Garlic

190416 garlic

A lovely head of garlic..

Love it or hate it, minced garlic is an important ingredient in chinese stirfry.

When I was a kid, my mother would give me the important task of mincing garlic.. It was an easy task, and I enjoyed doing it.. The simple task made feel useful in the kitchen.

While mincing the garlic, I would drift into my daydreams… Thankfully, there were no injuries before dinnertime. 😉

Ps: I don’t like the smell on my hands. If only there is a way to get rid of it.

What is Love?

Is love a feeling..

.. or a force of nature?

circle-rings01

From courtship.. to engagement.. to marriage.

circle-rings02

A commitment between two.

Is love an inevitable stage in life?

.. or just a commitment made up of compromise and sacrifice?

Blueberry’s wedding band..

Is love just a four letter word?

.. or something I will never fully understand?

☁☁☁☁☁☁☁☁

A band made of precious metals..

.. a circle symbolizing a union of two.

In good times and bad..

.. may our rings remind us of the love we share.

Earlier this evening, I went to google “food named after people”.. and was quite surprised to find a list (in alphabetical order) in Wikipedia.

It was full of notable people.. Royalties, religious people, celebrities..etc. The list was so long, I stopped reading at C.

If there is a food named after me, I hope I have done something right with my life.. 🙂

What kind of food would be named after me?

Definitely not a savoury dish, cos they sound strange.. such as, Raspberry de pizza.. Raspberry o’burger.. Cream of Raspberry? That’s so weird!! Haaahaa..

An ice-cream dessert would be a fine idea.. Since I’m feeling creative, let me dream of a dessert in honour of myself.

Raspberry Delight-O (Delightfully Orgasmically good lor.. abuden?)

Scoops of Raspberry ripple

Strawberry sauce

Whipped cream roses

Diced fruits.. mango, kiwi, strawberries, nata-de-coco..

How to cook: Put the above ingredients together.. The exact portions of the above doesn’t matter, as long you’re happy with the amounts!

Garnish: Cherries… and cocktail umbrellas (for that tropical feel..lol).

Verdict: It might look strange, but I think it will taste nice.. 😀

Daydreaming aloud..

If I have a chance to spend a year abroad, I would love to spend it in one of these places..

1) Hong Kong

Raspberry and Blueberry's favorite escapes

Blueberry and I fell in love with Hong Kong, when we were there.. The cultures, modern and traditional architecture and delicious food were amazing. I miss the desserts there!

2) Australia

Natural scenery.. Beautiful cities.. Cute Koalas.. Delicious coffee.

I haven’t heard of any country as eco-conscious as Australia and I’m quite inspired by their efforts to save the animals and environment.. (Besides the horrible koala culling incident.. 😦 )

Would love to study ecology there, but it will take me more than 1 year.. and I doubt my grades can get me accepted into a uni.. I spent my days in school daydreaming, sigh.

Nevermind about that, I could go there for the adorable koalas. They are irresistibly cute!

Unless I strike lottery, it might not happen anytime soon.

Meanwhile, let me continue to dream about it.

Good night, everyone. May your dreams come true! 😉
