grilled eggplant & tomato/ mango with shrimp paste went great with fried “bangus” <milkfish> \ halo-halo was a real treat! / eat-in at asian|filipino grocery store in ronkonkoma just 15 minutes from stony brook
soup nourishes body & soul / it comforts & provides solace \ it provides community & an outstretched helping hand / as in the folktale “stone soup” & the ubiquity of soup kitchens in both good & bad times
“soup for syria” is a fundraising effort / here’s hoping that a peaceful, diplomatic solution is reached & ends the suffering of the Syrian people
after doing college admission events at stony brook, headed to koreatown in manhattan for some great korean food <kunjip, very close to penn station> / “banchan” the little side dishes that you get before your main meal is like getting many treats \ my companion’s favorite was the pickled radish kimchi <kkadugi> / mine were the seaweed & mung bean sprouts \ the korean bbq was wonderful – tender & perfectly marinated!
