Few months ago amid the pandemic and stay at home for indefinite time, I bought some crafting projects for the girls and myself. I haven’t done crafting for ages because “such a waste of time”. I was so wrong. The act of monotonous action, doing something actively but not having to focus on it, it’s an invitation to inner peace/talk if one needs/wants, it’s also instant calming action for racing mind.
When Sofia and I started, we were super excited since the girls just visited Paris last year and have good memories of Eiffel Tower. But then somehow we all abandoned it for few weeks. Husband said: you will never finish it!
Then I started doing it with Sofia every weekend and we progressed very fast. When it’s clear that we will eventually finish it, Sofia spent the whole 2 hrs of quiet time in the afternoon on the floor to do it. And finally we finished it yesterday!!!
Big lesson: you persist, you conquer.
I also finished the book and reunited with my long-time beloved KABOCHA. This was my comfort food for over a decade ago. I would have a bowl of kabocha every night to comfort my soul. But when we moved to Manila, there’s nowhere to find it unless last week. I saw an ads for online vegetable delivery that features it in their ads and I immediately order 5 to try and they are fantastic!!!!!!!! I think I need to order a dozen more before they run out!
My favourite food that I would be happy to eat for the rest of my life everyday
- dark chocolate
- almond butter
Food that I like to eat in a regular basis
- roasted vegetables (caramelised preferably)
- baked/pan fried tofu
- avocado toast on ezekiel bread with all bagel seasoning
- savoury oatmeal
- pad thai
As I write them down, I can that I’m truly WEIRD! hahaha….
What food would you be happy to eat every day for the rest of your life?
Gratitude: sharing hobby with Sofia. She’s in the age of wanting to do everything with me and I am enjoying it. I hope we can share hobbies when she gets older too.
