Update from LookyTasty.com

There’s been a lot going on the past few weeks, so here’s an update. The other week, I was faced with a heartbreaking laptop disaster. After countless efforts to recover my old laptop, I ended up with a 13″ X 9″ 5 lb paperweight and having to pick up a new laptop. It’s sad to...

Heading On A Caribbean Cruise

How exciting! I’m going to be on a boat! I’ve been busy, working hard, so that I can take some time off for relaxing fun and exploration the Caribbeans this week. It’s going to be my first time on a large cruise boat, so I’m definitely thrilled. I’m actually not too sure of the details...

Taste of Chicago

So while I was in Chicago, I went to check out the Taste of Chicago at Grant Park in downtown Chicago. It’s an annual event, pretty much this huge food festival where lots of local restaurants sell their specialty dishes!! In fact, I believe it’s the world’s LARGEST food festival. This year it was held...

Destination Chicago: Tank Noodles

Right off the Argyle station stop on the red-line of the Chicago CTA, we come across what is known as New Chinatown (well, it’s more like Vietnamese-town, really). I love Vietnamese food.
