Time is a magical spice making up flavors. A single bite of food could take us to a certain memory clip immediately. When we had our first bit of food cooked by chef Bruce and Sara Naftaly, We taste the original.

Shouldn’t it be normal that the beef raised with humanity? Shouldn’t we know the neighborhood butcher? Shouldn’t the veggies grow in seasonality not far from us?

We are living in an era of being fast, but Bruce and Sara is still doing things in a slow way using old recipes with new ingredients to pass on the past sensation and past flavor.

Watch episode 1.3, Take a slow bite of time!

Hello Diudiu Bus passengers,

The new episode is up today! We feel so grateful to document Bruce and Sara’s story in this short film. It is about time and flavor. It is about taking time for food, taking time for your loved ones, and taking time in life.

It is still mama Ching writing this newsletter. After having baby Diu, our family automatically moves on to a fast pace mentally. We are still cooking our meals most of the time. We are still taking time to go outside, hang out with friends, party?!, go hiking, climbing, skiing and so on. It looks we are doing pretty good, but somehow my mind is constantly moving or maybe it is just part of parenting to constantly have another tiny human in mind.

Hey friends, parenting is hard! Let’s just be honest there is no superwoman got everything figured out effortless. When Asu was filming Bruce and Sara, I was there with baby Diudiu hanging out. Sara and I had wonderful conversations about parenting, career, and food! If I only use one word to describe her, it would be incredible. She is so sincere and strong mama I admire! She is strong to hold everything together in a broken world, but she is also soft being a loving mama and wife.

Time goes on really fast. Bruce and Sara still adds on love after 28 years of marriage. I feel parenting is partnership, but marriage is love, patience, and understanding. hmmm, we are still young trying to figure everything out. Yep, I need to love my red head husband Asu a little more! :D

Sorry to call him red head rooster and make fun of him.

Hope you all got time for your loved ones! Life is busy, but connections made life all different.

Hello Diudiu Bus backers,

Life is not easy, but every time I think about you, yes, it's you! We actually got power and energy to continue this journey sharing the stories worth sharing. Because you are reading it and you are watching it! 

We already got on road living in our slow-ass veggie oil powered VW Synco for 3 weeks. Life does get slow as we hoped, and I (mama) finally got time to sit down to keep you all updated. (What got in this 3 weeks: farm visit, van got oil leakage, rain, rain, rain like dogs and cats, Diudiu got fever for 5 days, fridge got power shortage and it burnt! and of course life goes on with more miscellaneous.) 

SO FAR SO GOOD! #HomeIsWhereYouParkIt We Love It! We are all happy and healthy now! 

Papa Su got our first film edited and posted today! I hope you watched it already, if not, I have to say it's not about our stories. So does our journey is not all about our stories. The entire Diudiu Bus project is about everyone's story with nature, food, love, humanity, sports, and something real happening in life. 

'Summer Time Colin and Alexandra' is a love story about family, relationship, music and the earth. From the first time I know the Proctor's family, my soul just magically got attracted and blended with this family. When I watched Papa Su's edit, I started to know why I love this beautiful family. It is all about grounding. For this season, in yoga it's Vata season, It means transferring from summer to autumn. It also means grounding. In life, we all need some grounding time to remind ourselves of being who we are. What is beautiful of Alexandra and Colin's family is just being themselves and opening themselves to nature, love, and connections. 

English is not our first language, but love is all our first natural language! Hope you enjoy this film at this grounding season of the year to be yourself! You are beautiful as you!
