Spectacular Night

At near by complex, this special illumination was on display. It was cold but worth to see.
In the room, much anticipated birthday cake was delivered to the room. A very nice day, indeed.

Special Occasion

To celebrate this day, we are staying at a nice hotel. Some special treatment from the hotel. I am so spoiled.

The Best BBQ

We celebrated X'mas with Korea BBQ. My friend knew about this place and it is really difficult to make a reservation.
Started at 5 pm and non stop eating the best BBQ I had ever tested.
Merry X'mas to all.

Great Find

I am really liking this area. Today we tried this charcoal grill place where we got mackerel and hamburg. They were really good and very reasonably priced
Can't believe we can have this high quality meals in the center of the city at this price range.

This is the proof of how much travel I do in a year. There are a lot of benefits but a lot of air time I spent.

Shibuya Date

We went to Shibuya for lunch and hung out
Originally we thought about sushi but the place just finished their lunch service, so we started walking around. Luckily we found this place. I wanted to eat oysters and fried shrimp and this set menu had both. They both were really good.

Napolitan Spaghetti

We, meaning Japanese people, have invented Japanese pasta by using tomato ketchup as a sauce. Back, onion and bell pepper do the trick.

Home away from Home

This is where I stay this week in Amsterdam.  This is not a hotel where I usually stay at but I spoiled myself to this nicer hotel this week with a suite upgrade.
Still new and everything seems very clean.

Weekend in Den Haag

My plan to go to Cork in Ireland was unfortunately cancelled due to some good news my friend had.
So I am here in Den Haag this weekend. It is santaaclaus here in the Netherlands.  It is very controversial as they pant their face to black.
A light lunch from a healthy store.

Home Cooking

Mainly vegetables with one fish dish, not pictured.
I feel the week when I am at home I need to consume as much vegetables and fish as possible to offset not perfect diet on road.

Sunday in Atlanta

Local diner for our breakfast.  Could not see any outsiders except us, so a bit weird.
Food was good and unique to South. On the way back home, stopped by a lake. It could be nice to walk around was warmer.

Green Tomato Fries

You have what locals do.
Loved this fried green tomato sandwich.
A half lemonade and another half iced tea. So southern. People down here are so nice.

This is a little house where FDR died.
