Day Trip to Chicago

The annoying alert of my 4:15 alarm kicked in as I woke up bewildered. You know that feeling when you need to hit snooze about 3 times before you stumble out of the bed zombified? Yes, that's the kind of morning i was having.

My 7:15 flight wasn't waiting for me... So, I better had get my skates on (in other words hurry up), showered, got a decent outfit together, booked the car service, got to the airport, blah, blah, blah, blah!

Anyway I arrived to Chicago safely, ran downtown, and had a little stroll at the beach before stuffing my guts with some food. In true (me) style I visited one of my favorite restaurants Lao Sze Chuan. (See what i ordered below). 

I had to rush to the airport attempting to beat traffic leaving with a doggy bag... Which i devoured at the gate whilst waiting to board. Im sure i looked like a pig!

If you're ever in The-Chi let me know what you think of it?
