The Past Week + A Hilarious Video of Robinson Cano! XD

2 May

It’s been a week! I’ve been BUSY with a bulk (100,000+ words) medical editing project. Besides very little (2 or 3 hours) sleep per day, I was literally working. =’= I even had meals while working though I had live Yankees games on while processing the editing files, too. Ha. Anyway, here is a hilarious video, more like a Laugh Out Loud trick, about Robinson Cano on Jimmy Fallon Show. Enjoy! 😄

 

 

AL East Standing (as of April 20th)

21 Apr

I know it’s far too early in the season for this. Only 19 games out of 162 have been played but hey, splitting the series with Rays in Tampa and leaving that “house of horror” with a win, shouldn’t we have something to be cheerful during this off day before heading to Boston to have a 3-game series? Here is where we stand (as of April 20th) in American League East Division:

Must-See Triple Plays!

20 Apr

 

If you just want to see the Yankees’, slide the time to the following:

1:52 ~ 2:15 (Yankees’ Triple Play in April, 2014 initiated by Solarte)
4:11 ~ 4:25 (Yankees v.s Okland, initiated by A-rod)
5:35 ~ to the end (the UNFORGETABLE one. NOT the “TRADITIONAL” 6-4-3 triple play)

All of the Yankees’ triple plays happened when C.C was on the mound! Coincidence, huh?

 

About Restaurants/Diners I’ve been to Recently

19 Apr

Two are in Tsim Sha Shui and the other two are in Yuenlong:

 

#1. The Chinese/Taiwanese restaurant on the 4th in the shopping mall The One:

→ Food recommended: steamed buns, pan-fried dumplings, glutinous rice cakes, fried pork chops, spicy steamed dumplings.

→ If you are a Taiwanese soupy noodles lover fond of the well-renowned beef noodles, wanton noodles or sour & spicy noodles, I guess you’d like this place.

→ pan-fried dishes: It was a pity that I couldn’t get to try any. They were mostly sold out by the time I got there =.=a…I would very much like to try their San Bei (Three Cups, sesame oil is one of the 3 sauces) Chicken or Spicy Chicken Dices (Kung Bao Chicken) and sweet sour pork.

 

#2. The Chinese restaurant on the MTR level of K11 Art Mall:

‧Menus here are similar to those in the Chinese restaurant in The One. I particularly liked shrimp steamed dumplings, stir-fried beef (very tender!) with green onions and ginger, eel fish slices with teriyaki sauce and spicy pan-fried chicken dices.

 

#3. The Turkish diner in a small alley of Yuenlong:

→ This little dinner in a small alley of Yuenlong is definitely a hidden pearl!!! When I found it on Google search, I was so surprised that in a quite suburb town Yuenlong, there is a Turkish restaurant located in a small alley intersecting with the main road! There are English menus & English speaking waitresses available so even you don’t speak Cantonese, it’ll be totally fine~ XD’

→ The diner is a tiny place. I guess (less than) 20 customers will make the little place full~ ^^!

→ Dishes recommended: Turkish doner, Turkish fried chicken (different from western fried chicken), Arabic samosa and stir-fried rice (what Tony Stark had when he got captivated in Afghanistan but I can’t remember its name…=.=a)

→ Desserts exist only on the menus but are never available! 😄 According to the English-speaking waitress, they’ve never had desserts available so I can’t help but wonder why on earth they even bother to list those yummy-looking desserts on the menu? =.=a

 

#4. The Chinese diner on the main road (Castle Peak Rd) of Yuenlong:

→ A little family diner opens 24/7 on Castle Peak Rd, Yuenlong.

→ I love steamed fish there!!! There are 5 choices and all are cheap and cheerful!!! I also like their dim sum, including spring rolls and steamed shrimp buns.

 

David Letterman – NY Yankees Jeter, Pettitte & Posada

18 Apr

It’s an old video in 2009 when Yankees won the World Series championship! Andy Pettitte, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada were invited to David Letterman’s Late Show. I’ve seen this video a lot of times and came across it on a Yankees beat writer blog today. So, why not post it here & enjoy the video again? XD~

 

 

Jeter is quick-witted, isn’t it?
