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.

Soulmates

What are these circular things?

soulmates01

Oh, they are salt and pepper shakers.

Salt and pepper goes together.. What is life with just one or the other?

“Are you my soulmate?” Mr Salt whispered to Miss Pepper.

Like salt and pepper, it’s better when we are together.

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.

Raspberry Delight-O

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.

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! 😉
