What Happens When a Ken Liu Comes in Town...

We love having old friends come in town because it gives those of us from CHS already here the perfect excuse to get together (since just living in the same city isn't enough: )...hehe, it feels like old times anyways, don't you think? No time lost, just new memories to make together...

So great you could come for a visit, Ken! I really think you and JJ made the most of your trip: ).

Here's how it all happened:

11AM - Started my morning standing in a room full of smelly guys of all sizes wearing white and running back and forth on a gray panel, attached to a wire, no less, with a long sabre = yes, that's right, fencing! Went to see Jerry L. do his thing against US Olympians and the bunch, and it was such a neat experience! Thanks for inviting me, Jerry!

8PM - I enjoyed the afternoon, and then we all met up for dinner at Ippudo! I've heard such good things but never had a chance to go. It was quite an experience, much in part to having to wait 2 hours before getting seated! But, no worries, because the "it was life changing". I think I ate it too quick b/c I was so hungry haha, but it was good! (grabbed some photos from Ken's fb album too: ).

While we waited though, we enjoyed Momofuku's Milk Bar, where my new friend Steven hooked us up with soft serve, cereal milk, and each of the cookies! Delicious!

11PM - Ended the night at my favorite drink/lounge place, Wine Bar near St. Marks!

One more breakfast on their last day! Met up at Essa-A-Bagel, "The Best Bagels in NY".

Until next time!
