Good morning

@Min2206, @elan1, @Sleepy Owl, @Thong Thin, @sadthe1st, @MayanEcho, @Lmangla

I was sincerely hoping I could spend my Sunday watching and commenting on eps 5 and 6 of Tunnel and posting.

Instead I spend my Sunday in a vet clinic. My oldest dog is very poorly, I am afraid today I would have to say goodbye to her. I am flooded with tears.

 


Awww  @corey I don't like partings too -  be strong 
Pray your doggie will not suffer

im not a weakling :joy: I love seeing all those pictures so I can pretend to eat it with my eyes :love: 

 

tbh life is kind of tough when I go to restaurants or someone home to eat with friends and family and I just sit there and watch people eat :lol: I generally just eat in advance at home or bring snacks that I can eat LOL I used to wish all the time that my body could be normal but I should be glad that my health could be worse and that it encourages me to eat healthy for the most part :)

It somehow takes away a little of the pain.

 

I'm glad to hear that something helps to soothe the pain. I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard it's really good.

I made chai tea cupcake last week. It’s dairy free and gluten free (I used almond flour). I used almond/coconut milk. It’s also vegan (so no eggs). Instead of refined sugar (white/brown sugar), I used maple syrup. I also used almond milk yogurt :)

Actualy your "food" condition reminds me of a colleague of mine. We used to work together. She had a son allergic to virtually all foodstuffs. He lived on meat and things that can be made out of corn flour. But it was said that he could outgrow this condition. Is there any hope for you to get rid of these allergies eventually?


When I was a kid, it was not too bad but when I gotten older, it worsen. Also some of the food I eat also give me the irritable bowel syndrome (:bawling:) it’s so

embarrassing so I have to cut back on some other food that I’m not allergic to either. So my diet is generally very healthy. 
 

We tried but nothing changed :( it only worsen and I will have difficult time sleeping because my entire body itch especially my head (scalp). I can only pray and wish but maybe some day a miracle will happen  :)

true :( but I try to be creative and try to make things with alternatives. Some of my friends and relatives prefer my cooking (with allergy free ingredients)  than regular... haha I experiment until it taste good or at least decent :lol:


I’m allergic to gluten(so no regular bread and pastry), soy (no tofu or soy sauce), dairy, legumes(beans lentils etc), grapes, etc lol 

 

it’s fun to experiment food ingredients substitutes but can be costly :( 

wow, it must be difficult. in our culture, dairy is so much part of our cooking and culture that it would be very difficult to cut it out. in the summer months, we eat a lot of yoghurt to cool down our bodies. because it is sweltering hot here, yoghurt acts as natural pro-biotic and digestive aid.

 

I don't know how to say this in english but if people pray for something and they get it from God, then they sometimes pay it back by feeding people. in the hot sweltering summer months, these people will then put a booth on the road and give out free buttermilk to all who pass by. (buttermilk is curd beaten with water and some spices)

69662919.jpg

milk/milk products is also part of many  rituals and it can be considered highly offensive/bad luck to say no. for example, so when we move into a new house, we boil milk and it has to overflow. it signifies the house will overflow with happiness and will be a good place for the family. so we then add sugar (sometimes keep a small amount for elderly without sugar) and give -- it is really small cups and you cannot refuse. basically drinking the milk as guest or family signifies that you wish them well. so when my cousin brother said he hates milk (taste), my aunt was like "it is bad luck to not drink; just gulp it down and swallow! ":sweatingbullets:

 

we are slowly getting milk substitutes but I am not sure how far it will get accepted. for one, it is frightfully expensive. the price difference between regular milk and almond milk is 10 times! so only rich people can afford to have almond milk. but even if they can, am not sure how many will buy because of the way we cook. so traditionally nuts are cooked only during rainy and winter months as it is believed to add warmth to the body. the idea is during the summer, you take ingredients that cool the body down and is easier on the digestive system. so there are certain ingredients we will avoid during the summer as it harder for the body to digest because of the tropical heat. generally, my family avoid curries that have nuts during the summer. also I have heard this from many people that nuts and soy products should be taken in light moderation because it can also mess with your hormones. I don't know how far that is true but I have heard it from so many different people.

 

anyway, am glad that you have access to alternatives and dairy isn't a huge part of your cuisine. so easier to cut out. :)

TBH, I could not sit through Untamed. I was utterly bored for the first 20 minutes, made two attempts and dropped it. I think Wang Yibo, as handsome as he is, is a bit overrated. And I could not grasp what the main conflict of the drama was.


