Since I work and live under the pretense that no one sees it, and I remain totally anonymous, I suppose I must reconsider that if I allow myself to accept this honor. Until recently I was not aware of the Asian Hall of Fame, so not only will I explore what it means, but I will surely be telling my family that I finally made it, and never have to get a real job after all”.
