Since last weekend was crazy, I vowed to make this weekend super lazy and stress-free. So I went back to my two greatest comforts: Chinese food and nature. Which makes sense if you were raised in woodsy Philadelphia suburbs by first generation Chinese parents. Growing up, bad days always looked a little brighter with some dumplings and a cool backyard to play in. Instant cheer up :)
I don't have a backyard, so I did the next best thing: spend some quality time chilling in a Nolita playground while snacking on Chinatown baozi (prefaced the night before by soup dumplings!). I even later made it to McNally Jackson, my favorite bookstore. (Thanks to Eunsan, my foodie companion, for coming with!) What are your personal comforts?
PS: If you're in need of a nature pick-me-up, you must watch this video. So calming.