I think if you could fast-forward like in the first two episodes and get into the flashbacks when they were teens, it becomes more interesting, well at least it did for me :) also it helps that i read the novel :lol: 

 

—the main conflict is that the ML was framed for things that he didn’t do and overtime it shows what actually happened and how amazing and how selfless the main character is. He’s also wickedly funny but also a strong fighter. Also the relationships in the drama are so endearing especially with his sister. Their scenes always make me smile and cry :) her love for him is unconditional. Best sister ever. He’s actually adopted by a family, so not sister by blood. I love how misunderstandings get overturned one by one.

I won't say that I know how you feel.  This is not easy on anyone.  I will pray for you too .. that your pain and itch to be lessened and go away.  I have seen friends who suffer from eczema - they keep scratching.  What more yours?    Well, stay positive Chingu.

@Min2206   this is my priority, she must not suffer.  Today I go to my regular clinic and see if there is even a slight chance for her to live a little longer comfortably and without pain. If not, then I will say goodbye to her....

edit -  Hi @Lmangla  thanks for the info on milk / buttermilk culture



@sadthe1st Epi 18 is slow - have not seen the sub yet.  Busy, busy and going to be so, end of week.  Yea, hope Choi Sanggung's character will not be killed off here.   Fans speculating about the ending, me - come what may, just enjoy the drama as it goes - like the comical side of it.

WOW. Thank you for sharing about your culture. Very insightful. Maybe I would die of starvation if I live in your culture :lol: I get probiotics from eating fermented foods like kimchi and I still get probiotics from the almond milk yogurt (they add probiotics in it) also one brand of chips I eat they add probiotics in it (next time I will take picture of the package of the chips). 
 

I think you are trying to say that God bless us, so we should bless others in return :) 

 

interesting, free butter milk to cool off from weather. Whoa! I love learning these interesting facts!

 

Interesting custom :scream: That means I will offend many people and have no friends if I live in your area :( 


almond milk is 10 times the price difference? I will be homeless beggar :lol:

 

That is true that nuts and soy (I can’t eat soy anyways, since I’m allergic to that too) should be taken in moderation, well most food in general lol too much if anything is bad for you.

 

You right, I’m fortunate to live where I’m at :)

hi @Jillia!

@elan1, I sympathise with you on your IBS. It is something very very difficult to live with. I developed something like that about 8 years ago. I have no idea what triggers it, I suspect certain food - legumes mostly, so I cannot eat falafel or hummus, much as I love it - but also stress. The downside is, when I go to run errands or shopping, on a bad day I need to take a pill to stop bowel movements, otherwise it is just impossible to do anything. I suppose it will also stop me from travelling or taking vacations, not that I want or can to travel now!

 

ANyway, hug to you, my dear!

:7555_attack:

aww thank you for the comfort and encouragement! You are so kind :) I will keep fighting and move forward in life :glasses:

 

I’m sorry you have ibs too :( it’s not pleasant. Yes legumes is the culprit for most! Also too much starchy food or too much coffee or too much sugar too. 
 

oh no :/ I bring water with me everywhere. I drink warm water most of the time, even in hot weather lol I exercise all the time. It helps alleviate stress :) I play all kind of sports and go on hikes and walks. 
 

thank you :wub:

Thank you for support and encouragement :)

yea exactly; it is for big ticket prayers -- having a child, getting a job, getting out of debt, getting married -- basically if people have struggled with those kind of stuff for long time, then they will do things like give food to orphanage/old age home, feed stray animals or give buttermilk to all commuters. anyone traveling by with a car and bike can stop by and get a glass and quite delicious as it is often made at home by the family themselves. not usually catered. even if they order it from restaurant, the family still have to serve it themselves. sometimes, the family will be chatty and even share why they are doing it. in one instance, the family looked really well off (their car was expensive) but they had been struggling with debit in their business. so when they got out of debt, they gave buttermilk to commuters. it is something that is highly appreciated by those who spend long hours on the road like delivery guys and taxi drivers.

 

so yea, dairy is huge part of our culture, cuisine, rituals and celebrations. wedding food - floating with ghee (clarified butter). woman after giving birth - douse her food with ghee and  to recover. baby naming ceremony (after 100 days) -- give baby spoon of sweet milk/rice pudding (made with milk or condensed milk). death - few days later, we go to grave to sprinkle milk as part of our grieving and saying goodbye. so basically at every stage, dairy in all its forms is part of our life. if I am honest, I have no clue how vegans survive. :sweatingbullets:
