Love at first bite

Today in history - my very first taste of panna cotta. Love, at first bite. Every bite leaves me wanting more. Sold, for life.

every moment was you

"…….I want the kind of romance where even if every second doesn't sweep me off my feet, just a little hug erases the fatigue of the day."

Carina did the sweetest thing this evening. She came up behind me while I was sorting the fridge and gave me the most unexpected hug from the back. Thank you, sweetie - for showing me love just when I needed it most. You erased all my fatigue.

"Sometimes, we create our own heartbreaks through expectation"

"Sometimes, we expect more from others because we would be willing to do that much for them."


I reached out. Several times. But got nothing back. Can't help but feel that we're going into the same cycle (for the third time) of miscommunication again.

Happy birthday.

Saree showcase

First time ever in a saree in the office. Was hoping for Best Dressed but clearly I wasn't the best. Taking a picture with the Best Dressed is as close as I can get. :D

Carina's 1st birthday

Today our little sweetheart turns one. I can still remember the first time we laid eyes on her, exactly at this time, one year ago. How fast time flies. It's been an amazing one year and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Happy 1st birthday, Carina sweetheart.
Thank you for making parenting such a joy this past one year, for bearing with us as we learn each day to be better parents. You are everything that we've dreamt of and hoped for. May your special day and every other day bring you as much happiness as you are bringing to all of us. We pray you'll grow to be a brilliant and beautiful child, filled with love, kindness and patience for those around you, both young and old. May the good Lord continue to bless you and keep you and may His face shine upon you, for all the days of your life.

With many many hugs and kisses and love,
Dada and Mami

I'm not a baker but I wanted to make an effort for this special occasion. The biscuit base was too hard and the cream cheese didn't form well cos I had too little gelatine added. It didn't taste too bad though!

The actual product - so far from what I planned and imagined it to be.

Ready to pop the "champagne"!

A bathing ape

Bumped into a bathing ape while loitering in a mall in Shanghai.
I remember it being your favourite.
Sometimes remembering hurts too much but remembering is the only way to keep the memories alive; my only return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.

So thrilled that Carina can now recognize me as her mummy, not just in person but in video calls as well! The smart genes are strong in her ;p
Time to get her started on the next assignment now - alphabets, numbers and shapes! :)
