Review: Nom Nom Ramen

It has been brutally cold lately so I stopped by Nom Nom  for a delicious and warm soup.


What went well: the staff is always nice and polite; the soup is delicious!! This is my third time coming back….it’s a rich pork broth with seasoning, meat, egg (for an extra dollar) and ginger roots. Yum!!

What was so-so: the place is usually packed at lunch time but seats are freed up quickly so the wait is not too bad

What went wrong: nothing, loved the soup!


Padma Lakshmi and Stairs Workout

It’s winter and running outside is last on my mind so I have been looking for alternatives to stay fit.  One alternative is to walk longer to commute to and from work.  Now, I recently found an interesting article with tips from Padma Lakshmi, the Top Chef host.  I do not know much about her except for a scar she bears and the fact that she looks real compared to other models.  You can somehow relate to her looks.

I do not watch the show (maybe I should) but I found it interesting that she advised to use stairs whenever possible…I guess I should stop the laziness with the escalator…Let’s do the flight of stairs next time!
