In our ongoing #BtownAudit series, Kelley MBA students share some of their favorite things in Bloomington. Enjoy these top picks from Cying Wu, MBA’16.
Looking for an authentic Chinese food, Red Restaurant is the place to go. The restaurant does not have a noticeable sign outside. Most people would drive right pass by it. It's a nice cozy restaurant that hides many delicious dishes. The diverse menu at Red Restaurant can definitely satisfy every flavor that you are craving that day – from braised fish with tofu, sautéed greens, and beef with hot and spicy cumin sauce to the hot pot, fried rice, and Asian sweets. If you have not had a chance to travel to China, Red Restaurant would certainly bring out the authentic Chinese vibe through their delicious food and welcoming staff.
Santa Claus, IN
Ever watch a Christmas movie that has a scene of Santa Claus’ hometown? Well, Santa Claus is in Indiana, my friends. I first heard of Santa Claus, IN when I interviewed a candidate for the GLOBASE Vietnam team. I have never been to Santa Claus, IN. But, I would like to visit there one day. I believe it would be a great place for kids to adventure – visiting the Santa's Candy Castle, exploring Santa Claus Museum & Village, and stopping by the one and only Santa Claus Post Office. Unfortunately, I did not get a chance to visit while I was here. But, this is on my bucket list for when I come back and visit.
If you asked me what animal I would want to be, I would tell you a puppy or a kitten that never grows up. Most of the time, people would tell me there is no way for this to happen. Lil BUB, she is actually the cutest kitten that makes me smile. Lil BUB was born in Bloomington, IN in July of 2011. Since then, she has become one of the most famous cats on the planet. BUB was born with a multitude of genetic anomalies, which all add up to one of nature's happiest accidents. Looking at her YouTube clips online, it is hard not to notice her that she is full of wonder, always calm, and surprisingly comfortable and at peace in just about any situation. Her videos always keep me thinking that if she can overcome all her disabilities and troubles, there is no reason for me to stumble by my challenges in life.
