Coming Home and Colombian Dinner

3 more business days and I will be going home. Anne asked me if I miss Dallas. I told her that I will miss the place and the weather but nothing beats coming home and being able to see her. However, as the days come closer, I could feel that I will miss Dallas. It may be a boring place but it has many nice people and a great weather. Work in I-kei in Dallas was enjoyable too. Bonnie asked me why I am more hardworking when I am in USA nd I told her that it's because I was more motivated - perhaps because I work with a bunch of new people who are very self motivated and energetic. Or maybe it's the environment. I don't know. I can feel the same old depression coming up again. I get this feeling everytime I fly back to MY.

Maybe I should not go back.. Ha ha..

Last Friday, my team threw me a party. We went to a colleague's restaurant. She's from Colombia and her family has a restaurany that served Colombian food. It was great. They have Spanish live band and tango sessions. I had Bandeja Paisa, a very traditional Colombian food that has rice, red beans, pork skin (it's actually burnt "siew yok"), slice of beef steak and "pisang goreng". She said this is real Colombian food and if this is what they eat, I think I can get use to it. Their staple food is rice.. so it is very "Asian". The rice taste a bit salty.. almost like our kai fan rice. I had this drink called Mojito (pronounced Mo-hi-to) - it's from Cuban and it's a cocktail of rum, mint leaves and lime. Very delicious. Slurrp.

Update: recipe for Mojito:
1. cut lime into 5 parts and squeeze it
2. add 2 full tablespoon of white sugar
3. add mint leaves in and stir, then add ice and rum which is about 2 1/2 full shot glasses
4. add club soda to fill it up..

In the next few days I will have to start packing. I have a huge load. I wonder how I will manage to put everything into the small luggage. This will be a test of my packing skills.
