I occasionally stop by the Figat7th plaza after work since it’s within walking distance. Having a Zara that close to my office is dangerous…

Din Tai Fung

My family had dinner at Din Tai Fung in Arcadia last weekend for the first time. The food was good, but I have to say that I wasn’t all that impressed by the dumplings. (I think the dumplings at Mama Lu’s are just as good.)

Doughmaker Doughnuts

Discovered Doughmaker Doughnuts this week. So glad we caught them right before they closed. If you’re a donut fanatic like I am, definitely check them out!

We biked to the Astros game on Thursday to see Drake.

Starbucks Chai Latte

Went into work early on Friday and picked up a chai latte from Starbucks before going into the office.

strawberry green tea with rainbow jelly

Strawberry green tea with rainbow jelly from Dulce Tapioca. One of the things I miss the most from home is the boba and flavored teas – none of the places in Houston make it quite like they do back home (although Dulce is one of the few places that comes close).

Happy Father's Day

Wanted to wish my Dad a Happy Father’s Day. I couldn’t fly home to surprise him like I did last year, but I’ll see him in a few weeks when I go back for July 4th (can’t wait!). Love you Dad!
