East Coast Visit Recap

I went with my wife and some friends to the East Coast this past week for vacation. We stayed mostly in NYC and spent the weekend in Boston. This was the first time for me in both these cities. I am not a big fan of the NY lifestyle and for sure not a fan of the weather. But, the food was amazing and I had a great time. Here’s some of my favorite food places.

IMG_1007Chicken and Rice on 53rd and 6th. Tasted extra good as a late night snack. I heard the white sauce is mostly mayo. I hope that is not true because I used tons.

 

 

 

IMG_7448Katz’s deli pastrami sandwich. The meat just melted in my mouth. A little pricey but worth it.

We pretty much ate the whole time, but we did do the usual touristy stuff: visited memorials, museums, and caught a musical. We saw Once, which was spectacular. I really liked the movie and I thought the musical was even better. Some more pictures!

Being your stereotypical Asian left-brained pre-med, I never took time to appreciate the arts. I have missed out on so much. During the trip we saw the amazing creativity that people are capable of. I was reminded by a friend that our God is a creative God, and we are called to go and not just steward the earth, but also to create as well.

And the whole point of all this creating is to point back to the creator. No one looks at a masterpiece of art and only praise the art. They give praise to the artist who created it. And we, as God’s creation gifted with seemingly unlimited potential of intellect and abilities, reflect God’s wisdom, power, and beauty in who we are and what we do.

So whether we are making a mouth-watering meal, painting a portrait, composing music, designing a building, or simply writing an email, doing your homework, or making a blog post, we can bring glory to our creator God by doing it excellently.

How can you reflect God in your everyday life?

“For we are God’s worksmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10
