Travels: Luke's Lobster, NYC

Before my trip, I had made up my mind to try one more of NYC's famed dishes - the lobster roll. Research online reaped a few possible options but I eventually chose Luke's for their mayo-free version and it also does not hurt that they are friendlier on the pockets too.

The cosy shack-like restaurant was doing brisk business at 6pm on a Sunday evening. But orders were taken and served fairly quickly.

US$15 (excl tax) got me a soft roll toasted and warm, slathered with just a bit of mayo and butter, and a dash of seasoning on top of sweet juicy chunks of fresh lobster meat. I enjoyed the natural flavors of the lobster and glad it was not too heavy, leaving room for other to-eats on my list.

Various locations, including

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
