Life: weekend happening

It was a long weekend for me. I thought I would get bored being alone, but it turned out to be quite eventful. Let’s recap πŸ˜‰

Friday: I spent the morning organizing old letters/cards/pics and I found this


wooo!!! It was taken in 2000, and I was probably 20 lb heavier. It was quite shocking how much did I changed during the last 12 years. I think as we age, the fat content of our face gets redistributed elsewhere and we look slimmer.

I did manicure. I didn’t have any spring/summer color, so I used this intense beige one.


Breakfast continued to be the same. For lunch, I made a salad using canned wild salmon that I have bought 6 months ago.


butter lettuce, cucumber, tomato, bell pepper, tofu and 1/2 can of salmon. All dressed with 1 tbsp olive oil and 2-3 tbsp the amazing balsamic.


as dessert, two argentinian chocolates



At night, I met with some friends at Cafe Asia for dinner. It’s a place that offers all kind of asian food, chinese, vietnamese, japanese, indonesian and singaporean. I had a Yum salad. Thai style spicy salad with lettuce, cilantro, onion, tossed with fresh chili, garlic and lemon juice, and squid.


It was way too spicy for me, but had all the squid and 1/2 veggies.

And a tom yum soup with mushrooms and shrimp.


which was just okay.

After dinner, we went to a Cuban Music Show.


It was my first time going to a cuban music event. The music is so lively, people were dancing like crazy! πŸ˜‰

My friend Huihui and the husband of another friend, who’s cuban.




  • Same breakfast
  • Home duties: ironing and organize clothes for spring/summer.
  • Lunch: same salad as Friday.


  • A much needed nap. I went to sleep past midnight and woke up at 7:30 😯
  • Reading a new book
  • A BBQ party from 7-8:30pm
  • A dinner party from 8:30 – 12pm.

Some of my best friends just became Doctors on Friday so a little celebration for them. πŸ™‚ They did a good job preparing food for like 20+ people. IMG_0874

and I made the dessert, choco-nuts petit fours


It was nice catching up with friends. I also told them the news and they were all very happy for us. πŸ™‚ They were not surprised though because among my friends I’m someone who’s extremely decisive, whenever I say I want to do something, I do it right away! πŸ™‚



  • Groceries. I went to four stores: chinese supermarket, korean supermarket, Tj’s and Whole Food, and under the rain!!! 😯 Fortunately they were all very close by.
  • Lunch


A black rice, corn meal, red dates and white fungus porridge




sautΓ©ed chinese greens, black fungus and tofu


  • Another amazingly enjoyable nap.
  • More reading
  • Planning to have another salad with grilled shrimp for dinner! πŸ™‚

Star is coming back tomorrow!!! Yupi!!! πŸ˜†

Q: What’s your favorite part of the weekend? For me, meeting with friends, late breakfasts and lunches, naps and leisure reading.

  1. Yep, whenever I look back at pictures when I was younger I had a lot of weight in my face as well. Strange how that works. Now it’s all in my stomach!! Darn you hormones.
    Glad you had a nice weekend, Coco!

    You sure did have a full weekend! Your squid salad sounds so tasty! I’ve never tried kimchi but really want to. Have you ever made it?
