Happy Birthday Grandma!

Happy birthday Grandma! We hope you had a great birthday! We wish we could have made it back for your birthday but unfortunately my school wouldn't allow me to take a vacation.

We love and you miss you a lot!

Since we can't sing very well, some of my students wanted to help me out.

Filming, Dinner, Chiropractor

Nothing too exciting happened this week. Just been teaching and doing some filming. We were contacted about a week ago by a company looking for us to film a fashion show for the company Juicy Couture. They are a pretty big company so we'll be filming the fashion show in a few weeks. After school today, Todd and I met up with our friend Eddie again to do some more filming for his bike video. After filming, we met up with Joyce to go to dinner at a restaurant called Royal Host. After dinner we went to a chiropractor. He cracked all my bones and it definitely helped relieve some of the tension in my neck.

Yo-Yo Filming

We met a guy out here that started his own yo-yo company and he wanted us to film the 2nd best yo-yo guy in Asia. He performed by the 101 yesterday with a couple people so we went over there to film them. The guy that has his own company actually gave us a couple of his yo-yos.

Breakdancing Video with Shunta

Just finished the breakdancing video we filmed with Shunta back in February. We have been waiting to find the right music for the video so we asked a friend back home to write a song for the video. We filmed at many different spots in Taipei.

Another week

Nothing exciting has happened this week. We finished up with the Quiksilver fashion show video so now we have a little break from projects. We are still working on our own videos though. Last week was the 4th of July so we went out to dinner with some of the people that were in the music video we filmed with our friend. We thought we would go out for American food since it was the 4th of July but instead they all decided to go to an Asian seafood restaurant. We're still staying busy with school. My director decided to give me summer classes so now I'm teaching an extra four hours a week. I teach it every Monday and Thursday from 9-11am. The weather has been really hot and really rainy lately. It seems to always rain on the days when I want to go out and film. It was rainy this afternoon, but after it cleared up I went up to the Zhinan temple to get some shots of Taipei city.

Took this with my phone from our apartment window
