Another busy weekend. But the good kind of busy where you ask yourself happily "What's next?" Not the kind where you're afraid to lift your head because you'll get smacked by obligations.
Friday night we celebrated Mike the brother in laws birthday. It was fun. Niel bbq'd some burgers, steak and hot dogs. Niel so loves being near an open flame.
Saturday we picked up our wedding negatives from our photographers. Our wedding fit into a nice, tidy tin can. I can't believe it will almost be four years. Yet we still have fun. Niel noticed there was an bubble tea place that opened up across the street from the photo studio. His old neighborhood is becoming trendy, three spas and now a bubble tea place. All it needs is a book store. We ran into his mom and sat around drinking some Mango smoothies. Bubble Tea unfortunately gives me a tummy ache. Then we were off to the 15th Annual Hong Kong Boat race in Flushing Meadow Park. We watched competitions, walked around to the various booths, enjoyed some Beef Teriyaki, Knishes and Pigs in a Blanket, and found a breezy spot to soak it all in. Afterwards went grocery shopping at a newly opened chain a few minutes from my parents house. Jennifer told us about it last Sunday and we went to check it out. It is so big, clean and has a good variety. We ran into Jennifer, Renzo and their baby. It was pretty funny. Afterwards Niel and I went to my parents for a little bit. Later in the evening we saw March of the Penguins. It was so beautiful and sad at the same time. The perseverance of those penguins to survive is incredible. Lovely film. Then we came home and watched Lara Croft: The Cradle of Life. We didn't like it at all.
Sunday morning we went to to see Kelvin and Shawnda at Kelvin's aunt's house in Niel's old neighborhood. Kelvin and Shawnda were in NY for a wedding. Mike came by too. Kelvin's aunt made us some good Trinidarian food and we sat around and talked. It was good to see them again. After some errand running we went to try some Empanada's at a new place in Forest Hills Niel saw while we were walking around after March of The Penguins ended. The food was so so. Came back and watched Hitch while the mother of all rainstorms shook the apartment windows. The rain was needed though. We didn't like Hitch either. Pictures here of the weekend.
My office fridge is being replaced this week and I've had to purchase lunch. Blach. Not good for the finances. Manhattan lunches are pricey! Thank goodness it's only a week and I can go back to my brown bag lunches.
