So, walking back up Robson of course we had to follow up with our regular ritual of bubble tea!  Street Fighter+Bubble Tea = The best!

This particular location is tiny and doesn’t offer food (no salty peppery chicken nuggets? sad!), but it has a game station that evokes all kinds of childhood nostalgia!

Sure, more than 10 years later I still suck, but the boys think I’m cute for trying so hard ūüėČ

  One of the best value dishes at Bubble World is the Salty Peppery Chicken.  A large portion of salty, peppery, deep fried goodness in a bowl for only $5.25.  For $7.00 you can get all that with a big bowl of noodle soup!!  Salty Peppery Chicken with Noodle in Soup.

¬† After some bar¬†hopping¬†I definitely needed some dessert.¬† Luckily, D¬†knew¬†just the right spot: Spot Dessert Bar!¬† Seriously, the Japanese¬†know how to do it up.¬† Tiny little almost-basement space, again with the wooden tables and benches.¬†¬†With ice cream toppings like fresh fruit, cookies, foam, and other interesting choices, it’s too difficult to decide!!¬† Of course I’ve also learned that too much is not always good, so I try to stick to only 2 (maybe 3) toppings.

¬†¬†Condensed Milk Ice Cream with Caramel Popcorn and Chocolate Pearl Toppings!!¬† Accompanied with one Black Coffee and one Thai Milk Coffee.¬† The delicious milky sweet ice cream with creamy texture was so perfect with the caramel popcorn!¬† And really..I should have known better than to get chocolate pearls with cold ice cream…takes forever to melt, which is annoying….But it was still lovely!¬† I would totally come back for more~~!

  What a lovely evening!  Ate a lot of wonderful, delicious food and made a really cool friend ;D  Thanks for the fun night, D!

So the morning after my birthday I woke up ready to make the most of the day.¬† I had worked a long and full day the day before, but I wasn’t aboutt o let that get in the way of me celebrating my first NYC birthday!¬† I cleaned up¬†a¬†little bit so I could finally take pictures and show off the amazing studio I’m temporarily living in.¬† My temporary residence upon my arrival to NYC was this GORGEOUS studio apartment on the LES (Lower East Side, folks ;D) on the border of Little Italy and Chinatown on the corner of Mulberry & Grand.

I¬†still remember walking in and seeing the beloved and much coveted brownstone, hardwood flooring, large walk-in closet and big windows and just feeling like i stepped into a fairytale… ‚ô•

Afterwards I went for a little stroll around Chinatown.  Had a great dim sum lunch which included XLB and then hit up a big Hong Kong supermarket and got myself some treats!
