Another wonderful weekend is over! I felt it passed so fast that I couldn’t savor it fully! I guess this is a sign that I’m having a lot of fun! 😉 On Saturday evening, a new friend invited me to his apartment for dinner. I wasn’t expected too much, but when I arrived… a table of amazing dishes were ready! He spent the whole day cooking!!! 😆 Wooo!!! A guy cooking a whole day for his friends!!! That’s wonderful, isn’t it? 😉
chinese stir-fry shrimp
steamed lobster! I have 3/4 of it!!! 😯
eh… I don’t know how they’re called 😦 but it’s a typical dish in china.
fish cooked with chinese pickles
korean dish: kimchi with tofu
not very pretty but definitely delicious chicken
the chinese group and there were also a italian and a german guy, a brazilian and a lebanese girl! such an international group!
we drink a lot! red wine, white wine and korean rice wine, from 7 to 12! 😯

Meeting new friends is my weakness. I’m confident in many arenas of life, but friendship is not one of them. I feel insecure with new and old friends. With new ones, I’m afraid that I’m not nice and interesting enough to carry a good conversion, therefore to make them like me. With old ones, I’m afraid of not doing enough to consolidate the friendship. But recent years (since I moved to US) I noticed some changes. Even Star notices that too. I’ve became more open, more willing to meet new people and find each of them interesting in some extend. I also learned that you can’t make everyone likes you and you have to accept this. And finally when a friend is not behaving like a real friend to you anymore, no matter how much you want it to work, you NEED to let it go. It doesn’t mean you don’t do your best to keep it, but when you’ve done enough, it’s ENOUGH, forcing any relationship is harmful.
“Understand that friends come and go, but with a precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps between geography and lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people who knew you when you were young.”
A brilliant quote from Mary Schmich
Have a nice Monday! 🙂
Tomorrow I’ll post about running.
