CommonWealth App Video

We finished editing the app video for CommonWealth magazine.


We went and filmed with our friend Mengshin tonight. We were filming outside of a mall for one of the shots and got stopped by a security guard. He had to check and make sure we were able to film.

After filming we went out to eat with 乾媽 at TGI Fridays. We got to eat a lot of good food. Burgers, pasta, salad, quesadillas, brownies and ice cream. It was a great combination. Thanks again 乾媽!你對我們太好!

Lantern Festival

Last sunday was the Lantern Festival. Our cousin from the south came up to Taipei and we got to see her for a few hours. I haven't seen her for over 5 years and Todd hasn't seen her for maybe over 10 years. We hit up the zoo and then got some lunch at the restaurant Modern Toilet. It's a cool restaurant that serves your food in little toilets or sinks. The seats there are actually toilets. Later that afternoon we decided to go to Pingxi for the Lantern Festival. It probably wasn't the best choice because there were way too many people. We had to wait 2 hours to get on a bus to go home.

Last Day Of The Workshop/Vacation

Yesterday was the last day of the workshop and the end of our 9 day vacation. During the workshop I had to leave to go film a couple guys down by the 101. One of the guys was dressed up as Mario and juggled boxes. The other guy plays with a couple different types of yo-yos. He's been practicing for 7 years and he is amazing at it.

Happy Valentines Day

Today was the first day of the Reebok workshop. Many people showed up and it went from 9am-5pm. They made everyone work so hard. I was tired just watching them. During the workshop I had to leave to go film Kyle skating again so I could get some last shots to finish the video. After, I went back to help film some more at the workshop.




2/13

Todd was invited to help teach at a parkour workshop this weekend. Reebok is sponsoring the event and one of the original members of a team that introduced parkour will be there teaching. Today, we went to a couple spots in Taipei to look for places where they will be able to train. This is a 4 day event and I think a lot of people will be showing up to train.

New Friend Meng

Last night, Grace took us out to dinner for an early birthday dinner since she won't be here for my birthday. We went to T.G.I Fridays. So good. We also met a new friend last night. She saw our videos on YouTube and wants us help film a video for her. She does a sport called cup stacking. She is only 16 and is one of the fastest cup stackers in Taiwan. She is going to L.A. in April to compete in the world cup stacking championship. Below is a video of her to give you an idea of what cup stacking is.

Sunday Funday With Kyle Ke

Today, we went out with Kyle Ke to film. He is a skateboarder that is sponsored by Nike and Red Bull and gave us the chance to film him. We went under the Jianguo bridge because there is a little skatepark there.




A skate team came to Taiwan and today was their last day here
so they left their extra decks so people could take them.
I made sure to grab a couple decks and those wheels.
This bag weighs more than me

Random Clip

This was a little clip from last summer with one of our friends we met through parkour. I was bored and added some stuff to it.
