Happy Sunday! The weather is so nice today is Southern California (70°F), so it’s a perfect day to relax and make a cup of French Earl Grey milk tea. Earl Grey tea is one of my favorite teas. It’s a tea blend traditionally made from black tea with the addition of oil of bergamot. Today, I’ll be using French Earl Grey (a blend with added rose petals) for my milk tea.
Sunday is usually my stay-at-home day – cleaning, watching shows, and cooking. But on this day, I had a strong craving for Japanese ramen – probably from watching so many ramen videos on YouTube. So, when a friend asked in our group chat if we wanted all-you-can-eat sushi, most of us were unavailable. So, I suggested ramen since it would only be us two going out to eat. Of course, planning last minute we went to our usual spot, Shinsengumi Hakata Ramen.
I ordered my ramen with extra bean sprouts, a soft-cooked egg (onsen tamago), and spicy miso paste.
After we went to Macchiato in Monterey Park. We were lucky enough to get the last open table – there are many high school and college students studying in this cafe. I ordered my favorite Potted Plant Macchiato, which is made of coffee and cream, and topped with whipped cream and Oreo. This is one of my favorite drinks, and I always recommend this when I bring my friends.
My dog is the most tired on Sundays. He had a long weekend at my parents house barking at all the neighborhood cats. When we’re back at my apartment, he’s instantly a couch potato.
Sunday is a day where I like to relax and be lazy before the start of the work week. With the exception of grocery shopping, I don’t like going out too much on Sundays. It’s a day where I get to lounge around my apartment all day in my pajamas, cooking and spoiling my dog. I usually try to do all my errands, and catching up with friends on Saturday. Now that I’ve done all that, it’s time to relax.
Having to wake up Monday thru Friday at 6 am everyday can be exhausting. This past Saturday, I also woke up at 6 am because my dog’s grooming appointment was at 7 am – I don’t know why I chose that time. Today, I finally slept in until 9 am. I woke up with my stomach growling as well as a Maltese sleeping on my stomach haha. So, for breakfast I decided to make some eggs, sausages, rice, a small salad, and miso soup.
