the end of college came way too fast. i only got to spend a couple of days at home but seriously, i think i ate more in one day than i did all week at school. seriously. the first day, we went to eat all-you-can-eat sushi buffet at Minado. anything that combines “all you can eat” and “sushi” spells awesomeness. but let’s just say, i wore some pretty tight jeans, which may not have been the smartest choice.
plate one: sushi assortment, oyster, squid salad, one piece of broccoli tempura
i was really excited that my sister decided to come home this weekend!! it was fun to just catch up and talk about a lot of things. i feel really lucky sometimes to have an older sister who has gone through a lot of things that i have already gone through. with all the stress that came along with freshman year, it was nice to talk to somebody who had been through basically the same experience, just at a different school.
plate two: more oysters, more sushi, KINGG crab legs
i spy my dad’s chopsticks sneaking into the picture stealing my piece of mango sushi! my sister told me that oysters were really good so i decided to give them a try. they’re kind of weird… you basically just slurp up this raw piece of seafood. so bizarre. but actually, surprisingly good. except i don’t think i could eat more than three at one sitting. apparently they’re also really high in cholesterol. great. guess i’ll have to start eating cheerios to lower mine…
plate three: japanese eggplant, miso soup, squid skewer, dimsum, fried rice, spicy tuna roll
by this time, i really didn’t think i could eat any more…but of course, i did. ah. such a problem. but the food was way too good. mmmm. spicy tuna rolls are my favorite. and then add on tons of pineapple and a cream puff to this, i have to say that i had a VERY filling meal.
i wish i would be able to spend more time at home before leaving for china. since my sister was home, we had a late birthday/mother’s day celebration with the entire family. as usual, we had the asian sponge cake from chinatown that is SO GOOD. omg. yum. i think i ate three slices in just one day. ahh
i want to stay home and eat more yummy foooood!! and just rest. but now, i’m sitting at the san fran airport waiting for my flight to beijing! i’m pretty excited to go abroad again and see what there is in store. but at the same time, i feel kind of rushed going right from school to china. we’ll see what happens!! hopefully the internet in china isn’t too crappy…
