It was a most delightful day, kept casual and intimate. Friends and colleagues celebrated with simple foods, delicious desserts, and tasteful beer. It's been a busy few weeks and I've been letting things slip down my priorities ladder so must get back on track soon. Afterward, I went home and discussed some longstanding issues with my aunt and uncle then proceeded to watch Season 2 of The Big Bang Theory. It was most satisfactory. I am surprised to see that Leonard actually got a shot at Penny but feel it was end part of the plot were he to succeed.
I was going to start a journal yesterday but was so busy it didn't happen - not to mention I don't know where my journal is hiding.
It is soon to be Chocolate Holiday and Lunar New Year on Sunday 14 February 2010. I don't usually believe in sending out cards for such a commercial "holiday" but figure this year care cards are certainly due. As part of my existential mood, I suppose, it'll help me maintain strong meaningful relationships and forge closer bonds. While the meaning of life is quite loaded with ideas more abysmal than string theory, I think part of it strives to find happiness. Simple happiness.
Some wonderfully tasty dessert places in Irvine that I would recommend to any sweet tooth like myself:
- 85 Degrees Celsius Bakery - Diamond Jamboree Plaza - freshly baked savory and sweet breads, novelty desserts, and teas, coffees, boba drinks
- Guppy House - Diamond Jamboree Plaza - the best dark chocolate brick toast - don't forget to add the strawberries!
- Mochilato - Walnut Plaza off Culver Drive - the perfect combination of Italian gelato ice cream and Asian mochi - they also have delectable shaved ice and don't skimp on the condensed milk
Happy Birthday, Terrence! - Love, Philip
With that, I leave you with a short tweet from a fabulously creative, witty, satirical, and comical book called Twitterature.
