April & May 2014 HappeningsThis post is very late... But here are a few mini "adventures" I had the last 2 months.
I was pretty excited as it was going to be my first dorming experience (even if it was just for one night). Since I hardly ever travel, I looked pretty overpacked; now I know better, right?
Even though Stony is infamously known to be a party-school, I thought it was rather calm for a Thursday night. (Not that I went looking to party :P) I love the convenience of the college I go to...but nothing can really compare to an actual campus and all it's openness & culture.

b/t Bowery & Elizabeth St in Chinatown
|Fried Calamari w/ 3 sauces, Sweet Potato Waffle Fries, Pancetta Cream Pasta|
Cutting Board offers an Asian fusion/Italian selection. I remember seeing many Facebook posts from Cutting Board last summer and they all looked pretty tasty. I can't attest to all their dishes but the ones I had weren't bad. Portions are big for one person but not quite enough to share among two people.
|Chinatown Ice Cream Factory|
65 Bayard St New York, NY 10013
b/t Mott St & Elizabeth St in Chinatown
|Red Bean Ice Cream & Waffle Cone|
They had many flavors that I wanted to try but ended up playing it safe and getting the red bean flavor. I was a tad disappointed because there wasn't that much red bean flavor. But...if I ever feel like lining up again I would definitely go back to try some of their other unique flavors.

|Mango Sorbet w/ Cardamom Cookie|
|Spot Dessert @ Food Gallery 32|
|Smoked Coconut Cheesecake|
|Sundaes and Cones|
95 E 10th St New York, NY 10003
at 3rd Ave in East Village
|Thai Ice + Hazelnut Ice Cream & Waffle Cone|
I wish they still had a storefront in Brooklyn...only just found out that they were originally based in the Bay Ridge area ;(
Does anyone think the chambray/denim top + floral skirt combo look weird? I showed me Aunt (who's the most 'fashionable' in the family and she thought it was strange and an ugly combo...)
How could 2 months possibly go buy without me doing something in the kitchen :P
|Banana Flax Walnut Muffins|
|Black Sesame Bread|
Rice, Boiled Chicken Breast, Corn, 2 Soft Boiled Eggs, Good Food Tableside Greek Yogurt Guacamole
Since I can't buy it too often (pricey & high-calories!) I decided to figure something out at home. I guess this could be considered a "skinny" and "light" version, although the flavors are very much different. It is still very filling and of course you can vary it as you wish. The possibilities are endless in a rice bowl.
