Vintage in North Carolina







On a recent trip to North Carolina to visit my friend Sabina, we discovered this vintage store. Lots of stuff was packed in there. This place would be something for the "American Pickers".

Hope that Hurricane Irene does not do too much damage as it moves on tonight and tomorrow along the eastern shore. Stay safe if you live in this area.

My friend Andrea has the cutest photo of her and her dogs on her blog. Check it out here.

I made this fantastic Quinoa salad. Thank you Jennifer for the recipe.

Have a great Sunday!

Dinner for Two



We had a lovely dinner at our favorite restaurant Maza.

Seeing the movie "The Help", makes me want to read the book by Kathryn Stockett. A very powerful movie.

 Love the soundtrack "The Living Proof" by Mary J. Blige.

Had a very busy week at work. Getting everything ready for the start of the new semester on Monday... No plans for this weekend, just relaxing.

Take care!

Early Morning in Chinatown






Nine Dragon Wall



Chinatown in Chicago is a very busy place on a Saturday morning. Lots of hustling and bustling.
We love visiting there, always new things to discover.
* * *
Chicago is a great city with a beautiful skyline and so many quaint ethnic neighborhoods.
If you are looking for a place to visit, put Chicago on your list. You will not be disappointed.
* * *
Have a look at my friend Jennifer's blog. If you need inspiration or some delicious summer salad recipes, you are at the right place. I am trying out the quinoa salad tomorrow.
* * *
The 60's movie I have been waiting to see is finally in theaters, "The Help". I am looking forward to seeing it tomorrow.
* * *
Happy weekend!

Teahouse




On our recent visit to Chicago we stopped by Chinatown. Tried out Saint's Alp Teahouse. I LOVE their passion fruit green tea. They also have lots of varieties of taiwanese bubble tea. And the food is pretty tasty, too.
The first Saint's Alp was founded in Hong Kong.

We are very busy at work. It is the end of the summer semester and the fall semester starts on the 22nd. I will not have much time for posting, but will try and visit all your blogs soon.
* * *
Wishing you all a great weekend!

Stay cool, the heatwave is still around, at least here in the US.

P.S. Check out my friend Anna's blog. She has an amazing photostream!
