Best. Fundraiser. Ever!

Last Friday, I was lucky enough to attend Asian American Journalists Association – LA’s Trivia Bowl XVIII.  The event was a fundraiser for student scholarships and professional programs. The event was held at an ABC7 studio in Glendale and hosted by David Ono.

My random thoughts and takeaways:

  • The metal part that fastens the eraser on a pencil is called ‘ferrule’.
  • Congrats to KPCC for winning the Trivia Bowl XVIII Rice Cup.
  • David Ono is really funny!
  • I am really happy that the journalists did better than the lawyers.  Whew!
  • I wonder what team costumes IW Group will come up with next year.
  • I loved learning about people’s knowledge/expertise.  My new friend from CSU-Pomona, a Millenial, knew about operas.
  • Multi-cultural.
  • I dig the rapport between all the local journalists. Most of them are really witty, with a hint of snark.
  • I regret not outbidding my competition on a night stay at Terranea Resort.  Had I increased it by $50, it would still be less than a night’s stay because of taxes. Lesson learned.
  • I really should know who makes my food.  Fyi: Sriracha is made by Huy Fong Foods (Mike Fong knew this!).
  • Had I read the article links on my Facebook newsfeed (instead of just scanning the feed), I probably could have contributed a little bit more.
  • There are a lot of really awesome and fun people who love L.A. and the community as much as I do.  I am so happy to have met more of them at Trivia Night.
  • I am going to have to watch the movie Say Anything because it comes up a lot in trivia competitions, especially this scene.
  • Last but not least, the best part of the night was spending time with friends for a great cause.

Shout out to Bill I. for the invitation and Buick for being a sponsor and hosting us. Team Enclave was not last!
