    Yesterday I had a simple teri burger and thick fries from The Gazeebo, the odd restaurant tucked inside the downtown Macy's. Last week, all I remember is hitting Wo Fat for dim sum. This week, until payday, I think I'll be stuck with the 99 cent menu at Wendy's again...

    Salad bar at Yummy Food Court, UH-Manoa, yesterday. Might do it again today. I always put too much stuff in that bowl, can't finish it all, and since it's charged by weight, I really should get my act together and save a few pennies.

    Back to Wendy's and its dollar menu today. I took orders and picked up for the whole office. $20 is a lot of food at that price! I went with the usual: Jr. Bacon Cheeseburger and a Caesar Side Salad. My coworkers are bonkers for their small Frosty, so I think I'll try that next time.

    My New Year's Resolution was to lose weight. It's been hard to get up every 5:00 am. to go for my walk and exercise. I lost 24 lbs, and feel great! I'm going to eat fried butterfish in watercress soup for lunch and asparagus with a dash of mayo! I haven't had a soda since New Year's Eve and don't miss it!

    Yesterday was a mini breaded porkchop plate-lunch from L&L. Very puzzling, that option. Sometimes I get three porkchops, sometimes two, but yesterday only one. Granted, it was larger than usual. I wonder how they decide how much to put in the box?

    (Their mac salad is SO boring.)

    Could be the size as you mentioned, weight or not enough, which they should have charged you for a mini plate! The mini only consists of 1 more scoop rice most times.

    After yesterday, only a plain manoa lettuce salad with vinegarette dressing.

    Char siu and stewed noodle at Mini Garden in Chinatown, my usual dish. Got a brief education in feng shui, as the restaurant apparently demonstrates many of its principles. (Their new location opens on March 3!)

    Is that the one by the entrance? Try their Dry Look Fun Noodles with Roast Duck/Char Siu combination. Onolicious! Thanks for the info about thier opening March 3rd. I hope the owner's sister is doing better now that their moving places. They believed that the current resturant was on evil ground...it's the exact place where the Chinatown Fire started years ago.
