Meaning of Life

Life is a process that keeps on going no matter what happens. Anything that seems to be so miserable shall pass and everything that seems to be happy will end. Unlike in the drama, there is no such thing as happy ending or sad ending. There is always life after that. There are lives after graduation, there are lives after marriage, and there are lives after lives.

Everything that comes into lives is just a point in the process of continuum, so just take everyday as it comes and do our best in that point in process. The world is not going to explode if you are called 'disabled' or if you are 'crippled', whatever it is, lives have not yet to end. Until we pass away shall we know the very end of our lives, so don't give up, just hang on to dear lives till we see the last scence where we shall sleep tight.

California Sushi 9.5/10
Gokhun and Hisae taught me how to make this. Today Gokhun and Hisae had planned earlier to make sushi for dinner today, but I didn't know so I coincidently bought salmon sushi at the shop. It turned out that sushi we made is much much better than the the ones I bought.

1. Japanese rice
2. Vinegar
3. Avocado
4. Cucumber
5. Lettuce
6. Mayonnaise
7. Tuna
8. Roasted Seaweeds
9. Sweet omelette
10. Sugar
11. Sushi mat

How to:
Before making sushi, prepare two things: (1) rice mixed with vinegar and sugar, (2) tuna mixed with mayonnaise. Put roasted seaweeds on a sushi mat. Spread rice on top of seaweed covering 70 percent of the seaweed plate. Then, put sliced cucumber, avocado, lettuce, tuna, and omelette in the middle of the seaweed. Roll them up nicely. Then, cut with sharp knife into pieces. Serve with Japanese soy sauce and wasabi.
