My good friend Lynnette recently finished renovations at her new home, which she also calls the EcoSoho. This project is well-documented on her website, so do check it out to find out how you can make a cozy home out of very tight budget.
Lynnette made vegetarian tom yam (with a dash of soy sauce) hotpot and chawanmushi for lunch. Simple, yet a thoroughly enjoyable home-cooked fare I haven’t been able to enjoy here in Shanghai.
Browsing Lynnette’s bookshelf, this book caught my eye – “The Art of Racing in the Rain“. It reminded me of Sam’s “walking between raindrops”. Quickly, I removed it from the shelf and read the summary. About a dog who talks! In love already. Lynnette said I could borrow it. I said, it’d be months before you see it again. I’ll probably bring it with me to the USA, I added. Lynnette then had this fantabulous idea for me to take a photo of this book at places I travel to during my trip – the traveling book – and that is what I will surely do 🙂
An excerpt I lifted from Amazon:
“Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.”
