It’s been a while since my last post, isn’t it ? Well, to sum it all, I have been going through a rough patch in my life.. and yes, pretty rough that is. For those who probably knew me better, you would have known of what had happened. But I am also glad through this period of time that I found and knew who are the truly good friends, whom despite my long detachment from the “world”, still manages to retain that very valuable friendship till now. And probably because of this tough time in life, I also recognize that nothing in this world is absolute. I learn to “see open” (in chinese, we called it 看开了) and for sure whatever setbacks that we encountered in life now, it’s to brace us for a better change in the future (which I certainly hopes so!).
And so with that, I hope that my postings from now on will only be filled with cheer, joy and optimism ! Which is going to encompasses only happy thoughts, happy foods, happy meals, and lotsa laughter and enjoyment ! So stay tuned…
For a start, let’s begin with the upcoming double happiness festive on this coming Friday 14 Feb 2014, which happens to be the Valentine’s Day in conjunction with the 15th day of the Lunar New Year, also known as the 元宵节, which coincidentally is the Chinese Valentine’s Day too. And I happened to read somewhere that this only happens once in every 19 years ?? So the number of couples that’s going to get hitched on this day will be a record high one !
But if you are still waiting for an “auspicious timing” to make that very important first move, do mark down 14 Feb 2014 as the one and only day where your life is gonna be experiencing a whirlwind romance that might just swept you off the feet! And in order for that to materialize, nothing is gonna beat impressing your gal with the most renowned sweet treats, exclusively from Häagen-Dazs !
Here’s a few passionate selections for your considerations.
Love Story – S$22
The three dainty hearts are there to melt your heart in an instant ! Of course, if you are that adventurous and wanna adopt some plots from the dramas, do pair up with the kitchen staff in hiding that sweet proposal in one of these little creations. Hahaha ! But hey guys, though old a plot it may seem, it might just work the trick and touched your gal to tears in giving you the nods ! You never know ok. Hiaks.
