Why the 4 month absence?

Hello friends, followers, bloggers, internet browsers and readers,

I’m very sorry for having left a cliff hanger which was my latest post on January 18th http://obsessivenutritioncompulsive.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/audrey-cafe-and-bistro-desserts-review-super-scrumptious-sweets-and-a-lovely-atmosphere/. I called the post a cliffhanger as following that I had completely stopped blogging without any notification, and left readers hanging on any possible food adventures that may arise.

So, what could be the reason for my four months absence? And why precisely four months? And what could be that certain entity that co-erced me to not log in to WordPress at all?

It is nothing exciting: I was simply away in China for a Language and Culture course which went on for four months during the gap between the end of high school and start of college.

The course was in Shandong University in Shandong Province, China. And definitely, this trip involved food and more food experiments i.e. trying out native food materials, traditional recipes, snacks, etc. Not so much cooking as I really didn’t have time and the equipments, what with all the class schedulings and sight seeings.

Soft tofu in spicy sauce (soy sauce, sesame oil, chili, etc.) – 毛家 Mao’s House Restaraunt. This was a restaurant which served mainly Mao Zedong, leader of the Chinese cultural revolution, favourite dishes. One of them which includes this spicy soft tofu.

But all in all, I hope to be able to share with you recordings, pictures, and etc. of food and my travel experiences in China, as much as I can before college begins this fall.
