I had some left-over ingredients from yesterday's rice meatballs. So I made some more rice meatballs today, and by the way made some bread. I don't like to stay in the kitchen but sometimes I like to cook something for a change. I consider myself efficient in food making today. After photo-taking, the food will go in the refrigerator and wait for their call.
我曾经想过，我是喜欢做菜的人吗？NO, No, No! Not at all. 我做面包是因为外面的面包吃了会胀气；做汤圆是因为大陆没有鹹汤圆；包粽子是不想吃到味精太多或不新鲜的黑心粽；平日做菜呢，是懒得出门浪费时间，也不想吃错餐厅肚子痛。
This morning when I woke Winston up and pulled the curtains, I found this incredible scene: two suns, so clear but so unreal. I doubted it might be the result of the window reflection or my dream, so I opened the window to make sure. I took many pictures to record this moment.
Of course they are not 2 suns. The other one is a reflection in Gold Chicken Lake. This is the first time I saw this. Don't know how many others had the same luck as I did to witness it. Can 2 suns mean 2 sons to me? I do hope to have one more kid, but I prefer a girl. I know I am too old for this dream!
10 minutes later, the reflection became to blur...like a lantern.
Christmas holidays are right here for the westerners. Chinese long break will be in February for Chinese New Year. I have conflicting feelings for the holidays. I like to visit the family members and friends who I don't see for months or for years. But if I have to do all the gathering everyday or every meal during the holidays, I would feel sufficating and so comes my fear toward the coming holidays. I've tried to veto the proposal of spending long time in jammed traffic for a short visit to the sightseeing spots. Shouldn't the breaks be real breaks? Fortunately, there are not many long breaks in a year. I feel the normal quiet days are the best breaks for me.
I became to swim regularly since this summer. I can feel the improvement in my physical condition. Everytime when I was in the pool, I felt thankful to have the opportunity to swim in a nice hotel with pleasant environment around, especially in this cold weather. I know there are many people living in poverty without enough food or protection against the freezing weather. So I feel sorry and hope those who suffer will live a better life.
