Summer coffee

This morning I could smell the coffee roasting in North Beach when I woke up. Probably because it was moist in the air. All day has been cool because of it.

Plants seem greener at times like these. It is very nice.

I had a cappucino in mid-afternoon, and I'm still buzzing.

Dow sa Bao

The steamed black been buns at the Eastern Bakery are the best! If you've never had one, please go! Now!

The owners aren't related to me. They're name is 關. And I think they're 粵人, not 客家.
So no. Not family.
I have no interest, fiduciary or otherwise, in the flourishing of their enterprise.

I just love their black been buns (dow sa bao: 豆沙包). Their chicken buns (guy bow: 雞包) are also VERY DELICIOUS!

Um, I guess you might not know what I'm talking about, huh? Black been paste is sweet, a little like chocolate, but not very. A steamed bun is a comforting warm snack. Guy bow are steamed buns filled with chopped chicken, black mushroom, and a slice of pork sausage for good smell. Some people get weird and peel off the thin skin on the outside, but you can shove it into your face without bothering about that.

I am Kermit the Frog!

Yes, I know that isn't true. You needn't rub it in. I just don't know what else to say. This is the first post, and I geuss I'm supposed to introduce myself. But what am I to write? If I simply put everything about me on my blog, the people who will probably read it will be stalkers. That isn't why I'm here.

I live in San Francisco, and I eat Chinese food. this makes me happy. Someday I want to buy cigarettes. I am not interested in booze.
