When Polo and I were 15, we’d hang out at a place called The Block in Orange. We would go there weekly to watch movies, hollar at girls, fight, hollar at girls, shop, and hollar at girls. The Block was the place to be at, because all the kids in the area would all go there to meet up. These days I would go to the block to hit up Dave and Busters, see a movie, and shopping at Balance Lifestyles. Balance is owned by Joseph, who is doing a great job of the brands he’s picking for his shop. If you do visit the Block, stop by Balance. It’s right next to Dave and Busters.

Today I went on somewhat of an adventure, heading to some local spots to do some tagging. First I ventured off to a very great pizza spot here
called Fortel’s Pizza Den.

Waiting on the pizza got kind of boring. Time to sticker bomb.

After the Pizza was destroyed I decided to head to a local Target to mosey

It’s about that time a year again when the weather changes in California from sunny to cold in a matter of days. The weather changes causes a lot of people to get a little under the weather. I know most of us usually take an airborne, theraflu or even some night quil and call it a day, but I grew up in a Vietnamese house hold where my parents practice all sorts of weird shit to get rid of these symptoms of the cold/fever. Since god knows how long, Asians have been practicing the use of herbal medicine to battle these symptoms and use it as a cure. Andy has been sick for the last few days and rather then going the normal method of say a chicken noodle soup and some fever medicine he decided to get in touch with his culture in the far east.

This might have help prevent the illness, but looks like Andy had to go to drastic matters to cure himself.

f8Pictured above is Andy in what us Asians like to call a home made steam room. Using a crockpot with all sorts of herbal medicine boiling, Andy is covering himself with what looks like an Ikea Full size comforter to help heal his fever and cleanse his body of all those nasty toxins. I would have went with the Tigerbaum and a spoon to rub out the fever but  get better soon Andy. We miss you here.
