Mia Hungry Long Time!

So I have just gotten approved for a one month leave of absence by my company for a home visit this summer. That’s right, one whole month! To say that I am ecstatic is a complete understatement. It’s been seven years since I’ve been home and dudes, it is time. I miss my mom, my dad, my three brothers, and my sister. I miss Jakarta, and most of all, I miss the food.

Anyways, in preparation of this visit home, I need to lose ten pounds! Yes, I am aware that I am (kinda) thin and I don’t necessarily need (or want!) to lose weight. However, due to the omgdeliciousness of Indonesian food, I know I’m going to be eating like damn heffer for every second of every day that I am there. So, to anticipate the inevitable weight gain (at an estimated ten pounds haha), I need to lose that weight so when I come back to good ol’ NYC I will at least look the same.

I’m going home in July, four months from now. Considering that I am lazy and just ridiculously weak-willed when it comes to dieting, I figured it will take me about three months to do this (at the superhuman pace of three pounds lost a month).SOOOOOoooo, that leaves me about a month to eat whatever I want. I started this wonderful fat-filled 30 days by eating a gigantic lunch at the Black Bear in Hoboken.

Greasy Sexy in New Jersey – Tun Tavern

One weekend last month, my friends and I went to Atlantic City for a little road trip. I was craving a relaxing, serene vacation weekend where I can drink like an idiot and lose money at blackjack tables, so naturally AC came to mind.

I’ve been to AC once, seven years ago, with my boyfriend at the time and some friends. We went for just one night, stayed up the entire time, just to gamble gamble gamble. I barely remember it because I was so sloshed. Hey, I was at a tender age of 22, I don’t have to justify my actions!

Anyways, this time, as a mature 29 year old working lady, I decided to class it up a little and stay at the Trump Plaza hotel where every single thing was gold, gold, gold. Seriously, chandeliers, carpets, bed furnishings, curtains, chair cushions, dresses on drunk ass Jersey girls, GOLD. It was incredible. I felt so classy. Not.

I had a really good time. I did lose $125 at the blackjack tables though, but I expected that. I’m a very unlucky gambler. That’s why I only do it once every seven years.

Anyways, on the Saturday we were there, we woke up hungover, craving beers and greasy food. My friend Ryan suggested we go to Tun Tavern, a brewery slash restaurant. So off we go.
