Four years ago, I was donning an emerald green flowy tube dress, saying the marriage vow and exchanging wedding bands with Kirin, at a small ballroom on the 70th floor.
Velveted shrimps and tau kwa for stir-fry with beijing cabbage tonight. Blur Yang added a teaspoon of black vinegar instead of shaoxing rice wine, and wondered why it looked darker today. Made a quick rinse and popped a tau kwa cube into my mouth. Just a mild vinegar taste.. phew! Had a lunch date with Kirin in town and wasn't in time to prepare the xiao long bao filling. Simply too ambitious.
Again, the recipe is actually the same as my earlier asparagus & chicken stir-fry and French beans, kanimi & tau kwa stir-fry. Yep, just explore around with the main ingredients and you get a different dish. Hahaa... Stir-fries are great for novices in cooking like Yang.
And so our ROM anniversary day came to an end. A sunny, peaceful day of comforting McDonald's lunch with Kirin, meeting my gynae who helped deliver 小雨, then a homecooked dinner with our little one.
Peace is bliss. Sharing lyrics of this lovely song 風和日麗 by Rene Liu, 劉若英, which I chose as our wedding day first march-in song:
難得晴 難得雨 難得生命裏有過你
難得有你可以 讓我認得 記得 值得
難得 一年總有一天 我的好天氣
