Weee

Another food delievery service, mostly Asian groceries @ sayweee.com. Easy to shop and check out. I got $10 off from a friend’s link and no shipping with $35 in total. They have $2 tip to the drive as default but you can change. The delivery was schedule two days later, between 2pm to 9pm. It arrived at 4pm.

Every Plate, food delivery

I’m trying this food delivery service. $23.93 for three meals, shipping included. The package is nice and solid, and the single flat ice pack on the bottom is neat. Because it’s winter, all things arrived in good condition.

1st time: ordered on 12.29.2020 and delivered on Jan 5.

 

The two small carrots look old, tired and are chipped at the root. I usually buy the giant yellow sticks, so kind of not used to the tiny one they provide. All three meal are ok, good but I probably won’t order from them again, except, I forgot to cancel. ⇓

2nd time, auto delivered on Jan 11.

Flushing, 2020


This year, 2020, is dominated by covid-19 pandemic. Although I don’t know anyone who has it but few did get laid off as the economy worsened.

I don’t go to Flushing as often, maybe every other month. Three of my go-to eateries on Main Street, a restaurant, one makes chive pancakes and one meat buns are replaced.

  1. Chaozhou (?) 潮州 became Xing Fu Tang 幸福堂 Happy House.
  2. Tianjin Pancake 天津馅饼 became Wenzhou Chicken 温州熏鸡
  3. Meat-buns 肉包子 in the old Golden Market, is under renovation.

 

From Prince Street to 40th Road. I got a few chive pancakes from Corner 28 (a separate vendor) and the quality is poor, cost 25% more at $2 each.

Snowy park

Plastic, is a huge problem: the wintery wave pushed up all wastes in the park, mostly are plastics.

The little girl looks pretty surrounded by the snow. The phone booth survives but the ice machine/storage is gone. A dead fish.

The first snow

The first of the season, with a decent amount.

A walk after Thanksgiving

After an hour of tennis, I walked a little in the park.

Caumsett Park, again

The temperature reached 75º and not a cloud in the sky. We stopped at Powles marinaLloyd Harbor before Caumsett Park, the second time in less than a week, and took in the sunset at West Neck Beach. A little on the rock yoga

The farm group and winter cottage

 

The horses and the Master’s Garage – bathrooms.

 

12:37pm

We took RT from the main house, then PL2 to the beach to picnic. There are many bikers with fat wheels.

 

There are as many horse riders

We walked on the beach to the tip

1:53pm

 

The Lloyd Point. The water is crystal clear … unfortunately, no swimming allowed.

We returned via fisherman’s parking lot – permit only.

   

… We stopped by the West Neck beach and took in the sunset.
