Food For Thought: Chile Peppers

   Today, I was able to take another food adventure but also had the great pleasure of taking this food venture with my dear sister, who popped a visit up to Seattle. Heading to a quaint area of Seattle known  as Wallingford, my sister and I had the opportunity to eat dinner in a cute little restaurant with some tastefully good Mexican Food! Though the lighting was a bit dark, leaving it difficult to see our food, the music and the candles really set the mood for a comfy restaurant. Right off the bat, the food was great! Though personally I would rather go to Azteca since there is more variety, the price was reasonable with most dishes being at an average price of $9-11. Next time, I will try to shift away from getting the "Taco Dinner," which I found to be not as tasteful as I expected. Whether it was the tortilla or the meat, which was chicken, it really wasn't a big hit for my sister and I. Yet, don't think the restaurant was a total flop, since my sister ordered a fantastic meal which I would highly recommend. It was an enchilada meal stuffed with roasted potatoes and cheese, talk about YUMMY! Check it out food lovers, if you're looking for some authentic Mexican Food =)

   I will go ahead and provide a link to the yelp review of the restaurant, which also has photos so check it out my food lovers! ---

Who woulda thunk it?!?!

   Who would have thought that Rafael Nadal would give a total beating on Roger Federer in today's semifinal showdown in Miami. Not only did Nadal cream puff Federer with an easy 6-3 6-2 victory, but Nadal played with power, good court prowess, and consistency. All of it was enough for Nadal to earn himself a seat in the finals' against Serbian Novak Djokovic, who is currently 23-0 for the 2011 season.

   My prediction: Nadal giving Nole his first loss for the season!

Food For Thought: Ugly Mug

   Ugly Mug is a great Cafe on the Ave right at the heart of the University District. A nice environment that gives you a homebody feeling, it really takes you into a comfortable setting away from the fast pace of Seattle city life. While I was there I had a yummy pumpkin tomato soup. This soup was not only delicious but it had a perfect taste that really knows how to warm a belly, especially on a cold spring day!

Dismal Day for Andy Murray...

   Today, tennis player Andy Murray suffered another bruising defeat in the Sony Ericsson Open. Though he was not to long ago marked by tennis commentators as a player with commendable game play that could allow him to win Grand Slams, he still has yet to achieve such heights. Now a far flung number 5 player, Murray has since battled to reignite a flame that can bring spring in his game, which he bitterly lost after a defeat down under by Serbian Novak Djokovic during his quest for an Australian Open title.
   Murray's defeat today toppled another upsetting defeat which came from an American qualifier Alex Bogomolov Jr. in two sets: 6-1, 7-5. This is not the first upset the Scotsman has tasted, since last week he faced an upset by another young American player Donald Young. Though his slump is no doubt attributed to his repeated chances of a Grand Slam being chased away by tennis's greats, if Murray really wants to taste a win he needs to buckle down, play with aggression, and have an attitude to WIN.

I can't wait till June 11th!!!

   I cannot wait till June 2011 rolls around and I can finally say "Yup, I'm a UW Graduate Baby!" Not only am I super stoked but I'm ready to get the ball rollin to see what the future has in store for me. Though the game of the "Big World," seems daunting and scary, the unknown makes it even more exciting!!!
   All I want now, is for spring quarter to start and for the procrastination to take a back seat just for the next good 10 weeks or so, so at least I can bring my A game. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here, because this SENIORITIS is not boding well for my fitness or brain!!!
