New Board

I went to the Sunway Pyramid today and bought a new complete. A complete here costs exactly the same as it does in Canada. After I bought it I took a taxi directly to Shah Alam Skatepark. Honestly, it's the best park I've ever seen. I've never been great at skating parks, but I had fun.

I skated in the mini pool the whole time. If I managed to do two tricks in a row, I'd stop because I was out of breath. It was a very hot day and I was sweating a heck of a lot. On my way home I smelled like my old hockey bag.

Hammers to Date = 0
Slams to Date = 0

I'm going skating this weekend. Check this out. I always wondered why there were so many skate shops near my house. Don't worry mom, I won't try anything dangerous.

This place looks awesome! I'll post some raw hammer pics on Monday.

Chairman Hawks



After you've lived in a foreign country for so long, it may be hard to go back home. This photo speaks for itself. It seems that his reeducation has been a success. Just look at that thousand-yard stare.

F1 Pics

I almost missed the start of the race because I was waiting in line to buy some drinks.

Possibly the winner. The only way I could tell the two Mercedes drivers apart was by their helmets and positions in the race. I forget now.

It would have been cool if I knew who these guys were.


Go Honda!

Greatest Easter Ever!

My buddy Aziz called me up on Saturday night. He had an extra ticket for the Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix. The only condition was that I had to go to La Vita that night.

Later that night:

Aziz: I have good news and bad news. Which do you want first?
Dave: Bad news.
Aziz: You have to sit alone at the Grand Prix.
Dave: That's not so bad. What's the good news?
Aziz: Your ticket is worth RM 1,700 ($565 CDN). The rest of us will be sitting in the RM 500 ($166 CDN) seats.
Dave: OMG!
Aziz: Your seat actually comes with three free meals.
Dave: High five!

I am officially a Formula One fan now. The seats were awesome. I was four rows back and pretty close to the start/finish line. I have lots of pictures and a video of the start of the race. I just forgot to upload them.

I demand a rematch against the following people:

- Joshua

- Ben
- Vic

I'm sorry, but I will no longer be available to play the following people:
