treated to a lunch by my student because she wanted to give me a christmas present but didn’t know what to buy. it was very sweet of her but i’m happy to take her out. i made her make sure there’s no onions and no green onions in my dish. it’s bizarre she’s so scared of me, yet she likes me and always wants to hang out with me. that logic is puzzling, but i must be doing something right

day 1179 – dumpling master

image

it’s all about aesthetics this afternoon as i’m perfecting cooking dumplings and making sure it’s cooked to the perfect shade of golden brown. i may be a picky eater, but require nothing fancy nor expensive, just need basic food that’s done the right way. chicken dumplings paired with banana got me through another saturday shift; keeping it simple just like any ordinary saturday

resolution series: [eleven] eat clean

there’s a saying “you are what you eat” and i couldn’t agree more. understanding the value of eating well goes a long way to staying healthy. i have always been told you must eat regularly and not skip meals so not to ruin your body clock. too late it’s already ruined and that’s exactly why i have chronic stomach issues. a lot of the times it can’t be helped because when i get busy cramming for deadlines, i lose track of time and forget to eat my meals. this is one of the things i have put emphasis on in trying to correct and make better. i can’t deny i am a picky eater and there are many things i choose not to eat simply because i don’t like it. but there’s also i lot of things i choose not to eat because my digestive system just doesn’t want to accept it. it has taken me a long time to realize my body actually doesn’t like starch all that much and that my digestive system is very sensitive to oily foods. simply reducing starch has made a positive impact to my well being, and the bonus is my stomach has thrown less tantrums. i still have a lot of inexplainable cravings at the most random times but i am trying hard to reduce and control that department. not saying i cannot have them, but just need to keep a close tab on it and only use it sparringly. staying hydrated still troubles me since i can never consume enough water to maintain what people call hydrated, and no one will believe me when i say my body operates just fine with less water. my conclusion is: eat like shit, feel like shit

day 428 – portobello

mom preparing to cook some delicious looking giant stuffed mushroom for dinner tonight and still blown away by how big these fungi can become. no denying i am a picky eater and i don’t like to eat the chinese brown mushroom but i will eat portobello and other kinds of mushrooms which according to mom is suppose to be very healthy. i guess all mushrooms are to some degree
