I eat so much until people call me Dr. Fish Fish.

Just back

It was a busy busy week for me.

Monday to Thursday, work.

Thursday night, Thanksgiving dinner. The Hubby cooked Turducken (imaging chicken wrapped in ducked wrapped in turkey being baked for 15 hrs). I made a 1-hr dish, sweet potato casserole, with lots of butter and pecan. Just the way southern like it.

Friday, we went to join the Black Friday fun. Amazing how many people were willing to camp outside just to get the best deals. Walmart was insanely packed with people. We decided to make it more crowded. Only by the end of the Black Friday, we finally bought something from Best Buy. The Hubby got one black camera for him, and kindly bought a pink one for me.

Saturday and Sunday, we brought our new cameras to Santa Barbara for two-day getaway. Santa Barbara is beautiful and quiet. Far enough to get away from home, yet near enough to drive less than 4 hr. It was a great break for both of us. We loved using our new cameras, the only down side is human face looks weird in these camera. I got to eat very fresh uni, tacos made from eyes and lips of cows, and coincidently joined a Mexican food fair for fund raising. We visited two nice missions. I learned so much about this historical side of California. And now, our goal is hopefully to visit all the 21 missions in California.

That's how I spent a whole week. Back to work again tomorrow.

I just finished watching an 11-episode Japanese drama.


It was adapted from a Japanese manga called "Antique Bakery". I've never read the manga version. But I've watched the Korean movie version, which followed the manga's plot closedly. I did not like the Korean version that much, since I don't know those actors at all. And I don't think their actings were that good.

But this Japanese drama version is totally my thing.

Let's talk about the actors, I like all 4 of them. Especially the one that acted as Keisuke. He is one of the best actors in Japan, and I've never seen him casting in such a comedic role. There are quite a number of "big actors" in this drama. How could I miss that when I was in Japan?

I laughed, cried and felt sweet so much in this drama, that I am also like a dumb, but totally enjoyed it.

The beautiful cakes that they showed in the whole series were already enough to give one enough rush from the infinity combinations of flour, sugar and egg. Don't you just love that sweet, buttery and caramalized aromas released from the oven. I love how our kitchen smelled whenever mom was making cake for Chinese New Year.

Thank you Antique for reminding me how much I loved my kitchen during CNY, and how much I loved Japanese dramas. :)

XOXO, Fish Fish

Gwyneth Paltrow and Glee

The two things that I have never imagined will my in sync!

I have watched quite a lot of Gwyneth's movies, but none of them really turned my head on her. I know she is smart and talented, but I am never fond of her.

Funny how a high-school musical dramas finally converted me.

I couldn't get the "Forget Me" and "Singing in the Rain/Umbrella" out of my head. LOL

I love her fashion in the "Forget Me", totally my style.

I'll put up the full version of Singing in the Rain/Umbrella when Youtube has it.
