Happy 47th birthday to Scotty Nguyen!

Nguyen is one of those dudes that my parents would never associate with publicly, because he drinks and smokes and curses and does drugs and has lost his fortune over and over again as a direct result of his vices.

But deep down, I know they love him. After all, he’s Vietnamese, and he’s such a consistent winner. Any time a Nguyen is winning in Vegas, my mom is happy.

Asian Gracefully, Sorta

Apropos of nothing, Jennifer Tilly (née Jennifer Chan) is 50. I saw her on a sexiest women over 50 list recently (#3!) and learned this little fact (she turned quinquagenarian in September). So when I look at these photos taken of her at some event this week…


I have to give it up to this ageless lady–crazy face, tranny weave, and asymmetrical boobage notwithstanding.

SPORTS ILLUSTRASIAN: Poker Faces

July 15th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

The final table of the World Series of Poker Main Event was set yesterday in Vegas, and three of the remaining nine players gunning for the $9.12 million dollar purse are Asian. David “Chino” Rheem, 28, and Kelly Kim, 31, both of Los Angeles, CA, along with 39 year-old accountant Darus Suharto of Toronto, Canada, will compete on November 9-10 for the big prize.

Why are Asians so good at poker? Well, there are the obvious reasons: we’re good at math, we’ve been gambling since the beginning of time, and we’ve got “inscrutable” poker faces.

Read Me: Suharto, Rheem, and Kim


Oh, and we love love love to win.

Good luck, boys!
