hungry for some HK style fried nooldes?

i kept telling my fiance that HK style fried noodles is nothing like 'yaki soba' here in japan.
it's not the matter of being more delicious ( definitely tastes better than yaki soba...hehe)
he wasn't so convinced
so i bought the noodles when i was in Hong Kong back to Japan
trying to prove my point

i totally forgot what are in the authentic HK style fried noodles
"just believe in your instinct"
my all time motto for cooking

i am not sure if what i made was authentic
but what matters is that
he LOVED the noodles
and my point was proved

now i am in illnois
for the past 5 days
I have been toWhole Foods (just next to my hotel) and Trader Joe's for 4 times already..
An obessission for sure

"Being-easy-on-myself" kind of day

Cleaned my room
Cleaned the fridge
Made a big pot of vegetable soup
Walked to the bank
Happy that my account is "recharged"
Bused to town
Paid n got my ticket for Chicago
Enjoyed a nice comforting cup of grande light syrup whole soy chai tea latte
With my read "into the wild"
Strolled around n walked into the cinema thinking
"if there is a movie starting at this moment, I will watch it"
And as I checked my phone: 17:45
Screening schedule: ...Happy ending...17:45
It's a Sign!
Enjoyed the movie with only 2 other ppl in the theater
A bit of tears, a bit of laughters
Hungry for sushi
Walked into kaiten (rotating)sushi shop
Feeling full and satisfied
Took a nice 75mins walk home
Relaxing in my bath
And currently blogging

I cannot ask for more

more red envelopes please?

after 16 years of not celebrating a REAL chinese new year
i finally got to enjoy it in my last year of being single

chinese new year is much better when you are single
you get all these red/gold envelopes from families and friends
what's in the envelopes?
of course! seeing families and friends are priceless
but who can resist from having some extra pocket money?
