Yay, Sunday!…Part I

Today might be windy but the sun is out, so there is absolutely no excuse to stay inside!

I set off to Chinatown early in the morning, making stops here and there for tea leaves, dofu fa, and nuoc nam. Breakfast was at Bo Ky on the corner of Mott and Bayard. I keep meaning to try different dishes here, but always end up ordering either the wonton mein or galee gai funn, and today it was the latter, a bounty of slippery ho funn in curry with chicken, eggplant and potatoes.

The afternoon was spent dashing between either ends of the village, a mix of apartment hunting and hat shopping. And with all that walking, one must take a break. Naturally, I headed to the happiest place on earth, Abraço, for a late afternoon black & tan.

I warned myself, at least a dozen times today, that I’d either get a drink or sweet but not both, because I’m starting to edge on chubby, and well, moderation is key, no? However such warning was in vain as I simply could not help myself, caving into the wonderful sirens of ricotta fritters fried to order. Ping pong ball in size, lightly sugar dusted with a crisp shell and soft and sweet steamy innards, just a mild hint of ricotta, and goodness, can you really blame me? ^_^

The best part of the afternoon was hearing Jamie’s cheerful farewell as I left Abraço, “see you later alligator!”

Hope you’re all having a nice Sunday!

    I would’ve gone for it too! I rarely if ever hold back when I eat out. I try to make up for it with the meals I cook at home. But you gotta splurge when you eat out! :)

    No! I totally don’t blame you at all for ordering those ricotta balls – jebus, they sure look GOOD… *wipe drool off cheek* Yes yes moderation is DEFINITELY the key … however, whenever I try to do that, my friend always ended up buying those stuff…n I ended up eating most of them…hahahaha…. talking abt being greedy..AND sometimes comments like “OH, when will you come back here again – EAT!!” totally made me caved in to the temptation….sigh….why do I love food so much …. lol
