So my morning started off with talking to 2 strangers. Some improvement from yesterday. Not too bad.
Loved the changing shades of the chopped spring onions from white to green...
Don't like tough carrots. So I softened them by steaming for 8 mins first, then marinated in the egg yolk and cornstarch mixture. But I ended up with stir-fried carrots and some scrambled eggs floating around the greens. Haha...
By the way, Yang's feeling weak and lethargic hence the 2nd dish was the uninnovative Kung pao sliced fish (which I had cooked for a few times). Only difference was using Toman fish, instead of Batang as the latter was not available at the supermart. Boring good.
As promised last night, Art-in-Yang's-yoghurt tonight is made with pinkie water color from the juice of cherry slices.
I wonder why cherries have such abundant juice, compared to grapes, strawberries etc. So curious Yang did a quick google about cherries. Learnt from The Georgia Gardener by Bob Stewart that one of the trees that frequently displays bleeding symptoms and invokes fear in the tree owner is the flowering cherry.
The exuding of gum from plants is called gummosis. And I felt a real pain in my gum now. From an ulcer.
Ya I know they are two different things..
My father keeps some small potted plants outside our corner HDB flat. My father-in-law too. It seems like the in-thing for the Boomers Generation daddies. I haven't kept any plant in my life but it must be really painful to see one you seeded bleeding, not to mention a big tree.
I wonder if they would turn pale and anaemic, like the way I was whenever I had a low red blood cell count. Yep, Yang had a history of anaemia.
