First day of November!  I will be off to the Cemetery to visit my loved ones who passed away.  I hope it won't be crowded or even rain!

Sunday Weekend Food Tripping!  It's a "green colored" newly opened restaurant that I've been wanting to try for so many times but it's always crowded!  When we found a parking space, we gave it a go right away and see what the people are buzzing about!

  9. that's the resto very near to my house! ^.^

    I celebrated my birthday there last time and it was great except the time I injured my foot when I bumped on a coarse hollow block the homeowner of the big house in front of Asian Twist placed; it was dark and there was no light so I really can't see where I'm going (And the homeowner is my boyfriend's relatives haha 0_0)

    Try their seafood bibimbop, I forgot what it's called but it has a cheese like cream covering the bed of rice topped with shrimps and crabsticks. It's my fave! ^.^

    Wow, I didn't know you were apprehensive with your stint in China.. All along I thought it was just a happy one.. But guess that really makes someone very strong -- tough decisions.
