I first blogged about the first Din Tai Fung opening in San Diego this past February for this fall, but apparently that has been delayed:

“While most of its big name new restaurants are lined up to launch in Westfield UTC this fall, it will be a slightly longer wait for dumpling specialists Din Tai Fung. As part of the shopping center’s multi-million expansion and remodel, there will be plenty of fresh food and drink options to celebrate come October including Shake Shack, Great Maple, True Food Kitchen and more, but a rep for the Taiwanese chain confirmed that it will not be opening in Westfield UTC until 2018.”

I’ve only been to San Diego for work, so I don’t think I’ve ever been to the Westfield UTC mall, but from Google Maps, it doesn’t look too far from UC San Diego (less than 3 miles).

While we have been hearing over the years about how how Asian Americans don’t hike or visit national parks, it’s great to hear about Asian Americans who do hike.  In this story about the the Eagle Creek fire, a hiker talks about an Asian American named Emily who unlike most of the hikers in the area, was extremely well prepared and helped many of the more than 140 hikers who were cutoff from easy escape by the fire.  They had to stay overnight and embark on a 14 mile route to escape the flames.  Says stranded hiker Merribeth Midtlyng:

“She was an Asian gal named Emily, just six years in the country, and she’d read the book ‘Wild’ and knew all the things to bring on a hike,” Midtlyng said. “She had a headlamp, food, shelter and water purifier and was so helpful to a lot of people, helping them get safe water to drink.”

I saw the movie Wild, but I don’t think that I could have helped anyone if I was there.  The trail in the movie ends at the Bridge of the Gods across the Columbia river, and the fire started by some moron with fireworks is around that area.  Some of the area near Multnomah Falls burned but is considered mostly unscathed.  I visited the area a few years ago and found it strikingly beautiful.  With the current hurricane disasters, the fires choking the Pacific Northwest are going unnoticed by many.

We have written a number of articles about how Asian Americans actually do hike.  It’s good that “Emily” also likes to both read and hike, which benefited of some of those trap by the awful fire.

Instafriends, those two. Here's the old strip!

HEY, I'm really sorry about the down time yesterday! It's been about two years since we've had a breakdown like this.

It's really uncanny timing, because I have some enormous news: FINALLY, The Complete Girls With Slingshots hardcover collection is available for preorder on Kickstarter!

The website is having some trouble adding images and I'm not even sure this update is gonna post, so I'll leave it at that for now. But I'll be sending out a more in-depth newsletter tomorrow, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Wait, are you ON the newsletter list? The signup is literally right below this post! Just scroll down and add your name. :) I'm frugal with my mailers, so it won't be overwhelming, I promise.

Dear Frank,
Yesterday I went to Barnes and Noble to get a book on infertility (my husband and I have been trying to conceive for almost a year and have reached the point of needing medical appointments). I picked up a PostSecret book while there and clinging to that book is the only thing that kept me from crying while I had to look through the pregnancy and baby type books to find a book to help my hurting heart. I didn’t find what I was looking for but I bought the postsecret book and wanted you to know that it brought me comfort.
