The real reason behind this website is to post anything and everything that makes me and my heart happy. Lately, I’ve been cooking a lot and trying to cook within a budget. Something I’ve never done before. I come from a house with a fridge and pantry that are always full of ingredients to play with: Asian condiments, various types cuts of meats – including the least desired parts.
I miss having an Asian supermarket a few miles away. I miss being enveloped by multicultural cities. Yes, multicultural Orange County. It’s true what they say about missing things when they’re gone but life goes on and all we can do is grow from there.
Anyway, before ennui sets in, Oregon is not bad. In fact, I love Oregon. I love being surrounded by trees, breathing fresh air. Yes, all the comforts of Orange County may not be within reach but it’s not like I’m not coming back to visit. For now, I just have to find comfort in her strangeness.
