November 7, 2006 - Good things and farewell for now! I got a nice surprise recently! I did an interview over the summer for a cover story with Deal Magazine, and I wasn't sure if it was going to come out or not. But it did! I am definitely very pleased with how it turned out. Thanks to Deal for doing such a great job! I've run lots of errands but still have so much to do before I leave tomorrow for Singapore. I haven't even started packing, and I have to get some touch-ups to my new hair color, which you'll see in pictures over the coming weeks. (PINK!) I don't know how I'm going to get everything done before my flight on Tuesday night, but I have to find a way… I wanted to take a minute to say thanks to everyone for the kind words and encouragement about my upcoming trips. I have to say that every message really means a lot – advice, funny comments, compliments… The support – even when I'm knocked out of a tournament – makes me feel like I can get back up and try again next time. I'm very lucky to have so many good people around me, and you need to know that I really appreciate it! I also want to say that if you've sent me a message in the past few days and I haven't responded, please understand that I'm not ignoring you! I've really been swamped, and I will answer you as soon as I can – I promise! And while I'm in Singapore, I'm going to be super busy with poker and some marketing opportunities, and in Vietnam, I'll be spending time with my dad as well as doing lots of charity work, so please understand if I don't answer many e-mails or MySpace messages right away. Even so, I do love the support and I thank you for it – from the bottom of my heart! I will be leaving for Asia tomorrow night and I wanted to say farewell to everyone before I take off. And I'm taking all of your support and kind wishes with me. If any of you out there are going to be at the BetFair Asian Poker Tour, please come by and say Hi! I'm VERY excited about this trip and hope to write a quick blog or two during my trip to let you know how it's going. Stay tuned and Take Care Everyone!
