I’m not a person who reminds about past often, I live in the present and looking forward to the future. But sometimes it’s good to do a quick recap of life to fully appreciate what we have now.
I remember when I was a kid, we (me and my parents) lived in one room (<150 square feet). Three of us together, a full size bed, a sofa, a table, 3 chairs, a wardrobe, a TV had to fit in that room. We shared the bathroom and the kitchen with another family. A little crowded but we were happy. Then we moved to Argentina when I was 9 years old, again we lived in a room with only bathroom and no kitchen. We survived happily again. Now, I live by my won in a 600 square feet one bedroom apartment. My parents live in a well-decorated two bedroom apartment in Shanghai. They’re happy but I stressed out often. But looking back, I was we’ve accomplished a lot to where we are right now. I need to be more grateful and be confident that future will be even better. :)
After a long day (between working, cursing, napping, snacking and finally figured something out), I treated myself with a good meal. I’ve been eating poorly during the day and hoping to cover all my nutrition needs at night. Mindless eating have been more often. :(
Look this mini kitchen gadget that I bought in San Francisco for steam little amount of food.
2 min later, steamed YAM was ready! :)
I finally opened the package of sauerkraut that I brought from Germany
a spinach & black fungus salad made with soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil and sesame seeds
curry salmon… my latest favorite combo for salmon using this
all together. What I call a balanced, colorful and delicious meal! :)
white fungus as dessert!
and before bed, a bowl of lotus. A MUST every night! :D
