How to Make Tasty Mayo Marinated Tuna and Avocado - Video Recipe

These days, we see on TV that the oil price increase hit deep-sea tuna fishing industry.
Too sad... I love tuna!
How times have changed!!!
I wonder whether we are doing the right things for future generations...




Today I will translate my recipe using "sushi-su" (sushi vinegar or Japanese seasoned rice vinegar). It is a rice vinegar mixed with sugar and salt. The most popular manufacturer of sushi-su is Mizkan! Their products are also available overseas!

The slightly sweet flavor of sushi-su gives a small amount of mayonnaise a rich flavor, which is better for your health ;)

Crushed Cucumber Salad Marinated in Sesame Vinegar

Yesterday, I couldn't write my diary again :(
I was searching about Google Webmaster Tools (since it is a little job-related) and when I realized, it was already 0:00!
Time flies! I had other stuff to do, but I couldn't even start!

Weather here is cloudy and the forecast shows rainy days for about a week from tomorrow evening! Rainy season came back...
I went out to eat lunch again with my co-worker to enjoy this fine weather. I had a healthy set lunch menu of avocado natto rice bowl. It comes with salad, soup, dessert, and vegetable smoothie. The smoothie was really great!

Today, I will translate my refreshing cucumber salad! It is very easy. It is also my popular recipe at Cookpad! 48 people have photo reported it to me and said good at this point :)
I used Japanese cucumber. It looks like the picture on the right. You can also use English cucumber or mini cucumber. Those are close to it!

This morning, my boyfriend came back at 4am! He said he had a lot of work to do. I am glad I could leave the office on time. This is one of the reasons I cannot change my job even though I have a beef.

Okay, see you again :)
Hope I can stay up to finish my stuff tonight!!!

Yesterday, I went to the spa again. I had the third (last) free facial treatment. This time, I had a powerful vitamin therapy, which involves the use of ultrasonic wave. They say it facilitates penetration of vitamins A, C, E and beta-carotene 100 times more into the skin (compared to the first treatment). Hope it did... Anyway, I had a good chance to learn about beauty salon treatments!

I want to try to keep up my sense of beauty.
I believe this idea is important to keep one's youth!

Okay, see you next week!
Enjoy your weekend :)

Yesterday, I started to take a hot bath and massage cellulite (lymph).
I found this is the easiest way to remove the cellulite at home.
Am I easily swayed?!
But I always think it is better than doing nothing...

Okay, see you next week :)
