On the way from Virginia to Rainy Lake.
The terrace of the cabin with the view of the lake.
One part of the cabin where dad re-built it. It looks neat.
The Star Wars toy of my son, a gift from his nana.It was around 8.30 pm when dad was setting up the movie at night. The summer in Minnesota has late sunset and since it was still bright in the evening I played with my lenses. It looks chill. Here’s where I use my laptop to write this blog, edit the photos in Lightroom, and to sneak in to check my work emails. If you’re working with me and if you’re reading my blog, please lah don’t write to me during my holiday. ha ha! I will catch up with ya all when I am back to Singapore. Allow me to enjoy this beautiful place for a few more days. My shareholder Sebastian gave this book to me before my trip to Minnesota. I really like this book, The Hard Thing About Hard Things by Ben Horowitz. According to him when he read this book during his business trip to China, Ben Horowitz reminds him of me. Many people underestimate Ben but from a struggling start-up founder he made it far and become successful in his 30’s. Ben Horowitz is now a venture capitalist and helping many start-up founders. Sebastian told me during my birthday, “Ben and you have similar life story. He made sacrifices for other people. His responsible decisions made his company successful. He is a strategist but not overly showing it to people so his competitors didn’t see it coming.” Well, I’m glad he thinks of me that and not just someone who is addictive to selfies and photography. lol 😀 And Sebastian is right, I make responsible decisions for other people and I also have plans to be a VC in the future. For now I enjoy learning and I am embracing the new challenges in my life. I enjoy reading this book in the small cabin in our lake house where I have a quite time to reflect in life.
ON LUNCH: Chicken, Fish or Steak?I’m a pan Asian so I always have cravings for rice whether it is for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I knew that travelling back to the States my daily cravings would shift to less carbs but more on meat and fish. Chicken isn’t necessarily a popular meal at the cabin because dad will always prefer to have deep fried walleye fish or his traditional BBQ steak. The fish consisted of medium to large size of filet walleye with baked potatoes and tartar sauce. The steak is a large T-bone, roasted in charcoal traditional BBQ, and with side dish of veggies. The servings are big and no one ever left hungry. **burp. My favourite? Oh, I love the small side of steak with ranch sauce. I’m not a big fan of chips or other local veggies but I like the taste of the ranch sauce for meat. I experienced it in my first trip in Houston, Texas back in 2013 and since then I always have ranch sauce whenever I have steaks, fish or chicken. It’s just simply addictive.
Behold dad is making his traditional BBQ steaks. Yum.
He marinated it well with dash of spices and salt.
Here’s dad, the greatest steaks BBQ maker. 🙂
