Year of the Tiger 2010 Community Reception – Presented by Coca-Cola and Target

Posted February 5th, 2010 by Peter · 7 Comments

Hello SAPL and AC Family!

I am proud to have been invited as a prominent Asian blogger to Coca-Cola and Target’s inaugural Community Reception for the Year of the Tiger 2010. It shows how much of a voice we have given you, our readers, in the past 3 years. Before, there was no site that focused on dismantling and disseminating Asian stereotypes and explaining them in a way that sheds light into the culture and people that have these so-called “habits.”


In 2010, we at Asian Central and Stuff Asian People Like would like our readers, subscribers, and writers that we truly care about the Asian Community at large. We want to give Asians a voice because they are usually outspoken or too timid in today’s society. We are followers. This website was what Asian Americans needed because prior– they had no voice. We encourage you to voice your opinions so that people do not continue misunderstanding your cultures– our cultures. But there I go again– off on tangents about Community Values and Culture…

… so without Further Adieu– Let’s go to a quick recap of the night’s events:

The night started out like every other– light rain and a 25 minute BART ride across (or should I say underneath) the San Francisco Bay.



It ended in San Francisco, where my friend Nick and I (he loves Coca-Cola) walked about 30 minutes to 1AM on Howard Street (the site of the Community Reception).



The welcoming committee ushered us in at around 5:45 and executives from Coca-Cola and Target gave speeches about how Asian American populations are very important to their plans for future growth.




They then introduced two artists from the area who created artwork pieces that made it into the Year of the Tiger Calendar (only available at select Targets).


I had to get Ivan’s autograph and interview him a bit. Here’s his art piece if you were wondering!


The other pieces were awe-inspiring as well.








It was a wonderful experience meeting people that deeply cared for the Asian American Community.



Local News reporters were also on hand.

And the Hors d’Oeuvres were amazing!


Let’s not forget the goodies we received…



All in all, I want to thank the people at IW Group for the invitation and setting up this event. You did a great job in such a short amount of time. Have a safe trip back to SoCal!

Hopefully, Asian Central and Stuff Asian People Like will attend this event for years to come.


Here’s the entire night’s recap in Photos!


In other news:

This week, we also launched Asian Central 4, a community driven by Asian people who strive and look for deeper connections to their roots by meeting people who are very well versed on the subject. The community is still very much alive and active, a place where you can make friends that understand who you actually are (or learn about their cultures).

Stuff Asian People Like was also updated recently to include nested comments and email notifications (to foster better communication). It is all in an effort to create a large website community where Asians can be themselves and learn not to disconnect from their roots.

Thank you for your devotion and support!

    I think it is rather easy to see from the other comments as well that this post is well written and useful.
