{Food Review} Cantaloupe Sky Dining

I’ve always had a secret dream to be a food reviewer/blogger, but often find myself failing at taking beautiful photos of food as I just can’t wait to taste it! Good eats, I’ve realised, is something that must look good for the eyes, as well as the palate. I’m always impressed with those who have taken great photos of the cuisine, but often wondered whether the servings are cold after making it pose pretty for the multiple photo angles.

I also deduce that food reviewers are armed with 3 things (which I aspire to achieve): (1) a good camera + decent photography skills (2) an eye for detail (3) a good memory to recall how certain foods apply to the taste buds, not just at present but also in comparison to others they have tasted in the past.

I’m no food reviewer, but sometimes I pretend to be one when I come across great food in a good location. It also serves as my personal recommendation for you to try out some unique cuisine which won’t create a dent in your wallet. Read on for today’s experience.

Book Quote | The Lost Symbol

Today, I have finally completed listening to the audio book of The Lost Symbol, and in the final chapter, this quote hit me hard:

“All around the world, we are gazing skyward, waiting for God…never realizing that God is waiting for us. We are creators and yet we naively play the role of ‘the created.’ We see ourselves as helpless sheep buffeted around by the God who made us. We kneel like frightened children, begging for help, for forgiveness, for good luck. But once we realize that we are truly created in the Creator’s image, we will start to understand that we too must be Creators. When we understand this fact, the doors will burst wide open for human potential.”
Dan Brown, The Lost Symbol

[Book Review] Love, Rosie by Cecilia Ahern

Rosie and Alex are classmates and the best of friends since they were 5 years old. They love to hang out with each other, tell each other everything and have decided they will be best friends for life. They don’t seem to need other good friends to spend time with or anyone else they can pour their hearts out to. All up to the age of 17 when Alex has to move to the U.S. because his father got a job there. Hence, distance comes between them as best friends and possible romantic interests for now, but not before making a pact to apply to colleges in the same city of Boston together. Until Rosie gets pregnant at 18 and everything changes.

Making My Personalised Mala with Moolamala

I got introduced to malas last year through my friend, Shia Lynn Toh, founder of The Artsy Craftsy, who was selling them on her creative shoppe. I was attracted to the colours, unique charms and tassel at the end of the long string of beads, so I bought a few to wear and hang as decoration.

I later discovered that malas are strands of 108 beads plus a “guru” bead, traditionally used for meditation, chanting or prayer. I noticed that yoga teachers and students sometimes like to wear them.

Jamie Oliver’s Italian Herb Pesto Pasta with Grilled Vegetables

It was a lazy Saturday night in. Amidst a busy weekend filled with workshops, meetings and 2 family gatherings, I managed to spare time to cook a very quick and simple dinner composed of, essentially, pasta and grilled vegetables.

The ‘glamour’ factor of the dinner was Jamie Oliver’s Italian Herb Pesto ready-made sauce. I love my pestos, and I am still experimenting with various store-bought ready-made sauces.
