A Wedding That Will Move You

I think this is very touching and it deserves a post here.

Pay to suffer..

I don't know what triggered me but I guess I wanted to do something outrageous again after a long hiatus.
Not really outrageous outrageous, but then again, it's something you will not do often.
So I registered myself for KL Towerthon....
I basically have zero training and zero stamina nowadays. Really wanted to build it up again but so hard to find time (excuses)...
It was really tough for me this time. I don't remember it was that bad previous three times. I stopped to rest more, a lot more. At one point, I can feel my heart beating so fast, it feels like it's going to jump out anytime. It took me twice the time I took the last time to reach the finishing point.
So, I guess it will be my last Towerthon.
And my dream of running a marathon is....further and further away...*sobs*
On a lighter note, really like The Oatmeal...

Happy Father's Day

It's been a few months since the day you were admitted to the hospital. I still remember those few long days spent in the hospital with you. You had all of us worried sick.
We are grateful that you managed to overcome it. Though you are not as strong as before, I do hope that you will try to be stronger. It may not be an easy journey ahead.
Day by day, I can see how fragile you've become. I remember you used to carry the fat me when I was a kid. You can stay out in the hot sun at the backyard half the day doing gardening . You can walk multiple times to the market and not get tired.
I know I am hoping too much for things to be the way they used to be. Now, I just want you to be happy and pain free. We will all be beside you, always.

Happy Father's day, Dad.

Food review: Royale Vietnam, Starhill

I am a sucker for deals vouchers. So when I saw Royale Vietnam in Starhill on a good deal, I quickly bought a couple of vouchers. I was having high hope of this place but it was rather disappointing. Well, not all dishes were a let down but I still feel that the best Pho and rice vermicelli salad is in Australia.

The Pho bo dac biet - beef noodles soup with flat noodles, is quite flavorful but the beef was rather tough. Soup is not quite hot enough to give it that ooommppphh...

Vietnamese spring roll. Should have ordered the fried version. This tasted very bland. But what saved it was the sauce. 

 Pineapple fried rice also tasted bland. We added in the sauce from the springroll to make it taste better.

I find the vermicelli salad not bad. I love this Vietnamese dish. What makes or breaks this dish is the sauce. Lots of it.

Lemongrass chicken is quite good too.

What I enjoyed most is the Vietnamese Drip Coffee. Very pricey though but it's worth the coffee kick.

Everyday is a blessing

Everyday I wake up, I know I should be thankful. Thankful for the people who loved me, thankful for the roof that shelters me, thankful for the food on the table and thankful for all the beautiful things in life. Yet, some days I just feel like shit. Feel down and moody and just wishing all bad things will go away.... sigh. Life can't be a bed of roses.
