YouTubers: Shawn Blakey, AJ Chin, and Damian Chung
Blog Written By: Kira
Every Saturday my cousins Shawn Blakey, AJ Chin, and Damian Chung all go to small local restaurants and film and give feedback about the food they eat. They try to give the small local restaurants attention so other people can go and eat their delicious food. On their YouTube channel they have 2.61K subscribers. My dad, my brother, and I go to lunch with my cousins sometimes. My favorite restaurant that they went to is Myungrang dog. They have Korean corn dogs. My favorite corn dog from them is the mozzarella potato dog. It’s a deep fried crunchy corn dog shell that has little tater tots on top and inside it’s stuffed mozzarella cheese. You can also add sugar if you want too. Myungrang dog is located in Mesa, AZ.
In other countries and cultures we might learn things about them that we find bizarre. However we Americans have weird habits in our culture that are considered weird to many cultures and countries around the world.
Number 1 Root Beer. I love root beer especially the root beer floats. Many countries citizens who have tried root beer hate it though. Why? Well the reason is to many non Americans it tastes like cough syrup. The reason it tastes like cough syrup to them is because root beer is made out of sassafras like flavoring and sassafras the chemical is used in medicine in other countries.
Number 2 White teeth. If you think about our culture here in America we have an obsession with white teeth. Think about it. Every celebrity has a lot shiner teeth than you see on the street. You can even find ultra teeth whitening product in any supermarket. On TV so many commercials are about how to get the perfect white teeth with this product. This focus on dazzling white teeth is strange in other countries though. One example that attest to this is that in Japan you might not find the Crest 3d Whitening strips in their supermarket that you would find here in places like Walmart.
Number 3 Chocolate Wars which is better. Here in America we have a lot of chocolate brands to choose from, from Hershey to Reese’s . In the UK one popular chocolate is the Cadbury brand. Many people from the US and the UK will say that chocolate brands in the UK are better. They say it’s better because chocolate in the UK has more cocoa bean in it than the US. While the US version of chocolate has more sugar. The flavor of chocolate overseas is said to taste richer and not overly sweet. A Hershey bar is the complete opposite as it has less cocoa bean and more sugar in it so many from across the pond say it’s too sweet. In fact Hershey even seems to not want to change its recipe even when trying to make British like chocolate for us Americans. Hershey has the license to produce Cadbury chocolate in the US. People were not impressed by the Hershey version though. With many saying it tastes no different than a regular Hershey bar. Whatever the case, chocolate between these two are different; which is better is one‘s own personal opinion.
I like a lot of food but my favorite is pasta. It’s red sauce and vegetables. I like spaghetti noodles. I like to make it, it’s so delicious. Once a week. Just make it creative. My mom taught me to make it. It’s not spicy but it has garlic in it. I definitely want people to try it. I like turkey meat in it too. I like eggplant, broccoli and squash. You can eat it for both lunch and dinner it does not matter.

There was a hunchback named Tyler, who was shunned due to his appearance, until, one day, he saw a young woman named Ginger, who had a beautiful smile. They decided to fly to Milan and spend the summer there, basking in the sunlight and ocean waves. They also agreed to get married in Frankfort, Germany. They adopted quintuplets from France and also adopted a litter of 115 dalmatians. They lived in a huge mansion in Barcelona, Spain. They went skydiving in Japan and dived for pearls too. They hiked to the top of Mount Everest, where they held a wine tasting party. They also learned how to operate a twin engine jet ski. They ziplined across the Grand Canyon and bungee jumped into a dormant volcano. They did a lot of wild and crazy things together. They decided to work together in a bakery and created the world’s biggest red velvet cake. It was the size of a mountain. They invited everyone in Eastern Europe to eat the cake. Tyler and Ginger went white water rafting down the Colorado River in June for 2 weeks in a pair of small boats.
I enjoy going to Wendy’s. It’s a nice, quick & welcoming fast-food place that lives by its number 1 rule: Every Hamburger must be Fresh & never Frozen. It all started with an idea by founder Dave Thomas, who believed that Fresh quality is key to a Hamburger’s success, not freezing it for another day like McDonald’s.
I enjoy going to the Wendy’s location near my neighborhood. I’ve gone there so many times with either my Mom or Dad that their servers are starting to recognize me. Isn’t that special.
Overall, I like Wendy’s nice & welcoming environment where I can sit down and enjoy my food, even if there are a lot customers or if there’s music I don’t enjoy hearing.
“I am thankful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual.”

Thanksgiving is a time where we share a meal together and celebrate our families, friends and the people we care about. In honor of Thanksgiving, we asked SEEDs participants to reflect on their lives and share their thoughts on what they are thankful for.
I’m pretty much thankful for the life I even have to begin with, having the family I was born in, and the world that I live in. Sure with all its ups, there’s also downs, but that’s just a part of everything. It’s what everyone goes through. Everyone is different, so not everything will be the same for them. Maybe they won’t even be born in the same reality. Over time, people will realize that there’s always gonna be some hardships they have to go through, but sometimes the point is to actually go through them and maybe come out somewhere on top. It’s all part of learning and knowing what to do when the time comes. We all just need to be thankful about what we have while we have them.
I am thankful for my counselor and psychiatrist because they have in their own ways helped me feel better and lessen my OCD thoughts. My counselor has talked with me about my OCD and how I can stop it from affecting me. My psychiatrist has prescribed medicine that has lowered my compulsive OCD thoughts.
I am thankful for the internet because with its access I can find things I never knew about that I will enjoy. The internet can answer questions I have without paying money for a book that will answer my question or going to the library and looking for a book they may not have that could answer a lot of questions I have.
I am thankful for my friends & family because without them life would be really boring.
I am thankful for my family and my girlfriend and my friends.
I am thankful for Hot Wheels and I really like them because they are my favorite cars.
I’m thankful for my family because they’re sweet, helpful and very kind! I’m thankful for SEEDs because it is a really fun place to learn, and also the instructors are really friendly and supportive!
I am thankful for Seeds because I have friends.
