huiting says hi

Welllllll this is the public blog, so the things written here should be more-or-less stomach-able. ;) So I guess this is where I say the mandatory line:

This blog documents the thoughts and growth process of:
A free soul roaming the world in search of some meaning to life.

Pretty sure that's not the exact way I phrased it when I had my old blog skin but WTV HAHA.

Oooooh wait I think I wrote it as "lonely soul" instead of "free soul". But hey guys I've grown out of that emoshitz phase already alright ;)


人生就是要盡情地瘋 / I am a free soul.

Musings; the importance of memories
Hello dear blog :) I am feeling very happy right now because I cooked rice and steamed minced pork and cabbage+eggs for lunch, and I ate 1/4 plus 1/12 of the mini mooncake I bought from the Hong Kong bakery in San Francisco two days ago. It was good :) It is good, haha, tastes exactly like the mooncakes back home, and perhaps can be on par with the better mooncakes back home HAHA. I savoured it slowly with my earl grey tea from Trader Joe's, so I'm a happy girl now!

It's 1.37pm in the afternoon and I didn't go to lab today ahaha. Firstly because Kelly is not going to be there anyway, and secondly because I don't think I'll gain much from going there. I still need to read papers and do my literature review, so yep. Managed to read some papers in the morning! And now I think I have a rough idea of what I would like to do for my official FYP, so I'm less frantic and directionless now haha.

I suppose the rest yesterday helped! The rest over the weekend too. I have so much food now, hehe, don't think I'll be able to finish them LOL. Will probably bring the Milano cookies to lab to get the rest of the lab members to polish it off HAHA. Yep, there's still a lot of cookies left that I don't really fancy eating so x) The Cheetos puffs were really great though! I didn't expect each puff to be so big! Haha! But it's nice, and pretty cheap too, so I think I'll buy it again in the future :) I still have half a bag left, but it's a good snack! Not as terribly sinful as Super Rings HAHA the colouring is not so intense. Woohoo. The Ritz cheese snack packs are another story though x-x So salty omg, both the cheese dipping sauce and the biscuits... Don't think I'll eat a lot of it as well, and I probably won't buy it again -sheepish-. Probably should have spent my money on the cheese sandwich crackers instead, but then it was such a huge packet (12 individual 3-sandwich packets!) that I was a little afraid to buy it too x-x Moderation is my guiding motto HAHA, I don't care if I can get more with just $2 more or something, the value doesn't really appeal to me. I'd rather be able to try a variety of different things instead xD

Man, haven't opened that cheese tortellini pack from Trader Joe's yet! I wonder what it tastes like? I'll have to finish up my beef bolognese ravioli and pesto tortellini first though, and that will be another two meals already HAHA. Guess my fridge is really very well-stocked with food :P Can't help it, especially not when Safeway is just across the street and I like to walk through supermarkets to buy things. Perhaps I should have bought that dried shelf-stable cheese tortellini instead, but well, there's always next time xD I still have 6 months to go! Plenty of time left to try other things ahaha.

But of course, I'm also very glad that I can cook dishes from back home, like broccoli + carrots, ABC soup, other soups, etc. That means that I won't really get homesick for Chinese food HAHA. Because I am free to cook it! Woohoo. That's one good thing about living in a place long-term vs just being in a hostel I guess. You get to buy more stuff and stock up the fridge for a longer time. Suddenly reminded of our family's Australia adventure haha, when we stayed in that nice house on Phillip Island and had that super nice home-cooked dinner together. And also when we cooked during those days spent in the hostel haha. It was nice! And when we cooked during the Great Ocean Road night too. Man, if I don't think hard about it, I think I might forget all these memories haha. It's pretty important to record these things down... I think a memory device will be good, so that we can go back and review certain moments if we want to. But of course there'll be that whole host of other considerations as well like people losing themselves in their memories instead of the present, Black Mirror-like stuff happening, etc... But well, I think memories are a really important part of who we are, and I do get lost in my diaries sometimes as well. Still, it doesn't mean that I've forgotten the present haha. It only serves to motivate me more for the present, once I return from the past...

It's never really the device's fault; it's more of how the people use the device.

Well. That was a good post :) I enjoyed writing it. It's time for me to get on with the other activities I've planned for the day. Shall we?

See you!
