Hello! I haven't blogged in over a week. I have been feeling too lazy for the past week to do any blog related work. I did however get my flight to Japan booked and made reservation for my hotel I am staying at. Anyway, here's a little update on my birthday.
I went to dine at a restaurant called Momofuku Noodle Bar at Queen and University right next to the Shangri la Hotel. The food was kind of expensive, $15 for a bowl of ramen which wasn't anything special. I got the pork belly ramen and two pork buns (which was a famous appetizer from the restaurant) I was researching on some new restaurants to eat at for my birthday and came across this one. What's interesting was that the restaurant originated from New York and they have 3 floors each pertaining to serve different food. The noodle bar was located on the first floor serving mostly ramen and snacks. On the second floor they serve dessert and pastry like cookies and cakes. On the third floor it's a bit more fancy where they serve food like seafood and steak. I thought the concept of the restaurant was pretty interesting but overall the food is just average. It's more of a place to go for the "atmosphere" and experience.
I came into work today and my work booth was decorated with signs and tissue papers hanging down with a birthday card on my desk. So sweet and kind of my co-workers! And to top it off, my manager let me get off work an hour early because I had lieu time from a meeting I went to a few weeks ago. =D
