  • Shopping at an exhotic grocery store
  • I was at a Korean grocery store the other day. I saw an American woman talking to Spanish speaking workers there. She was asking a
    bout Baby Bok Choy. Sure, they were working there, but it's not necessarily they are familiar with Asian vegetables since suc

  • Days in New York ~ Part.2
  • Looking back the trip to New York City in February...We had a whole day in the city in the day 2. It was loosely planned, but not
    much time to sleep in. We stayed in Midtown. We booked a tour at 11:00 in the lower east side. Our morning goal was to have break
    fast before that in the area.Smart NavigatorWe took shower, then opened Citymapper to find out how to get to the breakfast place. [続きを読む]

  • Make Lemonade ~ Cope with good memories ~ Part 3
  • We don't even realize how many pictures we have taken from special moments to daily routines. Once they are gone, especially
    ones captured everyday life become much more significant than special occasions. Without words, those pictures tell you all storie

  • Make Lemonade ~ Cope with good memories ~ Part 1
  • Feelings cannot be always in the state we intend even though we think, believe, or even want them to be. They are parts of us, but
    it is sometimes the most difficult to control.Grieving a loss of loved ones is never easy to deal with. Everybody takes it differ
    ently and handles in their own ways. One thing for sure to anybody is that denying or avoiding grieving wouldn't help you. We

  • Days in New York ~ Part. 1
  • It was a while back... One Friday in March... This was the package we'd been waiting for that week. The bialys at Russ & Daug
    hters had gotten stuck in our heads for a while. After a little bit of Googling, I ordered some bialys and bagels from H&H Midtown
    Bagels East, which is knows as one of the best bagel places in NYC. I actually thought ordering from Russ & Daughters, but I coul

  • Cherish It
  • Last month of yesterday, I gave my last gift to Marilyn. It got to the point that I was not able to give her comfort she needed a
    nymore, no matter how hard I tried. It was the most powerless moment I realized that. There was only one thing I could do for her
    at that point. When you recognize your fur babies have lost sparkles in their eyes, you know the best thing you could do for them

  • How Cannot You Put the Heart Into?
  • My father called me last night. Father: What's new? Me: Not much. Same all, same all. Father: How's Marily
    n? Me: She's doing good. You know, she's fine as 17 years old. She gets up by herself, walks around if she wants.
    She eats well. So, it's good. Father: Well, she seems to be good taken care of... If you put more your heart into her,

  • Dining Room Face Lift
  • Once snow covers the ground, it's just nice to stay in the house. Outside is too cold to do anything unless you like hanging
