但愿人长久

《水调歌头》~ 苏东坡(宋)

“明月几时有?把酒问青天。

不知天上宫阙,今夕是何年?

我欲乘风归去,唯恐琼楼玉宇,

高处不胜寒!起舞弄清影,何似在人间?

转朱阁,低绮户,照无眠。

不应有恨,何事长向别时圆?

人有悲欢离合,月有阴晴圆缺,

此事古难全。但愿人长久,千里共婵娟。”

Some Good Sharing

I got this great sharing by Delicious Weekender. As I read, I find that most women, if not all, need to remind ourselves of these important facts. Do read on and enjoy. Thank you Delicious Weekender for this wonderful sharing.

This is what she has shared:

1. You are not your worst critic. You are your best friend.

2. Accept that you'll never look like the chick on Smallville and be comfortable in your own skin.
Confidence shines from inside and translates into very attractive exterior beauty.

3. You are the culmination of several generations of ancestors gone. Your birth has a purpose no matter what you think of yourself. Accept yourself so that you can realise that purpose.

4. Be responsible to yourself. What passes your lips should in essence be medicine to your body. Desserts and snacks are more so food for the soul and not the body. So be conscious of that fact.

5. Exercise. A good run, pushing your body to its limits does wonders (click here).

6. According to studies, Stomach fat is the most dangerous fat there is (click here). So no matter how big or small your rear is, if you've got a paunch, work now to reduce it (click here).

My 3rd experience

I have gone through this for the 3rd time. I couldn't remember how I felt when this was done the 1st time, it was 3 years back.

For the 2nd time, in 2007, it was a very painful experience as the person handling me was inexperience. I will never go back there for any other services.

It was this morning that I went through it the the 3rd time. It wasn't done in the normal setting, but under private practice. It was a smooth procedure. However, the after effect was also excruciating.

3 times, I have gone through it 3 times! Not too many women have such experience. And I hope my own gender friends will have no need to go through what I have gone through.

You may be wondering what did I go through for these 3 times? Well, they call it D & C, dilation & curettage (read extract below to know what is it).

Doctor said my level of estrogen is very high, therefore affected my period cycle and pattern. In short, I have suffered much physically and mentally because of this problem. I really hope that this is my last experience and I do not need to go through any of those painful moments anymore. This is my prayer ... ... ...

=========================================>
*What is dilation and curettage (D&C)?
Dilation and curettage (D&C) is a procedure in which the cervix of the uterus is expanded (dilated) so that the uterine lining (endometrium) can be removed with a spoon-shaped instrument called a curet or curette. The procedure is performed for a variety of reasons. Most commonly, this surgery is done in order to help determine the cause of abnormal uterine bleeding. It can also be done to help determine the degree of abnormality of the endometrium in cases of
cancer or pre-cancerous cells that are detected by an in-office biopsy. D&C is also sometimes necessary to remove tissue after a miscarriage.

**Why is a D&C done?
In general, a D&C is used to help determine the health of the uterine lining or to remove abnormal tissue. Occasionally, the procedure can correct some of the problems in the uterus such as polyps, scar tissue, or tissue overgrowth.

so sad ...

So sad ... yesterday night, DH & me went to Thomson Plaza to have our dinner. Unfortunately, my DH lost his wallet inside Han's Cafe. We went around the place to look for it, but in vain. Lucky thing was that, he has only 3 credit cards and S$30++ in his wallet only. He has another wallet with all the important cards like ID card, ATM cards etc. Just treat as 破财挡灾(to salvage some situations with money).


After the incident, DH told me that in fact he didn't really want to go to Han's to have coffee. He felt kinda restless as we walked towards Han's. Don't know if this is an omen that something will happen later? True enough, this incident happened right under our nose. Sigh ......


Sometime, we have to trust our instinct. Of course, it is not always accurate. Anyway, this whole thing taught me a good lesson to be always alert with our personal belongings when we are in a crowded or public place.

发,发,发.........

多数人生日时,不是自己做蛋糕,
就是从西果店买蛋糕来庆祝。
我呢,就自己做了发糕来与我的家人分享。:-)
希望他们能够发!发!发!

