crossing over east river

went to the gym last saturday. talk about getting fat, when i was done, i felt like having a bowl of fried noodles in chinatown. i just burned few calories but was just about to add couple hundred more. nonetheless, i went for it and had the best greasy, choked with overcooked vegetable bowl of fried noodles. was just about to get into subway to go home when i saw williamsburg bridge and decided to burn off the fried noodles by crossing over the east river on foot.
entrance to the walkway.

things you see in new york city street

saw this display at the entrance to the subway at the corner of delancey and essex street today. i called the number but only got the voice box. sounds like someone made up the company just for the fun of it.

cooking practice for thankgiving

its that time of the year again. time to wipe off the dust and fire up the oven. cooked pork tenderloin in the oven for the first time in my life. seriously. it came out better than i thought. note the chopped potatoes and zuchini underneath the meat. thinking about roasting them while cooking the meat. that didn't come out good. need to cut it in bigger chunks and let it stay longer in the oven.


spanish food

bought dinner from jackson heights the other day. looks yummy until you see the pigs feet. quite delicious but its a plate filled of killer fats.


Wellington Edward...

I was with you back then in Syracuse and Boston, and you were always there for me all the way to Malaysia. I am so so sorry that I was not there for you the day when It was my turn to be there for you.

Rest in Peace.
