When the the spring term comes, the cherry trees are blossoming for us to take a walk in waterfront park.

This year I can not take pictures of Cherry Blossoms at Portland’s Waterfront Park since I returned Taiwan for work.

Eating yummy food is my way to release the stress.
Asian Fusion Restaurant @Fresh Field
During the weekend, I had a chance to visit my lovely grandma, and her birthday is coming soon. We went to Asian Fusion Restaurant at Fresh Field to celebrate her birthday.

During Chinese New Year I went to Taichung City twice. I had good food when I was there.
The fried rice was delicious, and I was sure that I gained lots of weight before I start to work.

Le Naturalisme is a small place for you to have a cup of tea and a piece of cake.

過年期間之前的同事和好友特地和我在高雄相約下午茶,因為這間是數字週刊報導過的茶屋,也是少數春節期間有營業的店,所以我們可以好好的邊吃甜點邊喝茶聊天,有些東西菜單上沒有寫出來,但是服務人員會在手機上用實體照片作介紹,我們一行四人點的甜點中最受好評的是栗子抹茶千層。

It was the second time for me to have hot pot at the same place in February. Not only the price was reasonable, but also various fresh food gave us several choices.

I used to read The Oregonian and watch Katu News to get local weather and events for Portland. Now I can only do it on line since I accept a job offer in my home town.
To live in Portland for five years, I do have a lot of sweet memories in town.

This year we got snow early, and most schools were closed Thursday, December 15 due to weather and road conditions. From the news, it snows that Portland-area snowfall causes traffic gridlock, crashes, bus problems.
There is no fun at all in this ice cold white world.

Since my best friend relocated herself to CA, I thought that I don't have any chance to have homemade dumplings any more, but I am luck to have yummy hand made dumplings over the weekend.

自從好友因為工作的關係搬到加州之後,我已經有段時間沒嘗到自家手作水餃了,剛好來自東北的好友心血來潮想要復刻家鄉豬肉餡水餃,有口福的我當然要去她家湊熱鬧,而且很神奇的是他根本不需要量杯去稱麵粉的重量,直接目測倒入盆中的麵粉量然後讓我打一顆全蛋進入盆中,接著又指揮我家一點鹽巴和少許的水,很快地就有待醒的麵團成形。
