Seattle + OOTD #2

September 21st, 2017

My husband and I recently took a short trip to Seattle from the 15th to 18th! We went for a friend’s wedding and stayed a couple extra days to see other friends we haven’t seen in awhile. I’m not the best at keeping in touch, so I was glad they still wanted to meet up, even though we haven’t seen each other in 6 or 7 years.

The Sights

We’ve visited Seattle a couple times before, so we focused more on seeing people than sight-seeing this time around. We did have a bit of time to kill on Friday, so we hung out in Gas Works Park. It’s a park by the lake with a lovely view of the city across the water.

What I’m Up To, #10

November 28th, 2016

I just had a 5-day weekend, which felt nice! We get two days off for Thanksgiving, but with the office so empty on Wednesday, I just took that day off too. Of course, I told myself that I should be productive during those 5 days, and well, it never quite ends up that way, does it?

But! Between playing too many hours of Diablo III and watching Yuri on Ice and Westworld, I managed to spend some time on my hobbies the past couple weeks. (Both shows are sooo good, by the way.) So here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

What I’m Sewing

Before you think, “uh Cat, didn’t you already show us this?”… this is not the same Pokemon Go jacket I posted about on Halloween! I decided to make another one, except I altered the fit, made the stripe on the sleeve thinner, and changed the lining fabric.

Favorite dishes, part 2

April 30th, 2016

When I wrote part 1 of this series two years ago, I meant to keep it going and post again with more food porn photos. I guess I forgot about it, but that’s ok because I’m back with part 2! Better late than never, right? This time, I’m going with the theme of Japanese food, which is one of my favorite cuisines. A couple are even from Japan! Like…

Katsu curry – Go! Go! Curry! (Tokyo, Japan)
I love curry, and Japanese curry is one of my favorites. We’ve tried many places in our city, and their Japanese curry just hasn’t hit the spot. We end up making it at home to hit that craving, but the one we make at home still isn’t the same as the one we had at Go Go Curry. There’s something different about it, especially in its consistency. It’s not as thin and sticks to the rice and katsu better. Plus, the katsu itself was good – crispy and thin, just the way I like it.

By the way, Go Go Curry is also in the US! They have locations in New York and Massachusetts. Unfortunately, I haven’t been to any of them yet, but I’d like to try them one day!
