Lunch by the Ocean

20 minutes drive to this place right next to the beach, or more like port.
Burger with fries, lemonade and iced tea. So summery.
It has been cool this year and only several people were in the beach today.

Pasta Dinner

One of our favorite dishes to eat. I use dried Shiitake mushrooms instead of fresh mushrooms. It five a lot of flavor to the dish.

Chicken Friday Dinner

Lime chicken with roasted vegitables. Mixed multi grains with brown rice so it has to be healthy. Wish we had an outdoor grill especially in summer.

Breakfast at Home

My typical breakfast is bagel or home baked bread. Today was a bit special as I bought this simple cake at the Grand Central.
Started working at 3:30 and breakfast at 4:30. I am sure I will have a bit more cake later.

BBQ Dinner

Wanted to eat some meats tonight and this is what came out. Don't worry we did not finish all.

I got peaches from NJ today.

Last Day of Work

Back to NYC last night and needed to go to the office this morning in NYC. At grand central station where I bought a bagel for breakfast.

Dinner at Okura

Tomorrow is my last working day in Amsterdam before the summer break, so I brought my coworkers to his favorite. We shared the table and chef with a group of people from Chicago and Spain.
Food was good, while bill was high...

Lazy Sunday in Brussels

I usually go back to Amsterdam on Sunday afternoon, but I need to report to the office located between Amsterdam and Brussels, so I decided to leave here tomorrow morning.
I feel like I have an extra day as I can do nothing today.

I am today in Brussels for the weekend. I can't find something interesting here yet. Cool cloudy day here.

Indian Dinner

Sadly UK is not famous for their cuisines... Baked beans for breakfast?
So they adopted the countries they occupied cuisines, Indian food as almost like this own food.
Looks good but taste OK. It is very difficult to find good food for me who was raise in Japan and live in NY where you can have pretty top level cuisines from all over the world.

Day Trip to Bath 1

Great suggestions from some and I am so glad that I did. Over 2 hours of bus ride was not much fun but it was well worth it.
All the buildings are made with limestone so very uniformed look throughout the city.
Their traditional pie with pork.

Wicked Show

My hotel is located just around the corner of the theater, and this is one of the show I wanted to and should watch for a while.
It was a very fun show and the two main characters were very talented.
British accents were really cute though.

London Day Time

Cloudy day unlike yesrerday. I wanted to take a bus to see how the city looks from a higher point. It was really nice ride to the British Museum, which is FREE admission.
Big Ben was another view from the ride.
Found a small bakery and this was a HIT.

Evening in London

Debated between shows and something else and I ended up with the ballet. It is off season so nothing traditional but I had a nice time.
Double decked bus is so UK and my tube goes to Wimbledon... Cool.

Friday Afternoon in London

Wrapped up the work early around 1 pm by execusing that it is the independence day after all.
Walked through the park to the store recommended by my friend - Liberty. A huge store where you can surely buy their famous print fabric and other stuff.

Hi Mate... in London

With some reason, I came to London this weekend instead of NY.
Everyone adds "mate" at the end here which is cute. Fish and chips in UK, right?
