I had a discussion with one of my friends about the fact that the first-born male in an Asian family has a tendency to feel responsible for his parents. To help them out with anything and to make sure their life is good. I never thought about this until it was spelled out to me like this.
I grew up with primarily American, not culture-specific ideals (or at least I think so). I grew up very far away from extended family members so I don't think their influence in this matter had much sway over me. Yet for some reason I do appear to follow this stereotype of the first-born Asian male.

When I heard of the old Infinity Ward (IW) developers forming Respawn Entertainment I was both excited and a little sad. One of my favorite online multiplayer games, the Call of Duty series was probably going to see a degradation in quality with them leaving IW and if gamers followed those developers around then that could potentially fracture the players amongst platforms and games. Which would lead to overall less fun times.
I finally borrowed the game from Gamerang. I'm at level 12 now and after playing for about three weeks I have to say that I may like this more than Call of Duty. To keep me honest I'll go over what I like and don't like about this game.
As an aside, I think the main difference for me is that when you're playing Call of Duty (I've put in way too many hours to come to this conclusion) there is a lot of emphasis on the 1v1 game. Because of that difference in timing due to bad connections, lag compensation, or ch…
Sopheap's birthday was a success. The grilled food was good as usual. The best part was the cake.With the help of a friend I got a picture cake from Ukrops. The picture was of him from middle school of him (I believe). I am not sure if he liked it or not. You be the judge.
