I had a craving for pie last Saturday. A good pie. Pie from a restaurant. Then it just happened that we drove pass this little bakery shop in bondi… It has a beautiful interior and red wine beef pie with real steak in it! Nice coffee, cute sugar jar and food served on a wooden board.

Love

My lovely friend Trish introduced Super Soul Sunday to me and I love it! It’s one of the programs on Oprah’s OWN where she interviews influential people on spirituality.  I gathered some quotes about love on the show. Of course some feelings are to be felt rather than intellectually explained and understood. I just find these words beautiful and want to share them with you. Marianne Williamson: Love is everywhere. DeVon Franklin: Love is the most powerful force of the universe. Caroline Myss: Love is beautiful, healing, perfect. Cheryl Strayed: Love is the only thing that matters. Love is the center of everything. May your life full of love <3

I’ve always loved the silver colour of this candle holder and its cute little shape like a typical Asian architecture. The walls are made of glass and the whole item has an antique feel allover it. The glass normally looks quite dark, because when looking through a particular wall, there is an overlay of two colours.

On this cosy Friday night, I used this candle holder for the first time and magic happened! The candle lights up the walls and all its beautiful colours are revealed when looking from above. I’m always fascinated with lights and find this candle holder very beautiful.

Just watched Barack Obama’s speech at DNC 2012 on youtube. I was very inspired by the speech, and touched by the emotions of the audience. True leadership is service. It is a spirit that brings out the best in other people. Wherever is your closest community, serve your people and take care of them like a president [...]

Trust

A little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter: “Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don’t fall into the river.” The little girl said: “No, Dad. You hold my hand.” “What’s the difference?” Asked the puzzled father. “There’s a big [...]

No defined beauty

Those who had a glimpse of the world underwater would agree fish are amazing creatures! If fairyland does exist, it would be very similar to the deep ocean. Each fish is perfect in its own ways,  some are powerful yet elegant, some are extremely delicate, and some are beyond your wildest imagination. Regardless of their [...]

Could be a ted!

July 27, 2012

The other day, I saw this white tiger on a balcony and thought it could rightly be someone’s ted (if you have seen the movie). Do you still make wishes and believe they will come true? If you really really want something, imagine that you are already in possession of it ~
