Today is the first day of the Lunar New Year. All across Asia families are gathering, food is being prepared, business stops for several days and we in the western world don’t even blink—most of us anyways. I guess it’s fair since most of the Orient goes on with life when December 25TH rolls around.
We observe the Lunar New Year though. Last night we ate at a friends house down in Salt Lake and she cooked the most fabulous egg rolls, chicken salad (I love fish sauce which in itself deserves an entire post). The food was superb, and I should probably give a big thanks to Her (Mara) and family. They are great host. It’s kind of sad though as we went to church and no one knew it was even a holiday for over half the rest of the world.
The image above was my lunch/snack. Soy milk straight from the world famous Yong He soy milk shop (truly the worlds best). It puts our american grocery store brands to shame. Silk is no good, and the only one that comes close to the real thing is Kikoman soy milk.
On to more important matters. I’m upgrading my blog in the next few minutes and I don’t know what it’s going to do. It might crash the whole thing, but I think it will probably just screw things up so that my design will be all over the place. It will be worth it when the redesign launches though. Here we go.
