Remember this week is spring break, and I have decided to stay here to work on my essays? yeah – time flies by , my model still gives me crappy result. That really makes me feel down, down, down. It’s hard to make complains nowadays, to my parents? no, they don’t really understand what I am doing and how much painful this model estimation process will be. To my friends? maybe not a good idea – those who are doing their PhD are already immersed themselves in this pain-in-the ass process and hearing more complains would reminds of their bad days… those who are not doing their PhD probably don’t have to worry about the model estimation at all , and they are wondering what the heck are you doing right now??!!! To professors??? maybe ….yet they are hoping I could get something out by the end of spring break.
I was really frustrated and depressed. Wondering what to do in the next step.
well, I know I really need to get myself out of these bad mood. when I was wandering in my room, I came across this piece of paper that has been hang on the back of my door for 2 years, yet I seldom give it a read. It says:
I am blessed with everything I need
My happiness depends on me
Life is beautiful
My life is complete
I am wise and experience
I have a lot of love to give
I am a loyal and fun friend
I am a faithful and committed lover
I love being myself
I know what I want
I am satisfied with who I have become
I have great friends and family who love me
I have a great heart and warm spirit
I don’t want anything from anyone
Only I can change my life
I can change unhappy situations
I am a beautiful and strong woman.
well said. I can change unhappy situations and I am a strong woman. There is nothing could beat me down. I will face the problem and find the way out. Suddenly I feel so much relieved. I am blessed to be who I have become now, and I believe everything will be alright. Tomorrow, is another day.
Okay, after rumbling for so long , let me bring it back to food. I really need a pick-me-up today. So I made this sweet treat: Mantou Pudding.
It’s not bread pudding, its the Mantou pudding, or Bun Bun Pudding! In China, the Buns is called Mantou
I got quite a few buns from coco, (thank you!! ) that was really the softest Mantou I have ever eaten here ! after devouring it for several days in its plain form, I decided to exploit its maximum utilities.
So I use:
FIVE eggs (Five!!! oh mine, this is the largest amount of eggs I have ever used in my recipe).
about 1.5 buns, and 4 slices of whole wheat double fiber bread.
1/3 cup of Tj’s blueberry ( I need to recommend this: its huge blueberries!)
Unsweetened coconut flakes ( optional)
and NO sugar needed since the buns are slightly sweet.
Cut the mantou and bread in cubes, beat the eggs, mix them all together and sprinkle the coconut flakes:
alright, easy enough huh send it to the oven, 350 degrees for 30 min.
the edges come out really crunchy. and the roasted coconut flakes makes the whole room nice and sweet.
Life is short – have some dessert.
Life is short – let’s appreciate what we already have.
Life is short – let’s be proud of what we already achieve.
Lief is short – let’s find that strength, joy, and peace in mind.
