Dot Com Pho – Healthy And Happy Edition

After the events of the past week, we decided that this edition of Dot Com Pho would be healthier and happier than normal. In order to do that, we headed to Pho Vancouver at 4136 Main Street to meet the happiest Pho restaurateur in the world. Pho Vancouver is not your average Pho house. For one thing, the place accepts credit cards!

Making the trip to Vancouver to enjoy a nice bowl of Pho were myself and Sarah, Stephen Fung, Greg Morgan, Moneca and Ed Lau, who showed up an hour late. Anyone is welcome to join us for Dot Com Pho. Follow me on Twitter to find out the time and location of the next one.

For this edition of Dot Com Pho, we have Mr. Happy Pho, Lemon Grass Chicken, hot pepper fail, the gadget of the week, healthy water, UGM shout outs, exercise by osmosis and a whole lot more. Dot Com Pho was filmed with a Flip Mino (HD Look) and edited on the Apple MacBook Pro using iMovie 08.

    hey you screwed up the url for one of the website its suppose to be not

    1. where he placed these urls ???

      Post your hostpital photos and november earnings chow. 😀

      1. Why does everyone want to see pain and money? Sad, Sad World.

    2. John Chow says:

      Sorry about that. At least I got the URL right in the end credits. 🙂

      1. Oh yes, its
        thanks for the CORRECT credits at the end 😀

    3. SPMM says:

      yeah… i caught that too.

  5. Stephen Fung says:

    I think that’s the Flip Mino Regular because I have the Flip Mino HD here and it’s a pain to import and edit (big file sizes).

    That’s what Ed gets for getting there late. Instead of RockStar parking in front of the place, he got a RockStar fine! LOL!

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s not the HD. It’s the regular Mino. I just processed the video in 16:9 to give it that “HD Look” 🙂

      1. Stephen Fung says:

        Sort of disappointing that after all that processing, the HD looks about the same as the regular.

        1. or maybe you just have a reg screen….HD can only do so much. I will say that since watching Law and Order in HD, I can’t look at it in anything less. My expenditures just went up. Thanks for taking time to meet fellow bloggers chow. Question: I assume that you have a lot of followers who want to do what you are going in the area. Why don’t more come?

    great post john.

  7. It sucks to eat those parking tickets. I aboslutely hate it!

    Anyways John, what did you order on the supposedly “healthy” Pho edition? 😀


    1. I would also like to know if Moneca is a sales person for that “healthy” water because these things are all the same. It seems like AMWAY all over again…

      1. see below for answer to your question.

        i want to thank you for asking the question.



    2. Stephen Fung says:

      It’s Ed’s fault he was late!

      I think that Healthy Water is Moneca’s own branded product.

      1. Ed Lau says:

        It’s all good…I got a buddy that works as a meter maid get in there and void the ticket for me. =)

  8. Azmi says:

    John, I’m anxiously waiting for your November income report, as with most of your other readers, I think.

    1. Li Weng says:

      Why would you be anxious about someone else’s income 😛

  9. Ben Pei says:

    Ah healthy and happy is the most important! hehe..

    1. Li Weng says:

      True! Without optimal health, no matter how much money you have, you will not be able to fully enjoy what you have. Health is number 1 for me. It’s the basis for enjoying life.

  10. Health is what we need most John … Keep it up 🙂

  11. Pheak T says:

    i want a flip mino too, regular will do, now that john posted 16:9 to give it that HD look i can just spend $79 at wal mart for it yayy!..john knows all the secrets

  12. mama bok says:

    When i come to Vancouver the next time.. i’ll make sure to crash your Pho party.. 🙂
    Good to see you well. 🙂

    Hey John,

    I don’t care about your income report, seems you put out so much crap that everyone buys, I’m sure your doing fine… are you doing after getting out of the hospital big guy???

    1. John Chow says:

      I’m dong well. I’ve changed my diet and have gone back to the gym on a daily basis. I have another blood test next week. I’m hoping the results will show improvement.

      1. Li Weng says:

        It sounds good that you’re following a healthier lifestyle. This might not be such a bad thing after all. At least it wasn’t serious and it’s prompted you to look after your well-being more.

  14. of course i am the sales man…urrr the superwoman for the water product. lucky for you that i am. i stand behind this product with my profession and also for my concern for the general wellbeing for my established clientale. i do not sell what i do not use myself. luckily i have been practising mlm sales for a long time so when this product came along, i said to myself…’hey, i can sell water!’

    luckily for me i know the person who got me into so the snakeoil salesman aspect was nil. i think this is timely. enviromentally we could all stop using plastic bottles and drink healthy water. i sure have learnt a lot since i signed on april 2008. and do your own research. i am not going to twist your arm.

    i am committed to serve. always.

    Didn’t see if anyone followed Moneca’s healthy example with no MSG, extra vegetables, and healthy water. Did others try the water?

  16. Karl Hadwen says:

  17. The Flip Mino looks like it’s awesome. I think I want one.
