“New Band Kick-off” Cedar Park, 2019

This evening, Koa’s High School Band held their Parent Preview Concert at the nearby stadium. Last year, they had an amazing program and this year looks great as well. They have already worked hard in preparation for the marching season and it sounds amazing, but the important thing is that the kids seem to be having fun as they learn. Inspiring for all the parents to see their kids putting in the hard work and realizing the results. 👍

I hope you had a good day!

“Fuchico on the Temaki” Cedar Park, 2019

It’s a temaki sushi dinner evening! I prefer nigiri, but temaki is wonderful too. I mean, nigiri is a 10, and temaki is a 9… so both are great. 😀

I hope you had a nice day!

“Waiting” Georgetown, 2019

こんばんは。This morning, Koa and I headed to the DPS (Department of Public Safety) to get his driving learner’s permit. The wait at these places is pretty crazy, especially in summer, so we arrived before it opened and got in line. After a few technical snafu’s, I finally got the documents in order and Koa was able to get his permit!

Now begins the fun part… actually hitting the road. 😱

But seriously, teaching Bay wasn’t too difficult so I am not expecting anything crazy with Koa. Vroom vroom!

Snapshot

“Buddha and Cats” Cedar Park, 2019

Today’s photo is one of those “11:59” snapshots. I’ve been taking daily photos (started as a 365 project years ago) and sometimes, I haven’t taken a photo until the day is almost over. So, the last minute photo is an “11:59” photo. 😄 In our home office, we have a few figurines on the shelf next to some framed photos.

I hope you had a nice day!

Yakiniku Dinner

“Yakiniku Dinner” Cedar Park, 2019

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Tonight’s dinner was yakiniku, which is a Japanese interpretation of Korean barbecue. Because we live near an H-Mart Korean market, we can buy perfectly prepared meats for yakiniku anytime. Years ago, before the market opened, we’d buy large cuts of meat, and then I would slice the semi-frozen meat with a meat slicer. It was 面倒くさい! Thankfully, those days are over.

Preparing for yakiniku is mainly chopping up the desired veggies, getting the dipping sauces for the meat ready, and making sure you have enough fuel in the canisters for the stove. It’s no fun to run out of flame during the meal and not have a full canister ready to replace it with. 😲

Tonight we had four kinds of meat, two types of dipping sauces, cabbage, jalapeño, onion, asparagus, cheese, and kimchee. An ice-cold beer is also nice!

I hope you had a good day!
