Fall Season 2010

sooooo.... the 2010 fall season has started a while ago, I thought it's time to talk a little bit about the shows I am watching this year:

Glee - Shuester is really annoying the heck outta me this season. Com'on, Emma has moved onto the Carl, give it up! It's so pathetic to have to watch him pine over her episode after episode. yuck. Other than that, such a great show!

Cougar Town - This show has really evolved into an ensemble show hasn't it? I really love Jules and Grayson, and Laurie getting dumped? So sad~~~

Parenthood - the show started off kinda slow, but I'm really warming up to it. I started watchin this for Lauren Graham, but now I really enjoy all of the brothers and sisters. (Well, except Dax Shepard, I hope Crosby would just die) And with a Baldwin joining the crew for the last couple episodes, things are getting interesting! (but seriously, Sarah deserves a good man in her life!)

Vampire Diaries - Every episode is AWESOME. Just when I thought the show couldn't get any better, it surprises me again! Last episode was so intense that it just blew my mind away. Poor Tyler! And Katherine! I'm sure she'll be back. Oh, and I just can't get enough of Damon's hotness!!!!! Elena needs to forget Stefan!

Grey's Anatomy - after last year's crazy ass season finale, all the characters are f*cked up this season. The latest episode was kinda interesting as a documentary, you really get to see how much these characters have grown. Poor Mandy Moore, she survived such a crazy shooting spree, yet cannot get through a simple surgery. :(

oh and guess what? Scott Foley will have a recurring role this season! YAY! Loved him since he was Noel on Felicity~

Private Practice - starting to like Violet more again. Addison is starting to get on my nerves though. It's still hard for me to picture her with Sam! And where's Naomi?

Brothers and Sisters - they killed the Senator. I still cannot believe it. They KILLED the Senator! And now they made Scotty a cheater?? HELL NO! I hate you writers!

Nougatine

這天拉了少爺和H友人來到中央公園﹐為的是一嚐Nougatine at Jean Georges的$26 prix fixe lunch menu。


餐聽原來就在Trump Tower內﹐我們找了一陣子才弄清楚~


我的頭盤是Tuna Tartare。新鮮的吞拿魚配著帶點薑味的芝麻汁﹐好開胃~


少爺點的Fried Calamari看似沒甚麼特別﹐但原來他們的魷魚不是醃著麵粉﹐而是用蛋白來炸﹐所以咬下去時脆得來又不會油膩。還有用來沾魷魚的醬也是新鮮打起的啊~


Grilled Tenderloin of Beef。牛肉肉質好嫩好嫩﹐而且那個pesto醬調得非常香﹐讚~


Spiced Roasted Organic Chicken﹐雞皮焗好脆﹐但雞肉卻又軟又有汁﹐好味~ 可惜這碟少爺不喜歡... ~_~


H的Slowly cooked Salmon﹐我沒吃﹐但看賣相也不錯。我們本來以為正方形一個個的是炸豆腐﹐誰知道原來是飯... :P


甜品來了! 首先是少爺的Vanilla Poached Peach﹐好香酒味的~


我和H每人點了一份Warm Chocolate Cake。


是心太軟啊﹐裡面有熱熱的古古力醬流出來的呀~~~ yummmmm~ :O~

Kyotofu

在鳥人沒吃甜點﹐為的是走第二攤~ 一直都好羨慕紐約有很多dessert bars﹐這次終於可以一試啦。Kyotofu是日式fushion甜品店﹐有prix fixe有a la carte﹐這時我們都已經很飽﹐所以決定單點。


先來一碗黑芝麻甜豆腐。芝麻味道很濃﹐質感有點像布丁﹐不錯。


很喜歡跟著的這一道綠茶crème brûlée﹐配著清爽的sorbet吃味道非常搭配。


臨走時看到他們還有外賣部﹐我又忍不住....


