Father's Day


It is 2 o'clock in the morning. Today is Father's Day.

According to Wikipedia,
Father's Day is a celebration inaugurated in the early twentieth century to complement Mother's Day in celebrating fatherfood and male parenting, and to honor and commemorate fathers and forefathers. Father's Day is celebrated on a variety of dates worldwide and typically involves gift-giving to fathers and family-oriented activities. In 2008, it will be celebrated on June 15th in most countries.

My father passed away in January 2007 and father-in-law did in 1995. Now I have no one to celebrate on this particular day. Strange feeling...

Anyway Hubby and I will go to the graveyards, where they rest in peace, late in the morning to show them our love and then go to the nursing home to pick up my mom. I haven't seen her for about a month. I wonder how her condition is and hope that she still remembers me.

Our daughter is in Tokyo on business for this weekend. Yesterday she sent her father emails with pictures of Tokyo Tower and vivid-colored drink, telling that she will celebrate her father later on. (laugh)

Goya, A Bitter Ground


This is Goya and Tofu salad I made for the first time. According to the recipe, printed with a picture in a calendar pinned up on the fridge, Goya contains a lot of vitamin C scarcely lost even by heating. Hubby liked it a lot and ate most of them (laugh...)Tomato, eggplant, green pepper, cucumber, pumpkin, green soybean, okra, white gourd-melon...There are a lot of healthy summer vegetables. I wonder what dishes to cook using those ingredients, surviving coming hot summer.
