hot dog party

Random idea came across what food to serve for small gathering. We're not fancy people but always try to come up with something simple and fun.

An idea we had was guest can make their own gourmet hot dogs. We served hot dogs cut into half so people can try out more variety of combinations they can come up with. Many ideas were inspired from Japadog, Food Network Magazine and Burkies Dog House from ACC.

In case people can't tell, a ball of smile in white bowl is mash potatoes. Combine it with ground beef with bacon bits and make yourself  a gourmet Shepperd's pie hot dog!

five-year memory book

A small new year's resolution this year I want to challenge is to write a daily diary. It's a diary that includes calendar date you fill in the year. Write about your day and turn the page to fill in the date accordingly throughout the year. When the year end, you go back to first page and fill in second entry space.

An idea I had with this diary when I saw this for the first time was that it would be nice to see people do is for mothers-to-be to start this diary the day they find out they're having a baby and record their changing life for next 5 years. And to go a little further, when the kid grows up, the mother can share or give that diary to the kid and show what their first 5 years was like. 

It's more like 5 years of new years resolution but this is the best time for me to start and compare what my life is like for next 5 years. My lifetime goal will always be how many projects can I accomplish so this would be fun to look back each year.

2014

Happy new year everyone! Hope everyone had wonderful holiday.

A little late but here are my photos of Toronto's ice storm we all had to put up with before Christmas. On my side I was stranded 2 nights with no power, it wasn't so bad until you realize you haven't showered for 3 days....

Outside was beautiful, everything was crystallized and it was interesting to see how these icicles wraps around any surface. The fun part was cracking ice from my car, shatter like glass.

Minus the storm, it has been great year for me in 2013 and hope to carry on with it this year.
