Sugar, spice, and a pinch of GLAM

Asian, Irish, and Greek!

03.15-17.14: Third week highlights

Hello, dolls!!! I am baaaack ,not that I was away for too long or something. But yeah, I am just too happy that I get to update my site tonight after a very awesome work weekend. In 9 days, I will be here for 2 months (what?already?) and I am going to talk about my third week just now (yikes). Just like what I always say, “I’ve been incredibly busy” . In the midst of my crazy-busy-happy life I am still able to do a bit of traveling, EATING and shopping — what else can I ask for?.  I can say that as of now, I’ve got everything that I need. It’s still pretty hard to say this, but I am starting to realize that things are not always pink and pretty and how I want them to be. Sometimes, it’s better and bigger and it could take time to accept and see the beauty in things, or at least I think that’s how it was when it came to believing that distance should not hinder me from being who I want to be.

Our Mondays are always crazy-fun. We always try to go to places and EAT awesome food.

This Monday, however, has got to be one of the bests. We were able to accomplish a lot of things and celebrate 3 cultures!

First Stop: Pho’ 98 in Glen Burnie.

Glen Burnie is 30-45 minutes away from us, and we only go there for 2 reasons — Roger and Frances or to go shopping. We did both that day, but it was more for the couple that we love and their wedding 🙂

Chicken Pho

Perfect for the very cold weather that we had that day.

Broth was very light and flavorful. The noodles were good,

If we are to compare it to the Vietnamese restaurant in Towson (which is 10 min away from us) we would say that is better. But Pho 98’s is good enough to keep our tummies happy.

Steamed Dumplings x Chicken with Broccoli Stir Fry x Fried Spring Rolls

Asian Feast!

Chicken with Broccoli was okay, it could need  a bit of seasoning but whatevs, the dumplings sufficed for it and the spring rolls. YUMMS!

After going to the bridal shop for my bridesmaids dress we went straight to Canton to meet up with friends from work to celebrate St. Patty’s day.

And where better place to celebrate St. Patty’s? An Irish Pub of course!

We couldn’t stay for more than an hour and a half cause we had an important dinner to go to, but it was nice to celebrate St. Patty’s Day 3 times this year!!
