Finally redeemed!

I'm back finally!! My blog was shut down by blogger for a while. Apparently it was inappropriate or it violated some terms. Weird, but at least things are back in business now. So much has happened since my last post. I spent my summer in China and NYC. I was on vacation in China for a month and then I worked and interned in NYC. My internship was at Deux Lux, a hand bag company and my other job was just office work at a clinic. Will post pictures of everything soon! Semester's almost coming to a close for me and thanksgiving's around the corner, I'm going home of course. My sophomore year has been going pretty swell. I don't even know where to begin, there's just too much to catch up on! But for now, I'm going to a post a recipe since I've been cooking a lot lately. I decided to not get a meal plan this year since I wanted to eat healthy and to improve on my culinary skills.

Here's a recipe of shrimp over rice with scallion, ginger and peanuts.

A close up of my kitchen

Bon Appetit!

Recent Events

I've been bombarded with school once again.. It's midterms week right now, but I'm doing fairly well. I only have 2 more left to go. Heading back to NYC in a couple of days for spring break but I won't be spending the entire break there. I'm heading to Canada for half of it. My grandfather hasn't been feeling too well, so my family and I are flying over to see him. Hopefully it's nothing major.. I'll try to update more during next week, most likely more food posts and maybe some venturing.

Recently I declared my major and I've set my heart on Environmental Design with a concentration in ceramics. I'm focusing mostly on product/industrial design though. I want to create products that are environmentally friendly and good for mother nature, yet gets the job done or even gets two jobs done at the same time. I doing a bit of ceramics cause I'm seriously in LOVE with the wheel. When I say in love, I mean I can't get enough of it, even when class ends I feel like I could stay in the studio for hours on end. I've been rushing to finish all my other assignments so I can jump into the studio again and make some bowls or pots.. ceramics excites me and the process is so soothing and therapeutic. I'll post some of my recent works from the class later on when I finish glazing them.

On another note, there was recently a jazz formal and my school. Which means I took some pictures of the fancy food they had!

Salad - Mixed greens with tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots and red onions with dressing and really good bread.

Apricot glazed grilled fresh salmon fillets on a bed of wilted spinach and topped w/sauteed shitake mushrooms, fried rice - soy lemon butter sauce.

It was a lovely night, my friends and I dressed up and there was a live jazz band.

Another Food Affair and Winter Lights

Had korean food the other night in the city..

Side dishes

Seafood Tofu Soup, I wish you could see the clams, shrimp, and mussels but it was drowned beneath the broth..

Scallion pancake and rice on the side.

Later on, I wandered around Chelsea and Flatiron and came across Madison Square Park..
This is an installation piece by Jim Campbell, it's absolutely stunning!

The piece is called Scattered Lights.

It felt absolutely magical walking through the piece.

Sorry for the poor picture quality but here's a moving image, of the side. You can actually see shadows of people walking within the lights! So cool !!

Here's more info about Jim Campbell and the installation pieces he has up at Madison Square Park,

Interior space

NYC has real chilly lately, so while curling up in my bed I decided to take pictures of my room. Here are some random shots.

My window, the sand in the bottle is actually from a beach in San Francisco a few years back! 

1/4th of my closet.. the rest is back at college.. 

 My memory jar, every time I go on trips or anywhere special, I keep trinkets of my adventure here. There's key chains, ticket stubs, 3D glasses, pins, buttons and so much more.

Photos I hang above my bed,  I took them while I was in DUMBO with my Minolta.

My mumsy got me egg tarts today, so goood, it's one of my favorite pastries.

P.S. I might start doing some DIY posts, so stay tuned!
