A lil' half smoked, chilli cheese fries, and fried chicken to start off the mid week holiday!!.
cupcakes, macarons, happy hour boozing (and yummy grilled squid!), and fatty steaks!
Some Viet food action--snails in coconut sauce, shaken beef (bo luc lac), grilled clams and mussels topped with sauteed green onions, peanuts and shallots, crab fried rice, and the infamous Ray's Burgers
night time strolling and shenanigans.
I still get excited about this view...
Stuffing our faces before heading to see fireworks. This year instead of trekking into D.C, we just walked to Iwo Jima from our apartment, found a nice spot amongst the crowds and stared right into D.C to see the fireworks shooting from the Monument.
Sitting, the asian way!
Not a bad view at all!! Congress, Monument, and Lincoln all visible from our seat in Virginia! And we didn't have to deal w/ the mad metro crowd!
After a 6 hour gambling trip (and winning!), complete with spooky ghost stories, singing to sappy love songs, and telling stories of relationships' past (ahem, QUANG!), we decided to feast on a giant ass Korean bbq meal at 4:30 a.m. The sun was up by the time we left the restaurant at 6:30 a.m. BED by 7 a.m. Then I had to drag my ass to work til 8 p.m =((
Somehow we all managed to get up to grab our last lunch together before everyone headed to the airport and I had to go to work...
Van's obsessed with the white chocolate blondie spread from this place, jacked some for his plane ride and even bought a jar =p (fatty pants)
It was so nice seeing everyone =). Happy Birthday America!!!
