"It makes me sad..."

"Aw, why?"

"Because you would break up with me if I had a penis."

"Four weeks after we started dating, you called me to tell me we should break up because your parents disapprove of me. You were crazy."

He says it's petty that I get mad when he cannot meet me due of work. Do you know who wanted to meet in the first place? Not me.

I understand that he recently got promoted and has to work harder, but that's really no excuse to say that you will do such and such with someone and cancels last minute, and every fucking time? If it gets to a point where you can't even approximately predict when you will finish all your work, it's either you or your manager who has time management problem.

..but that's not the reason why I'm mad.The real reason why I'm mad is because he calls me and expects me to understand that he has work. To me, it's not a sign that he's hard-working or whatever he pretends to be, it's a sign of incompetence. And do you know who has work too? Me.

Char siu

Monday, 5 November 2012

Every weekend, either me or Jonathan cooks. Last weekend, he made chili. I thought it was so cute when I saw on this computer a list of ingredients to make chili that he got from Internet. Next weekend will be my turn and I decided that I will make barbecued pork or "Char Siu". I woke my mom up at 10 AM, which is quite early for my mom, to teach me.

Pork. It doesn't matter how much. Any parts of a pork is good; some like the belly, some like the butt, but the best are the shoulders, because it's partly fatty and partly skinny. You can only find big pieces of pork like these in East Asian markets. The pork should be cut into pieces of about 1-inch thick.

2-3 tablespoons of Char Siu sauce
1/2 tablespoon of soy sauce
1/4 tablespoon of dark soy sauce, just for the color

1. It's very simple, mix the Char Siu Sauce, the soy sauce and the dark soy sauce and rub everything with the pork. Leave it in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours, but longer if possible.

2. Add a rack to a roasting pan and fill the bottom pan with water, which will become the sauce.

3. No need to preheat, just place the meat on the rack and set it to broil for 30 minutes at 450°F.

4. Stop the oven, wait 10 minutes before opening. Flip to the meat over and brush the leftover marinade on top.

5. Roast the pork for another 10 minutes at 400°F.

6. Stop the oven, wait 5 minutes before opening. Brush honey on top.

7. Close the oven door. Leave it there for 5 minutes if it looks slightly burned. If not, roast for 2 more minutes at 300°F, or until it looks ready.

So simple!

Yu - I should not have broken up with Yu. Yu is always willing to show me love. Yu believes in me, I think, lol :P. In 5 years? I see myself still with Yu. To what level? who knows? Children? If it makes sense, one day. Together in 5 years? definitely. How will this happen? I don't know exactly, but spending time together doing things together laughing together. Reminding you that you're not taken for granted. Then, if one day you deem me worthy, oh princess, (lol) maybe we can move in together. Maybe we can spend our Saturdays gardening in the summer, in suburbia, like Laval. Or maybe we can move to a big condo on the plateau, and spend Saturdays skating at parc Lafontaine in the winter. Just to say the possibilities are endless but the two constant variables can be, Yu and I :)
