Happy Birthday IMX ♪
From Sohn-san's blog Nov.22:
Ｉ was finally able to eat lunch. Today’s menu was a bento (a Japanese lunch box) of grilled mackerel. I usually eat my lunch alone – I look forward to the change of fish in the bento, not that there are that many variations. I sometimes wish there was more variety in the fish that was available here. That aside, you’re probably thinking the photo has nothing to do with what I just talked about. You’re right.
The photo is what I ate for dinner at a Mexican place near UCLA when I was in L.A. recently. I really love Mexican food, but the portion was a bit too much that day. Forgetting that I once gained 13 kg when I spent a year in the States, everything looked so good that I ordered too much. But it WAS good. Being the old fashioned type, I hate to leave food – I realize this is the cause for my weight gain. I have a liking for ethnic food like Vietnamese, Thai, Mexican… things that have an exotic aroma such as coriander (has nothing to do with the fact that I am “Korean” ). Of course, I like things like grilled mackerel, too which only smells of fish. But I don’t quite feel like taking a picture of it …
Incidentally, IMX turned 5 years old today. November 22, 2001 was the day IMX was born. As they all say, the days went by in a flash. Many people had given comments to my previous posting telling me to be careful while driving, so last night, I slept on the sofa to avoid driving at a late hour. Because memories of the past five years started coming to me, I thought I wouldn’t be able to sleep – but just as I thought so, I fell asleep. I slept deeply until the security guard woke me in the morning.
… Tonight is the opening night of the Staatskapelle Dresden concert. After that, the staff of IMX is planning to have a get together to celebrate our 5th anniversary. I don’t know how many will be coming – we rarely go out to drink like this. Having written this, I’m getting worried… what if I’m the only one that’s not invited?
So, did you enjoy your lunch today?
