Day 1&2 : Winter Break 2011

When I studied for my gruesome finals last week, every time I felt that I couldn't focus anymore, I thought about what I would do during the winter break. One thing that I wanted to do was to update this blog =P I also thought about how breaks seem to end so fast. Sometimes when the break ended, I wondered what I've been doing during the break. So this time, I thought it would be a great idea to write a journal during this winter break. In the next 8 months, whenever I'm struggling with my MBA program, at least I could look back and assure myself that I already did my best to enjoy my break.

However, when the break is finally here, I feel reluctant to write as usual =P That's why I missed recording the first day. 

Anyway, this was what I did yesterday: cooking for my friend Keti who will leave California this coming Thursday. She is a very nice person ... and I will miss her a lot. However, I believe this decision is the best decision for both of keti and her husband, ricad ... and I wish them success in their future endeavors. Since she has been such a good friend, I really want to do something for her. To make long story short, yesterday I cooked my mapo tofu and invited both of them, plus our other good friend and her husband, to eat dinner at my new place. Ah ... the beauty of having your own place =) I really enjoyed the fellowship and I honestly felt sad because just when I have the luxury of having my own place, one of them is already leaving. No more fun couple dinner =( 

What's left of my mapo tofu =)

As for today.. I have another gathering with a different circle of friends. We're having our first round of annual crab party! I'm so excited =) Since I'm on holiday, this time I can help them with the preparation. I'm so bad with memorizing recipe but I hope I can learn how to cook crab by helping them =P 

Update: So we made two recipes, crab in oyster sauce and garlic butter crab.

I ate a lot that night! No more crab for the remaining winter break LOL

One of the thing that I also planned to do during the winter break is to study my marketing book ... however, I think I still have enough time to do that =P Fun things first, serious stuffs later *hahaha*
