I’m sorry that I haven’t written in a LONG time. I’m just writing this mostly non-food post for the sake of letting you know I’m still alive (and possibly bordering insanity; it’s explained as you read on).

It’s just because my aunt and her bratty 8 year-old son visited over my remaining half of my so-called spring break. My family and my aunt and her child went down to Washington D.C. for the sake of the cherry blossoms and everything else that is aesthetically appealing…which mostly was flowers or sparkly jewelry from the Smithsonian Natural History Museum.

The food scene was so disappointing for the budgeted! The French bistro I wanted to go doesn’t have enough tables for a group of six people. The even more sadder thing was that I went there twice on different times and they still don’t have a table for six. I had to suffer disgusting food from D.C.’s Chinatown on the first night and eaten a mediocre lunch. Ehh… at least I survived. Here’s a photo of one of my favorite flowers, the orchid, from this trip that somewhat justifies me being down there.


The other reasons why I haven’t written in a while is because the Monday after my Easter weekend from D.C., I had an hour and a half interview for my hope-to-be summer internship at an enormous law office in Times Square. The location is not my desirable place to be but I don’t care, as long I have a darn internship! And I felt drained from that lengthy interview. Then I have to write two final papers for my classes, which takes out even more of my food blogging time. Oy, I’m really busy. I hope I can write a real in-depth food entry for everyone soon. Probably around early next week. But I will leave you with this something food related for this post to look at (or possibly lick your screen…?). It’s a chocolate cupcake from Almondine Bakery in Dumbo, Brooklyn.
