Michael Chong

When I came back from China last summer I was at home before going back to graduate school and came across some pictures of Michael Chong. I didn't know who he was. My sister, Crystal, didn't know either, but my brother, Jared did. He said, "That's my buddy, Michael Chong. I used to kick his butt." I didn't think anything more about it until I read a couple of posts on the San Jose Forum, so I asked my Dad if I could put some of Michael Chong's pictures on the site.
