It was Mother’s Day! I love cooking, so I made something special for my mom. Actually, me and 2 of my sisters were the kitchen workers today. I made a salad. So I know my mom likes this shrimp and avocado salad that is served at the restaurant where I went to culinary school. Fine.… Continue reading Happy Mother’s Day 2012!
After hurting my shoulder, I had to take a 2 month break from culinary school. Hopefully, I’m fit for the kitchen again, because I go back to school tomorrow. Better start doing more cooking! Last night, I had company coming that I knew liked dessert. There wasn’t going to be many of us, so I… Continue reading Dessert
Recently, I’ve been busy for a variety of reasons. The most significant reason? I’ve gone back to school! 😮 Shocking, I know. But it’s probably not what you expect. Since April 11th, I’ve been going to culinary school in downtown Vancouver. It’s an 11 block program (each block consists of 4 weeks, so… 44 weeks)… Continue reading Back to School with Cheesecake
Last night, at about midnight, I was attacked while approaching my parked car at a bus exchange in North Vancouver. I was returning from downtown and was on my way home. I had just got off the bus, walked over to my car, put my bags in my trunk and was unlocking the driver side… Continue reading Attacked and almost robbed
I made a late lunch for my mom on Mother’s Day. Yup. There’s that omelet again! My mom wasn’t here when I made it last weekend, so naturally, I had to make it again. 🙂 I stuffed these with a lot of onion and mushroom. Not a bad thing, at all, but it certainly prevented… Continue reading Mother’s Day Lunch and Knife 4 Life
Yes, I’m alive. And I’m well. It’s been a long time since I posted anything…. I have 6 posts categorized as drafts, so it’s not like I’ve completely ignored blogging. ^_^ But wow, it’s been a while. This post will basically be some pictures, since it’s not hard to put together. I took some casual… Continue reading Gourmet
To access the Internet on my desktop computer, I must use wireless. Unfortunately, it’s about as far away from the access point as possible: opposite corners of the house and different floors. And the wireless card I’ve got in my desktop is a little old and pretty cheap. Basically, I’ve had to battle with a… Continue reading DIY Wireless Booster
Did this FlipNote animation on the bus, yesterday. The pumpkins, this year: I did the one on the left (least effort!). ^.^ And it should resemble the pumpkin in the FlipNote animation, above. 🙂 Happy Halloween!
Last weekend, I finally got a car. I’m not a car guy and know next to nothing about them, so I just mentioned some criteria to the car people in my family and asked them to tell me about it if they figured it was a good deal and fit my criteria. My primary criteria… Continue reading New (Used) Car: 1993 Honda Accord EX-R
