See You Again My Hometown Cuisine; See You Again My Beloved People
The anxiety and fear creeps into my family drop by drop when my departure nears. Tough, it is hard, all the happiness and love could be perpetuated through pictures. When we see those pictures, we know that we will never say goodbye.
Food connects people; the smell of it, the shape, the taste, the color, and all the ingredients that make up our memory will accompany us all along no matter where we go. In China there is an old saying, "when you think of a specific food, actually you are thinking of the person you share that food with."
The food in Edinburgh will be very different from the food in my hometown. Even though I believe I will love them both, I know that no meal in the world could compare with those I enjoyed with my beloved people: my parents, my granny, and my best friends.
