You can never imagine how a simple cold soba can make one so happy right? but it does. I never used to eat cold soba when I was home – in Asia – I avoided them like a plague. My excuse too much calories but now – I eat them as soon as I can find them. The simple affair with the cold soba reminds me of how we take a lot of things and people for granted – we think we have a lifetime with them – but when they are no longer available to you – you will then cherish it and be grateful for it. Then can you appreciate it – and treat such simple food – with admiration. A simple food, a simple affair – cherish your food – cherish the people around you – you don’t have to treat them with rarity only when you can have them no longer.
