Scooter Crash!

Well I was driving to work the other day and ended up crashing my scooter. I was trying to get through an intersection as the light was turning red. One guy was getting a head start on the green light so we were both in the intersection when we shouldn't be. I swerved sharply to avoid hitting him and just wiped out crashing onto the ground. I'm not that clear on what happened but I didn't hit anyone, I landed on my shoulder and ripped a hole in my coat.

My helmet hit the ground but so did the side of my face on my cheek bone and brow. I was bleeding a lot it seemed but overall was okay. I picked up my scooter and kept driving. As I drove my vision started going white until I couldn't see anything. I guess it was the shock and adrenaline. I pulled over and just sat there resting for a while.

I continued to work where my co-worker gave me some first aid and I rested for a while before going home. Here are some photos of my face as its progressed. I'll add some pics of the damage to my scooter later.

Taiwan Dreamin' : Teaching English

For this one I didn't call it episode 2 and just decided to call it "Teaching English." This whole episode focuses on teaching, what you need to teach legally and all that. I brush over a lot of things quickly so it's not really to be used as a guide but just to give an idea of how it works.

Hawaii 51

Last night I went to eat at a restaurant called Hawaii 51. The food there was really good, tasted a lot like Chilis or Fridays, same kind of selection. When I was ALMOST done with my food I bit into my ceaser chicken wrap and bit down on something hard. It wasn't hard like a bone, I mean it was HARD. I put my fingers in my mouth and pulled out a push pin. Yes, a little yellow push pin that you'd find in a cork board.

Well it didn't stab me or anything so I didn't complain to much. Just showed the waiter. The manager came and said that particular order would be free, although he didn't offer to make Ash's food free as well. Later on he brought us a chocolate cake and ice cream dessert thing.

The problem now is that I really liked the taste of the food there, and the price was a lot lower than the other places. Then again it also had a lot more push pin, haha!

Sometimes I think it's important to look past these things, it was a freak mistake. Probably one of their decorations fell down and the put pin landed in one of the pots. Weird that even the cook didnt notice it while wrapping up the chicken though...

Well maybe I will go there again, maybe not... Leave me a comment, what do you think?
