The first time was about 5 months ago. And yesterday look what pop up on my google reader :shock:
so I appeared in the Businessweek and the guy called me “A new name” :lol: I love this nickname. If you follow the link, you’ll find the article that I and two BIG economists wrote, a must read essay according to Tom Keene ;), about a paper we published recently.
I couldn’t stop smiling the WHOLE DAY!!! It’s like a Big confidence boost… something I really need at the moment. All the stress that I’ve been having lately, the morale down-hill experience, I almost forgot what I am capable of. When I complain to Star, he wisely told me: You’re wonderful, you just need to find the right spot to SHINE! :D He’s soooo right, isn’t he? We’re ALL WONDERFUL!!! Don’t let anyone or anything make you doubt about that!!! :lol:
Breakfast was enjoyed reading news and watching the man working :)
The usual suspects: peach, homemade bread, avocado + LC and “poached” egg
I’m trying a new method of making poached egg… so far no success… but I keep trying ;) That’s the attitude, right?
Work can’t be done without tea and nuts. My recent favorite nut is pistacho! It’s not the nut itself that I’m interested, but the action of peeling it is de-stressing ;)
I got my first shipment of baker’s must-have from King Arthur. There was a free shipping deal so I order more flour, unsweetened coconut meat
and sourdough starter
I can’t wait to make more breads!!! :lol:
Lunch was leftover pizza
and some steamed broccoli with marinara sauce for extra veggie
I wanted sweet dessert, so I dig into my candy pot
and found these two japanese candy. They’re sooo cute :D
More work but not very productive. I had cramps (yes, that kind) and couldn’t focus. So I remember a traditional chinese medicine recipe for that: ginger + brown sugar.
cut peeled ginger in small pieces, add 1 cup of water and bring it to boil for 5 min
I didn’t have brown sugar, so I used normal sugar. Heat 1/2 cup of black rice & lotus seed milk
“medicine” can be tasty too ;)
I was debating between going for a run or rest at home because of the cramps when I got an email from a friend to go for an happy hour. It was an easy decision (maybe not very wise), I went :)
Two hours chatting and two glasses of red wine in (hoping that it will facilitate blood circulation and ease the cramp), I start feeling dizzy. By the time we finish dinner at Vapiano, I was exhausted. I came home, washed my face and went to bed. People says red wine helps with sleep. Yes, just fall into sleep, but not keep you for long. I guess… I’d better keep away from alcohol.
Q: Do you drink alcohol beverage? How does it affect your body?
I just order 12 2 oz. pack Sahale Nuts for $15.66 following this instruction. Fall is approaching, it’s time to load on NUTS!! :lol:
