300th Blog Post

Officially, this is my 300th blog post. About a year ago, I had just gotten roughly 20 posts in a matter of about one month. Which more than double all the posts prior to that. And it was pretty fun. But I still lacked a clear focus for the blog. You'll notice the shift to more of a review style with the last 200 or so posts. I am still getting the hang of this whole blogging thing. The focus now is mainly entertainment from Asia, specifically movies and dramas. Do I dive into other things? Yes, like Tammy and Victor's Amazing Race 14 run for the 1 million dollar prize. America's Best Dance Crew. You get the point.

History of Populasian
I would be lying if I said I came up with the term Populasian. It was actually a "project" that sprung to life in the fall of 1999, almost 10 years ago. A get together of a bunch of people that had grown up together from the late 80s through the mid 90s happened. We had all grown up, but now went to different universities and relocated out of the area. But, for some reason, we all got together that one day. As a result of that get together, we said, let's put up a website where we can keep track of each other and "write" stuff about the Asian American experience (much like what a facebook group does). Many names where thrown into the pot for the name of the website. I cannot remember the name I suggested. Populasian eventually became the unanimous winner. So, I happened to be the tech geek and set up the website. The website never came to be much other than me parking it as participation became like pulling teeth. Now, its resurrected as the name for my blog.
