Tea time with Brian Chau

Brian Chau, junior, is known for his quiet and sweet personality. Whether it be at the math center or on the tennis team, he is hardworking and always willing to help. I got the chance to sit down with Chau to learn more about him over a cup of tea. 


If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I would want to go to Britain. It makes it easier so that I don’t have to try to learn a new language and I like hearing British accents. From AP art history, I’ve learned a little about the architecture so it would also be interesting to see all of the cathedrals and castles in person.


What have you been watching lately?

All right. Well recently there’s just YouTube channel I’ve been into called bone appetit. It’s basically a channel that contains a lot of different types of food related shows. The two that I mainly watch are “it’s alive with brad” and “gourmet makes” with Claire. “Gourmet makes” is the host, Claire, trying to recreate candy from scratch while also using more natural ingredients.


If you could compare yourself to any animal, what would it be and why? 

I would compare myself to a turtle. One reason is because of my work pace. Although it’s slow, I can usually get work done. Although turtles are known to be slow, they can run pretty fast if they want to. This also parallels my pace. If I happen to procrastinate and have to do a lot of work in a short amount of time, then I can somehow manage in the end.


Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or 100 duck-sized horses?

I don’t know. I guess one horse sized duck. Because ducks aren’t as intimidating. If it’s a goose, then yeah, I choose the other one. But ducks, they’re fine.


What activities are you involved in outside of school? 

For an actual activity I guess tennis, because I am on the tennis team and I do enjoy it. Other than school, I am also interested in medicine. So I decided to apply to Los Robles hospital as a volunteer. This way, I can both help people and get experience in the medical field. I’m not sure what specific job I want to be in the future, so I think that volunteering for the hospital would help me narrow my decision. 


What is your favorite restaurant? 

My favorite restaurant would be Capital Seafood which I think is in Monterey Park. When I was little, my family would visit my aunts in Orange County at least once a month. We would usually go there to eat dinner for any special occasion, like a party or New Years. It’s just a nostalgic and comforting place for me. One dish I really liked and I can’t find in other Chinese restaurants is their house special fillet fish. They cover it in some kind of batter and fry it so that the outside is crunchy and the inside is soft.
