  • project wrote this interesting postmortem about how they made that happen It s the end of the week Jun 18 2010 Post a comment Funny By Vu Nguyen Here is something to set your mood for the weekend Via Evann Not impressed by the acclaimed Cirque Du Soleil in Seattle Jun 18 2010 Post a comment Personal By Vu Nguyen Please excuse my ignorance because I have never heard of this group before we saw their tent on our way home with my better half Rali She later did some research online and bought two tickets for the premier show I almost had a heart attack after she told me how much it cost to place us close to the front stage My savings for an ipad is gone I have been chipping in every week in hope to save enough money to buy an iPad before Christmas and now it is all gone Just like that Gone Ok maybe I am dramatizing a little bit here Rali has not been to a circus since she was a little kid and I have only been to a few in the US We came through the main gate to a covered area with a few shops for souvenirs and snacks and was told to go to door number 4 of the main tent to find our seats The main tent is a half circle with a relatively small stage in the middle I was not really impressed by the setting until the music came on Darn it the surround sound system was good The lights were good too There are a few interesting parts of the show like beautiful gymnastics and some extreme in air actions but the big part of the show is a bit slow in my opinion Rali loves it but I think I have seen better If you happen to be around the Seattle area you should definitely give it a shot It is almost worth the money You can also check their website to see where they are heading next Here is a bit about the show from the site From a group of 20 street performers at its beginnings in 1984 Cirque du Soleil is now a major Quebec based organization providing high quality artistic entertainment The company has more than 4 000 employees from over 40 different countries including 1 000 artists Cirque du Soleil has brought wonder and delight to almost 90 million spectators in over 200 cities on five continents In 2009 Cirque du Soleil will present 20 shows simultaneously throughout the world The company has received such prestigious awards as the Emmy Drama Desk Bambi ACE GÃ meaux FÃ lix and Rose dâ Or de Montreux Cirque du Soleil International Headquarters are in Montreal Canada Cirque du Soleilâ s mission is to invoke the imagination provoke the senses and evoke the emotions of people around the world iPhone vs Android user s income Jun 17 2010 Post a comment Apple By

  • even notice but the used next to an input field usually signifies that the field is required I think it is a pretty widely used standard Too bad my host hasn t heard about it Paper cut rolls Jun 10 2010 One comment Arts By Vu Nguyen If only I knew how beautiful toilet paper rolls can be I would have saved all of them Continue reading How to check if the meat is ready Jun 9 2010 Post a comment Miscellaneous By Vu Nguyen I am definitely not a good cook I survived almost five years of college with mostly fried eggs cold sandwiches and fast food But about a year ago with the encouragement from Rali my girlfriend I started cooking mostly meat dishes and only on special occasion read when I want to eat steak Since Rali doesn t eat red meat I end up cooking mainly for myself Cooking steak isn t easy especially if you are as picky as I am when it comes to how you cook it I found this useful guide last week and tried it during the weekend The medium turns out pretty close to what I would have expected Of course all of that conclusion is based on one try my left hand I already know about how long it takes to cook to medium and so on But the guide is neat anyway Open the palm of your hand Relax the hand Take the index finger of your other hand and push on the fleshy area between the thumb and the base of the palm Make sure your hand is relaxed This is what raw meat feels like Check this out the next time you have a raw steak to cook Now gently press the tip of your pinky
