20 Bottles of Booze...

I guess you know you have bought too much over the years (or not drinking fast enough) when you can't fit all your bottles in one box.

In box currently:
  • 12 bottles of spirits
  • 3 bottles of wine
Still to pack:
  • 4 bottles of spirits
  • 3 bottles of wine
Combined with the stash lil friend has (currently guarded by the whaleshark)... that's a whole lot of house warming fun.

Net: No more buying from duty from now on!

Bus Adventure

Returned rental car this morning and so would be busing home from work.

It was fun! :).  20 minute bus ride, takes me basically door to door... Why didn't I know about this earlier!

Result: Success (of course)

Soooo smark!  Congrats! :)

Aman's B'day

After some cleaning and eating around the area, headed over to dinner at Root Table.  Very interesting place, lots of trees… lol.

After dinner, chilled on the rooftop of Dancing Beast, and drank some whiskey, then called it a night.

Happy b'day Aman!

Rest In Peace - Max :(

After 2 weeks of the car sitting there, and a week worth of phone calls asking what happened.  I spend an hour with different people trying to understand why this is taking so long. 

After a few calls, finally, I get the RIP phone call.  They have decided that the damages make the car totaled, and won't be sending the person out to reassess a 3rd time.  

RIP Max...

Ceremonial Key Exchange Ceremony

Since my agent was out of town on Friday, today we met up for a ceremonial key exchange :). He brought a 6 pack and a champagne, and we used the bottle opener that came with the house to open the beers. Great agent. Highly recommended. No hassle, not pushy, quick response - took care of a lot of the nitty gritty stuff. Much different than the first one I had.

New lil dragon dumpling contender!

At Crossroads there is a relatively new place (Dough Zone) that appeared, today I tried it. It looks authentic - no A/C, all Asians making the dumpling and waiting the tables. Net: We have a new lil dragon dumpling contender in the Seattle area! 2 DTFs, and now this place.

Kukai Ramen Challenge

The deal is this - if you can finish 4 bowls of Ramen (soup included), then it is free.  Should you fail, you pay $30.

A bowl of ramen costs $12, and so I thought, 1 bowl is too little, and I am a bit hungry today… so as long as I eat 3 ramen's worth, then I would break even :).  Challenge accepted!

It was pretty fun, they yell out 'Ramen Challenge' and people came up and gave me encouragement… lol.

Ultimately, I did not succeed.  I ate 3 of the eggs, all the pork and veges, a lot of the soup, and 3 bowls worth of noodles.   But oh well, it was only $30!  Might do it again.
