[Instagram] Days Without The Boys

ImageDo I miss them, yes and no. My boys were away at their grandparents place up North for the school holidays last week. Had some time to kill. Did my fair share of window shopping, instagrammED more pictures, perhaps, and had a bit more time for myself. Whenever they are around, my attention would be on them more, naturally. Not a bad thing at all, I adore my two little boys (though they are so grown up **and bigger in sizes** by now). Well, like most people say, they will forever be your little kids!

Good food (home cooked and eating out), good time, good catching up with certain things but great that now they are back home, with us!

Hope you had a great week before and happy week ahead. Stay luminous, always *_^

[Instagram] A Little More Time, Please

ImageHow does one drain out that sense of sadness and leave behind the residue of a little happiness? It was a rocky one last week for me, knowing that someone as close and very dear to me in my heart as a moon to the sun is fast fading into the abyss of eternal mortality, and knowing that I can do nothing about it, except for spending a little more time. Each moment seems like a torment, physical and emotional. Her face and body says it all. From the depth of my heart, I know I don’t say it enough, but I really really do LOVE you, to the ends of the world. It is all right, it will be all right. You will always be here, close to my heart.

Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu

[Cooking] A Little Black Is Good

ImageImageImageBeen meaning to share this for some time. This was what I cooked the other night for dinner. Though it may (not) look appetizing, but apparently, black fungus is very good for detoxifying our blood and helps maintain good health for our kidney (I love these). So, no harm eating some “black”/ dark coloured food for our meals. I made mushroom soup from white button mushrooms (with potatoes) and it turned out black! (but it was really creamy, thick and delicious, my hubby will vouch for me *_^) So, I called this dinner “Black Dinner”. IĀ also fried egg with bitter gourds (which are never my sons favourite!). Nonetheless, not that important if it’s healthy, no? Haha. Better be healthy than be choosy!

Stay luminous and happy, always.Imagemushroom soupImage

Since we are on the subject of food, this was what we ate for breakfast yesterday, on a Sunday morning at Damansara Perdana. Since we moved away from there, my son, Aidan has been craving for TK Chong’s Chicken Hor Fun. Finally, we had a chance to go there, but we both realized that it tasted a little different than previously. After talking to the owner, only then we found out why. Apparently, the group of workers who used to prepare the dishes were no longer working there. At times, cooking is very uniquely “individualized”. Even though you may be given the same ingredients, each person’s cooking will come out tasting very different. This is one of my favourite FOOD BLOGS. It’s called My New Roots by Sarah Britton. She has amazing organic and healthy food recipes on her blog. Worth checking out! Here for more.

[Eating Out] A Meaty Affair

Image

We were all geared up, well, just my hubby and the two boys, for Despicable Me2 the movie the other night, so we had a quick dinner at this place that my hubby was going on and on, saying that I need to try. The kids also highly recommending me that I should. So, off we went. Not long after our order, an aroma filled the night air, and it made us even more hungrier than we already were! Out came all the dishes, displayed right in front of us, were, well, how should I put it, very sinful looking >_<

I took a sip of the soup, it was delicious indeed! Very flavourful and the meat were so tender and juicy. This is our very own Chinese dish called Bak Kut Teh (pork meat and a mixture of mushrooms, intestines, etc.) boiled in a concoction of herbal-licious soup. It was a satisfying dinner indeed. I was really happy with the yam rice. NOT that healthy of a treat, but definitely a must try ff you are a meat lover yourself!
