I'm sitting on my patio with my visiting friend, each of us immersed in our phone or laptop, tired after a day in the city. We had very late lunch (or was it early dinner?) at Great NY Noodletown, the Chinese restaurant where people go after drinking till nearly 2 AM. Tell me I will be okay after eating steamed flounder and rice noodles with veggies and taking tastes from my friend's plate of beef and hand-made rough noodles, and after not doing cardio but walking around for hours. I know I will be okay.
Afterward, some Jack fruit and rambutan on the patio that we bought from the street vendors on Canal. I wish I'd bought dragon fruit and lychees, too.
