Hi y’all! How’s 2010 treatin’ you so far?
Mine kind of blows so far, actually, it’s been insanely sucky, but I’ll whine to you in a separate post. This post will solely be dedicated to the anniversary of another year’s past since my parents did the dirty and made little ol’ me! Aka: my birthday!
I turned 29 last month. 29? What? That’s insane! You look like a baby! Thank you, I know. Thank you God for making me Asian. PS: I feel like I talk about being Asian so much in this blog. But I AM one, and hey I got Asian Pride! Asian Asian Asian Asian Asian x 100000
Sorry about that.
Anyways, this year I decided to not have a raging party to celebrate the burfday. I had a bangin party last year, and to be honest, 29 isn’t really like a magical uber important milestone anyways. Next year though, watch out. I’m going all out. Crystal, coke, and hookers. Y’all invited.
So this year I decided to have a little soiree at one of my favorite brunch spots in BK: Sette Enoteca.

It was one of those days. I woke up with an insatiable craving for steamed meat in baskets. Dim sum, babes!
I love, love, luuuurrrrrvvee (imagine me purring here) dim sum! We Asians prefer the savory stuff for breakfast to those sweet syrup-drenched dishes you Emricans eat. Pancakes and french toasts? Yes, they can be absolutely delicious and I certainly have fond memories of eating them (Usually made by dangerously sexy breakfast companions, meow!) (Note: this really only happened twice, but I wanted to seem in-demand, rawr!), but I’d take dim sum any day.
This particular day, I woke up STARVING. I grabbed a friend and off we went to the closest place to my apartment that would have an authentic dim sum experience: Brooklyn’s Chinatown.
See, not many people are aware of this adoraballs little ‘hood in the Borough Park. When people think Chinatown, they think Manhattan. While the Manhattan one is huge and densely packed with every imaginable Asian restaurant, the Brooklyn one has one clear advantage: it’s closer to my house.

So I went to a birthday party Saturday night and had a few too many beers (do you know that a Jameson and a beer cost fifteen bucks at a dive in the LES? Yeah, neither do I! GRRR!) (Guess I’m spoiled by Brooklyn, where a drink costs nothing more than a fiver and a smile).
After a few hours of fun, falling asleep on the train, missing my stop and ending up a stop from Coney Island, I went home and passed the heellss out. I woke up a few hours later, hungry and hungover. Lucky me, it was Sunday, and Sunday means BRUNCH! Read the rest of this entry »

So it is very difficult to write a blog post while you are anticipating a new episode of LOST.
Yes, I am a fan of the show.
By a fan I mean a super fan.
By a super fan I mean I am completely, ridiculously, Facebook-friend-of-a-few-fictional-characters-from-the-show obsessed.
But no worries, I am also a super fan of good Thai food.
Forget that, only GREAT Thai food.
Dudes, when you live in NYC, ethnic food is EVERYWHERE. And there are loads of good ones. Good Thai food is a dime in a dozen (read: Park Slope & Carroll Gardens). But great Thai? Mm.. just like finding a cute, smart, non-commitment-phobe dude in NY, it is very rare. Read the rest of this entry »
