They did it with Wang! I’m so happy. Now if they could just win the division, I’d be so happy. Too bad I didn’t get picked in the post-season lottery. I don’t think I’d be able to watch the games at the stadium, I’d get too stressed out. My parents and I went to Mitsuwa Marketplace for lunch. Here are some pictures of my wonderful food!
I went home yesterday to celebrate my grandpa’s 89th birthday. I am glad I went home because it was only my parents, grandma, grandpa and myself. My uncle and his family couldn’t make it because of his work. My younger sister was at school and my older sister was at a fashion show. Anyway, we went to our favorite Japanese restaurant in Long Island, Hokkaido. We know the owners there so they always do a set menu for us. It’s usually pretty good, but I don’t really eat too much sushi/sashimi, so I just end up getting Tempura Udon and have all the appetizers. It was as delicious meal. I had edamame, seaweed salad, Chilean sea bass (I think?), some sort of eel roll, miso soup, tempura udon, sweet potato tempura (MMM!), etc. I can’t even remember everything I ate because there was so much food.
During the whole dinner, my grandpa kept asking about whether he’ll be having “bing” tonight. Bing’s literal translation is cookie. He has quite a big sweet tooth and it’s only gotten worse since he’s gotten older. Whenever he visits us at home, we have to hide all cookies/crackers from him. It’s a pretty bad habit. Anyway, my mom reassured him that he’d get his treat tonight. So at the end of the meal, they came out with the BIGGEST sundae. I was able to capture his happy face.
After dinner, he was able to sneak a few of the peppermint candies. He was one happy camper.
Do not go to a comedy club that has a $20 cover and a $20 drink minimum. I had the most expensive Sprite ever! Oh yes, and the Puerto Rican comedian had a field day with me.
Comedian: What kind of Asian are you?
Comedian: I dated a Taiwanese girl before. She NEVER wanted to called Chinese.
He did a whole thing about Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and the House of Flying Daggers. Saying that my roomie and I would wait for him after the show and do some kung fu on him. Sooo funny right? Oh he asked my name, but I thought maybe he was talking to the Indian lady next to me (she answered when he asked me what kind of Asian I was). So I said, “Oh Teresa?” Then he said, “You don’t even know your name?!”
What-EVER. I paid $40, LEAVE ME ALONE.
I’m going to a Yankees game tomorrow (actually today). I can’t wait. It’ll be the third time I’m seeing Andy Pettitte. He better win; the yankees need it.
