Mexican cuisine is beginning to agree with my palate, as well as the husband. The good thing about us is that we are willing to try and try. And we keep trying (more than enough) until we finally make a decision.
The most that I can take was tacos in the old days. All that has changed the past year or so because I was willing to expand my horizon and I didn’t give up on it. Now, I can take anything Mexican for as long as the spicy seasoning is tempered. My husband seem to have embraced the same path.
It was the last Saturday of summer when we tried Ay Caramba! one more time. I wanted to bid adieu to summer while I was clad in pink almost from head to toe, and these magnetic copper bracelets. It turned out to be one great dining experience, never mind that I was once a Mexican food snob.
This quaint Mexican resto in Hewlett has regular diners that they seem to be so comfy with the wait staff. We’ll probably get to that level if we keep going. However, the resto is not really that close to home although, we frequent the area because we’ve grown to love the Five Towns in Long Island.
If you think orange and red does not exactly match – think again. I love the execution!
I’m sure this is just the beginning of more dining trips to this restaurant. We’ll just have to wait awhile though. As you may have surmised, Mr. Winter did an early appearance this season and it sure puts a damper to our mobility.
One weekend, we found ourselves undecided what type of food we wanted to feast on. The creatures of habit that we are, we agreed to go for Japanese food. The bigger issue though was, which restaurant do we head to?
We have our permanent must-go-to restos for each cuisine. But every once in a while we check out new places and the adventurous duo that we are, we always try new ones with the end in mind – so we have more resto options.
Shinjuku is relatively new. That evening it was bustling with patrons. The interior of the resto is nothing spectacular but I must say that the service was really good. However, we were not that pleased with the food.
Remember now, husband and I love Japanese food so much that if it’s permissible we can eat this type of food everyday. Without having to be that specific, we both agreed that this was the first and the last time we’re dining there. Something is missing. We just couldn’t pinpoint what it is.
Thai cuisine alongside with Japanese cuisine are two of our most favored type of food. Admittedly however, there was a point in time when we just kept dining at Italian restaurants. That was early on into our marriage. Blame it on my husband’s preference at that time.
Through the years, slowly but surely, his palate and food preference changed. I must say, it may have been from my own influence but I can’t say that it was imposed on him. Nowadays, Vietnamese cuisine is also highly favored.
Not too long ago, we went to Seeda Thai Restaurant. This quaint restaurant, though the menu is not that vast in comparison with other Thai restos that we’ve been to, my husband and I have identified several dishes on the menu that we keep going back to for more over and over again. Predictable? Yes we are! At the time when we dined, I failed to capture what was served on our table but the following shots were taken during an earlier dinner date.
Do you have any idea what Mackie Speakers are?
I know nowadays, it’s mortal sin to be ignorant but I still find myself having no clue at some things sometimes. Hence, particularly with this speaker, I had to research about it online and what have I got?
I found out that they come in many different types, powered or unpowered, high definition, 3-way, portable and many more. I didn’t realize how much choices the music aficionados have in their hands when it comes to speakers.
While I’m sure all of the different types emit good sound, in the ears of a discerning musician there is a big difference on the kind of sound that each produce.
Browsing through my EHD made me drool for these:
It’s been a few months since we dined out at Tobiko. We used to go there every couple of weeks but lately, we haven’t had that much chance to drop by the resto. In addition, we’re a bit leery because we heard that it’s under new management. I’m not sure how true that is, but we heard it from the grapevines. As with any new management, more often than not many changes are bound to be instituted.
The photos above were taken last February, which leads me to believe that it may have been the last time that we dined there. One of these days, we’ll find ourselves there. Then we’ll finally find out if there are changes.
If you are living with an avid collector, storage is always an issue. Admittedly, I’m living with one in the person of my husband. Collecting mint and graded sports cards as well as coins, sports commemorative plates as well as comic books are his thing.
There was a point when he was also into music CD’s and vinyls but he has outgrown his love for them. Not that he has outgrown his love for music. But just the same, if my estimate is right we may have more than a thousand pieces between the two. I can just imagine that if he is so into music, he may also get one of those krk rokit 5 g3. I heard that this gadget produces excellent sound.
At this point, even if storage is a continuous issue, I can’t really stop him from this hobby. In the same token that he can’t stop me from buying those precious and girly stuff that I love to collect. The only difference between his collection from mine is I get to enjoy and use what I collect because his collection are more valuable when they’re in mint condition so he’s just content looking at them.
Living in an area of the United States where the four season exists has its pros and cons. But I won’t even try to go there – you know, discuss each of the pros and the cons.
With the weather changing and once again we’re bracing for the colder months, it’s now become kind of tricky dressing up. The temperature swings can be erratic. While the weather channels can dish out the latest conditions outside, it is not that accurate as there are environmental factors that are inherent to ones area (in our case, we live near the beach so the temps seem to be always lower). I never thought of getting an outdoor thermometer to install right by our balcony, but my sister’s visit yesterday made me realize that I should really get one. She actually suggested it, so there is no second guessing what’s the real temperature outside when we head out. Her idea was borne out of her outdoor thermometer in her own garden to take care of her plants properly, but she thinks this is a good option for our purpose.
During this time of the year, more than ever, many people are prone to colds and flu. As we all know, any sickness may warrant a visit to a physician (good if one has a comprehensive health insurance like that of the coverage from burlington). More often than not, these conditions are contracted from not dressing up properly. My husband is the only one that heads out everyday even on weekends. He wants to get some fresh air, so even a short walk right to the parking lot to check on Sexie can get him sick if he’s not dressed properly.
Prevention is better than cure. So if only for that, I should really get an outdoor thermometer.
