Earlier this week, it was announced that my cousin, Phong Hong was a finalist in the Oscars Designer Challenge 2010. If he wins, the "trophy girl" will be wearing his design to present one of the Oscar statues to one of the winners at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards.
Please help my cousin win!
Go to ==> Oscar.com <== to vote for Phong Hong. Click on "Select" to view the video and then "Submit Vote." You can log in with your Facebook, Twitter, or MySpace account information. You can vote once a day, EVERY DAY until the competition ends at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time on March 1. I've been finding these monthly "Ask Wandering Chopsticks" posts pretty useful for random announcements and stuff... So quick question, when I link to similar restaurants at the end of my posts, I've been excluding restaurants that have closed. Should I keep doing that, or do you want to see links to closed restaurants anyway? In some cases, it's just a name change so seeing closed restaurants is still useful if I haven't been able to revisit those locations or if you want to see what type of food was available? What about non-SoCal restaurants? For instance, do you want to see all dim sum restaurant posts linked at the end, or just ones in the same geographic area? Or do you not care to have links to similar restaurants at all? Also, in case you haven't noticed, there is now a "Print Friendly" button at the end of every post. Click on that link and you'll have an ad-free version of the page to print. The link also gives you the option to disable images too so you can print out just a text version of any page. Unfortunately, I've already caught someone using this option to copy, paste, and republish several of my recipes on her own site. Please do not steal my content. I get very upset when I find my images and recipes republished without my permission. If you like something, bookmark it or print it out for your personal use. If you're a blogger, link to it or write what you did in your own words and use your own photos. Please respect my copyright and the amount of work I put into creating this blog.
And, mainly because I didn't want anyone else to squat on my page, I've created a Wandering Chopsticks Facebook fan page. Beyond linking to new recipe or restaurant posts, I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do with it? Suggestions? Talk amongst yourselves? Upload photos of you cooking my recipes? I know some people want to comment, but don't want to do it on the blog so you can comment there. Although, I still far prefer interactions to happen here...
Anyway, that's all I've got for now. Got a recipe question? Restaurant question? Just want to say, "Hi?" Did you miss Ask Wandering Chopsticks 1? Go there if you did. Or click on the "Ask Wandering Chopsticks" tag below for previous editions. Otherwise, what's on your mind? You have until 11:59 p.m. Sunday, February 28.
