What the Duck is Wrong With Me?: Lu din Gee

I've always suffered with depression/anxiety phases, but luckily...i've always had food to keep me going. And up until now, i always thought i wanted to do this for a living but lately, i've been having second thoughts. It's like i just don't give a duck anymore. Maybe it's because i'm about to graduate high school and barely getting hit with that "oh crap, i'm about to graduate, now what?" phase, but whatever this is, i hope it's not permanent.

I finally tried Lu Din Gee's famed Roast Duck and this is what i'm talking about, i don't know what to write anymore! The meal was delicious, the contrasting textures of soft flour, crispy skin, tender lean meat and crisp cucumbers. The converse flavors of savory rich duck, sweeeeet nectareous Hoisin Sauce and refreshing slivers of onion: kind of like an asian burrito. And with my increasing fancying of Duck, this was one of the best meals i've had. But i just don't know how to write out my feelings towards it like i used to.

For my sake, i dearly hope this is just a phase.

Every writer/blogger has their moments of creativity block -- and no matter how endless it may seem, it always comes back.

Nonetheless, glad you were able to check out Lu Din Gee.

Well "converse flavors of savory rich duck, sweeeeet nectareous Hoisin Sauce and refreshing slivers of onion", got my palate interested, so all is not lost!

Never been to Cielito Lindo's live Mariachi, where is it?

an asian burrito, hey? that sounds fab to me. Perhaps it's the hot and wacky weather--ever read Joan Didion's essay about the Santa Ana winds?
