A hamster in my head!


I feel like having a hamster and a wheel in my head!!! ๐Ÿ‘ฟ I woke up at 2.30AM ๐Ÿ˜ฏ because my mind gave up telling “it” to stop racing ๐Ÿ˜ฆ Read and snacked, an hour later I went back to sleep. At 5.30AM the race woke me up AGAIN!!! ย Furious? Yes! Why? Because I started writing programming code, and that’s an avoidable side effect when I’m very into it! Definitely not Fun! So, I am praying to finish it ASAP!

On the positive side, I got the package from my secret valentine friend Jamie, and I was AMAZED by how thoughtful and sweet she is. Look what she got for me? ย Two books about Happiness, yogi tea to help me relax and foodie fav snack larabars!


These gifts are chosen carefully, I can tell that definitely. She didn’t know about my blog but stopped by to read carefully about me, what I like and what I need. I really like every single item, I can’t wait to read these books, thank you so much Jamie!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I made steamed sponge cake on Sunday night, so I was excited about breakfast!


accompanied with soy & peanut milk!


After a long day of work, I rewarded myself with a nice balanced meal: sauteed lettuce with brussels sprouts


salmon marinated in mustard, soy sauce and brown sugar


microwaved japanese yam



The yam is DELICIOUS!!! Dense and just slightly sweet. I love it! I think if you’re like me that want to restrict intake of beta carotene, try YAM, it won’t dissapoint you! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Q1: Have you received any thoughtful gift lately?

Q2: What’s your favorite tea?
