Xena Crystal LC Huang Dinner time! 來吃飯喲!
Double-basil (home grown, not groan,) salad and corns.
雙色(紫與綠) 九層塔蔬菜沙拉- 自家花埔採地!

Basil reminds me of a small episode:
小時候不吃九層塔, 媽媽就鼓勵地說
"九層塔炒豬肉, 拿吃拿跳塔" (用臺語)
豬肉只有拜拜時才有機会嚐, 所以用雞蛋代炒, 也是非常奢侈的食物.偶一得嚐.
後來吃點素, 母親很担心. 告誡我說以前買不起肉, 才吃"不得已素"; 現在買得起,
再也不能沒螢养. - 這是母親在世時対我極重的叮嚀...

Xena Crystal LC Huang 吃完飯, 來唱首卡那西以的老歌
Note: 小時候聽文夏唱, 就以為是他寫的歌. 長大後知道是日本人的作品(還有其他更多的翻唱, 出現在黃俊雄的布袋戲裏) 後, 有點失望.

因是, 創作是多種時空情境, 與因缘际會的結晶, 而不只是天分與努力所能成就.
所以就釈怌, 也就跟著聽得唱著津津有味 :)!

 Crystal LC Huang Not too late for joining CVTC Art Club to share ideas, creativity and experiences.

Meet: Every Tuesday. 4:00-7:00 pm. at BEC 230, Eau Claire.
So far, we only offer one visual art class - a general survey type, while seemingly many students are interested in studio art courses too.
So, who else would like to be the Art Club advisor? I would like to collaborate with you !

Crystal LC Huang  Today, in one of my sociology classes, under a tiny fit of the early Alzheimer's teasing, we successfully discussed and analyzed Education as a pivotal social institution through functional and conflict perspectives. I also shared some of my perceptions and experiences about 2-year college vs. 4-year college teaching. Are you curious to know?

O.K., let me unselfishly share such a secret: in short, my previous teaching at universities in the Midwest with a Master degree I carried out my job pretty well - from my personal bias, while, later (maybe, moola could be a blame) I realize it takes 1.5 Ph.Ds, 3 Masters' and 1.75 Bachelor degrees just to keep my head above the flare during 14 years' teaching at a Technical college setting ! Ohh yes, it is exciting, challenging with lots of fun : via a 3rd language -that's the real, holy secret ! If you are interested in this episode, refer to - one of my blogs.

Crystal LC Huang Does Joe Biden say that the 2-year college is the US' Secret Weapon? A WMC : Weapons of Mass Construction? Mmm...Construct...? Secret, secret... ooohhh reminds me of Johnny River's song :

JOHNNY RIVERS - Secret Agent Man 1966
Johnny Rivers was born as John…

This is a Memorial Endowment Scholarship set up at CVTC in honor of the most important person in my life: Li-ling Huang.(黃麗玲) : my dearest baby-sister.  

She bravely overcomes her socio-economic adversities, and puts her heart and soul in helping the less fortunate people. She advocates for human-animal rights and the earthjustice, and is a community organizer and social justice activist. She works though all her life for the better society until the day she returns to the multiverse on July 3rd, 2016 at the age of 52.


Crystal LC Huang I remember Karrie right away at the reception banquet tonight. I was so touched by her field-study statement. A great learner, devoted mother with high academic achievements. I believe she will be a very caring and professional nurse in the near future.

This Diversity Endowment was set up in 2007 after my mother passed away (her last name is Tsai 蔡). I respect and was amazed by my parents who never got any bit of education, nor job skills during Japan's occupation on Taiwan, raising 10 kids with the best they could. In particular, my mother, she was an "illiterate" who could not read nor write, but believed in that the opportunity for a child to learn how to read and write can change his/her destiny, which was a ground-breaking idea among her contemporaries at that time.

Crystal LC Huang I just knew Molly was awarded this scholarship. I admire her career goals and ambition to take care of our environment for the sustainable concerns (I am a notorious dirt-lover and tree-hugger... too !) I am so happy for her that she won this scholarship.
