Time lapse videos have been making the rounds on the internet lately, but these two are particularly spectacular. Make sure you watch them full screen. The shots of all the stars make me teary eyed -- at how much light pollution is depriving us, and how majestical this world is. Enjoy :)

It's Chinese New Year weekend! The day started off with dumplings at C and D's. Yum!

One word: overrated! Or is that two words? Anyhoo, this was the highlight of the evening... love love this drink. After I finished one, I emphatically said to the waitstaff -- I want another Millionaire! Yes, that's the drink's name. And no, I am not a golddigger :)

Cristal bubblies to welcome 2012.
Drunk chicken. When my Ningbo-nese grandmother made drunk chicken, she would use a freshly slaughtered organic chicken, and use the best Shaoxing wine. Just not the same as grandma's. But it's not the restaurant's fault, it's just times are different now.This was so good though. Dian Tiao Yellow Croaker. Diao Tiao is a kind of seaweed Ningbo-nese often use in their cuisine. Many Shanghainese are from Ningbo, so Dian Tiao is prevalent in Shanghainese cuisine too. The batter is terrific, not greasy at all, and the fish inside was so fresh and tender and flakey. Perfectly cooked. Def going back for this dish.
