My latest obsession... Ochazuke. Ingredients:
Brown rice for carbohydrates, the low glycemic index type to avoid the sugar rush and also fiber.

Nori for its high protein content, with more usable protein than any other seaweed. Nori contains high quantities of iodine, iron, calcium, vitamins A, B and C and carotene.

Edamame for it contain poly- and monounsaturated or "good" fats, with no cholesterol and also being high in minerals, protein and fibre.

Anchovies for its polyunsaturated fatty acids, calcium and selenium. Being a smaller fish meaning that it has shorter lifespan spam and contain lesser impurities in its body.

Green tea for antioxidant effect. Need to say more?

Some instant dashi powder, chilli flakes and parsley later and you'll get a nutritious and delicious meal. Bon appetite !

The Grief

I read the message 3 times to make sure that I get it right. I'm still trying to digest the news and I still can't accept it.

Though it did not happen to me, it happened to someone close to me. We both are dog owners and we love our dogs to bits. Their antics never fail to put a smile on our faces. We became alive when we talked about them.

Even though I know that they leave me someday but I can't control it but to cry at the thought of it. It was such a horrible feeling.

I don't know what else can I say to make my friend feel better because I have no idea if there's any words that can make me help me feel better when that unavoidable event unfold onto me someday.

Rainbow bridge is our only hope....

Flight Confirmed

Buffalo! Here I come!! I've finally managed to book my flight from LAX to BUF today. Been trying for the entire day yesterday on AirTran site and I don't know what's wrong with it. Anyhow, I got it from Southwest this afternoon. An early flight, 6:10am to be exact. Meaning that I won't be getting any sleep before that, only after the transit in Phoenix I can snore my way through the flight.

I can't wait to meet up with Jenn as soon as I can jump out of the plane. We got to know each others in some virtual farm and from there we communicate through Facebook for years. And I can finally meet this amazing lady in person. Life is great.

Then I'm going to try out those famous buffalo wings from Anchor Wings. I read about it somewhere and Jenn had recommended the same place too. Oh... How I love buffalo wings! And also Niagara Falls, I can't miss that out.

I'm in a dilemma right now, to stay with host family or at the hotel? Will it be bothersome for them to prepare everything and I only stay for a night ? As for the hotel, I'm freaking out a bit after reading some stupid ghost stories last night. I was at the supermarket today looking for sea salt and rosemary. I read about it somewhere that it can help to repel those negative energies around me.

Being paranoid as usual...

I Forgot What Was I Doing

Immediately after the flight from Amsterdam landed, I rushed and rushed like mad to catch another flight to Singapore. The only thing I can recalled in this trip was my runny nose. Luckily for these pictures. Seems like I'm having a mild case of amnesia nowadays .

Day 9: Saying goodbye to Prague

Day 8: Chill out enroute to Prague

Day 7: Shop til you drop in Vienna

Had a panic attack which left me with hot flush episodes. It was supposed to be chilly day but I was feeling like I was on fire.

Already feeling like I'm going to drop right there and then.

Day 6: The View of Vienna

Blue or Red

There are two pills. One is blue and the other one is red. The blue one can help you to erase a painful memory forever and the red one can help you to revive a beautiful memory for just one day.

You can only choose one. Which one will you choose?

A dilemma. A beautiful memory could make you yearn for more of it. It's an addict on withdrawal mode. One day of living in this beautiful memory will never be enough. The thought of going back to reality after it's over is simply unbearable. It could be a thousand times more painful to revive this memory than experiencing it for the first time. I rather have a painful memory erased at this point.

Blue or red?
