Meeting madness & Ravenous hunger!

Yesterday I had three meeting with my three advisers, all went very well and productive. Maybe because my mind was working so hard, I had a ravenous hunger! I kept snacking between meetings and still felt hungry all the time! But I didn't care much, I was excited and happy about meeting them before I leave to Argentina for two weeks so I can work there. I just kept fueling with healthy snacks. ^_^
okay. I'll make my yesterday's eats recap quick so I can give you a preview of my culinary trip to Buenos Aires! ^_^ yeah~~ that will be a real culinary trip. If anyone wants to visit Buenos Aires I can give you a culinary guide to taste the best/finest food in Argentina.
wait...before breakfast I did 20 min yoga core and 30 min yoga for buns. Both killed my belly and butt badly~ ^_^
Breakfast: 5 Old Wessex with almond milk, eggwhite, cinnamon/vanilla, flax meal, cottage cheese, chopped apple and GYG.AM snack: soft wrap with BB.
Lunch: bok choy & sausage riceDessert: PM snacks: soft wrap with 2 tbsp of Chocolate PB. MUM MUM~~~~~~ I was in Heaven.
More BB.mochi
Strawberries + fage + fiber 1= yummy messDinner: sauteed Chinese leek with tofu + leftover eggplant casserole + black rice porridgeDessert: ricotta + cinnamon.Okay, now preview of the best brunch in Buenos Aires at the hotel Four season Buenos Aires. Look this place. (pics taken during my last year trip to BA)This was a private property during 1950s and belonged to one of the richest family in Argentina.
Pics of food coming soon! ^_^

Question: Are you modest? Do you think we should always be modest? I'm asking this because yesterday my professor asked me to write a draft of the letter of recommendation that I need to apply for a internship. And she told me, don't be modest!

I think I'm pretty modest. I wouldn't know what to say in a letter of rec.

lesley said...

Yeah, looks like you're DEFINITELY going to have a great trip! : )

I do tend to be modest about myself but I think it's mostly because I don't know that I have much self confidence in some areas ... ha, and I certinaly don't want to make myself sound better than I am!!

Have a lovely Wednesday! : )

Wow, BA looks amazing! I'd love to visit there someday!
I act modest on the outside, but on the inside I'm pretty aware of my strengths :)

Maggie said...

Sometimes I am too modest :)

I want to visit Argentina! I need to learn Spanish first though. I have this thing where I won't go on a trip unless I study the language at least a little bit.

Annie said...

i'm modest. but when it comes to interviews for a job i try not to be.

Emily said...

BA looks so amazing!!!

I am usually modest; it's hard to brag about myself. Eek.

Erica said...

Great eats. I have not yet tried chocolate pb...can you believe it? Your trip looks like it is going to be incredible! I think the company I work for really encourages us to be proud of what we I am less modest now than I use to be

lauren said...

Hi Coco! I've heard so many people (mainly Asians though) say that Chinese people are too modest because it's just in our culture. Although I think it is always better to be more modest, there are also times when you just need to be confident and blow your own horn. hahaha

WOW I am officially jealous of your trip. :P Pack me in your suitcase!!!

I can't wait to see the pictures of your trip!

I always kid with my husband that when someone compliments me, that I ask them to write it down so I can laminate it and put it in my "kudos file."

i have to try that tortilla & pb idea - i've done it w/ pb & banana but never w/o the banana :)

I can't imagine having three bosses!! That sounds challenging. As for being modest, no, I'm definitely not modest. As a woman working in technology I think confidence is very important. :) Write an awesome letter for yourself! You deserve it. Let me know if you want me to read it for you before you show it to him. Happy to help.
