4-5 2nd Day of CNY’s at 2nd Grandmother’s

In Chinese, we call our grandaunts ‘2nd grandmother’. I have yet to wrap my head around that idea, but it does make the family feel tight knitted even through title calling. Every CNY, I always look forward to this meal–especially the vegetarian char siew. My aunt(?) (mom’s cousin, whom we usually call by name..which is odd..) cooks up a storm every CNY and invites us over; without reservations, I always eat my heart out. She also makes these jars of chicken rice chili for us to take home. I asked for the recipe two years ago, but it seems to be a secret that she doesn’t want to reveal.

16 I always get asked what the ‘black stuff’ is. It is oxidized pesto and it is dark green.

33 A little bit more of this view and I’m done with school. I cannot wait!

I always turn on some music that puts me in fighter mode and I tell myself, I’m going to finish this assignment right here and right now! Then I channel all that fighter mode into scrolling furiously through my Facebook news feed, reading all the important shares that will change my life, and suddenly its 4am.  Priorities, I know them; I just forgot to put them in order.
