May 4th, Holiday

Part 12 of 68 in a series:

I had today off, so I spent some time at a friend’s home. I was lured over by my friend’s promise to cook dinner.

On the menu were spareribs (see picture), a prawn and avocado salad, and a tuna and perilla omelette. Everything was made from foods I love!! It was truly delicious. We chased our meal down with a beer while it was still light out. It was pure bliss.

Later we drank chai as we enjoyed the yummy cake I bought for dessert, topping off a wonderful day of epicurean delight.

And once I spied my friend’s Super Famicom version of Sim City (a city-building simulation game I love), I couldn’t tear myself away from it. It’s really a plain game. But it’s so much fun. I hadn’t played it recently, and I lost track of the time as I lost myself in playing “mayor”. Ah, I couldn’t have asked for more.

It’s been a while since I’ve had such a relaxed holiday.
