Stream of Consciousness Sunday: A Break from Midterms Hoohah

 I have been fairly busy with school and work, and sometimes I wonder how I actually pull it off. I have managed to shun out most of my social engagements because I didn't go back to school to slack. In fact, this second bachelor's degree had unleashed my inner nerd. Hah!

Of course there is food involved, and it was great that Fadra came to town. Yes, Fadra! (because you know, i wont be SOCing if it wasn't for her blog. We had porkbuns, pork stuffed chicken wings and ramen at Ippudo.

Hirata Buns with Pork Belly

Ippudo Teba Gyoza - Chicken wings stuffed with ground pork and
vegetables. Deep fried and served with vinegar shoyu sauce.

Inside the Teba Gyoza

Karaka Miso Ramen - the soup tastes of ginger and kimchi. Soo good.

Akamaru Modern - My fave bowl. I cant get enough of this. 
Fadra, Me, Rachel and Jessica

When the weekend rolled around, I made it a point to get to Grub Street at the Hester Street Fair Festival. I spent last summer trolling around Smorgasburg, Meatopia and Pig Island. I've been missing a few due to school and since I was convinced by Rachel that I had to have the Shaved Ice Shop because she has been obsessing about it, I just had to go.

Stuff I ate...

Fried Anchovies from Bon Chovie 
Adobo Pork Ribs from Purple Yam (Filipino Food YAY!)

Shaved Ice from the Shaved Ice Shop
 happy portraits of my friends. Never underestimate the power of a bowl of shave ice.

There are other photos that didnt make it into this entry, but you get my drift. Great food and friends make me happy and keep me sane from my crazy schedule.
