The love we give away is the only love we keep.

Yesterday, I was shining brightly.
It sure has been awhile.
I almost forgot what it felt like to be a lamp post.
The shadow of a loving couple.
What an oxymoron.
Watching L* protecting A* from the rain.
While I was drenched behind.
Hahaha. I kid I kid.
Thanks for dinner :)
Daorae+ @ Solaris Dutamas is pretty good.
Speaking of Friday nights, I realized that I have not been going on "date nights" with Mike.
I wanna go somewhere nice. PFFFFT.

I was mistaken when I kept referring to these Vietnamese rolls as 'Korean Popiah'.
It was because this is served in a Korean restaurant.
Looking at these pics, makes me feel like making a trip there again.
D-I-Y spring rolls.

Wakon Japanese Restaurant, Damansara Uptown
Went out with Mike for a bowl of ramen a week ago.
The ramen which I had (pork broth with butter) wasn't to my liking.
The butter/oil in the broth was a little overwhelming.
Every spoonful of soup into my body
felt like layer of oil coating my heart.
I preferred Mike's spicy tomato soup.
The barbecued stuff here is pretty good though.
The pork neck on a skewer which we had was really juicy and tender.

The Mother's Bday Dinner @ Home
I enjoy cooking but it's really tiring at the same time.
I have always wondered how do the chefs on TV make cooking look so effortless.
The menu that my sister prepared.
I was in charge of the appetizers - the tiger prawn aglio olio and cauliflower soup.
Cauliflower soup topped with sauteed mushrooms made from scratch.
I love blending things.
I love seeing the vegetables turn into a thick creamy puree texture.
My sister was in charge of the mains - the roasted pork belly which was super yum. Crackling mmm.
My sister baked a lovely orange birthday cake.
Cakes in my house generally have a lifespan of 3 days.
We're all avid cake eaters.

What do you love?
I met a man who once told me that every waking day,
he thanks God for giving him another day of life.
Life, as we all know it, is unpredictable and full of uncertainties.
And so, we worry about tomorrow - constantly making plans for the future.
And there are those who are luckier than most,
those who are able to chase their dreams
that are beyond necessities -
A swankier car.
A bigger and better house.
A holiday home.
At the end of the day, does this really matter?
Some use it as a means to justify their goals, ambitions - to motivate themselves in life.
? To make it BIG - monetary wise?
It is pointless to set your heart on material longings
or to even be envious of others who are
living a better life than yours.
There's this quote that I once read that is stuck at the back of my head -
"When you look at what you don't have, you have nothing, but if you look at what you have, you have everything."
Reading about the tragic natural disasters have been making me reflect about life.
There are many who have lost their loved ones, lost their house, their home - literally
And yet there are many who already have
in their lives but are still not contented.
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." -
