Been working lots and always running out of time for anything. Just went back to Tainan on Thursday and back to Taipei again on Saturday. Can’t believe I’m going to meet another company next Monday and possibly ask for even more work. As if I don’t have my hands full already :SImage

Exactly like in Vancouver. A good dinner with my favourite dish with one of my absolute favourite people.

After a year of not doing much career-wise. Work start piling up all of a sudden. Last weekend I went to a tech career fair thing and spoke to quite a few companies. Of those, five I found intrigued. I didn’t take working in Taiwan too seriously because I thought the tech companies are still stuck in the early millennia, but apparently not these, probably because they are startups. Now I can’t wait to finish my current project, but seems like it will drag-on for quite some time, given the escalating scope I’m seeing.

I stopped updating few months back because one day I suddenly decided to make an effort to go to bed early everyday. 10-11pm that was. For health reason of course, not that I just learned that its a good habit, but I felt I should be more careful now for better recovery. Before I tended to write right before I go to bed, almost always after midnight. Somehow I felt particularly inspired during that time. Midnight melochony? When theres nothing good on tv and nothing u should be doing besides going to bed. A blank time slot. Meant for reflect if not recall or at worst regret.

Well. I wrote that about a year ago on a train ride and never got to update it. I actually procrastinated posting a post on the reason for why I procrastinated. Beat that!! Nothing special today, just feel like starting to pick up blogging again while still keeping myself in regular sleeping schedule. Have made a little to do list and everyday goals, gonna keep myself accountable this time.

Slow your footsteps down by 66%.

Put on your good headphone.

Pick a tune that goes well with your speed.

Crank up the volume to 83%.

Take off your glasses if you can.

And watch the city slow down for you.

中秋節就是要放煙火。

烤肉月餅什麼的都是其次,那些是大人在做的事,從小的記憶就是中秋放煙火,有時候還不止一攤,會去其他人家續攤放煙火。

那時候的父母都沒在管,一堆沒咧驚小朋友跟一些更危險的大朋友一起放煙火,沖天炮看是平行放還是往地上射還是拿在手上放。

現在的小朋友好像被管太多,沒有做蠢事的機會,其實小時候的蠢事是長大後美好的回憶,而且做蠢事的小朋友比較酷,永遠都有故事可以炫耀。

This got me thinking… 現在這個年紀停止做蠢事會不會太早?

TV is screwing up my bed time schedule.

More specifically, I stay up watching 新聞挖挖哇 almost every night (Monday to Friday that is, because they show reruns during the weekend, and I would have already seen them). I used to watch it because my mom does, and I find it a good way to spend some time with her. But over time I find myself watching it even when I’m by myself.

The show runs from 11pm to 12:30am. And after that I have to do some mindless web surfing for another hour or so before I can really go to bed, that pushes my bed time to 1ish to 2ish. That’s no good. Plus I’m picking up another habit of writing blog posts (like this one) before I go to bed, and this always take longer than I expect.

I remember back in 2009 when I came back for almost 6 months, the show that kept me up was 全民最大黨 (I still like the name 悶鍋, not sure why they changed it). Oh my how I have aged.

<This is a food post>

以前沒發覺,但外食要吃到青菜真的不容易。

昨天的兩餐都沒有青菜,即使想點店裡也沒賣。

魚排蛋包飯跟牛肉麵。

今天特別注意,選吃得到青菜的地方。

米糕跟擔仔麵。

不過這樣青菜好像還是不夠,看來只能自己煮才吃得到足夠的青菜吧。

星期天跟表姐表姊夫還有兩隻小的去樹屋和安平古堡。我還是第一次去樹屋,不然就是小時候去過忘記了。

妹妹在安平古堡的草叢找到一片四葉草,哥哥也想找一片,竟然不到幾秒真的又找到一片。

照片右邊的是雞蛋花。

兩年前貼過他們的照片,現在一個上小五一個小二,這學期剛好兩個都當班長,看來人緣不錯呦。

雖然我不該亂喝飲料,但幾次忍不住還是買了奶茶。不同以往的是,現在會記得叮嚀要半糖去冰,相較於以往的少冰少糖。也沒什麼大不了,半糖對有些人還是太甜,真要養生應該喝水或自己泡無糖的茶。

今天經過7-11忍不住習慣性地走進去,買了罐伯朗咖啡。喝第一口就覺得不太對,沒想像中的好喝,太甜了。晚上去超市看到’午後的紅茶’奶茶(好繞舌的商品)在特價,印象很好喝所以買了一瓶。結果一樣,不怎麼樣,也是太甜了。

也許這幾個月下來我的口味已經改變了,聽說癌細胞的生長會消耗大量的糖;或許因為現在沒了,我的身體也不再需要這麼多的糖分。

本來在超市想買以前常吃的餅乾,看到上面標的反式脂肪,又默默的把它放回去了。
