Feeling Refreshed .... Slept Well !


I had to work on some research on Monday.
It was urgent....couldn't sleep much then.

Felt lightheaded yesterday and went to bed early.

I woke up feeling refreshed. Found an e-mail from sister like good friend... saying " I tried to reach you since I am eating at Taiwanese restaurant right now, can you come ? "

Yes, there was also a record that she called.

Sorry, I was already in my dream...:)

This was my lunch today. ( I made it.)

Raw ham and pear sandwich. ( Lately I am into this combination.) The soup is made of sweet potato, celery, cabbage. I made veggie soup first with soup stock powder. Then add 2 tea spoonful miso. Then, added half cup of milk ! This combination works out well. For Japanese people, it may sound odd and mismatch. Yet, I think it tastes good and also healthy.

I need to go back to work again. Hope I can write some more later tonight ! Cheers!

Pear and Prosciutto Sandwich


The baby shower was pot luck party. I brought sweet potato salad and this sandwich. Before making it for friends ( and leaving my place) I tried the trial version, which was also good !

Just make thin slices of pear and lay on the sliced bread. ( Spread butter first.) Then add sliced Prosciutto ( or any raw ham) .


Sweets were also Cool & Delicious!


Look at these ! Impressive.
Tiger shaped ( and Dog shaped) eclairs. ( It is the year of Tiger.)

Also the tiger face is set on the cake.
This is also cute, perfect for the baby.
The family I met for the first time brought these two tiger sweets.



The last one is chocolate brownie that the MD friend made. ( Cute and girly.)


Baby Shower --- Baby Girl is coming soon !


Not mine. My friend's baby.

We gathered to celebrate our friend's anticipated baby girl and her mom.

As you can see, there were delicious foods.

Thai friend made authentic spring rolls and shrimp toasts. Creamy shrimp sauce with French bread, sushi, fried chicken with veggies, quiche, sandwiches, brownies, tiger shaped eclairs....everybody brought something.

Enjoyed meeting & catching up with friends.
I met some new people also. Time flies. Friends' babies were ( there were two) there, they are cute and looked like they understood what was going on. ( probably they did!). They did not exist when we did our first baby shower with this members......

Auntie Yasuko had to admit... no wonder she feels aging !!! ( One of our friends is anti-aging expert medical doctor.... let's ask her the tips! ).
