My Dreams

If my dreams have powers,
I would dream of a majestic house;
a house with a luxurious living room…
a grandiose staircase…
a magnificent dining area…
an elegant chandelier….
a towering balcony….

But my dreams don’t have powers,
So, i didn’t get a majestic house;
but a wonderful home,
With joyful kids welcoming in our living room….
with cheerful girls running back and forth our stairs…
with visitors admiringly looking at our chandelier…
With friends enjoying the afternoon view in our balcony…

If my dreams have powers,
I would dream of a perfect world;
where true friends are by your side in moments of sadness…
where neighbors are stronger and wiser….
where love is an act of surrendering to another person…

But my dreams don’t have powers,
So I have friends who are by my side in happy times,
because their joy is to see me delighted….
I have neighbors who are vulnerable because they have confidence in
themselves, and at some point they know we all stumble…
and  we love because we have faith in another person…

If my dreams have powers,
i would dream to believe that inner beauty matters most,
than outer beauty….
i would believe that friends maintain an open door…
i would believe that people are disciplined and organized…

But my dreams don’t have powers,
so i believe that outer beauty is inner beauty seen by the naked eye…
i believe that friends should only be interested in opening one door,
the door to my heart……
and i believe discipline is necessary but we have to be spontaneous
and enthusiastic, it makes us live life perfectly…

Marche @ Vivo City

I have been to Singapore many times. I love the city. And there is one restaurant that i have loved too.

It’s Marche in Vivo City.

I love the food. And i love the way foods are being ordered  and served.

As soon as you enter, they get you seated over a table where you will be most comfortable with. Then they hand you over a card which you will use to order food from the minifood stalls inside the restaurant. The incharge then would charge the amount of the food you order and you will have to pay for it as you exit. The cashier is located at the exit area.

It is a fun restaurant because you actualy get to do some sort of food shopping.

One Fateful Day

One day morning
When the sun was dawning
I see you smiling
“With you i’m beaming”
Your chinky eyes i noticed.

Soon that day over
When its getting colder
I hear you whisper
“With you i’m safer”
Your husky voice i heard.

Then the night was dark
When the stars spark
I feel you so stark
“Without you i’m in a murk”
Your standing tall lonely and cold.

I froze.
You’re a figment of my dream.

I am terrified.
You’re past behind me no more.

Christmas family puzzle

20151218_163919

as I was still cleaning up my table I saw this personalised Christmas puzzle gift made by my third daughter (the one who wrote lullaby…I posted weeks ago). she was 11 years when she made this. Each piece was a cartoon version of ourselves which she individually placed in an envelope and we too had to put them all together…

kids..you might wanna do this. so sweet ..

The Vikings

20140918_200933

They say the best way to a man’s heart is through his stomach…and the way to a friend’s heart is over an “eat all you can” treat.

Last week my husband and i got to spend some wonderful moment with a very dear college friend. He was able to make an advance booking in a restaurant, I initially thought is nothing but the usual.

I was wrong. ..

We went to a restaurant called Vikings. It is basically an “eat all you can” restaurant. At the first thought. . I was worried. .I am not a big eater…I don’t eat anything outside my comfort zone…and with the over towering price it told myself I should eat a lot…otherwise

i would regret paying it.

But as i took a tour of the restaurant, it made me reconsider my initial inhibitions though.

If you are a fun of Japanese cuisine well…you’ll fall in love with the sight alone..I did. For some weird reasons i am not a lover of raw foods…but i just can;t take my eyes off these things. They look so good…an i am actually thinking if they taste just as good as well.

I love pizza … and my oh my..They got the most delicious four cheese pizza I have ever tried..

If not for the fact that we paid an outrageous amount for this dinner i would settled myself with the pizza alone.

The thought of eating everything is outrageous. ..what’s more with the thought of having to drink all sorts of juices, teas, shakes….i am a “one flavor drink” type of person but that night i can’t even remember if i did try it all.

Who can ever resist these sweet temptations?. ..It was one of those moments when you’d wanna forget your blood sugar..your diet. ..and simply indulge…

20140918_184225

If you’re a meat lover…then you’ll enjoy it here..

20140918_192125

If you’re a seafood fan…then by all means you’ll enjoy their grill station..You get to choose by yourself and they grill it as you wait.

I regret it a little though because i got to notice it towards the end of our dinner when i was really filed – up.

And this is the best part I suppose. …the chocolate fountain…why the best part? Old and young alike were lining up to take a dip of this adorable sight of dripping chocolates..never mind if it’s deliciously sweet or not..the thought alone transports as back when we were young and carefree…when you would just wanna grab a mallows topped with chocolates..walk around…hop in hop out..singing…

I was tempted to ask why it was named “vikings”..

But as we culminate our dinner. ..I thought well maybe because vikings as we know them are big eaters…they always enjoy festivities top with wide array of food..and that exactly what we experienced…massive foods ….

It is wonderful to remember too that unlike any other “eat all you can” restaurants; when  quality is sometimes being compromised. .the vikings was different though. ..everything tastes sooooo good…I had a full stomach then… it is also good to note that it has maintained a certain “class” which we do not see or experience in any other restaurants with similar themes.

I say…it is a “must comeback ” place for me…

P.S. Vikings is located in SM Megamall in Manila so if guys are around better check it out.
