Julia Child was a legendary american lady who became a French Chef against all odds. She worked as a USA spy in WW II based in China where she was first attracted to food by the Chinese cuisine, then after the war living in Paris where she enrolled herself in “Le Cordon Bleu” French Chef School. She was honored as the Cover Lady of the Time Magazine for transforming Americans’ kitchen, also received Honorable Doctorate Degree from Harvard University.

I remembered taking the hot French Onion Soup in a Parisian restaurant, near the 1,000 year-old Cathedral “Notre Dame de Paris” (where Victor Hugo’s story about the “Hunched man and the Beauty” took place), in cold 2005 winter. With the melted cheese and french bread covering the serving cup of onion soup, it was very delicious!

馬雲這席話倒不假

Chinoiseries 《汉瀚》[中/英/日/韩/法]

★★ 馬雲這席話倒不假:
Jack Ma immutable Quote

世界一直變,
沒有人會在原地等你,
告訴您的孩子吧!
World is changing
Nobody is waiting for you here
Please inform your kids!

打火機出現, 火柴消失。
When lighters appear, matches disappear

計算機出現, 算盤消失。
When calculators invented, abacus vanishes!

CD出現, 錄音機消失。
When CD emerge, radio recorder totally lost

數位相機出現,
膠卷底片市場沒了…
When digital camera appear, film industry perfectly gone!

消費者直購出現,
傳統市場生意萎縮了。
When consumers direct purchasing from vendors/manufacturers, traditional middlemen business contracting

智慧手機出現, 4G出現,
回家不用電腦了。
When smart phone invented, especially in 4G era, PC world end, hardly see someone use it at home!

微信, whatsapp出現,
簡訊沒人要發了。
Short message, whatsapp emerge, nobody use SMS anymore!

並非誰奪走誰的生意,
而是人們更懂得接受
新事物!
It is not being someone intend to steal or destroy somebody business, instead, we must always prepare to accept new things/business/megatrend/thinking

有人問馬雲, 你為什麼
那麼成功?
Q : Someone ask Jack Ma, why are you so successful?

很簡單:
《我在做、你在看!》
很多人一生輸, 就輸在
新事物。
A : very Simple!   a lot of people…

《從無限算起-聚焦數學家》張益唐

纪录片: Counting from Infinity

3000 years ago Euclid proved infinity of Prime numbers, but conjectured also infinity of twin primes :
(3,5), (5,7), (11,13)….
Some with gap of ‘4’ ( Cousin primes)
(7,11), (19,23) , (29,31)…
Gap of ‘6’ (Sexy Primes):
(23, 29)

The Twin Prime gaps (2,4,6 …) are bounded by max. 70,000, (min.2.)

Terence Tao mobilised the Internet community ‘Polymath Project’, using Zhang’s Sieve Method, reduce 70,000 to (hopefully) 16.

一个电锅走天下: 海南雞飯 Hainanese Chicken Rice

Savoir Vivre -> 活学活用

一个电锅走天下!
(With One Rice Cooker, Tour the World !)

This is the Singapore ‘National’ Dish — easy to make ! Watch this Best video using only rice cooker !

For overseas or local students living in hostel, use the minimum cookware: a (normal) rice cooker; also don’t need a full chicken if only for 1 or 2 persons, just the best part of chicken: chicken thighs (鸡腿).

Watch “(HD) RECIPE: Hainanese Chicken Rice 海南雞飯 ( with rice cooker )” on YouTube –

Note1 : To immediately cool the cooked chicken for a ‘QQ’ (tender, al dente) meat, use ice water better than running water.

Note 2: For more fragrant rice (but less healthy), use little chicken fat (from the chicken backside) to fry the rice together with ginger, garlic etc.

Note 3: (Optional) For more sophistication in dish display (切鸡腿摆盘), watch this video.
