My labor day weekend/ food diary.

Dear Biscuits,

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend. Did you spend it with friends and family or just staying at home and doing some house work/chores?

It's great to have a long weekend. You can relax as much as you want and still have an extra day. I didn't cook too much since it was my birthday but I always worry if what I am eating is healthy! Let's see.. Saturday I had some left over wings for lunch and then for my birthday dinner, we went to a steak restaurant and we had a crab stack which is pretty healthy and a rib-eye steak. For dessert, we had a Totoro cake from Six Ping! It was a vanilla cake filled with fruit and egg pudding.

On Sunday, we had lunch at the mall food court and some ramen at Tiger Den for dinner. Our dinner was really good. It's been awhile since we ate Ramen so it was a nice eat some nice noodle soup. The ramen was easy to eat because the noodles were just the right texture (not too soft and not too chewy) and the broth just made my body feel like a noodle in chicken noodle soup. An interesting side note: we had a legit Japanese guy sit next to us and he ordered in Japanese to the waiter! I somehow felt like I was in another country, far away from home for just that second.

Monday was a frustrating day. It started off with cooking soft boiled eggs but I couldn't get the egg to peel nicely. So I looked up instructions and cooked it again. Still no luck. We had a late lunch with a friend and that was delicious!! We ordered a dozen raw oysters on the shell and a fried seafood platter.

For my ending note, I want to thank my husband, family and friends for wishing me a happy birthday. I know it can be so trivial but it can make you feel so warm knowing that you are remembered and surrounded by people who care about you. Especially this year when I felt quite blue about turning a year older.
