Muzman: You can't drink as much vodka as i do and not eat any bread!! Bread is an important component to balance off them vodka! You don't eat bread = you're wasted ;o

PS: FREE Bread and Vodka for everyone! join #BreadMakers on DALnet (be nice and say please and thank you.. or im gonna cut your head off!)

Sijun cause thats the chinese name given to me by my great-grandmother on my dads side. Well technically its Shi-Jun, i always pronounced it as a Si-Jun though, and Sijun is cooler than Shijun....

I originally had registered the domain to for my web design company i wanted to start (nothing big, just me photoshop and notepad)...but i soon got tired of web design so i made it my personal site address.

Well, its hard to pronounce chinese sounds with english letters but the closest i can think of is:

Shi is pronounced like : "Shr"
Jun as in June....The u sound is "ü"...where you curl the tongue when you say it...impossible for me to explain...hehe

Thats if you wanna say it the chinese way. When i read it off to people as read in english i just say sijun as in: Sigh-June

long story short: say it however the heck you want ;-)
