It’s breakfast time in NYC and I could really go for a Loco Moco like this one from Sam Sato’s on Maui, right about now. Loco Moco, a local favorite in Hawaii, features rice, a hamburger patty, and over-easy egg with brown gravy. It’s 6AM, working on thesis, now that’s loco.
Fresh fish fix. Pronounced “po-keh” this island favorite I something I miss whole away on the mainland. Shoyu poke from Sack ‘N Save is a must have when I’m on Maui.
This past week has been busy thanks to midterms. All well worth it because now I’m back on Maui to enjoy a short spring break. Pictures from my travels from New York to my final destination, home. (NY-LA-MAUI)
Since September, I have been working on my thesis for my graduate program at Parsons. There is a lot more that more going on behind the scenes of this video, but as I move forward and develop my ideas here is a little glimpse of what it is all about. For a look into my thesis explorations check out my thesis blog: Matsumoto Thesis
Many ups and downs in the last couple weeks brought me home again to Maui. It got me thinking about how I am very privileged to study away from home in NYC. At the same time, I never felt more relieved and “at home” when I was with my family. I may go coast to coast, but my roots matter most.
On January 2, 2012 Vicky the cat was attacked in our garage. She broke her jaw and was hospitalized for a few days. A year later we celebrate her recovery by feeding her some fresh sashimi, or raw fish—a true lucky cat!
Here’s to the first post of 2013. It’s just before 1AM on January 2 and after a full day of eating “ono” (delicious) food with family and friends, fulfilling all the Japanese traditions its time to say goodnight to the first day of 2013. Looking forward to see what the next 355 days have in store for me. Happy New Year everyone!
Time flies when you’re relaxing. Loving my vacation from the big city.
Merry Christmas to all and to all a goodnight.
