• The annual beef burger run

    So I trekked down to McD’s one fine day to catch their Prosperity Burger which, if you didn’t already know, is offered only once a year around Chinese New Year and for one month only. Hence this my once-a-year trip to McD’s and the only time in the year you’ll find me eating beef.

    After running some errands, a friend and I went to have rice noodles in spicy soup. I’d eaten there before and found their noodles to be pretty tasty. While I like that this soup comes piping hot,…

    Movin’ on up

    For the most part, my lunches are boring and repetitive. I pretty much eat the same old thing every day when I’m home. What’s worst is that I don’t even mind it 😛 . It’s only on…

    Not too long after this pasta escapade of mine, I wanted to go back for a second round. But as luck would have it, it was no longer on their promo menu, oh well! Right so if…

    Don’t gimme that pancake face

    My car radio is almost never on. In the years my minivan was mom’s taxi, I had it off for fear of my impressionable passengers picking up mispronunciations. And even now when I’m driving alone, I have…
