Asian Food Problems

All the sororities on Butler campus have chefs. Our chefs at my house at Wayne and D. Me and D have a love/hate relationship although if he saw this post he would say there is no love because that’s awkward because he’s our chef. Instead I am going to say a like/hate relationship.

It all started when I decided to give D a little grief about his Asian cuisine skills. Being raised on homemade Asian food my whole life I’m used to my mom’s authentic Asian food. Sometimes I can be a real pain in the butt when it comes to eating others Asian food who are not Asian. The things I am especially picky about are rice and any Japanese food. Chinese food and Korean food I don’t really judge on because I am not a good judge at all!

I’m sure D hates me when I do this. It’s not that his food isn’t amazing because it really is good! Everyone else doesn’t complain, but I just give my little critiques here and there. My mom thinks it’s funny, and she’s starting to realize just how Japanese in food she raised me. I think I am becoming more picky than my mom. There are some foods that I like that not even native Japanese like. For example, I love natto. Natto is fermented soy beans that you eat with rice. It looks disgusting but to me tastes amazing, to other Japanese not so much.

Natto with rice!

Also my mom recently has started to buy instant miso soup. My mom thinks it tastes really good for instant miso soup. I cannot do instant miso soup. I know that may sound like I am super high needs, but miso soup is only good when homemade. I literally think I could eat miso paste, just kidding I have before… That also is probably disgusting for some.

NO NO NO. I hate instant miso.

The point is that I miss authentic Asian food.

True Life: My iPhone Is A Champ

I honestly have no idea how I lived without an iPhone before I had one. I have my entire life on my iPhone from a day planner to memories of thousands of pictures to having every possible app that provides information on gas prices, banking, and all kinds of other things. Although when I realize half the things that happen to my iPhone I take for granted all the things I could be missing out on if I were to break my iPhone.

This weekend could have been one of those times where I completely demolished my phone. Unfortunately the genius I am I dropped my phone in the toilet. Why I bring my phone every where I could not explain to you, but it did fall into the toilet, and shockingly it is still working. This is all thanks to using an insane blow dryer and rice. Without those two things I’m sure my phone would be demolished right now.

The bag of rice that saved my phone!

On top of that my phone gets dropped all the time, and shockingly I have no scratches or shatters on my iPhone at all. I hope by saying all this I don’t jinx myself, but basically I’m really grateful that my iPhone is taking all of this like a champ, because I think my sister might kill me the next time something insane happens.

Until then I would just like to say take care of your iPhone, they aren’t cheap and as I am beginning to realize not everyone is as lucky as me!
