    EDIT:

    @Mot Buchanan made him a FF balloon hat at PAX a few years ago. Anyway I made this gif of it:

    I asked him if he had seen it. I'm sure he said he liked it. >_>

    Khoo used to show up to Seattle forumer meets. Also one time he came on here and asked for brownies and by goodness, he got fresh brownies delivered (it wasn't me)

    wasn't that Jordyn who rocked that out?

    I was visiting my brother near San Francisco. Khoo was in San Francisco. There was a meetup scheduled at a hot dog place. I figured out the train system and headed over. Excited for the trip, I uploaded pictures to facebook calling it the "San Francisco Sausage Excursion". I got to the place early and waited for people to arrive. I sat there for about an hour or two, asking random people if they were here for the meet up. I gave up, went to a nearby bakery and bought a pie to bring home to my brother and his wife.

    Later I found out I was at the right name, wrong location. And my brother's wife wondered why I asked directions for and spent all night in the gay district. They didn't eat any of the pie.

    Also, one time at PAX East, I saw Khoo without a suit on. Super rare sight for me! So I asked for a picture~

    They don't live in San Francisco so there's a multitude of reasons why she would say that to me. Maybe she was messing with me who knows?

    Khoo met my mom at comic-con 07 I think. They talked about how she thought Penny-arcade and my membership in the community influenced me, since I had been posting since I was 13. It was pretty cool to see how much he cared about the impact the community was having.

    Also there was that one time he got me and @fightinfilipino in to the VIP seating area for Acquisitions Inc at pax 09? We showed up about an hour before the panel started and a kilted enforcer told us we were too late and made some flippant remarks before laughing at us when we asked him if there was any way for us to squeeze in. Then Fightinfilipino was like, "Maybe I should call Khoo?" and I was like, "Do you think he'd hook it up? That seems like a big ask" and the enforcer laughed at us and was like "HAHAHA these guys say they know Khoo!"

    So we called, and Khoo didn't pick up cause Khoo is busy. Then like the divine force that only Khoo seems to posses, he walked past us as we were headed out the building, super bummed out and as soon as he saw us said, "You two, follow me". We got back to our enforcer pal who tried to kind of cut us off and Khoo just sharply said "They're with me".

    If i could bottle the look of shock and disdain on this enforcers face and sell it, we would probably have a new type of table salt.

    Then he tossed us in line with @Whippy and we hung out and played some magic with the cruddy premade decks and enjoyed the show.

    Thanks again @Robert Khoo You're pretty much the closest I've ever come to meeting a real life super hero, but in an oddly "Just better than most other humans on the planet" kind of way.

    remember: don't tell anyone how we had to recompense Khoo later. i'm preeeeetty sure the statute of limitations is almost up.

    My clearest memory of Khoo is him showing up for a Pax-Prime forum photo and doing his work assembling it & such before just being taken back by what I was wearing.

    I had a blue crop-top, blue women's business pants and my mid-drift was out & about.

    And he just looked me over and exclaimed, "Jesus Christ..."

    That is my Robert Khoo story.

    Gonna miss you Senpai.

    The thing is, I feel like if someone knows anything about who you are, and they know anything about who Khoo is, and they were told that there was a story wherein the two of you meet, they could probably fill in the blanks and deduce this entire story just from those bread crumbs.

    Will Khoo be getting a Lucky Lemur or a Red Panda? I mean, he doesn't have a job yet that we know of, but he kinda lived the dream, yeah?

    I never spoke to Khoo during the PAX East pics I've been in, but I remember he suggested we all get pulled pork sandwiches for the first one I was at.

    So on top of everything else, I have him to thank for an awesome lunch decision.

    I met Khoo in LA. There was bruncheon in a little indie, sort of rockabillie diner. I believe I had the huevos rancheros. They were tremendous.

    When I arrived at the address, along with upwards of a dozen forumers, we discovered that Robert had obtained an old, somewhat weather-worn plastic garden gnome (it looked rather like a cheap Christmas decoration to me). Robert introduced the gnome/elf/sort-of-green-condom-looking... ornament... as " Harold". Harold sat, as I recall, on the long cushioned bench as an equal member of the attendees of this impromptu, downtown Los Angeles bruncheon, though he occassionally sat up on the table, close at Robert's left hand. Not much more was said about Harold, other than Robert would be taking Harold away from all this and returning with him to the parts north from which he hailed.

    I can only assume they live together, happily wed by common law if naught else, to this very day.

    Thank you for a very delicious bruncheon, Robert, and take good care of Harold.
