Mia Hungry Long Time!

Testing blogging on the go

Okay so I know I’ve been MIA yeah yeah bad blogger I get it. I have hundreds of backed up pictures and I’ll get to them. And oh, I miss you guys too, my sweet cherubs.

Anyways in an attempt to get myself out of the dark ages, I bought myself a fancy little toy: the new iPod touch (4g). While it’s beautiful and sexy and stuff (hd video cam and front facing camera!!!), the regular camera sucks major ballage. So it’s prob won’t replace my trusty laptop for regular posting, but since there’s a wordpress app I figure it’ll be great for blogging on the go! So here’s my first attempt.

I cant caption or embed pics on this thing so they’re all at the end of this post. Anyways the pics are from a few mins ago (OMFG technology!) from my lunch date at Sri Thai, my absolute favorite Thai joint in Hoboken. I went with my impossibly good-looking coworkers, Sarah and Ryan. I got shrimp fried rice, S got fried tofu and duck salad, and R got BBQ beef. Babes, they were delicious!

So there you go. Blogging on the go. I hope this doesn’t look like crap, I can’t preview it for some reason. Sorry for the crappy pictures!

Kisses and garlic breath,


PS: typing on a touchscreen is the suck. You bitches better appreciate!

Black Bear Bar and Grill


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.

Choripan Island!

I work in Hoboken.
And that’s all I got to say about that.
If you have nothin nice to say, don’t say nuthin! That’s how that saying go, right?

Hoboken, albeit very yuppy and absolutely wretched by default because it’s where my office is (come on, no one likes going to work!) (unless you’re food critic?) (i’m kidding again, my office is wonderful, really, i love my job, please don’t fire me, i’m very poor), actually does have some nice things:

– the pretty view of manlessttan (see previous post)
– clean streets
– the fancy daycares with them KinderVans (seriously one of the craziest things i’ve ever seen, though also the cutest! really! it’s like the babies are on a movie studio tour!)
– pretty Jersey people, if you’re into that (ed note: me not so much)
– and oh yes, pretty good restaurant scene!

Actually, let me clarify that. I’ve never been out to theBoken (yes, let’s start calling it that) at night, so I don’t really know what the dinner scene is like. However, lunch is pretty cool. One avenue away from my office is a main strip (Washington?) where they have oh I don’t know, eight million restaurants a block? They’re good and please go during lunch because duh lunch-specials and you might run into me! In which case you will immediately compliment this blog and offer to buy me the most expensive thing on the menu. And it’s not even that expensive, it’s lunch! Read the rest of this entry »