我没有添加任何色素,因为不想家人吃“化学品”。
我妈说很好吃,皆因我放了一点椰浆,所以比较香。
非常高兴家人都喜欢吃蒸的蛋糕。
希望我每个生日都能为他们做一些他们喜欢的糕点,
那我就很满足了。

My Birthday Post :-)

Yesterday was my birthday,
DH brought me to the place we used to go when we were dating -- Sembawang Park.
It was in the evening, the sun was setting,
quickly grap my camera and snapped this pic.
美丽的晚霞,伴着你我,
人生的路途,有你陪我,
漫长的人生旅途,
不再孤独地上路。


Though it is still school holiday, Sembawang Park
was not too crowded yesterday (maybe it was weekday).
DH & I enjoyed the light breeze at the jetty.
We held each other hand,
bringing us down the memory lane,
we remembered the night where we spent
at the Sembawang Park, just wanted to view
the beautiful sun rise the next day. :-)
These was one of the "crazy" thing we did. ;-p
On my birthday, he brought me here,
to remember our sweet days together,
as well as bringing me to Beaulieu House Restaurant
located at the hill of Sembawang Park for dinner.
(picture below, the white colour building)

We ordered our food and sat down at the restaurant
and looked at the seaview.


The sea was calm and the surrounding was serene.
I felt so very "幸福" (happy).
"幸福"because my DH loves me dearly,
and also I can walk my life journey
with him, and come what may,
he is there for me.

Thank DH for making my birthday a
memorable one. I really appreciated it
from the bottom of my heart.
Love you my dear :-)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
With the soft yellow lights lighted up,
the restaurant looked so nice and comfortable.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These were the food that we ordered. The dishes name are on the picture itself.

Verdict of the food in Beaulieu House Restaurant:
The food itself tasted very nice.
Especially the scallop aparagus.
The asparagus was very crispy (爽口)
and the scallop very sweet and fresh.
The mamite chicken was my favourite dish.
The chicken was coated with a layer of malt (I guessed)
which made it so tasty.
The salted cuttlefish was crispy and nice too,
just that a bit salty for me.
Overall the food is good. However, only one comment,
the portion is kinda small.
Thank goodness both of us were not very hungry.
If not this portion won't be enough for us. :-)

幸福是如此简单

拥有幸福,是每个人的梦想。
但幸福是什么?
住洋楼、养番狗?
有金子、有车子?
吃鲍鱼、喝鱼翅?
拿名牌、驾名车?
... ... ... ... ...等等
你是这种类型的人吗?
幸福,其实很简单。
愉快的心情、
健康的身体、
和乐的家庭。
幸福就是如此简单!
拥有愉快的心情,
会让你觉得样样事如此美好,
进而让你的身体感觉到你的快乐,
身体就会健康起来。
当你觉得快乐,无形中,
你的快乐感染了家人,
他们见你快乐,
他们也快乐。
因此,和乐的家庭形成了!
那,洋楼、番狗、金子、车子等重要吗?
他们只是陪衬品,不是主角。可有可无。
有,当然是bonus,没有也ok。
但,没有愉快的心情、
健康的身体、
和乐的家庭,
纵使拥有那些陪衬品,
你会觉得幸福吗?
答案就在你的心里。

Still a long journey to go

I love to cook simple and easy homecooked meals,
and bake simple cakes with not much of details.
I also like to take photos of my food.
However, I don't really present my food in a nice way
like other "professional" food bloggers,
I just aim, shoot and upload my food photo :-p
Blogging about my cooking & baking experiences
(though not much of an improvement lately),
is a way to let myself remember
how I have changed from a person

who know nuts about baking & cooking,
to someone who appreciates it very much.
I know I still have a long journey to go in my
culinary skills, but I believe that my skills
will be refined over time. :-)

Spaghetti with Tomatoe & Mushroom Sauce
This honey baked chicken thigh was very tasty. DH liked it very much. However, we bought too
little of the thigh meat. DH said must bake again
in the near future as he has not enough of it ... LOL
I just marinated the thigh with
a pinch of salt,
a teaspoon of oyster sauce,
5-6 tablespoons of malt (麦芽糖),
and a little chicken powder.
Bake in preheated oven at 220*C for 20 mins
or till meat is tender and golden brown.
After 10 mins into baking,
turn the meat to the other side and bake.
Serve with vege of your choice.
*******************************************************
Baked this Apricot Yogurt Cake 3 days ago.
Forgotten to take picture of the whole unmoulded cake.
The picture of the sliced cake was so ugly, but
still want to put here to share what is it called
unsuccessful slicing :-)
