I asked mum not to cook cause I want to go out and eat. The other night when we went dinner at Pudu, on our way back we passed by Sg. Besi Wanton Mee Stall, that have been around since my school day, I told mum we have to eat here, so we go dinner there tonight.
Green Chilies Vinegar
Char Siu Wanton Mee (Small)
Mum order Wanton Mee with Char Siu Wanton small, the noodle texture was really good springy and the Konlau sauce also tasted right but the Char Siu was a bit dry and thin, used to be thick slices; the wanton and the soup was nice and light
Pork Leg Vinegar
The meat, still juicy and absorbed all the vinegar and ginger flavor, but I find it a bit sweet and too sour
Curry Chicken Mee (Medium)
I order mine goes with Curry Chicken and medium (1 and a 1/2 Wanton Noodle), with the curry sauce this wanton mee tasted really delicious, no wonder most of the patrons there order this, Curry chicken spices tasted fragrantly nice not too over-powered.
Rojak, RM4.00
Mum said the rojak sauce was good, but I think it just tasted so so only
 Tonight Dinner, RM29.00

Today's Meditation:
Do we need to make a special effort to enjoy the beauty of the blue sky? Do we have to practice to be able to enjoy it? No, we just enjoy it. Each second, each minute of our lives can be like this. Wherever we are, any time, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine, the presence of each other, even the sensation of our breathing. We don't need to go to China to enjoy the blue sky. We don't have to travel into the future to enjoy our breathing. We can be in touch with these things right now.
 Thich Nhat Hanh

"Each second of our lives can be like this." Can it really be true that we can fill every single moment of our lives with wonder and appreciation for the beautiful things in our lives? Is it possible for us to live our lives in a perpetual state of gratitude and appreciation? To be honest, I believe it is. What's the secret of reaching that point? Lots and lots of effort, I think, in order to cast off our ideas of how we think things should be and accept things for the way that they are. Only then will we see the beauty in everything and everyone around us.

When we do reach that point, we'll start to see just how sacred is the life that surrounds us all the time, just how beautiful everything around us is. Emerson wrote once that we start to think that life would be great if we just lived in some exotic place like Venice, so we pack our bags and sell our stuff and move to Venice. When we get there, though, we find that Venice is very nice, but we're still the person we were before we left--and life is very much the same for us, no matter how exotic our surroundings. How we see the world is more important than what our surroundings look like.

Enjoyment and appreciation are matters of choice. "Wherever we are, we have the capacity to enjoy the sunshine." Wherever we are, and whenever we're there. It's pretty simple, yet very hard to put into practice. It takes work, and it takes constant effort. It takes opening our minds and our hearts to the possibility of seeing, truly seeing, our surroundings and all that they hold.

Why should we have to go somewhere else to be happy, when there's so much right where we are that could make us so, if only we were to allow it all to make us happy?

I live now and only now, and I will do what I want to do this
moment and not what I decided was best for me yesterday.
