June 11 was our first day of class in Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya (IDC).
Before class started, we were required to read the book StarUp Nation by Dan Señor and Saul Singer. In the book, it mentions that Israelis have a unique spirit of chutzpah. As Señor and Singer interpret it, it means “gall, brazen nerve, effrontery, incredible “guts,” presumption plus arrogance such as no other word and no other language can do justice to (p.30).” Continue reading “Fourth day: About Being Whatever”
July 10 was the day I forgot I have a body part called the neck. I forgot my neck exists while I was spraying sun screen before I embarked upon about 5 hours of walking outdoor. I thought my Florida base tan was able to protect me. But no. I have never burned so bad in my life. Continue reading “Third day: Old Jaffa”
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.) Continue reading “Second day in Tel Aviv: Along the beach”
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. Continue reading “First day: Arrival at Tel Aviv, Israel”

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! Continue reading “I Finally Made a Perfect Omelette! & Lotus Root and Chicken Kidney Soup 鸡肾莲藕汤”
Yesterday, I tried out the recipe of Furikake Salmon from Allrecipes.com. I apologize for the sad-looking pasta: I made them a bit too early and they were getting sticky by the time I get them out onto the plates. Continue reading “Furikake Salmon”
