I'm Bing. My friends often accuse me of taking more photos of food than I do of them.

(That is a fair assessment.)

Stacked is an intense series that features the compact urban architecture of Hong Kong. Australia-based photographer Peter Stewart points his camera upwards to capture the abstract shapes that form the city’s densely populated public housing structures.

Managed to cross off two things off my summer bucket list before Chicago weather starts maiming me again — White Sox vs Oakland A’s at U.S. Cellular Field (they hit a home run so I got to see fireworks!) and the last Cubs home game of the season (vs St Louis Cardinals) at Wrigley Field. Ate a lot of peanuts and polish sausages.

About to board a flight to LA — already have ramen and fried chicken plans lined up for the week, so my stomach is readyyy ✌

Last family meal at a spot outside O’hare before sending off my dad and grandparents to China for a month. Seafood vegetable platter, beef and broccoli, pork won ton soup, seafood egg drop soup, and Hunan beef. I could use like 10x more bowls of that won ton soup right about now ㅜㅜ

I’ll be ok. I just need time to be sad.

Sunday potluck! My mom made a batch of liangpi (cold rice flour noodles) for me to bring, which was nice since most people (even mainlanders!) never get a chance to try liangpi unless they go to Xi’an (or Xi’an Famous Foods for lucky New Yorkers). Theme of the night was dumplings, of which there were four varieties: shrimp & bok choy, beef & leek, pork & cabbage, and vermicelli noodle & tofu. And cornbread! For… cultural diversity…?

My mom stayed with me in Chicago this weekend! I won’t see her until November so tried to fit in as much bonding time as possible. :(

  • Food court at the new fashion outlet mall in Rosemont
  • Mitsuwa trip!!! Couldn’t leave without some daifuku
  • Raspberry, durian, and boysenberry macarons @ Ba le (will skip the durian flavor next time…)
  • Pork pate and ham banh mi in Argyle
  • Stocked up on egg and cheese buns from the bakery

Not everyone you lose is a loss.

Kimbap, yukgaejang (beef stew), pork / kimchi / red bean buns, and dduk mandu soup @ Joongboo Market in Belmont. Simple but super satisfying Korean food! Unfortunately since then I’ve fallen to a cold virus that’s currently wrecking my throat and sinuses. ㅜㅜ Came at possibly the worst time, because BX leaves tomorrow for a 2 week vacation in the Baltic, and he gets back the day after I fly out to LA for work… so we won’t see each other until October. :(

The Goatsnake (poblano corn relish, herbed goatcheese, buttermilk fried onions) + the Witchfinder General (pickled celery, smoked bacon, buffalo fried chicken, blue cheese) @ Kuma’s Too in Lakeview. Both cooked medium rare because what other way is there to eat a burger.

Beef flank pho + strawberry mango smoothie @ Tank in Argyle. Why isn’t there a Vietnamese Noodle Soup for the Tired Young Professional Soul book franchise yet?
