Spider-Man: No Way Home

Long story short without any spoiler – Walked into the theater without single word of knowledge but absolutely a great movie and must see.

Maybe one personal factor – watching Spiderman series had always been a stone in my stomach for years (because of ….) but now I am totally free from that.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Ezellโ€™s Famous Chicken – Has been a while…

Another pandemic WFH day, another to-go lunch. ๐Ÿ™‚ This fried chicken has been a while and now I started to wonder what I haven’t tried so far at home ๐Ÿ™‚

Well actually this is another left-over finishing lunch. ๐Ÿ˜‰ helping me to enjoy the ‘cleaning’ feeling.

Ezell’s has been a good local southern style fried chicken for years – however, thanks to the ‘level up’ of fried chicken from Chick-Fil-A driven Chicken Burger wars across franchises and wave of Korean Fried Chicken in recent years, the tastiness of this chicken seems to diminishing ๐Ÿ™‚

I-90 West-end people driving on I-10 West-end.. Can’t believe last time I was around here was like 21 years & 3 months ago!!! –

Funny story but I do believe I remember the exact days I was here; because I was doing overbooking stand-by at LA (had to call airline’s reservation desk everyday mornings and nights) to get the seat confirmation.. [and I have been told that I was yelled a lot from office… ๐Ÿ™‚ but it was travel agency’s fault – and not mine, and I even saved the company’s money by staying at my friend’s place…]

Forza Horizon 5

Although I miss lots of things from my old workplace, and one of the most – so far – is the fact I am far away from launch of great games in service. I have been extremely close in monitoring tons of game launches at old place and actually have watched myself adjusting the ‘tie’ both intentionally or unintentionally after I departed.

However, missing the opportunity to closely monitor the launch of Forza Horizon 5 is one of the biggest thing among those – Forza Horizon series never disappoints & the beautiful & fun/casual driving experience is always fun. As I am not close any more, didn’t jump into this game immediately at launch but made an effort to jump in at this weekend. This reminds me one of the big shift of mind I made when deciding this transition – ‘Gaming is truly personal interest for a while from now’ ๐Ÿ™‚

Week 1 being Big Red

I personally have never been associated any red in my life.. ๐Ÿ™‚ Grown up from the country hates red, and went to both college and MBA where color was blue… and even I worked for company called themselves as Big Blue… ๐Ÿ™‚ Maybe the closest one might be magenta.. ๐Ÿ™‚

Anyhow wishing my new red life!! ๐Ÿ˜€
