Regina and I frequent Corner 28 whenever we’re in Flushing. Where else can you get a single serving, bao and all, of peiking duck for $1 (formerly 75 cents not just a year ago). They also have the classic “4 items for $4.95″ plus soup and rice. Pretty good deal for the money. Enjoy the photos!
A while back ago www.gebond.com recommended a web based slideshow creator that he used for a friend’s wedding. I haven’t really tooled around with it until now. I think it’d be really useful for conference promo’s and slideshows. Anyway, here is a sample of the free 30 seconds of show animoto lets you create. This short took me less than five minutes to create.

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.
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.
Regina cooked an awesome meal for my birthday. Sage pork chops in pan reduction with fried corn bread, with a side of swiss chard and apple smoked bacon. She also made a New York style cheesecake with a lemon lime infusion. I have no idea what most of that meant, but it tasted great. Thanks babe!
