MY STACK OF MEMORIES

  1. Lovley photos, Jesh. I’ve lived in several countries as well, and I think that sort of experience opens one’s mind up. I can identify with what you say about getting cravings for nostalgic childhood favourite foods…
    Thanks for taking part in the Travel Tuesday meme.

  2. I really enjoyed this post! I’m sure the homemade doughnuts will be a wonderful memory. I’m interested in trying an Indonesian restaurant. I could only find one near me. It’s in Lake Forest (Indo-Ranch).

  3. Love that shot of the tree against the red brick, Jesh. We don’t realise how much we depend on electricity until it’s not there. What I would miss the most, is no internet and no way of charging my phone.

  4. We occasionally get power outages here and then I find myself with a queue of children wondering why the internet won’t work and the TV has a blank screen! That’s a long time for you to be without electricity. It’s scary how dependent we are on it.

  5. Wow, that was a seriously long time to be without power! You’re right, we are too dependent upon power. Seems like I can’t survive without the internet, and without power, no internet! Homemade donuts sounds like a fun experience with a happy and satisfying ending. Enjoy your weekend!

  6. I love the header with the deer. We live on the 27th floor so are very dependent on electricity. Plus we are on our computers a lot, use e-readers and just got rid of our landline phone!

  7. That’s a long time to be without power!! 😦 I had Indonesian food for the first time (in Amsterdam) during my trip to Europe in the mid-seventies (probably many reading this who don’t even remember those dates!). I loved bami goreng, but have probably only had it once since then. I think I should find a recipe and make it. Another dish I discovered on that time, in Italy, was spaghetti carbonara. Unlike bami goreng, I’ve made that many, many times and it has become my signature dish. 🙂 Now I’ve made myself hungry!!!

    1. When I’m back home in Nov I should look up the recipe for you- bami goreng is one of the less complicated dishes. Do you know that many Chinese restaurants in the USA serve this dish? ( it may be Chinese originally, for in Indonesian dishes the very thin ransparent rice noodles are used -these are also different from the Japanese Soba noodles) Have a recipe for pasta carbonara, but don’t know how it’s supposed to taste!

  8. I wonder how it would take (a week, 2 weeks, months) before we accept that we may not have as much electricity to use as before. The Mama and the Husband’s mom left us a lot of candles, so we may be good for awhile. 🙂

  9. I’ve always enjoyed going to Sacramento. When I was working in education I went there once or twice a year for meetings. I always liked walking down the mall to Old Town for dinner and drinks by the river. – Margy

  10. We really are dependent on electricity. We lost it once (about 7 years ago) for 10 days. We got by, but it was interesting.

    I love the picture of the staircase.

    1. Ten days is a long time! Most residents here have a generator, because it happens a few times a year. The building with the staircase is abandoned, but it must be because it’s part of old town (of the gold rush) that they haven’t deconstructed it yet.
      About your comment of grad. school, am glad you found a better fit with business than with chemistry:)

    2. I was lucky to find that fit. My advisor set me on a better path. I wrote about that a couple of years ago. Very good advice.

      We thought about a generator but we rarely lose power. That was the only time in 35 years we lost power for more than a few hours.

  11. Oh no! I didn’t realize your part of CA had such a strong wind storm and power issues. Truly that makes life challenging. I sympathize with your password issue. If I don’t write mine down for travel, I’m out of luck. Your daughter sounds amazing. I enjoyed your update. P.S. Life’s challenges with aging parents have kept me from staying up-to-date on blogging. I hope to get back in the groove soon.
