Book: 食育小学堂-陈惠雯著


"...现在大多数有孩子的家庭,每当外食,父母就会问孩子:你们想吃什么?然后听从孩子的意见,即使孩子选择要去提供垃圾食物的餐厅,父母为了让孩子高兴,还是会带着孩子一起到速食店,然后开心的用餐,想为孩子留下‘美好的回忆’。

...十二岁以前的孩子,会把常吃的味道,当作‘妈妈的味道’记忆下来。长大以后,他自然也会很喜欢到这些速食店...从此若不吃重口味的东西,就觉得不好吃或不过瘾。”

-摘自食育小学堂,陈惠雯著。

这两小段太重要了,非分享不可。
好书一本,推荐。


看了这本借来的书后感触良多,因为发现身边的一些朋友很爱吃快餐,有的也常常带孩子去快餐店用餐。有时候我想多口劝说少吃点,但觉得自己好像鸡婆了。
因为这本书是朋友从台湾买回来的,我想在本地书局找一找再买下来,借或送给朋友。


也很感恩我的父母并没有常让我们吃快餐,所以我们也没养成习惯。


父母是孩子们的榜样,饮食习惯也是从家里培养出来的。

大黄菊


菊花很难种, 尤其是像我住在这种没草地空间的大楼.
就买花回来摆吧!  也可以至少每两周换一次不同的花.

这次买的大黄菊只有一支, 就足够让家里充满阳光了.


上次买的, 可以耐差不多两个星期.

A great 2011 & for another great year 2012

Photo taken in Tokyo University, October 2011.


Time flies. Another year comes by.
I'm glad that I had a fulfilling year 2011.
I'd visited Tokyo, my dream destination since teenage year;
I attended guitar class and yoga course, which are on my last year's resolution list;
I quit my job to work as a freelancer, more flexible and carefree;
and I bought a car, mini MPV as I told myself to get one before reaching 30. ;P

What a happening year.

So I started my first day of year 2012 sleeping soon after the fireworks ended by 12.30am and woke up at about 8.30am. Good start I suppose. It's one of my new year resolutions to have a good sleeping hour, hopefully everyday.
Learning new things has been on my list every year. So this year I would like to refresh Japanese language as I only remember very basic stuffs I learned in university.
And I'm still contemplating to take a 2-day Barista course or work in a cafe to learn more about coffee.
Still weighting the pros and cons.
I also want to do more handcrafting, especially sewing that can help me to generate some income.
I want to read at least a chapter of a book or an article before going to bed every night. I hadn't read enough recently.

Oh yes, travelling is still an essential thing for me.
I will have a family trip to Seoul in July, and hopefully I can tag a friend for a Nepal trekking trip in November. But if not, I think I'll still make it by myself to join the troop.

So you have your new year resolutions ready?
Anyway, have a great year ahead!
