Yes. Ken Leung does rock.

Ken Krieger doesn't read CD, but he rocks, as well.

Many many congrats to both of them.

Thanks everyone! It was (and still is) definitely a very fun and wonderful experience for me (and stressful and sleepy too ). I totally didn't know what to say when Jason said Ken and my name during the award ceremony.

But anyway, I never did all these for the award. Everytime all I have to do is look at the people around me, and know all the work is worth while.

Also, like Jim said, the other Ken (the 1st Ken) rocks, and is my biggest mentor both in FIRST and in life. Couldn't have done all these without his gudiance and support.

Then there is Bill Gold, who I owe so much for helping me out every single time. He's one of my best friend in FIRST, and I couldn't have done all these without him.

Well, at least the two of them didn't walk away empty handed, besides their trophies, as seen in this photograph...



Bling bling!
Cash, Money, Millionairs, FIRST STYLE!
But really, who would deserve it as much as these guys, right? Hehehe...

Thanks for the kind words Ken. You and KenK definitely earned those awards. Youíre a great person to talk to, and even better to work with. I hope you donít move too far away if you transfer. Itíd suck not to be a BART trip or a short drive away from hanging out with you. Thanks also for all your hard work in the WRRF. Among many other WRRF credits, you and Jason pulled off a great Cal Games last fall, and Iím really looking forward to this yearís event. Keep it going buddy, and let me know if you need any help. Take care, and congratulations once again.
