Wanderlust

I can hardly believe it, but I’m moving out of my Brooklyn apartment this weekend.
I’ll be back soon, but wanderlust got the best of me. I’ll be in sunny Vietnam all summer!

Taurin and I got a bottle of wine at Otto and snacked on cheese + bread dipped in truffle honey.

And finished it off with some olive oil coppetta – olive oil gelato, pineapple rosemary confettura, lime curd, passion fruit granita, pignoli brittle.

Chris and I went to the Parson’s Fine Art MFA show. I’ve been going to a lot of these spring shows this month.

And last but not least, matcha tiramisu!

As you can see, my weekends have been very indulgent, in direct contrast to my busy weekday work schedule. Not that I can ever defend my gluttony or workaholic tendencies, but it feels just right. Days are long and sunny, and I want to eat everything in this city. I knew New York was (un)healthy for me! But can you believe I’m going to be in Vietnam so soon?

    Brooklyn must be such an amazing place to live! But spending the summer in Vietnam is as least as awesome… Your photographies are as beautiful as always and I wonder how good a Matcha Tiramisù must taste!!

    Wow, everything here looks amazing. I love anything match flavored and have never seen matcha flavored tiramisu before. Looks delicious! So does the lobster roll. Hope you enjoy your time in Vietnam and are able to post beautiful pics of your experiences there too!

    your food photos are making me drool as usual Sewon 🙂 and wow, how exciting! Vietnam for the summer! I must say your lifestyle sounds perfect! I can’t wait until I have my education behind me so I might be able to do similar things. I am actually coming to New York in about 6 weeks for the first time ever and this post really made me all the more excited!
