 這家義大利餐廳有最令人既羨慕又嫉妒的義大利精神,一天只營業五個小時,中午十二點才開門,營業二個小時後就關上大門休息了。晚上六點準時營業,如果您早個十分鐘到,老闆會請您在外面稍等,六點整會開門請您進來。晚間的品嚐時間也只有三小時,時間到了老闆要休息回家溜狗。

“The Science of Getting Rich” and Visualization

My former cookery class student, Jake, who works for the High Speed Railway (HSR), asked me if I have read The Science of Getting Rich. With a title like that, it sounded a little bit crazy. But anyway, I downloaded the book, and read it carefully and tried to find if there really is a science of getting rich.

money heart - artist: Lai Guo Zhang 賴國彰This is an old book, written in around 1910 by an American, Wallace D. Wattles. The language is a bit wordy and sometimes odd. Jake said many people put it down after the first one or two chapters. But to find out how to get rich, I was prepared to be very patient.

After seven years, I finally got used to Kimchi

Korea's wonderful stone pot rice

October, 1999, was our first trip to Seoul. Almost as soon as we got into the city, we noticed the unbearably sour kimchi smell (fermented, pickled cabbage). We were feeling hungry after the flight from Taipei, but everywhere we looked, we couldn't avoid kimchi. Finally, we found a fried rice shop in a food court, so we could have some normal food.

Fried rice - too simple to make

I grew up with fried rice, it's part of our culture. Everywhere you go you see fried rice, every family eats fried rice. It has the same kind of position in the food culture as sandwiches in Western countries.
