Well this was such a busy weekend. On top of the studying that I’m trying to accomplish for next week’s finals, Moz was over this weekend. I haven’t seen her in a few months because of school and all so it was a lot of fun. The first event we tackled was the McQueen for a Night event at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. My friends and I were all expecting the Met to be closed down for the college group specifically, but that didn’t happen. Dressing up eccentrically was a lot of fun even if we got a lot of odd looks on the way there. I really love…
We had an epic feast this past Sunday at our dorm. Everyone was required to bring something, preferably to cook. I ended up making a dessert: cinnamon apple puff pastry with creme anglaise – a recipe that I learned last year in my culinary elective! I did not think it would take so long to cook, but when cooking for about a dozen people, it ends up taking a while.

We’re also a little behind on our Ethnic Food Nights since two weeks before, we ended up skipping G for German because we could not find an affordable restaurant, we had Thanksgiving dinner this past Sunday as a group (post to come some time this week), and this weekend we’ll all be gone for Thanksgiving. Anyways, H is for Hungarian at Andre’s Cafe is probably my favorite. I had veal goulash with nokedli, which was some kind of noodle. I was very happy that Patrick, the Hungarian in the group, had picked it out…
F is for Filipino
Not too many pictures from the Filipino night. Basically, I brought home a lot of food on Saturday night. I thought it would be a lot more authentic instead of going out to eat at some mediocre and overpriced restaurant in Manhattan. Filipino dishes I brought: giniling, chicken adobo, beef steak, and palabok. Anne in particular really enjoyed it. On Sunday she ended up researching everything Filipino on Wikipedia from desserts to media/entertainment. We both found out that there is a decent Filipino restaurant four blocks away from the dorm. Anne really wants to try some halo halo. I will definitely check this place out soon, just so I am…
