....sigh....My 2 days vacation is about to end soon, why!?!? Anyhow, yesterday was somewhat of a slow day. I dropped off my mom at the bank and I went off to McDonalds for breakfast. It was kind of an interesting sight at the local McDonalds because all of the customers that were dining-in were older folks, in their late 70's and 80's. I overheard some of their interesting conversations, they were a group of older European/Italian folks who talked about WWII and how their parents use to beat on them when they were young. In addition, they got into a heated discussion about religion and how 2011 will be the end of the world(according to the bible). It's not that I was all up in their business/ease dropping but I was just curious of how the older generations has a completely different view than our current generation. I guess these very two different views are whats keeping our society divided, both politically and socially. Later that night, I went out for dinner with some of my old economics classmate. Only half a year had gone by and already many things have changed. One of my friend is going to move to another state after graduation, while another is having plans for marriage very soon. It seems like when people hit the age of 20, there seems to be more and more pressure by society and their parents; such as a stable career, marriage, kids, and etc. Anyhow, it is true what people use to say, "we should enjoy our youth while we can". I guess now, in our 20's, we should take advantage of the phrase, "live life to the fullest".

As for today, Veterans Day, I hung out with my parents. So we first headed over to a barbershop, which my dad recommended and is located at the hidden allies of Chinatown. I was first skeptical of the place because my bro's were saying that it was located at a ghetto ally and the barber was very old school(use blade). It was no joke when they said that place is located at a ghetto ally, I had to walk through a porno stand, through some gates, down some stairs, and pass the dimly lit neon barber sign"Wai's Barber Shop"(Jackson st., between Stockton and Grant). Once I stepped in, I felt like I stepped back in time, felt like the 70's. The folks there had 70's style hair style along with the whole shop set up. Yet, I must say that the barber was pretty damn good. He did pull out his signature blade, only to give me a fly ass shave; shaved my face and uni brow. Not only was I satisfied with the service and price($5) but he was a really down to earth dude aka Mr. Yee. Afterward, my parents and I went to yum-cha. Following breakfast, we visited my uncle's new apartment. Later that night, our family had a small hotpot dinner....It was "muy deliciouso"
