The Air That We Breathe

The haze readings in certain areas have improved up north but according to my son who is residing down south, the API reading has rise up to 300 few days ago.  Schools for both primary and secondary were compelled to close for the day.  Due to the haze, my son has been coughing for the past few days and I have cautioned him to wear a mask and drink more water, besides that, if necessary, try to stay indoors as much as possible.  Hope the haze will be blown away soon... it is really hazardous to our health.

Just a moment ago, I read a website article on Vapor Intrusion, something linking to the air that we breathe.  As written here, accidental releases of volatile chemicals, such as solvents or other petroleum products, that leaks into the subsurface could result not only in the soil but the groundwater would be contaminated as well.  Once the soil is contaminated, the soil gas moves toward and into houses and buildings, thus it is known as Vapor Intrusion.  Lately it is said to have given much assessment and mitigation of the VI exposure pathway, it has become the most highly researched and regulated field in the environmental industry.  It is also written that the potential that building occupants may have unknowingly be breathing potentially harmful levels of impacted air due to the nearby environmental releases, it prompted much action from the state and federal agencies to impose conservative regulations and guidelines to the affected area.  This action needs some expertise advice from the Vapor Intrusion Consultants, they are the best people to be sought out specifically to evaluate the VI exposure pathway.  They resolves challenging environmental problems involving political, technical, regulatory, legal and financial issues with both business-oriented strategies for property owners, businesses and municipalities.

After reading all that, I now have a bigger image of how important the environmental air is to us.  We need healthy air to keep our body system free from more toxic embedded in our body.  If each of us play an important part to our surrounding area by keeping it clean, we can be "wealthy" in one way already, after all, as the saying goes, "Health is Wealth."

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
