I have exciting news, hehe! I recently started writing restaurant reviews for Pasadena Now, a local paper for the city of Pasadena. A few weeks ago I visited and reviewed Bistro K, a restaurant I’ve been pining over for quite a while, yet never had the opportunity to visit. So if you’ve got time to kill, here’s the review! :)

On another note: don’t talk on your cell phone while eating curry udon. I was doing just that over lunch today when my cell phone fell in the curry. Panicked, I hung up on my mom and jumped up, accidentally knocking over the curry udon right onto my lap. Noodles and curry on my skirt, my chair, my desk and the carpeted floor – it was sight to see. And the most exciting minute of my day so far!

    I’m not sure why I have an account such that I have a name, but that’s irrelevant. I love reading your blog, Kathy, because everything always looks so good. I’ve been eating nothing but granola, nutella, and oatmeal bread for the past 2 days. It really makes me want curry udon.

    Hey Reid!Thanks! It’s only super temporary though, I’m going back to Hawaii in a couple of weeks (finished with college!) But it’s sure a great experience!Hey Rowena!Thank you! It’s not a full time (or even part time!) job at that. Just something to do over the weekends…cause I’m graduating and going back home to Hawaii in a few weeks! :)
