The weather's been slightly wonky and frosty, and I've been hankering for some good 'ol comfort Korean food.
So I cut up some fatty pork, fried it slightly, then dumped in a bottle of store-bought kimchi, let it simmer for 30 minutes, plonked it on hot, steaming japanese rice, and sat in front of the TV with Super Hubs while we watched Barcelona cream MU.
A few weeks ago, we celebrated the "don't ask" birthday of my mostest dearest friend in Luxembourg.
She's an amazing character, with the biggest heart and kindest spirit. I love her tremendously, and it's not just me - everyone who knows her does. She's truly awesome. And happy. And nice. And adorable. And funny.
In fact, in our everyday conversations, no matter what our moods are like or what has happened, she always asks me to tell her a 'funny story', and then she tells me one. So while we're wracking our brains to think of something 'funny', the previous woes or complains we had are pushed away by funny stuff.
It's funny. :p
Her birthdays are legendary. In this past one year, I've heard so many tales about previous parties, and all of them include very funny incidents, involving a whole lotta super awesome people, finger licking good food, copious amounts of great wine, litres of champagne and non-stop hard hitting shots of vodka. Seems the birthday girl is the only one standing at the end. And this year I got to witness it for myself.
The theme was 'funny colors'. And from here on, I'll let the pictures do the talking. It was a crazy, crazy, funny party. You'll wish you could have been here.
I've been away for quite some time now, haven't I?
Have you ever had the feeling that there are some days or weeks or months where things happen so quickly and life changes so unexpectedly and drastically that you can't even begin to fathom it in your head?
How do you jot stuff like that down? Especially when you haven't begun to know what to think of it yet? Or when you don't know the answer to the questions like, "what's next?"
Worry not though. Because despite it all, I feel appreciative and very contented. Because I know that everything's that happening is unfolding exactly as it should be.
After all, that's what life really is about, isn't it? Making the choice to be happy every step of the way.
It helps too, that people you love are magically present when you need them the most. And the people that matter stick by you like bees to honey.
I'm blessed. I truly am. And I know all of you are too.
