i told a friend over brunch, that i wish there will be a strong gush of wind… so strong to disperse the pollutants. the air in Beijing is getting ridiculous ~ you cannot see anything beyond 100m. i think this is the worst pollution i ever experiences in my 7 years in Beijing. In fact, the index climbed to as high as 993 on a particular day!
it was reported that there will be strong wind on Wednesday.. in chinese, they say 三四级风 .. i was wondering, is that enough? we probably need a 六级风！
ok – this banana bread ~ i really love it i ate an entire mini loave myself. i derived the basic from Flour’s Famous Banana bread recipe but added chocolate essence, and VIA coffee powder! i mean, cinnamon goes well with chocolate and coffee brings out the aroma of chocolate. so hey, why not?
the result was absolutely stunning. many thumbs up! the downside is, i did not measure the amount of chocolate essence i put in.. it was agar-agar… hmmm…
Pollution index: 332 (hazardous)
