July 9th. Our only group activity was a luncheon at 2pm in Sarona market. The lunch went well with some amazing pasta and we didn’t get lost. We were smart enough to follow a big group. (I also paid for some data on my phone to make sure I do not stray in the city again.) (more…)
On July 8, around 4 o’clock in the evening, I, as a participant of Israel Summer Business Academy with Washington University in St. Louis, arrived at Ben-Gurion airport with the rest of my program fellows. The flight was 9hr 44min, which was doable compared to the long flights I have to take to go back to HongKong from the U.S. (more…)
I apologize for the late update. Here are some other dishes I made in the last couple of days. (more…)
Every Tuesday and Thursday when I got off my classes at 1pm last semester, I would always scuttle back to my room with my head kept low. I didn’t want attention and I didn’t want to make conversations. There was simply one reason behind my unusually introverted behavior: I was getting “hangry”.
It took me a while to I realize that I suffer from severe “hangry syndrome”. It was surprising to see myself losing patience, losing my sense of humor, losing interest in whatever whoever has to say when I am hungry. The change in my mood before and after a meal is VERY drastic.
So that makes me wonder what causes this feeling of “hangriness”? What is happening to my brain?
I love seafood and shrimp is just one of my favorite.
This recipe is easy to make at home: only requires green onion and garlic as ingredients other than the shrimps. You could certainly switch up to peeled shrimps.
Last night’s dinner was nothing but authentic Chinese.
I made congee with abalone and some sea snails, and stir-fried some bitter gourd. I understand that the ingredients used in both of the recipes are quite unusual, but those are pretty common food for Southern Chinese. Feel free to take a look or skip ahead!
As a huge egg lover, it has been a shame for me to have never been able to make a perfect breakfast omelette. But no more! The history has been rewritten! I made it! (more…)
Seriously, I have too much time on my hands now.
It’s been the second week of summer and without a constantly growing stack of work and papers waiting for me to finish, I feel so great and …. bored. Having anticipated this dilemma, I have set two goals for myself: 1. Write blogs to document interesting moments and independent inquiries 2. COOK.
On May 11, I was moving out the last couple of boxes from my dorm room to the public storage unit I rented with my friends. Being a freshman with no cars, I had to use Uber to move around. That day, I met Alexander. (more…)
