Fenway Park. August 19, 2014.
First game of the season that I’ve been to this year. It was a good to see my family again for the an end-of-summer kind of thing, and especially my cousin for the last time before she leaves for college.
Rosa Mexicano. August 1, 2013.
This photo is of Rosa Mexicano’s, “Costilla de Res/Beef Short Rib” dish. It was delicious. It’s filled with crema, cilantro, onion, and cheese.

Bibm. June 28, 2014.
I just realized that I haven’t posted anything since my trip in Asia. So here’s a photo of 랭면 (naengmyeon) that I had from Bibim. I love eating this in the summer. So tasty. ^-^
Day 12: Hong Kong. May 28, 2014.
I don’t want to leave… I mean I do want to go home, but I don’t want to leave my family.
Today will be my last day in Hong Kong. Tomorrow morning I’ll be flying back to the states. Despite the heat, the humidity, and the misquitoes, I wish there was a way I could stay for just a few more weeks. It’s really hard only seeing your family every couple of years. This trip especially, since I only saw them for a week.
I love you, fam. I hope to see you again soon.
Day 10 & 11: Hong Kong. May 26 - 27, 2014.
Basically both the 26th and the 27th were spent with both sides of the family. On the 26th, I had dinner with my dad’s side of the family. On the 27th, I spent the day at Ocean Park (it also happened to be my aunt’s birthday) and had dinner with mom’s side of the family at night.
Tomorrow will be my last full day in Hong Kong. A little sad to leave everyone. This trip flew by so fast, two weeks is just not enough time.
Well, off to bed now. Will update once more tomorrow.
Day 9: Hong Kong. May 25, 2014.
Food day again.
For breakfast I had congee with liver and fish and a side of rice noodles.
Then had a redbean rice flour pancake snack thingy.
After that we stopped by the Avenue of Stars to visit my buddy, Mcdull.
Then we made our way over to a veggie snack stand to eat this assortment of tofu deliciousness.
We figured we should stop eating for a while so we went to visit my uncle to watch people play soccer again. The crowd was huge, the stands were filled and people were surrounding the field (well turf in this case).
For dinner we went to a Korean restaurant with the strangest Korean food I’ve ever had. It was actually decent though, even if it wasn’t the typical menu.
So hot, so tired. It’s been over 90 degrees every day. Thank God for malls with AC.
Day 7 & 8: Hong Kong. May 23 - 24, 2014
May 23 highlights…
Had dim sum for breakfast. Then ate at a dessert place that was popular for its durian pancake (puke). I had a watermelon tapioca dessert instead. Walked and shopped for a while. Watched my uncle play in his soccer tournament (with this adorable 70+ year old man). Then had an all you can eat hot pot dinner with mom’s side of the family for only $15 bucks each, what a steal!
May 24 highlights…
Spent all day with cousin. Realized that if I don’t have coffee for one day, I’ll have a pounding headache the next morning. Immediately got coffee and milk tea. Had crab soup ramen for lunch. Then had a whole bunch of snacks (peanut butter toast, matcha green tea and milk ice cream, and this green tea custard thingy). Visited a mall in Tsim Sha Tsui that had a Studio Ghibli store. After that we had dinner at Din Tai Fung (FINALLY).
That’s about it. Also, notice that the first picture is of a Colgate truck selling ice cream…
Day 6: Hong Kong. May 22, 2014.
I left for Hong Kong today. A little disappointed to have to say goodbye to Korea, but happy to see my family again. My cousin, uncle and two aunts came to pick me up at the airport. I’ve missed them so much, having only seen them for less than 10 trips in my life.
When I arrived, we went back to the house to drop off my luggage and then got my first meal of the day. I had noodle soup with fishballs and wontons.
Then I stopped by a bakery to get these tapioca-mochi cheese and chocolate ball bread thingys… I swear it’s better than I’m making it sound.
After that we ran some errands and I got my second coffee of the day. Terrible caffine addiction.
Then went to meet up with my aunt’s family to grab dinner.
Now I’m exhausted and it’s only 11:30.
