[Laguna Hills] Wok & Dumpling

Wok & Dumpling
鮮肉小籠湯包 Juicy Pork XiaoLongBao

We used to go to Wok & Dumpling all the time.
Not only it’s close to our house, also they have really good xiao long bao and dan dan noodle.
Then a few months back I read on Yelp that the restaurant has a new owner,
and food doesn’t taste good anymore.
We haven’t been back for a long time.
Recently I read on Yelp that they got the old xiao long bao chef back.
So we decided to give it a try again.
Yes, xiao long bao is still very juicy and very good, just like the old time.

以前我們一天到晚去Wok & Dumpling報到,
不但因為離家近,還因為他們有很好吃的小籠包和擔擔麵,
幾個月前我在網路上看到評論說換老闆了,然後食物變得很難吃,
所以我們好久沒回去了,
最近看到網路評論說新老闆把以前的小籠包師傅找回來了,
所以我們決定再上門試試,
果然小籠包還是跟以前一樣,多汁又好吃。 (more…)

[Los Angeles] 조선갈비 Chosun Galbee

Chosun Galbee
Banchan – potato salad, kimchi, Korean pancake, and cucumber

We were going to take my mother-in-law out for dinner.
But she wasn’t feeling well by the time we got to her house.
She suggested us to go to Chosun Galbee, and we could bring some food home for her.
I’ve been to Chosun Galbee very long time ago when I was still living in LA.
I remember the restaurant was pretty good, but pricey.

本來的計劃是要帶婆婆出門吃晚餐,
但是等我們開車到婆婆家後,婆婆說肚子有點不太舒服,
他提議我和公園先生兩人去吃Chosun Galbee的韓國烤肉,
然後可以幫他帶點東西回家就好,
很久以前還住在LA的時候去過Chosun Galbee,
印象中蠻好吃的但是有點小貴。 (more…)

What Does Home Mean to You?

What Does Home Mean to You?

No matter what shape or size your living space is, the concept and feeling of home can mean different things to different people. Whether it’s a certain scent or a favorite chair, the emotional reasons why we choose to buy our own home are, more often than not, the more powerful or compelling ones.

無論您的生活空間是什麼形狀或大小,家的概念和感覺對不同的人有不同的意味和感覺,不管是家的氣味或是您最喜歡的椅子,為什麼我們選擇購買房屋的原因,情感原因往往佔著重要的地位。

Every year, The Joint Center for Housing Studies at Harvard University conducts a survey to find driving factors behind why Americans decide to buy a home.

每年,哈佛大學的聯合住房研究中心皆會進行調查,找出為什麼美國人決定購買房屋的因素。 (more…)

[Costa Mesa] Seabirds Kitchen

Seabirds Kitchen

This was my second time to Seabirds Kitchen.
The first time I came with my sister to try this vegan restaurant.
Seabirds used to be a vegan food truck.
Eventually they opened a physical restaurant at The Lab.
I was so impressed with the food the first time.
I had to take Dr. P back to try this place.

這是我第二次來Seabirds Kitchen,
第一次是跟妹妹一起來試試這家全素餐廳,
他們以前是個素食餐車,
後來在The Lab開了一家實體餐廳,
第一次來對他們的食物太驚豔了,
一定要帶公園先生回來試試看。 (more…)
