[Part 3 of a series recapping the trip to Beijing that I
took at the end of my summer in East Asia, followed
by my last day in Korea and plane trip to the States.]
Having spent the previous day on the hustle and grind,
Paco, Yuelang (悦朗, our designer), and I spent Tuesday
chilling at the crib while the others hit the store to put
Zhang Yi aka Crazy Yi aka The Chef.
Allen had an iPhone, a mark - particularly in the
stratified Chinese economy - of baller status.
李悦朗 grind hard, sleep tight.
YALE tees are apparently the next big thing in
streetwear... still i doubt i'll be seeing SoHo-lines of slim
selvage jeans-donning kids outside Campus Customs.
Paco cooked dinner that night, so around midafternoon we headed out
to run some errands, including a stop by the local market.
After the trip out to purchase provisions, we dropped by another
supermarket, located in the bottom floor of one of the high-rises in
Paco's neighborhood, to order drinks, snacks, and staples (rice), to
be delivered to our door later.
We entered through the back door to see a young girl washing off
cleaning supplies in a small sink. A barely-queen mattress rested in
the corner nearby, evidence of a multiple utility occupancy.
After a mad home-cooked dinner, Paco, Yuelang, and I
kept grinding on the poster for the Season 3 release
The man's a genius... this joint took shape in less than a full evening
The end result. Bust Out 走起来！
