Dot Com Pho – Lemon Grass Edition

We went to a restaurant call Green Lemongrass for this week’s edition of Dot Com Pho. We had a very nice turn out of 15 people, including three first timers. One of the main purposes of Dot Com Pho is to meet new people so it’s always nice when that actually happens.

For the Lemon Grass (or Glass) edition of Dot Com Pho, we have stock advice from Tim Sykes, playing Connect 4, why the Macbook sucks, wine tasting, the Gadget of the Week, Twitter shoutouts and a whole lot more. Enjoy the video I look forward to seeing you at a future Dot Com Pho.

    Thank you for the shout out Ed Lau. I don’t know why I thought you would be going to a wedding to take photos.

    Thank you Stephen Fung for saying the shout out.

    1. Stephen says:

      I believe that was iPhone Gary that had to be at the wedding. Poor guy is getting trained to be put away forever by his woman.

    LOL at Stephen’s motorboat.

    1. Stephen says:

      I like to motorboat. Don’t you? LOL

    Hey Ray shaved! lol did we ever find out what Ray’s lastname is? Or is it like Cher?

    1. It’s like Prince. I’m looking for a symbol to convert to. Is Prince’s symbol trademarked?

      1. Tyler Ingram says:

        Probably but I’m sure we can make a cooler one for you!

    I need to start one of these Dot Com Pho events in the Minneapolis area! It’s always great to meet fellow bloggers and network.

    1. Tyler Ingram says:

      I was in Minneapolis last week, it could have been fun to do a dotcompho there

  5. Today’s lunch was so much fun – and the spring rolls were delicious! Crystal and I enjoyed seeing/meeting you all and making new friends. Love the flexible keyboard ‘gadget of the week’!

    Crystal says, ‘Thanks for the autographed book Tim, and the Market Leverage T-shirt John!”

    How does the motor boat go, Stephen??? LOL

    See you next time 🙂

    1. Stephen says:

      I like to motorboat =)

    Interesting video you have there. Perhaps you can also post more photos of the food ordered. By the way, what software application did you use to add text to the video?

    Haha…thanks for shout out. I knew my Last name would make it difficult. It is even difficult in Polish and people right there, make often mistakes in it.

    If you want to check how it should be (less or more) pronunciated, you can try this synthetizer Just type in Kacper Wrzesniewski and select Polish voice.

    Have a good day 🙂

    1. MIchael Kwan says:

      Is your first name pronounced the same as Casper? Like the Friendly Ghost?

      1. Kacper says:

        Exactly 🙂

        and my last name is related to month September.

        Wrzesien in PL = September, and there is no direct translation of Wrzesniewski, but it is less or more something like a September’s guy.

        For sure, I could pick an easier domain name for my blog, but on the other side, some people have a reason to bookmark it or subscribe to RSS as it is so difficult to remember.

        1. Stephen says:

          Can you spell that phonetically? Until I know how to say it, I don’t want to say it 😆

  10. Catie says:

    I didn’t know it was a weekly thing. Lucky, but thats very awesome. I like that you guys are open to newbies. I will keep that in mind if I am ever in the area!

    1. Me too, it’s good to know that the “gurus” are open to the little guys 😉

  11. soares says:

    Men really fun,its this times im sad to be so far away…in portugal….maybe next year ill go to canada on vacations and pass by with my wife and son.

  12. I cannot BELIEVE a video of your dinner brings so many people to a website…

    …and then I read your PDF. Thank you, for inspiring me, giving a business model, and telling me how badly taxes were ripping me off in plain terms. You are awesome John Chow. I really do mean it.

  17. Andrei Buiu says:

    Oh, how much I envy your meetings.

  18. Keral Patel says:

    I wish I was living somewhere nearby and could have joined in there.

  19. CoolProducts says:

    I really want to get something like this going where I live. It always looks like so much fun.

  20. Downloadic says:

    Nice video and I want to get something like this

  21. It sucks that I missed getting my name in the shout-out. My power cord for my laptop went out, and I had to wait for a new one from Dell.

  22. BusinessX says:

    I never was interested in your Pho meets until I saw the PinkyArcade post. This is the first video I watched. I get it now! Wow, makes want to travel just to attend one.

    Start a meet where I am and we make a preamble to John Chow before we eat. Maybe a secret handshake is order?
