CTIA 2010 Day 2 Recap

Today was another interesting day at CTIA. The morning started off pretty late. I was still recovering from last night. :) So my first even was the mobile health seminar. This was pretty slow but they had some interesting ideas and concepts. I met my friend Xavier for lunch we went to the LV Hilton’s Buffet. I have to say, their buffet have really gone down hill. It was a pretty awful lunch buffet. After lunch, I discovered many interesting exhibits as well as few interesting spots inside LV Hilton. Just check out the pictures below.

The first picture was taken right after lunch in the men’s restroom in Las Vegas Hilton.  It’s pretty fun trying to use the restroom and looking up seeing those pictures.

Tomorrow, I am returning home to Seattle. Thanks CTIA for a wonderful show!!!

CTIA Day 1 Recap

Well, it is day 2 of CTIA in Las Vegas, let me recap my experiences from yesterday. The day started with meeting up with Xavier for breakfast.  We had a simple breakfast at MacD’s, but I have to say this McDonald has the look and feel of a coffee shop.  It was really interesting.  We then walked to the convention center to get my ID and head toward the Keynote.

As we were headed toward the keynote, we ran into couple of Google Androids.

CTIA DAY 1: Good morning

Good Morning, Today is CTIA day one.  It is pretty exciting.  I am staying at a pretty nice hotel in Vegas.  Even though it doesn’t have a casino in the hotel, which is a bit strange for vegas, but it is a suite, with a living room kitchen and even a hot tub.  All that room for myself.  So  getting ready now, then breakfast and then head over to the keynote speaker presentation.

Another Short Weekend

Weekends just seems shorter and shorter!!! So what happened this weekend. Let’s think back…

Friday night I went to see Alice in Wonderland in 3D IMAX.  Oh it was so cool, the movie was not so bad either. But I have to say the $31 dollar ticket price for 2 was a bit expensive.  All I have to say is I can’t wait until Tron Legacy!!!

Saturday was an all day house hunting, I saw so many houses and townhomes, I even saw couple of town houses on Eastlake, but ultimately, I decided that, beside the view, there is really no benefit for me to be in eastlake.  Mapleleaf is still the best area for me. I also decided to make an offer on a house near N 100th Street.

Sunday was another house hunting day.  I went to take a look at the house across the street from me.  They lowered the price by 20k.  Tempting, but they are right next to a cell tower, which get my folks worried.  I also looked at couple other houses, finally, I went back to the house I was going to make an offer on to take a look.  The second tour was good and the house was very acceptable, I told the realtor that I am ready for an offer,  he called to check on the status, and some one have already beat me to it with a full offer.  Oh well… the search continues.

There are good houses around, but at the price range that I am looking for, and with the 8k from the government, they go pretty quick.

So tonight I will be heading over to Las Vegas for CTIA 2010.  More to come about that tomorrow. ;)

Wow, it’s Friday already?

This week just flew right by.  I can’t believe it is Friday already.  I still have so much stuff to do.  This week is pretty interesting.  I looked at many houses.  Some are very tempting because of the prices, some are very tempting because of the location, but I just have to found that house that I must have yet.  I wonder is it because I am valuing price too much? We will see … I will need to make a decision soon.  So… next week will be a super exciting week.  I will be in Las Vegas for first part of the week for CTIA.  For those of you that don’t know what CTIA is, it is the biggest Cellular Conference in the world.  Hopefully I will get a chance to learn some new things and maybe check out some new technology. The second part of next week, I may be going to NYC for the first time for a kick off meeting on Friday.  This should be pretty interesting.  So I will keep everyone updated.

Well, Happy Friday… oh and enjoy the beautiful weather!!!

Tennis? anyone?

In Las Vegas … but no gambling

Well…. This week I am in Las Vegas for IWCE. It’s a good conference for the field I am in. However, this time out… it is not as fun as the previous years? Why? well… because I actually have to work. I still have lots of conference calls, I am staying at a place next to the convention center, the Embassy Suites. It is pretty cool place, however, no casino and it is not on the strip.

