Back to Singapore - 2011

Yep just finished my assignment in Pittsburgh today, hopped on a flight back to the twin cities and have 1 night to pack before I leave for the airport tomorrow at 10am. I'm headed back to Singapore for 3 weeks and in time for Chinese New Year 2011.

Here's my bags partially packed cos I have a few items in the fridge that I'll put in just before I leave. Its way too much work to take a good photo of all the gifts I'm bringing back home so I won't bother.

Now to get some shut eye cos I'm just worn out from all this traveling.

Christmas 2010

There's a lot of snow in Minneapolis this year. Here's a picture of the amount of snow that fell when the top of the metro dome fell in.

Here's a picture of the outside of the house on Christmas Eve. Lot of snow.

Here's what I'm having for Christmas Eve, also Christmas Day and the day after. Its a really big Prime Rib with the bone in and took 6 hours in the over to cook. Accompanied with mushrooms and onions and asparagus and its wonderful.

Here's the Prime Rib sliced. Click on the picture for a close up. I think it looks awesome.

And here is the first plate. BTW its really big piece of meat.

And here's my Christmas Gifts for 2010. Actually its what I purchased in the month of December. There's a lot less books than I usually get but that because I download almost all my books into my Kindle nowadays.

Its a Blizzard

See these photos? There's currently a Blizzard in Minneapolis, supposed to last 24-36 hours. The snow level is so so but, the winds are very very strong about 20-30 mph and the temperature? About 6 degrees F, and will go down to -7 tonight. Not many people will venture out this weekend.

And here's me keeping warm at home. With Seafood stuffed mushrooms from Costco.

And Also playing World of Warcraft: Cataclysm which just came out this week!

Thanksgiving 2010

Well its Thanksgiving again. I didn't cook turkey. Instead I just made stuffing. This is a pork or turkey and grape stuffing. I've done both and they both work well. Here's all the components: Egg, bread, cooked pork (Or turkey), and finally celery, grape, onions and green apples cooked together. Mix them well and bake.

I had Duck legs and stuffing for Thanksgiving. The Duck is pre-prepared from Costco. All I had to do as microwave it. Pretty darn good if I do say so my self.

And Here's what it looks like outside. Cold but nothing too bad.

First Snow of 2010

Its only the 13th of Nov 2010, and we have a sudden snow storm. Its unusual for the first snow to accumulate on the ground but its been snowing the entire night and I guess its cold enough outside.

Good thing I watched the weather and did all my groceries yesterday.

Here's the food for the weekend. Chicken Salad (Pre-made from costco). Broccoli, sauteed onions, tomatoes and avacado. A very tasty and filling salad.

Blizzcon 2010

1 year ago today I was in California for Blizzcon 2009, but I could not make it out this year. Still I sprung for a virtual ticket and will be spending the next 2 days watching the activities from my home.

After being there last year, its easy to imagine everything that's going on there. Its just a whole lot of fun. And I really think I want to be there in 2011.

Still there are benefits to watching the activities at home. Its comfortable and here's my Blizzcon snack. Wings with a Mozzarella cheese, tomato and salmon salad. Definitely a step up from the hot dogs and other convention foods available there.

Incidentally, here's what the outside of my house looks like today. No a green leaf in sight and lots of dried leafs on the ground.
