On the Road Again, Part I

I have recently done some traveling, and there is more on the way! Today's excerpt is regarding my visit to Empire Buffet IV in Michigan. I must say that while the original Empire Buffet was a swashbuckling high-seas adventure, the subsequent sequels had left much to be desired. Empire Buffet IV: Try The Dim Sung, returns the series to its thrilling beginnings and leaves you wanting more! It's a good thing it's "All you can eat!".

The menu there has the best Chinese Zodiac Placemats I have ever seen. The fact that I can garner career advice while shoveling in the Sesame Chicken is really an idea whose time has come. I personally wanna know what I can do to change my career advice to secret agent! (Reminder: I was born in the year of the Dragon.)