So.. I guess for fun… you just have to comeback for a for fun trip only :)

I just got back from the Penn and Teller show. It was pretty good, even though I have seen some of the act from the old 1994’s The Unpleasant world of Penn and Teller, but it is still good to see it live. One thing that I was kind of stupid about was I lift my camera at home. Penn and Teller actually let fans take pictures with them after the show. However, tonight is one of the only time that I did not have my camera with me. Actually the entire trip I did not take any pictures. Why… well… it just reminded me too much of my last time here in Las Vegas and I feel sad.

Anyway… I did get Penn’s autograph :D. The act was pretty cool….
So tomorrow.. I am going back to Ephrata. I don’t know if I will be going back to seattle this weekend or not. I been out so much… I think I am just going to chill at home this Memorial day weekend. I just don’t know yet. Sigh … I don’t want to go home. I need to just find a road job I guess. ha ha ha … just kidding…

Once again, I am sitting in the Airport typing away at my blog. Oh before I forget, Happy Mothers day!!! Anyway… this time I am in the Birmingham Airport. Originally, I was going to fly from here to Houston and from Houston to Seattle, but that flight to Houston got cancelled so I am flying to Cincinnati, OH instead and fly from there to Seattle. I get delayed about 1 hour. So that’s ok. And tomorrow starts an interesting week. Tomorrow morning I head from Seattle to Las Vegas and I spend 3 days in Las Vegas for the International Wireless Communications Expo. Now that should be fun. One of these nights, I think I want to go see Penn and Teller. :D

Anyway… these couple of days in Auburn has been fun. Of course it always been fun. I got a chance to see alot of my friends. I got to see my buddy Trung and Julie and their 3 kids and one to come. They have such a blessed family. I also got to see my buddy Sergeon and Shi with their baby girl Misha. It was Misha’s birthday on Saturday. Misha is one year old now… wow… I can’t believe how fast time passes. I also saw my friend Eric Au and his wife and his kid. One special surprise was I got a chance to see Lan Shang Bing… he is on his Honeymoon and decided to take his wife to Auburn for a visit. Amazing I can’t believe that he has been away for almost 6 years. This past weekend, I also got to check out the remodeled house. My father did a wonderful job remodelling the old house. It looked sooo good. If I were in Auburn, I would love to live there. It is only $145,000. Any offers??

Of course family… I got to spend a short amount of time with my family. My sister came home yesterday and we had a big party. Partys at my family’s house is always the best!!!
I do also miss my friends in the NW. sometimes I wish I can have all my friends here in Alabama for a big party :D

But it is time to go home… and tomorrow I am flying to Vegas and get ready to take notes and lots of work on the road. But it should still be fine.

Oh… and one more thing… I got an A for my Cryto class!!! oh my gosh!! an A… but that is another story for another day ;D

I will be leaving BHM soon and I will be back in SEA around 10:25pm…. maybe sooner if the pilot speeds… ha ha ha.. zoom zoom

Woo hoo… It is all done… I am done with finals and I am done with this semister of school. Don’t ask me how I did… because I still have few day of enjoyment before I find out how badly I did on my exam. I really think I have a love hate relationship with my 533 cryptography class. In one hand, I enjoy it because it is challenging and I am learning new ideas and polishing up old concepts. I actually used some Calculus on my final!!! Wow Calculus!!!… I haven’t used any calculus since college. Anyway, I enjoy the challenge and the concept, but the subject is really hard and the part I don’t like is the lack of help from school. But that’s ok… it is all over now… so move on to bigger and better things.

So what is next you say???

Well… I am going home for Mother’s day. That is this week.

Next week, I am going to Las Vegas for the IWCE conference. I will be there until thursday.
Then the week after I have monday off :D
yeah….
and then MAY is over!!!

Focus…. the goal is to get my CCNP by the end of Summer!!!
