Birds of a Feather

Mahjong and other weekend fun January 18, 2010

Last weekend, C and I went on an adventure up to Chinatown in SF in search of a mahjong set (which we were hoping to get our friend J for Christmas). Mahjong is sort of a combination between dominoes and gin rummy. We found a set, and had lots of other fun poking around all of the shops and restaurants. We drank boba, ate steamed pork buns, and tried on funny hats.

This weekend, we’ve been having fun learning to play mahjong, although there are a lot of rules…we have a ways to go!

Also, yesterday afternoon I tried my hand at making Kristiana Kringler, a Swedish New Year’s almond pastry that we didn’t have a chance to enjoy in Seattle over Christmas. ¬†There’s room for improvement, but all in all it was a success – it was all gone within 20 minutes at a get together we went to yesterday evening.
