Dot Com Pho – Sally Chow Is The Star Edition

After a few weeks in Vancouver, I headed over to Washington State to host another Seattle Dot Com Pho. Normally, I would try to feature everyone who showed up but Sally decided to steal the show. I could have called this episode the Sally Chow Show instead of Dot Com Pho since she was in more than 70% of the video – from walking with her froggy umbrella to demoing the new Apple iOS.

We discovered something interesting about the Seattle Pho scene. It seems like all the Pho restaurants are own by one person or one group. We found out a few weeks ago that Pho Bac owns Pho Viet right next door. Now we’ve found out that they also a own a bunch of other Pho shops in the International District. They all use different names so you think there’s competition but there really isn’t. It’s like a Pho mafia, which may explain why their customer service sucks – you can’t get Pho at the International District from anyone else!

On this episode of Dot Com Pho, we have Sally and the froggy umbrella, Sally showing the Apple iOS, Sally showing the gadget of the week, Sally playing with her iPhone, Sally mixing ice coffee and Sally doing pretty much everything else. Travis did managed to sneak in there to give a plug for the relaunch of his projet, My Big Give. Enjoy!

    That umbrella rocks! Pho mafia, that is hilarious!

    1. Ya Thats very coool and Happy Umbrella.

      1. We all know that Sally is fast learner.

        Remember when John got his iMac and Sally was helping him.

        I am sure John simply love it when Sally help him in his work.

        1. PPC Ian says:

          Yeah! It will be awesome when Sally starts guest posting on JC. 🙂

          1. We will have to wait at least 10 to 12 years for that.

            May be at that time we will have new technology and new platform …

            But I am sure Sally will perform at that time whatever may be the technology and platform. She is intelligent, charming and well mannered kid.

            God bless her.

      lol is that umbrella keropi?

      1. Would love to get one for my son.

        1. I think sons would appreciate something more masculine… like a bear or tiger 🙂

    It’s my first time to see the coffee dripping over the milk. Want to try one someday. Looks yummy to me.

    And what’s the use of those leaves beside the bowl? I’m just curious?

    1. You will always see great foods and places.

      If you want to more try google achieves and I am sure you will see many great post about food.

  3. song lyrics says:

    boiling unique umbrella, but I do not see the man, who is he? heheh

    1. Lollzzz … like your sense of humour.

  4. You seem fantastic with kids John!

    I think she had a little help with her website, eh? 🙂

    1. Mangalary says:

      That is what fathers are all about…

      I can see a great future for your Sally.

      1. Yeah John is building one great assets for her and I am sure this will have good worth.

        But I am also bit afraid too … when it comes to about children.

      2. d3so says:

        it’s only a matter of time when she becomes the next dot com mogul 😉

    2. d3so says:

      i think she had a little help with everything.

    Hey John, did you tweet out a different Pho Bac address than the one you went to today? I go to the Pho Bac on 415 7th Avenue South all the time and the interior from your video doesn’t look the same. I wanted to try to make it today but I probably wouldn’ve have found you guys!

    1. John Chow says:

      Hey Harlan. Ya, we were at the Pho Bac on Jackson. I tweeted out the wrong address.

      1. Harshad says:

        You can have a fun contest there… find John at one of the Pho Bacs this week and win some cool stuff!

        1. Here is my idea …

          # Simply add one pin code or location (where too many pho restaurants are there)

          # Ask them to find out you first.

          # First 5 persons who get there will get prize.

          John I am sure you will get sponsorship of those prizes easily.

  6. Harshad says:

    Sally seems to know a lot about the iPad…. too cute!

    1. Yeah she knows …

      How to turn it off …

      How to increase volume …

      How to get into her game folder

      Other touch screen options and many more.

      My son also knows every thing about desktop which interest him.

    An iPhone, an iPad.. Cute little Sally is already a teach savvy girl..

  8. stop smoking says:

    That’s sweet…

    Sally must be lucky to have an ipad at her age and she’s quite good at it as well.

    Back when I was 5 .. there were only 286’s … can remember playing turtle ninjas.

  9. fas says:

    Sally is so cute..

  10. It is a funny umbrella …

    1. It is not a funny umbrella, it is a happy umbrella ! 🙂

  11. PPC Ian says:

    I think it’s really interesting that the same company owns all/most of the Pho restaurants in Seattle. Where I work in SF, right across from the Giants Stadium, the same company owns several restaurants. Even though one is a sports bar, one is Mexican, and one is upscale, the food at all three tastes the same! 🙂

  12. Kirk Taylor says:

    My 8 year old was asking for his own phone just the other day and now he’s going to be demanding one because he thinks Sally has one!

    1. d3so says:

      I think sally does have one because i think john has the iphone 4 while the one sally has is either a 3g or 3gs.

  13. Nice umbrella… haha! I like this.. Thanks!!

  14. Next year she starts high school she is so smart lol
