But I offer a valuable counterpoint to the ravages of the arrested male psyche as thematically embodied in Gordo. Once you see that I am able to keep my head above water, then the fact that Gordo cannot do the same seems all the more poignant and whatnot. I mean, Gordo just keeps putting himself in a lake of fire. At the end of the day, everybody poops. And some of us poop in the morning, too. But I could have been in it, if the writer had really wanted a foil-on-foil smackdown. Because Ericfoil would have handled that scene totally differently from Gordofoil.
But at the time of the incident, I was actually at a Bikram class, where I did my first-ever crane pose. Guess not. Presumably somewhere in China.
However you wrote that you were high school sweethearts? Where did you meet? Where did you go to high school? After you married, you began a food marketing and consulting business. Where were you living when you began your business? So what do you do for a living now? And where do you live now? Are you in Canada or the US? And in what city? All the sharing seems to come from Amy. Will we hear from Jacky? I was sent off to a small town in North America. This website is our full time job now! Perhaps we can answer some of the questions later in a FAQ section.
This was a great place to share your journey. We have tried many of your recipes and have found each one to be very thorough and detailed. You have taken the guessing out of it so that we can prep, cook and enjoy. We look forward to trying more of your tested recipes and to following you.
Hi Cherri, Thank you for being a part of our journey and inviting us into your home! Take care! Hi Em, Thank you for taking the time to read our stories. Thank you guys for all your hard work! I, too, am a food blogger and I focus on holistic living, organic cuisine and delicious flavor!
I used my new Instant Pot for the first time yesterday, to cook some steel-cut oats. They turned out perfect! Tonight, I tried a few more things, including your incredibly easy and delicious Savory Egg Custard recipe.

I found your site in a Google search, and am very glad I did! Thanks for producing and sharing your incredible blog with us! Thank you so much for sharing the heartwarming and inspirational story of your lives. Your stories are similar to mine in ways, and touched my heart. Then, my beloved wife was diagnosed with cancer and underwent major surgery.
It was, as you said, a wake-up call. Fortunately, she is cancer-free today, but still suffers from complications due to the surgery itself. Coming so close to losing her deepened my love for her as it had never been before. You truly realize that each day you live is a gift from God, and to never take it for granted. Keep up the great work, and Happy Cooking! Thank you for taking the time to write to us. Thank you for your encouraging words and for putting a smile on my face.
Your life stories are warming and I enjoyed reading them. I enjoy Asian cooking and appreciate what you do. Hi Dean, Thank you for taking the time to read our stories and writing to us. My sweet husband gave me an Instant Pot for Christmas. I am sitting here looking at the box. I have not even opened it. I am very intimidated by it. I am very excited that I found your website as I was looking around for recipes. The fact that you have recipes for beginners is something I really appreciate. I promise I will pull my Instant Pot out of the box and make something from your site this week.
Your story hits home because my husband suddenly lost his hearing almost 2 years ago now and suffers from tinnitus as well. Hearing your story is inspiring as it has been extremely difficult to go through with my husband. Thank you for sharing your story and love for food. Dear Stephanie, Thank you for taking the time to read our story and leaving us a comment. I know how difficult it is as my dad is near-deaf also with tinnitus.

Hello lovely Amy and Jacky! I was researching on recipe for cheesecake in IP and your site popped up. Before I tackled on the recipe I perused through it first to make sure that it was easy to understand and with enough details because I am not a baker at all. Indeed, your recipe and instruction were very thorough. I have a few more minutes before it is done.
I just wanted you to know that it was very touching and inspirational. It brought tears to my eyes to read about your disability But yet you have the passion to bring joy to our lives with the recipes that you provide for us. Thank you so much for your effort and time.
I have only been having this instant pot for a month. I am looking forward to all your recipes. May God bless you. Our time on earth is short, but the impact one makes can be bigger than life. We try our best to do what we can! I just got my Instant Pot 2 days ago and my grand daughter brought home a roast to make for dinner.
Ah, a perfect opportunity to test drive my IP. Started looking for recipes for pot roast and one of the recipes was yours. I decided to try it, and as of right now it is cooking under pressure. I have high hopes. Thanks for your efforts. I pray for your healing as nothing is impossible with God. Hi Peter, Thank you for taking the time to read our story and write to us. Congrats in getting your new Instant Pot!! How did the pot roast go? After visiting your site so many times and trying your recipes, I just stumbled upon your story. Hi Iva, Thank you for taking the time to read our stories!
So are you currently in Zhongshan? Or you have to fly back and forth to help out at the restaurants? I was flying back and forth and spent a total of 8 months there setting everything up. Hi Iva, Just realized I missed your reply message! Huge congrats for your new baby!!!! Hi Amy and Jacky. My daughter is from China and loves Lo Mein. Do you have a recipe for Lo Mein? Aloha Amy and Jacky, Your recipes are amazing, but more amazing to me is your personal stories.

I snagged pounds of them on sale last night, and I just finished prepping a rub to use in lieu of sea salt and pepper. Hi Michael, Glad you found us and congrats on getting your new Instant Pot!! Have lots of fun cooking! I just stumbled across your site since I now have an instant pot and am learning how to use it! I opened it yesterday and made spare ribs, hard boiled eggs and beans. Not all at once. But, I loved reading your story, I have tinnitus in my right ear and I struggle with it but have not yet told everyone. I sort of go on a need to know basis.
I still have some hearing in it but the loss is very obvious to me as is the annoying sound. I miss silence. I have never thought about it as a silent disability, but I am starting to see how it truly is. I am looking forward to exploring your recipes and learning more about how to use my Instant Pot! Besides the annoying sound, not being able to hear well, it also affects my ability to focus. Showing my loved ones the video I posted has helped. I also like to have some soft music in the background when I work. Hope this will help you too. God bless you, and keep up the good work!!
Hello April, Thank you for your blessings and well wishes! Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipes. I was feeling so guilty to be a working mom as eat out food is generally oily, not healthy for my young kids. I recently bought an pressure cooker and found your recipes.
The recipe is so convenient and quick that allow me to cook healthy food for my kids after work. My kids love your recipes — especially beef stew and spaghetti, they even request to pack it as lunch the next day. Your recipes make an impact to my family. Hello Ada, Thank you for sharing your experience and for your kind words. Being a working mom is very difficult especially with young kids!!

Loved your comments, life is a wake up call! I too have tinnitus since childhood but mine is intermittent. Much harder to learn after , I learned this working with the deaf community. Just a thought. Best wishes. Hi Melisa, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a comment. I learned a bit of ASL back then and got Jacky to learn a teeny bit with me too..
I better pick it back up again and use it more. Thank you for your work with the deaf community! Blessings to you and may you have good health!! Love that I found your site! I learned to cook a lot of Chinese food from my mom noh mai fan, tomato beef, steamed black bean spare ribs, ong choy with awesomely stinky shrimp paste, etc. My mom slaves over soups for hours and even overnight with homemade chicken stock with pork bones. I live in Los Angeles so Chinese ingredients are easy to come by, but I often need to know the Chinese name. My mom never says them in English. Keep the great recipes coming!
Thanks for leaving us a comment and so glad you found us too!! Hello from Denver, Colorado. So glad to have found your website, and read your inspiring story! Thanks for sharing..

Thank you for doing what you do everyday!
