Life from time to time you look back and forth and decide. How it has been and how you would like the future to be?? I've gone through. Career here I am talking about and the career evolved over the years until I have decided to change. Enough of working almost 24 hours - at work and work again back home. And doesn't help you have a selfish idiot bitchy boss. Bitchy of course I'm sure you know its the woman and the woman I am not sure if knows how to manage or even speak diplomatically. Well, she is not the main reason because coupled with lots of other things too.
Decision has been made to take a break before I decide the next course of action. Right!!! Perhaps I'll tell you about my future plan but right now, this soup. I loved soups when the half-half is away because its a convenient dish (read more at Old Cucumber Soup) - chicken, Chinese herbs mix, kei chi/wolfberry, dried longan, crushed garlic, ginger and spring onion for garnishing. This is the soup - nourishing and delicious.
