Miscellaneous Friday Ramblings

Dot Com Pho Richmond

I’m holding a Pho meetup at Pho Richmond tomorrow. Normally, I go to Pho Lan but we tried Pho Richmond last week and it was really good. As far as I know, they’re the only Pho house in town that serves AAA beef Pho. It’s very tender.

Pho Richmond is located in the Continental Plaza at the corner of Cambie Road and Sexsmith Road. They’re in the most North East unit. You can’t miss it.

Dot Com Pho Richmond starts at 12:30 this Saturday. If you wish to attend, send me an email and I’ll save a seat for you. So far, we have 8 confirmed but can always use a few more. See you there!

Dot Com Ramen

Ed Lau is still stuck in Japan and seems to be really missing Dot Com Pho. So, he ventured out to do his own one person Dot Com Pho episode. However, he couldn’t find a Pho house. Desperate for anything with noodles in it, Ed ended up at the Ramen Kokugikan and produced Dot Com Ramen.

Michael Kwan Crashes a Segway

Last Wednesday, we went to Langley BC to ride some Segways. It was great fun and I’m seriously considering buying a couple to terrorize the neighborhood. This video was taken from Stephen’s Flip Mino, which was also damaged in the crash.

The $47,000 Oil Change

Some rich dude in Qatar needed an oil change on his Lamborghini LP640. I guess there’s no place in Qatar to change a Lambo’s oil so he flew his Lambo 6,500 miles from the airport in Qatar to Heathrow to have the car’s oil changed. The total cost of the shipment was around $40,000, which doesn’t even include the $7,000 for the oil change itself.

You know, for the cost of shipping the car, he could have just flown in some techs direct from the Lambo factory and had the oil change done. For those who are wondering, you need to change the oil on a LP640 every 3,000 miles. You also need to change the clutch at 10,000 mile. You don’t want to know how much that cost!
