並且說: Are we gonna let the Caltech chemists think they work harder than us? :-)

Hahaha, well, the 40hr work week is just a randomly/arbitrarily created number right?

There is a saying in NY: "There is no such thing as a 9-to-5 job that affords you to live in Manhattan."

Do what you like. Like what you do.

Cheers,

Not quite…

我記得我在應徵實驗室的時候,有一位和我面談的老師很明白的說:如果你說不想在晚上工作,或者你週末不想來實驗室---也就是說你不打算成為有名的教授的話,那也隨你,反正我無也所謂,我自己已經是有名的教授了。

我當時真是一整個傻眼,倒是他後來也沒答應收我,大概看出我對吃餐廳的興趣大過吃實驗室外的餐車吧。

Hahaha.... I like that... dude has a sense of humor.

Speaking of labs and cooking, did you get Myhrvold's cookbook? It always sounds so interesting reading about it in magazines etc, but just can't quite can't around the price yet... urgh.

Cheers,

Myhrvold的食譜我只是聽說,還沒親自翻過。要花錢的話我寧可先買el bulli或alinea 的cookbook吧。或許有空去圖書館借來看看。

Speaking of El Bulli.

I was at a Ferran Adria speaker series at the 92Y in NY a couple weeks ago. (He was in NY to promote a book)

It was very interesting that the people who are very successful in their field, have more in common with other successful people in their field, than people in their own field.

The way Ferran spoke about how to analyze what you see, being focused and thinking outside of the box sounded exactly like Ray Dalio, a Forbes list hedge fund manager.

Anyways, after 4 years, I leaving NY and moving to California at the end of April. Going to be busy crossing off a few last restaurants off my "NY Bucket List". Will let you know how they go.

Cheers,

W

Hey Wilson,

關於你說的那些人,我完全同意你的觀察。有一句話不是說,好吃的菜都是一樣的,只有難吃的才個個不同 (忘了出處了)。應該是類似的道理。

祝你去加州一切順利愉快,天天喝酒喝到爽翻天!

Good luck!
