oh there's a hummingbird singing

oh there's a hummingbird singing, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

this morning, i went out to clip some branches and this cute little hummer buzzed around me the whole time clicking away. I've never heard them make any noises but they click their beaks. I walked back inside after a few minutes and decided to come back out w/ the camera to see if it was still around. He was! So I took a few pics and I think he got the clue that I wasn't going to give him any nectar and he probably thought, "What?! I waited around for this!? A photo-op!" See ya and he flew away!

merry xmas everyone! :)

fun with photos

i received an email from a guy in france and i've no clue what he's written. it had something to do with my flickr photos. so how ingenious is it that i found a french-english translator on the net? His letter said that he found my photos to be a wonder and proposed an exchange of work. How cool is that?! So I wrote back to him and used the english to french translator.

Have a happy christmas eve!

made reservations online, how cool is that?

The hostess was an idiot but the staff and food was good.
my frutti de mare was a nice surprise with the addition of creamy polenta at the base.

dessert was good but nothing i haven't had before.

Love Actually

This has to be one of my top 10 movies of all times. If you haven't seen it, do yourself a service and netflix it, buy it, download it, just watch it. I want to buy this DVD! I went to Blockbuster to rent it but they didn't even have it. So I went to On Demand and they had it ! So I'm now lounging back and gonna watch it a few times :)

and thanks to youtube....this is my favorite scene.

red mango

red mango, originally uploaded by awungfoo.
of course, I was in the mall taking pictures and the girl behind the counter says to me..sorry we don't allow photographers or something of that sort. It's not like I haven't seen photos of their store and inside on Flickr and everywhere else. Like helloooo...there's 2 yogurt machines and a counter with toppings....

The yougurt was actually good and the toppings very fresh. The mango sucks because it's NOT ripe and you just can't beat fresh tree ripen mango from Hawaii.

Besides being told that I couldn't take photos (HELLO get a clue, I take pics in restaurants all the time!) and this location is flanked by glass on 2 sides so you can see in! Whatever!

Where was I? Oh the yougurt. The small size was actually pretty big and i think they charge per topping.

we met up with our friends Minh and Nghuy (i can't remember her name) NEW eeeee....anyway. We met them at Blue C Sushi after we already ate and they gave us 2 iPod Shuffles. I already have an iPod and Neil really wanted the iPod Nano in Blue so we exchanged the 2 for 1.

This is Neil's first apple product. I hope he loves it. I gotta admit that the nano is coool for it's size. You just want to get it in every color! :)

12 days of christmas

12 days of christmas, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

it's a hit or miss. if it's fresh, it's really good. I really like the bite size ones. Barney's had them at their counter a week ago when we went there to check things out. On a side note, I was surprised to see almost the entire store on sale. Crazy. I've never been impressed with the staff at Barney's (seattle). NYC yes, Seattle, no.

bitter melon with pork in black bean chili sauce

for tonight's meal. Black bean bitter melon with pork. Neil marinated the pork in some sesame seed something so the flavor was a bit off but still good. Neil picked up the bamboo shoots and I haven't had those in years! They're sooo good on rice!

I never get tired of pansies. They bloom in the spring, summer, fall, and winter. little johnny jump ups are the smaller versions or viola. The bigger ones are pansies.

Old country buffet w/ teri and tanner. The fried chicken was good and crunchy. Everything else was not so good. The coconut cupcake was extremely moist and chocolately. yum yum.

ps i love you

ps i love you, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

I'm reading Atonement and PS I love You. Both are made into movies and I'm hoping that they are both as good as the book.

In case you haven't noticed, I'm a big diptych fan. Diptychs are 2 photos spliced together and Flickr has some really cool ones. I really like the ones that depict sayings like "head over heels" "time after time" get the idea.

This past winter storm is doing some damage to retailers. No one is going out and a lot of people can't get to their destination and people are staying in. A lot has to do with the stupid media which hypes everything up and uses scare tactics to increase their viewership. They don't care what it does to the rest of us.

Do your part and go out and support the economy!

taj palace

taj palace, originally uploaded by awungfoo.

For a buffet, I have to say that I was impressed at the quality of the food. fresh, delicious, creamy, spicy, and the naan is made fresh and brought to the table. The vegetarian aloo gobi was soooo good.

It's Dec 1st, and it started to snow. It was snowing pretty hard this morning and then it stopped. We had lunch w/ Teri & Tanner @ Taj Palace. Really good for a buffet.

Stopped by Circuit City and then it started to snow again. It's been a few hours and it's still snowing...

Happy December everyone!
