Fun week August 25, 2014

Filed under: food,Friends — Jung @ 10:45 am

Project taking good care of myself starts with flying colors this week. Took the refresher driving lesson (got over my fear of driving since I almost killed myself crashing a car something like 4.5 years ago), got new contact lenses with stigmatism correction (so I can read music and books better), got a fabulous facial (and got complimented by my esthetician Barno Big Smile, being kind to people (learning to be more compassionate, patient, just to be kinder), visit MOMA as often as possible (check, check, check), starting yoga class (check). Next steps are, going back to my meditation class, getting my passport renewed, apply for US citizenship (yep, all that 21 pages of form to fill). I am on my way! Smile

Visited MOMA for some fun experimental live exhibition yesterday. Went home made some fabulous sous vide salmon with veggies from my local organic CSA box for my old student Ariel who is now all on her own and being stronger than any kid I know! I am so happy she reached out to me after all these years. The last time I saw her, she was a little kid!

Anyway, I am thankful, for everything. Just feeling thankful. Wish I could tell all the people that had been in my life that I thank them for enriching me, and for so many endless things that they did for me. I am thankful. Project taking good care of myself had given me a lot of clarity and I am also thankful for that Smile


Vermont 2014 August 20, 2014

Filed under: food,Travelog — Jung @ 12:36 pm

Another really fruitful music making experience at the Central Vermont Chamber Music Festival this summer. Like last year, I was the chef for the big gala, and played the gala concert right after — what fun!!

Got to perform from memory the piece that I wish to die performing on stage if I get to chose how it goes when the time comes — Rachmaninoff Sonata for Cello and Piano — with Peter Sanders. We played our hearts out of this huge romantic work, I couldn’t asked for more…

Also got to play with the amazing Arturo Delmoni in Tartini’s Devil’s Trills. And the three of us played Smetana’s Trio which was written after the death of the composer’s little daughter. What an epic and tragic composition… This has been one amazing time for me. I am humbled by the whole experience…

tons of love from me to this fascinating world of music <3

Here is the menu:

Sous Vide Steak with Truffle Vinaigrette, Caramelized Onion, and Torched Heirloom Cherry Tomato
Caramelized Fig with Mascarpone Cream and Prosciutto
Shrimp Berger with Avocado Mango Salsa
Porcini Mushroom Pizza with White Truffle Oil
Rosemary Heirloom Tomato and Fetta Cheese Tart
Sous Vide Chicken, Liver, and Smoked Pork Belly Terrine with Pistachio
Kalamata Olive and Sun Dried Tomato Tapenade
Grilled Eggplant, Tomato, and Yogurt Dip with Mint
Sous Vide Drumsticks with Hoisin Ginger Glaze

ps love love love my Nomiku sous vide machine!!


Codes, codes, everywhere June 11, 2014

Filed under: Coding — Jung @ 10:06 am

After finishing a bunch of concerts at the end of April, switched my brain back to coding. My first time building an ecommerce system, learned so much in the process. Got tons of help from books and programmers who so selflessly contributed on stackoverflow.com and individuals like sanwabe.com. I am grateful.

Work is still in progress, now hosted on my site, and will be ported to client’s site after completion. I won’t tell you what they will be selling, haha — it is beyond your wildest dream Wink

Gonna try hard to finish it fast before I have to get back to the summer of Rachmaninoff Cello Sonata and Smetana Piano Trio… <3

MOMA Spring Garden Party June 6, 2014

Filed under: My favorite place on earth — Jung @ 10:25 am

So nice that all the galleries are open again during the party that few people actually care enough to go through them. Nothing beats a totally empty gallery for private viewing Wink

We went to Ippudo for their fabulous Ramen again, now it is a tradition after MOMA parties Smile

I love MOMA.


Gauguin Opening Reception at MOMA :-)) February 27, 2014

Filed under: My favorite place on earth — Jung @ 7:30 pm

Have been waiting so impatiently for Gauguin: Metamorphoses at MOMA, and the day finally came!! Read a bunch of stuff about Gauguin preparing for the exhibition, fascinated! Came across this little story, made my day:

“Gauguin’s relationship with Van Gogh was rocky. Gauguin had shown an early interest in Impressionism, and the two shared bouts of depression and suicidal tendencies. In 1888, Gauguin and Van Gogh spent nine weeks together, painting in the latter’s Yellow House in Arles. During this time, Gauguin became increasingly disillusioned with Impressionism, and the two quarreled. On the evening of 23 December 1888, frustrated and ill, Van Gogh confronted Gauguin with a razor blade. In a panic, Van Gogh fled to a local brothel. While there, he cut off the lower part of his left ear lobe. He wrapped the severed tissue in newspaper and handed it to a prostitute named Rachel, asking her to “keep this object carefully.” Gauguin left Arles, and a few days later Van Gogh was hospitalized. They never saw each other again, but they continued to correspond and in 1890 Gauguin proposed they form an artist studio in Antwerp. In an 1889 sculptural self-portrait Jug in the form of a Head, Self-portrait Gauguin portrays the traumatic relationship with Van Gogh.”
