Wondee Siam’s Secret Menu

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

I remember back in the day, I was a little afraid of telling people that I met Lon on friendster (kind of like facebook). Meeting people on-line was taboo or just seen as dangerous. True, I did have a stalker once but it was a short-lived incidence and I am now happily married to the […]

Daikon Soup

Sunday, September 26, 2010

Once we hit fall, I start cravings soup. The refreshingly crisp air is not yet fierce and chilling so I’m not thinking hearty rich soups like lobster bisque or beef stew. I want the warmth of a hot liquid so I can cup my hands around the bowl, slurp in that soothing throat feel, and […]

Lunch at JoJo

Wednesday, September 22, 2010

After such a lovely lunch at Jean Georges, I decided try another lunch at another one of his restaurants. This time, it was
JoJo 160 East 64th Street, New York, NY 10021, where I dragged along a different crew, mom and Grandma Olia. If you check his website, you’ll notice that JoJo […]

Sticky Rice with Chinese Sausage, Shitakes, and Dried Shrimp

Friday, September 17, 2010

Did you hear about the ridiculous storm we had in NYC yesterday? It’s still unclear whether it was technically a tornado or just a fierce storm but the damage is horrifying. Large trees were uprooted and many streets are still completely blocked in my parents neighborhood (where we’re staying). I drove by crushed cars and […]

Boy or Girl?

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Any guesses?
We find out the sex of the baby tonight and will definitely update you.
Here’s me on Saturday, at 16 weeks and 1 day. I’m huge right? In my defense, some shirts make me look bigger.

Mushroom Lo Mein

Friday, September 10, 2010

With Labor Day and Rosh Hashana this week, our kitchen renovation has been on hold, although deliveries did come in. I received all of our appliances on Wednesday. I wanted to do a little dance around my 6 burner stove and 12″ grill. The exhaust is massive, like a bathtub! The fridge didn’t fit through […]

Lunch at Jean Georges

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Lately, it’s been hard to enjoy meals the way that I’m used to. Mild nausea is still mild nausea so I haven’t been making many plans to go to restaurants. It feels like a waste of time and money. Still, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity when my dad’s friends were in town. Uncle Richard […]

Mike E: Garlic Knots

Mike came up with some new shapes!

Pork Stuffed Fried Tofu

Saturday, September 4, 2010

We’ve been living at my parent’s house as our kitchen undergoes renovation. Yes, the kitchen re-do is finally under way! While under normal circumstances, I would dread the inconvenience, it just so happens that right now, it’s the best thing for me. If I was my normal, overly busy self I’d be annoyed that my […]