要了幾塊迷你macaron﹐可是這裡的macaron麻麻﹐失望~ 下次還是坐下來吃餐牌上的甜點就好。

Yakitori Totto

好久沒來紐約了﹐當然要到我朝思暮想的鳥人走一倘。這天我和少爺本來打算在city內趴趴走的﹐但卻遇上下雨﹐真討厭。


一坐下就點我的最愛燒雞皮﹐呵呵呵~


脆脆的雞皮沾著五味粉﹐好讚啊。


侍應說雞膝只剩下最後兩支﹐我們馬上要了~


好愛這裡的雞肉meatball﹐就像Wen說過的﹐這裡的meatball肉汁很多﹐好好吃哦。我們點了鹽味﹐醬油味和梅子味﹐我最愛梅子味﹐好香~


他們的神戶牛舌起價了﹐$8一支! 好貴呀~ (不過不減美味)


走地雞飯來了~



不得不說﹐鳥人仍然是我在美國吃過最棒的日式串燒店。難怪在門口外常堆滿了等位的人﹐要來的話一定要先訂位哦。

一風堂

一早已聽說日本的一風堂在紐約設店了﹐這次有機會﹐最愛拉麵的的我當然要去吃啦~

我們一點鐘去到﹐好多人已在排隊。那個派籌小姐說要等一個半小時﹐嗚....


坐下來即來兩個友人H大讚的Hirata肥豬肉包~


好~肥~~~~~ 不過好~好~~味~~~~~


拉麵來了﹐我點的是Shiromaru Hakata Classic豬骨湯拉麵~ 啊~~~~ 溏心蛋~~~~~ :O~


少爺點的Akamaru Modern拉麵。也是豬骨湯底﹐不過加了味噌和蒜頭﹐另外再外加肥豬肉﹐我覺得比我的classic拉麵更惹味! 早知我也點這個啦~

Mapo BBQ

這天晚上約了少爺的朋友們聚餐﹐他們選了在Flushing的Mapo BBQ。韓式燒烤一向都是少爺的最愛﹐他當然馬上贊成啦~

先上小菜。


這個燒玉米最受歡迎。另外還有蒸蛋和豆腐煲送﹐好像都不錯~


這裡最出名的Kalbi牛小排來了~ 我們點菜時那個侍應強烈推薦這個﹐說是Mapo的名物﹐所以我們點了五份~~ 另外再加一份pork belly。


燒好了﹐yummmmmm~


要用生菜包著肉和店家醃好的洋蔥吃﹐再加上豆醬﹐美味! 這兒的kalbi肉果然好嫩好嫩﹐我們沒有點錯~ 不過不算便宜﹐要$28一份啊。


同場加映外星B食麵記。這是朋友A的寶貝兒子﹐我覺得他剛出世時的眼睛好大好大﹐大得像外星人﹐所以就叫他外星B啦﹐呵呵呵~ 他好可愛的啊~~~~~<3

南翔小籠包

聽說在Flushing的這家南翔小籠包的東西做得不錯﹐比得上鹿鳴春﹐便跟少爺去試試看。嘩﹐果然是人氣店﹐等了好久才有位子...


先來兩杯冰豆漿。這裡的豆漿很濃很香﹐讚~


蘿蔔絲拌海蜇皮。蘿蔔絲多海蜇皮少﹐而且沒甚麼味道。不推。


鍋貼﹐還可以啦~~ 吃到這時已開始有點飽...


最後﹐主角蟹粉小籠包終於出現了~


皮薄﹐汁也多﹐可是我還是比較愛鼎泰豐的味道啊~~~

出發再回來

近月總提不起勁寫博。公司最近非常忙碌,回到家已好累好累。電影十一月上畫,到今天還在趕工,artist們OT得天昏地暗,不知能不能如期把電影拍完。到了週末又忙著吃喝玩樂,睡眠更是嚴重不足。

很享受現在的生活。我知道自己是幸福的,有譚爸譚媽少爺常伴着我,不惜福就真是太不該了。尤其看到Stannum今年的遭遇,我就更加惶恐,怕會失去我愛的人,好怕好怕。

剛過去的週末跟少爺飛了去紐約趴趴走,會把遊記貼上來。(希望不會像alaska遊記般,還未開始已結束,嘻)

O*Udon

在介紹日本餐廳的雜誌內看到有家日式手打烏冬麵店O*Udon在Fountain Valley新開張﹐愛吃烏冬的我當然馬上要去試。


點了個combo#3: 一碗大烏冬麵﹐一份spicy tuna roll﹐三塊tempura和一杯冰麥茶才$5.95! 好便宜~~~~



雖然O*Udon賣的也是全天然材料做的自家手打烏冬﹐但我還是比較喜歡Fukada的烏冬麵﹐因為我覺得O*Udon的麵硬了點。不過如果要比價錢的話﹐O*Udon實在化算多啦~

