A little about the sweetness of life. The unfolding of new things and amazing things for that matter. Always choose the brighter side of life, the happier side, the joyful side and watch your life unfold into the abundant and fulfilling moments that everyone dreams about.
Her eyes were cloudy as small drops of tears made their way onto her blouse. She was simply hurt but the poor guy did not know that. He drove off into the unknown never to find out how she felt that day. Back into her little cottage, she tucked herself into her grandma’s cozy blanket trying to cry it all out.

She talked about how much she loved her suitor at the time. How he carried himself around, the impression she had about him from his mannerisms. How she knew from the word go that he would be her husband. It was absolutely amazing to watch how passionately she talked about her relationship with her husband, before and after marriage. You could clearly say that they were a match made in heaven. It was such a love story. I observed the couple long enough to know how similar their characters were and got mesmerized. That’s when I realized the laws we studied in physics were not really meant to scare us about science but were as real as ever. “Indeed, you attract what you are,” she concluded.
For our food Thursday, I am sharing delicious fried rice recipe. Gone are the days you would eat boiled rice alongside some sort of stew and that was it. Apart from pilau, this was the only way most of us had our rice, too oblivious right!
I can still see the look on his eyes, the appearance of composition and pretty much everything I saw, when we first met. Most of all I saw a gentleman who was and still is passionate about the Word, not in what he said but how his life unfolded before my eyes. I can’t begin to say how my heart skipped when he said hello (more like responded to my hello). Right now, I am struggling to type down due to the intensity of memories that are criss-crossing my little head.
I open up the door, happy that he is home but not showing it on my face; no smile. These are the moments I wish I did better only that, I let myself be clouded by the day events. Why is that? I am still thinking about the a hundred and one things I needed to do but haven’t, the food I haven’t finished cooking, the dishes that I tossed into the sink hours ago, the clothes lying around un-ironed…
I can’t seem to remember the last time I was in a class oh my! So this time I went for a cooking class with my delicacy conscious girlfriends. It was my first time to encounter freelance chefs. I know! Sounds awkward right? Coz we tend to think only I.T guys can freelance. Not anymore. Any professions with a high level of discipline can successfully freelance.
Years go by, life happens and experiences change you. Basically, how I pretty much describe my life right now. I’ve been through a lot until most things don’t shake me anymore. I did this photo shoot with my ten year old girlfriend and when I sat down to view the snapshots it hit me how much I’ve transitioned after baby. My goodness, I started feeling like an eighty year old already. Mainly because, I wore a top dress I used to wear when I was expectant. Ha! Who said you can’t wear your maternity pieces even after downloading, No one!
I was super excited for the easter holiday mostly because I’d catch a break and be with the most important people in my life. I was counting down, weeks, days until it was only a few hours. I only slept for two hours, how exciting can travelling get? Super exciting.
