Life of Pi

Tonight, Sweetie and I watched Life of Pi in 3D. There were a lot of good points in the movie and it struck me in a very positive way. It stirred up emotions in me… I suppose the movie might hit you in a certain way if you’ve dealt with animals before, or had a pet. The fierceness of Richard the Tiger reminded me of my cats at home. Taming him reminded me of Blue Eyed cat, my kitty who passed away last year. We shared a special bond that only I and he will understand.

Japanese/Korean Night

Saturday night and I was out with my Sweetie. Originally, I had wanted to take him to Little Tokyo but it was quite far and at 7:30 pm it just wasn't feasible because it was getting pretty late for dinner. So I decided that the next best thing was to visit UCC at Eastwood City.

I wanted to still have Japanese for dinner. There was a lineup of pasta in UCC's menu so I decided to try one of them. I ordered the Unagi and Mushroom Pasta which didn't disappoint. The unagi was soft and had a sweet sauce which blended well with the cream pasta. Sweetie ordered the Seafood Risotto.

After dinner, we decided to try Caffe Bene, the new Korean cafe which had just opened in the area. I ordered the Bene Gelato in Creamy Caramel and the hot Misugaru Latte. The Misugaru tasted a bit like toasted rice. It was ok, but we were really craving for some Chai which they didn't have. The Gelato was a bit too light.

Next time, I want to try the other new shops that opened at Eastwood. There was Quiznos, J Co, and Tous les Jours. ^___^

Happy New Year! Welcome 2013! ^___^

To welcome the new year, I accomplished all the chores I needed to do :) Which means clean my room, do a bit of laundry...and mostly, declutter. Remove excess items that are no longer needed. Decluttering, I believe, is an essential part of life. I mean this in the most general sense. Declutter not only the excess material things just lying around the house causing us stress everytime we see the mess that it causes...but also decluttering ourselves from things at the back of our minds that worry us needlessly. These are the things that we cannot change no matter what, and in order to move to a new chapter, we need to free ourselves from. This is essential so that we can see the way forward clearer...only by clearing up our muddled environment and thoughts. We learn to let go in order to see what is really important...what is simple...what truly matters.
