After dinner today, I wanted egg tarts; rather randomly, just because we were at a Macau restaurant, which led me thinking about Portuguese tarts, which was similar enough to egg tarts.
Blessed am I, that there was a “famous” “traditional” egg tart place in the area. So we trotted over to the shop.
Although it wasn’t hot and freshly baked.. and a bit pricey… blessed am I, to be able to fulfill my sudden food desire.
Even though it meant I didn’t sleep until 4am, I am blessed to have a friend who would call me, just to see if I am okay.
He said, through his observations, I don’t usually talk about my personal life, and for me to do so, it must really be bothering me. He just wanted to make sure I am okay.
I had to smile a little at his observation. He said I enjoy listening to others and prompting them with questions, but often and quickly redirect the topic back to others when it turns to me. I didn’t realise that I still do this, haha.
He lives in another country; and we don’t meet much if at all. So I am grateful, and blessed, that he would attend to these small details, and would, despite being thousands of miles apart, insist on calling. Just to make sure I am okay.
Thanks Jack 🙂
I can honestly say that I am not a fan of weddings. Why, you may ask…
Well for starters, it’s another big reminder that I still have a long way to go before I can even foresee me doing mine, I may feel obligated to go… (for close acquaintances), and setting an afternoon or evening aside for the occasion. (Kinda sound like a wedding Grinch, but at about this age… most people I know are getting or have already gotten married.)
But yesterday, I went to attend one of my best friend’s wedding. It had been really touching and emotional. This wedding had meant more than usual to me because I had been a witness of their entire relationship journey. From when they first met, to the series of occasional squabbles they may have. And now, they have finally tied the knot… which is the perfect start for the next chapter of their lives together.
I really enjoyed myself this time around because it was a well organized wedding.
A semi Western/Chinese wedding, with dancing, speeches, and great food with some old and new friends. The day had been rather tiring but definitely a great day~~~
I am blessed for tonight’s large meal, with friends of 22 years and 15 years respectively, completed with hours of just simple, enjoyable, conversation.
