whats going on?

saw this in union sq:

then found this online:


Drew and his Concentrated Yeast Extract.

What I'm Watching

Junebug- Amy Adams is awesome.
Hard Candy- Ellen Page can kinda play a serious role.
Totoro- I like the japanese version better.
500 Days of Summer- creepy.
Mary Poppins- Dancing penguins and Dick Van Dyke makes me happy
6 Feet Under Season 1&2 - AWESOME.
The Squid and The Whale- not good.
Where the Wild Things Are- Karen O. is great.
Zombieland- hahahahahahahahahhaah

Someone needs to catch up with Fringe. I have no one to talk to about it and I do not want to start posting on forums.

The Office marriage episode was epic. so. epic.

a banana shaped cracker and white plums that look green

yumi brought back some awesome banana crisps from Japan. I immediately took a picture of it before it got crushed in to pieces in my bag. Devoured it soon after. yum!

These actually looked white when i bought them. Now they look green. The skin is really sour but the flesh tastes almost exactly like a regular plum.

Ignore Everybody

Thanks to Eric & Gary who got this book for me just as I was running out of things to read


I love making the trek down to Ikea & Fairway at Red Hook. The water taxi use to be free, but now they charge $5. You can credit it back if you spend $10 or more at Ikea. I usually eat it away. Totally worth it! The ride back at night is amazing and really fun if you're on the roof.

I must admit the star is definitely Fairway.

i say cool beans a lot. but i mean it this time.

Stuffed by Patricia Volk

I've always wished i grew up in a restaurant family. (It almost happened.) And this book reinforces the reason why. love it!

Randomly picked up this book and didn't realize it was of the self-help genre. I just liked the cover but the content is actually pretty interesting and kinda funny.

Here's a piece from the book:
"Remove shoes whenever possible"
"...One of the best natural massages you can give your long suffering feet is to walk barefoot through grass. Here you'll find nonaddictive mood stabilizer called "herbacinium". Since each foot has a thousand itty-bitty fibrous nerve endings, soaking the herbacinium through your balls, heals and toes and into the blood-stream can lower your heart rate by up to 14%.."

other things in life

Today I was at Union Square and met a man who dropped me enough wisdom to fill a book with. It's funny how you randomly meet amazing people!

Parks are my new favorite places to chill.

Work is unpredictable and awesome.

I think I've seen this video at least twice every day since monday:

so much to tell

Well well, what an adventure i've been through this summer. I'm still in the middle of it, but i think i need some breathing room to blog a bit.

first of all, for my own sake; this is a list of movies i'd like to watch specifically in the indie romance genre:
New York, I Love You (oct 29)
Adam (july 29)
Paper Heart (aug 14)
500 Days of Summer (now playing)

And i must see Shanghai, which comes out Sept 4 simply because my grandparents are shanghainese and i've grown up in a household listening to classic shanghainese music, eating shanghainese cuisine and watching shanghainese movies. Besides, old Shanghai is simply magical!

Lots of props to Nolan, who told me about all these great films.

I've recently seen the screening for The September Issue at JWT, which was pretty great as well. Especially when it's in the middle of the work day and you're lounging on the couches with delicious pastries and great people. I love my job!

2 things i like today

SUPER AWESOME AIRGONOMIC POTATO MASHER! my aunt Emman got this for me and I CAN'T WAIT TO MAKE MASHED POTATOES! love the pretty base! check out other products they make here

HAPPY HIPPO!!! chocolate & cream inside, wafer nutty goodness outside. this is my 2nd time buying these, and i love em. pretty pricey for a pack of 5. (4.60) but it's adorable and deelicious!

Basil Seeds?

this is the most disturbing bowl of goodness ever. it tastes exactly like how it looks except better and it's supposed to be very kind to your digestive health. Someone told me they were basil seeds, but she wasn't sure. yum!

I would like to try a Fat Pig.

i wonder why the generic animal noise for a pig is oink. pigs don't really oink. they snort. so if someone is laughing and they snort, are they oinking?
