Finally, I caught up with Sung, Roger and Julie in NY. They had just gotten back from DC and looked pretty thrashed as they sat in the hotel's lobby where I was staying.
We decided to get Vietnamese food, which happened to be one block from the hotel. The food wasn't too bad all and all, but the Pho was the weakest, I must say.

The filming in Beijing is going relatively OK. I say this because you never know until you have it the can; finished and back home.
Speaking of which, I really miss home which is rare when I'm location.
