Weird looking but delicious 拍黄瓜 (smashed cucumber).

Photos: Happy Year of the Rabbit!

On Saturday, I hosted an early Chinese – Lunar, if you want to be politically correct – New Year dinner party where I cooked common Chinese food for my family and good friends. I forgot to take photos until most of the way through the meal, but I documented the evidence of my cooking as best as I could. My dad also made egg drop soup, but we ate it all before I got the camera out. I shared my shrimp cashew recipe in this post, and the roasted fish recipe I used is in Chinese here.

Sadly, we set off no firecrackers to scare ghosts away from our house because they are illegal in Seattle, even sparklers. Happy Year of the Rabbit!

腰果虾仁 (Shrimp Cashew) dish

Mostly eaten 烤鱼 (whole roasted fish)

Stir-fried broccolini

Weird looking but delicious bioled 饺子 (jiaozi) made from scratch. I think I'll fry them and buy pre-made skins in the future.

Live Tweets on Crisis Communication from PRSA Puget Sound’s Annual Meeting

This morning I attended the Seattle area Public Relations Society of America Chapter aka PRSA Puget Sound‘s annual meeting. The name of the event is a little misleading because the Chapter usually holds meetings with speakers at least once a month. This one was special in that we voted in new Chapter board members, approved National Assembly Delegates, and honored a new APR.

The programming highlight of the event was Dave Marriott’s speech on crisis communication focusing on his client, alleged murderer Amanda Knox. I chose his speech as the subject of my first ever live tweeting session, focusing mostly on the public relations points as he interwove an overview of the case in general with information on his crisis communication strategies and challenges.

I’m not sure I’ll ever live tweet again unless it’s something particularly time sensitive as it was hard to keep up and fully pay attention. I plan on taking notes then blogging in the future, but live tweeting was a good exercise.

Thanks to @elyssa_rae for the Twitter love this morning. Tweets compiled below in, of course, reverse chronological order:
