Year of the Pig
Okay, my other favorite thing is food. Today I went to lunch with a few coworkers and we celebrated Chinese New Year. It is the Year of the Pig - a good year for having children. Isn't this a cute picture?
We dined on a feast of ten dishes - whole fish, Bejing Duck, BBQ pork, chicken and duck, Chinese brocolli, shrimp and scallops, BBQ beef with pineapple, baby bok choy with mushrooms and dried tofu, fried whole shrimp (heads and feet), pickled something, and a few other dished I don't remember - what can I say except it was wonderful. I am an adventurous diner so this was like heaven to me. My Chinese friends were so happy and proud to share this with the rest of us. Great time.
Hold on a sec, Mer is coming back to life. Oh no, it's her mom that's dead and Mer is not ordinary. Sniff, sniff. Sorry - Grey's Anatomy. If you watch it, you understand.
