This morning I was very busy. Today is the first day I start to be a volunteer at Oxfam. I find people here are very kind-hearted and generous. There are many bags of items donated by them within 3-4 hours, like books, shoes, clothes, accessories, sports equipment, toys, etc. Some of them are new and even unpacked. Some are with famous brand names. The other volunteers are very helpful and friendly. I had a very good morning to be there.
When I finished my work, it was about 2 o’clock. Then I rushed back home and made a quick and simple lunch – fried pork belly with spring onions and a bowl of egg noodles. The pork belly is succulent and it is a nice pair to fry with spring onions. I enjoy cooking for ‘one’ again.
