Weekend Snapshots

This weekend I....

1. Was really worn out from the past work week and just wanted to stay in all weekend to catch up on sleep and decompress. There are times I have these anti social moments where I just want some time to myself after being around people literally all day at work and this weekend was one of those moments. Anyway, closet purging/reorganizing has been on my list of things to do for awhile now and I started on that project. Let's just say I didn't succeed much. I was tired. It was surprisingly overwhelming. To be continued.

2. Made ice-coffee after Summer decided to visit us on the east coast over the weekend. The temperatures rose close to the 90's which is all sorts of strange as we are in the month of October. I really dislike the taste of watered down ice-coffee so I usually freeze the leftover coffee I made from that day into my ice-cube tray so that when I make ice-coffee I won't have to worry about that horrible watered down taste.

3. Went to go eat at the ever popular Peking Gourmet Inn in Falls Church, Virginia. If you've never had peking duck before, I highly recommend this place for traditional peking duck. They expertly carve the whole duck table side for you into thin slices along with the delicious crispy skin so that you can wrap it in their house made tortilla, along with the onions and hoisin dipping sauce it comes with. The meat is moist and the skin is crispy with the perfect amount of chew. Major nom. However, it's pricey as a whole duck is about $40.

4. Started thinking about where I want to travel abroad next. I've been wanting to explore more of Asia since I've only been to Korea and have already traveled to Europe quite a bit. China and Japan are high on my list and are possible places to visit for 2014.

How was your weekend?


  1. I'm thinking about visiting Japan next spring! I went to Shanghai 2 years ago and LOVED every bit of it. the food is amazing, the sights are beautiful, and there is shopping literally EVERYWHERE. I'd highly recommend if you haven't been! apparently there are also quick flights/train rides to the countryside that make for great day trips and are a lot less crowded :)

    1. Shanghai is definitely on my list of places to visit! I might have to email you for recommendations;)
