Jan 01, 2017 – [Sunday] WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: Resilient

Toronto, Canada, taken on October 13, 2015

Salmons are resilient creatures as they must swim upstream against violent currents to spawn. While strolling along the Don River with my dad one autumn day we saw HUGE salmons in the river, jumping fiercely against the current but failing to reach the high point time after time. Then after a few minutes, they tried again, failed again, and prepared again to continue trying. Keep going, buddies!

July 12, 2014 – Curry fish balls

Another food festival, woot! This time, it was Night It Up. My sister and I were smarter this time and went in the afternoon at the beginning of the event, avoiding all the line-ups that were sure to occur in the evening. We tasted lots of yummy food items, including stinky tofu, salty chicken, blooming onions, teppanyaki squid, takoyaki, and these classic curry fish balls. I was expecting four but got six instead, quite a good size. And I could not understand how something so simple could be so good!

February 18, 2013 – So much salmon

Not sure why I randomly went into a salmon frenzy today, but hey, why not? I wanted to try some new recipes before I invite my friends over again, and salmon became the main character. After a trip to the grocery store, I made asparagus wrapped in smoked salmon and pan-fried rosemary honey salmon, and I ate everything on the table. Oh, plus some instant noodles as well, just because.
