“If you can sit quietly after difficult news;
If in financial downturns you remain perfectly calm;
If you can see your neighbors travel to fantastic places without a twinge of jealousy;
If you can happily eat whatever is put on your plate;
If you can fall asleep without a drink or a pill;
If you can always find contentedness just where you are – you are probably a dog.
The one who knows realizes that difficulties are a part of every human life.”
~ Jack Kornfield
I love snowflakes despite having spent most of my life living in a non snowing city! As strange as it may be but there is something about watching snowflakes fall that makes me happy. Recently, I came across Steve Maraboli’s quote comparing people to snowflakes. Maraboli talks about how no two snowflakes are alike but each snowflake takes the perfect form for its journey. The path of each snowflake is different, some collide and damage each other, some collide and join together, some influenced by the wind. Basically, there are many transitions and changes it goes through, but no matter what the transition, it finds itself perfectly shaped for its journey. We too are the same. Each person is taking different journeys, different routes but we are heading to the same place and along the way, we sometimes bump into each other, we cross paths, we become altered, we take different forms. We too are 100% perfectly imperfect and we are all 100% perfectly imperfect for our journey.
I have been going through a burger phase, which all started as a result of tasting a home made steak burger recently. Since then, all I have been thinking about is, what burgers I could make. However, this time, a quick bite on a Sunday night brought me to Bonarche’s Gigantic Butchers Burger, comprising of tender grilled MSA porterhouse steak, fried onion, egg, bacon, melted cheese, aioli, beetroot, salad & Smokey BBQ sauce! Not bad at all!
P.S You also have to taste their crunchy fries! Give me fries anytime 🙂
Happy New Year everyone! 2013 has been a year of new experiences, special memories, awesome travels and of course wonderful food!

And more importantly, may you have a healthy and happy 2014!
Yay! Finally, the last class for the year and the last assignment done and dusted! Can’t believe that it’s been a full year of 3 nights a week and lots and lots of briefs and lots and lots of late nights…. It has been an amazing experience and I have definitely enjoyed using the creative side of my brain 🙂
And now… a good break until next year’s class!
