I’ve been staring at my computer for weeks now. You see, I have this project for school that I just can’t get
started to work for some reason. Blogging is taking a back seat for now even though I’ve been eating, eating, eating (most days having two lunches and two dinners). So, in true Blissful fashion, allow me to share with you some of the guilty pleasures I’ve been stuffing my face with this past week…
Sublime Doughnuts Dearest Kamal, thank you so much for spotting me $20 when your debit card reader was down and my sister had absolutely no cash with her. And to think we hadn’t even met. You’re the best. Love, Chloe.
Krystal Burgers Part of my nightly munchies. Best consumed after 1AM. Off-the-grill: no pickles, no mustard. With cheese. Extra crispy fries. And Diet Coke.
NM Cafe Sandwiches and Salads are what I call “girl-food” — no offense to anyone (my salad/sandwich-eating sister loves girl-food), but they’re just not my thing. Why? Because I get crazy hungry 20 minutes later.
Cupcakes The cupcake/doughnut fairy recently gave me cupcakes from the Cupcake Factory. They were delicious. Thank you, Mr. Fairy. Love ya, even though you get on my nerves all the freaking time.
Japanese snacks Childhood favorites. For when my frequent hypoglycemia kicks in.
Korean Cheetos A new find. I love the black one. Your American brothers, Jalapeño Cheetos and Flaming Hot, welcome you.
Dim Sum at Royal China and East Pearl are a Sunday family tradition. But Royal China rules because nothing beats having a Cantonese chef. We’ve been eating there since we were small. East Pearl isn’t so good because there are more misses than hits. The spicy beef short ribs, however, is amazing.
Korean I’ve been saying I wish I were Korean. My good friend JZP said to me (referring to how we love everything Korean), “God knows we’ve both tried to become Korean. But at the end of the day, we both know we’re not, no matter how much we tried.” I’m hoping hanging out with Sean or Gene will make me Korean by association, if anything else.
Pizza My pizza partner-in-crime is starting to slow down. Need to find another pizza buddy. Interested? Big appetite a must.
Asian Tea Bubble tea, warm Milk Taro tea with tapioca pearls and our newest obsession: fresh-squeezed Yuzu tea (both hot or cold) that Broderick and I recently discovered.
Chocolate Croissants From the No. 1 Hongkong Bakery. Only $1 each. Only 10 made daily. Order 24 hours in advance or go in the morning. Chocolate and bread. Best love-team ever. (Well, second to bread and butter.)
Okay, that’s all for now. Back to the staring thing…
