Milkie Milkie Bingsu Cafe at Edmonds – The Last Dessert Before Corona Shutdown


Happen to visit here at last Saturday after grocery shopping (well it is more of restocking) and this dessert end up being the last dessert we had at cafรฉ (with ‘very distancing’ in the store) for foreseeable future period. -Just a day before governor’s order of restaurant shutdown.

Nice Bingsu with fine & crispy ice but their ice was not milk based, so I wondered why they are calling themselves as Milkie Milke

As US never opens up any infection source details of confirmed cases on Corona -only the numbers of confirmed cases and deaths by county with news of random people getting confirmations, I found myself feeling more nervous on being outside. Especially noticing the continued growth of confirmed case numbers (now Washington state just passed 1k) Now, I think the dessert I had at last weekend seems crazier & stupid idea than few days ago..

Also, after almost-two-weeks of ‘stuck at home’, staying at home feels more comfortable as fear of being outside becomes bigger than the challenges of ‘stuck at home’

Maybe this pandemic might end up creating lots of new 2020 Otakus who will refuse to get outside and stay at home with repetition of work & sleep after all things are settled.. (and I might be already one of those.. ๐Ÿ™‚ )

About a week of 100% WFH – I am so glad that I brought the extra monitor and mini bay to home to connect to my laptop ๐Ÿ™‚ long term WFH without extended monitor would have been a nightmare ๐Ÿ™‚

This longer term WFH has been imposing lot of fun challenges – had to face lots of messages and emails (which would have been a direct conversation at office) and extra emphasis on communication -which is always tough..

Back to continuous “in room” working and sleeping..:)

Need to remind myself on the fact that I can do skiing at this close location from home is still a big privilege (with this stupid skill level ๐Ÿ™‚ ) – and I should be thankful on this although the snows are sticky/wet.. ๐Ÿ™‚


1/25 is extremely dangerous and everything is safe from 2/1?!


What the….

Is this ‘precaution’ because of the fact all of the kids on this class being Asian or am I thinking too far? (Come on if you were to do education business in Eastside, you gotta be mindful that 90%+ of your students are Asian..)

If I am not going too far, – shouldn’t they think about the potential ‘over thinking’ like I just did, before making a decision and sending this texts?

I am wondering whether I should respond that “I wish you don’t have any infections with this precaution and enjoy the healthy & long life and can you share me the basis you believe why Feb 1st works while 1/25 doesn’t for our safety” ๐Ÿ˜›

Seattle Winter Storm 2020


Stuck at home for 2 consecutive days

This used to be always once in every other 2-3 year thing but now it is becoming more like an annual thing.

Also, I totally lost any hope on City of Bellevue – Bellevue City officials hardly clear the snows if it is not at Downtown. I would like to invite them to our neighborhood and define “passable” as they claim every primary neighborhood streets are. Maybe need to petition for separated city for South Bellevue like South Bellevue, Factoria, or Newport Hills?

Maybe one positive note is that I fully utilized last winter’s snow shovel purchase which arrived after the peak of snow storm
