Seattle Part 4




The Fremont Troll! :)




Exploring the troll's nostrils hahaha.





I love how Seattle has so many pretty flowers and landscaping everywhere!!








Winery tour













Din Tai Fung in Bellevue.  O M G it was SOOOOO GOOD!!!  The hubs and I both agreed that it was even better then the one we went to in LA and in Taipei!!  If you aren't familiar with Din Tai Fung it's basically the brand name Shiao Long Bao restaurant from Taiwan.  They have like a dozen restaurants in Taiwan and scattered throughout the rest of the world. 



BAHAHAHA he smiled for my camera!!! niceeeeee!










Halfway through the meal Kathy said this was by far the best meal we had in Seattle!


Hehe while we were eating we looked out the window and this is what we saw!  HOW CUTE!!  We were saying that they should put one post it in every window on that side of the wall so it would look like a real pac man screen hahaha.


Another Tom Douglas restaurant!


The in house made maple pork sausage was insanely good.  I gave one to the hubs before I even took a bite of mine.. and then I seriously regretted giving him a whole sausage link. AHAHAHAH




One of the best trips ever!!  Thank you Seattle for showering us with fantastic weather, Kathy & Kim for flying out from Atlanta, Shirley for flying out from San Francisco and Ian for showing us an amazing time!! 

SEE YOU GUYS IN GERMANY!!

  27. great pictures as always, i love your leopard shirt. Wow how long were you in seattle for? Germany next? Craziness! take me with you! i want to travel the world too! haha

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hahaha you guys are such goofs :D The nostril pic reminds me of the mini Statue of Liberty statue (if my memory serves me correctly) inside the museum where I also stuck my arm up her nose, hahaha. Granted I was a little kid back then, but I can also see myself doing that now if I went to visit, lol.

    Dim sum...... I need to try! I remember the one from Taiwan but haven't tried any in the States. Are there any in Nova that you would recommend? China Garden in Rosslyn was ok I thought... and I can't really think of any others, haha.

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow nice photos! it looks like a great adventure :p i wish I was with u! and i love ur leopard print cardy :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. what an awesome trip! boy, you're going to germany! what a ride! can't wait to see the pics once you move!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Are you wearing a maxi dress or skirt? Either way, you look so pretty in it with the leopard!

    O-M-G, I cannot even tell you how MUCH I love Din Tai Fung!!! There's a version in Toronto (that I don't think is part of the official chain) but tastes better than the official LA one and my mouth waters at the very thought of it. My favorite part is how you can see the yummy broth through the translucent skin -drool-

    Hubby and I are aspiring foodies. We just recently went on a mini road-trip to try out some restaurants featured on the Food Network :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. How fun is that troll? No way, Din Tai Fung that is better than the original in Taipei? The ones in Singapore are ok but we think the Taipei one is yummier!
    Hi from India!

  37. Whoa, that troll is huge! o_O You're telling me this DTF is better than the one in Taipei?! (I don't like the one in L.A but am willing to try a different location)

    (I've tried the Kiehl's avocado eye cream but felt it was a bit heavy. I think it's just me though b/c I know it's pretty popular. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh my gah! Those xiu lung bao look amazing. I walked past DTF both in HK and Korea (if I remember correctly..getting my vacation mixed up) and now I seriously regret not going in :(

    Hungry now.

    Lovely pictures though!

    ReplyDelete
  39. YUM all that food looks so good!

    ReplyDelete
  40. yayyyyy!!!!! wineeeee!! :) looks so good and chic! and i'm sooo happy you got your fix of DTF!!! :) (not the jersey shore version either) lolll! the way they make it and displays looks so nice!

  41. hi babe! jelly polishes are so easy to work with, they have a sorbet, shiny sort of consistency and dries super shiny! like candy! lol and you can find demure vixen in most essie racks at beauty supply stores or ulta, or wherever there's essie racks and seche vite is sold at CVS or ulta or even sally's beauty supply! hope that helps! and if you can't find anything lemme know!

    ReplyDelete
