Me and husband were invited by Jade to go take photos at the Richmond Carnival at Landsdowne on Sunday evening.

It was a good distraction of sort, but it was bitterly cold holding onto LX3 — my fingers felt like they are gonna drop off any moment ^^; — forgot to wear gloves ^^; But we know that being out in the cold for just an hour or two is nothing compared to what the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan are experiencing… We are also worried about our friends who live in Japan, and hoping for all the best with what’s going on now ^^;/ Ganbatte Nippon!

Last year, we bought a sack of long grain rice as it was on sale, and it feels like it’s taking a long time for us to finish it ^^;

I missed Japanese (short grain) rice, so I got tonkatsu don from the food court just so I can eat some Japanese rice lol!

When I moved to Canada, I was lucky that my mom in law taught me to cook some dishes. One of them being a soup – Pork shank with carrot and green radish soup, I know it as 青红萝汤 in Cantonese.

I find this particular soup quite easy to make, just need some time to prepare, and a “space pot” – 太空锅 , I mean a “Thermal Magic Cooker”. XD

I documented most of what I did when I prepared the soup this afternoon, must mention tsunamidelta for poking me for it in the first place — I hope this will help you out if/when you do try to make the soup! ^^
