interview & more chinese eats in China ^_^

Melissa @Trying to Heal picked me for an interview:
1. If you could turn into an animal, what would it be and why?
" I'd be a cat because I feel part of me have its "personality". I like being alone sometimes, I enjoy observing the world from my little world, I need to be free to do whatever I want. "
2. What would be your ultimate outdoor adventure?
"Rock climbing definitely. I've only tried indoor climbing and love it. I guess the next stage would be outdoor rock climbing, where more physical and mental strength will be needed."
3. If you could eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
"well... this question could be answered by any of my readers: PUMPKIN!"
4. Dream vacation means unlimited money: Where would you go?
"5 years ago I'd have said Greece, Egypt, Paris, etc.... Now my answer would be anywhere my family and my lovely bf are. I don't know why, but living apart from them the last two years and half made me closer to them actually. I enjoy and appreciate more every single day with them. So, wherever they are, is heaven for me! "
5. Who has been the biggest influence on your life?
" Maybe this sounds weird (since most of people would say: my father, my grand-father, my professor, etc), but for me the most influential person in my life is my boyfriend. I know that I was different before meeting him, before letting him get into my life. I was shy, pessimistic, selfish, considered a bad person by myself. And he is the kindest, most optimistic, most open minded person I've ever met. His kindness to the world opened my eye and changed my way to enjoy this life. I'm not afraid about future anymore, I learned how to appreciate myself and to care my loved ones."
To play along:

1. Leave me a comment saying, "Interview me." If a few people want interviews, I will randomly pick 2.

2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. (I get to pick the questions).

3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions

4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview others in the same post.

5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

I wanted to share more pics of my eats in China. Eating out in a chinese/japanese restaurant
miso soup with seafood and tofu
tofu with korean picklesbig roll of sushi filled with fruitsnoodles with meat and veggies in a very thick meat broth
and also a big salad
everything was devoted by me and bf! :D

okay. now back to today. This morning yoga was 20 min core yoga #1 and 20 min power vinyasa flow #4.
breakfast: black rice porridge + 1 beated egg + GYG + dried pumpkinsAM snack: Quaker True Delights Dark Chocolate rasperry (my fav.)Lunch: sandwich made with 2 slices of roasted turkey breast + spinach + mustard; an apple with Almond butter. (I ate them in the seminar)PM snack: fresh blueberres + blueberries yogurt + fiber oneDinner: sauteed greens with ginger/garlic/mushrooms + leftover tofu with shitake + rice + hello kitty plates and bowls.Dessert: lotus powder + real simple.
I'm so tired (some headache) now. Result of 10 hours of productive work today in my new study spot! ^_^
Question: What's your way to treat/reward yourself when you're tired? Mine was soaking into bed at 9.30pm!

yay i always love your posts for content ANNND great eats of course! I especially loved the answer to question 5. Everyone needs someone so optimistic and caring and I'm so glad you found someone like your boyfried! I feel the same way about mine. :)

I get my matcha powder from Taiwan. Literally. *sigh* I have to go bad on a plane, load up, and come back with a suitcase of it. You can get 'em at whole foods but they cost way too much!!!

I feel shy about what you said about me. Because I feel I am not so good as you said. but I will do my best try to be the person you are imagine.

I like the close feeling with you from my heart.
