Regina and I went to Dan Chun’s BBQ in Brooklyn Heights, near DUMBO (down-under-the Manhattan-bridge-overpass). It was also close to the waterfalls.
We also met up with Sarah and Jess to eat spicy thai food. Check out fattypepper for additional pictures and info.
Reg and I had lunch with dad today. The NJ transit train was delayed so we snapped a few pics before he arrived.
Like the gates art project in central park, the waterfalls project is another creative piece. There are four waterfalls positioned beside the Manhattan bridge, under the Brooklyn bridge, near the Brooklyn Navy Yards, and in front of Governor’s Island. Pretty cool looking and worth a trip to the South Street Seaport to see. There’s even a bike route to get a good look at the falls.
Because the Cyclone is scheduled to close down and Regina had never ridden it, we decided go to Coney Island one afternoon. The Cyclone is definitely in my top 5 best roller coasters i’ve ever been on.
(Reg and I shared the picture duties)
Regina began a food blog last week. Check it out!
I thought i’d throw it out there for the 1 or 2 people that visit here.
In other web surfing news, i found this link from doobybrain. It’s a collection of vintage NYC photos mainly from around the 1930′s. It’s kinda weird seeing what familiar places looked like way back when.
Regina and I moved the piano into our new apartment. (We didn’t physcially move it, but hired people who did) Elaine, Regina’s old roommate, had been gracious to keep the piano in her apartment until we had time/resources to move it. With the addition of the piano, we can offically call our home an asian one. =P
The piano was a gift from a friend of ours who recently got married and moved to San Francisco. He didn’t want to take it with him so he gave it to Regina and me. Thanks Taylor Harris!
“Chopsticks” here we come! (Regina can actually play the piano)
Thanks to Jenn Buell for sharing!
A short film by Blu: an ambiguous animation painted on public walls.
Made in Buenos Aires and in Baden
I especially like how the “characters” interact with its surroundings. Wall art is a pretty big thing in Argentina. Enjoy!
I got these for my birthday from Regina.
I’ve been using them for about 3 weeks now and I can honestly give my thumbs up to them. They are much easier on my wrists. There’s a $20 version and a $40 version. The more expensive one is better made.
About a month ago, Regina and I saw the movie Spanglish. It’s an atypical yet very entertaining Sandler movie. Anyhow, there is a scene in the movie, right before he and Flor have their big argument, where he makes a sandwich. Reg shouted, “that’s a sandwich by Thomas Keller!” He is the owner/head chef at a few famous restaurants, namely “French Laundry” – 3 Michelin stars. According to food bloggies, the sandwich is arguably the world’s greatest sandwich.
We attempted it for lunch today. We used french bread instead of the country loaf. Also, the egg yolk is supposed to runny, not solid. It’s supposed to make a difference if its runny. Anyway, it’s pretty much a BLT sandwich with a sunnyside egg, but nevertheless, it was pretty tasty. Here’s the recipe. And for you food and winers … recipe.
*edit – we tried it again for dinner. This time, the egg yolk was running all over the sandwich. Yum.
**edit – third times a charm. I think we nailed it!
Talking about lettuce, it reminded me of this SNL short. It always makes me laugh.
Reg ran a 10k in Central Park. Along with Regina, Tricia Lee and the 2008 Olympic marathon team were some notables.
Afterwards Jaymin, Regina, and I trekked to Madison Sq. Park to meet Betsey and friends for the annual Big Apple BBQ. The salt lick and sausage were pretty tasty.
I met Rachel on a summer project in Wildwood 2004. She’s a cool chic.
