this thing call wanderlust
when my friends asked me if I have any travel plans planned out for this year back in january, my answer was a firm “No”. not that I do not intend to travel, but I find it very hard to plan so far ahead listing out the places I want to go, how many days I should spend there, where to stay etc etc. too stressful. but as we move to almost the first quarter of the year, I have finally narrowed down a few places that I will be visiting this year.
I would love to travel more within the asia region as I have not seen many parts of this ginormous continent. and since travelling within the region is not too costly, it will be perfect for a short holiday or just a weekend getaway. I will be going back to china in may, climb a mountain in july and making my first virgin trip to australia in october. as for work travels, I foresee making a lot of short trips to indonesia in the coming months which I am not quite excited about. was down with food poisoning the last time I was there.
anyway, I wasn’t feeling too inspired to work this morning so I did a quick search on various food in china and it leads me to this video. the making of the savory pancake wrap shown in the first thirty seconds of the video reminded me of my days in beijing. I ate that almost every day because it is simple and delicious. And then at 1:16, the roast duck shown is from the famous Da Dong Restaurant. that roast duck changed my life. Literally.
I am salivating as I am typing this.
