Food in Mouth

Maialino Review: Happy hour at Maialino

The 2011 NBA Draft just concluded. The odds of predicting which player will become a future Hall of Famer is very low. You have a better chance to guess at who can maybe become an All-Star, although not much better odds. Just guessing who could become a rotational player is difficult. But the odds of picking a guy who won't pan out? Really really good. Ordering from a restaurant feels like that sometimes. There are words that will trigger interest in your brain.

With that in mind, I just wanted to take two moments to say, HD DVR was the greatest invention ever, second next to whoever came up with the Victoria's Secret fashion...

After getting a delicious breakfast at Fu Hang, one of my uncles took Steph and me to this tourist attraction just outside of Taipei called Jiufen. It's an area that's on the side of a tiny mountain and there's a little alley way that's full of food and souvenir shops. It's a pretty popular destination and luckily my uncle was able to drive us. We started off at a popular stall that served up fish balls. It was a no frills kind of place and they had long tables with tiny benches so you had to share the space with other diners. They had a small kitchen which...
