*******SupremeMasterTV**** – The Way and Message of the Kogi People of Colombia - P2/2 (In Spanish). Episode: 1609, Air Date: 9 February 2011.
Today I went to see a dog agility competition with Joseph and my wife. The competition and training was organized by Penang Agility Dog Association and is a non-profit organization founded in 2001. There was a SPCA Penang booth and Joseph was helping out since he is a full time volunteer at the shelter.
Most dogs were pedigree and I am not sure about how they train the doggie. Not many people turned up and according to Kogi(SPCA Penang worker), yesterday was a busy day instead. If you are interested in dog training and you are staying around Penang Island, you can check out their website for more info.

If Los Angeles had an official food, it would undoubtedly be the taco. And to feed LA's incessant need for 24/7 snack-sized meat-filled tortillas, there are seemingly thousands of mobile taco delivery vehicles (aka "taco trucks") across the megalopolis, each with its own interpretation of the classic dish. For those on a budget, taco trucks make for cheap, recession-friendly but delicious eats—usually not much more than a buck per item. And for food lovers everywhere, the lively online and offline discussion among aficionados shows that taco truck culture is about being part food critique and part political activist with just a little bit of hungry thrown in.
Highland Park, in the northeast part of the city near Eagle Rock and Mount Washington, is the city's proverbial taco capital, and that's where we start this episode of Good Food. Join our host, Evan Kleimain, to learn about the most common taco flavors—from the classic "al pastor," to the more adventurous cabeza (beef head and cheeks) and lengua (tongue). Then we head west to Venice Beach with Eddie Lin to sample the ultra-trendy Kogi truck where the Shin-Manguera family and chef Roy Choi bring gourmet Korean-inspired tacos to hipsters across LA, and still at only $2 a piece. Applauded for both their stellar menu as well as their high-tech savvy, you can get up-to-the-minute location data on the Kogi fleet at *******twitter****/kogibbq/.

How Korean BBQ firm Kogi are using Twitter to build engagement
After celebrating a Nov. 20 soft opening, the roving The Kogi Korean BBQ taco truck has emerged as a social networking juggernaut, drawing 300 to 800 people each time it parks (often several times in the same evening) and spawning a burgeoning cyber-hippie movement affectionately referred to as "Kogi kulture."
The Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta is home to a unique and complex network of ecosystems and guards archaeological remains of the Tayrona culture in sites like Pueblito and Ciudad Perdida, with their enigmatic terraces and perfectly designed roads. The indigenous Kogi and Arhuaco people, with their profound cosmic wisdom, still inhabit it.
Residents throughout the Los Angeles area have been in a tweeting frenzy over the Kogi Korean barbecue taco truck. CBS News' Brandon Scott reports on this unique concept.
