The 888 Blog

This blog was created to shed awareness of issues that East Asians face politically, economically and culturally. While we are passionate about our views we still maintain our sense of humor and may occasionally post some funny Asian things found on the internet.

Marketer and administrator for 888 Auctions.  My passion is to build and grow businesses.  I am also facinated by the history of our cultures and the impact of politics and technology on our present day societies.
