September has not been the best month for the blog. Ok, it's been the worst month for the blog, as this is the first time I am writing anything since August 29th. There are all sorts of reasons why I was not able to do any posting this month. Lack of finances plus not feeling well, add the high holidays and lots of family visiting, and that does not equal any eating under the 7. I've barely managed to get any writing or eating done at all this month, and I feel terrible about it, but life does not always work out the way we want it to, does it? I will continue along the path I made for myself, obviously I will not reach Flushing by January, a year into the blog, but I never really thought I would anyway, there's just too much to cover. I am thankful for what I've been able to do so far, and here's hoping that come October, I'll be hungry, healthy, and have enough to keep the project going.


  1. Sara, do not feel bad! I know how hard it is to keep blogging, especially when there are all sorts of things going on around you! Know that all of your readers are so grateful for all of the work you do! You've helped me discover new places in my favorite parts of Queens! I wouldn't have even known about Tropika if not for your blog! So I write this in sincere appreciation, from one blogger to another. If you ever want to meet up for some yummy asian food and tea, let me know!


  2. Thanks so much Ethan,I really appreciate your comment, it makes me feel much better!

  3. We were all on vacation anyway! I'm just glad I didn't miss anything. So yes, please keep it up. I'm discovering new places and visiting a few of my faves because of YOU!!

  4. Sara, why are you beating yourself up? You've done so much with Taco Thursday, and hey, life happens.

    Ethan's right, we readers are grateful for what you've done so far. And so what if you don't make it to Flushing in January? This was something fun to do, who's keeping a deadline?

    What makes me read this is not when you go, but where. And you, like Jeff Orlick, inspire me to rediscover the awesomeness of my home. Thanks for representing Queens!
