You Rice Me Up

Nov 24 2020

I love rice. Perhaps more than ice cream.

My grandma, who lived through the Second Sino-Japanese War in Shanghai, really dislikes pumpkin. There was a rice shortage. Only pumpkin was available.

And no, pumpkin didn't even come close as a substitute.

Rice makes you strong.

Rice keeps you warm.

Even the bowl you use for rice can help you look stylish.

You would hardly find an Asian household without a rice cooker. It is an essential appliance. It is a key to happiness.

Eating rice makes me happy. Eating it with loved ones is even better.

Here's the most loving thing I can say — I want to eat rice with you.