對了﹐來這裡吃麵時別忘了加這個辣芝麻﹐讚~~~~:O~

時光倒流30年

最近開車上班下班時愛上了聽余宜發的“一切從音樂開始”。(發發~~~~~)

每天的“一切從音樂開始”都會有不同的主題。記得我和少爺第一次聽時是“我的90年代”﹐嘩﹐首首歌都是經典﹐好正啊~

今天剛聽到的一集是80年代歌曲。我好老餅呀﹐差不多首首都識! 最慘是少爺居然大部份的歌都未聽過~ 嗚~~~~ 誰叫我從小便是撈TBB飯汁大的呢? 每個星期的勁歌金曲我都是必看的啊~~~ (少爺說他小時候家裡只會看教育電視﹐咩人黎架頂!!!!)

來貼一下今集播過的幾首歌。聽著聽著﹐真的感覺到好像時光倒流了一樣啊。:)

香腸蚊帳機關槍 - 細個一直覺得阿B係溫拿最靚仔o個個﹐都唔明點解紅左個阿倫而唔紅佢....


放縱 - 憶蓮以前把聲好唔同呀~ 我估唔到少爺居然未聽過呢首歌﹐仲話咩點會有女人唱“我空虛我寂寞我凍”喎。車~


每段路 - 嘩﹐MV都好多嘉賓喎﹐個陣呂方已經好紅咩??

Kappo Suzumaru

昨天跟少爺找到一家很棒的日本小餐廳﹐還要是在我們家附近的﹐好開心﹐想要記下來。

餐廳叫Kappo Suzumaru﹐在一個毫不起眼的strip mall裡面﹐就是跟Kairakutei Ramen House在同一個商場內啦。


一進去﹐嘩﹐裝修得好傳統的日本餐廳啊。所有的侍應/壽司師傅都是日本人﹐連客人也大多是日本人﹐讓我們覺得這次找對地方了。

餐牌有日文有英文﹐可是我總是覺得日文版裡一定有些英文版上沒有的好料。嗚嗚....


網上食評說這裡的tapa style小吃很不錯。可是我們這天好想吃冷烏龍麵﹐就只叫了一個Homemade豆腐來試試看。豆腐上鋪滿了魚籽﹐果然好香好滑呢。


我點的是Albacore Tataki飯和冷烏龍麵的套餐﹐而少爺則點了蕎麥麵和天婦羅蓋飯套餐。

烏龍麵又涼又Q﹐夏天吃最爽~


鮪魚片蓋飯也好吃﹐新鮮的魚生配著微溫日本米飯﹐再加上芝麻粒﹐好香啊~


少爺的套餐我沒拍照﹐可是他也大讚。看來我們將會是這裡的常客了。下次我要試他們的海膽飯和鮭魚鍋啊~~~ :)

Inception... deep inside your mind


*SPOILER WARNING*

Anyone and everyone I've run into has been talking about Inception lately. In order to avoid having the movie being spoiled for me, I had to see it for myself, ASAP.

....and then...

Wow. The movie -definitely- did not disappoint. The story is SO complicated, yet it's so innovative that it really blows your mind away. A dream within a dream within a dream within a dream. Every depth of the dream, every calculated action and every planned fall just leaves you in awe of the bigger picture.

The key players are the Extractor(Cobb), the Point Man(Arthur), the Architect (Ariadne), the Chemist(Yusuf), the Forger(Eames) and the Tourist(Saito). Every single character played their part perfectly. Cobb's messed up past complicated the situation quickly, yet helped draw the audience into their dreams deeper and deeper. Towards the end, I felt like I wanted to know more about each of the characters than I ever cared for, and that's such a rare gift for any movie.

Of course, the story is not without flaws. Why on earth would someone as powerful as Saito risk his own safety to join the inception team? I know it's to make sure the job gets done, but he could very well pay someone else to do it! And why would Fisher trust Cobb so easily if he has been trained to combat extraction?? I had a lot of questions. Oh well, my head is already about to explode with all the complicated details of the movie, so I'm not planning to drill on the faults.

After the movie is over, the first thing my friend said was,"How in the world did Christopher Nolan come up with this idea?!" And what an idea it was, it left my mind exhausted for the rest of the night. Yet, I still cannot wait to see this movie again. Soon.
