Sunday randomness! And a TRIP!

Since it was another work-free day, I spent my Sunday doing random stuffs: 90 min vinyasa yoga in the morning, groceries, cooking for the week, mini yoga class at home to two friends , and finally the most exciting part of the day was I booked the flight to Argentina on March 12th! Yeah~~~~ I'm going to my Star in 10 days!!! This trip is unexpected because I was almost sure that this spring break I'll stay here and work hard. But as I miss so much my man (only after one month), and working here in my office or working there in his office is pretty much the same, since I only need my mac to work. So, instead of staying here and getting stress out and miss him...what if I work there 8-9 hs a day when he works, and spend the night and weekend together? Such a great idea isn't it?? So, I had this thought on Saturday and I didn't book the ticket right away because I was afraid that it was a impulsive decision. But yesterday I woke up with the same determined idea, so I checked with the professor about the class that I teach and it's okay for me to be away for 2 weeks!!!! Everything checked, I booked the ticket! I'm soooo excited!!! Because when I'm in Argentina, I'm the princess. My Star sends a driver for me to go wherever I want, he takes me to the fanciest restaurant in Buenos Aires, he sends me flowers, chocolates, gifts, and much more!!! He may not seem romantic, but I know he tries hard to make me happy so he does whatever it takes, including being romantic! I'm sorry if I'm boring you or making you too jealous of me (^_^) but I need to spit it out! I don't use to tell him about how I appreciate it him and everything he does for me.. so why not here? the place that I'm ME and just myself (of course you, my true virtual friends).
okay... too much romanticism for the day. Let me get back to yesterday's eats.
Breakfast: a huge bowl of black rice porridge and dry spicy pumpkin. (I was going to have a late lunch)And an apple (forgot to take pic)
After yoga, I went to chinese market and Tj's. I got this flax & hobney Flatbread in Tj's to munchie since I began to feel hungry at 1.30pm and still have to drive back. This flatbread/cracker is soooo good! Very crunchy and the sesame adds the perfect flavor for it. I had 8 crackers while driving.
Lunch at 2.30pm was to finish leftovers: sauteed cauliflower, grilled shrimp and the warm salad.Dessert was chocolates.I cooked for the week and went to my friend Qiao's home to teach her yoga (I gave her a yoga mat as birthday gift) since she wants to get in shape and can't do cardio, so yoga is her solution. It was so fun, I enjoyed a lot teaching her and another friend, both of them are have never practiced yoga, so they were amazed by how hard is yoga.
Back home and had dinner: a new kind of shitake noodle with a stir fry bambu shot, soy strings, edamame, shitake and chinese pinkles.some kabocha fries and sauteed greens.Dessert: ricotta + butternut puree + wheat berries. Again , I had two bowls of this and get a little bloated. (I'm testing my dairy indulgence limit! ^_^)

Today Monday, I can't go to the work because we have snow storm here! I hope I can concentrate and be productive!

oooh exotic food challenege sounds ridiculously fun. I MIGHT be interested as long as the ingredient isn't too scary and hard to "manage".

You're so sweet to teach Qiao yoga! Maybe you can open up your own class! And I'm so happy for you to finally get to go see your Star. :) I'm sure he misses you just as much as you miss him. I hear wedding bells already. hahah said...
