fame or throw in the word "Taiwan" mid-sentence. =)
Upon seeing Jon at the mic wearing a difficult-to-find #32 Lakers jersey, Magic said, "Oh man, wow. Somebody get me a marker. I gotta sign that!"
HAPPY new year, indeed!

I am hooked on the new Xbox karaoke game! I LOVE singing terribly in the comfort of my own home. Jon challenged me to a sing-off of his favorite karaoke song - The Sign by Ace of Base and guess who sang this cheesy song a little less cheesier than the other person? =) In end, we both know who really loses in all this singing madness...our poor neighbors.

A few days in Taichung

We visited Jon's grandma in Taichung, about an hour south of Taipei on the bullet train. Please be warned that a few of the pictures may be unpleasant for viewing!

Pork meatball rolled in sticky rice. You could easily inhale 10 of these before you have time to realize there are 20 other equally yummy dishes on the table.

The biggest mug of bubble tea I've ever seen!

Intestines on the left and the rest of the animal on the right:

Pig liver:
The black chicken got beat up. BAD.

Pork blood soup:
